I think that my son's recent Facebook post may not have been openable from its link on my blog, so I'm just going to reproduce the whole thing here, because I think it's important. Ahem:
I realize that as a white, straight male, I will never really be able to understand
the daily indignties that people who are "different" from me have to suffer
on a daily basis. Growing up, I never had to worry that I wouldn't be able
to marry the person I wanted, and I can't imagine what it would feel like
to have people I've never met discuss the validity of my feelings.
I know that one day, we will all be able to marry the person we love, and I
know that my children won't be able to understand why gay marriage was
once illegal. In the meantime, all I can really do is hope that five unelected
officials can cobble together some type of consensus that "equality before
the law" is more than an empty phrase.
And I always thought I couldn't be any prouder of him. Shows how wrong a mom can be!
