'Protected Species' laws called 'hate crimes' laws:
For example, imagine both Ms. Quinn and I are both victims of similar crimes - perhaps vicious assaults in which we suffer comparable bodily harm. During the course of these crimes, the attackers repeatedly state their hate for us - in my case, hatred for white women (or short people, or Irish-American librarians, or whatever); and in Ms. Quinn's, lesbians. There are witnesses and both perpetrators are apprehended.
The only real difference will be the punishment the criminals receive.
Because she is part of a special minority, Ms. Quinn's beating would be treated as if it was worse than mine and the guilty party would be sentenced accordingly with a longer time in jail.
Someone please explain this "equality" to me thing again.
She also notes that carrying a 'socialistworker.org' banner at your 'rights' march doesn't exactly help your point
