This is a suggestion for the people in Nebraska who don't understand gays and lesbians, but who might care to try. This might be a good movie for you to see. Harvey Milk is considered by most in the gay community to be the first gay man elected to a political office. He was also a staunch activist, and within 10 months of his election he was murdered, along with the Mayor of San Francisco. Senator Dianne Feinstein from CA, became acting mayor of San Fran. upon the Mayor's assassination.

Personally I can't wait for it to come out.

It's a movie. He's not holding a gun to your head and making you watch it. Chill out.

As much as I want gay and straight, liberal and conservative to come to terms with individual lifestyles, I just don't see that sort of tolerance in the U.S. in the forseeable future.

Why can't people love who they want? There is so much underlying homophobia in this country it's crazy. We're all human beings living on this rock together, but instead of embracing one another and working together in our own communities, we shun those we see as radically different. Who wants to live their lives judging and being judged?

It's not hard to think about, it's not a hard thing to achieve (at least in my mind).

I'm not attempting to single out any post in this thread, it's just a broad generalization of what I see everyday.

And that's what the bigots do everyday.
