07:39 am - Aggressors?
filkertom linked this article, and while it's preaching to the choir, it seems worth spreading. When I was living (and voting) in Cincinnati a law was passed that made it legal for employers and landlords to discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation. The people promoting the law kept screaming that it was a law to prevent "special rights" for gays. What's special about not being kicked out of your home or denied the right to rent an apartment because someone doesn't approve of your relationship. If you were a minor living in your parents' house, it's acceptable for them to set "standards" of behaviour, no matter how arbitrary. When you're renting space from someone who has no moral authority to dictate your behaviour, it's wrong to grant them the legal authority to do it.

I've not forgotten. The right to live and work without discrimination isn't a special right, it's a human right. The right to marry without discrimination isn't a special right, it's a federal right. (I was going to say an American right, but in any society that recognizes marriage, it should be your right to be able to marry another consenting adult.)

So after forcing you to sit through that rant (even though I'm mostly preaching to the choir here), the article is here.
