Most gays are not demanding you join the rainbow coalition and be inconsistent as to how rights are protected. Topix seems to have an unusually large number of commie Comrade gays who believe all force is good if it gives gays a temporary edge. There are millions of gays who disagree with these authoritarian Topix gays who can't stand all the petty bickering, name calling and insults the gays lodge against anyone who doesn't wave the rainbow flag.

Normal gays are quite happy to have you just ignore them.

Our resident authoritarian gays believe all discrimination against them is bad and all discrimination against those who discriminate is good. They say stay out of gay bars if you don't like how they are run, then they say bakers, florists and photographers should be forced to cater gay weddings. There is no consistency. They believe in freedom for themselves and slavery for anyone who would offend them. Where in the Constitution does it say there is a right not to be offended?

Of course discrimination is wrong, that is not an issue the issue is do we want the government passing laws making things worse by forcing people to do things they do not want to do.

""""" The story is actually two years old, but it couldnít be more timely.
New Mexico Gov. Suana Martinez believes that marriage is a relationship between a man and a woman. Gov. Martinez also needs haircuts.
But two years ago, her hair stylist, Antonio Darden, said that he would refuse to cut the Governorís hair as long as she continues to support the natural and historical understanding of marriage.
According to Darden,ďItís just equality, dignity for everyone. Everybody should be allowed the right to be together.Ē
Why is it that you know about the florists, photographers, and bakeries who didnít want to be part of same-sex weddings but you donít know about the stylist who refused to cut the Governorís hair?
Instead of filing a lawsuit, Gov. Martinez simply found someone else to cut her hair.
Hopefully, all the gay hairstylists will defend the rights of photographers, florists, and bakeries not to bake cakes for their same-sex ďweddingĒ, otherwise they might one day find themselves being forced to cut the Governor of New Mexicoís hair.
Fair is fair."""" "

<quoted text> no it's not a choice. it's a choice to d rive a car or a truck. do u really think ppl would choose a lifestyle that would cause ppl to ridicule them and in extreme cases commit suicide bc of various reasons over being gay. You need to educate yourself on this, I am not gay. I have a brother who is and knew from a very early age he was gay..
Yes I do.

It's the same as those freaks that tattoo every inch of their bodies or put piercings all over themselves and then wonder why people are staring at them.

Gays want attention, then, when they get it, they bitch and moan that they're being picked on and singled out.

So which is it? Do the gays expect special treatment or do they want to be left alone and keep to themselves like they claim?

Either way, the gays are the ones drawing attention to themselves. Which, btw, isn't necessary - everyone can clearly see who's gay and who isn't.

And since most gays are liberal too, yes they would choose the lifestyle that will get them the most 'victim' points because they're that insane.

You can't talk about gays anymore than you can talk about blacks or women or Hispanics. Some gays want attention and others want to be left alone. Some gays are drawing attention to gay issues, but not all gays. You want to condemn the gays who want to be left alone because of the in your face vocal gays who are unreasonable and inconsistent. The vast majority of gays are not commies like here in Topix.

I am pretty sure reverend that your homosexual. You have touched every topic about gay homosexuality that I've ever seen. And you flood each one of these topics. Either admit that you're homosexual or start to practice what you preach.

So you're saying I shouldn't condemn a group for the actions of a few?

So you libs shouldn't condemn ALL christians just because of the beliefs of a few, just like they shouldn't accuse all conservatives of being "racists" for not agreeing with "the annointed one".

And blacks shouldn't assume ALL white people were slave owners, just like not all blacks are the descendants of slaves.

You libs need to practice what you preach.

Fuck off hypocrite.

It's a choice to be gay. A coworker said to me today to try it and I would like it. It's a choice obviously. This was said when when I said I have bad luck with trucks, copying machines, and men. Why would I need to try something if I wasn't "born" gay?
I just don't understand . Gross !!!!!!!!!! but I would never chose to rob a bank , steal a car, lick someone's butt . Stick my tongue in someone's nose. But that's just me . Why don't they try this ????

I am pretty tired of all this gay crap! We do not strut around saying--look at me I am straight. No, we go about our business and live and let live.You gays are so adamant about everyone knowing and accepting your gayness. I am sick of you people shoving it in our face. Just go away and live however you want. I believe that people who have businesses should be able to say who,what, where and when we can do what we want with our business. D--- sick and tired of the government telling us what we can and can not do! You go Arizona!

It's pretty much cut and dried. A gay or lesbian simply goes into an establishment with a friend of the opposite sex. The business will take one look and decide the customer is not gay. End of story.
