I can understand Gay people starting Gay threads; it is our lives and homes that are at stake.......I can understand why Gays get so emotional for the same reason...How many straight people get murdered for their sexuality???The Gay threads I have started have been in response to a FEW immature/hate-filled and outright lie filled threads. Why the obsession with starting gay threads.....you few know who you are....it is endless.....emesis regurgitated over and over but just in new packaging or a new screen name. From my experience in life people like this are trying to hide their own sexuality(or wide stance as some put it). Or are so full of hate/anger that they always lash out...if not gays they'll find a new group. Or do they want to troll for trouble and "brownie points"???? What's your opinion of this?????

The Majority Of Gay Related Threads Seem To Be Started By A Few Straight People
Who cares?

You don't get to decide who can post what.

p2s--you are living in a very pro gay area--i cannot imagine you have had much negativity towards your lifestyle???
having been involved there in the theatre community---you are very fortunate to live where you are--you could never do that in pittston(live easily in a homosexual relationship)_-----my homosexual family members here still at their late age
chose to remain quiet about their orientation

there are straight people out there that do not support gay rights-it DOES NOT mean they are homophobic or repressing homo tendencies----maybe they are just tired of one's sexual preference-becoming the center of ALL topics

That does mean they are homophobic.

The terms "lifestyle" and "preference" imply that homosexuality is a choice. It isn't. As I have said repeatedly: When people recognize that LGBT's are entitled to the same equal rights as heterosexuals, and those rights are granted, our fight for equal rights will not be at "the center of all" topics.

Until then, get used to it. If you are tired of hearing about it, help us change things.

only in your eyes--it just means they have a different view---otherwise that reasoning you have is if someone does NOT support a heterosexual's view--they are heterophobic----how ridiculous this all sounds

I guess the Jews should have been more tolerant of the Nazis. After all, the Nazis just had a different view.
