    Not really. My best friend didn't really know her real dad - her parents split when she was a baby and her mother ran, because he was a real bad dude.

    Her mother re-married. And THAT man is her dad to her. He's the one that changed her pull-ups, helped her with homework, kissed her good-night, and love her like she was his own. He is her dad to her in every sense of the word. She has no interest at all in knowing her birth dad. The fact that they share some genetics means nothing to her. As she puts it, "I share genetics with everyone on earth. My dad is the one who was there for me." And I really believe her. She's even refused to release her info to her birth dad.

    She's a pretty "normal" young woman. There's nothing wrong with her for considering her adoptive father to be her father.

    Why? My gay mother is one of the best people I know. Why would you judge some one on something that does not affect you?

    Really? We shouldnt complain that we arent allowed to get married in many states? We shouldnt complain about how many people view us? We shount complain that many people are MURDERED due to being gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgendered? We shouldnt complain that if you are in the military and have a same sex partner that he or she will not get the same benefits that a straight couple will get? We shouldnt complain about all of the hateful things said about us? We shouldnt complain about those who disown their own children for being gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgendered? Believe me we have plenty to be angry about.

    Hate-crime legislation simply increases the penalty for an existing crime if it can be proven that the crime was motivated by hatred of that class.

    Murder is murder is murder. Assault is assault is assault. You can't claim equality and a special status for prosecution purposes at the same time.

    The perp's motives do not effect the vic's actions after the fact, or whether the vic reports the crime or not.
    Ok one thing that needs to be mentioned. Hate crimes dont just cover black people or gay people and what not. If someone attacks you for being white or for being straight that is also a hate crime.

    And many crimes do factor in motivation in the sentencing. Like if you were to run someone over with a car on accident vs running someone over with a car on purpose. Or the difference between 1st, 2nd, and 3rd degree murder.

    I honestly don't give a **** until they force me to make a decision.

    Oscar Wilde said homosexuality is "the love that dare not speak it's name." Someone more recently called it "the love that will not shut it's mouth."

    They want acceptance. I don't blame them. I just don't think they can legislate it, try as they might.
    I agree in someways. But you got to remember the only way we can gain the right to be married is if people are paying attention to us.

    Marriage is a legal contract, and it is what the two people bring to it.

    Hey, life aint ever gona be perfect. STFU and deal.

    I appreciate your complaining about not being married because I have the opposite problem: I can't divorce. I've been trying to divorce the bitch for 3 years, and I can't. The Army is forcing me to claim her as a full spouse so she's going to get all those military benefits despite my best efforts.

    Life sux man. Time you manned up about it.
