Reading some poetry from the 1600s by Matthew Prior: It's not always easy to tell with these poets, because they delight in making obscure points that can be difficult to decipher, but I think "Cupid and Ganymede" is an early defense of gay marriage:

I remixed the "Super Showcase Spokesmodels
If you're not familiar with it, please watch the hilarious original first:

I usually think of myself as being reasonably intelligent, but in certain areas, I'm the last to know. Maybe I'll give myself a break and just be happy that I'm making any progress at all. Cheers!
