Gay people are starting to piss me off. Let me start off saying I am 100% for equal rights for every US citizen. That means they can marry and adopt
and have every other right according to the constitution.
Why do they have a flag in the first place. Should the straight people make a flag also and fly it above a government building. Gay people are so
filled with pride maybe they should try a little humility. You are not special, you do not deserve more rights than others.
Gay people like many others bought into the progressive mindset. You can see it in many ways including the I am special crap. And do not even get
me started on the whole anti-bullying lie. Gay people deserve no more or less than anyone else.
Buckle up, it's about to get bumpy.
1.) I really don't care what
pisses you off. Homophobes, bigots and season 3 of Supernatural piss me off. Let's all pass around the tissues
and have ourselves a cry-fest.
2.) Second sentence is proved to be a lie, as evidenced by other statements made. Talk to Maury.
3.)Third sentence is good, only you don't actually
4.) Why does the LGBT community have a flag? Because we are a community
. We have solidarity and an identity, or at least that's the idea.
Why do churches have flags? Theme parks? Arizona? Let's abolish those, too, since "special" groups apparently can't have one without being
questioned. You have
to agree, or else you can kindly refrain from wondering about ours. And be GLAAD they only flew the one, we have quite a
5.) Pride is not about the Community being "full of ourselves", it's about being able to walk openly without fear of oppression, of denigration, of
being put down. It's about being treated equally. It's about being who we are without being afraid. And yes, it's about saying we're not going
anywhere. Pride means different things to different people. We chose the rainbow as a primary symbol because all
are welcomed under it - gay
or straight, black or white, male or female. Hopefully one day you can get that.
6.) We're not asking for more
rights than others, pal, we want the same
rights as others. Surely that's not too hard to
7.) "Progressive mindset"? I love it. I choose to call the opposition "regressive" because that's how it looks - Let's all move back to the
50's, where gays are in the closet, women are in kitchen and black folk don't dare
speak to the White Savior. Please. Let's leave the
'progressive/regressive" trash in the dumpster where it belongs.
8.) EVERYONE is special. Deal with it.
9.) "Anti-bullying lie". This right here is where you lose the rest of your credibility. Since I'm assuming you're a straight white guy, let me
clue you in to a few things. Like what the CDC has to say on the subject
another good one
, although you will probably dismiss due to the name of the page. After
all, bullying is a lie
, right? No one puts down, belittles or threatens gay folk. Matthew Shepard would disagree. The LGBT folk who shared
concentration camps with Jews, Roma and Christians would also disagree. The highschool kids hiding from jackasses yelling slur words would disagree.
The Transperson murdered on a subway would disagree. The couple told they can't marry because they are women would disagree. The guys beaten
outside of a bar because "queers are gross". would disagree. Shut the hell up about "bullying is a lie." Moving on, before I get angry.
10.) That's the whole point, bucky, We deserve what everyone else has. If I choose to be in a same-sex partnership, I want the exact same
you have. And just like women had to struggle for it, people of color had to struggle for it, immigrants had to struggle for it, and
Indigenous people had to struggle for it - and newsflash kiddiwinks, they still do
- so does the LGBT community. Grow up, and realize that the
sandbox is big enough for all
of us to play in. Remember the ATS motto - deny ignorance.
Forgive me if I have offended.
