A lot can change in just five years,
Come on friends, lend me your ears:
Gays couldn’t marry? Now they can;
An increase in our lifespan;
Bitcoin suddenly worth lots more;
ISIS finally lost the war;
Smartphones getting smarter (well,
otherwise they would not sell);
Climate changing, sea levels rising
(this should not be so surprising);
We had two genders, now there’s more;
Jobs keep being moved offshore;
A lot can change in five years colonel,
Yet one thing seems to be eternal,
a sad invariable you can count on:
my comics are still poorly drawn 🙁
Here’s another comic ’bout
freedom of marriage, go check it out.
The first country to fully legalize gay marriage was Netherlands, back in 2001. In the United States, gay marriage was legalized on federal level only in 2015. Germany and Finland, countries considered as extremely liberal, legalized same-sex marriage only in 2017. The change is slow, but still, it’s a complete U-turn from how western countries treated homosexuality, say, 70 years ago, when Allan Turing was prosecuted for homosexual acts by the UK government. In other parts of the world, homosexuals are still being persecuted or even executed on accounts of “moral turpitude”.
Which makes one wonder – how will the world look with regards to legalizing gay marriage, say, five years from now?
