    When it comes to this subject I will make the comparison that my left wing friends seem to always make with blacks and gays ........gays are treated like royalty compared to what the blacks had to endure.......

    And black people had it a lot easier than Jews in Eastern Europe during the 30's and 40's. That doesn't really tell us much of anything.

    Yeah. It wasn't very effective. You get points for effort, though.

    Consider where the criticism is coming from I think my point is made and it is you can't compare race with people identified by their sexual preference.

    so basically you are admitting that you arent taking the word at face value but making up your own opinion and definition of what the word oppressed means. Got it!

    Basically its like you saying Halle Berry has a very dark skin color

    some one comes along and corrects you and says "no she doesnt"
    but then you say, she does compared to carrot top! LOL

    Funny. To bad the fact remains they are still oppressed and have been killed, assaulted, abandoned, fired, discriminated against, disowned by friends and family all for simply being gay. Many are afraid to let it be known they are gay and they currently dont have equal rights.

    Actually you can make that comparison. There are clear parallels between the legal issues currently facing gay people and those that faced black people in the 60's. The scale is certainly different, but the legal issues are the same. I fleshed this out in this thread several pages back.

    What word? all those things are blown way out of proportion and if anyone commits crimes against gays they should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.............

    Lert me give you and example..............A known gay man gets fired because he is incompetent. The first thing he does is go to the EEO and complain that he was fired because he is gay when his gayness had nothing to do with it
