I get your point, and agree that many people face discrimination differently.. but not being able to afford something is different than not being able to Live

no you don't, and i support your freedom to believe what you will... if you knew my 23 years on earth you would know many people "don't like me" based on abusive actions, statements Etc.

but "Gay Agenda" is a word people use to bring bad attention to Progress and Equality. Marriage Equality "Gay Agenda" Work place Equality "Gay Agenda" Anti Discrimination Protection "Gay Agenda"

i think people can not agree with someone and also not be hateful, ignorant, abusive Etc towards people

I don't hate anyone, but I don't always like what they do. I don't care what you do in your life, but someone doesn't 'hate' you just because they don't support your lifestyle. I have been on this earth 5 decades and I still haven't found anyone I hate.

I'm sure many people don't want to see many things in the News, that doesn't make them less or more important to report on an d bring awareness too. if you don't want to read a story about LGBTQ issues, don't read it, don't watch it.... also don't put us in the same line as Pedophiles because that is just ignorance talking




Look do what you want, stick it were you want or chop it off if you want.

I dont honestly care.

Just do t expect me to clap, cheer or be even remotley intrested.

Jenner is just being a attention whore IMO

Not to get into the yinyang of judgment one way or the other, this is a big human interest story and huge artings for the greedy media

But what’s the big deal?

The Western civilization has normalized this lifestyle and philosophy for decades.
The psychological establishment in the West says this isn’t a mental disorder.

I think folks better get use to this or move to Africa, parts of Asia, or the moon


The bigger story is the division of the country

There is no single lesbian, gay or bisexual lifestyle. Lesbians, gay men and bisexuals are diverse in the ways they lead their lives. The phrase "gay lifestyle" is used to denigrate lesbians, gay men, and bisexuals suggesting that their orientation is a choice and therefore can and should be "cured".

From the conspiracy angle we have this story getting big at the same time as the Duggar scandal.

The liberals are having conniption fits over what they allege is the hypocrisy of the Holy Duggar family running around shielding a child molester, and then you have the conservatives going crazy over the media hype of Jenner and the support of his lifestyle.

Meat for the lions or grist for the mill on both sides!


If one were looking at this from Mars they might think this is some kind of experiment in human folly going on with either the Devil, Illuminati, or even God laughing their assess off at the manipulation of all this stuff on the American psyche

Gay is not a "Lifestyle", just like 'Straight' is not a "Lifestyle"

I don't think people hate someone just because they don't "support them" but when slurs are being tossed around, and purposeful slandering, how is it qualified anything but?

Whenever I start thinking that humans are not so bad and most people just want to live and let live, I go read youtube comments or ATS political threads and am reminded that I should be weeping for humanity...

Jenner has been made a media pop icon by others and has been convinced -- maybe rightly -- that he is now the flag-bearer for the transsexuals of the world who didn't have one or not nearly one as famous. I think he might have agreed to a lot of the publicity more because of feeling he had a responsibility to be representative in a positive way, than because he just wanted attention, as some seem to think.

Sometimes I think that the media 'overkill' on certain topics is actually designed to create dissension and reaction as part of the overwhelm. Pound the drum hard enough and it makes a ton of people who normally would roll their eyes and move on, instead actually start to feel a little assaulted by how nobody will STFU about it. Non-religious people feel the same way when religion is suddenly in their face all the time even though much of the time it was nothing but some people doing their thing until media decided to use it like a club on everybody else.

All this overkill 'seems' like an 'agenda' when really it's just some person living their life who many someone-else's are pushing toward fame for money reasons. The real agenda is for TV people and magazine people to make money and internet sources to make clicks-likes-attention and it just so happens a lot of people who'd like to see more attention to the subject for personal reasons, notice it's finally getting some.

I suspect many people just do not care. If I were dating a man and he used to be a woman I would definitely want him to tell me (and I confess, that would probably end that interest very abruptly for me, but better he know that right up front than later I guess). Most people I know when they see/hear something like that go, "Whoa, really?!" and they look someone up and down and then they go, "What a trip." And then they move on -- and that's it. They don't walk around thinking about it, they don't carry a hyperactive prejudice against the person, there's a brief moment of "wow that's different" (which it is, statistically/experientially for most) and then it's over, so what. It isn't that they are so ok with it, so much as that frankly that person is just not important enough in their lives for them to have much concern about it.

But then there are people who do care and in the most negative and sometimes proactive way. Why, is beyond me. It's not like anybody is holding them down and making it happen to them or people they love. The amount of effort to become the other gender is so significant I seriously doubt anybody could do this on a whim.

I hope Jenner finds happiness in life. I hope whatever he is doing, brings whatever form of relief or rapport that others in that genre of experience benefit from.

I hope the news will then STFU about it so we can go back to resenting each other for things that actually matter, like fashion and hip size...

Its ignorant on your part not to understand that Lifestyle is: what car you prefer; truck or sport, food you like; Mexican or Sushi; Apt or house, country or city, suit or jeans.

Things you choose.

Has nothing to do with LGBT.

Your choice not to understand what Lifestyle actually means.

And everyone that keeps bringing those ignorant connections up within context of LGBTQ stores and topics


Kathryn Wynn is a lesbian and her past cohort in crime was Benjamin Levin, a pedophile. As I said before, these are the two "characters" who were writing and promoting the sex-ed curriculum for preteens (which included 'how to give consent'). Unfortunately, they may have painted the entire LGBT community with the same brush since the agenda because of the source of this program for kids.

Not at all pointless.

It's estimated Jenner could be worth as much as 500 million in the next decade.

Why do in private what you can do on camera and sell for profit? The Kardashian way


Well, IMHO, all idiots feeding off the idiots that watch them. This celebrity idolatry and 'famous for being famous' crap is getting old and tired. But I suppose as long as there is a sufficient quantity of weak minded individuals that will soak up any garbage spewed at them, this trend of wanton stupidity will continue.

One thing many people don’t understand regarding this issue and others is the pie theory.

The pie is cut up in small slices

Jenner may well be condemned here and there BUT

He has a slice of the pie population ardently behind him


When he goes online or watches TV (REGARDING THIS ISSUE) who do you think he watches, Fox News or MSNBC?

Unless he’s a masochist along with his transgender (TransJenner) he’s going to watch his followers on his pie chart not the detractors pie chart of the Rush Limbaugh’s or conservative commentators.


As long as he has followers who love him so much he had the biggest Twitter output in history he's got nothing to worry about


Its called America

The problem is they seem to want all the pie.

Thats what i class as the gay "agenda".

Not all gays of course but some it seems in the more militant ranks wont be happey untill everyone is waveing rainbow flags.

Why cant they just be like hetros and mind there own bloody buisness and stop trying to seek attention.

Im not stopping them doing whatever it is they want to do and few people in the west are.

Just get on with life and stop acting like drama queens.
