    100 years ago it was women, 50 years ago it was the black community, now it is us, and it's the same damn thing over again, the same arguments, the same intolerance. Why can't people see that our rights are inevitable? We already have rights in more progressive countries like...

    "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...

    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...

    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.

    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!

    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...

    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...

    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...
