I'll be joining you. Wanna be roomies? Which would you prefer; Vancouver or Toronto?

Vancouver has milder winters, but it's also subject to earthquakes and landslides. So it would be just like Southern California. :P

But Toronto has an active LGBT fan community, plus the third-largest LGBT community in the world after SF and NYC. So there's a tradeoff.

Sometimes it sounds like Canada's just doing this stuff to annoy America.

"Oh yeah? You guys are rewriting your laws to disclude gay marriage? HA! We'll legalize it! You're discharging your insanely competent gay soldiers? We'll marry ours! On BASE! Ha!"

Sort of a smug, contrarian sibling rivalry with America in the corner stamping its feet and calling Canada dirty names.

Re: Via friend-of-friend-of-friendlist.
Welcome. :)

A comedian once called America the adolescent of countries - after all, they've only been around 200 years, whereas everyone else has been around for thousands.

Our attitude with soccer? "Gah, just pick up the ball!"

Universal health care? "Gah, that is so gay."

:D

Being in the marines, I can officially say it sux. I really wish the US would take an example of Canada, and adopt that policy, but I am not to hopeful on that happening any time soon. My bf is leaving the marines in a couple of months because he doesn't want to stay in with the current policy. I still have another three years. Guess I can dream. He's over there sleeping right now. So cute. Hehe.

San diego huh? Thats where I have wanted to live for years, and I have some family out there. My bf also wants to go there after I get out of the marines. Stupid narrow-minded, unenlightened, bigoted, ignorant, hateful fools. I absolutely hate the stupidy. Oh well, I'll deal.

I know. It sucks. I hate being a military bride. :)

The CBC put out a documentary I saw that followed a transexual through the process of a her sex-change. She started as a male soldier, was granted time off to undergo the surgery, and returned as a female soldier. It was quite a story, I wish I could remember more detail.

I remember reading about that. Gads I wish we'd come out of the Middle Ages. :(

This proud Canadian would like to gloat a moment over being happily, legally gay-married. :)

And proud you should be. It galls me that my lover is about to risk his life in a pointless war for his country and unlike straight couples who can get married and rest easy, he and I get to spend a lot of time drawing up legal documents to get ready for the worst, and even at that they might be contested by his family.

Grrr...

My bf Tim is really hopeful that the military is going to allow gay servicemembers within the next couple of years, but that does nothing for the fact of getting married. I will in no part, even if they except members to serve openly, be able to recieve any money to help out with living, because I will still not be able to marry. Thus, no BAH. I wish I could just get out of the military and become an activist, politician, or lawyer sometimes. I want to make a difference, but doing what I am doing now is not helping at all. I should just go to Canada and serve in thier armed forces.

Well if the military allows gay men and women to serve, and they can get married in Massachusetts (and civil unions in Vermont and Domestic Partnerships in California and everywhere else)... well, it seems to me to be a sort of domino effect. It'll happen, someday, but how soon is the question.
