I don't think Gay marriage will ever be real for me till it's legalized in California.
There are five states where Gay marriage is legal, and it looks like Maryland is going to join the bandwagon pretty soon too, so that's six.
But that just doesn't seem real to me. I guess it's because I'm from California, and I've never been anywhere else, but it just seems crazy to me that somewhere in the U.S someone can go someplace and be like "this is my wife". or husband or whatever. Unreal.
Being gay is such a taboo topic where I am right now, that it seems so crazy to be as open as being married requires one to be.
I was so psyched when gay marriage was legalized in California. I was ecstatic. But then, it's only been a couple of years and it already seems so far away.
And the only time I ever hear about gay marriage is in insipid in-class debates at my high school, where I have to hear people justify their prejudices. And I've already lost my patience for listening to that shit and explaining and convincing people, and I'm only 17.
