Human Rights Initiative Takes Over FB

Are you wondering what the in world the red equal-signs are, that's popping up in your Facebook news feed for profile picture change? Well wonder no more, they are for the Human Rights Campaign, which is the largest civil rights organization in support of gay marriage.

This weeks social media initiative assembled by the HRC was to gain supporters of equal human rights online as the Supreme Court is holding hearings on gay marriage. The symbol, an equal-sign which stands for equal rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered people has gone viral and gained many supporters from politicians to celebrities.

A decision following the hearings will set precedent for laws around the country regarding marriage rights in the United States.

Talking about raising the bar, I think the two young men who will attend this year's Junior Ball for McQuaid Jesuit High School as a couple are showing an extraordinary amount of courage.

Should they be able to attend as a couple? I think so, I believe everyone no matter your race, gender, religion, color, age, beliefs, etc. you should be able to be happy being who you are.
