typical leftist bullshit. the people who say one's sexuality should not be an issue are the same people who INCESSANTLY make it an issue!! FUCK i hate leftists!!!!!!!
Re the vid hal posted - I don't like that PC rent-a-cause brand of 'leftist' who-shall-we-pander-to-this-week bullshit politics portrayed by the vid either, but I was a little stung by the line 'this makes me want to puke'. I'm probably doing hal a huge disservice by suspecting his motivations, but it just sounded a little ambiguous and I'd prefer that everybody knows where they stand.
Just to be clear, my sentiments had nothing to do with homosexuals in general... only the political correctness that is attached.
Don't ya just hate it when someone says, "Yeah, but I have a lot of friends who are gay," when the topic of homosexuality comes up. Well, I'll break my own self-imposed rule here - my best friend for many years was lesbian. We had a wonderful friendship, able to talk about anything under the sun, without fear of judgement. We were polar opposites on the political spectrum, but it made for fun and intellectual banter. We knew we were not going to change each others' opinion.
Unfortunately, our friendship waned, and eventually ceased to exist, mostly I feel because it just grew tiresome that, our discussions almost always eventually veered toward homosexual governmental policies, or how Republicans discriminate. It just grew old having homosexuality almost always somehow enter the conversation. Quite frankly, it didn't matter to me in the slightest; but just as I didn't feel it necessary to ever
discuss my heterosexuality with her, it became loathsome to have homosexuality or any of its ancillary agendas shoved in my face.
I think MV has it exactly correct - those who insist that one's sexuality should not be an issue, are the one's who most make it an issue. I'm all for equal treatment for everyone (allowing for certain exemptions should the occasion necessitate), which is why I rail against those who obtain special treatment, e.g. homosexual "pride" agendas, or "affirmative action."
Quite frankly, I welcome patriots into our military who are willing to sacrifice to maintain our freedom, irrespective of any condition which might make them part of a minority; but am equally angered by those who insist on being treated equal, shoving their "specialness" in my face.
