13. There is no poll that says they wouldn't, you are making that up. Fact is any LGBT Democrat can tell

 

you that it was not Republican minds we sought to change, they still have not changed. What we needed was to get enough Democrats to drop the bigotry and support equality. Democrats were the opposition. Republicans still are. Straights on DU get very upset at LGBT disruptive activists 'why don't they interrupt some Republicans' they say. What good is taking action to influence Republicans? No good at all. Who were the people blocking our progress who might listen? Democrats.

On DU, like it or not, many of the Straights who pose as being all about equality and justice opposed LGBT equality a few years ago, some still do. Every day I read nasty comments, many Straights on DU feel that the closet is a privilege and that's really the worst sort of bigotry there is, soft and nasty and self excusing.
