I'm not going to ever call someone Xer, but gays deserve to be happy and treated well. Same with transgender people.
Right wing straight white gun owner for gays here. Are they Americans? Yeah? STFU. You like your rights? Then you best stick up for theirs.
I don't get the weird stuff either, but go for it if you don't hurt anyone.

When something is constantly thrown in my face as something I SHOULD acknowledge and praise people for, well you will get the exact OPPOSITE reaction from me.
Good, GOOD FOR THE LGBT crowd. Continue to put yourself in the spotlight.
Maybe one day people will realize that putting yourself out there for everyone in the world to criticize and judge makes you much more susceptible to face backlash by the very thing you are promoting.
Sorry if this comes off as harsh, but think of it this way, when a bunch of white males get together and celebrate being a white male with beliefs they are called nazis.
You are LGBT? Cool. I don't need to know that. Just like you don't need to know about my life.

This seems to be the general feeling, from the posts I read-

When I'll say that I'm proud to be white - I'm a racist,
When I'll say that I'm proud to be hetero - I'm homophobe,
When I'll say that I'm proud to be Christian - I'm disrespectful fanatic,
When I'll say that I'm proud of my country - I'm xenophobe,
When I'll say that I'm proud to be gay - I'm hero... Why being normal is stigmatized?

be proud of something you have done and achieved and not of a feature which has been given to you by nature or society - there is nothing to be proud about that. The same way most gay people are not proud being gay (as it hasn't been an achievement or a choice), they just want to be themselves.

(edited) I hate how this PC culture/agenda is being pushed down our throats, can't even view videos in peace these days without some video being plastered all over YouTube talking about fairy tale genders.
It gets very confusing. Do they want us all to be friends and be all in the same group: humans who believe freedom is precious? Or do they hate us and want nothing to do with us? Or what?

This is 2016, you would think that the human race would be past these petty things by now. This is the year of the hashtag.

Problem is that you're failing to see the bigger picture..
It's FAR more than petty arguing about people disagreeing with their own beliefs. The entirety of the "social justice" movement is cancer, and it is destroying western/first world society, as we know it.
All it takes is a loud minority, to shame governments into giving them their way....and it is the rest of us who hafta pay the price.
