Now they we are going to have gays serving openly in the military what is going to be next that they can do?Will we also be okay when they want to be President of the United States?That's coming to and when it does who going to be the First Man's man?
Not sure, but he will probably be more feminine than Barbara Bush was, so what's the big deal?
I expect that people who are still hate-filled, angry and judgmental will make sure that no gays get elected president for a while to come, so you can rest easy that no challenge to the status quo looms.
What difference does it make to begin with. Gay rights are a farce to begin with.
A person's sexuality, sexual preference or who they F**k has nothing to do with rights.
A gay man or a lesbian female - always maintained their individual rights and freedoms. There F**king habits are already included.
Everything else is distortion- the left hand does not know what the right hand is doing type distortion.
Any citizen of America can run for office. Again, sexuality or sexual preference should not factor into it, nor should it even matter, with regards to doing the job they are trying to get elected for.
Who knows. Who cares as long as they do the damn job properly and better than those before them.
Ironically, some would say that the first gay president was also from Illinois....Abe Lincoln.
why wouldn't it be ok?
I never chose to be hetero.... I'm glad no one is making fun of me because I like girls.
Give 'em time, it'll come. The standard bar's being set really low even as we speak.
God, you are so incredible, Brenda. Your capacity for degrading, insulting, cruel, judgemental, hate-filled comments never ceases to amaze me.
Uh, I ignored your hate-filled judgemental post you had posted a while ago, Shades. Guess I can't ignore this one, since you (as usual) persist in making things personal. What? Was it okay for you to post your degrading judgemental stuff? Should I copy/paste it or quote it so you can't pretend to ignore it yourself?
You said, "Give em time, it'll come. The standard bar's being set really low as we speak."
So, if I don't even go into what the "as we speak" seems to say about your position on civil rights, just look at your argument here:
Major premise: standards now are low
Minor premise: "it'll come" = someone gay will be president
Conclusion: A gay president will be substandard
How can you possibly say that is not hateful and judgmental? The only grounds for your argument lie in the fallacious assumption that to be gay is to be substandard.
You don't care or even ask if the gay president might have an IQ of 225, have charm and charisma that bring people together, is a masterful economic leader, is kind and thoughtful and capable of leading the world into a better future.
You don't care. For you, he's gay, so he's substandard.
That's what you wrote. It's offensive.
Hey Brenda, btw- it might be helpful if you actually understood "Rights" to begin with.
Wow you seem like a right old cow don't you. Shame on you, you hateful slag.
That was uncalled for, no matter what venue you're in. It is not acceptable speech to be as rude as you were in this above post.
We have very strict rules here about name-calling. Please use proper punctuation in the future.
haha funny Ron.
Actually, the person referred to needs to use something called manners, if it's been made available to him. Doesn't look like it though. Very disappointing from a young man like that.
And disappointing that the thread was allowed to veer off into a (no, a couple by a couple of people) personal attacks and yet it wasn't closed to posting.
Hey, didn't they call the aliens slag's on alien nation? You must be the first sci-fi biggot. and I'm a nerd for having watched the show.
Don't use personal attacks here. Others have the right to their opinions, even when you disagree. Attack the viewpoint - not the person.
That would be me of course. I'm the Hillary Clinton and Barbara Bush of gay men. The man behind the man...I like that. MY FELLOW AMERICANS! IT REALLY DOES TAKE A VILLAGE! Clap clap...Thank you Thank you! And God Bless America!
Gay marriage is next, then a gay president. And we could still have a First Lady, if the president is a gay woman. A Frist Gentleman would be cool too. We've finally elected a black president, so a gay one might not be that far off, hopefully.
What make you think that we already didn't already have a gay/bi president? James Buchanan wasn't married and maybe he was, or maybe not. A gay/bi politician or any public figure will marry just for a front. No one will ever know. Who knows, who cares, unless you're a judugemental bigot. A pderson's prefrence doesn't make them less of a person or affect their performance.
......he could have been.....i'm sure there has already been a gay president.....
...now pucker up.....
I'd rather have a gay president who's smart, compassionate, fair-minded, and effective than a crappy straight one!
I agree, we already had our share of crappy presidents. That's sometrhing we can prove.
I'm not going to rest until we elect the first black lesbian who is an agnostic muslim.
Sounds okay to me, but what is an agnostic Muslim? If a Muslin, or even a Christian or Jew, questions the existence of God, whould that make them no longer a part of that religion? Or do you mean a former Muslim turned agnostic? How about a black lesbian or gay athiest? Someone who has a wide knowledge of all religions so when dealing with other countries, they'll have an understanding of their point of view. When it comes to issues in this country, they won't have personal religious views that won't cloud their judgement when it comes to stuff like government funded stem cell research, gay marriage, etc.
To me it doesn't matter if someone is Gay, it certainly does not affect how they perform in a workplace. Just my opinion.
Regardless of the opinions made Hate has never accomplish anything.
Hate got a bunch of new republicans elected not very long ago
Hey WOC, you agree with his statement? It shows limited understanding.
Hate always accomplishes one thing- separation.
Christain you only have to put up with gays for a few more year now, until judgment day comes , then gays go to hell and jews go to heaven.
OWOPPS did I say Jews, oh well, God is so picky.

I know being openly gay, coming out the closet, gay rights etc., seems to be one of the latest fads in today's society. But don't you think at times society as a whole (in particular Hollywood and the music industry since celebrities have the most influence on society) comes to the resuce to pamper...

Why is " COMING OUT " such a celebrated event?From pro athletes to the person down the street, why is announcing, publicly, your sexual preference even necessary? If you are gay, why not just be gay and move on? Gay people want to be accepted in the work world, political world and any...

The US president received an enthusiastic reception from gay supporters at a New York fundraiser, but a few dozen gay rights protesters outside the hotel and a handful of hecklers inside the ballroom where he spoke served as reminders of frustration that he has not done more for their cause.

Is donating to Christian orgs an obstruction of gay rights?Is donating money to Christian groups that seek to build strong families the same as fighting against gay rights? Some say such giving makes the giver guilty of hating gays. If you give to a Christian org that helps strengthen the family,...
