Though this news is a couple of weeks old, I still think it’s important to point out just what’s being done. Here we have a Bible Belt state with a pretty heavy reputation for bias against GLBT people. Back in November 2008, Act 1 in Arkansas banned unmarried people from adopting, which was just a rewording to make it seem less discriminatory, since the previous wording, an outright ban on adoption by gay couples, was deemed unconstitutional. (Gay marriage is, of course, neither legal nor recognized in Arkansas.) Now, a year and a half later, the law is being overturned. Which means that more children can find happy homes with people who will love them, regardless of marital status or sexual orientation. It’s only a little step in the right direction, but it’s a step all the same.
