My views have totally changed over the years. When I was a witness, I didn't really understand homosexuality and was lead to believe it was a sexual perversion, so that's how I perceived it.
Then, when I went into business, I met some. I liked these people! They were funny, smart, creative, kind, and just seemed to want to be accepted for themselves.
About ten years ago, I went to a child's third birthday party. I watched that little boy play and interact with everybody, and when we left, I told my husband that kid was gay. Now, at 13, it is so obvious. But, he is one of the sweetest, cutest, smartest, most loving kids I know.
Things are changing gradually. My favorite character on "Glee" is Kurt. He is adorable! Then there is the gay couple on "Desperate Housewives". They are hilarious. These television characters are not smoochy smoochy in-your-face, but they are openly gay and we see them work through their particular issues and deal with their unigue angst and watch as others learn to interact comfortably with them.
The only....only....problem I have with gay marriage is the issue of adoption of hetero children. If society calls same-sex unions "marriage", then there could be no discrimination whatsoever in the law regarding adoption. I still think about a hetero child being raised by a gay couple, and wonder if there could be psychological repercussions for that child, even with the love and nurturing they would get otherwise. That's my only concern right now.
