Gay Iowa

So,now Iowa has decided that marriage is between two people who love each other. I’m shocked and delighted, and just a little disappointed that New England didn’t get to be the first multi-state Republic of Love.

I watch the kids in our local high school, gay and straight together, and I am floored that this change has occurred so quickly. When I was brought up, not only were we deeply homophobic, but we had an entire psychological theory to back us up: Men were afraid of homosexuals because of their own latent homosexuality; we all carried a little gay man inside of us. The prejudice, the fear, and the theory have all drained faster — unevenly distributed, of course — than I could ever have hoped.
