Not everyone (male or female) can rock a skirt, but we think Kanye West pulled it off during his December 12 benefit concert in New York.

If the desire to see their fellow citizens treated equally doesn't motivate voters and lawmakers in states around the U.S. to support marriage equality, perhaps the influx of revenue that Maryland, Maine, and Washington are about to bring in from the gays will make them a little more amenable to the idea!
The Williams Institute at UCLA has just released their estimates for the minimum generated income same-sex marriage will bring to those three states and it's enough to make any state proudly wave a rainbow flag!
