After a full day of love, hate, confusion, and stupid threats, I am happy today, thinking about the SCOTUS decision in ruling it unconstitutional for states to prohibit gay marriage. I’m still laughing, smiling, and enjoying the responses and overwhelming humor flying around the Internet. Here are some of my favorite Tweets:

@SethMacFarlane
Each new civil rights conflict is seen as ‘different than the last’. But bigotry is bigotry. So next time this happens, don’t take so long.

Hugely emotional that marriage equality has finally come to the U.S. History! Love ALWAYS wins.

NYT Politics @NYTPolitics
REJOICING AND SMILING AND CHEERING AND YELLING AND DANCING AND CELEBRATING!!!!!!!! YES!!!!!!!!!!

Dan Savage ‏@fakedansavage
The biggest thanks goes to LGBT people everywhere who came out. You changed the world.

Telling my parents I was gay in 1980 didn’t just mean telling them that I was sexually and romantically attracted to other boys. I was also telling them that I would never have children and that I would never be married. That was then. This is now.

Chris Kluwe @ChrisWarcraft
Wake up to SCOTUS doing the right thing. Awesome. It’s about damn time.

Oh yeah, and Chris Kluwe also told the NFL to get on the right side of history. I love that so much.

This is a great day, and a great time to be alive.
