Gay marriage chart of the day

| »

With the breaking-new addition of Argentina amongst the ranks of sensible countries, there are now nearly as many people worldwide who can enjoy the right to marry whomever they want, unencumbered by any of those archaic gender-based prohibitions, as there are Americans. Bit of a bittersweet thought, really, and here’s a color-appropriate chart to match:

Chart: Number of People Living in Jurisdictions Which Recognize Same-Sex Marriage, 2001–2010
So sad(ly typical) of the US to be the only country to take previously granted rights away

So gay. I love it.
