Well, despite threats to the contrary, the world hasn’t ended (although the weather outside is, admittedly, wretched) with the commencement of civil partnerships in the UK. This legislation is long, long overdue (as was the ending of the anti-man-on-man-love law in 1981! No, really, 1981!!!) I just cannot fathom the vile people who are turning up protesting at town halls. At the risk of sounding like a hippy, having a little bit more joy and love in the world can’t be a bad thing, surely? In fact, when you think about it, how can anyone be opposed to something which is only going to bring joy to people’s lives?
Some people think of this law as a threat to the their own, straight, marriages. What smug, resentful, perverse logic is that? Oh well, as of this week, you lose and the law will never be repealed, so perhaps now would be a good time to leave the UK and live somewhere more in line with your own views? The weather in Iran is far from wretched at this time of the year.
