    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?

    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...

    Did anyone anyone hear what happened in Arizona.

    Owners can deny service to gays. Well guess what, to anyone who supports the bill I have one thing to say to you. F*** you, it's not a choice people make. It's who they are and you have respect that. Their humans for Christ sake. They deserve equal rights. If I ever see someone...

    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...

    Sexuality In the Military

    I read an article this morning about Obama dismissing the Don't Ask Don't Tell law for our Armed Forces. Some of the reasons that they are holding off on repealing it is that it could be "uncomfortable" for recruits to shower and or bunk with someone who is gay or a...
