Yeah, don't boycott the Salvation Army. It's not like there are other organizations which do good work and help the poor and needy, and have the benefit of not being bigoted organizations that dehumanize entire groups of people for insane religious reasons. If only the world had other charitable organizations!
But it does not.

More reasons to go for gay marriage LESS STRUGGLE!Originally Posted by Advocate.com
Seeing that 64% of transgendered people live in poverty really scared me. Now I really am afraid I will be able to get a job at all.
People will take this info and turn it into "it doesn't pay to be gay" when really life's being made harder for lgbtq people. It isint asking for special treatment when other committed couples are automatically given things like tax breaks its asking for equal rights. I feel I had to say that because there are still people who don't understand that.
Imagine how many people would be better off financially and be in better health if gays and lesbians were allowed to marry their same sex partners?
I saw on the news that gay men in states with gay marriage were actually healthier
Give LGBTQ equal opportunity, and women equal wages and this wouldn't even be a problem.
Though, according to my girlfriend's experience working in designer clothes/make-up retail, those types of stores are very partial to gay men when hiring. ._.
There is imo a high density of gay men in fashion and make up. I would try to say perhaps its something genetic inherited by all gay men to want to go into such industrys but I hate that it's a continued stereotype that all gay men are fashionable or some kind of fashion idiot savants because we aren't. Yes you see allot of gay men in that type of store but I think its to get women shoppers to buy more because dispite just knowing they like men any woman loves to hear a man tell her she looks great in those shoes or that is her color etc. Other ones are if he's an artist or theater actor he's gay. Not true!
Though the Performing Arts section of my college (where I love to hang out) seems to be where all the gay guys are. Seriously, in the last 3 months I've hung out there I've seen more gay guys in college than the 2 years before.
EDIT: Mind you the majority of male PA students at my college tend to be (a) "god's gift to women" or (b) gay
EDIT2: What I'm saying is there's probably some truth to the actor thing
