A new species of hermaphrodite land snail found in Taiwan has been named in support of marriage equality.

Biologists christened the species Aegista diversifamilia, referring to a diversity of family types, because it "represents the diversity of sex orientation in the animal kingdom".

So this hermaphrodite snail... It marries itself?

:) Well, no.  As far as I know, animals don't marry.

Oh, right. Why do we have marriage?

And age-old question.  

Here are Amelia Earhart's thoughts:

She doesn't so much defend marriage as set up the expectation that she might want out. 

And after the pace of achieving marriage equality.


Marriage equality now exists in 30 states. That's a majority.
