Going Gay, But Not All of a Sudden


Ryan Sager makes a significant point about public support for gay marriage:

We all know there's a gap between how old folks feel about same-sex marriage and how young folks feel. What you might not quite grasp is just how tremendous that gap is….If people over 65 in each state made the laws, 0 states would have gay marriage; if people under 30 made the laws, 38 states would have gay marriage.

"This is a generational battle," Sager says, "and that means the younger generation wins…eventually."
