17. Don't try to shift this towards a political ideology debate

There are outright assholes and homophobes both in the left and the right. To say that the left does this and that as if everybody in it has the exact same opinions and ideas is an dumb viewpoint to have. Carreńo himself is considered part of this "leftist" party that you so avidly admire, and is one of the most outspoken deputies of the PSUV. As you apparently can't seem to fathom, being a decent human being and respecting LGBT rights has abso-fucking-lutely nothing to do with sociopolitical ideologies. There are people who consider themselves "rightists" who feel that the LGBT community should enjoy the same rights as heterosexuals, just like there are people who consider themselves "leftists" who thing that homosexuality is an abomination. Sure, it might seem now that the gay bashing comes mostly from the right because most of their leadership is very religious and conservative, but hey, now look at good ol' Russia with their new anti-gay legislation that they've been getting a LOT of crap for, and they are such GREAT pals of the Venezuelan regime, and Maduro doesn't even seem to acknowledge this new legislation now, does he? Please do try to act more mature, you're making yourself look more and more foolish with each post you put up.
