You Said It!
--------------------------------------------- (Click here for more quotations)

Actress Sophia Bush  "When we're talking about the ’60s, when my best friend couldn't drink out of the same water fountain as I can because his skin is a different color than me. ... Now, you're talking about a different best friend of mine who can't get married even though I could get married seven times in my life and he can't do that because he is a different sexual orientation than me? That's absolutely a civil-rights issue."   — Sophia Bush
