We're not the divisive ones, if other people want to believe they're a 'downtrodden minority' it's all in their heads, not mine.

...bringing back one of the original statements that turned this into a trash-talking, "your opinion is wrong" thread...

I agree that the ones who draw the line create the division. It's ironic that those who want to be accepted as a normal part of society go to such measures and in the end just call out how different they are. All it does is slow down the social agenda / goal they have. Bigots / generally hateful people have a tendency to continue to behave the way they do regardless of social / political movement. I only see people change that behavior if they have a personal experience that affects them for the better.

We have laws in this country that protect citizens from discrimination. While they are not perfect, it's really more effective to take advantage of these protections on an individual level when your rights are infringed upon. Idealistic? Maybe, but if you don't use them, you lose them.

All this being said I believe in freedom of speech and the right to assemble, so I could care less what anyone does as long as it's legal and doesn't infringe upon someone else's rights. That's my contribution to the homosexual community...

And as another contribution -- someone, please educate me on this whole gay marriage thing. Why is it so important to the gay community? The only thing I can come up with is for tax benefits, but I haven't taken much time to think or read about it since I have very little interest in it...
