I agree. That and gay guilt brought on people gotta walk on egg shells. I see a lot of people born gay or whatever but then I see trends of rebellious children like Cher's daughter now son, Martha Stewart's daughter...Last but not least Dick Cheney's daughter. It's like kids with big personality big job parents say oh yeah mom, dad I'll show you I'll go gay! I just don't know what to make of it besides each circumstance is different.
Does anyone find it interesting that more men are gay then women?
I forgot the stars but it's was roughly 30% difference published buy the Lesbian Gay Alliance.
I apologize now if I hurt your feelings but growing up I watched kids who were abused start to abuse their kids when they had em or alcoholism being passed down as a learned behavior. If children of same sec marriage start to be gay in large numbers then what? They were born that way? Or raised that way? Either way everyone is so scared to offend it's become offensive !
By screaming that gays only make 5% of the population, is railing against the very process that this country was founded on, the ability of the %5, even 3% or 1.5%, to be heard.

No, i wasn't with anyone, i wasn't "Holding Hands" *Shock* i wasn't walking around in hot pants, i wasn't making a scene. i was told that i was making people feel uncomfortable and i should leave, even though i was shopping, even though i was spending my money there, i was told to leave.. that kind of thing is not a one time occurrence.
does everyone face that? no, but do straight people? rarely, and a lot less than Gay people.
WOW, are you guys kidding me? Do you realize how ridiculous you sound? You sound just like the bigots that said women should not be able to vote and that black people should not have rights. They only reason we hear about homosexuals is because they don't have the same civil rights that strait people have had for eons. If they could get married and enjoy the same benefits that we have all had then you would not hear a peep from them. just because they are a minority in a country full of yayhoo's does not deny them to be just as happy or miserable as married straight people. I grew up in Alabama and was raised a southern baptist. I was raised to hate. Logically that just does not make sense to me. I am no longer religious and care not to associate myself with that load of crap. I however do feel that gay marriage should be kept out of the church because with christian beliefs, it has no place there. However, they should be able to marry on a civil level.
Is this who you are? Because that who you sound like.

This has been bugging me for quite awhile.
I get it. Some people are Gay. I really am happy you can be with who you want.
But, quit shoving it down our throats. You are 5% of the population.
How many gay people are there in the United States? The Williams Institute at the UCLA School of Law, a sexual orientation law and public policy think tank, estimates that 9 million (about 3.8%) of Americans identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender (2011). The institute also found that bisexuals make up 1.8% of the population, while 1.7% are gay or lesbian. Transgender adults make up 0.3% of the population.
I have always loved my Gay Friends. They are not militant. But this whole LGBT?
Live your life. Why live your life constantly being identified by your sexuality?
I am not speaking about all Gay people. Just the small army of militant Gays.
Stop it......End Rant.
Don't know if you noticed but a majority of gays are obsessed with attention seeking behavior and in fact if you got to know them it would appear that gaining attention is the reason many chose that lifestyle. I don't think they will ever stop pushing an offensive agenda on the rest of the population becuase their primary goal in life is to stay the center of attention and do whatever they want, and they want to be worshiped.
