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.

You can't seriously be trying to suggest that systemic prejudice is equal to isolated incidences. Blacks were held in slavery for decades, but if a couple black guys kidnapped a white guy and forced him to do stuff for them, suddenly it's all even and blacks should accept being slaves?

This idea of equivalency between such disparate situations is just silly.

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.

Right, we shouldn't try and make everyone equal, we should just accept that some people are going to be treated worse based on something they had no control over, and not make any attempt to rectify the situation.

Two wrongs don't make a right

By all means, point out the "wrong" that the minority is committing by trying to have their GaymerCon.
