President Obama’s Inclusive Inaugural Address Angers Some

130121062821-n-obama-inauguration-speech-99-secs-2013-00011222-video-15“… from Seneca Falls to Selma to Stonewall ..” and with that one word, Stonewall, President Obama brought to the forefront and to the American people the struggle for Equality which continues on today for LGBTs.

And with these words, “The journey to equality 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.’’ cements Obama’s evolving inclusion of LGBTs which started with the repeal of DADT.

But of course there are those who are none too happy with POTUS.

They have the same civil rights as anyone else; they have the right to live as they wish and love whom they choose. What they don’t have is the right to redefine marriage for all of society. In fact, six federal courts have rejected the idea that there is a constitutional right to same-sex marriage, including the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit and the U.S. Supreme Court in a summary decision in 1972. Furthermore, that vast majority of states have codified the commonsense view held for thousands of years that marriage is the union of a man and a woman. The President is profoundly wrong to imply that those who have acted to protect marriage have denied anyone’s rights by doing so.”

But there are those too within the LGBT community who are not satisfied with Obama’s remarks. Such as the man who would be woman, Autumn Sandeen who takes any and every opportunity to show why the T holds back the rest of LG & B and why we need to shake the T off of our backs.
