Good Reads/Random Cool Sites (11/8/2009)

Reasons to be cheerful, despite Prop 8 and Question 1: support for same-sex marriage has declined since 2003 - 2004 in only one state (Utah -- go figure). More importantly, age is the strongest correlate for supporting same-sex marriage or not. The younger a person is, the more likely s/he is to support same-sex marriage. In the 18 - 29 age bracket, over 50 percent support gay marriage in all but 12 states. More states have 60+ percent support than have under-50 percent support. Barring some sort of unforeseen ginormous backlash, it's only a matter of time until this demographic replaces older anti - marriage equality elders in sufficient numbers to legalize same-sex marriage. (Of course, that won't help the people who've already been waiting for decades. But still.)
