A gay couple stand outside a church that has a sign, "We are gay friendly. You can come and watch us play."
Inclusion doesn't mean you just let people exist. It means you let them participate.
I shouldn't say "you let them" because that communicates the erroneous and arrogant assumption that "you" are the authority that bestows privileges.
But the truth is everyone already possesses this inalienable right. The problem is those in power withhold them. They prevent them from being freely enjoyed and expressed.
It is an explicit and intentional act of violence upon other human beings' freedom.
