Wow—George Will Said Something I Agree With

That is about the size of it—the people who oppose gay marriage are dying out. There really is an age-related demographic trend to support of marriage equality.  Call me a born romantic—I’ve been head-over-heels about posts I’ve seen this weekend like this, and have a hard time imagining how anyone would actually not want to see consenting adults happy and in love and able to make the committments they want to—legally and all that.  I know NOM and them exist—I just don’t understand how they think they have any business trying to forbid it. Who do they think they are? Where does their feeling of moral superiority come from? And how can they want to stick that supposed superiority in the faces of couples who may have even been together longer than some of those bigots have even been alive?

I do note there is an interestingly similar demographical relationship—and that would be regarding the ages of your Fox Mushroom Farm viewership.  Come to think of it, I’m reliably certain there’s an age bias regarding GOP membership, as well. This isn’t necessarily a post where I gloat in my cynical Generation X fashion about my enemies’ bodies floating on a river past me. Oh no. It’s just a celebration of life.

Which does march on, and only love remains—which is why I’m so puzzled when people try to fight it. We’re only human, and mortal. Why do we ever fight love? It beats the alternatives.

35 years ago when I was 10 I was waiting up for my dad to come home from work (he’d come in at midnight or one with nobody waiting for him) and while waiting saw a documentary on BBC1 or BBC2 about gay people.  A guy described how his partner was beaten to death after they came out of a club because they were holding hands and were seen by the “moral police”.

Upset by this when my dad came home I asked him how somebody could kill somebody else just because they loved (I was only 10, it was all love to me) somebody of the same sex.

He said “There’s people in the world that think they can tell everyone else who to love”.  Comforted by this he then added “Don’t tell your mother we talked about this she hates gay (yes he said gay) people”.

My dad would’ve been 73 yesterday.  He died in 1999.  I love you dad, thank you for everything you taught me.

Also, too…

And how can they want to stick that supposed superiority in the faces of couples who may have even been together longer than some of those bigots have even been alive?

Probably longer than a lot of them have been “properly” married.
