Gay rights...?

Gay rights - Just to prove a point, a slogan from Gay Pride, credit goes to them!

What are your views on gay people, and their rights? I mean, there seem to be so many people on this site making similar discussions, but I was wondering what you actually felt on the whole subject? I'm not narrowing it down to marriage or anything like that, but I mean, didn't people have the same sort of views on interracial relationships about fifty years ago? And yet the majority of society has accepted it nowadays, so won't our reaction to Gay Rights be the same in fifty years? And who has the right to judge people anyways? Who has the right to decide who falls in love with who?

What "gay rights" are you talking about? You make it seem like gays are hunted down in the street, that they can't vote, own property, or eat in certain restaurants, or go to the same schools, etc, etc. The only "right" the don't have are spousal benefits, which, last I heard, weren't a guarenteed "right".

I'm TALKING about the fact that people today are still very prejudiced against gay people, and YES, you're right that they're not BANNED from anywhere, but they ARE made to feel unwelcome in a number of places -- and yes, I know everyone else is made to feel unwelcome too, but that doesn't make it right.

Don't you think people should have the right to go out with whoever they want? And not everyone can have children, so what about them?

I think everyone should have the same rights no matter their gender, race, or sexuality. I mean we are all people, and should be equal. No one has the right to judge anyone else for whatever reason. We're all humans, we just look different and different views on things. That doesn't mean some of us should have less rights then others.

Exactly. What does it matter whether you like men or women? Shouldn't it all be the same?
