How Gays and Women Get In Their Own Way

Progressives have to make laws to force everyone to conform to THEIR "ideals." Boy Scouts ban gay scout leaders? They condemn the Boy Scouts instead of FORMING THEIR OWN group. Women hit the glass ceiling? Form your own companies (or religion). Leave "what is" alone. I don't want anyone legislating dictates to my emotions. I don't want to be forced to subsidize, support, endorse or embrace something that I don't approve of or that I don't care one way or the other about. Too many laws, too many rules forcing me to do things (or pay for them) and I start to get really angry, esp. when my party sits idly by.

Slight correction: Not conforming to their ideals - conforming to their intolerance of other's convictions and principles.

When a Liberal demands tolerance from you, they're attempting to force you to surrender your conviction while they maintain theirs.

Gays can be leaders. Women can be leaders. Without realizing it, I think gays and women inadvertently work against their own objective of equality when they force private organizations to support gay and female leaders.

As I wrote here, gays and women are already equal before the Constitution, which defines us by our humanity, not by our sexuality, and is silent on most personal matters like marriage. Furthermore, the more the federal government defines our rights, the less free, equal and human we all become.

Here is what generally happens when minority groups confuse social acceptance with equality...
