WHEN YOU'RE STRAIGHT ...

You get your name in the paper for getting married 

You get looks of admiration when you hold your partnerís hand 

You get a tax break for being married 

You get to keep your kids no matter how bad a parent you are 

You get to stay in the military if you engage in nonconsensual sex 

If you get AIDS, you're an "innocent victim" 

You have a life 

Standing up for your rights makes you a participatory citizen
 

WHEN YOU'RE GAY ...

You get your name in the paper for committing sodomy 

You get spat upon and jeered at when you hold your partnerís hand 

You can't get married 

You get your kids taken away from you no matter how good a parent you are 

You get kicked out of the military if you engage in consensual sex 

If you get AIDS, you obviously "deserve" it 

You have a "lifestyle" 

Standing up for your rights makes you a "militant homosexual"
