Hillary Clinton declared in her historic speech on the world stage: “Gay rights are Human rights.”

In this speech, Hillary outlines what she did for LGBTQ people around the world. Her implementations as Secretary of State has made it safer to be LGBTQ in a world of so much hate.

Hillary has also worked with the Human Rights Campaign on hate crime laws and HIV/AIDS as New York Senator. Hillary was the first First Lady to march in a gay pride parade.

Curious why Hillary was asked to speak at the Human Rights Campaign and not Bernie? Watch her speech:

Hillary has known the Human Rights Campaign President since her days as First Lady of Arkansas. Hillary has been building coalitions for decades.

As New York Senator, Hillary fought for stronger hate crime laws and anti-discrimination laws. As Secretary of State, Hillary enacted lifesaving policies and programs that saved LGBTQ people around the globe.

Hillary Clinton: ‘Marriage Is Always Between a Man and a Woman’

🎥 Hillary Clinton on Gay Marriage 2004 - YouTube

MATTHEWS: The “New York Times” recently began posting the celebrations of gay unions. Not just straight people getting married, but gay people who want to announce their unions. Do you think New York State should recognize gay marriage?

CLINTON: No.

“I believe marriage is not just a bond but a sacred bond between a man and a woman. I have had occasion in my life to defend marriage, to stand up for marriage, to believe in the hard work and challenge of marriage. So I take umbrage at anyone who might suggest that those of us who worry about amending the Constitution are less committed to the sanctity of marriage, or to the fundamental bedrock principle that it exists between a man and a woman, going back into the midst of history as one of the founding, foundational institutions of history and humanity and civilization, and that its primary, principal role during those millennia has been the raising and socializing of children for the society into which they are to become adults.”

-Sen. Hillary Clinton 2004.

I fixed the meme. It was dripping with sexism, so I cleaned it up with some fact.

Both Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton are passionate supporters of LGBT rights. The difference between the two of them when it comes to this is that Bernie claims to have always been as progressive as he is now, whereas Hillary has never made that claim and has owned up to the fact that she–like America as a whole–has evolved on this issue.

Rights vs. Religion

First of all, let me tell you the story behind this.

Today at school, my grade all took a quiz in Civics to find out what presidential candidate was closest to our way of thinking. I was talking to a girl, and she asked what candidate I got. I said, “Hillary.” She got a look of disgust on her face, so I asked her what was wrong with Hillary.
The girl said “Well, she supports gay marriage and abortion. That’s wrong. The Bible said it’s wrong.” So I (tried) to state my case as politely as possible. Talking of rape victims and how people would be happier if they could just be together, no matter who it was with. I even quoted a Merthur fanfic I was reading at the time. “People fall in love with people, not genders.” Still, she said that I was wrong and it was weird and that no one should get abortions (blah blah blah.) She said that she followed the bible and not her parents views. (Sam thing but whatever.) So, later I told my friends what happened and we were discussing it, and I said something that sounded like a poem line. I decided to finish the poem. I’m not the biggest religious buff, so excuse me if some of this is inaccurate about Christianity beliefs.

Honestly, you should
be giving in
it’s the 21st century
what world are you living in
This is just ridiculous
Stop using your old scrolls
You’re acting like salty
12 year old internet trolls
Take a leaf from Apollo
He knows what’s fun
After all he let the son of Hades
Hook up with his son
The point is gay marriage
Is not the worst thing
Think of all the happiness
This could bring
God is supposed to
Represent love
I don’t think he’s too happy
With you all up above
You religion nazis
Think you know all
Then don’t hate on others
It’s not your call
If y'all hate the truth
And are still blind to see
All I have to say is
Why don’t you just forgive me?

This has been bothering me for a while and it’s come to a head today

Y’all

being *scared* is not, like, a point in an argument. You can’t be like “Me and [X demographic] are scared FOR OUT LIVES! How can you not understand that?!” as a legitimate point for why something should or shouldn’t be done and if you do you’re completely unselfaware and probably delusional. It doesn’t make you morally right and it sure as hell shouldn’t be your argument for anything.

Why do you think that Japanese-descended Americans were rounded up in the 1940s and put in prison camps? Because the rest of the American citizens were SCARED FOR THEIR LIVES AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

Why do you think that Muslims saw so much prejudice following the 9/11attacks? Because American citizens were SCARED FOR THEIR LIVES AAAAAAAAAAAAA

Scared people will do all sorts of immoral shit because they’re scared, so quit it or you’ll end up being controlled by some fear-mongering scociopath just like so many other points in history.

Just because you’re scared doesn’t mean you’re right. Calm the fuck down. It isn’t constructive.

With the Recent Supreme Court Decision it is Important to Look Back on How we Got Here. Bernie Sanders Cried Out For LGBT Rights Back in 1972, Hillary Clinton bitterly opposed it until just recently, but don’t take my word for it.

In 1972 Bernie Sanders drafted a letter which ran in news papers mostly around Vermont, in his letter he laid out a plain call to action. “Let us abolish all laws which attempt to impose a particular brand of morality or “right” on people. Let’s abloish all laws dealing with abortion, drugs ,sexual behavior (adultery, homosexuality, etc.).” - Bernie Sanders, 1972

That is quite a bit different than what Hillary Clinton had to say about fundamental human freedoms. Although her social media would have you believe Hillary Clinton was in the fight for LGBT equality all along, that could not be further from the truth. Watch her attack marriage equality in front of the Senate floor in 2004. 

“I believe marriage is not just a bond but a sacred bond between a man and a woman. I have had occasion in my life to defend marriage, to stand up for marriage, to believe in the hard work and challenge of marriage. So I take umbrage at anyone who might suggest that those of us who worry about amending the Constitution are less committed to the sanctity of marriage, or to the fundamental bedrock principle that it exists between a man and a woman, going back into the midst of history as one of the founding, foundational institutions of history and humanity and civilization, and that its primary, principal role during those millennia has been the raising and socializing of children for the society into which they are to become adults.”

hillary clinton didn't support gay marriage until 2013 you dumb faggot

I literally have never said anything otherwise where is this coming from

Those who could speak did so
hoarsely
some to say we’ll return to greatness,
but were we ever really there?
some to say the darkness might come for us,
but did it ever really go?

And the sun may have rose,
today as it has,
but on a day when the forecast is perpetual twilight,
a blustery wind that might sweep up
hangers, twisted
suitcases, packed
marriage certificates, frayed

will it ever really?

“We need to be discussing gay rights at a forum hosted by the LGBT community.

This guy gets it, folks. 

This is Bernie Sanders’ response to the Republican debate, in which the rights of women and LGBT individuals were discussed by old, straight, rich, (mostly) white men without input from the communities. How can you pass laws and regulate the circumstances of a person whose experiences you have never shared? 

Bernie Sanders sees the need for an appropriate format, where cis, straight, white men don’t get to dictate the experience of marginalized individuals. Support a man who supports you, support a man who asked to hear your voice.

Haters are out in full FORCE. Why? Well, because Hillary killed it during the Democratic debate from beginning, middle, and literally to the very last line of the evening:

“Thank you, goodnight, and may the FORCE be with you!”

::Hillary’s signature smile::

“Mr. Tump has a great capacity to use bluster and bigotry to inflame people and to make them think there are easy answers to very complex questions.

Donald Trump is becoming ISIS’s best recruiter. 

They are going to people, showing videos of Donald Trump insulting Islam and Muslims in order to recruit more radical jihadists.

So I want to explain why this is not in America’s interest to react with this kind of fear and respond to this sort of bigotry.”
–Hillary Rodham Clinton
