"The biggest argument that I see from pro-marriage-equality folks is 'we don't want to change your life, we just want to be equals.' I disagree. I do want to change other peoples' lives. The political and social spectrum in this country is wrong. Other people DO need to change. I shouldn't have had to live the first 17 years of my life as a secret. I dream of a day when a person of any age could be gay and never have to 'come out'. There is no guilt or shame in who we are, the only guilt comes from our surroundings. So yes, I do want to change those surroundings - and if that means telling someone that their views are wrong, then so be it. If that means teaching kindergarteners that a prince can marry a prince, so be it (for god's sake, we all knew a prince could marry a princess). America's social standards are so radically skewed towards the right that SOMETHING must change, and it must change soon."

No word of a lie I was just thinking about Lily and how nice it would be for kids if they never have to "come out" and who will have positive, healthy role models all around them when they are growing up.
