Congratulations, America! - helen-louise
Congratulations, America!
On electing the better of your two options for President :) Given how the Electoral Colleges work in most states, with winner takes all, I was genuinely very worried about the state of the world today. But it's Going To Be Okay.

Also congratulations to Maine, Maryland, and Washington for voting to allow same-sex marriage. The gap between "red" and "blue" states grows ever stronger.

In other news, this is relevant to our interests. Veteran British actors Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Derek Jacobi are teaming up to play a bickering gay couple in a new ITV1 sitcom. Vicious has been created by Will and Grace writer Gary Janetti and award-winning playwright Mark Ravenhill. Sounds rather interesting!

Don't forget Minnesota, who may not have voted (*gag* that we're voting on the civil rights of others) for marriage equality, but who did vote against an amendment to their state constitution that would have defined marriage as only between a man and a woman.

They had rather more than two options, but yes.
