Yes - The Way Forward

I'm voting Yes To Equality on May 22nd 2015.

I look forward to raising my child in an environment that respects equality, where discrimination doesn't ruin so many lives, where doing what makes them happy isn't questioned. I want them to live in a world where they know that everybody is a unique individual but also an equal.

I look forward to my child falling in love for the first time, feeling that overwhelming, glorious sense of nothing else matters in the world except for this other person.

I may not look forward to the first crushing heart break but when that happens, as always, I will be there for my child to help them through.

I look forward to the day I see my child grow up and find someone they want to share the rest of their lives with.

I look forward to the day where I will be bursting with pride watching my child marry that person they have chosen to be their partner for life.

I look forward to the day I see my child become a parent, where I get to be a grandparent, helping my child and their partner along that road of parenthood, just like my parents are helping me.

I look forward to all of this whether my son falls in love with a man or a woman, the sex of that person is irrelevant to me. What is relevant to me is my son's happiness and by voting Yes on May 22nd 2015, I am doing my bit to ensure that the future ahead of him is a fair one, one where equality is recognised.

For me it's simple, Yes is the way forward.
