the most important thing gay people can do is to be out.

attitudes towards homophobic legislation change dramatically when someone actually knows a gay person and knows how, say, the from-Hell amendment that was just passed in Virginia will harm gay people living in VA (and how a certain pair of homos have decided that, despite how nice Alexandria (esp. Old Town) and Arlington are, VA doesn't deserve our tax dollars)

ya know, A_Wanderer...I just had an idea. What if we do a contest? Like...we can set a deadline. And we go about our ways. I'll see how many people I can convince for a "change of heart" and you can do the castrating thing? Whaddaya say, you up to it?

I think both are valid methods. I can't say if one is definitely more effective than the other, but it would be fun to see how many people we can change. I mean this in all seriousness! I'm curious. We can keep tabs on each other.

I don't go out of my way to do it; im not that emotionally invested but if somebody starts crapping on about it being wrong I will go on a tirade about liberty and if they bring up religious justification I will justify atheism and anti-theism.

Opposition to God or specifically the idea of God - it's a weak solution.

So I can't answer your question with a yes or a no.
But I will say that I accept you as you are.


I just got done watching the Matthew Shepard story on A & E, it made me sick and sad to see that people are murdered for being gay.
I grew up with gays around me, some were my best friends.
My mother was bi-sexual and i learned to accept that sometimes, people just cant help who they love.
It would not be a way of life for me, but it doesnt bother me.

One thing i would like to ask those that oppose 'gay' lifestyles is
how many of you look at lesbian pornography...thats 'gay', right?

Not that anyone will be honest on here and come out and say 'yea, i hate/dislike/loathe homosexuality,
but i look at lesbian/gay pornogrpahy'.

But id really like to understand the mentality behind it.

i'm not opposed to red hair, i'm just opposed to the red-haired lifestyle.

I agree with martha on this for once in my life.

It's not something to support. It's something to accept and respect.

It's because you hate Boomer right? Right?!

On a more serious note though, homosexuals are alright in my book. I've had a professor last semester who was out and proud and you know, he was one of the most intelligent human beings I've ever met and I was so glad I took his class. He bought out views that you wouldn't really get from another person and it just opens your mind up. I've also got friends who are homosexuals and they're just plain awesome.

I don't know how someone could be against people who they don't even know, but don't like due to their sexual preferences. I know the world's big enough for all sorts of people... it's just one of those things that boggle the mind. How we're supposed to be so evolved yet we still can't get past the simple little things.
