    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...

    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...

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

    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...

    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.
