Love Should Not Be Hidden, But Proud

I interviewed a Communications Major student at Texas A&M University, who happens to be a mother. This is her response to the article and the issues covered within it:

Me: “Do you think it’s fair that Edie and Thea were engaged for so long and that they couldn’t wear an engagement ring? Do you think it’s right that they are denied tax status and health benefits, things that other married couples have the privilege of?”

Interviewee: “No it’s not fair. This is a nation founded on so many freedoms. We still haven’t learned from the past! Stop unfairly treating people. Leave them alone. Be who and what you want to be and let others do the same.”

Edie Windsor and Thea Spyer

Look at how happy they look!

Children React To Gay Marriage

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!
