These are the things that happen when society does not accept homosexuality

  1. My daughter recently told me she has friends that are gay. She sent this to me by email. I have always thought homosexuality is wrong. After reading this it is obvious that these people are being treated wrong.

    "The Gay Movement: Homophobia

    I am the mother who is not allowed to even visit the children I bore, nursed, and raised. The court says I am an unfit mother because I now live with another woman.

    I am the boy who never finished high school, because I got called a fag everyday

    I am the girl kicked out of her home because I confided in my mother that I am a lesbian.

    I am the one working the streets because nobody will hire a transsexual woman.

    I am the sister who holds her gay brother tight through the painful, tear-filled nights.

    We are the parents who buried our daughter long before her time.

    I am the man who died alone in the hospital because they would not let my partner of twenty-seven years into the room.

    I am the foster child who wakes up with nightmares of being taken away from the two fathers who are the only loving family I have ever had. I wish they could adopt me.

    I am not one of the lucky ones. I killed myself just weeks before graduating high school. It was simply too much to bear.

    We are the couple who had the realtor hang up on us when she found out we wanted to rent a one-bedroom for two men.

    I am the person who never knows which bathroom I should use if I want to avoid getting the management called on me.

    I am the domestic-violence survivor who found the support system grow suddenly cold and distant when they found out my abusive partner is also a woman.

    I am the domestic-violence survivor who has no support system to turn to because I am male.

    I am the father who has never hugged his son because I grew up afraid to show affection to other men.

    I am the home-economics teacher who always wanted to teach gym until someone told me that only lesbians do that.

    I am the woman who died when the EMTs stopped treating me as soon as they realized I was transsexual.

    I am the person who feels guilty because I think I could be a much better person if I didn’t have to always deal with society hating me.

    I am the man who stopped attending church, not because I don’t believe, but because they closed their doors to my kind.

    I am a warrior for my country serving proud, but can’t be my true self because gays aren’t allowed in the military.

    I am the person who has to hide what this world needs most, love.

    I am the person ashamed to tell my own friends I’m a lesbian, because they constantly make fun of them.

    I am the person who isn’t sure what she is. I am the who is rejected by her “best friends” because of a less-than-conventional crush.

    I am the boy tied to a fence, beaten to a bloody pulp and left to die because two straight men wanted to “teach me a lesson.”

    This is the boy, Matthew Shepard. On October 7, 1998 Aaron McKinney and Russell Henderson lead him to a remote area east of Laramie where they demonstrated unimaginable acts of brutality . Matthew was tied to a split-rail fence where he was beaten and left to die in the cold of the night. Almost 18 hours later he was found by a cyclist who initially mistook him for a scarecrow. Matthew died on October 12 at 12:53 am at a hospital in Fort Collins, Colorado. Murdered because he was gay.

    If you believe that homophobia is wrong, then reblog this.

    If you are ignorant, then ignore this."

  2. Poignant e mail.

    So whose lap do we drop this list of problems in? Every group has their problems, nothing special here. I suppose to raise the consioucness of the problem, well done. Individually we do what we can but collectivly human nature is what it is.

    Yeah, stop pushing your degenerate agenda on my kids. I don't care who you fuck, just stop trying to push it on others.
  4. Obviousy you are one of the guys who would murder a homo. I fuck my wife. Who do you fuck? What are you going to do if one of your sons or daughters turns out to be gay? Kill them? I thought so.

    And congrats on being the first homophobe to respond. :D
  5. You know, you could change almost every one of those examples from "homosexual" to something like say "ex-con" or "schizophrenic" and it would work.

    In either case, you do not want any of those types of people around your children and you definately dont want your child to become one of them.
  6. I used to make snide comments. One time I was walking with an old friend and saw an obviously gay guy and made a joke. Without turning her head or missing a beat she said

    "You know, you're going to be coming back as what you despise, so you know what it feels like."
  7. My attitude towards deviant behavior is simple: I don't care what you do (even if your wife does you with a strap on) as long as it does not become part of popular culture and stays secret. Homosexuality is NOT "okay", it is a disorder, it means some circuitry in brain is not working properly and nobody should be "PROUD" of it.
  8. Regardless of many attempts by the gay lobbyists to shove a lifestyle choice up the anus of everyone else, and label everyone else a homophobe.

    According to conservative christians, muslims and I am sure a few others, it is a sin. They have a right to their beliefs. It is one of the few behaviors in scripture that says that God hates. Are they homophobes for practicing their beliefs?

    There is a group of people who are against the laws prohibiting consensual sex with children. They feel wronged. If sexual choices become equivalent to becoming a protected minority, then everyone must be heard, not just the gays

    I have zero pity for their hardships, regardles of the humorous attempt to start this thread and paint them as a sad, pitiable, wronged group.
  9. What if one of your kids was gay and was getting beaten up in school, then later not hired or accepted in society, then eventually tortured to death because of it?

    Note that the first post listed numerous examples not of gay people pushing their agenda on others, but having non-gay people push their agenda onto them. It's pretty rare to see groups of gays going round murdering people for being straight.
  10. In what ways are consensual sexual behaviours comparable to non-consenting crimes or actual insanity?

    Paedophilia has no connection with homosexuality - most child-abusers are heterosexual, and almost all rapists are heterosexual.
