15. That is a disgusting position to take.
I don't know if you are black or not, but you seem to be taking up the mantle for those who have that sentiment. Will you not be happy until all of the horrors you just described befall the gay community?
I'm guessing you've never heard of gay-bashing? And I don't mean verbals slurs, which are bad enough. I mean a couple walking down the street suddenly being met with homophobes bearing baseball bats? Gay establishments being raided by police, who then beat and arrest the patrons?
And then there's poor Matthew Shepherd, beaten, tied to a fence and left to die - and the hundred of thousands ('m sure) just like him that go unreported?
Ever hear about upstanding citizens being denied the right to lead a Boy Scout troop, teach a class, or have anything to do with a children's group for fear that molestation will surely occur? Ever hear of decorated soldiers and interpreters being losing their careers for being gay?
Ever hear of a person not being able to visit their dying loved one in the hospital because they're gay, and not allowed to marry?

I've had enough of people with your attitude. Everyone, EVERYONE deserves equal rights - why the fuck isn't that obvious?????????????
