So Ireland has done something laudable: most Irish people in Ireland are cool with the gays getting married.
One of the only things all the major Irish political parties agreed on from the first days of the Saorstat to the Fianna Fail triumph in 1932, was that Ireland needed a strong censorship regime: certain things could not, by law, be said, lest the Indomitable Irishry face domination.
You shouldn't allowed to print anything about "race suicide." That is, contraception.
And you also could not publish anything to do with homosexuality.
To help this sink in: in the 1920s -30s the major political parties had as their major point of convergence a mutual desire to shoot each other dead. But they agreed that no Irish person should ever say anything about how maybe homosexuality was no big deal.
Hatred of homosexuality has been baked into dominant ideas of "authentic" Irishness for generations. This vote is seismic.
(Yes, I am using the term "political parties" extremely loosely. Fuck off.)
