Massachusetts launches GLBT tourism site  

Wow, when Neil Patrick Harris sang, "Every time a gay or lesbian finds love at the parade, there's money to be made!" in Prop 8: The Musical, he wasn't kidding. Massachusetts' tourism office has launched a site aimed at attracting GLBT people. Their front page boasts:

"From mountains to beaches to cosmopolitan city life, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts is not just the first state in the nation to legalize same-sex marriage but is also one of the most welcoming. In Massachusetts, there is something for everyone to enjoy."

Good to know they're embracing GLBT people, instead of pretending they're not there. Thumbs up.

What next?

    This has always been one of my key points of arguing for gay marriage. Put aside your morality, your religion, your sense of justice, etc and get down to the fact that this is a capitalist country who's economy is in the shitter.

    And here we have a whole group of people, clambering, BEGGING to be allowed to have weddings. And most likely, crazy, huge, "OMG, we've waited so long" blow-out weddings. That means halls are rented, expensive dresses and tuxes are bought or commissioned as one of a kind, florists, caterers, musicians, photographers, limo drivers and maybe dove trainers will be hired.

    I mean, there's nothing to lose and everything to be gained!
