Your thoughts ?

Excellent IMO.

With gay marriage, full gay adoption rights, reproduction rights and 3rd gender ID rights now in place, we have completed the march for equality here in Austria.

I don't know about Austria, but in Germany it took so long because CDU/CSU kept blocking it. Most CDU/CSU voters supported SSM by the 2010s, but the CDU/CSU membership still heavily opposed considering the most religious Germans remain the most active CDU/CSU voters (and members). The VP (Austrian Christian Democrats) has continuously been in government since the 1980s, so I guess they also kept blocking gay marriage? Tender definitely knows the answer so I guess we have to wait until he reacts Tongue. Austria is quite a bit more religious than places like the Netherlands or Sweden anyway.

Looking at the map, it seems most places that you would expect to have, has it now.  It will be nice when the western hemisphere is more dark blue, but how long until the backwards, homophobic sh**tholes in Africa and Asia catch up?

East and SE Asia won't be too long in catching up. Thailand and Vietnam iirc are introducing civil unions, Taiwan is planning on ignoring the overwhelming referendum against SSM last year, Duterte has endorsed SSM (although god knows what that dude is up to half the time) and it isn't impossible to imagine gay marriage in ROK/Japan/China in the next few decades.

One big problem that a lot of countries have is they don't even have civil marriage to begin with, which includes most Muslim countries and Israel. Not that Iran or Saudi Arabia would be introducing gay marriage anytime soon even if they had it.

And it's becoming legal pretty soon in Costa Rica.
