I have enjoyedvwatching from the side lines, as a group who identify themselves with and possible part of the Gay or Lesbian community pound away at the opposing group of more conservative thinkers, those of course who have held a silent majority for ever so long. All the while, pounding at their adversaries for being " disallowing" or "non accepting" . I do find it humorous that while digging in for what appears to be long long overdue fight, they themselves have positioned themselves into the very same position that they are fighting against. Here, the conservative group wants to disallow this new opponent from " coming out" in an old traditional Grand March, and in doing so, the conservatives realized that the host of the event was not going to stand up to tradition and side with the " Old School" ways. So, the adversaries decided to go off by themselves and have their own old school event! That would seem a likely place to end this sad story, as true as it is. But, no, not this time, the "new Schoolers" have decided to become guilty of the very thing that they spoke out about in the first place! They are demanding that the departing adversaries not be allowed to " Do their own thing" which is exactly what THEY were upset about to begin with, I say, Let them all do their own thing...

It would in no way be the same and only someone ignorant would suggest otherwise. Simply put, it would be a diversion of the topic at hand because of your inability to make a real argument.

Actually you are the wrong one on that... I know your gonna say that color of skin is genetic, but yet you cannot conclude that sexual orientation is not genetic.. if you try then you know more then the entire scientific community times 10 (So don't try it). Secondly the effects of discrimination on a minority are the same no matter the cause of the discrimination, a fact that cannot be denied... So basically STFU

Whether someone claims he/she was born that way has nothing to do with the topic. Perhaps they are born with a proclivity for debauchery...I don't know nor do I care. The fact is they should not be acting on debased perversions. As far as the scientific community, I couldn't care less what so called scientists say either as they have an agenda and that agenda doesn't warrant the truth in their minds. It is not discriminatory to believe that homosexual practices are wrong no matter what you may think. The practice of homosexuality is not a normal behavior just as pedophilia, murder etc. are normal behavior. Perhaps you want to justify every vile practice there is. Just because there are those who realize that the practice of homosexually is a debased, immoral behavior doesn't mean they are discriminating a minority but instead are merely speaking the truth as they know it. If you and your gay friends don't like it then perhaps you and the other freaks should have stayed in the closet so as not to get your girlie feelings hurt.
