Argentina passes gay marriage rights

"El matrimonio gay is ley in Argentina:"

I completely agree with the sentiment behind the statement of this commenter from Pharyngula:
I spent a big chunk of yesterday afternoon listening to the debate and watching twitter translations. It was kind of weird being so concerned with equal citizenship in Argentina, when I'll never see it in my home country or the state in which I live.
Also, Andrew Sullivan points out that Argentina is the 10th nation (the first in Latin America, and the second in the "New World") to legally allow gay marriage:
2001 Netherlands
2003 Belgium
2005 Spain
2005 Canada
2006 South Africa
2008 Norway
2009 Sweden
2010 Portugal
2010 Iceland
2010 Argentina
