Massachusetts becomes the first state in the U.S. to make it legal for same-sex couples to marry. It follows a highly controversial decision from the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, striking down the heterosexuals-only restriction in the state’s marriage law.

This is just another one of those low points in Human history.
