I consider myself to be somewhat open-minded. But, while driving down Highland Ave., I saw two guys, in their early twenties, strolling along holding hands. I was shocked. My kids were in the car with me. I know that in the large cities that being gay is more accepted and is very much in the open, but this is Carrollton. I know alot of gays that live here, but they are somewhat private and wonderful people. I also know of many guys that think that getting high or drunk and having sex with another guy is just for fun, but "not gay." Their wives/girlfriends have no clue. Sadly, they are usually the hottttt guys who no one would ever expect.

Ok, they were just holding hands? And you have a problem with that? Now if they are making out on the street that is way different, I don't even want to see heterosexual couples make out in public, its trashy. But holding hands? Give me a break. You had your kids in the car, are you afraid they will be gay bc they saw this? That is a very dumb and close minded view. I would be more worried about the very straight sign in front of racers facing interstate that says "hot wet girls inside", ill take explaining a gay couple holding hands to my kids any day over he meaning of that sign.
Gays suck literally

LOVE IS LOVE NO MATTER THEIR SEX!!!!!!!!!! this post pisses me off. Like the other person said I would rather explain to my son 2 guys holding hands than a sigh in front of racers.
Being Gay doesn't "rub off" or is not a sickness.

I seen them kissing on 7th street the other night and my 7yr old girl was in the car with me, and asked why 2 boys were kissing, so give me a break! it's more then walking around holding hands going on seen that with my own eyes, if they want to do that then they need to do it behind closed doors not in front of my children!

I am shocked people are acting and speaking this way. If I had a son, I would never HOPE that he waS gay. No one does. But I love him, so I would accept it. Being gay is a difficult life, and I truly believe people do not choose to be that way, they just are. And its people like this who make that life even harder. Grow up, Wake up, Educate yourself, and start being respectful of others. Im shocked and sickened ppl still speak like this.

I also want to say before people start spouting off about religion. God does say a man and a man is wrong, however he says he is the only judge, so let him judge and in the meantime "love thy neighbor"

SO it is ok if your driving down the road with your kids in the car and their is a male and female making out....ALL of you backwards hiding in the dark people need to grow the hell up. People love each other.
By the way do you correct your daughter when her and her little girl friend hold hands and giggle? Or do you force the friends of your children who may spend a night to sleep on the couch because OMG same sex can not sleep in the same bed.
You people need to just stop and let it be. If you dont agree then keep it to yourself...teach your children your way of life and hope they turn out fine. But I can almost bet that if your child came home in love with the same sex you would disown them.

And read my comment. If they were making out that's trashy, for heterosexual or homosexual. But you just said holding hands. Holding hands I see nothing wrong with. Take the chance and explain to your kids, that not everyone in this world is the same. If you don't agree with it, share that with your children as well. But don't turn them into homophobic people.

It's our job to get em to wake up
Obviously
God wants them to stop, if we don't tell em noone will.
It's disgusting the reasonall them turn gay is cuz they can't get the opposite sex to like em cuz they r nasty or something. They need to grow up and wait for the right one to come instead o turning queer.

I saw Barry turner from WalMart with a man and his wife doesn't mind so why would it bother anyone else if he is gay? God will judge us all at some point for our sins so let it go and let them be happy. Maybe he takes him home and everyone gets a turn. Don't care, dont mind and doesn't bother me as long as he don't hit on me.

You know this shit really pisses me off. So what there is a gay couple who is proud of who they are. Yes there are other gay couples who hide the fact that they are gay...hmm I wonder why that is!!! Could it be the fact of small minded people. Here is they way everyone should look at this....to each their own...as long as they don't push their views on you why should you push your views on them. You can teach your children that in the eyes of God being gay is a sin. You can teach your children that it is not what you believe in but do not tell other people how to live their lives. And as far as having to explain to children about gay people...who would you rather teach this to them...yourself or others in the world? Is this how you would act if one day your child comes to you and tells you that he/she is gay? I surely hope not. I hope you would be a little more accepting of your child than you are of some total strangers.

I cannot believe this post. It saddens me that some people in Carrollton are still living in the stone ages. Whose business is it anyway ?? Hell people.... look at what the majority of heterosexuals have done to the "sacred" institution of marriage. And religion... just save it !!! Most likely the time that religion crosses your stinking drug coated tongue is ON TOPIX !!! I have many gay friends that live in Carrollton, and they are happy. They have educations, class, style, good looks, the nicest homes, and they bother no one. Could it be jealousy or simple ignorance ?? When a person lives with a limited, closed mind, then it is their loss. Throughout my life, I have found that closed minded people live a limited, dark world. They hate and bash anyone that they cannot control , nor manipulate. They bash anyone/anything that is different. It may be lack of intelligence. As one post mentioned... it's Hollywood's fault or MTV. Seriously ???? It is just sad that those gays in Hollywood and on MTV are gorgeous, rich, more friends and luxuries than imaginable. But, I bet they lay in bed at night and think to themselves, " I wonder why that dentally challenged, broke ass, out of shape, closed -minded, in-bred hillbilly in Carrollton, Ky. does not like me?" NOT !!!!!!!!!! You are not going to control the gays. It is not their choice to be gay. They are normal people like everyone else. Before you begin explaining the trials and tribulations of gays, please stop and think..... when was the last time you were gay and had to live the lifestyle ???? Most gays have tried to live the straight lifestyle, but could not. That is why it is called being in the "closet." Just leave them alone. And, the comment... they date the same sex because the opposite won't have them ???? Most gay men have the most beautiful female friends than anyone. Women love gay men as they know they are trustworthy, and can trust that they do not have alterior motifs. I am an expert at having a loser offer me a $1.75 Bud Light in the hopes that he could flop his nasty, out of shape, odor reaking, penile challenged body against me for the "greatest two minutes" of my life, LOL. Again---- NOT !!!!!!!! My friends and I laugh at you !! Thank you, but no thank you- I will stick with my gay friends. I can trust them, they make me laugh, they are loyal, plus they keep me aware of the latest styles, and keep my home like a magazine. With that being said.... please by all means.... keep hating them !!! My girlfriends, and I, will keep them all TO OURSELVES !!!!! Like Kathy Griffin says, " They are our gays- not yours !!!!" In fact, most all women in Hollywood say that, LOL.
Big heart

As a gay woman living in Carrollton, this post really amazes me. I have children who I have raise not to judge anyone for any reason. They were sat down at a when they were younger and OPENLY talked to about being gay and what it meant. They have grown into strong teenagers who are not gay who love their parents no matter what. So no being gay does not rub off. You are who you are and Love how you Love. One person is no better than another no matter what sexual preference they have. It is all about being honest. I was told that my kids would grow up and hate me because of my being gay. But that is far from the truth. Because before anything else I am a great parent. That is my first priority.. Being Mom has always come first, I just happen to be a Mom who is gay...
