How long before a person's sexual preference no longer matters? Well, after these many years with the struggles for civil rights and equal rights--more than my lifetime so far--we still hear about the first Hispanic this and the first woman that. So I imagine fifty years hence there will be an article about the first openly gay female Afro-American NHL referee.

And hopefully people will say, "So what?"

We'll know we've achieved TRUE equality when a person can just plain screw up and no one thinks it's because they're a _________ (woman/ black/Jew/Hispanic/lesbian/lacrosse player--whatever; pick one.)
