    "nothing To Fear But Fear Itself.. Oh, And Those Pesky Gays!"

    It's sad to me that in this Country (the United States)  that was supposedly a government of the people, by the people, for the people still denies so many people the rights that the constitution promised them.   EVERY Man (I say that not meaning to exclude Women but that's the...

    Actually, I Can Believe It

    Thank your local neighborhood fundie! Oh they're so much fun, aren't they? Sam Harris once wondered: what would the world be like today if someone had slipped a sentence like "Redheads are prone to evil" into the Bible or Qur'an. If that sentence had made it into one...

    They're People Too

    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.

    People are so arrogant it makes me want to slap

    them. JUST GET OVER IT. WE'RE ALL DIFFERENT. Most gays are probably better people than homophobes anyways.

    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...

    It's 2011...

    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...

    This Should Not Even Be An Issue

    And yet it is. Why? I cannot, for the life of me, think of a viable reason. Homophobia is nothing more than fear. Poorly founded fear. How will it affect you if two men are married? Is it gross to you? Do you think it impossible that two people of the same gender...

    It Should Be No Problem

    We should all accept each other for who we are.  There is no reason for discrimination.  Homosexuals are people too and they need their rights.  It's just like religion, everyone has a different outlook and we should leave the other people with other...

    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...

    I can't believe that we still have to fight for gay rights period! I mean, I know that some people are so closed-minded that they refuse to look at another's point of view, but love is love! People shouldn't be denied their right to love.
