Give it a rest lgbt folks there are more pressing issues.

That’s a faulty argument due to the fact that it could also be applied to any of the more pressuring issues you have in your mind. And any other issue anytime anywhere. There will never be ‘the most pressing issue’ and therefore no matter what the issue is, there can always be more pressing issues.

Just because there are other issues doesn’t mean an issue shouldn’t be taken care of.

I hope there will be a petition in support of M.Sugita's stance. I'd like to sign it (and a lot of other people too).

No, most people won't agree. What she said was sick and distasteful. Should women who choose not to have children in a straight marriage receive less too because they aren't "productive"? Give me a break.

A gay couple adopting children would be "productive" but it's not mentioned by this lawmaker. She doesn't want her stance to look flawed.

LGBT couple deserve the same benefits as everyone else. Who cares who someone goes to bed with or if they produce children? Immigration. Adoption. Careers. Just because a couple doesn't produce offspring doesn't discount their worth.

Nobody has picked on gay or weird people since the '80s. In the 90's, being black, gay or weird became mainstream.

How does having a black skin color become "mainstream"? All of the groups you mentioned? Still face persecution globally. Please see your way to a search engine and type in those words instead of trying to reinforce uninformed opinions.

Mio Sugita would have had a large number of votes at the last election.  25,000 is minuscule and would include many people without voting right.

Ok, The whole transgender thing is designed to promote population control. If you can't see that, than you are too far gone in the matrix. Nobody has picked on gay or weird people since the '80s. In the 90's, being black, gay or weird became mainstream. This whole "transgender promotion program" is masking the Marxism under belly by subverting the naïve college kids who ought to be studying something that will make them money, not social justice.
