Personally I think those who are attracted to the same sex have something wrong in their hard wiring (brain) and therefor are mentally disabled.
Therefore their rights are already upheld under one of the other classifications of race, gender, handicap, religion and age.
Your the same people who had me locked into mental wards in my youth, and tried to Fix me.(Early 80's)
You just opened an old deep wound.
Sickening . And part of the problem.
I was trying to show a level of empathy to those who don't agree, but now I am reminded WHY we start pushing back against your base. I sometimes
block it out, and forget what VILE and hurtful people are out there.
I was thankful to the Daily show to bring this to light a few months ago. I love those guys!
They made deep scars in my life, and they do not, and WILL never go away.
It was like giving a C section to a woman who was not pregnant. Its pointless, but leaves a BIG SCAR!
Ugh. really bothersome, and there ARE lots like you. Like my father and his racist friends. Who would come home, and call me a queer, and kick my
ass, to MAN me up! Oh IT needed it... Being called IT, and other choice names, just brings back some old wounds.. I think I might step away from
this thread, AFTER I speak my peace.. You got this one coming.
People like you where the ones who made the CHOICE for me, before I even had the chance to know where I was going to fit in.
You know absolutely nothing.
And you need to read a book, or do some homework. WHAT about those born with both genders? HUH? Did you ever take that into account?
Glad you made your stance so clear.
I will admit, very honest. But still, you and others have deeply hurt me. And what have I EVER done to any of you...
The kinds of bullies that made me run in the past. Threatened my life, and beat on me.
Do you even realize where your line of thinking takes us.. and DOES to other living people. DO you have NO empathy?
Or are you just in closet. and repress your own very essence? I wonder now.
As everyone I have ever come across with that view. Like my dad was a closet case, and the DANGEROUS kind!
You are 100% WRONG. If I was mentally disabled, why do I not get a check for it. Your line of thinking is from the 80's. Sadly still lives and
breathes here today.
I hold a job, and worked all my life.. Ive even had bosses like you, who fired my ass for being me, they got away with it too, as I am to passive to
stand up for myself.. Now you just woke up a sleeping giant, and I will speak my mind on here, and I will stick up for all those who you attack with
There is NO empirical data that supports your "personal" feelings. NONE, just all Right wing BS.
More BS, and its time I start climbing that BULLshi#T mountain to educate you, and show you, that you are not only wrong, but you are HURTING
I was a fool to "pander" to your base.. Makes me sick to my stomach that I even tried. But I will never stop showing empathy for those in this world,
not even you Chester. I feel bad for you, and pity you in all truth. That you go through this life, with those feelings pushing ignorance and
misunderstanding. Even in light of your personal feelings.
Why is LOVE a sickness?
I think maybe you should spend a few weeks in a mental ward, and have all these horrible things done to you.. Then you might change your tune.
Yet at the same time, as I cool off here.. We asked to call you out.. You stepped up. And made it clear. We asked for you to come and speak your
mind.. You did.. so I can not totally freak out, I have known you are out there, I just tried my best to say, "no people over all are understanding
and have love in their hearts." I was a fool to be so naive.
Let me share something I wrote on another website that I can not name here.. But this is what happened to me.
My father had me put into a mental ward. They told me what I was sick, and I had major issues that needed "fixing". So they dosed me up on
something, I still do not know what it was.. but it was horrible. I was young at the time. they hooked my private parts up to a shocking machine. And
every time they showed me an image of a "gay" they would shocking the living # out of me. That went on for days, until I started to become numb.. The
next set of "therapy" was to pray the gay away.. I was forced into bible study, and was told over and over again I was going to burn in hell for my
sins. As a young kid, it had an affect upon me. it really scared me. . AS they induced fear into me for being who I was. The last session was taking #
and putting it into a bottle, and they would have me wear that bottle around my neck. The put a cork in the bottle. And anytime I had "gay" urges. I
was made to smell my own #... I was later released.. with deep scars, and an inner hate for these so called doctors......
Thankfully my mother came to her senses and got me away from him, and those "doctors".
All because I was born with a "deformity". Which I wrote about on another.. But NO way am I sharing that here. I do not need people like you coming
in there and being a bully and pushing your "personal" feelings upon.
And they wonder why we start to push back.. I stepped back, and tried to show empathy to those who did this stuff to me. But when it gets brought up,
And takes into account, how we are NOT treated as equals. but as "sick" people. Or disabled. Total non sense. Absolute non sense.
And in ending, this is all very relevant to this discussion, as people being treated as equals. Not being treated like sick animals who need help. We
DO NOT need mental help. What we need are EQUAL rights!
