SB LOVES the Google!

Way to go Google! Google will now be paying domestic partnership benefits for gay employees. Thank you Google for being fair and, as usual, leading the way.

I wouldn't use any other search engine.

I think they should forget the sex aspect and allow people to register as "families" if they are living together in a more or less permanent arrangement - so, for instance, if my sister and I lived together, we could share benefits. What the hell has sex got to do with it? It's all about the loooooove.

This is seriously awesome. The tax hit I was taking with my partner on my insurance (pre COBRA) was quite substantial for someone living paycheck to paycheck.

Jeannie,
That would be fine. Just so everything is fair and square. Love you back.

ZenGato,
I'm sure it was. Fair is fair.

I know I trash Disney all the time for ruining Florida but honestly- they did offer same-sex benefits to employees a LONG time ago. And they should get credit for that.

I didn't know that. Props to Disney.

Love youse.

I didn't know that about Disney either... kept that low key, I think. Kept uncle Walt's ghost unaware.
