If this is the "most challenging human rights issue" for Ms Rice, I'd like to introduce her to dysfunctional, tortuous prisons in more than 140 countries, dysfunctional justice systems in those same countries, where the poor are trod upon as if they were feudal chattel.

Yes, protecting gay/lesbian/transgender persons is an important thing, but to put it at the top of a heap that includes total abuse of all persons who are not rich, is to ignore reality.
