If You’re Going To Oppose LGBT Rights, Then Be Honest About What You’re Really In Favour Of.

A friend shared this on Facebook yesterday and I felt that it was important to share it with you all. In the words of The Athena Tree:

When discussing LGBT rights, it’s important to remember that there is more to that than just marriage equality. There are many rights that the LGBT community are excluded from, things like discrimination protection in employment, rights of inheritance, parental rights, protection in schools. In a country where an entire segment of the population is treated as if they do not have the same rights as others, it creates an environment that allows for hate crimes to increase.

Everything is connected, stories like those pictured will not stop happening until there is acceptance, equality and respect as the standard in our society.

I’ll let the picture speak for itself now.
