Top 10 Things Every Lesbian Should Be Thankful For
When it comes to loving the gays, Europe is leaps and bounds ahead of the United States. Maybe it’s because Europe wasn’t founded on Puritanical values, or maybe it’s because they seem to enjoy a much higher quality of life over there, or maybe it’s their amazing wine, but either way, Europeans by and large are much friendlier when it comes to accepting gays and giving us our rights.
As state after state in the U.S. rejects legalized gay marriage because of “the children” and “the Bible” (I put these in quotes because to my knowledge, neither the tenants of Christianity nor the sexuality of children are threatened by two loving people marrying each other) more and more European countries are jumping on the rainbow bandwagon. So far we have legal gay marriage in Sweden, Norway, the Netherlands, Belgium, and Spain. Countries such as Iceland, France, Denmark, Norway, and Portugal have laws on the books that give civil unions almost the same rights as marriages (in some countries, all the rights). I lived in Barcelona for six months and saw the poppin’ gay scene in full force (sadly, I was still a raging closet case at this point and pretended to like Spanish men, but seriously, Spanish women are some of the hottest in the entire world).
So to sum up: European girls are really beautiful, European food is to die for, and everyone is happy, less stressed out, granted much more vacation time, and better dressed. Looking pretty good over there. Now all we have to do is go get dual-citizenship!
