As we prepare ourselves for more political campaigns, more commercials, more left wing v. right wing, we are certain to continue to hear about marriage equality. We are certain to hear closed-minded people blubbering about how same-sex couples don't know how to raise kids or that the children we raise are doomed to also be gay. My two children have two moms – does that make them less American? Less deserving of success? Less deserving of happiness? People do not choose to be gay. People are not raised to be gay. If that were the case, no one would be gay – it wouldn't be worth the torment, it wouldn't be worth in inequality. Below is a recent video of a young man speaking about his life – speaking about his two mothers. If you listen to him for just a couple minutes, it is easy to see that this man clearly has a bright future ahead of him. And guess what, he is no less of an American, no less of a man than you. Watch and open your mind.
