Google Fantastic initiative by Google. Anna Peirano details: "Google is launching a new campaign called 'Legalize Love' with the intention of inspiring countries to legalize marriage for lesbian, gay, and bisexual people around the world. The 'Legalize Love' campaign officially launches in Poland and Singapore on Saturday, July 7th. Google intends to eventually expand the initiative to every country where the company has an office, and will focus on places with homophobic cultures, where anti-gay laws exist." As proud as I am of living in the first country to legalise same-sex marriage, it's easy to forget we only did so in 2000. Also, it's about time the large technology companies of the world started using their power, reach, and money to do good. Hopefully, this initiative will transcend company boundaries, uniting them behind a common, noble goal.

I just did some relatively heavy-handed moderation - something I don't like, but alas. Discrimination based on skin colour, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, etc. is not allowed on OSNews. Advocacy in favour of denying basic civil rights just because of someone's sexual orientation, skin colour, etc. falls under discrimination.
