When I was a child, I used to think how lucky my grandparents were to have lived when they did. They got to see so much happen in their lives. I mean, they were alive before television. When everything was black and white! (I was maybe not the smartest kid.) I felt kind of sorry for myself because the world was already so developed by the time I came around. What else could possibly happen in my lifetime?
So, so much.
When I told Liam about the Supreme Court decision to strike down the Defense of Marriage Act and showed him the picture I was working on (I think this was the first time I've been inspired to make something for no other reason that it felt like I should), he simply said, "Cool. More rights."
Because in his world, ruling that gays and straights should have marriage equality is just a technicality. Of course all people should have equal rights. Discrimination is so last generation.
