|That's right Italy, you're up there |
with Armenia, freaking Armenia...
"Italy can't remain the tail-end in Europe in the field of civil and human rights..."
-Monica Cirinna, Italian Senator
and totally sick of this shit
|Italy's not exactly famous for|
starting out on the right side...
"Italy is one of the few western countries that is still resisting this deviation."
-Massimo Gandolfini, taking a stand,
you know, against equality
|We should probably enjoy |
this feeling while it lasts...
Anyway, they're calling today's gathering 'Family Day' and protestors are descending on Rome like goddamn Visigoths. Although its organizers predicted that the event would draw as many as a million people, actual numbers are in the tens of thousands which is still a lot of angry homophobes for a country that gave us gladiator movies.
|Fun Fact: the actual Sack of Rome in 410 A.D. involved something like 40,000|
Visigoths, not far off from today's protests, which, holy shit Italy. I mean, holy shit.
