It's So Clear

Originally uploaded by shizzy0 me that gay rights are civil rights. Seriously. People are either equal under the law or they're not.

Are gay people shorter than straight people?

One thing most people don't realize is that marriage as a legal institution between one man and one woman isn't nearly as "old" or "traditional" as people think. I find it especially bizarre that the Mormon Church paid for so much of the no on 8 campaign. It wasn't that long ago that the Mormons were the biggest threat to "conventional" marriage in American culture.

Yes gay people are 6 inches shorter than their heterosexual counterparts, on average. Heh.

That's the thing - marriage is a civil institution as much as a religious one. One religion shouldn't get to impress their definition of it on everyone else, and change law to reflect religious beliefs.

I don't understand people who think that this ISN'T a civil rights issue.

Also, I don't know that many short gays.

That is a pretty powerful way to get that point across. Making signs that point out how banning gay rights is like segregation and using that methos as a campaign--I bet that would open some eyes. The sad thing is, I bet people would buy into it and be happy the signs are there. Anyways, Kudos to that photographer.
