Commentary from the HRC

This commentary by Human Rights Campaign president Joe Solmonese, steers an almost libertarian course, asking for "the same legal protections and rights offered to every other American — no more, and no less." This is a refreshing break from the past where the HRC has demanded "special rights" for gays and lesbians (such as hate crime laws). Maybe they are realizing that the previous approach was generating a backlash, not to mention that "special rights" are, well, unequal.
