    In a fit of passion after Windsor was released I created this petition to demand that President Obama immediately take executive steps to provide same-sex couples in all fifty states with equal access to federal recognition of their marriage, and the attendant rights and responsibilities.

    Now, I am not a professional activist and I don’t have a platform to promote it, but if you boost the signal and we can make it to 100,000 signatures, it could have a huge impact on the lay of the land for marriage equality. President Obama could, in effect, enact a sweeping pro-equality measure with the stroke of a pen.
