Is the following an example of metaphorical language?
if marriage equality is a civil right, then denying it on the basis of (innately felt) sexual orientation is, like discrimination on the basis of skin color, simple bigotry.

  • English 11 -

    No. It's about bigotry whether by sexual orientation or race.

    Two unlike things are not compared here.

    ok thank you

    You're welcome.
