Interactive social networking website Facebook has recently launched its same-sex couple icon. With world leaders like President Barack Obama supporting same sex marriages, more and more groups have become open-minded in embracing and including this marginalized sector of society in their respective businesses and social concerns. About a few weeks ago, Apple also launched its same-sex couple and family emojis in its iOS 6 operating system. A similar support was also done by the Oreo’s Facebook page. Last week, the cookie company posted a rainbow-colored, six-layered Oreo cookie on interactive websites Twitter and Facebook.
Since same sex marriage is not honored in a lot of territories, couples can now have an avenue to profess their eternal love to their better half. In the United States, it is only legal and honored in nine states. Discrimination is still very much existing. In these states, married gay couples do not receive the same tax benefits as married heterosexual couples enjoy.
