WWSP's "The Alternate Boot!"

Human Rights for All Humans!

It's been a hot topic at the Supreme Court this week. And in all the headlines. And for many of us this topic is such a "no-brainer." Of course, Gay People should have all the rights and responsibilities as anyone else. Marriage? Sure.

This got me thinking about how this all came about.  It really was because of a some brave and forward-thinking people who realized that it was time to "come out of the closet," back in the 60's. And it was time to be vocal and "proud" to be the people they really were.

Once the closet door was opened, it became clear that lots and lots of people were gay. And they were not strange, or weird, or really any different than anybody else.  Or maybe some of them were strange and weird and different, just like everyone else. And they deserved respect just like anyone else.

Some trace this all back to the Stonewall Riots.  It was a significant event.  Gay folks standing up for their rights.  These were brave souls who risked life and limb to stand up to the Cops.  And now these many years later these brave souls are vindicated.  And those standing against the Gay movement are really just retrograde, bigoted folks.  People without a leg to stand on, except of course, blind ignorance and intolerance.

Human Rights for Humans! All of us!
