The liberals are abuzz with talk of a "gay rights" bill in the legislature. And here I was thinking that people who choose to be gay had the same God-given rights as you and I. The same right to free speech, free excercise of religion, the right to bear arms and so forth.
So I guess what they mean is "special" rights. They want something different than what you or I have. Fine, but here's the rule: prove that you are gay.
That's the real catch here. It's not provable. (or disprovable *cough* John Edwards) At least with the other "special rights" folks you can say with scientific certainty that yes, this person is black, hispanic, etc.
And what about those folks who are married for twenty years to a member of the opposite sex and then "discover" (not a mid-life crisis, no sir) that they are gay? Would these new "rights" be conferred on them at the age of 45? Rights that were unavailable to them before?
But the important thing that we must remember, this is about not stigmatizing freaks. SEE "transgender"
