People always say that We want gay marriage, and you shouldn't care because it doesn't affect you at all. I've even caught myself saying this...because it's what I think. But I never really thought about what I was saying.
Corvino, from 365gay.com, brings up an interesting point. Of course we want people to care, to change how they feel about us. That's the whole point of trying to get gay marriage legalized; so that other people can see how in love and happy gay people are.
I'd never really thought about it that way. It's kind of like a saying gay marriage is a 2-sided coin: on one side, you don't want people to care what you're doing behind closed doors; but on the other you want them to care more than anything about you so that they'll be okay with how you live your life.
