Rhode Island and Illinois Could Increase Freedom to Marry

The two US states are already progressive on consanguineous sex, as Rhode Island has no laws against it and Illinois doesn't prosecute if the lovers are adults. Now, both states are considering legislation to adopt the limited same-gender freedom to marry.

This is a step in the right direction.

Both states should adopt relationship rights for all adults, including full marriage equality. There is no reason why, for example, a grown woman should be denied the freedom to marry another woman, or two women, or a man and a woman, even if one of them is her sibling. It doesn't hurt anyone else.

I call on the lawmakers of Rhode Island and Illinois to lead the way in the US to full marriage equality.

To prevent spam, comments will have to be approved, so your comment may not appear for several hours. Feedback is welcome, including disagreement. I only delete/reject/mark as spam: spam, vulgar or hateful attacks, repeated spouting of bigotry from the same person that does not add to the discussion, and the like. I will not reject comments based on disagreement, but if you don't think consenting adults should be free to love each other, then I do not consent to have you repeatedly spout hate on my blog without adding anything to the discourse.

If you want to write to me privately, then either contact me on Facebook, email me at fullmarriageequality at yahoo dot com, or tell me in your comment that you do NOT want it published. Otherwise, anything you write here is fair game to be used in a subsequent entry. If you want to be anonymous, that is fine.

IT IS OK TO TALK ABOUT SEX IN YOUR COMMENTS, BUT PLEASE CHOOSE YOUR WORDS CAREFULLY AS I WANT THIS BLOG TO BE AS "SAFE FOR WORK" AS POSSIBLE.
