Response to sikorsky (Reply #19)

24. Not sure I fully understand your point...

but my understanding of your last paragraph is, you attempt to project a public image
that will make those who would tend to be homophobic more comfortable. Is that what
you are expressing by stating "I can't think of any way to stop them except
by just disappearing any perceived excuses for them.?"

Speaking personally, if I have a problem with PDA's, how someone is dressed, anything
they are entitled to do that is constitutional, enhances their life and makes them happy,
that is my problem. At that point I would need to self check and question within my own
mind why I'm judging that particular person. The person(s) I may be judging have no
responsibility to make me more comfortable with who they innately are.

I have a very hard time tolerating republicans especially when they are justifying their
politics. I will always have that problem and when dealing with them try to stick to some
common ground regardless how insufferable they are. But even in that case it's my issue
and their right to believe what they want. I'm entitled to promote and work to accomplish
my own agenda keeping in mind they have the same right.

I guess I'm trying to say is, you shouldn't have to "disappear any perceived excuses for them."
