According to the LA Times, eHarmony is going to start allowing same-sex matches on its dating site. eHarmony has been known for its policy of only allowing hetero matches up until now, and this ignited a controversy over at Weddingbee when it announced its sale to eHarmony in October. Though the change apparently comes as a result of a settlement with a member who filed a complaint with the company, at least it’s a step in the right direction (albeit a forced step).
Though I find the site kind of awful for reasons unrelated to its historic stance on gays, I do believe in equal rights. Let all of us, gay, straight, bisexual, and transgendered be allowed to participate in whatever super lame dating sites we choose!
We’ll see if this is enough of a change to get Mrs. Gingerbread and Mrs. Hummingbird, and other LGBT or LGBT-sympathetic ‘Bees’ to resume blogging about their weddings once again on Weddingbee. Interesting timing too, what with all the outcry over the passing of Prop 8 here in California. What do you think?
