I'd love to mind my own business, but it's difficult to do so when a group more concerned with its group identity based on its sexual orientation won't allow me to not pay attention to what they're doing by parading around in costumes (or lack thereof) that take their orientation to the extreme.
I agree completely. Parading around in costumes (or lack thereof) that take their orientation to the extreme. Shocking I tell you! Image: http://www.philebrity.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/philebrigras.jpg
In a strictly logical perspective, if a group wants to be taken seriously, keep the battle for the rights desired in the courtroom or on a respectable stage, and don't take the feared behaviors to the extreme. It's not helping anything, least of all that group's cause.
Right. They should know their place and stop being uppity. Isn't that how things were in Georgia not too long ago?
Besides equal rights under the law, the point of of the gay rights movement is not to hide in the closet and fit in the box that conforms to your morality.
I was talking to Texan at the poker table tonight and we discussed how stupid Texas is to allow horse and dog racing and the lotto but not gambling because gambling is immoral. As if horse and dog racing and and the lotto aren't gambling. And whose business is it if someone wants to play poker rather than bet on horses.
Similarly, if gay men want to prance around on the beach wearing silly costumes once a year in Pensacola and do other "extreme" things, how is that different than straight people doing the exact same thing at Mardi Gras? And whose business is it anyway?
Worry about your own life and stop judging, Judy.
