From "homosexuality is a 'poor trait'" to gays and lesbian as part of the American family portrait. As the Mouse House grows and changes, so do America's hearts and minds. We may bitch and moan about that to which we are denied, but we should also take a moment to admit: It's a pretty cool time to be alive!

Here's just hoping Cyn wasn't on hand to film Sex and the City 2: Samantha Gets It On With 6 of the 7 Dwarfs.
