“Opposing Evil, Helping Good”

EVERYWHERE!!!

I can't get the article to do for me, but this looks awesome! I wanna see Same-Sex Marriage legalized EVERYWHERE!

It's on it's way! Hell, Texas recently legalized it (If you can believe that!) Well it was a court ruling. Which is cool, in fact what I wanna see is like a "Roe v. Wade" kinda thing. Making it so that all 50 states MUST allow it!!!

I don't know what state (or country) this is about, but I like it.

It technically doesn't affect me directly. I'm one of the straitest people in existence. In fact I'm one of the few people who is not bisexual at all. Most people are somewhat bisexual (if that's news to anyone). They don't always identify, or "acknowledge" it, but most are.


However, as anyone with a brain knows, if "they" (the "Powers That Be") will do something lame to someone else, they'll do the same thing to me, when they get the chance. Lame is as lame does. People who take rights away from someone else, will do the same to you. Why would they not? It's a no-brainer!!!

Plus I have lots of friends and acquaintances who are gay, bi, transgendered, etc., and quite frankly they deserve better then that. They are good people who don't deserve that crap! They deserve equal rights, like everyone else!

Anyway, I like this. These are the kinds of stories I like (even though I couldn't read the article, lol... I'll try it again later...) Next I wanna see one that says "Gay Marriage Legalized Throughout The United States" :)

Oh TY :) I still can't get the article to load. It's probably my browser. I had trouble with another article, on another forum (of this site) earlier.

I actually thought most of the UK already had it. I guess I was probably thinking of civil unions (which is... better than nothing, but not the same thing).

I know the UK has traditionally been good (or at least better than the US) on most Gay Rights issues. Well, not "always" though! In the early 1950s their was a dude named Alan Turing who... let's just say without him we probably wouldn't have computers as we know them. In fact without him, we'd probably all be speaking German ;) Yet all that the British Government could focus on was his sexual orientation. So they... either killed him or drove him to suicide (accounts vary).

Of course that was the early 50s. The Gay Liberation Movement (or "Gay Rights Movement" if you prefer) didn't really start until the late 60s (I believe the official start was 1970, although it had been building for a while...)

Then throughout the 70s things got better, as far as rights for LGBT persons. However, then came the early 80s and the HIV epidemic. Of course the one thing some people didn't (and still don't, in some cases) realize, is that all you have to do is use a condom (and use it CORRECTLY), gay or strait. That's all you have to do :)


Anyway TY so much for that info! I probably need to clear my browser's cookies and cache.
