Most days, I have no idea what to blog about. This would be why I don’t blog most days. But for quite some time now, I knew what today’s post would be. But then this happened:

My news can wait. The happiness of an historically oppressed group absolutely takes precedent. Congratulations to all the same-sex couples, today and beyond, who hope to find love and happiness through marriage!



Today is a big day. In case you haven’t heard, for the first time in history, America has a president who has unequivocally stated his support for same-sex marriage.

[I]t is important for me personally to go ahead and affirm that same-sex couples should be able to get married.

In an interview with ABC in the White House, President Obama said he’d always hesitated to voice his support because he thought civil unions would be enough, that he’d overlooked the importance of the tradition of marriage. I don’t know that I believe this, exactly, but I also don’t care.

President Obama, you’ve won my vote in 2012. Just let’s please do something worthwhile with it.
