I am going to start today by saying that I know that not everyone is going to agree with what I have to say on this subject.  That's cool - the world would be a pretty boring place if we all agreed with each other.  However, although we may not agree with each other I would also hope that we can be civil about it.  If you're reading this and you don't agree please at least be kind enough to leave the mean comments at the door.  Thanks!


I believe that everyone should have the same rights and that includes marriage.  And honestly, if you have a problem with it then turn your head.  I don't understand why anyone is bothered by what someone else is doing.  It's not hurting you.  So if you don't like it don't pay attention to it.

Look at the state of the world.  People are killing other people, people are abusing other people, there is war and hunger and horrible things.  So why on earth would you want to stop happiness from happening?  To me, anything that's going to put a little happiness into the world is a good thing.  And seriously, we need as much happiness put into this world as we can get.

This is going to be a short one because I've always felt that legalizing gay marriage is pretty black and white.  If you find someone that you love and you want to marry them then you should be able to go for it!

I agree dearie, i think it's my life..to do with and believe in what I like. As long as no one is getting hurt. If people don't like it then F**k them. I don't want to be their friend. (not that i'm a closet lesbian or anything,...but if i was then....you know what i mean!! haha)

Connie

So well said, couldn't agree more!

Cafe Fashionista

Agreed one hundred percent. To each his (or her!) own! :)

Aubrey S.

Well put, Kristen. I agree 100%.

Angel

I agree what makes someone happy is what makes them happy.. why should someone stand in the way of that?

Maria Celina

In the words of Margaret Cho: Love is love is love.

I stand by your views on gay marriage.

Chanel

Reading this the morning brought some tears of joy to my eyes. It's so good to hear of people being so accepting and loving to everyone. On my wedding day people were turning their noses up and shaking their head as we took our photos. I guess you just kind of develop a "tough skin" but reading this says to me that we are progressing as a country, as a community, as families. :)

BTW. Good morning Kristen!

Alli

Agreed. It's never been a question to me. When 50% of straight marriages are falling apart I don't think it's fair to stop others who may have been together for 40 years or so already but can't legally get married because they are both women (or men). Everyone should have an equal chance to show their love. We all DESERVE that chance.

Lucie

Im actually 20, not 19, but thanks anyway!

Punctuation Mark

what you do on your own time is up to you... be happy that's all that matters!

SG to SP

Agree 100% Well said!

Victoria

dang the person above took what I was going to say...so I'll say it again. Agreed 100%! :)

prettylittlereckless

I totally agree. I think as time passes, more people will accept everyone gay straight black or white. I get so mad when my parents make comments about people who live a different lifestyle or are of difference race. I get so angry inside. People are people! Live and let live :)

westcoastsoul

Agreed! I mean no one is making you marry someone of the same sex so why do you care if anyone else does?

Stephany

I'll admit, for a long, long time I was on the opposite side of the spectrum. The Bible says that homosexuality is wrong, so gay marriage is wrong.

I have since altered my views (which largely had to do with the culture I was raised in) because I just can't sit here and tell people how to live. I can't say a man can't love a man, a woman can't love a woman. Their feelings are just as real as a man loving a woman.

Rebekah

I have to admit that I am against gay marriage, but I would never hold that against any one. I think in situations like that, people need acceptance more than anything. It's not for me to judge. I don't have to be for it, but I choose to accept people for who they are and what they choose to do.

Kristin

It amazes me that with all the problems in our world people are spending so much time and energy fighting someone's right to love.

Lindsay

Nicely said, Krysten! Now if only the rest of the country would get on board!

Emily Jane

Amen!!

Becca @ Our Crazy Boys

I'm right there with you!!

Meghan

Amen, sister! This is beautiful, and I couldn't agree more!

Jessica

That image describes my thought exactly! LOVE IS LOVE!

Poppy

My sentiment exactly! You're made how you're made and love is love, no matter which road out you are.
I'm glad there are so many agreeing comments too. Makes me a feel a little better about the human race, cos some days I just really despair, with all the hatred flying around, you know?

Jen

Loved this post! :)

steph anne

Amen!!! :)

Claire Kiefer

Yep, couldn't have said it better. It baffles me that there are people who want to prevent other people from marrying the loves of their lives! Makes me so sad.

Audrey Allure

I absolutely agree! I have a lot of gay friends (one of the cool things about going to a fashion university haha) & it would feel wrong if they couldn't get married too.

Sam

I definitely agree with you. Love is a beautiful thing and no one should try and stop love from happening.

Leia

Totally, totally, totally agree with you.

The Blonde Duck

Have a magical Monday!

Personally I'm against homosexuality since the Bible says it's a sin.

HOWEVER, the Bible is even more strong about not judging, and about befriending people from all walks of life. (like the life of Jesus, for example)

So my view is that I would never be in a homosexual relationship myself, but I would also never treat a gay/lesbian person any differently than heterosexual friends.

I also believe in separation of church and state, so if the country/states want to legalize gay marriage, I'm not going to stand in their way.

Elle Sees

this totally made me tear up! even if gays can't have "marriage" give them the same rights as straight couples. thank you for saying this.

Kimbirdy

exactly!! it's completely absurd that this is even a question in a country that was created for providing equality for all. we're all people and we all deserve the same rights.

cornflakegirl74

Amen, sister. Very well said :) (and I couldn't agree more).

Rachel

i completely agree! thanks for saying it so eloquently. I love it!

kelli g. { bug miscellany }

word.

couldn't have said it better myself.

thanks for posting this. :)

mrs. chinncredible

i was never passionate about marriage equality until i got married. now i understand how important it is and i don't want to deny anyone else the same rights and privileges i have. :]
