Victory! Let us rejoice in a chorus of "Yaas!" as marriage equality is now the law of the land! Of course, there will be dissenters and stragglers--like my governor Bobby Jindal, who vows to fight marriage equality until the bitter end, all in the name of trying rev up the base for his anemic presidential run. And just like President Obama's historic victory in '08 did not usher us into a post-racial era, this ruling will not magically wash away all forms of homophobia and transphobia.
But this, to state the obvious, is historic, an irrevocable game changer. Watch President Obama's speech about the ruling below.
