It's a rare thing to know, in the moment, that you're living in a historically important time, but that's what happened when we all woke up this morning to news that the United States Supreme Court voted 5-4 in favor of marriage equality.

More specifically, the highest court in the land ruled that same-sex couples be allowed to marry, regardless of which state they live in. All same-sex marriages are legally binding in all states. Or, as Justice Kennedy put it more eloquently, "The court now holds that same-sex couples may exercise the fundamental right to marry. No longer may this liberty be denied to them." FINALLY!

Now, as a pop culture/entertainment website, we'll be the first to admit we're probably not cut out for deep think-pieces on the historical precedent set today or an essay chronicling the lengthy struggle it took to get here. But being people who believe in progress, equality, and basic human dignity, we are qualified to celebrate, and we'll do so the best way we know how: with a shit-ton of GIFs. Hoooooo-ray!!!

Good job by you, Supreme Court. (Well most of you. Scalia can go f' off.)
