105. Great, another grand gesture that really does not mean shit.
Edited on Fri Apr-16-10 07:14 AM by Raster
Because we gays just love those grand gestures. :sarcasm: It's still "separate but equal," which as we all know, is NOT EQUAL. It's just a small bone to throw to the LGBT citizens. It sounds good, but in reality, how enforceable is it? Does it really address the law?

And all you nice straight folks out there just giddy over this "token acknowledgment" of us Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals and Transgendered persons as full citizens with full rights: what if the shoe were on the other foot?

"This memorandum is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person."
