As eventful as the month of may was, nothing caused more controversy than President Barack Obama declaring himself in favor of gay marriage. Many believe he did so in order to gain popularity among members of the gay community, others believe it was just a publicity stunt. Whatever the reason, I’m glad this country has a president who acknowledges people’s right to love whoever they want.
Another important- and possibly overlooked- event that took place in May was the death of Vidal Sassoon. Many may wonder why is this man so important? Well he changed the lives of girls everywhere by inventing the handheld blow dryer, saving women time and money while allowing them to have salon looking hair. Men may roll their eyes at the thought of him being so important, but in reality they benefited just as much as women from Sassoon’s creation.
Among other big news, Facebook went public. What sounded like a good idea was actually a disaster for the stock market and left many investors either disappointed or enraged over their losses. However not everything has been bad for Mark Zuckerberg this May, since he married his longtime girlfriend Priscilla Chen in a small ceremony in their house in California. Congratulations Priscilla, you are officially the queen of Silicon Valley.
