Don't embrace whatever con, petition, law etc homosexuals are currently against? Well you're just a bigot hater, your opinion doesn't count. News flash sunshine, life is tough, if a few gay people who happen to be gamers, need their own convention to feel safe from the harsh use of the phrase that's gay or whatever, they either need thicker skin, or start wearing a helmet at all times.

I'm an actual Conservative, not a left wing liberal so thats moot and just an effort to dismiss people who disagree with you. Why is a gun convention ok but a gay convention is not? Why is it ok for for interest groups who represent religion to have public events but gay people cannot? Everyone advocating church is just a whiner who can't shut up and stop spouting their liberal agenda? I find it interesting how your idea of free speech only extends to groups you like.

The racism stuff is just so silly and out there, not even going to touch that.

Actually that was more aimed at beamer, let's be honest, the gay community and those that actively support them, take pot shots at religion all the time. And that's alright because attacking religion is the "in" thing to do, unless it's something about Islam, It's ok to attack the Catholic church however. When the shoe is on the other foot however, you're met with more butthurt than a prep H convention.

The double standard is flat out quite humorous imo. At the end of the day, gay folks are people just like anyone else, if they want to be gay, who am I to say they're wrong in that, personally I couldn't care less if Beamer for example likes it in the bum, that's his choice. I'm just tired of it being thrown in everyone else face constantly by those on the left, the media, and the GBLT community, we get it, you're gay, get over yourself already and move on. Not really a need for a special gamer's convention just for them but hey whatever floats your boat I suppose.

You mean it takes shots at the organization that calls it evil?
Who would have thunk!?

Also, this double standard is, again, due to who has the power. If you're a white Catholic male you can do anything you want in this country. If you are a gay male it is considerably harder.

Will you next discuss how wrong it is that Dave Chappelle could do whiteface but it's considered wrong when Ted Danson does blackface?

Also, wow, now you're whining about how people don't like racist attacks on Islam. Well, for one, they're typically fairly racist. For another, larger one, we're not an Islamic country. We are a christian country. So, when we bash Islam, we're bashing someone else. We're often uncomfortable with that. When we're bashing Christianity we're bashing ourselves.
I go back to the Thanksgiving argument - everyone is ok when you say something mocking your father's foibles, but if your sister brought some guy, introduced him to the family for the first time, and he mocked your father, well, that would probably be the end of that guy. He suffered from a double standard because he's not one of you.
