Well, we are sure starting the year off on the right foot with a ruling from the U.S. Senior District Court that the ban on gay marriage in Oklahoma is unconstitutional. The ruling was handed down by Judge Terence Kern but is stayed pending appeal meaning no marriages are happening in Oklahoma just yet.
This is another step in the right direction for equality in the United States. If it takes a state by state ruling, so be it. I just cannot believe that in 2014 we are still having the discussion about whether two consenting adults should be allowed to be married in this country. The most promising results to these rulings are the enormous waves of support I see among my peers. Young people seem to be overwhelmingly in favor of this seemingly obvious oppression to end.
I will keep tabs on the situation in Oklahoma, but all signs point positive as of today!
