So aside from working at McDonald’s to fund my extravagant lifestyle (buying back issues of Italian Vogue and discounted Comme des Garcons) I tutor 11-year-old kids on Wednesday nights. This week’s essay topic is gay marriage. I’m quite surprised because they never give the students such a political and contentious issue. Most of the kids come from very conservative Vietnamese and Indian households and I’m sure that some parents wouldn’t have been too pleased to read some of these kids’ views because they all SUPPORT marriage equality. It’s definitely a generational thing.
One kid actually wrote: “Gay people should be allowed to get married and adopt kids. Some people get drunk and make babies without meaning to. Gay people don’t get drunk and have kids because it’s not possible. They have to want children in order to get them, and they probably make better parents anyway.”
