Gay rights are equal rights, the end! That would have been an A+ paper, OP!
Fair point, 47... I don't care what people think about the legality of non-heterosexual marriage (personally pro-equal rights), but what really pisses me of is when people say it's "wrong to be gay." They were born that way and bullying people because they're gay is morally equivalent to bullying people because of their skin color, gender, or disability/disorder. If people could "choose to be gay," I doubt anyone would, simply because it's not the norm and there aren't exactly any advantages of it. Just my opinion; believe what you want, but don't hate. It's what Jesus Christ wanted.
Because who gives a shit whether you can write as long as you can regurgitate the opinions of others. And @52 and others, my university had some filters as well. But they were very limited. I ran into the same issue while researching for a paper on nuclear power plants (for terrorist/extremist content).
I've observed that homosexuality is very much like alcoholism. It probably has genetic origins but is triggered by certain traumas at a young age, or simply by other environmental factors. Even though this means it's not their choice or fault for having homosexual attractions, it does not mean it is "right" or "good" for them to indulge in them. It would be like telling an alcoholic to drink to his heart's content because "he shouldn't deny who he is" or "he should be himself". But as for rights, gays already have equal rights. They can vote, they aren't segregated, they even have their gay pride parades where they wear immodest clothing in public. Treating them as almost as an oppressed "racial group" is really downplaying the ACTUAL oppression of the African Americans and other racial minorities in our history. As for marriage itself, this is all just an attempt to destroy the institution of marriage. The gay rights activists see marriage as a symbol of heterosexual oppression, and they seek to pervert it or remove it entirely. Read it for yourself from Masha Gessen, a lesbian journalist. This gay rights push for "marriage equality" isn't as many think it is.
My previous comment was not "shocking or hateful about other users" nor did it say that the post was fake nor did it include any "TXT language". Those are the only guidelines you moderators are to abide by according to your site, and yet you delete my comment for it being "ranty nonsense". I have a feeling you simply disagree with my opinion and saw fit to remove my comment to remove all contrary opinions, as there are many others on this comment thread that thoroughly explained their opinions.
Ugh. It truly disgusts me when people say that you don't have the right to an opinion. Ever heard of the constitution? I agree with you on gay rights, but it's rather sick when you attempt to deprive a person of their opinion. Is that not similar to those who hate gay people?
exactly #39. everyone, this is NOT AMERICA. this is a site on the world wide web, so you cant apply all US laws and constitutions to this site. and if everyones entitled to their own opinion, that means people are entitled to argue with it and say its wrong. that being said, if you are against gay rights you are fucked and i wish YOU were illegal.
I am honestly indifferent on the gay rights issue, but comments like 16 piss me off. get the hell off your high horse. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, even if you're not in agreement with it. shouting (texting?) people down over percived slights makes you look like an ass.
56 is right. Call us bigots, retards, anything you want, but as actually one of my atheist friends said, "your religion/opinion is like a dick. It's ok to have one, and you can look at it all you want, but don't wave it around in public, and don't shove it down people's throats." I'm a Christian, and I've found this one of his best statements. I've found lately that the gay rights movement has become more abusive and severe than the "anti-gay" movement. One of my friends, when some gays went to chick fil a, was molested by someone who was gay, and when he denied being gay he was called scum. The police couldn't have done anything because they would most likely be sued. I may not be for gay rights, but that doesn't mean I hate everything. Thank you for your time.
Never leave work until the last minute OP. Allow time for unexpected crisis.
I always work best at the last minute, however I see where you're coming from because last Friday I was trying to finish coursework that was 50% of my grade the night before it was due, noticed I had 7% battery aand my charger died. Completely gone, no power at all. I tried to print what I had done and my laptop battery died half way through. I'm not ashamed to admit that I cried.
Yeah, same-sex and homosexual have the word "sex" in them so that's a total inconvenience... The filters at my school block Huffington Post because it has "huff".
