But it's not just about marriage. It's about one group of society telling the much smaller and isolated group that they are not equal. That because of one characteristic, they can't do something.
How would you feel if the subject was interracial marriage? Sure, marriage might not be important to you, but it's obviously important to other people, so the fact that these ******* dickmouths are holding them back matters.
What "other people" find important is not what I am discussing here. This "debate" is about our opinions, not the opinions of many others. In MY opinion, anything related to marriage is absolutely ridiculous and I couldn't care less. If a group can't get married, I don't care, if they can, I also don't care. I'm not "against" anything nore and I "for" anything, I don't care. Marriage in general is ridiculous and anything related to it is as ridiculous the subject itself.
Straight people don't need parades because, unlike gays, they haven't been oppressed for pretty much all of modern history.
Whether straight people need them or not is not the point. The point is, straight people don't do that. Why do gay people need to parade around without shirts and yell "I'm gay and I'm proud!"? It's a spectacle in many eyes and definitely in the eyes of the state. This does not help their cause of being serious and trying to get it where they can be married. Stop parading around and showing off the fact that you're gay, and start taking is serious. At the end of the day, it has no effect whatsoever on my life, nore do I care about marriage. My opinion, FOR THEM, is that they stop parading around and acting silly, take it seriously, and maybe something might change.
I don't even need to click on the link, religion causes many "problems" and this is one of them. I do not disagree at all.
That doesn't make it right.
Right or wrong that's how it is. Histroy repeats itself often, that's what happens. With religion, with putting themselves out there so much, with being the minority, it'll take a long, long, long time for things to change, especially with how they are handling it.
You have it backwards. They aren't singled out because of the way they act. They act the way they do because they are singled out.
Really? Because I can go for a long duration of time and not once think about the gay community, yet if I slap on the TV I can catch a parade with a bunch of people marching and yelling "I'm gay and I'm proud!". How exactly are they singled out by us when THEY are the ones marching down the street screaming that they are gay? I bet if all these parades stopped, if they lived normally and stopped this whole gay rights act, eventually enough gay people would naturally come out and states might consider letting them marry more, since it looks a lot less like a fad when they aren't marching the streets.
Black people didn't stop acting black in the 1960s. They got in white people's faces. They didn't allow whites to ignore them. Gays (some of them. Again, most of them act no different than me or you) are doing the same thing.
Well, that's fine, and how is that working out for them? See, the difference here is, we didn't put shackles on gays and make them work for us. Gays are just a group of people that have naturally risen. As such, if they keep making a spectacle of themselves and keep "getting in our faces", they should not expect to be treated as being serious.

People are gonna generalize me and you and call us "bigots" just like everyone generalizes everything including us about the gays.
Every kind of person has a group of them that ruins it for the rest of them. Gays are no different. I feel the same way about EVERY group, but they are not the topic right now, so I don't mention them. If blacks wanna be taken seriously they should act normal too. They ruin it for all the black people that try to be taken seriously. Same with whites. Same with Latinos. Same with midgets. It doesn't matter though because we are talking about gays here.
I seriously don't give 2 shits about whether someone is gay or not, or if they wanna get married. I really really really don't. But that doesn't mean I have to like the ones that make it blatantly over the top obvious every single day. I'm entitled to my opinion just like everyone else. It's not like I TRY to think this way. This is how I am. (sound familiar?)If you guys like gay people flaunting their personal sexual preferences then that's you. I don't understand it but whatever that your opinion. I don't go out of my way to show my disgust for gay people and they shouldn't go out of their way to show me how flaming gay they can possibly be.
And yes I realize that *** is slanderous. It was supposed to be. I was specifically talking about the ***s on TV who flaunt it excessively and make it seem cool to be gay. Once again, I don't care if your gay. But if your gonna act like a fool about it, then I don't care about what I call you. Just like I don't care about calling a black guy who sells crack and robs people to pay for his ice and shit, a dumb n*gger. That's what he is. Even a black guy will tell you this.
If your gonna go out of your way to represent yourself and your community in a stereotypical way, then expect to be called a stereotypical name. I probably sound like a bigot to alot of you because we have different opinions, so I expect some of you to call me a bigot. I'm not gonna cry about it though.
Obviously I am in the majority on this one. Most people don't like gay people flaunting their gayness. And it's not just straight people. Ask the majority of gays (that don't make it obvious) if they like how the gays on TV portray their community and they will tell you "hell no". So all you guys acting like elitists who think you're better then everyone else that doesn't agree with you need to step back. Just because you personally can tolerate blatantly flaming gay over the top queens, doesn't mean that you're way of thinking is the only way. Everyone has different opinions and ways of thinking. I'm not going to tell the gay community that they can't get married, but I will tell them to stop shoving their gayness in my face every time I wanna watch TV. Keep that shit to yourself. Simple as that. Maybe not completely on topic but hey I'm just venting
I agree completely.
