Same Love

I was about to get out of the car to go to Community Coffee (which, by the way, is my new favorite Coffee Shop).  But, a new song came on the radio and caught my attention.  The song began:  “When I was in the 3rd grade, I thought that I was gay, ’cause I could draw, my uncle was, and I kept my room straight.”  The song came out in 2012, so everyone else has probably heard it before … but this was the first time I heard it.  This song was made with a political agenda, supporting same-sex marriage in Washington State.  Just that one line says so much.

My first thought when I heard this song?  The kid should be a mathematician.  He’s defined gay as something quantifiable, not something abstract and based on feelings.  And, he’s learned this from observing society.  Genius.

After singing about stereotypes and the numbness of the digital age, the message of the song was “Underneath, it’s all the same love.”
