Quote of the Day: Kyell Gold on reverse discrimination

Sen. Dan Swecker (R-WA)
Sen. Dan Swecker (R-WA)

From acclaimed furry novelist Kyell Gold, reacting to Washington State Sen. Dan Swecker’s (R) asshattery about same-sex marriage:

There is a fundamental difference between being discriminated against because of who you are and how you choose to live your life, and being “discriminated against” because of how you believe other people should choose to live their lives. The first case has been shown time and time again to be generally not the way we choose to do things here in America (with some exceptions). The second case is a pathetic whining of people who are perfectly free to live their lives the way they want, but will not be happy unless they can stop other people from being happy. They are co-opting the language of civil rights in an effort to make themselves appear like victims. Don’t buy it, not for a second.

Excellently put. Added to my Memorable Quotes.
