Yeah, it's a copy of that.

Individuals have fought for these rights for years and years. Individuals have been brutalized in the process --have lost their jobs, have lost their families and have lost their communities. Individuals have risked personally and professionally so that current and future generations might have the human rights to which we are all due. In my estimation we need a page to thank all of the heroes who have gotten us to this point. A page recognizing those who have risked in local communities , as well as those who have risked and fought on a national scale. This page might have the faces of queer individuals and straight individuals. I do not need to differentiate. I am grateful to all of these individuals. I am not unduly grateful to straight individuals. If straight individuals see this as their fight, as our fight, they will not feel any less appreciated by a page that acknowledges all. To distinguish seems to me to simultaneously diminish the physical, psychological, professional and personal risk that queer individuals have taken for years and position us as needing to be grateful for our human rights. I have never needed special acknowledgment when I have fought for the rights of groups with whom I did not share the same subject position. Let us create a page acknowledging and thanking all, queer and straight, for this should be and has been our fight. Dan's need to continually contextualize the argument for a page thanking straight allies is in part an indication that this does indeed position gays as separate from our straight allies. We are not separate.
