FINALLY! Today, the Supreme Court of the United States made history with its decision that states cannot ban gay marriage, a huge victory for millions of Americans. Countries like Canada and Britain made similar nationwide decisions years ago, but the debates surrounding gay rights have gained rapid interest in the U.S. over the past decade; this decision certainly puts some issues to bed!
Today’s ruling made the U.S. the 21st country to make same-sex marriage legal. I’m sure this news will encourage other countries to make similar changes in favour of gay rights. There are, however, still many people around the world who “don’t believe in gay marriage”, so to those people I ask, “Who are you to tell couples their love isn’t valid?” While they may never change their minds and simply accept that love is love, they definitely can’t take away this incredible victory for gay couples and supporters of gay rights around the world. I’m thrilled for everyone whose hopes and dreams finally came true today! 😊
