12. I just wanted to address one issue here

the notion that support of ENDA isn't about gay youth. One of the biggest helps to gay youth have been GSA's which usually need school personel as sponsors. I had to think long and hard before agreeing to sponsor the GSA at my school because I knew that if I did, I would likely have to come out, and I wasn't sure I was ready to do that, in part because I have no employment protections. I did it anyway but I bet more than a few don't. It should also be noted the apparently not obvious point that gay youth do eventually become gay adults who generally become employed.
