    no matter your sexual orientation, male or female, or color all humans deserve equal rights.

    Yes, of course. You might as well ask whether straight people deserve equal rights. Ordinary human rights apply to everyone; they are not a privilege reserved to the straight majority.

    Why are you even asking this question?  As a human being who doesn't hurt others in actions why wouldn't anyone deserve "equal rights"?  Now for those who think equal rights have been achieved just because in most western, liberal societies, marriage between two people of the same sex has been given legal status, let's think again.  A very large disproportionate number of LGBTQ+ people still are unemployed, lack appropriate housing and suffer from physical and emotional attacks which results in more deaths from youth suicide that other demographics.  "Equal rights" should insure that all members of the society live with respect and acceptance regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, ability and sexual orientation.  This is simply still not the case even in the most liberal and progressive societies.  And as for those who wish harm to others because they may be different, just look at the answers you've seen in this part of yahoo answers.

    Equal as in the same rights. 

    Look I am all for abandoning our quest for equal rights if the legal system also is willing to abandon its demand that gay people up hold the laws and the tax mob stop seeking tax from us equal to straight people.

    You see we are expected to behave the same,  why would we not expect to be treated the same.

    Yes, absolutely.  They deserve the same rights as you, me, or anyone else and support their equality in society and under law.  And why do you feel the need to hide behind chickenshit anonymity if you are so strongly supportive of LGBT people and their rights?  Have some courage of your convictions.

    EVERYONE deserves equal rights.

    Kenny is wrong, we need protected classes to move society forward towards that ultimate goal of everyone having equal right (which is quite a ways off still).

    You have an equal right to vote you have the same rights as any other citizen. You should not be granted extra rights because of your sexual preference.

    Yes, but they don't need to be a protected portion of the population . Everyone deserves equal rights .
