If these photos evoke any sort of disgust or resentment in your heart, chances are you’re a bigot and are unfit to pronounce judgment on any issues, social or legal, pertaining to the lives, rights and freedoms of these individuals:

Homophobes and conservatives see in these pictures something to oppose, something to rail against as though it were a crime against nature or humanity. Normal, rational people look at these pictures and see people in love. Nothing more. Nothing less. Because it’s all there is. And that should be celebrated.
