A federal judge has ruled that Wyoming cannot deny marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
"U.S. District Court Judge Scott Skavdahl put his ruling on hold until Oct. 23 to provide time for government officials to attempt an appeal if they wish. The ruling could go into effect sooner if government officials inform the court that they do not plan to appeal the decision.
The ruling parted ways from many others in recent months because Skavdahl made it clear that he would not have reached an independent ruling striking down the Wyoming ban on same-sex couples’ marriages if it were not for the fact that the appeals court to which his cases are appealed had not already struck down other states’ bans.”
You guys!!! Everyone can now marry in my absolutely wonderful, beautiful, politically fucked-up home state! I’m so happy I’m tearing up, and my heart is bursting with joy! It’s about god damn time, Wyoming!
There is the appeal window, of course, but Governor Matt “Doucheface” Mead says he’s not going to try.
I currently weigh what I weighed about 8 years ago. It’s not saying too much, I haven’t fluctuated that much ever, but I’m still pretty proud of myself. Turns out not being constantly sick, having a job where you hiked 5-15 miles a day for a few months, and having some extra motivation in your life does wonders.
Weight aside (especially as it’s a pretty freaking trivial number), I feel better than I have in years. I’m really starting to love my body and what it does for me. These last couple days were kinda dumb (so dumb, what the hell?), but today I’m feeling renewed and back on track.
