I hate when people compare the two. I don't think that a giving an entire race of people equality in general (including the ability to marry people out of their own race, which is a bigger deal than your own sex, and no, it wasn't legal for them to be unmarried life partners either) is nearly comparable to the gay rights movement. Sure, this is going to be in our grandkid's history books (assuming that any one of you ********* will reproduce), but it isn't nearly going to be as large-scale as the Civil Rights Movement. And by the way, I think that this was a little bit earlier than 1972.

Yes it's not the same scale but they can be compared in many ways. The similarities between women's rights and the civil rights movements aren't invalidated because there are more women than blacks.

True, but it's the same premise:
Equal Rights for All.

Just because it doesn't affect the same amount of people doesn't mean that it is not important. The whole point of the U.S. being a republic is so that it can protect the rights of everyone and not the majority.

True, but you don't understand what I'm saying.

If I kill 1 person as compared to 40, one makes me one of the most famous serial murderers in history and the other makes me news in a small town for a week. Size matters, and when it comes to importance, this isn't compared to the CRM.
