    In other words, stop thinking of them as gay people and think of them as people.
    As soon as they stop calling it "gay-rights", or "hate-crime", or "discrimination", that will be possible.

    I'm actually not that bad looking, for my age. I have an idea of who is.

    In some parts of the world it's just about as bad. We just won't want their oil, so we don't pay attention.

    Also, in most of the developed world, it happens less. Yes, by the standard of what we supposedly call ourselves, it happens a lot.

    Did I ever claim it was a majority? Oh wait, I explictely said the opposite. Try again.

    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.
    Marriage is a legal institution. How else are they supposed to do it, exactly?

Intent, pre-meditated, etc. I don't really think the source of that matters in the sentencing, but it's good for us to know how much it happens.
    But that's not what hate crime legislation is. It means additonal punishment based on motivation.

    Please.

    Star, in my dealings with you, you have been ALL about being a lesbian. C'mon.

    Marriage is a societal invention. Gays can be gay without being married.

    Because either A, we are discussing LGBT related topics, and I like to make it personal so that people can think of how it affects actual people, and not some ambiguous group know as "The gays", or B, I've made a joke about it, and well I like to make jokes, and it's a funny topic sometimes. But that is definitely not at the forefront of my personality, or who I am. Not even close.

    Ok, but this thread isn't about your total personality or who you are. It's about how people regard homosexuality.
