In case you missed it, it's been Iceland week on TMNS, so it seems especially fortuitous, or at least serendipitous (is that even a word?), that Iceland legalized same-sex marriage today with a unanimous vote.
Let me repeat that last bit: by unanimous vote. How about that?
Also note that Iceland was the first country to elect an openly gay head of state. It's a non-issue there. How about that?
Gunnar Helgi Kristinsson, a political scientist at the University of Iceland, notes that same-sex marriage "has not been a big issue in national politics, it's not been controversial." How about that?
