    I never thought it would happen.

    I have always been Indiana born and bred and proud. My coworkers can always identify me by the IU symbol on my hat. I am hanging it all up. The barbaric, hateful and ignorant law that just passed in Indiana has done it. Until it has been repealed, I refuse to support...

    I envision falling in love with people,

    not just their gender. Love is much deeper than that.

    I don't like how we class them

    as gay. People are people. And rights are more so privileges but that's another story.

    In the United States,

    everyone has the same rights by law, no matter what their race, gender, or sexual orientation. Because gays already possess the same rights as everyone else, the continued push for gay rights bothers me. The term "gay rights" separates gays from the rest of society. All humans...

    I don't get it. I just do not understand

    why they can't get married. I'm neutral on gays, because gays are ordinary people. They've been around since forever. So, as ordinary people, hopefully they can be accepted too. I mean, it goes both ways though. Gays: Stop being so ******* sensitive. Homophobes: Get a...

    The LGBT+ community shouldn't have rights.

    ... The LGBT+ community should have exactly the same right as anyone else, no more, no less.

    I am not gay. I wouldn't want to be.

    And sometimes, I don't approve of their lifestyle. (I don't want to be a hypocrite). HOWEVER, that doesn't mean they shouldn't have rights. They are still humans. Love is love and the heart wants what the heart wants. Even if I HATED gays, that gives me no right to dehumanize...

    Until we level the playing field so that everyone has the same rights and responsibilities, we will never achieve an equitable society. It is is difficult enough in this world to find someone to share mutual love and respect, without imposing such restrictions on love.Long...

    Of course gays should have rights,

    but I also think I should not have their life style forced upon me as something I have to agree with. I say live and let live, but would all you gay people please just keep your private business private?

    It's 1 reason why if I decide to be Christian

    when I'm older, I'm not going to be Catholic because I don't believe in sexism & anti-gay. My opinion is that homophobics are poorly educated. There seems to be no other good explanation.

    For Me It'S Simple.

    For me it has always been simple. At the age of ten I watched a TV show with a gay character. I learned about his struggles and to be honest, I didn't understand why he struggled. At that age I didn't see anything wrong with a boy liking another boy. I didn't have any issues with...

    I understand that gays just got the right to

    marry in all 50 states of America. But imagine how people are going to act around the areas where it was previously illegal? Or even hated. I love the fact that gays are starting to get noticed. However, they will still get disgusted looks in public if they try to act how normal...
