I'm gay and here discussing gay related issues.

Why is a supposedly straight person on here?

Okay, so you've expressed them. Just what do you think you've accomplished by doing so?

Did you stop same-sex couples from marrying?

No.

Did you stop married same-sex couples from getting federal benefits?

No.

Did you stop gay kids from being allowed in the Boy Scouts?

No.

So just what have you accomplished by expressing your "anti-queer related views"?

It fascinates me that no one has ever explained, at rock bottom, when everything else is gone, the. benefit. of. this. behavior.

I suspect the benefit is farther-reaching than has to do with what we actually *see*. The antigay are clinically obsessed and come off as unstable and as spiritually lost and mendacious. I sometimes think money may be the bottom line.

I *PROMISE* YOU it's not god or their actual so-called religion. That has *NOTHING* to do with any of this, nothing whatsoever.

I know you know that the death of DOMA was a huge step that basically knocked down the only wall between them and nationwide legal acceptance.

You know this as well as anyone else here.

Lawrence v. Texas was specifically seen as removing a barrier to the acceptance of marriage between two persons of the same gender. In direct response to that which was going on prior thereto and directly afterwards -- in direct response -- DOMA was introduced as a measure meant to *halt* such progress.

The supreme court just set it on fire and stuffed it down a toilet. ONE provision of it remains which has any efficacy in denying marriage to couples of the same gender in precisely 37 states.(Note that I say "has any efficacy," not that it is currently and directly tied legally to the antigay "laws" of those states.)

Many pundits, even antigay ones, believe that things will happen pretty quickly now. To my own shock, I've seen a number of predictions of five years or less.

It's good to avert queer things, a queer computer is likely to electrocute you. A queer microwave will fill you full of radiation. A queer television may catch fire. But people who are queer deserve respect and assistance, living with disabilities is not fun, but I fail to see what all that has to do with gay people.

Your last notion is a known myth, so it's dismissed like your god is.

I heard a great line the other day while watching "The West Wing".

Republican want a huge military but never want it to be used anywhere.
The democrats want a small military and expect it to be everywhere.

Of course this is simplistic and silly.

Conservatives have convinced themselves that simply by claiming they are conservative means they aren't just as reactionary and short sighted as any liberal could be.

Oddly enough in their effort to demonize the word "liberal" they have also demonized the term "conservative".

It was DEMOCRATS who plunged us into war in World War I.(BIG mistake).

It was DEMOCRATS who plunged us into war in World War II.(Defeating Hitler, but leaving half of Europe to a WORSE dictator). And our troops are STILL in Germany and Japan 65 years after the war ended ! Are they EVER coming home ???!!!

It was DEMOCRATS who plunged us into war in Korea, a place where a state of war STILL exists, and where we have had troops stationed there since 1950. Are they EVER coming home ???!!!

It was DEMOCRATS who plunged us into military action in Somalia for GOD-ONLY KNOWS-WHAT STUPID-REASON, where we suffered more than 100 men killed, wounded, and captured. For WHAT ???!!! Somalia is a "vital American interest" ?!

And The Obamaniac has still not "ended the wars" like he PROMISED HE WOULD in his campaign. No, The Obamaniac EXECUTES Americans overseas, without accusation, indictment, trial, nor conviction. So THAT'S what liberal Democrats stand for when they scream "civil rights !" !!!

Now let me think..... WHY am I NOT a Democrat ???

Really? WWI and WWII were mistakes? And how is this? The Korean War, was in large part, the United Nations, brought forth by the United States, to fight the cold war. Again, how was this a mistake? Nobody likes war, but these were all necessary.

Yes, Obama should pull out of Afghanistan, but now you are talking about unnecessary wars, that Republican's put us in.

And here's the thing, the Wars you are blaming on Democrats, were all paid for by tax increases. The two Wars that Bush Jr. put you in, not paid for and put on credit, that Republicans still refuse to pay for.

p.s. Stay on Point, this forum is about a rediculous flag limit, becasue of religious bigotry.

Letting my views be known to my representative in Congress contributed to the end of DADT. It also contributed to us getting marriage equality in 13 states with more to come. It also contributed to us getting the federal govt to recognize our legal marriages.

I never said everything was in place.

I was simply pointing out that you've accomplished nothing except to demonstrate how hateful those opposed to equality are. Meanwhile we've make significant progress toward true equality over the past decade, in part because of the irrational rhetoric people like you post on forums like this.

Keep up the good work; you're helping us more than you could ever know.

1. Just wanted you to know you are trying to reason with a man who says the Constitution doesn't have a right to vote!
2. Sort of like people who insist that when the writers of the Constitution wrote "ALL CITIZENS", their 'original intent' was "just the ones we morally approve of"
1. The constitution doesn't vote.
2. The writers of the constitution all owned slaves and didn't think women should vote.

Would you be ok with a KKK or a MassResistance flag?

Mass Resistance has it's own flag now? Yes, allowing them to fly flags at their own events is the price of democracy in this country. And allowing them to hold events on public property is another price we pay.

And our democracy is worth the price. Our first gay pride marches were received with the same opprobrium and violence as we see in many Eastern European and African countries today. Our early activists, like today's activists in Poland, Russia, Uganda, Nigeria, Jamaica, and many many other countries were very brave, and many gave their lives. Many are still giving their lives.

There is much to be proud of in that Rainbow Flag. And the fact that it annoys you is one more good reason to keep flying it.

Yup that about sums up the liberal gay hypocrisy. The typical "Do As I Say, Not As I Do" mentality.
Never heard anyone say that, come to think of it, there are a lot of religious symbols all over our public offices.
