Look, our country EVOLVES. It doesn't stay stagnant. Decisions are made and processes are created in a manner that you may not agree with. But you are powerless to do anything about them.
The LGBT Community is aware of the processes necessary to get the rights and protections of marriage that we feel, as citizens, we deserve.
We will work within those systems, whether you believe they fall in line with the Constitution or not, in order to obtain our goals.

When abortions were done by criminalís with coat hangers
When Homosexuals were persecuted legally
When minorities did not have equal rights or status
They long for those days, while the rest of us are looking forward to a brighter future.
