    gets to dictate how others use the historical fact of slavery in an analogy (flawed or not; I'm not jumping on one side or another in that argument). In fact, it's incredibly arrogant and puerile to make the choice to be tied to that history and then demand everybody else give identical weight in terms of respect. Recognize that your own statement implies that the choice to tie oneself to the given history is not better, either, and act accordingly.
