You've got one group of people who face prejudice on a regular basis, and you've got another group that doesn't.

Your "explicity straight" group wasn't being harrassed in the first place. What exactly is your group supposed to be for?

People already don't look down on your "straight white men" because of their sexual orientation. The idea that there's some sort of equivalence between the two groups is ludicrous.


Weak argument. You're assuming that the so-called majority here hasn't experienced intolerance from gays. I've experienced it myself and seen it dished out to others -- hatred, intolerance directed at those they assume hate and are intolerant of them -- instead of stopping to think that there is someone that actually does respect them despite differences.

Sure, the numbers aren't equal, but how do you put a number on behavior like this? Trying to find a way to 'make' it equal goes nowhere, and just because someone is a minority doesn't give them the right to degrade a majority. Two wrongs don't make a right -- don't assume the minority is always right, and don't assume the majority has never been wronged.
