    If your kid is LGBT and you just can't

    "understand" it then think about this: finding out you're "different" from everyone else, being told by countless people that god will not love or accept you is very, very hard. You aren't a failure as a parent if your kid is gay. You, however, are a pretty crappy parent if you...

    I really hate the fact how half the people on

    this planet hate gay/bi sexual people! It really does make my blood boil how they just judge just like that and when they tell me what they think of gay/ bi people and I just look at them as if I was pick up a shovel and smash it across their face. I really don't see the...

    Today a middle-aged woman walked passed me

    and shouted over, calling me a "******-loving parasite" because I had this badge on my bag. Words can't describe how angry and disgusted I am that she would say such a thing. I guess people fear what they don't understand, right? Or they are just complete ********.

    I notice all too often

    that people in this group start experiences with: my friend is gay, or, I know someone who's gay and they're all right. So, until you realized they were normal everyday people it wasn't okay?

    My brother just said something

    so incredibly wrong... He just told me the reason it's so hard for the lgbt community to make advances is because they're so defensive, and whenever someone asks a question, the asker is attacked by the lgbt community. He said they attack people who don't hurt them. First off...

    As a lesbian who's been out

    for over 10 years, I'm a huge supporter and fighter for equal rights between everyone. I don't think gender, age or race should have anything to do with being legally allowed to marry whomever you love.

    I saw this beautiful quote on Facebook

    today: Marriage is not about religion. Atheists marry. Marriage is not about procreation. The infertile marry. Marriage is about love. That's it. And that's beautiful.

    So I was reading about gay rights in Africa

    and how there really isnt any. Some leader even claimed that they would behead any gay person including westerners who travel there. This article was from 2013 but it still shows the common attitudes of these vile bigots. That's not what stuck out to me though. What stuck out...

    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.

    I, with all my heart support gay rights.

    In my opinion it shouldn't even be 'gay rights' or 'gay marriage', because they are just as human as heterosexual people. So why should there be a difference between gay rights and human rights and other such stuff. I am a firm believer that everyone should have the liberty to...
