That's perfectly fine with me. Ask anything you want. I think it's great when people come to understand each other. I think our society needs that.<quoted text>
Absolutely not. That's not what I'm saying at all. If it were, you & I wouldn't be having this pleasant conversation right now.
I don't understand gays and I probably never will. But there out there, the sneaky little bastards, and I want to learn to be more tolerant than I've been. What better way than to get info straight from the source?
To each his own, yes. And that doesn't mean one must like everything about someone else either. Sometimes I see people (not you) getting all huffy about being bigoted or intolerant, when the person in question just has a dislike of some aspect of someone else. We all have our opinions, that's natural. It's when those opinions become generalized and develop into stereotypes that ignorance and bigotry come to the fore.Yes, they don't threaten me.
And yes, I don't have to agree with everything they do just like they don't have to agree with everything they do.
To each his own, right?
Being tolerant can be a virtue, but it's unreasonable to expect others to go further and celebrate you for some trait or other.
