I wasn't implying a comparison. I don't have much to compare with: this is the only generation I've experienced.

I just want to know why gay people are the new blacks.

I guess it's like a trend, then, in a way: once it's run its course, it won't be hip to use the phrase anymore. People can be so strange.

What I was getting at with my question is that homophobia has existed throughout the history of our culture, and is considerably less common today than it used to be.  "Homophobia" is a modern term, because the idea that homosexuals are evil perverts used to be taken for granted to be true.  Sodomy used to be a felony in all 50 states.  It wasn't until the Stonewall riots in 1969 that that started to change, and it's only within the last decade that the Supreme Court finally ruled sodomy laws to be unconstitutional.  The fact that we've gone from that a few years ago to having gay marriage now legalized in four states is nothing short of remarkable.  Gays are "the new blacks" precisely because they have made progress.  It was never illegal in this country to be black.

Nobody has to like you because of your sexual preference, and forcing people to respect you is authoritarian. Homosexuality is an easy target but people also have no problem laughing at fat kids or making fun of retards either so cut it with the bullshit like there is some kind of fear involved in this, people are cruel and will find any weak link in your armor to get to you and that's the bottom line

Sure, but everyone knows it's not right to make fun of retards or to laugh at fat kids. Somehow it's more acceptable to tell gay people that they're "unnatural" and shouldn't be allowed to marry.

where do you get that idea from? Not everyone has a conscience and there is no such thing as a universal moral standard and if there were not everyone would agree with it anyways.

No, there's no universal moral standard, but there's a moral standard generated by the society you live in. Our moral standard has improved a lot over the last 50 years with respect to racism or making fun of retarded kids, but it seems to be lagging behind when it comes to gay people.

Hating Bush is as bad as hating gays.  If people would take a second and give it a little thought, You would find that homosexuals are psychologically damaged. An overwhelming percent were molested and abused as children, are alcoholics/addicts, serious behaviour problems, molest and abuse others usually children, ...  .  It is natures way to have male and female, and to have these opposites attract.  It is abnormal to have sexual contact with the same sex.  Don't confuse equal rights, and a serious psychological problem.  Except for marriage there is no reason to restrict the rights of homosexuals.  By Kicking them to the curb and ignoring their needs, we isolate them and refuse to give them the help they need.  This is a very emotionally charged subject, and I am in no way suggesting any prejudice is justified.

i saw a commercial the other day...where some kid says "that's so gay"

and some black comedian says something like "do you know what you're saying when you use the word gay like that?"

i've got to admit i've used the term "gay" to mean other things...and i know it's not PC.....but....come on....words are just words.

No.

Hating a group of people for broad reasons not applicable to most of them is not the same as hating a single individual whose behavior can be assigned solely to them.

I knew homosexuals were persecuted much worse in the past. I guess I still can't believe that it was completely acceptable (and expected) to hate for such a lame reason.

I didn't know the Supreme Court ruling in the U.S. was so recent, though. Makes me wonder what kind of leaps we'll take between my generation and the next. Exponential times, and all. :eek:

I don't think that wording rings true. Evolution doesn't 'wish' anything: evolution is just the on-going result of a big cluster-fuck. There is no 'best,' only best suited to the environment. Sometimes that means the physically weakest, mentally slowest, smelliest, ugliest creatures steal your girl because they have Ferraris. :mad2:

Talk of gene pools is especially irrelevant recently, with the advent of artificial insemination.

And in any case, that reasoning doesn't make sense. Evolution doesn't have 'tools' to weed out the gene pool. It can't turn someone gay to stop them reproducing.

It doesn't offend me or anything: I'm not gay, and I'm sure most gay people have thick enough skins with all the BS they put up with. But I still think the negative use of words like 'gay' and 'fag' contributes to a subconscious fear and hatred of homosexuals.

Words are only words, but they still shape our worldview: if you associate 'gay' with 'bad' enough times, it's going to effect your opinions. None of us are immune to that kind of pattern strengthening.

I totally agree. I wouldn't like it if people started using "left-handed" to mean "bad". Even if they didn't actually have any problem with left-handed people, that connection is still being made.

It's one thing to simply enjoy a style of life that one enjoys, but it's another thing altogether to refer to another person's choice as "wrong" or to rationalize their behavior as being pathological or resulting from some sort of inadequacy or failing so as to create a sense of superiority or separation as yet another projection of a personal fear or control issue.
