    Well, you know how it is

    when your the smallest minority group. Your going to be bullied, picked on, and made fun of. So how didn't this all come about in western culture? The ancient Greeks stated it. Who ruled in those day? The bisexuals did. They made fun of us and in some cases beat and killed us...

    People Don't Like Lgbt Where I Live, I'm Gay :(

    I'm 19 and I live in Jamaica, people here are very homophobic so I'm in the closet, I have loved guys before or something like that but because of the fear I never really let the guys know that I like them like that; even when I thought the feelings were mutual, I just act as if...

    People Need To Calm The F*** Down

    Well I am not gay, but I do have a lot of respect for people who are. I have been told all my life that being homosexual is a very bad thing. I am Mormon, so I get this a lot from my parents and other Mormon people in my church. Only when I actually attended high school and made...

    Jokes At Work

    So many times, I have had to hear gay jokes while I'm at work and I just am not ready to make a stand and out myself to my co-workers.  Just this week, I overheard someone in the lunchroom telling a gay joke and I just walked away rather than create a scene.

    It sickens me. Especially how they bring

    religion into it and say that God hates gays, like really? If someone grows up feeling that way, and likes the same sex, LEAVE THEM ALONE! Don't treat them any different and don't look at them any different. Ugh. 😒 that's what bothers me about society and about people. Like...

    I was raised to not see others

    as different and i believe that everyone deserves to be loved. Gays an Lesbians to me are just the same as straight people. I don't understand how my brother who was raise exactly the same as me can be so different /.

    I am a high school student and I cannot tell you how many people at my school make fun of lesbians and gays. The new trend is "dating" someone of the same gender and use it to gain popularity with the opposite gender, which I will never get. They then will "break up" with the...

    I support gays and lesbians.

    And this is my thought: imagine if we, straight people, were always judged because we are showing love to our bf/gf, how would we feel? Put yourself on their shoes, be empathic. I bet you would hate it to the point of hating yourself. So respect their decision and respect them.

    Gay people are amazing

    and anyone who thinks they aren't, really needs to shut their mouth and open their mind. I'm not gay, but if I were, I wouldn't hesitate to slap the first person to insult me based on sexuality. I'm sick of all these homo-phobes.
