A note on the Supreme Court's decision to affirm same-sex marriage

I remember being in my high school's student publication room watching the news when Massachusetts started allowing same-sex marriage. I also remember nobody else in the room caring.

Hopefully someday, gay marriage will become as mundane as non-gay marriage.

Hopefully someday, marriage will no longer stand as the arbiter of legitimate relationships in this country.

Hopefully someday, people will recognize that our struggles are connected, and that "not caring" is a way to keep others down.

Hopefully someday, people can just be who they are without having a whole big deal about it.
