Y’all, this post is probably going to alienate some of you out there. Or maybe it will bring others in. Either way, I don’t really care. I usually try to keep my mouth shut about things like this, but tonight I just can’t help myself.
All I want to say is this: today, we moved one step further toward equality. The New York state Senate passed a bill legalizing gay marriage and it landed on Governor Andrew Cuomo’s desk with a promised signature.
I can’t explain how happy this makes me.
I’m not gay. No one in my family is gay, but I do have many gay friends. My personal interest in this matter lies in the fact that I believe that a world with more love is beautiful place. People are people, and love is love.
Way to go, New York. It’s a step in the right direction.
(Now if the rest of the nation could get its shit together, eh?)
