Whatever word lefties use to describe homosexuals doesn't matter so much to me as when they monkey around with concepts that have strong moral content. "Marriage" is one of these, "Human rights" is another. Eleanor Roosevelt included "rights" to physical goods and services in the U.N. Declaration of Universal Human Rights, but this misunderstands the relationship between the material world and the expansiveness of human desire and effort. Among other consequences, the notion of material "rights" would make any poor government, no matter how honest, efficient, and transparent, a criminal government. It's untenable, even aside from the way that material "rights" compel people in some industries to supply the fruits of their labor to others.
