    No employment, no education, no social interaction with the public, in favor of locking us up in institutions without choice, removal of our sexual reproductive capabilities.

    The first two are not rights and the rest I have no idea what that they have to do with anything.

    Wow...

    You would never be in my circle of friends with such a selfish attitude.

    When you are completely shoved off of an equal footing from the rest of the population simply because of who you are, and it impacts every facet of your life, you can bet your bum we want to force it down their throats to treat us like human beings.

    They win the election, have the overwhelming support, make a better argument.

    Again, you're exaggerating. That's not what's said. What's said is, don't discriminate or you'll be fined. Say within the reality of it.

    Ok, thanks for the heads up. Btw, I agree with you on the last few on your list, but they don't appear to have anything to do with this law.

    It can only work that way when all things are equal. And all things can never really be equal. Again, review history. The reality is very different than the view you present.
