When & where is the "I'm a white heterosexual victim rally"
I have thought about this too. I have no problem with all those gay pride & "others" rallies but when can I get out & rally for my white heterosexual lifestyle??? Oh that's right..I'm busy working two jobs, supporting my college kid, volunteering with a youth group....need I go on. By the way, I was really impressed with the key spokesperson of last night & then you wonder why you get the crap smacked out you...it's NOT HATE...you're just freakin' annoying!

As the parent of a gay student who attended the rally at UVA I applaud them for standing up for their right as HUMAN beings to live freely and not get beaten up or discrimitated against because they love differently than others. No where did I see where these students are asking anyone to live the way they do or love the way they do; they just don't want to be mistreated, harmed or injured because they are "different" than others. No one was shoving their lifestyle in anyone's faces; I saw no inappropriate behavior. Personally, I find that those who hate others for their differences are merely living out of fear and are the ones who are misguided. Making fun of this rally or their desire to bring awareness to a growing problem is a way to turn your own fear into what you believe is power; which is nothing more than bullying.
As far as college students getting free tuition I for one can tell you that my college student gets nothing for free. Scholarships are difficult to receive and I have yet to find someone who is willing to fork over $20.000 a year to my child for education. My child works hard, studies hard and will receive a degree that she has earned all by herself. Categorizing every student because of what a select few receives is once again misguided and unfair. You people need to stop complaining, become educated yourselves and strive to be more like those who are rallying for equality for EVERYONE. Living in fear is a sad way to live; no one deserves to be mistreated just because they are different. I wonder if there was a rally with physically disabled folks on the steps of the Rotunda asking not to be mistreated if the nay-sayers would treat them the same way. Remember, when you mistreat someone you are mistreating someone's child...would you want your child to be mistreated? I know I don't...
disappointed yet again

I dont need a mirror you must feel real smart because you can spell backwards how long did it take you to come up with that? Regardless of someones life choices they are still someones child/brother/nephew/cousin/fr iend. Show some compassion for a human life. But I guess you think he asked for it right? Simple minded people SMDH!! You should be ashamed but that would require you having a conscious something else your most likely lacking. How would you feel if your family was experiencing such a tragedy and people were making such comments it can happen to anybody regardless of their age or sexual prefrence. Sincerely disappointed and DISGUSTED!!

How ironic, Fear? you say? fear is the ignorance, ignorance born from just dum to a lack of education on different levels. Free college education should be available to all kids, enlightenment leads to the end of fear.

Why should I "strive to be more like those rallying" when their lifestyle choice is unnatural and detrimental to society? Physical disabilities are NOT chosen..therefore your physically handicapped analogy doesn't hold water. I wouldn't want my child mistreated either, but to choose a "lifestyle" that runs contrary to natural law leaves one open for ridicule and scorn.

Do you believe pedophles are okay too?: they've just chosen "a different way to love". How about people who have sex with animals, they've just chosen a different way to love...How about people who masturbate in public, they've just chosen a different way to love...themselves. You see where this goes, right?

Those rallying are rallying for equality, peace and the idea that we live in a free country and should be allowed to live the way want/choose/or are born to live. I will not argue whether it's a choice or not...we all have our own beliefs on that, however, nobody deserves to be ridiculed, beaten, mocked or scorned because of the way they live. I am sure that the way you live is different from others and could be mocked or scorned too. To love others unconditionally without judgment or mockery is how these folks want to live. If you don't agree then so be it; but why is it necessary to ridicule and scorn...that's just hateful and wrong.

Nobody "chooses" to be gay or straight. You are BORN gay or straight.

Are people BORN to be rapists, killers, thieves, politicians, lawyers, doctors, teachers??? No...
The only thing people are BORN to be is human, male or female. Even race, as it is defined, can be changed through intermarrying. Everything else is YOUR CHOICE...or do you believe that you are not in control of your own life?

I NEVER said they have chosen to love a different way...if you read the quote below you will see that I will not argue whether it is a choice or not. Being the parent of a gay child and having watched that child struggle with it for years I cannot imagine why anyone would choose to live a life that will draw haters and bigots to ridicule and persecute them. Knowing what society thinks and what our hearts tell us can often times be two totally different things. And I might add where is your imperical data that proves people are not born gay? I don't have scientific data or statistics; what I do have is a child who loves differently than I do but loves unconditionally without judgment or ridicule; something I think you and many others lack in our society. Bigotry shines through in many ways.

What I said was:
"Those rallying are rallying for equality, peace and the idea that we live in a free country and should be allowed to live the way want/choose/or are born to live. I will not argue whether it's a choice or not...we all have our own beliefs on that, however, nobody deserves to be ridiculed, beaten, mocked or scorned because of the way they live.

You need to work on your logic skills.
