    This Is The 21st Century

      Mankind is not at a stage where we have technology almost sitting in our hands, we so tout off freedom that we start an illegal war and raise our bristles when Russia went after Georgia. Paul McCartney's tribute song to the firefighters of 9/11 seems to float...

    People Are Stupid.

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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.
