Brian In NYC

It is a good thing Laurie, this really shows just how mainstream the movement has become. Once going mainstream you need a radical element to push and prod or else rigor mortis sets in. Our extremist just have a greater sense of style about it, unlike the crowds who show up for whatever G(fill in your own number) summit. Besides tear gas makes your mascara run!

I only agree with them partly. Just because they don't like that money was taken away from a youth shelter doesn't mean that we should stop fighting for equal marriage rights. The fact is, is that people get benefits out of marriage, if a society allows that then they should allow it for every citizen, and I'm not saying that I support marriage over a youth shelter other rights, I think we should be fighting for them all. Has anyone ever heard of multi-tasking? Simple, people can have several issues that are important to them, but because there are so many issues people can't always give or support all of them. Some people are complacent on issues, and I've never hear of this group until now, where have you been? I also feel that many youth today take things for granted, they may be pissed off because the money was taken away from the youth shelter to help fight for marriage rights, but there are problems with the youth shelters today. Youth shelters should only be temporary not permanent. In San Diego, their is a shelter that is ridden with drugs, and some of the clients have been their for years, and that isn’t' appropriate, and that's why these place lose funding because of issues like that. It's not really that they took the money away to give it for marriage equality fights, it's just that they lost funding because it was a messed up place with drug ridden teens.

I'm all for fighting for many issues, and I don't like the idea of ignoring one right more than others, but people need to speak out, their not, and maybe that is why Marriage Equality fight has taken a precedence over some.

The ones who are tired of not having those marriage rights when everyone else is getting them, are the same people who have been fighting for youth rights for more than 30 years because they to were once part of that youth community.

Have YOU forgotten about stone wall? Many of those people fighting for Marriage Equality have not, and they have been with their partners for more than 30 years waiting for the right to have Marriage Equality before they die, before they get older, time is running out for them, but the youth in the community have their time to play with Marriage Equality, they have the time to wait, but others are tired of waiting, and they want that right now, IT is just as important as other issues.

I'm not sure why the HRC doesn't hand other issues, but like I said some Youth Shelters need to be cleaned up before they can get any funding.

I'm tired of hearing these younger people say that Marriage is not important when we have other civil rights issues, they are ALL important, it's just that some have been pushed into the media as a result of religious right propositions that attack these rights! Should we sit around and ignore those issues, and let them make law after law attacking the community.

We've come a long way in the past 30 years, and I think these youth should at least have some gratitude for what they have this far.

Are they straight on the outside and gay on the inside or gay on the outside and straight on the inside? I do NOT understand queers who embrace the very social values that long "nigrified" them. Will we soon have a society for gays that pass and a society for gays that don't pass?
