Perspective is everything: we argue over marriage equality in the US while . . . .

China makes sex slaves out of female North Korean refugees, Iran executes gay men by hanging, and women in Morocco are being stoned because their skirts are too short.

I don't want to intervene militarily all over the world, but I do think it would be a good thing if (a) the US government actually found the courage to condemn some of this; and (b) the reality that most of the rest of the planet is filled with not-so-good place to live ever penetrated our discussions.
