Why Is a Same-Sex Marriage Bill Historic When It’s Already Legal in Every State?


I’ve seen a lot of coverage on this and I couldn’t count the number of times I’ve seen the bill described as “historic.”

I can, however, count the number of times I’ve seen mention of the fact that same-sex marriage and interracial marriage are already legal in all 50 states: Zero.

I know people, probably you do as well, who’ve been in same-sex marriages for decades. I know people (including me) who’ve been in interracial marriages for decades.

So what is historic?
