    I'll bet our enemies are just shaking in their boots.

    I wonder what the Russian Spetsnaz think about this?

    Now we just need to get rid of the unconstitutional garbage that is DOMA

    Right after they're denied the right to serve openly, get married, etc. and have to fight through incredible hate to prove their worthiness as equal human beings.

    Pride events, as I see them, aren't so much about being proud to be gay, as they are about being proud of the accomplishments they have made in their struggle for equal treatment under the law ... you know, kinda like the constitution says

    Maybe the Pentagon can hold one of those contests where men dress as women and the audience tries to tell which are men and which are real women.

    Or they can march through the halls of the pentagon in those black leather pants with the seat missing.

    They can have BJ contests.
    Award medals to all the winners.

    There's lots of things they can do to celebrate gay pride.

    Ignorant nonsense like that is exactly what I'm talking about. Thanks for proving my point

    Yes, I am a gay man. I'm also a disabled Vet, but I guess that doesn't count because of the simple fact that I'm gay, right? My service to this country "didn't count"?
    In your eyes, I shouldn't have had the opportunity to serve my country in the first place, much less be treated like a human being afterward. Is that right?

    It counts for the great majority of us, sir. Those not so blinded by hate as to forget what being American is. Thank you for your service.

    I'm 23, and in year 6 of 7 of college in a very conservative state. I can tell you, even here, the virulent anti-gay group is getting massively smaller the younger you examine demographics. In my social circles, hating gay people and denying their rights is the disgusting and un-American behavior, not being LGBT. A great shooting buddy of mine is a gay man who has doubtlessly donated far more to Second Amendment causes than "pro-freedom" folks on this board who would happily strip his rights away just like black folks were second class in the 1950s and pretend not to see the similarities.

    It gets better. My generation will do better. And the one after mine better still. Past generations worked harder and fought more valiantly, yours included, but mine wins clear as a bell one regard. We're really bad at saying we're patriotic Americans, then turning our backs on blatantly unconstitutional inequality. We're bad at intolerance.

    *salute*

    Thank you, it was truly an honor to serve with the outstanding Americans I served with.

    First Team!

    This is pretty much my arguement for any of the various minority type things always being thrown in our faces.

    Now regardless of my opinions on the topic, nobody needs to be disrespected here. Id appreciate it if people would stop being so rude to each other on this forum. I don't think anyone comes here because they want people to make them feel bad about themselves. I don't want to feel bad, so I try not to make mean comments about other people if I can avoid it.

    I agree with you, all of these (seemingly constant) minority celebrations do get a little tiring sometimes.

    It'd be nice if we were a more cohesive society, instead of constantly breaking people up into groups.

    ...Except for Chevy lovers and their sympathizers, screw them

    These "pride" events are put on to do one thing. To throw the repugnant homosexual lifestyle in the face of straight people and they DEMAND that we accept it.

    The more they do this the more straight people resent them, IMO. Homosexuals say they are just like straight people but you wouldn't know it by the way they dress and act when participating in their parades.
