Also.Also.Also: Wow We’ve Really Got the State Dept Out Here Pretending Same-Sex Marriages Aren’t Valid

I fury-baked a salty honey pie yesterday and I’m here today to invite you all to fury-bake a pie of your choosing as soon as you get an opening in your schedule because not only will you have worked out a lot of your anger, but you will have also made a fucking pie which you can then eat for the next several days. It’s like finding $20 in your winter coat pocket, except it’s pie and also spring. Just trust me on this.
