Argentina: Law of the Land is Equal Marriage and Equal Rights to Adoption


So as we--a nation that promises bold leadership and being on the vanguard of human rights for all people (created equal, right?)--dither about DADT, letting DOMA die, fight state by state for the equal right to marry and adopt (Anita Bryant is coming back in OK), another country has moved ahead of us in this arena of justice:

ARGENTINA!

So the UK, Spain, Portugal, the Netherlands, etc., have moved ahead of us, another nation has joined them in being place of "liberty and justice for all": Argentina. This, one of the countries that is also beholden to the image of the machismo male.

Here are the 10 nations that provide equal rights to marriage:
2001 Netherlands
2003 Belgium
2005 Spain
2005 Canada
2006 South Africa
2008 Norway
2009 Sweden
2010 Portugal
2010 Iceland
2010 Argentina

And we are MIA...again.

Come on, Obama Administration! Do something heroic and brave, not tepid and incremental. Do something John McCain would never do...or Sarah Palin!

Pace!
