"'He told me of the violence - violence form strangers and family, horrible images of beatings, destruction of property and the daily verbal condemnations,' he recalled.'It was chilling to find that so much of the testimony he shared with me was almost identical to stories my grandparents told me about growing up Black."

Of course all the fundies will start screaming when they read this.

You are not most people, R1. Disgust is what women must feel about you, as you seem to have nothing else to do but create sock puppets/alters on the gay forum!

Most people are NOT disgusted by gays. They are, however, disgusted with hypocrites like you. And morons, again like you. And hatemongers, as you win the triple crown.

Lets see as of August 2011 homosexuals are responsible for 61% of all the Aids cases in the U.S.

SOUND LIKE A PRETTY RATIONAL FEAR TO ME!
So you are regularly having unprotected sex with gay men who are infected with HIV?

Let's say that Luke's points above, 1-5, at least, are true (I'll leave 6 for a moment). Ok? What does that have to do with anyone but people willing to have anal sex? There's no doubt that anal sex, whether with a man or a woman, is riskier than other types... and riding a motorcycle is riskier than driving a car. Two (or more) consenting adults having risky sex is their own business, and their choice, just as the super-macho motorcyclists are imbeciles for risking their lives on their bikes.

As for 6, I'd like to see the actual paper so that I know whether the author is controlling for pre-adult homosexuals, as only one possible confounder. Should we condemn 15-17 year-old hetero boys from having sex with available girls or older women? If not, we can't condemn homosexual boys from having sex with other boys or older men. Horny is horny.

Actually the data is not actually correct. The stats are drawn from free clinics.

How representative of heteros as a whole are stats drawn from free clinics, skidrow denizens and slum reidents, eh?

No. Here is the definition of the word from Dictionary.com

homophobia (h&#601;&#650;m&#6 01;&#650;&#712;f&# 601;&#650;b&#618;& #601;)— n

intense hatred or fear of homosexuals or homosexuality

[C20: from homo ( sexual )+-phobia ]

'homophobe— n

homo'phobic— adj

So, in fact, the rest of your post proves the point.

You think a gay person is nothing more than a pucker hole that walks around on two legs
.
If you were to discover that each gay person is a whole complete package that doesn't require a power adapter or antenna; you would freak
