Marriage - you guys trying to force marriage as between a man and a woman (oh and ignore the multiple divorces).
Schools? Trying to force Creationism on kids.
Shall I continue?
Actually, the people asking for Creationism in schools (Which I oppose) are very few and in small clusters in certain towns.

Human sexuality is an objective biological binary trait. No one is born with a gender. Everyone is born with a biological sex. Gender (an awareness and sense of oneself as male or female) is a sociological and psychological concept; not an objective biological one.

I have also mentioned reincarnation. If one has reincarnated many times as one gender then gets thrust into the opposite I can see how it might make one feel uncomfortable....but it doesn't mean they should change their gender and have sex change operation. In metaphysical terms the soul must need to reincarnate as the opposite to develop balanced outlook. But people mostly do not want to look at that.

American College of Paediatricians (ACP).
Along with NARTH, a deceptively named pediatricians’ group is a second primary source used vilify gay people. The National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH) is not the only game in town when it comes to providing “scientific” support for anti-gay groups. The American College of Pediatricians (ACPeds) has done as much to defame gays and lesbians, all in the name of protecting children. A professional organization for socially conservative pediatricians and healthcare professionals, the group has taken a number of hard-line positions when it comes to LGBT rights, advocating for a prohibition against adoption rights for same-sex couples and also offering high praise for reparative therapy. www.splcenter.org...
