  • Gay Rights connect to the theme because choosing your domestic partner, or sexual choice is a human right.
  • Without Gay Rights being legal, we the people would be discriminating against people just because of a choice.

This would cause depression, or even attacks from homosexuals on people that are hating on them. This could also cause suicide.
