Canada

Fire and Ice

In the US, the Virginia legislature just passed an incredibly offensive bill attacking queer families.

Canada, by contrast, just issued linuxspice a Spousal Work Permit for being my same-sex "conjugal partner." My work permit has a little notation on it reading "Accompanying Family Member: Amanda Elif Yilmaz."

Virginia attacks queer families; Canada gives us an official document recognizing us as one. I think I know where I'd rather live.
