Well isn't gay just so cool now?

I’ve never purported to be much of a marriage fan. As NZ celebrates its liberation of gay marriage today, I'm finding it hard not to scoff at the hypocrisy of "middle NZ" deciding "gay" is cool, now that it can be "coupled" (pun intended) with "married".

Suddenly Tourism New Zealand is flying couples across the ditch, radio stations are shouting fabulous gay weddings. All in the hope of getting a bit of media and brand value out of this historic event?

Call me cynical but it all feels a little contrived. How come gay wasn't this cool before marriage?
