We’ve Got The Power

An anti-gay group in Utah is filing an amicus brief with the Supreme Court in defense of the state’s ban on same-sex marriage by using the rather interesting argument that gays are too politically powerful to deserve to be protected by anti-discrimination laws.


The brief goes on at great length to cite President Obama’a gay pride proclamations, his employment executive order, the major corporations that back LGBT rights, the openly gay US delegation to the Sochi Olympics, the repeal of DADT, the passage of the Hate Crimes Act, and other examples of LGBT triumphs. In other words, we’ve already too damn successful to possibly claim discrimination.

So therefore it’s okay to keep discriminating against us.
