Whell Ahl Bee: Slate reveals that one state already allows same-sex marriage and that two couples have already taken advantage of the law. The kicker here is that it's my home (conservative) state of Texas.

The Lone Star State doesn't allow any same-sex couples to get married. But there's a loophole in the law, because state law doesn't recognize sex-change operations. A man is still legally considered a man no mater what surgical procedure is performed. So if a man gets an operation to become a woman, then marries another woman, Texas would honor that relationship, because the transsexual is still considered a man under state law.

Funny how rabid extremism can breed unintended consequences.
