I'm not gay, but since I share your views (aside from blaming liberalism for everything) I'd say D. I think I am one hell of an opinionated (*)(*)(*)(*)(*)(*)(*).Disclaimer: I know opinions of gay posters on PF don't represent the gay community as a whole.
There's been a flurry of debate on this site about President Obama's "evolving" change of heart on gay marriage. I see it as cheap political pandering on his part, but that's not the topic of this thread.
So with all this much ado about nothing, it got me wondering about how my views on gays in this country jives with homosexuals.
First of all, I could careless if gay folks get married. What two adults do in their own personal lives is no concern of mine. I'll take it one step further by saying, denying two consenting adults the right to marry seems very unconstitutional to me. I don't think government should be in the marriage business anyway. I also find this defense of marriage garbage, nothing more than a stinking pile of hypocritical crap. We live in a country with a divorce rate around 50%. It's kinda like kicking your dog on a regular basis, then getting mad when someone else kicks your dog.
Secondly, I had no problem when DADT was overturned. If you want to serve your country so be it, you shouldn't be penalized because you hump on people of the same sex. I served in the Army for over nine years myself, and once I rose to a leadership position all I cared about was the job performance and wellbeing of the soldiers under me. I had a kid in my squad for two and a half years that I deployed with too Iraq once with. He was a decent soldier, never a " go getter", but dependable, and never had to be told twice to do something. Once we redeployed back to Germany, it was time for him to leave the army since his enlistment was up. Before going home, he told me in private that he was in fact a homo. My exact words to him were," I don't give a (*)(*)(*)(*) if you're a queer, you served honorably, you had your squad's back downrange. You have nothing to be ashamed of, and enjoy civilian life." And, that was that.
I don't really care if gays adopt kids either. I'd rather be raised by two loving homos, than be stuck in some (*)(*)(*)(*)ed up foster care system.
Now here's where I take issue with some folks and attitudes in the gay community.
Hate crimes. Guess what, you're not anymore special than anyone else. A crime is a crime, and a victim is a victim. Some of you (*)(*)(*)(*) and moan about equality and not having it, but separate yourselves from mainstream society with these laws. I don't fully hold gays responsible for these laws, they're just another case of well intentioned retardation brought to you by liberalism.
Forced acceptance and political correctness. There will always be people who will never accept you because you're gay. Sorry, but that's a reality. As long as your physical wellbeing and rights aren't infringed upon, why would you give a (*)(*)(*)(*)? Sorry, free speech is a rough, and your feelings aren't protected by our constitution. I remember that stupid commercial with that frizzy harked black chick lecturing a kid, because he said "that's gay". What a waste of time. Be gay all you want, but stop being such (*)(*)(*)(*)ing crybabies.
Gay pride parades. You got the right to gather and express yourselves like anyone else, but some of your buddies take over the top. Bondage suits, and assless chaps, really? Some of these folks make themselves out to be freakshow (*)(*)(*)(*)(*)(*)(*)s more than anything. Not helping your cause, just saying.
I'm too lazy to make a poll, so in your opinion, do my views make me:
a. Straight up homophobe.
B. Slightly enlightened homophobe
C. Just a straight person who doesn't get it.
D. Opinionated (*)(*)(*)(*)(*)(*)(*).
All feedback welcomed.
