A lot of times in society, we hear the “two cents” of every adult and their dog about gay marriage; everyone has an opinion about everything. However, how often do we make a big deal about what children have to say, even about arbitrary things. What about significant topics, such as marriage equality?

Let me tell you, this video is a B I G  D E A L!

It’s quite interesting; this generation is becoming more and more accepting of marriage equality and gay people in general than previous generations. It’s true that we still have a long way to go, but we are making steps of progress. For those of you actually reading this, let me know what you think of the video.

This video has surely solidified how strongly I feel about marriage equality. Also, a tear or two may have been shed.

See how children of varying ages react to marriage proposals between people of the same gender!

The Boxtrolls

To be released in theaters by September 2014, “The Boxtrolls” is an animated film that isn’t based on gay marriage, but will hint at it.

Just watch the trailer. In the beginning, there is a child who appears alone. A man and a woman appear; a man and a man appear; then, a woman and a woman appear. In the end, trolls appear to take care of the child. Is it a sign of the times that gay marriage is now being interwoven into our animated movies?

It doesn’t matter what gender the parents are. What is important is that the child gets cared for in a loving environment.
