    Q : I don't see straight pride around

    so why would gay pride be necessary? A : when straight people are told that their love isn't real, or even better that they are going to burn in Hell by their religions, that the beautiful feel for their partner is evil, then then we can have Straight pride.

    signs that say whether or not gay people can come into their establishments. what is this, 1960? if my girlfriend and i want a ******* Chick Fil A sandwich we shouldn't have to pretend to not be in love just to order the damn thing.

    I must admit that I love gays people.

    Personally, I don't understand why people are against homosexuals. It is as if I said that I don't like fish, I will not complain to the fishermen they are disgusting. I'd be pretty silly! There is also, if I go to order a sandwich in Subway, and the person behind me did not...

    Why are gay people still looked down upon?

    You think they choose a life of discrimination? You think they chose to be gay? When did you choose to be straight? It's already been scientifically proven gays are born that way. It's like bullying a kid for being autistic. It's just so funny to see people's arguments who are...

    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.

    Yeah. I figured the title might catch attention. I did that on purpose. Honestly, this shouldn't be an issue. I think it's only common sense that your personal or religious beliefs do not justify the denial of basic human rights. I cannot stress this point enough. I don't care...

    I think they're annoying parasites and I have better things to waste my time, energy, and resources on. That being said, I can't imagine disowning your own child because of who they love. How does someone do that to their kid? Aren't you supposed to want nothing but good health...

    how some people hate or don't like gays, lesbians, etc. It's so normal to see a straight person be like "Ew he's gay, what a f*ggot." and stuff like that but you never see a gay or lesbian go up to a straight person and be like "ew, he/she is straight." It's not right. If...

    I'm sitting in the supermarket parking lot,

    and two young men pull in to the space parallel from me, the driver comes around and smiles at the other as he gets out and they stare at each other for a long moment, then the driver says "i love you" and they linked arms and walked off-it was so cute!

    that dislike people from the LGBT community. If there happy, law abiding, causing no harm to anybody else there should be no problem. Some of the brightest and most intellectual enlightening people i know are happily gay. Just leave em alone.

    Gay people are the best people!

    Almost all of them are generally happier, prouder of who they are, and more likable. If I could be best friends between 50 straight people or 1 gay person, I'd choose the gay person. They also make you feel loved and worth living and accept you.
