Moms, Grandpa, what was inequality like?
We’ll be telling our grandchildren the story of the fight for our rights and watching their faces light up with disbelief since they live in a world of total equality. The History Channel will be airing documentaries educating the masses on the discrimination we faced and the history of it all. (Comments by Aela H. Mass and Derrick Chapman Gamboa)


A lesbian in the White House — with her first lady
By then we hope we’ll have had an openly gay president. Many think it will be a lesbian who will finally put our economy in order, stop the wars, and fight for equal pay and health insurance for all, regardless of gender or color or shape. Someone hoped for comedian Kate Clinton to be in the Oval Office taking life by the balls (figuratively speaking), but that might take another miracle—the old girl will be 110 that year.

Bisexuals finally get respect.
It may take a lesbian in the White House, but finally bisexuality will be embraced by the masses. No more “you’re either gay or you’re straight,” and even some different family structures (threesomes, anyone?) will become normal for many Americans.

Labels are for aliens and zombies, not people.
Labels will be so over — for people at least. Everyone will be too busy fighting zombies and aliens to worry about different sexualities or gender identities. (Comments by Christopher Michael Hammel and Brus McKee)



Hologram hair.
No more debate over fauxhawks and mullets; the future will bring hair that adjusts to your mood and to overpasses. (Comment by Dennis Equality Ohalloran)



Robot porn.
C’mon, you know you want it. (Comment by Joey Boyd)
