94. Everyone has the right to speak their minds on issues that matter to them.

I'm not as familiar with the LGBT fight on the ground in the UK. Regardless, never forget that the fight isn't hopeless. We've come very far and for as much further as we have to go to achieve full equality the train is already hurdling in that direction with little chance of being derailed. We will win the moment everyone knows and cares about someone who is LGBT. In the age of social media, that is coming faster than ever before. Those against us will howl and whine louder and louder as they are increasingly marginalized, but we can't let them get to us.

While writing, it brought this to mind, which I think sums up any progressive fight pretty well...
