When will our day come?

I wonder, and I really do, when will we finally see a true advancement within the gay rights movement? I know we have without a doubt come much further than we ever have before…but when do you think we will finally be able to have equal rights in terms of marriage, adoption, and other important issues? I really feel like our time is coming..but I can’t help but wonder when will the movement end? When will our day come?
In five years? Ten years? Longer?
What are you thoughts?

Peace as always,

In class last year we talked

In class last year we talked about how morals change over time. Eg, in the 1600s, 1700s, even 1800s, slavery was perfectly OK. But now, it isn't. Until recently, women were considered inferior. Now, they aren't. I agree that it's only a matter of time until queer people are seen as human beings who deserve equal rights. But the public perspective might take a long time to reach that point. We really won't get equality until the majority of people approve. And as the civil and women's rights movements show, it can take a long time. The movement isn't brand-new, but I think there's still a long ways to go.

Through time we have seen in

Through time we have seen in many examples just how much society as a whole has changed its opinions. The 1960’s were a time full of anger and violence toward African Americans, and today we have an African American president. But for now we need to continue to educate the general public of the importance of LGBT rights. There will be more times of set backs, but persistence is key to equality.

Haha, yeah, my goal is to be

Haha, yeah, my goal is to be the first female, atheist, queer president...I'm sure there are a few other minorities I can claim membership of, but none come to mind at the moment. =D
