In current society I think to actually have the continuous limited mindset that homosexuals or lesbians do not live among us is probably ridiculous. To try to destroy an admendment that allows them rights in the world is just cruel. Firstly, it doesn't matter if they love or appreciate someone of the same sex because for them it is of their preference and natural. Traditional people may think it's unnatural but if one was willing to open their minds, you would realize there isn't much difference between them or us. They're humans and not subjects that should be treated otherwise. Overall though, I think society just cannot be rushed into accepting this given fact but peerhaps they need to be introduced slowly that to have gays or lesbians is perfectly normal.
