With all due respect and no reflection on the article as a whole, referring to the student as an LGBTQ person is an absurdity of political correctness. It is impossible to be "lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer all at once as one individual.
I sincerely believe that if you lined up a group of kindergartners on the Capitol steps and then gunned them down on national TV, the reaction of some members of Congress would be, "Damn, now I have to use the side entrance so I don't get blood on my shoes."
It's enought to gag a maggot, that, unfortunately, that is a likely scenario. Hardly ever, does one find a modicum of sorrow from most of them about all the violent gun deaths that occur regularly.
There are far more members of PDA (Progressive Democrats of America, an organized and officially recognized group with officers) than there are people claiming to be tea partiers. However, they receive constant attention by the media whereas you hear little or nothing at all about PDA. Also The People's Budget submitted by Rep. Raul Grijalva, chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, which even Paul Krugman said was the best proposal he has seen did not get any coverage. I guess if we want to be noticed we would have to be as outrageous and controversial as the tea partiers.
If you were to ask anyone why he or she is involved in the tea party (not capitalized as it is not an organized group, or even controllable for that matter) I think it would be difficult to get a reasonable or intelligent answer.
