Equality for Humans

Gay marriage?  Why the hell not? After all, according to some, gay people are going straight there anyway (pun intended) so why not share the misery that is (or can be) marriage with everyone else while alive?

Joking aside, here at Kuriositas I try to celebrate and promote equality and diversity, so when I came across this funny but poignant animated short by Macauley C Johnson I just had to share it with you.  It essentially says what I believe – that under the skin and stripped down to the bone, how on earth do you tell people apart?  We are all the same and so therefore if one person is left alone to love whomever he or she wants by peers, state or church then that should go for everyone. No exceptions. It may be a rather simplistic point of view but what I have never been able to get is when people think they have the right to tell others how to love and live – it’s just preposterous and belongs in the past.

Anyway, thanks for this, Macauley!  I really enjoyed it and hope the Kuriositas readership does too.  Macauley is a motion graphics animator and designer living and working in his hometown, LA. He created Equality for Humans at Otis College of Art and Design. You can see more of his work at his website.
