I find this very funny for someone who visits a punk forum to say. Civil disobedience or rocking the moral boat...that's how you get attention for things. Of course we want attention. Right now people see gay rights as something that has no effect on them, when they may not realize that their coworkers, classmates, friends etc. etc. etc. are very much effected by this, and by proxy they are effected. As far as using homosexuality like Obama's election, has there been anyone that's done that? The only gay politicians I can think of only came out well after their career got off the ground.
