I certainly never said it there, but interesting that you think someone sympathizing with gays must be gay.

Then I must have misunderstood you. So why were you discriminated against in the Walgreens?

I thought you had me on ignore?

You can still see what ignored people say when you want to see a trainwreck.

Here's the topic in question:

You didn't whine about it because it didn't happen every waking moment of your life

Also, I don't really see any whining anywhere other than from, in your own terms, white middle class males who feel that everyone experiences life the same way they do...

You don't know enough about me to make either of those statements.

Don't assume I've never experienced what it's like to be a minority. I lived the first 16 years of my life in a neighborhood and school where I was the minority. I've been ridiculed, called names, bullied - I do know what it's like. Instead of whining about how hard it was and that I needed special treatment, I worked hard to better myself and my environment. It wasn't fair but I didn't let that stop me.

Please add something constructive to this thread -- something that's based on what you know, not what you assume about me.

Actually, I do know it didn't happen every waking moment of your life. No white male in America has experienced more than a few moments of what it's like to be a woman or a minority. It's entirely impossible.

Yes, you were ridiculed and called names for being a minority, but what happened if you walked into the nearby Walgreen's? What happened when you applied for a job? What were the expectations for your life? Who where your role models?

This is all the major things you're missing while focusing instead on the minor issues like "no one looked like me."

I don't see a single instance of me saying those things happen to me, and I'm pretty sure at that point I'm clearly talking about something beyond just being "gay," as I doubt the security guard at a local Walgreen's sees a white guy walk in and goes "oh, he's gay, I'd better follow him around and check his receipt on the way out."

But let's not get back into your warped world view on that topic in this topic, right now it's about your reading comprehension.
