what is the point of gay straight alliances why would i want to be in an alliance with straight people

Because we outnumber you. 

I’m not saying it’s fair. I’m saying it’s true.

fruit flies outnumber us too but you don’t see me being in an alliance with them

Fruit flies have very little influence on our lives apart from being a nuisance

not seeing many differences between fruit flies and straight allies

This fantastic skyscape lies near the edge of NGC 2174 a star forming region about 6,400 light-years away in the nebula-rich constellation of Orion. It follows mountainous clouds of gas and dust carved by winds and radiation from the region’s newborn stars, now found scattered in open star clusters embedded around the center of NGC 2174, off the top of the frame. Though star formation continues within these dusty cosmic clouds they will likely be dispersed by the energetic newborn stars within a few million years. Recorded at infrared wavelengths by the Hubble Space Telescope, the interstellar scene spans about 6 light-years.
