"We all of us know down here that politics is a tough game. And I don't think there's any point in being Irish if you don't know that the world is going to break your heart eventually."-Daniel Patrick Moynihan, December 5, 1963
And you know what goes on the in minds of all gay people how?
I lived with a gay person for most of her life (my daughter) and I can truthfully say she doesn't love or want to be persecuted.
I've known my best friend (who is gay,my business partner,and the guy who introduced me to my wife) for over 30 years,and I know he and his spouse do not love or want to be persecuted.
Do you plan to go fag-bashing the moment no one "gives a *****"?
Is fear of prison the only thing that keeps you from harming gays physically?
The tune you been humming though has very,very familiar lyrics.
And they are not very nice.
Maybe you should learn how to express yourself better.
If there are misunderstanding maybe the fault lies with YOU,and not all the "gays" here.
