Where are the trolls now to say that gay people aren't discriminated against?
They'll probably say it's a hoax, as they do with all other instances of gay bashing.

This sounds just like the homophobic jerks that populate our country from coat to cost. And it seems like one thing they all have in common is a lack of a command of the English language,—a lack of education. Yes, ignorant rednecks are once again responsible for this type of behavior. While I am not saying all ignorant rednecks follow suit, it seems like many people who do engage in this anti-gay aggressive behavior fall into that category.

One does not have to be smart or highly educated to live and let live. It only takes common sense to know that we should treat others as we wish to be treated ourselves. That is a courtesy and a responsibility we all have as citizens trying to live and work together in this country. But the lack of respect for another human being is rampant in our society and that is not attached to any level of education or income. I mean it even happens with assholes during Presidential debates.

AA teaches its members that “acceptance” is the key to all of “my” problems and I believe that is true. Perhaps more than just drunks should buy a copy of The Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous (the organization’s official text and program) and learn about living “life on life's terms”.

Sadly, studies have shown that the less educated one is, the less accepting of different human traits one will be.
Live and let live is a great rule to live by, besides allowing people to harm others. Though this does not apply with gay individuals for they aren't harming anyone, so why all the hate? Why all the discrimination?

Why should people give a $#!+ just because some queer had something go wrong because of the choices he made for himself?

Boo effin hoo.

Why should we care if you're a sad little fat man crying about how people are going to get equal rights eventually. Just because your hygiene is horrible, doesn't mean you can't shower.

Yes you are a troll that hangs out constantly in this forum so you can get off on throwing out your trash comments. Go back to your "jailbait girls" site. We really don't care about your input here. Maybe go socialize outside today?

He claims he is married, but how he can have any quality time with a spouse is beyond me. He posts on the gay threads 24/7. Some satisfying straight marriage he has!!
