A quick look at history shows that a population will embrace bias, if legally allowed to do so: The Numemberg Laws of 1935 in Nazi Germany opened the floodgates for nascent anti-Semitism and laid the groundwork for the Holocaust, the nearly 100 years of Jim Crow legislation in the United States reduced African-Americans to a persecuted, and even ...

No one was fired for being gay. If you keep it in the closet and do not spout homosexual propaganda...

A teacher's sex life simply does not belong in the classroom.

Oh, you're right, I've NEVER seen a teacher with a photo of a loved one on their desk, or heard about the fun things a teacher did over the weekend with their significant other. EVER. Verboten!

The problem is, the Draconian laws that Russia is enacting would make even these simple expressions of life into "propaganda". Gay teachers will have to be ABSOLUTELY SILENT about every aspect of their private lives, or they risk straying into this "propaganda" area. Some Russian legislators are now pushing laws which would actually seize children from their parents, if those parents are gay. No "spouting propaganda" necessary, just the police coming to take biologically-born children away from their parents. I suppose you have some rationale to justify THAT?

These laws muzzle gay people from being able to talk about their personal lives in any way. I can talk about my partner, and the movies we've watched together, the puzzles we've put together, or the places we've visited, WITHOUT saying one word about our sex lives, even to children. Gay people do MORE than just have sex, you know.

These laws only dehumanize gay people, and the people who support them WANT THAT TO HAPPEN.

Any teacher that promotes, encourages or even talks about homosexuality should be fired. Children do not need to know anything about sexual deviance.

That's because deep down you are a traitor and would rather take the rights away from all citizens. A homofascist is what you are and you will be exposed.

So, then you'd eliminate Michelangelo, Walt Whitman, President James Buchanan, King James I, Peter the Great, Alexander the Great, Clara Barton. And those are just for starters.

In short, get a clue, and grow UP.

You are the one imagining deviance. Why?

And how in the world can anyone "promote" a sexual orientation? It's not like it's catching.

Shut it Patty,

Being queer is abnormal, it's a psychological abnormality,

when science is advanced enough, you will be able to take a course of tablets, which will rectify the problem.

Remember this, if humanity had started off gay, we would not be here now talking about filthy queers.

Until then, keep quiet about it, normal citizens don't want to know about your filthy sickness.

Yeah, well, good luck selling that point of view much longer. Dehumanizing others is never a lasting ideology. The obvious reality is that it's dying out. Targetting gay people is more and more a hallmark of only the most totalitarian countries in the world. It's ridiculous to be all up in someone's business, just because they like a gender that you don't want them to like.

Thanks for the link.

Personally I think most anglo saxon countries are generally sick, that's where you see most gays, most paedophiles, most child abusers, most rapists, most killers, the list is endless.

The Jews just took advantage of that sick anglo saxon society but, I've noticed most northern European countries are the same, it's where you find those sick b astards.

We have to have YOURS shoved in OUR faces. We're part of humanity. It's only fair that we get to shove some, too.

After reading your previous rant about Anglo-Saxon countries, Jews, and Northern Europe, I couldn't BEGIN to imagine who you consider "normal people".
