I'm really not sure how seriously we can take the statistics. One wonders how the group identified the gay and lesbian youth to even conduct the survey. Did they take into account that many teens have not yet self-identified as gay, bisexual, or transgender?
IMO: All surveys of the GLBT community are highly skewed by the methods--however well-intentioned--that researches employ to identify us. And I don't think there are any obvious solutions to the problem.
Very true.

Thanks for the comparison to Ann Coulter and recognizing that I put thought into my comments. I'll take those as compliments
ROTFLMAO!
. Honesty is my intent, not meanness just to be mean, but I guess you're not used to dealing with people who don't kiss up to you and tell you how wonderful it is that you are gay. I don't take anything about lefty intolerance from anyone's "handbook." I see it daily with my own eyes. BTW, there are no tears here - just a recognition that lefties, especially gay lefties, are exactly what i expect them to be.
You see what you want to see. If you were a truly thoughtful and compassionate person, you'd at least attempt to see things from others' perspectives. But compassion is not in your active lexicon.

I believe that Ann Coulter is one of the best friends we have out there. "Quisling"? I think not! They are Gay (and Trans) people who've looked at left wing, so called "Liberal" politics and found it wanting. But they're "Quislings" in your eyes. You don't want to know what they think of you.

I believe Ann Coulter has a whole gaggle of male homosexual friends she socializes with - the photos are all over the web - and she refuses comment on her sex life in light of her not being married. She was the whoreary, I mean, honorary chair of one of those sad, quisling, Republican homosexual rights groups, too.(Not Log Cabin? The other one?)
She is a performance artist profiting from fundie rubes and tee baggrz.
BTW, you're a stinking bigot and hater. No one's confused about that. Especially not you.

It's not clear how many of these monikers are even of genuine homophobes. The more verbose, jeesus ones surely are. But most of the others are probably trolls trying to get a rise while acting out their not so sublimated homosexual yearnings. And the other 30% are probably Daniel from LI / Foxy.
It reminds me of school. There was always some wise cracker kid in the back of the room, shouting out shocking or stupid things, usually the teacher would ignore the little moron, or give him a withering look. Finally, she would have enough and send him to the office or to stand outside or anything to shut him up. The loud mouth kid was happy then, for he got the attention that he was starving for and even bad attention is better than none.

The class then went on as normal.

It's an old saying, the dog barks, but the caravan still rolls on by.

I read in the LA Times on Sunday that the Millenial generation is now the biggest demographic in the country. Homophobia is SO not on their radar at all. They don't care whom one lays his or her head next to at night. Since the older Millenials are now over 30, they soon will be in charge.

Well you're a right wing nutcase, so of course you would approve of Coulter, who spends her professional life pandering to the worst of the fundie, tee baggr, misogynist, anti gay and anti trans cohorts out there.

Like Limbaugh, Coulter was a comedienne who was taken seriously by the right wing dimwits. They ended up laughing all the way to the bank.

The reactionary machine is insidious. They cater to the base. For example, Fox has outlets in all the airports. Like "big brother" in the novel, 1984, HD screens broadcast Fox News all over the airport.(An obvious monopoly and first amendment violation). They also have outlet stores stocked with O'Reily and Coulter to name a few. What they sell in the stores is off-limits. The screens need to go or at least get programmed accordingly.

A lot of bars and other private venues show Fox, too. But it is an interesting point that airports are publicly owned facilities. Are they favoring one network? It would certainly seem to be the case.

It just so happens that those various groups whom you disparage so freely are right about so many things. Their minds are not jello and they don't have any ridiculous ideas or notions about how the world works, and not how they wished it worked.

No, those freaks you are defending hate glbt people, and believe they have a jeesus right to discriminate against glbt people, and many other insane things, such as the earth is under 10000 years old.

You as a self described trans person obviously have serious issues to be defending them or Coulter. And I've read your posts on various political issues - even apart from collaborating with professional homophobes you're a right wing nutcase.

I am all for first amendment rights, but promoting a reactionary agenda in public places is far from free speech.

Is the primary broadcast of FOX everywhere in public airports free speech or a monopolistic violation of free speech rights? Is it OK to promote a single political agenda legal in such public places.

This is a new situation to me. I travel quite a bit, but rarely look at the TV in airports, unless there is a huge story that I have been following. I wasn't aware that FOX is on in all the airports. I would think that before we call it monopolistic, we would have to determine WHY it is on everywhere. If that is just the preference of the people who tune it in, rather than orders from some ultimate authority, I would think it is not monopolistic.

I don't know the reason, but I am annoyed by it. The damned things should be shut off if all they do is transmit propaganda. They could show sports or soap operas, but FOX is total BS.
