    Why is it so hard for some people to understand

    that sexual preferences aren't hetero or homosexual, it's your sexual attraction that identifies you as hetero or homosexual. Straight men and women can like anal sex without being homosexual men (yes, someone claimed that women who like anal must secretly be homosexual men) I...

    I support gay people.

    A lot of people I know are gay and I don't have anything against gays. Gay people should be treated like anybody else, if you think about they really are not that different from everybody else. Plus I believe that gays should not be bullied just because they like the same sex, I...

    I had changed my profile picture to the rainbow

    colors to show my support for marriage equality. People knew my stance just by seeing my picture. A man told me that I was just following a meaningless trend. This man has two Confederate flags on his truck, just like most people in my town. Need I say more?

    I love the LGBT community,

    I am stumped. I've been reading reactions to

    the Supreme Court decision to expand the right to marry to same sex couples and found a theme of dissent that confuses me. I am seeing many less 'it's against god's will' arguments which is a good thing. In it's place I see more arguments that rightly focus on civil rights, but...

    Do you still believe

    Ok, now that marriage equality is the law of

    the land, the real work begins. We must continue to fight against bigotry and discrimination and ensure that you cannot be refused housing or employment for belonging anywhere on the lgbtq spectrum.

    If your child is gay,

    it doesn't mean you failed as a parent. If you disown your child because they are gay, then you failed as a parent.
