Gay people get their own ****ing thanksgiving dinner hosted by the deans of my college every year here. The gay flag flies on the quad for a month straight. If I told any of my stories about growing up, I wouldn't have any friends at all. I have to listen to badmouthing about 'rednecks' and 'Christers' from students and faculty alike, all **** day.
I'm sorry for you. This isn't trying to be a "Who has it worse" type of thread, so please, keep that out. It's not downplaying your experiences, but everyone has **** to deal with. So, if the issues like that are here, make a thread about it, and help this community deal with it. If not, go deal with it in the appropriate places so you guys can stop being persecuted. That's what we are working at ourselves.

Why? Why does it matter that they're gay in order to share the same feelings as you? Why does it matter that they're gay in order to like the same things as you? Why does it matter that they're gay at all? You know why it matters?

It doesn't. It really doesn't.

I hate gays who flaunt "I'm gay. Deal with it."

It's like...I deal with it perfectly fine and even accept you until you start rubbing it in everyones face that you like the same gender. Seriously, shut the hell up and go away.

Time for some of that old ultra-violence.

(Not an anti-gay statement, merely quoting Clockwork Orange. I love gays.)

A lot of minorities segregate themselves which tends to defeat their entire cause. "We want to be equal but we want to cling to people who ONLY have our belief system". Not really a way to get acceptance. In all actuality, most hardcore equality minded people tend to defeat their own arguments/causes by segregating themselves in the name of such. Be different in your beliefs and what not.... that's great individualism should be celebrated... Not segregated. It's self defeating.

I am not comparing "persecution-peens." I'm not arguing whether or not gays are "zomg the most persekuted group evar!" All I'm saying is that experiencing life as a marginalized group often leads one to seek out the company of others who have similar life experiences.
Silly person, the difference is your assuming that people here don't understand being in a minority, I am a minority. and guess what. I DON'T USE THAT AS MY PRIMARY REASON FOR FINDING PEOPLE TO HANG OUT WITH. I don't care what your orientation is, oh your not irish? what ever, your a person first and foremost and guess what I find common things that people like...ya know like playing LoL, if your looking for friends on here, if your gay or anything else, It doesn't matter, test the water and deal with it. If your looking for a handout of trying to find people who are just gay your limiting the scope of your search.

You need to expand beyond your tiny group if your ever going to change the world. Dammed fool, you will never change anything if you keep congregating toward the same kinds of people over and over.

TO CHANGE THE WORLD'S VIEW OF YOURSELF, YOU HAVE TO BE BETTER THEN WHAT THEY THINK YOU ARE. To stop hatred and pain and all the suffering, you have to being something other people look up to, and guess how that's never going to happen. by limiting yourself to just those who more or less "the same" as you
