The two arguments show the truth. The repubs WANT TO KNOW, and probably for nefarious reasons. ("Without an accurate understanding of LGBTQ Americans' geographic location, it's much harder to craft federal policies that address their needs." -- RIGHT!!! like repubs care about them as human beings, citizens) Dems know that this information will risk LGBTQ's safety and employment ... which is already happening. So why make it easier for them to discriminate?
