    I can only imagine the kind of emotional trauma some gays must go through. Hateful rhetoric being spewed out from religious leaders, politicians, and often their own families.

    Monsters aren't born. They're made.

    Why would gay people be immune to having nuts among them? It sure doesn't help when you have a ******** of politicians working and speaking out against your rights, some clergy who damn them to hell publicly, a quarter the population that hates them and the fact that they can be fired from their job because of who they are in a ridiculous number of states.

    Make a single anti-gay tweet and its national news. Preach regular virulent anti-gay sermons from an Orlando mosque and--LOOK! A SQUIRREL!!

    I can understand that, but WHY take it out on their own communities?

    Possibly because it is a reminder to them of their own "impurity"?

    Tell me honestly: did you give a rats *** when multiple [former] GOP candidates attended the virulent anti-gay sermon from a Chrisitan pastor last year?

    Interesting. James Wesley Howell is gay himself, and a gun enthusiast.


    Armed man arrested in California wasn't allowed to have guns

    http://bigstory.ap.org/article/e88b...ndiana-man-arrested-california-guns-chemicals

    Twice within four days last October he was accused of pulling a gun and making threats. The first incident involved Howell's then-boyfriend and the second a neighbor, identified in police records as Jeremy Hebert.

    Howell's ex-boyfriend, Richard Hambrick, described Howell as "explosive."

    "He's got a lot of anger problems," Hambrick said.​


    Perhaps he traveled to California to peacefully attend the pride event and brought his guns as protection since he was traveling out of state across the country and felt he needed to be armed to feel safe, as many gun owners and enthusiasts often do.

    I already explained that...perhaps they couldn't get dates. The gay community doesn't like to talk about this, but a lot of people are marginalized even within our own community. Not butch enough. Not hot enough. Not muscled enough...it can be very superficial sometimes. So it really wouldn't surprise me if such rejection is where some of this comes from.

    You make way too many excuses for the guy.

    I get what you're saying but that certainly isn't just a gay thing. I think that's just a dating thing. We just have a smaller pool to choose from so it seems more prevalent.

    As for gay people turning against their own, it's ripe for an interesting discussion.

    I would start with societal reasons, including being made to feel ashamed and different at a young age. How many "homophobic" politicians have gotten caught with their pants down so to speak? There is also a history of gay bashing done by people still coming to terms with their own sexuality. I said this in another thread, but it's fighting something they are scared to become themselves.

    This is why Pride events and positive representation in TV and movies is so important. They're meant to show people that we're not as different or scary as we're made out to be.
