When people arguing for gay rights make analogies to the civil rights movement of the '60s, there are some who will invariably snarl that gays are hijacking the civil rights movement. In reality, of course, they're the ones hijacking it, and its history. They try to paint civil rights as something only belonging to black people--never mind all the other minorities that have been oppressed over the centuries. No, if they weren't enslaved and they don't have famous court cases that everyone recognizes like Dred Scott v. Sanford, then they don't deserve any rights at all.
