    I Can't Believe It....

    I can't believe that we still have to fight for gay rights. Its just wrong. I mean, why the hell is it even an issue to begin with. Its no one's bussiness what so ever who is in love with who, or who wants to be with who for the rest of their life, other than the two in Love!

    My 2 Cents

    Its ridiculous that we are still fighting to be able to marry someone we love. Its absolutely ridiculous. Black people, woman, children, animals. All had to fight for their rights. And now today its the LGBT's turn. The only reason it isn't happening is because of religious...

    All people are people.

    And here in America, the issue is quite illogical. I don't know if it's the largest of an issue here, but when I hear about states legalizing gay marriage it makes me angry. I like the fact they're doing it, but the fact that it's looked upon as a totally different concept than...

    We're in 2011, for god's sakes. Why do we still have to fight to be HAPPY? Here in Canada, same-sex marriage is allowed and has been for about 5 years now, but it doesn't mean it still isn't frowned upon. No gays can get married in a church, though I wouldn't want to be married...

    I can't believe this society sees being a gay as some terrible stigma. There's nothing wrong with being gay. I say love is love and people just need to chill and be more accepting.
