The Connecticut Supreme Court ruled today that the state's constitution does not allow it to discriminate in regards to who can get married — and that, as everyone knows, civil unions are not the same as marriage. This makes Connecticut the third state to recognize that denying equality to people based on the gender of their partner is as wrong, just as this picture is kind of perfectly right. Yay Connecticut! It can't be appealed to the Supreme Court, by the way, and will go into effect "shortly." [MSNBC, PFLAG]
