VT marriage report: Good, if not great

by Jeremy Hooper

200804211850Earlier this morning we told you to expect a report from the VT Commission on Family Recognition and Protection regarding the future of marriage equality in the Green Mountain State. And now that report is ready for your inquiring eyes.

The good: The report seems to strongly suggesting moving the state towards full marriage equality is the most logical course.

The bad: They stopped short of recommending that the state allow gay and lesbian couples to marry.

The ugly: Once the state does the inevitable, many of the bridesmaids dresses that some of the less design-savvy (but well-intentioned) gay men and lesbians will choose for their parties will surely be hideous.

For more on the good and bad, you can read the AP reports below:

For the "ugly," look for any gay Vermonter on Myspace who is preaching the virtues of wearing stripes, polka dots, and corduroy concurrently, and then gauge their interest in committed monogamy.

Your thoughts

Tsk, really, Jeremy. We Vermonters know how to avoid such fashion faux-pas. It's called "flannel." :)

I just needed something silly to say, so that was it. But I assure you it's not a judgment against your lovely state. Even here in NYC, fashion missteps are in large supply.
