"Like the poor, the gays will always be with us."

An LDS therapist drools condescension:
Society has come a long way in its regard for homosexual individuals. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders that I used when I first started working in the field of mental health had only recently removed homosexuality as a disorder. Even after medicine re-categorized homosexuality, the stigma resulted in far too much prejudice and mistreatment of homosexuals. 
Today most members of society treat homosexuals with courtesy, whether or not we agree with their lifestyle. However, being treated well by society does not necessarily mean that all the drawbacks of homosexuality will go away. Regardless of whether we bake them exquisite wedding cakes, take phenomenal photographs at their receptions, or rent them a room with the very best view in the building, homosexuals will still be deprived of some of the privileges afforded heterosexual couples.
