North Dakota denies protections to LGBT people

While the Republican Senate in North Dakota vote to protect LGBT (yes, T... well, mostly) in state law, the Republicans in the House decided against it.

Great. From the On Top Magazine article:
“[Being gay or lesbian] is not something that you're born with, that you have no choice in,” said Rep. Robin Weisz, a Republican from Hurdsfield, told the AP. “It is a behavior, and it is a lifestyle choice.”
Great. *Deep breath in so as not to drive to North Dakota and start screaming.* Meanwhile, there's a really sweet sub-story State Sen. Fiebiger who took up LGBT rights after his son come out. What does this tell us, chillun?
