Thanks Nova, I'm glad you posted that.
I hope you're right, and I hope it happens that way. The obvious hurdle with regard to the protected class status is the political furor clouding the very issue of gay persons (LBGTQ persons) as a class with distinct, immutable characteristics (hence the intensity of the "ex-gay" campaigns.)
Never linger too long with the ignorant,
throw stones at their talk.
Walk only with the lovers,
the mirror of the soul gets rusty when
dipped in muddy water.
