Our American Society’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (“LGBT”) Community must decide what its priorities are.
What is most important ?
Is it an urgent need to have LGBT COMBAT SOLDIERS on the FRONT LINES in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan ?
Is it to have equal access to RESTROOMS of choice ?
Is it to have America’s FIRST LGBT PRESIDENT elected ?
Is it to have LIBERTY, FREEDOM and EQUAL OPPORTUNITY, regardless of Gender and/or Sexual Orientation ?
Regarding LGBT COMBAT SOLDIERS on the FRONT LINES in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan, does anyone really want that ? Are members of the LGBT Community so determined to have full integration of America’s Armed Forces, that they will seek out Front-Line Combat positions ? Is full integration of America’s Armed Forces really such a good idea, or will there be at least the potential that we would lose a degree of Battle-hardened, Combat-readiness ?
Regarding equal access to RESTROOMS of Choice, do new laws and regulations really help anyone ? Perhaps we should just leave things the way they are, and let the individuals involved sort it all out.
Regarding America’s FIRST LGBT PRESIDENT, will that be achieved if Hillary Clinton is elected ?
Regarding LIBERTY, FREEDOM and EQUAL OPPORTUNITY, regardless of Gender and/or Sexual Orientation, isn’t that the most important thing, for the LGBT Community, as well as everyone else ?
And perhaps we should all apply a “RULE OF REASON,” which is a time-honored LEGAL TERM referring to a well-thought out decision, using COMMON SENSE, avoiding extremes, and coming up with the BEST SOLUTION.
Let’s not be so driven by specific MILESTONES, as by COMMON SENSE.
If Discrimination is alleged, capable attorneys can argue the issues in a Court of Law.
After all, our Adversarial Judicial System works best when opponents hire experienced counsel, who argue the different sides of the issue, to be ultimately decided by either a WISE COURT, or a JURY of PEERS, or both.
