SEATTLE – The Seattle versus San Francisco saga exceeds the gridiron wars.

For the first time, Seattle has passed San Francisco as having the largest concentration of same-sex couple households.

According to a Seattle Times report, 2.6 percent of all Seattle households comprised gay and lesbian couples, married and unmarried. That’s the highest percent among the nation’s biggest cities, up from 1.7 percent in 2011.

The rate puts Seattle ahead of San Francisco, where gay-couple households total 2.5 percent of all households.

It’s not clear if the trends are due to couples moving to the Seattle area from elsewhere, or if more local gay and lesbian singles are coupling up.

    Oh good grief……..What a total disgrace!! I am ashamed of the State of Seattle, but I am not surprised. With all the political correct and far liberal people living there, it just doesn't surprise me at all, and that is why I am really happy I don't live there. I wouldn't want my kids growing up there, and being forced to believe that, that immoral life style is………….Uhhhh, good???, when it's really pretty disgusting. Sorry Seattle people, I just do not, and will not, ever accept such a disgraceful life style! No amount of government laws will not make me change my mind, nor force me to accept something I absolutely do not believe in! Pretty simple, really. You go your way, I will go mine, and never the twain shall meet!
