Dude, please don't compare a person coming out of the closet to what black people have gone through. That's just plain ignorant. Next you will be comparing Michael Sam to Jackie Robinson. Don't even think about going there.
What is the difference in discrimnation, though? They're both bad. Homosexuals have been ostricized from most societies for centuries.
Could you be any more ignorant? Being black and ostricized by society or gay or even perceived gay, is the same kind of discrimination. The fact is Western society is just more accustomed to the slave trade and how it affected the development of Western society in terms of it being more recent and more tangible and how this country has taken an embarrassing amount of time to even attempt to treat blacks equally.
But, how is that really any different than pinning someone as "gay" or not accepting someone as gay? It's the same thing as not accepting someone as black. As if each can control how they come out of the womb? Of course not!
Discrimination is discrimination. This is like saying the Holocaust in Germany is not as bad as lynchings here in this country. It's all bad. It's the same flippin' thing. Isolating a minority group, discriminating and soemtimes arresting or killing those people.
Salem Witch Trials. That was basically an anti-lesbian movement in a Puritanical society.
Joan of Arc. Lesbian! Burn her up! I am afraid of a woman who is strong and he must be a lesbian! lol
It's all the same.
No point in playing semantics here. As a species, we are responsible for this and it's embarrassing that discrimination against women, gays or minority groups, including blacks, is considered acceptable by some people who race to the voting booths in this day and age.
Like your buddy Babe, for example. He believes women should be barefoot and pregnant and gays discriminated against because he and his right wing nutties trancscirbed the bible as Jesus hating gays. lmao
All bad. All of it.
Read the part I have in bold.Now what are you talking about?Salem witch was about being possed .
+11.. ur now an HONORARY comrade!
