This is part of what is so frustrating for me when people talk about the struggle for LGBTQ rights being mostly behind us. I cringe when I hear progressive people talking about how we live in a “post-gay” world.

They don’t know what they’re talking about.

Its easy to put the blinders on if you live in a big liberal city, but there is a culture war going on, and the outcome is far from certain.

The “religious liberty” bill is just one problem. Trump’s appointment of reactionary lawyers to all levels of the federal court system is another, possibly even bigger problem.
