Gay Rights Movement ... Moving Along

It dawned on me today that this is actually a pretty amazing time to live in, witnessing the evolution/progression of gay rights. You can clearly see the tide is turning:

 

I can only imagine this is similar to those who lived through the civil rights movement of the 50s and 60s. The devastating effect of racism and prejudice on our country and how oppositionists were in the majority, only to see their majority slip away as a result of brave individuals and enlightenment. That's what's happening today.

I wonder, will we look back on this time, years from now, celebrating our first gay president, the way we did our first black president? I certainly hope so.

    Everyone should be given the right to live. This thing doesn’t matter that they are gay, lesbian, or what. They are all human and they deserve the freedom and the rights to live well in the society. I wish that everyone can get their rights in this bullish world.
