not to burst anyone's bubble, but I don't see too much color here... aside from the occasional non-white person, I see maybe... token gestures at "diversity."

Until I see POC/non-White LGBTQI people represented more fully in the gay marriage debate, I'm not impressed.

Also, I think the American Apparel "legalize gay" shirts are stupid because:

1) they support a "faux-liberal" company that gladly objectifies and sexualizes women and youth- yes, it's just a shirt, but as consumer citizens, we vote with our dollars, and those dollars support patriarchal notions of women's and youths' sexuality.

2) "gay" so... Gay people are illegal? Or does it refer to gay marriage? Either way, it is problematic because it is on the same level as referring to gay individuals as "gays," thus assuming that their sexual orientation is the entirety of their identity. You don't refer to a Black person as "a Black"- why would you refer to gay people as "a gay?"

Just saying.
