This is recurring topic of conversation with my friends. My conclusion is that future Americans will look back at the whole same sex marriage debate the way present Americans look back at racial segregation. But I had no data to back it up nor any sense on how soon this could occur.
Today I stumbled upon said data by accident while reading Paul Krugman‘s blog. Indeed, it seems like time is on gay people and civil right’s side. Add the facts that 1) new generations are more likely to support same sex marriage and 2) there are more young people than old people due to demographic growth (maybe not), and this could happen sooner rather than later.
