Finally #LoveWins, David defeats Goliath, light overcomes darkness, Blatter quits the FIFA, Kristen Stewart’s mum outs her, Ruby Rose appears fully naked in Orange is the New Black and Laura Prepon comes back for the 4th Season (I might have invented this last one, I’m just expressing a public interest desire).
Very proud to be living in this world right now, except for this Tinder thing I do, but the rest is great.
In spite the overwhelming fact that more marriages means more marriage cakes & more parties with bizarre music, this doesn’t change the fact me and you, are getting a partner any sooner (it would great if we get a partner for each of us, and we don’t have to share). Meaning: #Wifeapplicationsopen for all my USA readers.
So far I have had the pleasurein of being in-situ in two countries where equal marriage was being approved: Argentina (my home country) and New Zealand (where I live now), and generally the same thing happens:
- Gay marriage is always ruled/approved over night (don’t ask me why, it’s just the way it is)
- Religious conservative people say that the end of the world is very near, probably because they didn’t find out about Blatter and Kristen Stewart yet, but let me tell you one thing: the world is ACTUALLY becoming a great place.
- All the major brands start associating themselves to the gay cause to capitalise on the gay market. Surprisingly, there are much more brands talking about gay marriage after it’s approved than before. Did you see Coca Cola supporting gay rights before it became a law? No, I only saw Coke making ads about happy straight families and happy straight people.
But let’s focus on the good things: this ruling changes things for many people (not you and me as we stated before), but above all this changes people’s mind, mainstream people who didn’t have an opinion about it or whose moral grounds rely on what’s legal or illegal to be for/against something (not the smartest people, but the majority of people).
In case you haven’t seen a Twitter trends map yet, non-internet weirdos don’t tend to check this, the whole world seems to be talking about this:
Except for where I live: New Zealand, of course, where people only talk about their mortgages. But wait, maybe if I zoom a little bit…Sorry, my bad, people in NZ seem to be talking about #lovewins (and #gameday), and if new zealanders are talking about something, well marriage equality: you made it.
