Your words, not mine.

Not sure why you keep backing away from your posts. When you say "stop doing X and do Y instead", then yes, you are suggesting that you can't do both. If that's not what you intended to say, then I suggest you pick your words better next time.

If you read my prior posts you'll see that I encourage standing up for one's rights on an individual level. Make that your focus when the lines are crossed. Put your time and energy into that, because that's what will get you somewhere.

You'll never do as much on an individual level as you will on a group level. That's why, for example, people join political parties instead of trying to go solo.

Marching down the street and yelling doesn't right the wrongs, it just makes a lot of noise. Look at how effective Occupy Wall Street was.

Well, that's a strawman, as I was never suggesting that marching up and down streets would be righting wrongs.

I've been preaching exactly what you stated above (again, read some of my prior posts). Stand up for your rights and the changes you want and do something about it.

And yet here you are implying that these people shouldn't be having their GaymerCon. And before you say you didn't say that - yes, you didn't, but you agreed with someone who did (post #62).

And you think that's going to help? Whose mind will it change? Like I said, us non-gays get it,and we've already taken our stance. What makes you think "hammering home" is going to make a difference? It sounds like you want to force-feed the idea to people at this point. That's not what this country is about. Do something that's actually effective if you want change.

Of course it's going to help. You apparently don't understand how society changes over time. You don't (with notable exceptions) have a single event that changes society, inertia is too strong. You need to constantly push against it to change it. I mean, you only need look at how much things have changed so far.
