Exactly. And equal treatment under the law does not mean letting one group vote on the rights of another group.

You're not being "oppressed" when another group gains rights that you've always had.... That is called privilege.
"This is what anyone who claims 'reverse racism' or 'reverse discrimination' of any kind will understand once they recognize and educate themselves about their own privilege. Readings for Diversity and Social Justice is a phenomenal book that explains the multiple dimensions of oppression, and the companion text, Teachings for Diversity and Social Justice, explains the theoretical framework of anti-oppressive social justice education."

"Every single American: Gay, Straight, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender; every single American deserves to be treated equally in the eyes of the law and in the eyes of our society. It's a pretty simple proposition." - Barack Obama #equality Obama 2012.
Obama has endorsed "marriage equality" (allowing individuals of the same sex to marry and have the same rights as homosexual couples). It really hit home when my own state decided I was less than human. Let's stop that feeling in the next 4 years.
Every single american deserves to be treated EQUALLY in the eyes of the law and in the eyes of our society. Simple.

I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours. -Stephen Roberts
This is so true. I don't believe in Zeus, Allah, the Christian god, the Norse gods, the Roman gods, the Egyptian gods, the Greek gods - so why get so upset when I don't believe in yours? What makes the Christian god right but Osiris wrong? He was around before the Christian god. I don't believe in any omnipotent being.
I contend that we are both athiests, I just believe in one fewer god than you do.
We're all atheists- I just believe in one fewer god than you do.

If by a 'Liberal' they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind.. someone who cares about the welfare of the people... someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions.. then I'm proud to say I'm a Liberal. - President John F. Kennedy. Democrat.
The greatest JFK quote for liberals. He said it so long ago, but today it's more relevant than ever
"If by a 'Liberal' they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people--their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties--someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a 'Liberal,' then I'm proud to say I'm a 'Liberal.'" -John F. Kennedy
