So while I'm completely for LGBT full equal rights on every basis, I do struggle with the concept of intolerance. Someone who is against gay marriage would be labeled intolerant; however, at the same time, an individual who is against the right's proclaimed "traditional marriage" would also be intolerant, no? It's the aspect that frustrates me the most when I hear people debate gay rights/other beliefs.
Those who think marriage should be between a man and woman wish the law would reflect their belief, that the government wouldn't tolerate
same-sex marriage as a legal institution.
On the other hand, people in favour of gay marriage aren't opposed to straight people getting married (aka "traditional marriage"). They tolerate
the love of two people regardless of gender, and want the law to be tolerant
and recognise same-sex marriage.
