I say lets decouple the T from the LGB. I don't like the idea of trying to take away all of our sexual predjudices in one fell swoop. It is not the American way. In reality we should just give them up one at a time. I realise it would be difficult to give up predjudices against the L's without also giving them up for the G's. If you have given them up for the L's and the G's the B's don't give you much to hang your hat on, so I can see why they are lumped in with the other two.
But I still think we could give equal rights to the LGB communities and still hang on to our predjudices to the T's for a while longer.
All in favor?

take Chaz Bono as an example. lesbian chasity was living with her lesbian girl friend. chasity becomes Chaz and lesbian GF breaks up with "him" because.....she's a lesbian and isn't attracted to guys, which Chaz now is.....
The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.
An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.
You'd think they'd find common ground with Libertarians, but too many claimants to that title are really "Republitarians."
While this perhaps should get its own thread as it has as much to do with general bullying (and i don't even know if the target is gay), here is even more proof of how neanderthal the nfl remains: The worst of the Richie Incognito/Jonathan Martin report - SBNation.com
"Incognito, Jerry and Pouncey began regularly calling Martin a "****," a "bitch," a "pussy" and a "faggot.""
"During the 2012 Christmas season, Coach Turner gave all of the offensive linemen gift bags that included a variety of stocking stuffers. In each gift bag except for Player A's, Turner included a female "blow-up" doll; Player A's bag included a male doll. Martin and another player were surprised that Turner did this; Martin further said that he was offended that Turner had endorsed the humiliating treatment of Player A by participating in it. Incognito and others agreed that this incident with Coach Turner occurred. When interviewed, Turner was asked if he gave Player A a male blow-up doll. He replied, "I can't remember." We do not believe that Turner forgot this incident, which many others recalled."
What is the point of that exactly? Unlike with the cheerleaders, in a team locker room, coaching goes on, very gay-looking activity by supposedly heterosexual men goes on, clearly serious stuff that ought to be valued more than the individual's right to participate on an athletic team /s
There is *no way* unless he has a death wish that michael sam is going to be groping 50 of his teammates in the shower, or whatever the unspoken fear is. One-two small cheerleaders or even a handful in there with an nfl team, i would not bet on their safety. That's the difference. Not to mention that unless there's a female on the team, she simply doesn't belong naked in the locker room with them.
I don't know why you would shun your teammate but for god sakes, if it's such a *huge* deal like some are making it, put up shower curtains! This novel technology. These excuses are so pathetic, identical to what the military fell back on and it's really just about keeping the gays out of sports.
Well his missouri team didn't seem to have a problem with it all year, my intramural doesn't have a problem, the dorm floor didn't, what possible excuse does the nfl have left?
