I find it both fascinating and disturbing the number of people who are freaked out by the possibility of Referendum 74 passing.
The fact of the matter is that when gay marriage becomes legal nothing will change for the typical homophobic heterosexual. Nothing.
Homophobic heterosexuals don't go to churches that will celebrate gay marriage. They don't have gay friends -- at least they don't think so -- so they won't be invited to any gay weddings. Domestic partnerships had no impact on their heterosexual unions, and neither will gay marriages.
Finally, what your children experience in school won't change either because schools don't talk about marriage (gay or otherwise). It's not part of the curriculum in math, science or reading. It doesn't come up in PE or music either.
So all you panicking homophobes, just relax. Except for the headlines, you won't even notice when gay marriage becomes legal. Your humdrum lives will remain the same.
But those of us who welcome gays in our lives and in our society, and especially those who are gay, will certainly notice, and we will be rejoicing! We'll be partying because we'll have lots of weddings to attend!
