Cake Toppers Watch: Celebrate?

It can be hard to muster a ton of energy to celebrate a decision that, by every rational ethical metric, should never even have been up for debate – to applaud a social overhaul that ought to have always been the default and never a radical stance. (If you’re stabbing me repeatedly in the hand with a fork, do you expect me to thank you for stopping?) All arguments opposing same-sex marriage are dumb, have always been dumb, and will always be dumb, and this conversation has been circling the drain for so many tedious, bad-faith, repetitive years that I don’t even feel the need to qualify that statement with examples. You know what the arguments are. You know they’re dumb. (I think law professor and “traditional marriage” defender John C Eastman summed it up best when he told the New York Times: “Bwah bwah bwah bwah bwah bwah bwah, the Devil!!!” or something.)

A wonderful piece by Lindy West on Guardian Online - which I almost didn't read cause of the cake toppers above.

  1. I've had those two bloke models. I believe they are from Frinton on Sea. Triple scones all round.
