I’m working on an article about how young adults are increasingly likely to call themselves pro-life, and increasingly likely to support gay marriage. There are a lot of narratives you could tell about how someone comes to hold either or both of these beliefs; I want to get some sense of which narratives people tell themselves. [ETA: Whoa, that phrasing is awful! "Which narratives people tell themselves" = how people explain, in their own words, how they came to hold their beliefs.]
So! If you are pro-life, pro-gay-marriage, and under 25, please email me at email@example.com . If you know other people who fit the bill, please give them my information! And if you’re on any mailing lists which might truffle up some responses, I would be thrilled if you’d repost this request.
Being over 25 and having gotten considerably more skeptical of gay marriage since I first started writing about it, I am unable to help directly, but I suppose some of you all can oblige? I think the piece Eve is working on may be for TAC, actually.
P.S. Eve’s “Romoeroticism” essay that was published at Inside Catholic the other week is really excellent, and I can’t believe I haven’t linked to it yet! It might help to shed some more light on the idea that was at the core of my unpublished Culture11 essay.
P.P.S. Will Wilson asks marriage traditionalists some good questions, and the correct answers are “Yes” to “B” and “C”, and “Not so much” to “A”.
