The biggest thing about gay marriage is that "Marriage" has more bennefits than a "Cival Union". Gay people just want to be equal and have the same bennefits.
I am okay with people not agreeing with me... But I don't want them TELLING me to do something, or I am doing something wrong in my life.
Just the other day, I was walking around town, just walking down the street, holding my girlfriends hand and someone started calling out "Faggot!"
You can't even imagine how I felt... So embarresed! Ashamed! I wanted to go home and cry :( And yes I have had suicidal thoughts because of other people.. But my girlfriend squezzed my hand and smiled at me and said its okay... I almost cried because of the reliefe I got from 1 person! Just one saying everything is okay :)
I am still sensitive on the topic because a lot of people around me don't approve of me having a girlfriend... My own mother hates it...
Think about when non-horse people say all horse people are cruel and horrible... It makes you mad and not matter how much explaining you do, you can't make them stupid people understand! Some people you can educate... Now I just save my breath and walk away.
So just for people who don't agree with Homosexuality... Please be respectful! And polite.. It is okay to voice your oppinion but please don't say we are not human, that we do not deserve the same rights or to get married so we can be equal and have the same bennefits that Heterosexual people get to have.
And for people that are okay with Homosexuals, Thanks you :) Your support means a lot to me and others :) And I do believe one day all homophobia will be gone.
I also agree with the public displays of affection... I love to see people holding hands and giving small kisses, it just shows there is still love on this earth :) But I don't agree with inappropreit touching or making out in public. Also... religion gets brought up in almost every topic, but please try to leave it out as it does't have anything to do with the OP question.
