    Whether you see the connective tissue between forms of religious, racial, gender-induced, or orientation based discrimination, is not especially pertinent to a discussion of the tactics civil rights activists use to fight them in the business world. Normally civil rights activists target businesses they perceive as engaging in discriminatory treatment with extra attention. If the Jewish Defamation League catches the scent of an employer refusing to hire or serve Jews , that is a business where they are going to send some 'love', in their war against anti-Semitism. They may send a threatening letter, declare a boycott, or send a few Jews in there for evidence. Same is true of women, gays, blacks or even older Americans who think they smell bigotry.

    I'm sorry, your single word with three interrogation marks doesn't indicate what is not understood.
    Which part of the quoted are you having trouble with?

    Sexual orentation is not chosen, I do not go as far to state it is innate as the medical community cannot agree at this point of study but it has been found that sexual orentation is determined long before sexual maturity (either by environmental factors, genetics or hormones). All of this correlates with my personal experience and the experiences of others I have spoken to on the issue.
