mauvepink BS: Don't Ask/Don't Tell--Toast! (47) RE: BS: Don't Ask/Don't Tell--Toast! 19 Dec 10

The passing of this bill is unlikely to make any difference to any, other than a few triumphalist "liberals", while the results of the greatest robbery ever perpetrated, is sure to bring hardship and even death to many of our poorest and infirm comrades.


Please try to show a bit of perspective!

Many gay people have died, both at the hands of bigots and at their own hand, in past times. This bill is but one in a string of events that see to it that being gay is no longer seen as a crime. It is important to those it effects. Just as it is important that the right political moves are made to protect people's incomes and taxes to see to it that people no longer have to die in poverty. The two things are very different but the true perspective is one of fair treatment to all. Neither should be seen as triumphant to the other.

We are all afected by global and national economics. We all need to be able to live and not be in poverty. Anything that helps that has to be good. But there is more to life than just money, as I have already said, and to decry someone their piece of freedom in comparison to something else unrelated seems to me to be out of perspective itself.

I am singling out no-one here. Many believe what has been written to be the case but it is not comparing like with like. These threads are full of financial comments and topics: this one is about gay people finally being treated fair by their country.
