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.

Member since:

if I were to not post this story just because some people would get upset, I would not be able to see some of my friends eye-to-eye.

So basically, it's about keeping your gay friends happy...
I've met people who were gay, educated and more or less ok, and I've met other people (50yos in public toilets trying to pick up young boys; MDMA-crazed, nearly-psychotic bisexuals acting in very embarassing ways) who were most definetely simply perverts.
Please don't be so self-righteous, your "goal" isn't as "noble" and self-evident as you would like it to be.

I dare you not to censor this message...
