I clearly remember the day of the SCOTUS decision to legalize gay marriage. It was not long ago at all - June 26, 2015 - a 5-4 decision. One singular vote by a Supreme Court Justice.
Consider that singular vote as we face the Trump agenda. Reflect on the juvenile campaign of 2016, the un-investigated tsunami of Fake News spread across billions and billions of views by Facebook, and the undeniable material influence of foreign state sponsored actors on both of the above tragedies.
Only a majority of one enabled these civil rights for millions within our communities.
The Supreme Court decision is true progress for our nation. This decision was proceeded by countless actions within the LGBTQ community to stand up and be heard. Finally, the legal and moral equality deserved is the law of the land.
Whenever I meet someone who opposes the decision, I ask two simple questions for discussion:
1.) Have you ever met and spent time with a gay or lesbian couple or have you ever had a real face to face conversation with a transgender?
The answer is almost always no. So silly and sad, our prejudices and fears based in nothing more than ignorance.
2.) When in our human history has it ever been bad to pursue and grant additional civil rights to citizens?
I can think of no such case. Sadly in this backwards yearning day and age, I have seen comments posted on Yabberz, to the effect that some of these decisions were bad and in fact citizens need less rights not more. Somehow in this twisted logic a reduction in rights is justified as creating more Freedom and Liberty. The arguments are sometimes rooted in religion, and sometimes rooted in pure evil. They are wrong, but they are also a stark reminder that the fight must continue.
It is with great pride that I introduce the new LGBTQ section for discussion. A section dedicated to all that the LGBTQ community and its supporters do to promote progress, understanding, creativity, and energy -- brightening our world.
I'd love to meet the owners of these beautiful homes and welcome them to join Yabberz:
