    I've heard that one before.

    Do you support their right to work free of fear of being fired for their sexual orientation?

    Do you support their right to marry the person of their choosing and have that marriage recognized by law?

    Do you support their right to serve in the military without fear of being discharged for their sexual orientation?

    Let's judge you by your actions, as you insist we do. If the answer to any of those questions is no, you've just proven my point. You can be polite as as a Victorian beauty queen to your gay friends, but if you don't support their first-class citizenship, that's still hate, and it still contributes to the feelings of worthlessness in LGBT kids that drives them to suicide.

    When are you going to understand that being normal is not necessarily a virtue? It rather denotes a lack of courage. - Practical Magic
