I am not using the "women" argument. The examples I gave, and LGBT, fall under the umbrella of inequality. They share commonality this way! The fact
you don't see the connection is intrinsic to the reason you don't view it as an issue to begin with.
The point is you cannot force your beliefs on another country.
What do you mean by "force"?
What I would want, and what I do, is encourage people to discuss it. Communication. Try to understand the moral implications and ramifications of the
actions that could be taken whether it's in support or in opposition. I believe in supporting it because I believe in equality and I believe they're
persecuted. You are free to argue. I hope you would! I also hope both of us would be open enough to consider each other's views. And by "you" I mean
anyone and everyone. Is that "forcing"? Is discussion frowned upon?
It doesn't matter whether people like it or not, you just have to accept it.
I vehemently, fundamentally, reject everything that sentence stands for
And I am more than willing to wager so do you! Given a different scenario.
Don't question, do what you're told.
Some countries do not agree with homosexuality.
There is a revelation O.o I already acknowledged and addressed that in my prior post.
What is this global strides crap?
We seem to differ in convictions on a foundational level. I believe in right and wrong moral practice, and it's our duty as a species to correct the
wrong regardless of geographical location. You look at the word "correct" in that sentence and assume the worst and something drastic. Just like you
assume the worst and something drastic when LGBT says things like "we want equality". I am talking about making peaceful strides, not militant. Active
and persistent yes! It's called communication and awareness.
You cannot force groups of people to do what you think is right. To them, its wrong.
Again with the "force". So much force this force that.... I don't think many LGBT supporters think they have Jedi mind powers. The ability to directly
instill beliefs. Apparently you do! Otherwise I think your concern is irrational... I mean seriously are you afraid I can force it in your head?? Are
you afraid it's contagious?? Or are you afraid I will attack you with physical violence?? What constitutes "force" ??
We are not talking about "force". Anything against ones will. We are trying to show why it's wrong and why you should believe it's wrong. And
subsequently vote with that understanding, and treat LGBT with dignity. That's not force, that's persuasion.
As much as you can put up an argument for homosexuals, the people against it can also put up an argument to why they do not accept it in their
Excellent. That's debate. Sounds good
What dont homosexuals get that everyone else does apart from marriage?
There have been many answers already in the thread. I guess you haven't been following?
Here is one of many
. In Russia they discriminate (rather harshly) against homosexuals kissing in public.
But you will of course have to specify a country for an appropriate response.
I watched your video in its entirety. Now if you will match mine in courtesy, I have one for you. Don't be put off by the title, it truly addresses
what both of us have mentioned. It's quite pertinent.
