Nah actually it's cool man. My best friend was in Iraq and he always tells me "you'd never understand what it's like." I totally see where you're coming from, and honestly if I was in your shoes I probably would have said a lot worse, lol.
I feel kind of bad for getting you mad, to tell you the truth. I have great respect for you for having the guts to join the military. Seriously, I mean it, you and your sister deserve a lot more respect in the media than a certain unmentionable dead celebrity does.
I think it's a classic case of arguing for the sake of arguing, and I'm kind of in need of a cigarette anyway. Hey it was fun man.
I apologize, and really I have had to deal with homosexuals on a daily basis in some of my jobs, and I just learn to get along with them and try not to discuss their lifestyle. The vast majority of them are decent people that just want peace and quiet, and want to enjoy life. I just get really mad when things happen like Mrs. California losing her crown for having an opinion that the media disagrees with.
Goodnight, and sorry again.

Equal rights - absolutely, we are all human beings.
However, for those who say that being gay is natural because there are animals that exhibit homosexual tendencies, I have to say you are wrong. For what reason would any species develop a homosexual individual? It goes against the entire purpose of any living thing, be it animal or plant - to procreate. Thus, the reason we have homosexuals of any species is simple. It is likely caused by a chemical imbalance at birth, much like people with split personalities and bipolar disorders. Being gay is only natural in that it is naturally-occuring. It is not a beneficial trait which would benefit the survival of any species.

Okay...2 cents coming.
I am amazed that this whole gay thing has been such a huge debate.
First we have anit-sexual descrimination laws in this country.
This means you can not discrimnate agaisnt someone based on their sex.
To deny a marriage license to a gay couple because one of them is not a differant sex is sexual descrimination pure and simple.
By trying to define marriage and pass laws about same sex marriage is a violation of church and state and a violation of the sexual discrimnation laws. Why else would you be against two people getting married except if it was not a sin in your religion?
Teachers Unions and Churches are spending millions to promote anti-gay mariage laws. This is promoting sexual discrimination. They need their tax exempt status removed, period.
That being said.....
Now personally I think these people are very confused individuals. If you like women why are you dating a woman that acts like a man. If you like men why are dating men that act like women. These poeple are very confused individuals. Also the way they are so proud to be gay is very wierd. Why is it necessary to flaunt your sexuality to everyone. I am proud to be American but I don't tell everyone I meet and shout it from rooftops.
However, we can not deny them a marriage license without violating our sexual descrimination laws. No debates, no laws, no parades, this is the law and rights should be protected weather you like it or not.

Yes it is wrong if a gay man thinks he is better than a straight man...I know because being straight I have watched my straight brethren talk trash, laugh at, abuse, torture and murder gay men all over the place

Most gay men look like eveyone else. Your confusing normal gay men with flamers. You got the tops and the bottoms. As for equality your missing the point. Let me put it this way. Straights get to go visit there wives and lovers in the hospital if there sick or dying. Gays don't get to do that under the current laws. So how would you like it if someone told you straight folk you can't visit your dying lover. YOU BE UP IN ARMS, yelling, etc. Thats the simple equality gays/lesbians do not get in the world today. Get your facts right before you start blabbing hate.
As for having kids, thats up to you straight folk. What you never heard of RUBBERS. Your the ones over populating the planet.
You straights get to have kids, raise them pay for everything from 1 to 18 etc. You lose all your hair and get fat, grey. I'll pass on that.
And you sir are insensitive, you probably even like to hit women.
As for killing gays. Heck humans have been killing each other since the beginning of time. Ive personaly done the deed when I spent 15 years in the military. As a gay officer. So don't give me any of your hate crap. Cause not all gay men are wimpy. If I found you Id rip out your liver through your left nostril, and make you run home to your moma. For saying what youve said.
Never ever think all gay men are wimps. You sir have alot of learn.
