I have noted many times how I cannot understand how anyone who is LGBT can support the Romney/Ryan ticket - or the GOP in general. The chart above compiled by Marriage Equality USA ought to make the analysis pretty simple for those who are LGBT citizens and those who are friends, family and allies of such individuals. The GOP party platform makes it clear that animus is perhaps the kindest thing that can be said about the GOP's view of LGBT individuals. The contrast between the GOP and the Democrats is striking on all fronts, including employment protections.
