Now THAT'S unbelievable.
I was saying that society should be more accepting of gay people in general, not that they should be accepted more than other groups.
Go back to stormfront. You've shown your colors, and I'm done with you.
Precisely, Goddess. That was my point.
2) Black Americans face far higher rates of poverty, therefore it is unsurprising that, on a per capita basis, they receive a higher proportion of welfare services.
3) That's just idiotic.
4) White American males are often cast as the poster boy for gun violence because, frankly, white males commit the vast majority of firearm related crimes. Most of the recent mass murderers have been white males.
5) The reverse is much more often true. Ex: Vidor, Texas.
6) While you know nothing about me, I can surmise a few things about you. You are a racist and a homophobe, otherwise known as a bigot. The term "white race" is used almost exclusively by white supremacists. The fear that the "white race" is facing genocide is a clear indicator of racism. The fact is, there is no "white race" or "black race" or "asian race". Humanity is made up of a wide variety of ethnicities that cannot be broken down by "race". Race is not even a valid term, biologically speaking.
For the record, I am a 43 year old white male. I have lived in majority black areas and majority hispanic areas, and I have seen first hand the barriers they face in achieving the so-called American dream.
Being attacked is not the same as being persecuted. You have not been denied a loan on the sole basis that you are a white male. You have not been barred from staying in a hotel because you are a white male. You have not been told you can't marry your life partner because you are a strait white male. You have not been denied a job because you are a straight white male. You have not been denied a raise or paid less than others for the same work because you are a straight white male.
Because you are a straight white male, you get privileged over others. That is the exact opposite of persecution. You can deny that all you like, but it's true.
First of all, that's not true. Straight white American males are not persecuted in any way. Secondly, you think we shouldn't be more accepting of gay people simply because other people are persecuted also? Nice.
When I tire of humanity and its slings and arrows, im labeled anti-social.
Perhaps some self reflection could help you here.
When Gays do it, its because they are persecuted and we should all be more understanding of the plight of the gays.
That is exactly right; they are, and we should.
I bought Kelly Link's Stranger Things Happen on dead tree media a while back, and I thought it was fantastic. This bundle is worth it for that title alone.
"postbiological age" - He's not just an artist, he's a bullshit artist.
You mean he is a stand-up philosopher.
... as government less and less appears to be capable of solving the big social and economic problems of our time.
It probably has something to do with putting people in charge of government who believe that government can do nothing right. It's fucking ridiculous. You would have to be a complete moron to put in someone into any position of authority or control in a company if they believed that said company could do nothing right. It'd be foolish. Yet that is the very thing that conservatives are doing with our government.
"Government is the problem! Vote for me and I'll prove it!"
