LBGT communities? Despite the growing acceptance of LBGT people, there are still those who strongly contend that LBGT people are sexual outlaws. They further demonize LBGT in covert and overt ways. There are those who go as far to dehumanize LBGT people. Each person has to right to live his/her life and to express himself/herself as he/she chooses as long as h/she does not hurt others and the more vulnerable among us.

Great answer,of course, there is NO rationality for this animosity.It's prejudicial to say the least.People see homosexuals as different & people are FEARFUL of difference because they CAN'T understand what isn't in their purview.Write a hub on t
My question is why is this a issue, why do people have to fear, why is this so new to people and many disagree ? We hear why you want these rights but why was these rights denied from long ago ? It is like having a baby. No one says you can not ,why?
Kiss and Tales:
You comment makes no sense---particularly your last comment about having a baby.
As for the history of rights-denied: Such stuff is the function of bigotry and hatred of those who are different, who are a minority.
I am also confused about the notion that some religious groups have that LGBT is caused by 'demons' or 'demonic possession'. I think these kinds of ideas need to be addressed.
Austinsar, anyone who thinks like that needs a good psychiatrist.The thought that homosexuality is caused by demons is a mental psychosis.
Thanks GMW. .... I did, sort of.
I think anyone who thinks ANYTHING is caused by demons needs a psychiatrist and fast!
I am still not sure how to process the depth of homophobia associated with religion (particularly Christianity) that I am witnessing lately.
I am concerned that so much pro-religious, anti-gay rhetoric comes from people who in other respects are quite intelligent.
So much of the religious argument is centered upon superstition. The anti-gay bit is based upon heresay, prejudice, ignorance
I saw this in Texas. It is unbelievable that the Texas GOP would even bother to engage with such nonsense---particularly when the social "tide" is turning in the US and Americans are increasingly getting it that we are born this way.
I totally concur with your statement, Austinstar. Some people are born homosexual, lesbian, etc. There's nothing wrong with LBGT people! They're HUMAN BEINGS, live and LET LIVE!
