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'm more worried about enforced homosexuality.

The gay stuff isn't Google's business, but if it's a good thing then it's a good thing they're doing it even though it's probably a strategy to get good PR. Apple already supports gay marriage.


I can hardly refrain for writing a comment in which I did intend to put in the same frase "Apple users" and "homosexuals". ;)

The really nice thing is that Apple world is pink and shiny. ;)

I just visited a shop that had iPhone covers you can make any gay person happy with, certainly if they like fake diamonds. Some were so fancy they'd need a cover themselves.
