American Idol reached a milestone Wednesday night when the show welcomed its first officially openly gay contestant -- M.K. Nobilette -- to the Top 30. And Randy Jackson, who's now moved from being a judge on the show to being its "in-house mentor," says he's happy about that, but is surprised that it's taken this long.

You can't turn on a TV or pick up a newspaper without some kind of gay
crap being talked about. They think the more they bombard us with gay nonsense the more 'normal' and accepted it will become. They're wrong.

"KEEP YOUR DAMN SEXUAL PREFERENCES TO YOURSELF!!!" You mean like when you all try to pass State Constitutional Amendments about your sexual preference and you flaunt your sexual preference in every TV show, magazine and movie?

Well poster #1 and #3, you actively seek out the gay threads, so your little act of, "oh we are bombarded", "keep your preferences to yourself", "I'm so tired of hearingÂ…." is rather theatrical and so full of drama. Do you fan yourselves and flail your arms in the air? Poster #2 must have not been able to control herself, because her unladylike rant was deleted. Again, such drama!

I know just how posters 1, 3, and 6 feel. I suffer the same problems every single day at both fundamentalist christian and republican sites. I just wish I could figure out an easy way to avoid things that annoy me.

Yeah, people! Don't ever ever talk about who you love!

On Valentine's Day.

That's for straight people to talk about who THEY love.

Like they do every day.

You freeeks are laughable. I enjoy hearing your sexually sick whining.

Well, #6 couldn't control herself yet again. Those impulse issues are going to make her an even more lonely and bitter old maid.

Oh, yes, every time am introduced to someone or interview for a job or anything else, I say, "Of course, I am straight. A lot of people hate me for that but they'll just have to get over it." Can any of you gays see how ridiculous that would be?" BTW, I am convinced gays love to think of themselves as "hated" no matter how far from reality. Disagreeing with your political ambitions is not hating you.

So you want to oppress me politically, but you really love me? How wide is your stance? Because you sound an awful lot like former Senator Larry Craig ...

Hey stupid filth, obviously heterosexuals make their sexual orientation known in a million ways. A wife could easily be mentioned by a man in an interview setting or in any other context.

Everyone is assumed to be str8. Therefore, str8 people needn't indicate they are...usually.

Str8 people don't face pogroms because they're str8, you pos. They have no need to petition for equal rights.

But you know all this and are merely expressing your psycho sexual disturbances and your lack of education.

Can you see how ridiculous it is that gay people have to actually WORRY about what they say about themselves? People may not say this sort of thing in a job interview, but you seem to be saying that once they get the job, gay people must also avoid putting pictures of their loved ones on their desk, or wearing a wedding ring where someone might see it and ask about it.

If so many people WOULD stop hating others for such shallow reasons, this wouldn't be an issue. Gay people don't WANT to have the "political ambition" to be accepted, it would be much nicer if we could talk about our lives, just like anyone does, and have people say "cool, I'm glad you're happy with the person you've chosen".

But no, that's not good enough. We have to listen to "abomination!" and "perversion!" and "Satanic mentally-ill child molester!". If people were saying that to YOU every damned day, I guarantee you'd make an effort to dispel this crap and educate some narrow minds.

When is the last time you saw something like this in the news:
Michael Strahan, openly straight former football star..........

Why do you people find it necessary to flaunt your disorder?

Because it's not a disorder. Educate yourself. Or, keep talking out of your ass, and expect people to keep correcting you.

It is one of the most egregious disorders I know of. To try to convince people that it's not
is a joke and the joke's on you.

Sure thing, doctor. Just tell me all about your research, and I'm sure I'll understand.

What studies have you conducted? Where were they conducted? How large was your sample size? What kinds of controls did you have in place? What were your findings? How did the peer-review go? Where did you get published? What is your medical degree in? How long have you been licensed? What is your specialty field? Why does every medical and scientific body of knowledge on the planet disagree with you?

I think we all know who the joke is here.

Like we're not being bombarded with all the "hetero crap" on tv every day, especially this past week leading up to Valentine's day.

Better get used to it because the gays are here to stay!

How sad for you (but not surprising at all) that you have no one to say "I love you" to on Valentine's day.
