This week, Iceland’s Prime Minister Johanna Sigurdardotti married her longtime partner Jonina Leosdottir, making her the first head of government in the world to marry a same-sex partner. The couple married last Sunday, which was both the international day for gay rights and the day that a new law legalizing same-sex marriage in Iceland went into effect. Sigurdardotti called the new law “cause for celebration for all Icelanders”, according to the Examiner.
But I doubt it. Congratulations, Ms. Sigurdardotti and Ms. Leosdottir, and to the Icelandic people, who manage not to be a) horrified by the notion of a female leader let alone a b) an openly lezbuyun one.
