It sounds like you're a libertarian then. Libertarians didn't used to be automatically linked with conservatives.<quoted text>
Choice or not, we allow straight people rights and privileges that gay people do not get. Equality is not treating people differently just because of who or what they are, and that's what us activists are pushing for, simple equality.
Oh, and I'm conservative, I just believe in less government.
Activism is fine, but provoking riots isn't. At some point, revolution may be necessary, but no revolution is likely to succeed without consensus. No one groups is disposable over another group.
The essential element that is lacking here is that advocates for change must accept that they are up against a "majority" whose reason for allying may be over, but the comforts of the status-quo remain. Take away the comforts of the status-quo from one group for no other reason than to indulge the whims of another group and you clearly aren't respecting the sacrifices being made by all.
Gays have equal rights under the law, but enforcement is probably lacking. They are NOT alone in that inequity so the arrogance of sickofit's post claiming "Only thing left to do is get same sex people equal rights" deserves to be shut down while denying the metaphorical physical contact that is the tool of irresponsible liberal politics.
It's not my nature to bash, but I'll gladly call out rhetoric for what it is. Perhaps when people rely on it less, there will be less fear and less of a tendency for things to get prejudicially out of control. Until the witch hunts end, expect the worst in all human nature.
