To be fair, gays have been treated like shit for a while. They couldn't marry who they wanted and are often ostracized by society and especially their parents. People often get hung up on what causes homosexuality but it's a moot point. These people are attracted to the same sex and we can either treat them as equals or not.

Part of being a good society is fighting for the rights of the little guy, and 4% of our population is still a lot of people. Now the law is set and they can marry and they need to reel it back, just like blacks who claim they are still being oppressed. It's a lingering victim complex from a few generations that actually experienced the hate and abuse.

Okay, I'm ready for the downvoats now.

No, fam, I get you. As I said, I'm quite ambivalent towards most social issues... but this seems to be one that's everywhere, at all times. I just was wondering why it's is everywhere, at all times when it's such a small statistical proportion of the whole.

I'm of the opinion that "We're all equal, but ..." is equivalent to "I'm not racist, but..." We are equal or we aren't, full stop. After we have established equality, what is there left to fight about? You're my equal. Cool. But as an American, I have the right to assign random hate for you for any reason. People forget that not everyone in the world has to like you just because you exist.

I randomly hate redheads. They eat boogers, are lascivious, often promiscuous, and think they're so fucking special when they aren't. They often have blotchy skin, too. Fuck redheads. Anyways... I can randomly hate them all I want. It's my right. If a coalition of redheads came to my door and demanded my acceptance for their godforsaken existence, I'd probably sic my dog on them. Their right to exist outside my property line is a-fucking-ok. Just don't get in my face about it. Fucking whores.

Everyone can hate anyone all they want. As long as it doesn't interfere with the social welfare of society, what's the fuss? People probably hate me. I'm cool with that. It's whatevs.

I think you're getting off topic. I was explaining why lgbtkdndikdbhak conversation is everywhere - it's an after shock from a time when they were actually oppressed through law. You can still hate them and the SJWs are taking it too far, I was just offering an explanation.

often promiscuous

The three redheads I've banged were all extremely slutty. Triple teamed one of them with some friends. They have a purpose on this earth.

To answer your original question. I believe I read an article that stated that 40% of people that work in news/entertainment self identify as LGBT. So, that gives them a lot of influence as they control the story.

One of my all-time favorite poems is "First They Came" - about someone who never stood up against oppression because it didn't affect him directly. The 'punch line' is that when it was "his turn" to be oppressed, there was no one left to defend him.

The lesson is that it's not ok to let injustice stand just because it affects a special interest that's not relevant to you.

It's a hot topic at the moment because NC just passed a law saying "well we can't discriminate against you directly, but if any person wants to, they can't get in trouble for it".

And that's unjust. And many more than 4% are standing against it - as they should.

My parents abused me for being gay. I went to gay conversion therapy, I had to protect myself from my dad with a baseball bat, my mom put me in a headlock and punched me in the face for "disrespecting her" (I told a friend I was gay in front of her) and I have mental problems now. I'm only 21. Sure we can get married now, but we can still get fired from our jobs for being gay, which has happened to both my boyfriend and one of my good friends here in Texas. That's a lot more important than marriage to me. I don't know if I was born gay or circumstances made me gay but does it matter?

That sucks man, regrettably there is no way to change this under the law and you can't force acceptance on society.

Definitely born that way, dude. Look into studies indicating that gay men have a bigger corpus callosum than straight dudes.

Now they are equal and can marry. So it's time to join everyone else and to ostracize the crazies.

No one wants to give up their weapons as long as they still point at their enemies.
