    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.

    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...

    I envision falling in love with people,

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

    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...

    I think it sucks that Americas supposed to be

    "the land of the free and home of the brave" yet were JUST NOW starting to legalize same sex marriage because we've been scared for so long. Who are we to say who another human being can and cannot marry? Honestly, it's offensive and I can't believe it's even going on.

    Humans are humans...your character is what

    matters most. Gays should be able to live freely and to marry whoever they choose.

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

    You Can'T Change A Person

    No one can change a person, no one can change a gay to be straight, it's who they are. Accept and live on, it's a free world, so many selfish people out there that bully people because they are gay, bi. I am bi woman, I can't come out because my family/relatives and so many in...

    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...

    Sexuality In the Military

    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...

    I never thought it would happen.
