I saw this on my niece's Facebook page (thanks Ms. M) and it struck home: I'm the mother of an openly gay, married daughter and I live just a hair south of the state of Vermont. The "V" stand for "Very"( mixed bag). While marriage equality is now the law, there is this mix of people that appear to really clash over a couple of issues: not the least of which is civil and legal rights for GLBT people. The battle over legal unions was hard-fought in Vermont in 2000, and in 2009, marriage for GLBT people become legal.
