    The marriage equality fight is far from being over.

    Besides, people will continue to fight for what is right. Even fights that are "over" - like abortion or collective bargaining rights - are being fought daily.

    •  No they will not. The gay rights movement (0+ / 0-)

      right now is only together because the issue is seen as tying all gays together. Housing and employment discrimination for middle class and upper income gays is not a crucial issue. It is a mistake to think the gay rights movement is truly a monolith for all gay rights.

      •  monolith? (0+ / 0-)

        who said anything about monoliths?

        isn't there one floating around Jupiter?

        rich gays (Ken Mehlman, et al) seem to be perfectly happy selling out lesser gays in order to keep the richies in riches. that some rich gays have decided they want to be able to marry after all is kind of interesting. I wasn't so much being optimistic as figuring the struggle is eternal - a luta continua! we'll never completely win, there will always be battles to be fought. the AIDS crisis isn't really over, etc.
