LGBT Lessons for Straight People: I Hate Gays But I’d Die for their Civil Rights.

I like to read comments from readers on news articles. I’ve read so many that it is rare that I find one with a new point. I admit it. The general public is a broken record when it comes to their point of view.

So I was surprised to find this comment. What intrigued me the most is that this person takes complete ownership of his feelings. He doesn’t invoke religion, tradition or biology. He does invoke incorrect psychology, and then he turns 180 in a surprising way.

Stupid Things People Say About Gays: Gays are the Most Vengeful, Hateful Segment of the Population

Carrie Prejean recently claimed that God chose her to stand up for her Christian values which include reducing human rights to theocratic laws. But Carrie Prejean, in spite of all the stupid things she’s said about the gays, is not the subject of this Stupid Things People Say About Gays.

Instead, it’s one of her supporters, “ES165,” who wrote this in response to Carrie’s push for theocracy:

“She [Carrie Prejean] simply disagrees with one of the most vengeful, hateful segments of our population. This is not her story, it’s about how hypocritical the extreme left and gay population are. Their relentless attacks are totally despicable.”

Ohio Straight Bar Gives Gay a Bloody Welcome

A group of gay and straight people headed out for a night of fun at a Mainville, Ohio bar called Tabby’s. Patrons of the bar continued harassing the group asking which of them were straight and which of them were gay. Finally, one of the men in the group, 31 year-old, Ronnie Robertson, spoke up and admitted to being a homosexual. He was then attacked and received a broken nose and multiple lacerations to his face.

Two women have been arrested and police are still looking for two men believed to be involved.

LGBT Lessons for Straight People: Words of Hate on Prop 8.

Tuesday, June First, the California Supreme Court will announce it’s decision at 10 a.m. Pacific Time. Today I looked at two websites. The LA Times and the Independent Mind. As usual, reader comments are all over the board. I’ve selected some of the negative comments and I have highlighted, in red, the words that reveal the hatred, bigotry, lies and ignorance of the people making these posts. I have copied these comments exactly and I have not corrected any spelling or grammatical errors. I welcome every reader to link to this blog, copy the words to your own blog and share this blog with your friends.

I can’t help but ask myself. If these individuals were face to face with a gay person, would they say these words? The Internet provides anonymity. That has its positives – because all of us want to stay safe. It also has its negatives. We say things we would probably never say directly to a person. If you can’t say it to someone’s face, maybe you shouldn’t say it?

Stupid Things People Say About Gays: Gay Behavior is Abnormal

First, it’s obvious that Norton immediately associates gay relationships with anal sex, something that most homophobic people do. Many homosexuals do not engage in anal sex at all and many heterosexual couples admit to engaging in anal sex, thus his argument fails before it is fully laid out.

Many will remember Jerry Lewis’ comment on his telethon raising funds for the MDA in 2007. But in case you don’t, here are his words: “Oh, your family has come to see you. You remember Bart, your older son. Jesse, the illiterate faggot.”
