GLTB or GLT?

Boise is considering a city ordinance that will protect civil rights and liberties of "gay, Lesbian, transgendered,  and bisexual" person.  My friend is an open-minded and tender-hearted person who believes in civil rights for "everyone."  But she wants to know why "bisexuals" are included in the category of people who need protection.  The only answer i could give her was "because the other three groups, homosexuals, Lesbians, and transgendered persons, wanted them included"    I figure that if the homosexual community wants to include bisexuals that is none of my business; yet i sort of agree with my friend that the issue of "bisexuality" is not the same as the issues of homosexuality or gender identity, being more "morally tinged." I know that my friend would be more supportive of GLT protections than GLTB protections, and part of me agrees with her.  But i feel like the old racists who wanted to extend rights to "deserving" minorities -- stupid and wrong.

Guru Nanak - Ek Omkar

A poem by the founder of Sihkism, followed by an incisive commentary by Ivan Granger.
Permanence and Change must both be part of the one and must be united in the One.
This is not "the more things change the more they stay the same."
It is something deeper, "esoteric" mystical.
 
Poetry Chaikhana | Guru Nanak - Ek Omkar
