Two gay men are talking about the recent Supreme Court ruling. One of the men says that his daughter asked for a guitar for her birthday, but he is considering buying her a drum set instead.
“Trying to encourage her lesbian tendencies, eh?” his friend says.
“She can be whatever she wants to be.”
“Back in the ’80s was the daring time for music. You had all these male rock singers putting on eyeliner and wearing flamboyant clothing.”
The first gay guy shakes his head. “That wasn’t about androgyny — it was about rebellion.”
[pullquote]”Kids nowadays don’t need to rebel,” his friend says. “Everything goes, and they can be whatever they want.”[/pullquote]
“Kids nowadays don’t need to rebel,” his friend says. “Everything goes, and they can be whatever they want.”
“Hey, the Supreme Court says they can get married.”
“Yes,” the first guy agrees. “It’s wonderful.”
They sit in silence for a few moments.
The first gay guy sighs. “I miss the rebellion.”
His friends sighs too. “Ah, rebellion.”
