Welcome to ...

The place where the world comes together in honesty and mirth.
Windmills Tilted, Scared Cows Butchered, Lies Skewered on the Lance of Reality ... or something to that effect.

Some gay couples are making the most of a 2015 Supreme Court ruling that made same-sex marriage legal across the United States, but many LGBT adults are just happy to have their rights without needing to put a ring on it. After the Supreme Court ruled in Obergefell v. Hodges that states could not ban same-sex marriages, 10.2 percent of lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender adults are now married to their same-sex spouse, according to a Gallup poll published this week.
Before the Supreme Court ruling, less than 8 percent of LGBT couples were married to a same-sex partner. In 2016, about 9.6 percent of LGBT adults said "I do" to their same-sex partner. LGBT Americans over the age of 50 were most likely to be married.
