Lessons From New York

Posted on the 26 June 2011 by Mikeb302000

Lessons From New YorkSeveral days ago, NY State became the sixth state in the country to legalize same-sex marriage.  While other states have legalized SSM, the fact NY has done so represents a tipping point.  It won't be long before other states follow suit--with the possible exception of the usual southern states.
Civil rights for gays is long overdue and legalization of SSM is just an important milestone on the journey to equal rights.
Gunloons often like to equate their gunloonery to a civil rights struggle.  It's a pretty offensive argument since gunloons are almost exclusively fat, white males who have never been turned down for a job, excluded from educational opportunities, denied access to the legal system or other public institutions, etc. solely on the basis of their race, religion, gender or sexual orientation.
Think about it.  Blacks were killed for suggesting they be allowed to vote.  Gays have lost jobs solely because they are gay.  Gunloons believe they are oppressed because they can't own a fully-automatic firearm or have to wait more than 30 minutes for a gun purchase.
Kind of puts things in perspective.  A few years ago, 41 states allowed an employer to fire someone for no other reason than being gay.  Almost 50 years ago, blacks were denied access to retail stores, schools, jobs because of being black.  Today, fat white males have the gall to pretend theirs is a civil rights struggle.  Shame.
