I wish I could say more folks understand what gay people want... Unfortunately more states are amending their constitutions to exclude or discriminate against gays.
Well compulsive269...first "we" have to know what "we" want before folks are going to listen. And I know this is going to sound "funny" coming from a gay man but "we" are going to have to prove we are worthy of the rights "we" are asking for. I know that everybody is suppose to have the same rights in this country...but in truth it has never worked that way.

"We"? Do you mean all gay people? How in the world do you think "we" can agree on anything when "we" are so fractured in what "we" want. "We" can't even support one another if "we" don't care for or don't think an activity is proper, ie firearms and self protection. "We" are still told to get lost when "we" try to meet at the GLBT community center with a pro firearms group.
OK, I know you understand the issues, but our group is not strong enough or excepting of all aspects of gay life which is much the same as the heteros currently have.
I guess what I'm saying is that we do know what we want. We want to be treated equally, the same as everyone else. Families, jobs, security, etc.
I'm just flabbergasted that our equal rights must be approved by other people. We are human beings too and should get equal rights from the get go. This world or some of the people in it are just nuts!

Well if "we" don't start getting are sh*t together....."we" will never be equal to the rest of the country. I know how fractionalized the LGBT is...which is why I get a big laugh when the guys on AR15.COM start with the "Gay Agenda" bs....lets see we have
1. gay men vs lesbians 2. LCR vs Stonewall Dems 3. Butch vs Femme 4. gay vs TG's 5. Bi vs.........well nobody likes them [just kidding]
and lets not forget the biggest problem the closet cases.......how are is anything going to change with 80% [my number] of "our" group scared to tell anybody there LGBT!!!!!!!!
