Thanks Oklahoma (no, not really)

Oklahoma Drops National Guard Benefits for all Couples

I often hesitate to tell people I’m from Oklahoma. Mostly because I get stupid responses like “do people actually live in Oklahoma.” Yes, and some of them suck. Apparently, my home state has taken extreme steps to ensure same-sex couples are not treated like their heterosexual counterparts. Unfortunately, these actions not only refuse military spousal benefits to gays and lesbians in the Guard but to straight spouses as well.
Nice going, Oklahoma- way to devolve and make Southern people look terrible. You may as we’ll bring slavery back while you’re at it,
I look forward to the day when ridiculous stories like this are a thing of the past.
