They really aren't though. If someone treats it as if it was political because their party of choice mandates it, that person has failed as a human being, because they lack both compassion and cognitive ability. It's not a political position to deny someone their human rights, it's an asshole position.
I mean I agree it's an arsehole position to oppose someone having civil rights, but that doesn't mean it's not also a political position, if that discrimination is ideologically motivated. Politics can be unethical or inhumane.
Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023. (And over 130 million lifetime)
