Is the battle for gay rights a civil rights battle?

From Obama's inaugural speech.

"We, the people, declare today that the most evident of truths that all of us are created equal is the star that guides us still; just as it guided our forebears through Seneca Falls, and Selma, and Stonewall ... Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well."

Today Obama placed an original place for the battle for gay civil rights, Stonewall along side the same original battleground's for women's rights(Seneca Falls) and African-American rights(Selma).

So the poll question is............

Is the battle for gay rights a civil rights battle?

personally I don't think you need to put gays/lezbos in a certain category.

same goes w/ blacks or any other minority.

They deserve the same rights as any other American.

Are you suggesting that allowing gays to get married will cause us to become extinct? That's a new one. Bravo sir, bravo.

Usually as a solution to sexual boredom.

Just wondering if those that support gays also support transgenders?

What about hermaphrodites?

If there is a line that you will actually draw, where is it?

Civil rights and something that happens behind closed doors are not the same thing.

Just not sure why anyone would oppose someone with a birth defect.

It has nothing to do with opposing anything. I don't oppose gays or anything happening behind close doors, I don't think it should be of concern to the govt.
I do oppose special legislation benefiting any new groups, whatever they may be, for something that shouldn't be of the govt concern.
