Grady; after reading your first paragraph I thought, okay, here's an intelligent guy, he might give me a good argument as to why he thinks I'm
I do LOVE
a good argument.
I'm sorry to say I'm disappointed.
All you had for your next four paragraphs was the desperate, and I mean desperate
cliché that the hardcore anti gay people come out with time
after time, that I'm sure, if you actually looked at it logically, you would see for the fallacy it is.
First of, both hetrosexual realtionships and homosexual realtionships can go wrong and be abusive, neither is perfect, and neither should be expected
to be so.
The idea that supporting rights for gay people will lead to people supporting rights for paedophiles and people that partake in incest and bestiality
is ludicrous for one very simple reason.
A normal gay relationship, like any normal heterosexual relationship is a mutually agreed on relationship between two consenting adults
are completely free to make their own decisions.
Both child abuse and bestiality are not consensual, and never will be which is why they will never be accepted. Both involve someone taking advantage
of another. That is not acceptable in any logical beings book.
That is a very, very VERY
large difference that you choose to ignore.
Grown men taking advantage of young boys is still child abuse, gay or not, just as the same applies to abuse of young girls. Some 'opponents' (to
put it lightly) to gay rights put forward the ludicrious notion that gay men are more likely to be paedophiles than straight men. To even allude to
such crude propaganda, something so obviously born from a cradle of hatred only makes even more of a mockery of your argument.
As for incest, incest is incest, no matter the sexual orientation of those involved. Not much explanation needed there.
Unless you are suggesting some kind of inherited and unavoidable perversion due solely to sexuality, which I wouldn’t be surprised if you are, you
Oh, and i'm not gay. As if it matters, though to you I suppose it does.
Just a guy that thinks that everyone should have the same rights as everyone else. Call me old fashioned if you will.
