Plans in works to mark raid on Lawrence

I'm pro-queer, but I think you're being a little dramatic here Enlightenment. The suffering that gays experience and have experienced shouldn't be minimized, but being an oppressed minority is hardly comparable to being considered the private property of another human being.
