I see where you're coming from and I can tell you honestly, you're being a little judgemental. Now before I start, I want you to note that I am not racist or hateful of any group or ethnicity. I base my opinions of people based on how I perceive them acting, and not by what history tells me.
Now first off, there are reasons that different people became hateful of one another, but those reasons are now very much old. For example, just because Napolean invaded Russia long long ago, its not a reason for Russians to hate the French today. Ages have past, people get over it, it's a new world.mookalovesgloop wrote:it seems to me that they're trying to make light of history by blurring the lines and adding irrelevant issues to the FACTS...but maybe it's just me...thoughts?
The thing is, that in today's society, so many black people use the times of slavery as an excuse to be hateful and racist towards white people. By 'blurring the lines' and forgetting the past, you essentially level the playing field for everyone. If no one remembers the times of slavery, how are blacks supposed to get angry over it? Sure it's history and all, but it was painful back then, and I argue that it's no less painful today. We should really just get over it now.mookalovesgloop wrote:a homosexual person has the option to discontinue their way of living or even just hide it from general knowledge and their problems are solved
That is not entirely true. If that person ever told his friends or family of it, then he is branded gay by them for his life. Sometimes these people might even post such facts on the internet, where it remains for eternity. Also, it is fairly common for gay people to distribute STD's (I forget the statistics, but a very LARGE percentage of HIV carriers are homosexual), which can harm them for ages.mookalovesgloop wrote:i can't think of a single instance during the jim crow era when one of my coal-black forbears ever had the option to simply stop being a second class citizen by reason of his melanin levels...

I can understand the jim crow era, but come on. Not everyone is hateful of everyone else in this era. I personally never hate anyone until I have gotten to know them well enough to hate them. Although there are white people that curse at black people for being black, always remember that there are also black people that curse at white people for being white.
I know that this is a very difficult part of ethics and has been so for centuries for ages, but it's not wise to poor salt into old wounds.

of course the media outlets pretend that it's a shock and an outrage when these things are brought to the surface but the truth is that by and large the opinions of the western majority towards non-whites <<----note, non-white, not just blacks-- never changed!
my point is that it's unfair to the people who risked brutalization, imprisonment, and humiliation for no reason other than the complexion they were born with to compare what they suffered and strove for to a group of people whose woes are the direct result of a lifestyle that they choose to live and frankly, is becoming more mainstream with each passing day
our crime was that of demanding to be treated like human beings...i've never heard of a single instance of a homosexual being thrown in jail for eating at a particular restaurant, sitting in the front of the bus, or seen them fire hosed and have dogs released on them at a pride rally...
I suspect the problem lies with your interpretation that they choose to be gay that makes it so different. and that they could potentially hide it from strangers
The fact is that homosexuals do not have the same rights as heterosexual people. The most obvious example being the right to marry. While you might say that seems like a very small issue, the same was thought about the right to vote or prettymuch any right that was denied to select groups of people in the past.

wikipedia wrote:No species has been found in which homosexual behaviour has not been shown to exist, with the exception of species that never have sex at all, such as sea urchins and aphis. Moreover, a part of the animal kingdom is hermaphroditic, truly bisexual. For them, homosexuality is not an issue.(20)

unless of course, you mean to suggest that homosexuals DON'T have a say in whether they will be gay or not...as though it is some kind of disorder (though there is evidence which suggests this may indeed be the case, consider those who have overcome their homosexual desires through self-solicited psychological counseling)
Wikipedia wrote:Male Drosophila melanogaster flies bearing two copies of a mutant allele in the fruitless gene court and attempt to mate exclusively with other males.(18) The genetic basis of animal homosexuality has been studied in the fly Drosophila melanogaster.(84) Here, multiple genes have been identified that can cause homosexual courtship and mating.(85) These genes are thought to control behavior through pheromones as well as altering the structure of the animal's brains.(86)(87) These studies have also investigated the influence of environment on the likelihood of flies displaying homosexual behavior.(88)(89)

And isn't that...the point of creating life, to have it somehow be like you.. only better?
So will homosexuals or creators of alternative life forms really have created life?
a virus or worse a baby is something you're stuck with for life
Did you just call an admin a faggot and get away with it? Well played.
