“It’s amazing to witness how attitudes on gay rights have evolved in my lifetime,” said Jack Hunter, the artist behind next week’s cover, “Moment of Joy.” Hunter, who originally submitted his image, unsolicited, to a Tumblr, continued, “This is great for our kids, a moment we can all celebrate.” – The New Yorker

  1. I know of course that it is special to have Equal Rights in America, but still I wonder why it actually IS so special that the people in America are getting Equal Rights!
    America is supposed to be the county in the World were everyone is equal, to have equal opportunities, to be considered equal under the law, to be treated as everyone else….. without discrimination, exclusion, or what reason what so ever…..
    And still it is considered special to see to see Bernie cuddling Ernie (or vice versa) on the cover of NewsWeek…. as it is considered special to see a guy on the football field to kiss a teammate when he made a goal! Or when a politician stands up and declares that he or she is homosexual, or when someone at work says that he or she is homosexual….

    What IS so special about being homosexual?
    Nothing! Really… nothing is special about being homosexual!
    Homosexual people breath, as do heterosexual people!
    Homosexual people have red hair, as do heterosexual people!
    Homosexual people have broken legs, as do heterosexual people!
    Homosexual people pull teeth, as do heterosexual people!
    Homosexual people become Prime-Ministers of a country, as do heterosexual people!
    Homosexual people get born, as do heterosexual people!
    Homosexual People are human beings, as are heterosexual people!

    Nothing special about being a homosexual person…….. as there is nothing special about being a heterosexual person!!

    The fact that some heterosexual people feel they are better, greater, nicer, normal, whatever… makes them worse, smaller, badder, abnormal……..

    BUT…… as a human being never ever accept to be considered of lesser value, capable of lesser then anyone else!

    Still it is strange that homosexual Americans must fight to be regarded as normal………
