And Chilean television calls the election for PINERA. I really hope the Bachelet government's dithering on marriage didn't kill us.

Sigh. Guillier (the left candidate) is doing extremely poorly in early results in Chile. If Pinera (right wing) ends up winning, what does that mean for marriage equality in Chile?

I'd be more nervous if it were like Ireland, with a campaign leading up to an election day. But keep in mind that "ballots" are beginning to be mailed out today in Australia, and most people are likely to mail them back fairly quickly. I suppose a whole lot of people could be lying to pollsters, but it certainly seems like the bigots simply don't have enough time to change people's minds.

At least that's what I'm hoping.

The Australian High Court has just given the go-ahead for the gay marriage plebiscite. Sigh. Well, at any rate I hope that the good guys in Australia can put this behind them and get ready to roll up their sleeves. This isn't gonna be pretty, unfortunately.

So then what's going on in the Yucatan? Didn't the Supreme Court leave their marriage ban alone? If so, then what's to stop other states from doing the exact same thing?
