commented on Seahawks Protest Made Toothless By Need For Consensus
It is such a relief to have solved the whole "homophobia" problem. I don't miss the endless second-guessing of every step and action. Remember how angry we were that Obama was taking so long to get our goals accomplished?
Looking back though it seems the bigger the "controversial LGBT event that increased awareness of the issues" the more likely it was something simple like a famous person coming out as gay. We found success in a lot of small steps and through building allies. It was straight people who voted in LGBT marriage in this state.
A united professional football team doing something together will have more impact than an individual player. Even if the individual is making a protest that meets the high standard set by activists. As frustrating as it is, slow and gentle is better for changing attitudes.
