Default Homosexuality

Mods, please lock if this is against the rules, if it is not necessary, there is already one like this, or if this is a bad idea.

Well, a couple of days ago, I was watching the news. At one point, it turned to teenagers, whom were gay. They were being bullied for it. And their teachers gave them the blind eye. It said more teenagers are coming out as gay.

At one point, a boy that was gay hit on a male classmate. He became very angered by this. So, the next day, the classmate brought a gun to school. Witnesses say during class, he picked up the gun, and shot the gay boy, killing him.

I think it is wrong to bully homosexuals, just because they aren't straight. I have a bisexual friend, named Patricia.

I am straight, but it is sad to watch these teenagers get bullied for being homosexuals.....

I think I heard that news somewhere before. That is extremely sad, though.
They shouldn't be bullied if they're not straight, I agree.

Well, yeah. It's wrong to bully anyone. I'm straight as well, but if a gay guy hit on me, I wouldn't be mad. I'd just tell him that I wasn't that way and ask him not to do anything like that again. Simple as that. I get tired of a lot of guys and girls saying how bad homosexuals are. A lot of my friends are homosexual or bi, and if I had to choose between a straight guy or a gay guy as my friend, I would probably pick the gay guy, all depending on the people. They just tend to be nicer than straight people, but those are just my experiences. Same thing with, say, the military. If I was on the battlefield, I'd rather have a gay guy at my side in a battle than a straight guy. 'Nuff said, done monologueing , kthxbye.

Maybe this should be stickied. Seems to be a popular topic, and it might be worth a permanent place in his board, if only to prevent more threads like it being made.

Whenever I hit this board, there's always one homosexuality thread on the first page. I agree with you in saying we should have a homosexuality megathread.

Bullying isn't cool, no matter whether homosexuals, lesbians or straight are being subjected to it. Anyone who's stupid and immature enough to bully someone because his/her sexual orientation is different is socially inadequate.

Yup! That way we could save ourselves the trouble of constantly making new ones. Come to think of it, the religion thread could be stickied too...

I think it is wrong to bully homosexual people. I mean, it's just someone's preference. It's awful, because if you are homosexual, I imagine it would make you feel so socially insecure, and that just is'nt right.

I can't stand bullying full stop. It's everywhere.

And not really related to the bullying but there are so many teenage homosexual people that kill themselves because they think that they can choose or they think that it is a sin.

It's very sad that anyone gets bullied, but that's the way it always is. We're a country that stands on the ground of equality but someone is always being discriminated against and people will always be discriminated against. That's the way it is and always will be. The difference is that there are people like all of us who think that it's wrong, and we stand up for those people.

Hi all, generally speaking, popular threads get enough posts that there's no need to sticky them. Please just glance at the thread titles on page one before making a thread. There's already a homosexuality discussion.
