On gay rights

TCF has a thoughtful post about the future of gay rights here and elsewhere:

. . . It's not unreasonable to believe that it could be another fifty years before gays and lesbians are afforded the same rights as heteros. And then have wait for a court brave enough to buck the conservative social bigotry with a Brown vs. Board of Education style ruling.

It's difficult to be patient and wait for society to come to grips with its bigotry. Losing battle after battle in an effort to gain equality is a frustrating and exasperating exercise.

Inroads are being made outside of the United States.
