Optimistic About Same-Sex Marriage

Judging from this election result, I think we of the non-hetero persuasion and our progressive allies are gonna be okay. Bouquets of Gray has a good analysis of the implications of the election, to which I will add that Judy Longfield was defeated in Whitby-Ajax by Jim Flaherty, both of whom are anti-gay rights.

Judging by the picture painted by that preliminary analysis, it looks like the net effect, at worst, could be that a few more anti-SSM MPs were elected. But the margin of the pro-gay victory last time around was sufficiently large that I'm not worried. And I'm gay, so if anyone would be worried, it'd be me.
