If somehow you didn't already know, same-sex marriage (which should be called marriage) is now legal in all 50 states of the United States of America. It was a 5-4 victory (nail-bitingly close). Finally!
I'm so so so happy that all people will now be able to marry the people they love (unless it's like their grandfather or pet dog or something).
However, though this is such an amazing step forward, there is still a lot of work to be done around LGBTQ rights, mainly concerning discrimination. I'm not saying that this victory shouldn't be celebrated, as change happens in increments, but it's important to realize that marriage equality doesn't solve transgender hate crimes, workplace discrimination of lesbian or gay employees, or the bullying of LGBTQ children in schools. I have experienced the latter (I identify as bisexual/queer and initially came out as a lesbian in middle school), which really makes one feel alone and hated. I don't want any other young children to feel that way for expressing who they are.
Personally, I want to live in a world where "same-sex" marriage can be just called "marriage," where people don't have to "come out" as gay or bisexual or pansexual, and gender doesn't matter.
I want to live in a world where it doesn't matter what gender someone chooses to love. I want to live in a world where it doesn't matter what gender someone identifies as. But, this ruling is the first huge step towards overall equality.
