In my opinion, this is a wonderful thing. But, before some of you might begin arguing against my opinion, let me explain myself.
First, read this article to get some background about how our Maryland State politicians reacted: WBAL TV New Report
Second, hear is my justification. Personality and experience determines most of the decisions we make as humans. Human nature fills in the rest of the gaps. If this is our given assumption, then we can determine that sexuality is not a choice.
Sexuality determines which gender appeals to a person. This is the definition based on what I understand, and is different from Sexual Preference (what type of person someone is attracted to). Personality, which is responsible for other factors of a person, such as levels of extroversion/introversion, intelligence, etc. could therefore also be responsibility for sexuality. A person can’t really shift who they are on a fundamental personality level.
You are either outgoing or you aren’t, and you can learn to balance your weaknesses as a result. To overstate this point, you can’t change your sexuality.
So to sum this up, if you can’t choose your sexuality, just like you cant choose your personalty, why then would someone be given less of an opportunity because of it? If you think about it that way, it is a very simple answer.
