I respect your position and thank you for your brutal honesty.<quoted text>
You tell that to the people that were picked out and killed by others all because they were gay, like Matthew Shepard. You tell that to the teenagers that were bullied everyday in school.*Raises hand* Teenage suicide is one of the leading killers of teenagers behind MVAs.(If you'd like I can give you URL to statistics) Gay teenagers make up majority of those suicide numbers. This discrimination is all because of somthing that is NOT a choice.
I knew since I was five years old that I was different from my two other brothers. I knew that I didn't meet majority norms. So when people say it's a choice, really? How much of a choice is it when it's not something I woke up one day and decided, "Hey I think I wanna be discriminated against today". I grew up in a conservative baptist home. I know what the bible says about homosexuality. It was preached to me throughout my whole life. I read leviticus over and over.
I didn't come out to my parents until I was twenty, and in college out of fear of how cut off my parents will go. Thank God I have parents that love me no matter what. You want to talk about the hardest thing to do. Trust me if it was easy as turn my gay switch on and off , don't you think I would already so I wouldn't have to face my parents? So even though we're not getting casinos, or slaved; everyday is a war. A war to be accepted, not be bullied, not to be judge... just to be equal.
