Just commented on the Paris Hilton article and *HERE* is a great illustration of where the "anti-gay" slurs are 180 degrees different -- accompanied by clear hatred and violence.

I have zero compassion or feeling of mercy for people like these "girls."

When we talk about how much we receive bigotry, we never stop to think about how much we give it in return to those who don't understand our lifestyle. With comments such as "I hope they fry" we are just allowing the circle of hate to continue to grow. What good is that doing us?

It is obvious that these girls were brought up in a household where comppassion and open minded were running a little scarce. I am not saying that we should tolerate actions such of these young girls, but we should open our hearts to them and have some compassion for them. It's not their fault entirely that they were not taught to love everyone regardless of their differences.

But .. that's my two sense!

Human beings are not completely subjective to childhood experiences.

I still hope they fry.

Which is typically true ... the point of the matter though Lani, is that they are still in their childhood ...

I see a good debate forming ... what about you?

I don't care how they were raised. I've seen good, decent, loving people raised in horrible families. I've seen evil people raised in good families, with good opportunities and good experiences. And it takes an evil person to do what they did.

Being evil isn't a matter of how you're raised. It simply directs the output of that evil.

And those girls are my age. I would never excuse such actions of myself, I certainly don't excuse it for them.

That's fine .. I'm not saying that what they did wasn't wrong, because it was. But for you to say .. "Let them fry" that's just as bad as what they did. It's all a matter of breeding hate onto hate .. a never ending circle.

I have no pity or respect for evil people. Don't equalize being prejudiced and bigoted against gay people with feeling anger and hate towards piranhas like those teenage girls who commit horrible crimes like what they did.

I'm not equalizing at all. You are stating "Let them fry." out of what it is that they had done. In essence saying that you hate them for what it is that they have done. Again ... breeding hate. Something that us gays should not have for others who are differ from us. Wishing that they get what the law provides as justice to them is one thing, but frying ... that's another.

I'm not even going to try and pull the holier-than-thou pedestal bullcrap and pretend that I don't hate them for what they did. I'm not hating them for something they were born as. I hate them because of something horrible and inexcusable that they DID.

You can, in no way, convince me that they're merely "different". They don't deserve my empathy. If some anti-gay evangelical nutcase wants to come out of the woodwork and yell at me for being hateful "because I'm gay" then let them. I am not being prejudiced. I am not being small minded. There is nothing at all unusual about my reaction. My reaction, which would've been the same had the victim been gay or NOT.
