Once women got the right to vote, they didn't consistently vote dry – in part because an unintended consequence of Prohibition (working in tandem with the social and economic aftermath of World War I) was that for the first time in U.S. history, drinking was no longer the exclusive provenance of men. Women held or went to parties where alcohol was served, and they also went out to speakeasies. The Women's Organization for National Prohibition Repeal turned the WCTU's home-hearth-and-health arguments right back at them, saying, "Children are growing up with a total lack of respect for the Constitution and for the law."
This next LOL animal is optimistic about the future of same-sex marriage legislation, inspired by the fact that a vote in Washington state this week not only granted the same rights to homosexual couples that heterosexual couples get (y'know, besides the whole "marriage" thing) but it marked the first time that legislation to dramatically expand gay rights has been approved by a statewide vote of the people anywhere in the US. Yay! Next stop, marriage!
