As for the poll; Who are the other 12??:shrug:

Yeah ... but Iowa?
"Middle America" reels under Iowa ruling
Perhaps it wasn't the most romantic ceremony in the history of the world, but Sean Fritz and Tim McQuillan became the first gay couple to be legally married in Iowa.
Wait, wait, wait. Iowa?
Details are sketchy; early reports only cover the fact of Polk County District Judge Robert Hanson's ruling said to strike down Iowa's decade-old ban on homosexual unions.
The stay has since been issued, but County Recorder Julie Haggerty's office reported 21 applications received for processing, and at least one couple made it through their vows.
According to the Associated Press:
Reactions vary. Iowa homosexuals, obviously, are thrilled. Others, however, less so:
I love this "activist court" bit. I suppose, once I get my hands on the ruling, we can see just how activist the ruling is, but so often the phrase is just a buzzword for "something conservatives don't like". For many who don't see such outcomes as the result of untoward activism, the accusation seems a little like calling someone activist for obeying the speed limit.
In the meantime, though, we need not worry that this means the end of civilized society. And, hey, it gives the kids something to do:
We'll raise a glass. Congratulations, Iowa. I'm impressed. Really, I am.

Other than gays and lesbians, how many other groups in the world define themselves by their sexual preferences or sexual perversions?

Nope, the Angelina I make out with is the Mr & Mrs Smith one.

Other than hetero- and homosexuals, how many of those preferences, perversions, deviations, affinities, or otherwise fall along gender lines?
And they all go out marching in the streets declaring those sexual perversion for all the world to know? I don't think so, Tiassa.
And do they, like gays and lesbians, go marching proudly in the streets declaring the glories of those perversions?
It's not a perversion and I don't march.
