if you'd read the rest of the post you might understand a little bit better.

Prejudice is wrong. Promoting it in a public forum is wrong.

So why would a "OMG I'M GAY ADD ME" thread be any different? A lot of the things people insist don't have any place here aren't even offensive. Talking about ones sexual interests here should be a much more obvious case of 'does not belong' than "OMG I LIKE ANIME PLEASE ADD ME" or any of those other threads that get downvotes.

But, of course, sexual orientation is just one of those controversial political things we have to watch what we say/do with regards to, so it gets treated all special, I guess.

I'm not against gay gamer threads per se, I'm against that particular "Hey everybody pay attention to my demographic" thread getting treated better than all the other ones you **** heads have constantly downvoted.
That's pretty much what "vapidity aside," was addressing. Regardless, who says I think the other threads like it should be deleted/hated? Someone's attentionwhoring really doesn't hurt me at all, so why would I say they couldn't do it? I just posted in this thread because I have personal experience being a homosexual, and felt like piping up, what with it being a forum and all.

I really don't see how it's even a gay issue. I know a lot of christians who feel more comfortable interacting with other christians because they know they aren't going to be judged as too preachy or what have you; also, some are just so vapid that being another christian is pretty much all you need to do to please them. I also know a lot of gay folks that're just as vapid, and just the same applies, with less christ and more ***** generally. Generally. Some people do this kind of thing because they feel a void of a particular demographic in their life, some people do it because they're dumb as ****. Doesn't mean it makes sense for people unaffected to care. And being FORCED to see a topic that you know you have no interest in but clicked on anyway is really not the OP's fault at all.

For the record, I'm not actually arguing AGAINST you in that the thread in question and threads like it are vapid/have no merit/etc. And I get that they've been treated poorly in the past. I don't feel like this one should be an exception, I don't like the treatment of the others, either. They're a waste of digital space, really, but they're important to someone who isn't me and I respect that. Not them as people, perhaps, but that they can make a thread if they want to. And yes, that would include "offensive" groups. If skinheads want to find other skinheads and they aren't coming at me with a knife to do it, I really don't care, nor do I understand why others do.

Yet the APA, American Psychological Association, the psychology experts, all unanimously agreed that homosexuality is not a mental illness.

If you were to say this in a psych forum, they would probably diagnose you as crazy.

I don't even need a psychology degree to tell you that you have issues.

Excellent post! I wholeheartedly agree. Being gay isn't important to me personally, but since lots of people are constantly trying to pass laws that govern my life ONLY because I'm gay, they force it to be important to me. It gets very very tiring sometimes to have to deal with a constant spew of "F@G" this and "GAY" that online spoken only in a derogatory sense. That's why I have a section of my buddy list dedicated to playing with people who I know are either gay or gay-friendly.

Also I use the report function liberally. ^_^

Fruitstrike. Is that like a limp wristed ***** slap or are you literally hurling plantains at your foes?
