Just about everywhere you look, you’re bound to find someone who disagrees with you. After all, it’s a free country, and we’re all entitled to our opinions.

Of course, there’s a difference between “opinion” and ignorance or hatred, and the pedantic games played by so many in this country, who would see minorities continuously oppressed, are disheartening to say the least. What’s so scary about equality?

Contrary to what you may have learned in school, the battle for civil rights did not end in the ’60s. Civil rights—the fight for equality for all peoples—is an ongoing and, surely, everlasting uphill climb. Sadly, what should come as basic and inalienable human rights are often misconstrued and twisted to fit a white, Anglo-Saxon, heteronormative narrative that many of us accept without questioning.

One of the biggest topics of debate in our American society today is the rights of the LGBTQ community. Sadly, so much of the country and its leaders are against permitting these people their basic human rights, often using a backwards line of thinking that argues anti-discrimination bills are inherently discriminatory. The same arguments used to condone segregation and anti-miscegenation laws from the past are blindly applied to this ‘new’ scenario, and yet weak as they may be, many politicians use them at the highest levels of our country’s government.

So that makes the irony even sweeter when some of the most vehemently anti-LGBTQ politicians get busted in gay sex scandals.
