I must say, Knob, you're certainly living up to your handle.You sound a lot like one of those reverse racists. You know, the people who go through great pains prove they aren't racist, but still make it blatantly obvious they're defining a person by his/her ethnicity alone.There's nothing self-righteous about this cause. There's no asking for special treatment in this cause. What it is about is assuring lesbians, gays, bisexuals, and transgendered persons receive the same respect as any other federally recognized group.Why is that so hard to understand? Ever see those patriotic comic books or Warner Bros. cartoons from the WWII era? The kind of racist antics found in them display the same kind of disrespectful treatment in society and misrepresentation in the media LBGT persons face now. Those WWII cartoons and comics are considered grossly inappropriate now. . .And hopefully one day in the future, the treatment of LGBT persons now will no longer remain acceptable by the majority of society.(I would like to make clear, for historical purposes I don't believe those WWII works should have been essentially removed from public memory/history as they have been. I don't care how ugly a society's history can be; people can not learn from it if it is hidden.)
