  •  Minimalism always leads to death (1+ / 0-)

    If it weren't for us maximalists, you minimalists would all be Republicans. If people don't stand up and demand that civil rights be guaranteed for all NOW, then we'd always be left with the handwringers who worry if this is the right time. It is ALWAYS the right time to fight for civil rights.

    Maybe you dislike our stridency, but I am entitled to be married now, after 15 wonderful years with my partner, just as I was 15 years ago. Bigots like my father will NEVER concede that I am entitled to marry, no matter how slowly you go. And why should I wait for my rights? Perhaps if we took away EVERYONE'S right to marry, then you'd understand why queers should not have to continue to wait, hat in hand, hoping some bigoted straights don't kill us before we gets our rights.

    Like matter and anti-matter, Republicans and the truth seem unable to occupy the same space.
