You cannot counterfeit a right. This isn't about that at all.
This is about conformity. You could argue that we should be a more conformist society in the 1950s model. People who stray out of the norm are 'righteously' discriminated against by their peers and punished by their own decision to not being productive upstanding citizens.
Naturally, we can't change our skin color, so that area of discrimination was eliminated with time. But gays can ignore their unproductive desires, much like the rest of us chose not to drink alcohol or smoke cigarettes or play video games all day.
I am however, of the opinion that we should let adults be adults. If there is a consequence, let them suffer it. They are adults, not children.
