Gay Marriage and Political Correctness

It may not help to know that people who worked to gain equal/civil rights for homosexual Americans, starting in the early 1950s, were aware that the effort to educate people on sexuality could go too far in the other direction—and have unintended consequences. But the problem was discussed in the first national/public homosexual publication, ONE Magazine. 

While the organization behind it had to go to the U. S. Supreme Court (1954-58) to protect its right to publish such material/views, the editors always worried that someday fanatics could go too far in trying to force everyone to agree on the “correct” view.

The perfect example, currently in the news today, is that if we got marriage equality, then some people would then say all homosexuals had to marry, ignoring the very rights to privacy that we were pushing for.
