  •  gay rights is our battle (7+ / 0-)

    It's about human freedom. We all win with LGBT equal rights. Even if I am straight, I feel like this is my fight, too, although I recognize I have less to risk or lose.

    •  In a very real way, you have just as much to risk (1+ / 0-)

      or lose.  Know why?  Because we recognise each other as human beings in these battles!  

      We are invested, we do risk, and we can lose.  Therefore, we battle on--for each other and with each other as allies.

      I think that's the heart of the matter.  We see ourselves as "we" rather than as the motley group we once were.  


      We cannot call ourselves a civilised society if we refuse to protect the weakest among us.

      •  yes, I agree (0+ / 0-)

        it's just that I have to recognize that some people are really putting themselves on the line, and sometimes even in danger. I want to respect and acknowledge that.
