Here's How Martha Stewart Views Same-Sex Weddings

If everyone would mind their own business, live their own lives, and stop telling everyone they come into contact with how they should think, feel, and act, we would all be a whole lot better off. We can apply that sentiment to a countless number of situations in today’s day and age, which has a rather unsightly air of toxicity about it.

Whether we’re talking about political matters or personal choices, there’s a whole lot of yelling going on, but very little in the way of understanding.

Of course, that’s partially because those that scream the loudest get the most attention. In reality, there are a ton of people out there that stay well away from the fray because they simply have no desire to deal with it. The toxicity is really getting to the point that it’s untenable, and it would be lovely to see those that advance it as much as possible take a big step back and examine what they are helping to create.

There’s a real good chance they’ll realize it’s not all that pretty.

There’s plenty of fingers to be pointed as to why things are the way that they are, and they can be pointed at folks on both sides of whatever debate is going on. From afar, watching all of the unsightly arguing can make you feel as if society as a whole hasn’t advanced much at all. In reality, it has advanced a whole lot. Despite that, there remain folks that see things differently, and an inordinate amount of attention is devoted to their views on things.

Perhaps if less time was being devoted to the views of those folks, it would become readily apparent that there are a ton of people out there that are quite evolved in their views of the world. For the people in this category, there’s not a lot of yelling, and hardly anything resembling drama. Instead, there’s just acceptance and a go with the flow attitude that’s quite welcoming.

Martha Stewart falls into that category, and she demonstrated that to perfection with her response to a recent question.

As AOL shares, Stewart was asked about the hubbub that still goes on from time to time in regards to the marriages of same-sex couples. Her simple answer placed things perfectly in perspective, and there was not even the slightest tinge of drama in her remarks.

"I don't differentiate a gay wedding from a straight wedding. I just don't differentiate ... I think it's absolutely a fact that all men are created equal, and so I just treated people like equals my entire life. Equals in every single way, no matter what their proclivity is or what their sexuality is, or their color or their race," she said. "You know, every wedding is special to me."

Stewart’s simple way of looking at things is not a foreign concept, as there’s a whole host of folks across the nation that feel the exact same way. Despite that, all of the attention continues to be paid to those that yell the loudest.

News flash: those folks' minds aren’t going to be changed, so it probably makes sense to leave them be. The rest of the world will evolve just fine without them climbing on board, and energies can be best spent on highlighting the positive progress that has been made in a number of areas. Yes, it really can be that simple - if we all allow it to be, that is.
