This is not a great comparison. Many Americans would like a government that reflects the diversity of the citizens it serves. Major corporations strive to do the same. Why is it not an accomplishment?
Because I don't view gay people different than anyone else when hiring as you must, its just the hiring of another person to me. This "accomplishment" shows me that this government views gays as different than everyone else and seperates them out into a group. And its sad that this government points it out and people like yourself agree that seperating a group of people out just because of their sexual desires is an accomplishment in this country.
