Why not? Stamp by lostforeveragain Why not? Stamp by lostforeveragain
Made from my image [link]

I was returning from a cheering station of a 3-day breast cancer walk when I saw this on the back of a green VW and I had to get a shot.


Sorry for the not-transparentness, my Jasc Animation Shop isn't obeying my every command anymore. D=

Yes, I support gay rights.

One of the many things that baffle me these days is how little people can tolerate other people. We're all the same race- homo sapien, human. Would you expect everyone to be like you? If they aren't, why would you insist on hating or belittling or ostrocizing them?

How stupid is it to prevent people from getting married? That gets me every time. You don't agree with somebody so you keep them from marrying their loved one? Come on you idiots. They don't call it a free country for nothing. Let's live up to the name, shall we?

My full argument is here- [link]
I'll be happy to debate with you. I don't expect to 'convert' everyone to my way of thinking, and if you post just to prove that you won't change your opinion I don't care. It's not what your opinion is but if you want to limit other people's freedom because of it.
Just be sure you're ready for a reply when you post on either of my deviations.

If you want to comment, either picture is fine. Please spread this around if you can, some people need the message.

okay but let's say this. 

what if, in some miraculous world, the roles were switched. Gay people were always shown in movies, had all the rights of love and could walk freely down the street without being beaten. now, the STRAIGHT people were almost never shown in movies, got denied a ton of rights, and got teased and beaten while walking down the street.

now, straight people.

put yourself in that situation. 

would you feel oppressed ?

a world where someone suffers a lack of basic human rights based on their sexual orientation cannot be considered miraculous.

not this one, and not this hypothetical reverse world.

also where would bi/pan/ace people stand? would they all still be underrepresented since you're just switching out gay and straight's roles? would they still be considered immoral? would both straight and gay people still despise bi/pan/ace people and say they're immoral and wrong?

also, straight people don't have a radar that can detect you being gay. you can largely walk down the streets without being the target for violence purely because of your sexual orientation.

right, it isn't. but someone's opinion on something can and mostly will, change.

your point on that is true, but just because you have it in mind really doesn't mean you need to say it
because to be honest? not all of us want to hear it.

Well its sorta true..

People who think gays are sick and sinners are obviously sick themselves.

How is being who you are sick?

I'm sorry if I offended you.

I was greatly offended aswell.


Not all Christians are the same of course.

But those who shame gays for being who they are, are sorta rude and sick themselves.

.3. Well I'm not lesbian or gay.

I'm straight.

I support gay equality because they don't deserve treatment like that.

Being gay isnt a choice.

Would you choose to be ridiculed and bullied untill suicide because of how you are?

They can help liking the same gender.

They were born that way, and its perfectly normal.

Many other species on this planet show homosexual behavior besides humans.

The person who said WHAT Do YOU MEEEAN WHY NOT??? Ever heard of the Bible?? SMH ........ The bible has been used billions of times in that way. In the U.S. separation of church and state is still there. And marriage well marriage is a social union or legal contract between people not just a man and a woman. The definition of marriage varies according to different cultures. So the bible marriage way isnt the only way to get married so they can stop treating there like its the only special marriage way. It time to let gays have all there rights come on people we have problems to worry about gay isnt a problem.

Agreed!
Damn, my family has gone far enough to abuse and harassment against me. And talk bad about anyone who is gay. Apparently having a girlfriend means I'm "crazy and need to go back to the mental hospital". I'm almost 19, and still treated like a little kid. :/
I normally support all religions, but when they feel they must shove what they believe down other people's throats, I strongly feel that is wrong.
Since when is it ok to bully someone and mistreat them because you disagree with them?
People say the Bible says it's wrong, so you must shun them or whatever.
Do they even realize the Bible was used to say black people were evil too? The Bible has also been used to lie, cheat, steal, hell even murder millions of people.
Yet no one notices that. And the ones that do, keep it on the down low. Before any religious extremists go around judging, they need to fix their "sins" first.

I agree with you, I personally think that the bible is just to get people who had no prior knowledge of life (or anything for that mannor) to have something to think about, but it does have many many flaws. I scraed my best friend when I first met her because her preacher told their church that athiests worshipped Satan.

Haha, that's amusing. I have heard that before too. It's because Christians can't comprehend the fact that not everyone follows any part of their religion. They are in a single minded thought process that if it isn't God, it MUST be Satan.

Even if you are Christian and feel homosexuality is a sin, since when is it okay to judge sinners? Aren't we all sinners? It isn't our job as humans to judge people in any way, especially if it involves prejudice and ostracizing. Leave it up to God if that's your belief.

I wasn't saying you specifically were judging, it's good you don't judge. If only everyone could refrain from judging then maybe it wouldn't be an issue.
It's still not up to you to tell people how to live their lives, even in the name of God. You can know having sex outside of marriage is a sin, but you can't stop people from doing it. Same goes with homosexuality. If you see this as a sin the most you should do is hope or pray that these sinners will repent, which is what it takes in Christianity to get into heaven, right? That's the most you as a person have a right to do when it comes to interfering with the lives of others.

Since when was marriage a right? I was under the impression that marriage was dependent on your particular religion. Age, number and gender of spouses has been based on the religion. If my religion doesn't believe in gay marriage then why should my church be forced by the government to allow them to marry?

Tolerance does not equal acceptance. I will tolerate those that choose to be gay and hate the sin and not the sinner but that doesn't mean it gives you the right to steam role my beliefs.

Your church should be forced to allow them to marry because your church shouldn't have any say on who cannot marry who. Or whom, sorry for my incorrect grammer.

........... You do realize what you just said right? That only your and gay activists opinions or wants matter.

It's like telling me that I shouldn't have any say in who kills who and I should just let someone kill me.

You don't seem to realize what it was I said in my last post. I said that the laws of our church say that being gay is a sin and should be repented for. Therefore our church has no obligation to marry them because it doesn't follow the religion.

If a gay person wants to get married then they should find a religion that supports it in order to do so instead of forcing one to adhere to their opinions.
