Really? Unabashed bigotry means nothing to you?
No, it really doesn't mean much to me when I think the subject in general is ridiculous. I find marriage to be completely useless and pointless, thus the subject at hand "gays getting married
" is far, far down on my list of things to worry about.
You act like all gay people are running around in assless chaps and acting fabulous, when the fact is you wouldn't even be able to tell whether or not someone is gay 95% of the time.
Having a "gay pride" parade is keeping a low profile and not showing you are gay?
Why should they have to conform to what you consider "normal"? Maybe the way they act bothers you, but does that mean they deserve less rights? I mean, goths and emos bug the shit out of me, but that doesn't mean I'm opposed to emo marriage.
"Normal" means "nothing special". Being gay, if they want it to be taken seriously, should be as normal and natural as anything in the world. Thus, showing off being gay by having large parades is not "normal", it's taking your "group" of people and singling them out from others. It attracts attention, it's a "gay pride" parade, not an "everybody of all sexual orientation" parade. Being normal means not trying to bring all sorts of attention to your group, as people who are straight don't go around having straight pride parades.
No, they will never get married in this country as long as people in this country are so blinded by their religion, but that's a different thread.
I agree, religion is a part of it.
Yeah, because understanding history isn't important at all and it never repeats. Ever.
I couldn't care less if "history repeats". History normally does anyways. The fact is, with religion, with the way they single their group out from others, how they are a minority, they will almost always be run over by states and their marriage laws.
Really? Because it definitely sounds like you have something against gay people.
And are you really blaming the gay people for their "fabulous" culture? After centuries of oppression and bigotry, I think they've earned the right to flaunt without people like you bitching.
People like me bitching? I never talk about gay people, I don't even think about them in my daily life. They are nothing special nore are they of any worry from me. I am annoyed at how they attract so much attention to themselves then wonder why the hell everyone singles them out. They can do whatever they want, that's none of my business. I don't vote, so trust me, my vote isn't going against them.
However, if they want to be taken seriously, if they want to actually have states consider letting them get married, if they want to be "treated" as equel and have the same marriage rights as straight people, then they need to act seriously about it and stop putting on parades in the middle of streets. That's a fact.
