“If you marry a man it’s going to be so cool.”

It’s pretty easy to look at the state of the modern world and see nothing but bleak desolation and the gradual, inevitable decline of a once (or perhaps never?) noble species … woah sorry lost my train of thought there out of sheer gloominess … I guess what we’re trying to say is that the video you’re about to see is a refreshing lighthouse of  heartwarm-ary in the otherwise stormy sea of coldheartedness that we call the 21st century.

The video shows YouTuber OliverVlogss coming out to his five year old brother. Seeing as five is a magical age where people are too young to know about pointless hatred yet, his brother is delighted for him. “If you marry a man it’s going to be so cool”, he beams.

As a pleasant coincidence, this month marks the 50th year anniversary of the Sexual Offences Act 1967, the law that decriminalised homosexuality in England and Wales. Scotland and Northern Ireland followed suit in 1980 and 1982 respectively. These laws were later opened up and modernised, but they were ground-breaking for the time.
