Patriot: SA didn't say being black was being the same as one's sexual orientation. No one who supports equality says that. Being a woman isn't the same as being Jewish. However, the common thread through all these groups, is a legacy of injustice and civil rights. Gay citizens are already law abiding, tax paying and shouldering the equal responsibilities. There are guaranteed equal rights and protections that go with that. One's heterosexuality, doesn't give you any more moral (or other superiority), than white skin does. See?
