That's what I seek to rectify. You are quite correct that the American public is poorly informed. Additionally, we do not enjoy the level of societal acceptance enjoyed by our LGB sisters and brothers. Because of that, the American body politic is afraid to stand up for us.
This must change. I am still a full American citizen, and should be afforded all the rights that come with that status. I will not stop fighting until I do...or I draw my final breath on this third rock from the sun.
