The Numbers are Sort of In

Reports say that adults under thirty-five years of age favor gay marriage by a whopping 70%.

I do not know how large a sample they used or where this sample was taken. Perhaps 70 youthful people at Bennington and then 30 working stiffs nearby in Troy?

It doesn’t matter the exact number. All polls are biased, if not directly, than by unknown variables.

But it is safe to say this. Young people are mostly completely fine with gay marriage. Thank the mainstream media (note: mainstream) and Hollywood. I wink. ;)

But if your media is mainstream and everyone is watching what Hollywood makes (and let’s face it, more of it is made in Burbank and Studio City) then honeys, that IS the culture you are living in. The people make the culture? The culture makes the people? I choose the first.

These yelpings from the religious right are the sounds of dying dogs. They know a hard gay is gonna fall, is actually falling, in the best way. They cannot stop the youthful idea of equality from taking over. Besides, young people have such a huge job ahead of them---to save the country and the world---the last thing they have the energy for is to be hateful toward their friends, relatives and roommates.

So thank you young people, for being young and seeing clearly.

To the old and the silly, it’s a new world order:

It’s here. It’s queer. Get used to it.

We don’t bite. Unless you want us to.

Some bite more than others, of course...
