2016 Has Been A Mixed Bag For LGBT Politics

At just about every Hillary Clinton campaign event this year, and much of last, you could find lots of rainbows and posters with the letters "LGBT" on them in the crowd. The average Hillary Clinton event has a healthy amount of gay, lesbian and transgender Clinton supporters in attendance.

This past Thursday at a rally co-headlined by Clinton and first lady Michelle Obama, Charlotte resident Matt Hirschy wore a rainbow-print "H" sticker and a wedding ring. Before the rally, he was still celebrating the achievements of last year, namely the Supreme Court's Obergefell v. Hodges decision, which made same-sex marriage legal throughout the country.

"If you would have asked me growing up that my parents would accept me for being gay or that I'd be able to get married, I'd probably laugh," Hirschy says. "Well, I probably wouldn't do anything, I'd run away scared because I wasn't out yet, but I'd probably be very skeptical of it."

Probably better off back in the closet. Since you have all come out, you done more damage to your cause then good.

I guess I am not too smart. But it seems to me that Obama and Hillary want to bring in all of these illegal immigrants that are Muslim. They want to make us a Marxist or Socialist Muslim country. We are already seeing the Muslims trying to get Sharia law throughout the United States. Well if you know anything about Sharia law they kill homosexuals and lesbians. They also kill women for infidelity. So it seems to me if I were gay or a woman I would be voting for Trump. Because I wouldn't want to die for my gender or sexual orientation. We all know Obama and Hillary both lie every time they're lips are moving. So she will say anything to get elected but after that she will never be able to do what she has promised. Just saying something to think about.
