    Argentina becomes the first nation in Latin America, and the 10th in the world, to legalize gay marriage. This comes as a surprise to many average folks, who stereotypically associate Latin America with unbridled machismo and conservativism, and a lack of political sophistication.

    To me, this is a major step in the right direction. Argentina has proven that it has far more integrity with respect to human rights than originally credited. Granted, this development should not be overstated - especially considering the many other issues the country has - but I feel the threshold this development represents should nonetheless be acknowledged.

    Thoughts and feedback?

    And to think near-3rd world countries are ahead in humantarian(?) acts than the so-called civilised folks. It's almost funny.
