Moron, you were 180 degrees wrong and sure of it and proud of it.

No need to whine about being called out on that fact.

<quoted text>Hey stupid troll, you said something about Russia not have a law regarding homosexuality.

Of course Russia has its version of Britain's old Clause 28.

You have no idea what you're raving about anymore. And neither do we.
If you could read, I said Russia had homosexuality laws. Stop being so angry and pay attention, moron.

Calm down, big mouth. The facts are what they are. Go argue with a 90 year old black person about your gripe and listen to the answers you get. Back handed quips and irrelevant bullshit seem to be the cornerstone of your argument, nothing more.

<quoted text>Thanks.

It just bothers me that any time the issue of race vs. sexual orientation comes up the issue gets clouded with who went through more.

When what it really should focus on is the gratitude that each group owes to the previous ones in the fight for civil rights and protections. Discrimination is prohibited on the basis of race, sex, color, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, political affiliation, status as a veteran or disability in only some areas of the country.

I know you don't think any of those groups deserve unequal treatment just because they aren't race based. So when any of them are treated unfairly shouldn't ALL of us stand up and speak out?
I don't think any group should be treated unfairly. If you are then speak out. Like I said, I support gay rights, I just think it's a different battle.

It's a different battle, but it's also the same, because the problems have always stemmed from ignorance, distrust, fear, and bigotry, based on innate traits.

It's not a contest to see who is the most wounded. If we look at the horrors of enslaving other humans because their skin color is darker, to the extermination of Jews - there are really no words to describe the suffering endured. It's not a matter of degree - it's off the scale.

But gay people have also been exterminated, and many know what it is to live in fear, some in fear of their lives. And even today, when we should know better based on history, there are still groups of people trying to marginalize other groups, for all of those same terrible reasons.

If we can see the similarities, and understand that it ALL stems from the same ignorance, then perhaps we can identify it when it rears it's ugly head, and teach our children to recognize it, and shun it like the evil it is.

The fight by gay folks to be treated equally under the law takes nothing away form the struggles that other groups have faced and overcome. Far from it. They have given us hope that, in the end, people can learn new patterns, and we can succeed.

Even if sometimes that education comes at the hands of the Courts.

The same could be said for many 90 yard old gay folks.

It's very hard to look at a group that you are not a part of, and FEEL what they feel, since you have not lived what they have experienced. But trying to do that is really the only way to begin to reach across the chasm, and heal.

I cannot understand what it means to be Black in America. I have black friends who are quite successful, and it's easy to assume that this is the way it is for all. I have seen one of those successful friends mourn their only son - 19 and college bound - who was killed in a drive by because he was mistaken for a gang member. I have seen others that have been pulled over for "driving while black".

I have also seen a white manager or two quietly drive out black employees (at banks and credit unions), because of innate distrust based ONLY on skin color.

And I have seen other managers quietly wage war on gay employees as well, driving them out, ONLY because they have pictures of their family on their desk, or "look" a little too gay.

It's all wrong, and it will take all of us to slowly change this. And the best way to do this is by speaking out - always - regardless of the minority being targeted.

Bigotry flourishes in silence.

Russia and the Ukraine also have no homosexuality laws. Is that also "ironic"?
Hey defective troll, Russia has anti glbt pogroms for sure, as I said. I don't know about Ukraine.

By the way cretin, it is not a requirement that two things be exactly the same in order to be compared with one another.

A basic sign of intelligence is to be able to see how things are similar and different.

The comparison of various historically oppressed groups makes perfect sense. I know this, everyone else knows this, you know this.

I didn't know anything at all about Arizona prior to moving here, except that it was warm and in the southwest. I live in the small city of Coolidge (named for President John Calvin Coolidge). I was quite surprised to learn that cotton farming here is big, and the farms surrounding me here are nearly all cotton farms. They run a great bus service here that takes you anywhere in the city door to door, like a taxi, for only $1.50 and it's called "The Cotton Express" and they have a yearly festival here called "Cotton Days". I found this city accidentally while looking for a house. I have a very nice house here in one of the nicest parts of the city.

So,acording to Google Maps, all one need do is go west on Taylor, north on Ninth, east on Sunset, till it hits Spruel.

Why don't you just put your alarm code and tell us where your spare key is and be done with it? HOW many times are you going to LITERALLY let us have a tour of your home, including all doors and windows?

Are you INSANE?

Thew code is "1-2-3-4"

The spare key is hanging on a small hook by the front door but it's marked "CAR" so nobody will know what it really is.:)

Incredible. That you plaster your HOME all over Topix where you know you have unstable people and haters on here constantly.

Your cavalier attitude never ceases to amaze me. I may be annoyed with you most of the time, but I don't want you hurt or killed. Be a little more cautious, please.

Let me ask you a question just to satisfy my curiosity: Do you always believe everything you read on the web, in magazines or see on the tv and other media ? Just curious......

I believe it when a poster at topix tries to entice boys representing themselves as underage to email him. That I believe.

Like you did as one of your previous monikers.

Of course it's a different battle. But it's still the same war.
