Just in case you’ve been completely disconnected from civilization today and haven’t seen the 5 gazillion Facebook posts and news articles, The Supreme Court has officially legalized gay marriage (or as I like to call it…marriage) across the United States.
The long and short of it is, this means that any state-level ban has been trumped by the ruling and is null-in-void.
Things that haven’t happened because of the ruling:
Heterosexual marriages haven’t suddenly ended [If it did, it’s not because of this].
Churches haven’t suddenly burst into flames.
Nobody’s head has exploded.
Nobody has suddenly chosen to start getting married to animals.
Nobody else’s life has been affected in any way, except for the people in love who can now get married to their partner.
All in all, I’d say it’s a great day for love and equality!
