Link Love

It's Friday and you know what that means - links, links and more links! 
Let's get the ugliest topic out of the way first.

Unfortunately, children are now being exposed to same-sex marriage in your toy store. This is the last place a parent would expect to be confronted with questions from their children on topics that are too complicated for them to understand. Issues of this nature are being introduced too early and too soon, which is becoming extremely common and unnecessary.
You know, children don't question same-sex marriage unless they have already been taught that it is wrong.  There is nothing complicated about gay marriage, no issues to be explained.  Two same-sex adults fall in love and decide to spend the rest of their lives together.  That's it.  It only becomes "complicated"  and an "issue" when prejudice and hate are brought into the mix.  I feel sorry for the parents who's children come to them with questions about this issue and they are forced to explain what a bigot is.
