    You're an old lady who hasn't lived any of these things. I doubt you'd get it even with the aid of PowerPoint.
    Very well said. ALL of it, lol. You'll note there was nothing of substance in either post, just little 'drive bys'.

    I like the fact that the protesters were not abused and were allowed to protest.

    If the Castro regime is gradually loosening its hold, as seems the intent here, I would encourage it in the little time it has left.

    No support for a position, just sniping. A long and consistent 'history'.

    What about all the people that agree with him that are not gay? And have not experienced it 'personally?' The thread has many, and so do the other threads on SSM. Loads.

    I am sure you hit the nail on the head.

    Not only on public perception and reputation, but cops simply won't want to police these neighborhoods anymore.

    I dont think that's true. It's to their benefit in general to have more open relations with us, period.

    Sure, but did common Cubans participate?

    Did you expect them to? Esp. at first? How many men marched with the suffergettes in the US?

    The group is demanding their 'rights', bringing visibility where none existed before (I dont think). It has to start somewhere. With the govt not arresting or beating people and allowing it to progress..that sends a message to all Cubans. (And the Castro regime knows that, IMO)
