    LBGT groups seem more able to move on than other groups which can claim discrimination. Specifically, I am referring to Feminists, and minority civil rights groups who claim to be the victims of discriminatory laws long after those laws have been abolished.

    Now that the gay community is receiving the equal treatment and protections it deserves, does anyone expect to hear activists complaining about unequal pay? Are gay activists going to demand they receive equal representation within every occupation? I actually don't think they will.

    Perhaps the LBGT movement only wants equal treatment. The equal result is something they think they can obtain on their own.

    I have to say, there is nothing I can really criticise regarding the gay rights movement.
