Why do we make it complicated?

There was a video embedded here. It was a GREAT video. It featured a little boy, grokking the concept that two men could love each other and be married, and that it was ok. He was SO excited, in a world expanding kind of way. The video has since been made private, which is sad, but I have to imagine the makers probably didn’t intend for it to go viral. The little boy’s name was in the video and I can see that it might be a privacy issue.

But trust me, it was so great. I’m really grateful to have seen it.

It’s simple. You love each other. You want to get married. Does it matter if you are husband and husband or wife and wife or husband and wife?

No.

I mean, if a five year old gets it? Why can’t we?

    That’s the beauty of childhood, no prejudice or ingorance. That is something we learn as we get older, unfortunately.

    I got to see it before it went private. It was great. And the part I loved was when he got that the guys were husband and husband and they really must love each other a lot, and then he said, “I’m going to go play ping pong. Want to come?” It was awesome.
