True parity will not come until there is no need to make such announcements at all. That a person is gay will no longer be newsworthy. However, the extreme-right wing in this country has joined forces with the corporotocracy, who recognize that a population of TV-raised consumers with no critical thinking skills are much easier to subjugate and control than an educated, aware citizenry who can and do ask questions and speak truth to power. Thus, those such as the Koch brothers, the Walton family, and Wall $treet will continue to buy and oversee one entire political party in this country, and far too much of the other. Our corrupt campaign finance system, backed by a population that only cares that "Dancing with the Stars" and "Duck Dynasty" appear on their televisions at the proper time, ensures that those who get into powerful positions come into that power pre-bought and paid for. Thus, I fully expect that it is equally possible that America will become a theocracy in fact if not in name much sooner than our GLBT brothers and sisters achieve true equality.
