What about Women's groups? It's suppose to be about celebrating differences.

'Women's groups' is pretty broad. I'm not sure why you even brought that up.

If those that are different felt invited, wanted and not abused in common groups then they wouldn't feel the need to have their own group.

There's nothing wrong with forming your own group. Everyone has felt uninvited, unwanted, and abused at some point in time in their life. So welcome to real life. I associate with the people I like and who respect me, and ignore the ones I don't like -- it's an important life skill.

You can create any group you want. You are free to do so. You would have some criticism as ALL groups do.

It's great to live in a country where you are free to organize. I agree that pretty much any common interest group will receive at least some criticizm (heck -- that's what I'm doing to GaymerCon).

What is their agenda anyway? Sure, have a convention with nothing but homosexual gamers so you can game safely, but at the end of the day you go home and the homophobic trash-talkers are still there. My opinion is that singling themselves out is a waste of time -- but to each his/her own.

So, let's all just give up?

Those are your words -- not mine. Don't imply that I meant that in any of my posts.

No, fuck that.

I'm glad to see you don't agree with that mentality either.

I'm going to strive for perfection until I find it. Tolerance, peace for all and yada yada yada. It's a dream to reach for, better than humanity tearing it's self apart, wouldn't you say?

You lost me at 'perfection'. Dreams are great but at some point you have to live in reality. It's how you handle reality that determines where you go in life.

Not sure what you are saying here? Sounds like "Get over it and move on". You have no understanding of the issue do you? - that issue being discrimination.

See my previous post so you can understand my experience with discrimination. I'm not sure if 'get over it and move on' is the best choice of words, but if you want to accomplish dreams and goals in life you pretty much have to do that when you encounter obstacles. If you decide to stop when you hit one of those obstacles and just sit around and complain that it's not fair, that's your choice.

What are you on about here? It sounds so far off topic.

I figured that the average Blue's News reader could relate to that. The point is that 'making' things fair is not always a good thing. There's a lot of time wasted on that in this Kindergarten country we live in.
