And just what kinds of "pathogens" do you think you're going to get from gay people??

If you even have to put this query forth, then its pretty much common knowledge that you have never experienced the pleasure of a BJ, which also leads one to think that your opinion of everything else is pretty much moot.

Really?
Whose definition of "tolerance"? Your's? Or our's? Why are we the ones that have to bend to your morals?

You guys continue to whine about how we need to be so tolerant....but when we dare to disagree with you we're labeled with some made up stupid name. Start dishing out some tolerance and maybe you'll get it in return.

So you agree that if one is not homophobic that something is wrong with you...thanks for clarifying that...it explains a lot.

Do you have a personal definition of the word that doesn't agree with the universally accepted definition?

True tolerance is not just agreeing on everything, but it's allowing for disagreement. I don't see that from you and the others on this board.


The topic of this thread is a prime example. Anyone that disagrees with homosexuality is labeled a "homophobe" and then someone starts a thread to consider if it's a mental issue.

Honestly...this crap just gets old. You want to believe we're wrong? OK. But calling us stupid names and questioning our sanity over it is stupid.

Exactly. Heaven forbid you have a different opinion.

I don't have a problem with gay people necessarily, though I do have a problem with gay culture and the opinion that I must be completely accepting of it or be labeled an intolerant bigot

Actually tolerance isn't about agreement or disagreement. It is about... okay, so what? I see no reason why people get their panties twisted in a nod over homosexuality. So, I have no reason to have an issue with gays and lesbians. They are humans, like me, and have the right to be who they are.

Agreement/disagreement only creeps in when you deal with folks who maintain oppressive ideas and go out to enforce them. Calling them homophobes is NOT being intolerant.
