    I doubt the more American men are becoming gay... How could the vote numbers go up so quickly ?

    Because more non-gay people are realizing that gay people should have equal rights?

    I think with the majority of American's supporting gay marriage, that's one reason Romney wasn't elected; he's against it.
    That mentality is not the future, and I'm proud of America for not letting someone like that into office.

    More people aren't gay, but I think more people admit to being gay, since more people are accepting of it. We're heading in the right direction.

    I think more people are admitting it. Also, more people realize that by not recognizing a gay couple as being married does not prevent them from being gay. Hard to believe it has taken this long. I have a first cousin who is gay and his parents have had a really hard time with it. I cannot say I have ever had a chance to tell them this but my feeling is that he cannot be straight any easier than I or any other straight person can be gay. It still gross's me out out to see two guys kiss, but it grossed me out to see my parents kiss when I was a little kid too. LOL

    How about this perhaps. Maybe more Americans are realizing that it's not cool to be a bigoted jackass.

    and are not a threat.

    More or less. The majority, and particularly, the younger generations are voting with their consciences, they can see through the hypocrisy/bs, and they are not afraid to what is right.
