    Cuba gay pride calls for same-sex marriage to become legal

    There seems to be great headway being made in Cuba by LGBT rights activists in promoting equal treatment for the country's long-oppressed sexual minorities. The indefatigable activism of some very brave people, plus a welcome softening and modernising approach from the régime seems to be allowing a lot of progress to happen in a very short time. I wonder whether the great Satan of human rights abusers will pass SSM into nationwide law before the home of the free does.

    How embarrassed would you be if Cuba beat your own home country in its much improved treatment of a significant demographic minority?

    I saw that on BBC24. A few heads were knocked, but they weren't all tear-gassed and herded into jail.

    Not embarrassed at all. Demographically, I'm not sure how significant the gay portion of society is. They are noisy that's for sure.

    Well, discriminated people can be noisy.

    I wouldn't be embarrassed in the least. My country is not in competition with Cuba.

    I'd be shocked if Cuba does anything for their LGBT community.

    What does 'demographic significance' mean exactly? Don't camouflage your words in euphemism and verbosity.

    Well, it would certainly deal a blow to the currency of the 'land of the free' epithet.

    Well, prepare to be shocked. Looks like change is a-coming.

    I will be embarrassed when fawning over communist police states like Cuba starts embarrassing liberals. So, never.
