Then we'll fight to KEEP our rights. No doubt the few remaining anti-gays in the GOP will continue to attempt to take away our rights until the day they die, just like the few remaining racists in the GOP continue to attempt to take away the rights of other minorities.

Foxy - You have to help the next group get their rights. Did you know you can't legally marry a sibling?

Don't think I'm hostile to everyone having their "Rights", I'm not! What I don't like is the building of a political party with a bunch of totally non-political people. These people, flushed with success, will have a certain power and will use it to unintentionally destroy this country. I really wish that the Republicans would just recognize
the need for this legislation and not oppose it and not give this "movement" a chance to grow.

If Republicans get to sit in the White House, it will be because we let them use the restroom.

We all go on living our lives exactly as we did before, only the GLBT community will enjoy the equal protection that our constitution guarantees us.

How cool is that??

The answer I would give, coming from a resident of a country where GLBT already have equal legal rights, is that we would push for rights in other countrues and battle homophobia in our own countries. Having legal equality does not end hatred and bigotry.

Being "Trans" myself, I doubt whether it will change much in the TGLB world. I really don't know how "Cool" it is.

Good Point John! As you can see by one poster. Two years in jail, OK one year real life test and one year for recuperation from SRS. Sounds good to me. I'd certainly be "Rehabilitated" when I got out. However, I'm not Gay, soo.....?

You can't even maintain a registered Topix account, let alone post as if you made it beyond the 5th grade. The Gay Rights battle can just step all over your idiotic head, as post away….for years…with numerous names/locations. You are a Topix Troll wonder!!
