The New Normal
Do you think a family of four living in 2012 is happier with more square feet? Do you think a family of four living in 1950 was deprived with less square feet? I don't think so.
In this neighborhood in 1950 it was "normal" to build a 1400 square foot house. In this neighborhood in 2012 it is "normal" to build a 4500 square foot house. The "norms" have changed. Just like it was "normal" to be anti-gay in 1950's, but today it's less "normal" to be anti-gay. The norms are changing.
And I look forward to the day when gay marriage is a normal part of our society...
