A Pew study reveals that Generation Y is more liberal than any other age group — including Gen X when they were our age. Nearly 60 percent of 18- to 24-year-olds choose Democratic candidates over Republicans. This reverses a trend from the '80s and '90s of younger voters being more likely to vote conservative.

Why is this? Aside from the fact that a Republican commander-in-chief has sent more than 3,000 of us to our bloody deaths, Gen Y is far more open to gay marriage than older generations. Our friends don't feel the need to hide their sexuality, unlike many right-wing politicians and religious leaders. As the GOP continues to bash our buddies as harbingers of the apocalypse, their numbers will continue to shrink faster than my anatomy in a room full of naked guys (bronzed… jacked… dripping with sweat…), because I am so totally 93 percent not gay. (But seriously, who wouldn't go for Shatner? Especially today?)
