The LBGT farce is no different than schizophrenia or alcoholism. It's a genetic malfuntion that can be controlled or cured.

Research by reputable scientists has shown that people inclined to make homophobic comments are most likely self-loathing homosexuals (even if you do pull the bible card). This is true for the bullies that harass LGBT teens and it is true for the bullies leaving comments at the end of an article in the Herald. To "moral word" and "Won Hung Lo": You clearly have some fascination with the LGBT world or you wouldn't have read the article. Be as brave as Ms. Valadao and accept your own homosexual feelings and move on. The fact that you took the time to leave these (absurd) comments shows that you are desperately grasping at any put down your simple minds will conjure. We see through your efforts to deflect attention away from yourselves. Reasonable people condemn your comments, and feel sad for you self-loathing.

So what you are say is that if I don't agree with you, deep down I am really feeling insecure and really do agree with you is that what you are telling me.

Yep. Look at Ted Haggard, Larry Craig, and Eddie Long. Even better, here's a study that confirms it.

"Both groups exhibited increases in penile circumference to the heterosexual and female homosexual videos. Only the homophobic men showed an increase in penile erection to male homosexual stimuli."

Homophobia is so gay.

When a person is on the front page of the Monterey Herald talking about their "sexuality" It becomes the everyone's business. Yet another naive college student used by the left's money and propaganda machine.

You can see one tactic taught by the militant gay groups in play here in the comments, people who ONLY define themselves by who and how they have sex, attempt to limit the argument by saying "you people who don't agree with us are are overly obsessed with who and how we have sex!"

So every heterosexual who disagrees with your chosen lifestyle and tells you what they really think is Homophobic? a closet homosexual? Whatever you got to tell yourself.

Then you link to an abstract of a non-peer reviewed study done on a sample of 60 people? Guess that's all the proof needed by the Professional Homosexuals.

Obviously not every homophobic douche is gay. Most of them are just really stupid and immature, but there is definitely a pattern and it definitely repeats itself. Ted Haggard, Larry Craig, Eddie Long, George Rekers, all of them are extremely homophobic and all of them have been busted having gay sex. Those are just the ones I know off the top of my head. I'm sure there are countless others.

Then you see a study like that and it really makes you question the sexuality of homophobes. I mean, it's kind of the perfect cover for someone who is insecure with their sexuality, isn't it? Act like you totally hate gay people so no one thinks that you're gay.

Food for thought.

Does that mean if I had a dream and kill someone in it, does that mean I am a killer.

Go read a book, you ignoramous.

Or, if that's too much trouble, you have a computer. Instead of using it to broadcast evidence of how clueless you are about the subject at hand, try using it to learn the facts. Google is your friend.

One more hint, because I suspect you are ill equipped to see the difference - any "scientific" organization, like the American College of Pediatricians (ACP) or the National Association for research and Treatment of Homosexuality (NARTH) that uses words like "moral" or "God" when presenting their so called "facts," isn't really scientific at all. They are just an attempt to hoodwink ignorant and uneducated dupes into thinking they know what they are talking about so their ultimate agenda is achieved. Stay away from them unless you want to be duped as well.

You have no idea what you are talking about. I know Nicole and she is incredibly nice, funny and attractive. And besides, being gay isn't a choice, which you allude to in your post. Why would someone choose to be a second class citizen? Why would someone choose to make their lives harder and have ignorant people like you hate them? It's easy, they wouldn't. You don't know how many gay people try to be straight but fail because that is just not who they are.

So why is she trying to draw attention to her situation? Trolling for like-minded females?

Somehow, I think you've missed the point. This is a newspaper article reporting on the recent suicides of troubled teens and young adults. Regardless of their sexual preference, these human beings feel left out and confused and need guidance, not judgement. This group, Out and About, serves one goal, and that is to accept all people and give them a safe place to feel wanted and respected. Your insensitive remarks just fuel the narrow minded subjugation of your fellow man.

The fact that anyone would take the time to post hateful comments on an article geared for showing young adults, who often find themselves bullied and judged, that there is a safe place to feel welcomed only reiterates the meaning behind Jane Lee's words.

By judging those who are gay, lesbian. bisexual or transgender, you are only fueling discrimination on all fronts. Showing that it is okay to put down certain groups, races, or genders etc. What you are saying is this: All are created equal, but some are more equal than others.

We are all human beings, we all deserve the right to live a happy life. No matter our gender, sexual orientation, race, background.

In the future, before you make an ill-conceived judgment towards another human being - who has in no way affected your own right to happiness - think about your own life, and how you would feel if you were being attacked for something you had no control over - or better yet, imagine a loved one.

Imagine your mother, father, sibling, son, or daughter being bullied, attacked, or even killed for the person they are. it would be heartbreaking.

Equality is equality. No ifs, ands or buts.

Did you even read the article? She is trying to speak out against bullying and suicides because there has been an increase in suicides over the last few months for LGBT youth. She is being extremely brave and putting herself out there to show people that it does get better and that there are support systems out there, such as Out and About, that can help people through a tough time. Why don't you educate yourself a little more before spewing such hate about someone that you don't even know.
