Gay rights gains piling up; battles still ahead

NEW YORK (AP) — In Maine, a congressman running for governor came out as gay. In Hawaii, lawmakers girded for a vote to legalize same-sex marriage. And in the U.S. Senate, seven Republicans joined the Democrats in a landmark vote to ban workplace discrimination against gay, bisexual and transgender Americans. From one end of the country to the other, the overlapping developments on a single day underscored what a historic year 2013 has been for the U.S. gay-rights movement – “the gayest year in gay history,” according to Fred Sainz of the Human Rights Campaign, the movement’s largest advocacy group

Bully for them. How about "equal" rights for masturbators. There's a lot of closet auto-erotic fans out there who need to go public on the theory that hiding anything is a bad thing and leads to disease, hair loss, muscle atrophy, and general physical decline.

There could be a "Masturbators on Main Street" parade staged yearly where all the Hand Men and Women would strut their stuff. Something for the City Fathers to consider.
