Same sex marriage

No topic right now is hotter than marriage equality in the U.S. Tuesday, March 26th, 2013 marked a very important day in the struggle that the LGTB community have had in getting equal rights to marry the person that we love.

The U.S. supreme court is debating on the constitutionality of Proposition 8, the law in California which banned same-sex marriages in the state. Opinions as always are very divided - on the one hand you have moralistic "Christians" saying that marriage is between a man and a woman and all that tired crap, and then there is the other side that says that this goes beyond gay marriage and it's more a question of human equality.

This truly is a hot topic and one that, regardless of the court's ruling, is not likely to go away. Yes, opinions are strongly divided but according to a recent poll done by the Huffington Post many Americans have changed their minds about gay marriage in recent years, especially people under 30, which suggests that the newer generation of adults will be more tolerant and open-minded.

So what now? Well, all we can do now is wait for the Supreme Court's ruling, but it's high time that people in the United States and all over the world see that until every person is granted the same rights, the rest of us will always be second-class citizens.

Stay tuned!
