YES, SAME-SEX MARRIAGE IS IMPORTANT. BUT I WANT STRAIGHT ALLIES TO TAKE THIS INTO CONSIDERATION AS WELL.

erinthenerdybumblebee:

• It is still legal in 29 states to fire someone for being gay/bisexual/pansexual/not straight.

• It is still legal in 32 states to fire someone for being trans.

• It is legal in 29 states to evict someone for being queer.

• It is still purposefully difficult for same-sex couples to adopt children.

• Bisexual, pansexual, polysexual, asexual, and demisexual people exist.

• So, you know. It’s not “gay” marriage that was legalized. It’s same-sex marriage that was legalized.

• Queer people (especially minors) are still getting beaten to death and kicked out of their homes.

• Being queer is still illegal in 79 countries.

• Being queer is still punishable by DEATH in 5 countries.

• The fight is far from over.
