I love these paragraphs by my friend Ali Davis:
The idea seems to be based on a logic of progression that assumes rights are like poker chips, with only a finite number available: If I win some, I must somehow take them away from you. If I hope to win more, your pile gets smaller again.
If one were to make that assumption, then, yes, I can see how the gay rights movement must be scary.
But I like to think of rights more like zucchini – I’d like to see them bursting of the ground, with plenty for everyone. So much so that you even get a little sick of them and have to sneak them into rights bread and rights cake.

Yummy rights bread.
