    Oh, boo hoo for you! Gays get called all kinds of names.

    I also have to say that many of your statements are very insulting to all people who have either adopted or gone through IVF.

    Christians have an opinion, but we don't seek you out and kill you. Our churches even preach tolerance, so most of us don't even make an issue of it verbally.

    The level of crime gays experience in America is not significantly greater then the level of crime anyone else in America experiences.

    You're nothing special. In fact, the level of crime gays endure being relatively the same as everyone else is one thing that makes you equal to everyone else.
    Hmm I remember the context being different...

    You gays in this country don't even know how good you have it. You have nothing to complain about. Not one goddamn thing. Nothing.

    I came up with things we have to complain about.

    I dont think 70% of straight people have been harassed about their sexuality nor do 31% of straight kids have to miss a day of school because they felt unsafe. Also I didnt realize we judge equality based off of crime rates. We still dont have the right to marry nor do our spouses get the same benefits of heterosexual spouses in the military.

    Wow, were you trying to show an example of the perfectly bigoted post? If so, well done!

    From the legal perspective, the right to marry has literally nothing to do with kids.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    funny, when I was on active duty, if someone were to see me kissing my wife in public I could be punished for "public display of affection" PDA.

    Includes off-duty hours as well? If so, that's just dumb.

    Interesting. In your mind marriage is nothing but sexual control. Good to know.

    this is bull****, the numbers are about the same. straight kids just feel unsafe for different reasons (too fat, too skinny, wears glasses, poor, etc, etc, etc, etc)

    Now, I don't agree with jerry on the vast majority of things. That said...

    What makes your getting harassed for being gay any worse or more hurtful or damaging to emotions then someone being made fun of for being a geek? For being fat? For being poor? For being rich? For being smart? For being akward around the opposite sex? For being a virgin? For being a member of the band? For being a red head? For being a blonde? For being short? For being southern? For being northern? For your parents job? For your parent being in prison? For your siblings actions?

    I could go on and on. I'm not saying homosexuals are not harassed, or that its not a bad thing, but I do understand a bit of Jerry in regards to the "woe is me no one understands how horrible and mean people pick on us" things as if somehow, someway, homosexuals are special snowflakes that are the only people in this country who are picked on for things they don't actively tangably choose.
