ok, so i can still cry about some things

today the united states of america became the 18th country to recognize same-sex marriage nationwide.

the supreme court decided, alas only 5:4. John Roberts wrote in his dissent: "Indeed, however heartened the proponents of same-sex marriage might be on this day, it is worth acknowledging what they have lost, and lost forever: the opportunity to win the true acceptance that comes from persuading their fellow citizens of the justice of their cause."

he is wrong. no supreme court decision ever prevents true acceptance, indeed, it has often led to more of it simply by normalizing it. and contrary to wade vs roe this decision will not remain contentious for decades to come, because up to 63% of americans already support same-sex marriage. but this is forever: misters roberts, scalia, thomas, and alito are on record for having been on the wrong side of history.
