50 years later, there's also a set of people who didn't notice that there is just no basis in American equal protection law that equates "black" and "gay" unless or until someone pull's one out of their jurisprudential ass, so the entire comparison is as insulting as it is irrelevant. Ask the black vote in California in 2008 if "black" and "gay" are the same -- went 60% plus in favor of prop 8. Az, what say you about the legal prostitute? Does one of the independent contractors at the Bunny Ranch have the right to refuse service on the basis of race? Or if she's just not into girls, shouldn't she still have to serve an interested lesbian?
