I hate how people use the word “legal” and “illegal” in reference to gay marriage and marriage equality in the states, especially in wake Ugandas “Kill The Gays” bill.  There are places, where being gay is actually illegal and results in jail time or death, and the states just don’t have that problem.  In the states, GBLT persons are certainly second class citizens, and I’d be lying if I said that hate crimes against persons on the basis of sexuality and gender don’t happen, however, our government does no jail or kill people because they are among the glbt community. Our government just fails to recognize that these persons are entitled to equal rights, which is a pretty far cry from “illegal,” at least in my opinion.
