the fact that people are like “Coca Cola supports racial equality, I’m not going to be drinking Coca Cola anymore” and “Google supports gay rights I’m not going to use them anymore” like what next “the Earth provides Oxygen to ethnic minorities I’m going to stop breathing in protest”
Why is marriage the number one LGBTQ issue? What about the children that are kicked out of there homes because their parents don’t support them? What about the kids who are bullied so badly that they feel their only option is suicide? What about the hate within the LGBTQ community? What about AIDS and the younger generations lack of understanding of the disease? What about LGBTQ seniors who have no where to go and no one to take care of them in the last years of their lives? What about young LGBTQ people who don’t know gay history? I may be in the minority here but I feel these are all far more important issues than marriage.
