The gay rights movement has been astonishingly successful. During the past 30 years, it has changed the law, marriage, the military, churches, adoption agencies, corporations and the workplace, all forms of media, and education from kindergarten on up. Two lesbians sued a photographer for turning down work at a gay wedding. They may have labeled him hateful. I am weary of these labels. They are intended to silence opponents.
Who is being invasive here? Who is demanding constant change and not leaving us alone? I recognize that gays make contributions, but I feel besieged by this movement. It’s not a healthy lifestyle and I don’t know why the majority is asked to alter so much for a minority that claims that it cannot change.
All that McDonnell and Cuccinelli are trying to do is uphold the societal norms that many of us prefer.
