This I'll never be sorry for
Having my own opinion
Being different from other people
Telling someone that they're wrong
Demanding facts when somoene tries to change my opinion or prove me wrong
Winning political debates in the chat room (and I did rather easily)
Well, for everyone who forgot why Myr closed The Soapbox, if you were just in chat with me, you now know why
I'm never going to let someone tell me that my opinions are wrong without an argument, and then have them make statements they can't back up with facts. If you want to say someone did something, go ahead. But I wont believe you unless you can provide proof.
Things got pretty weird in the chatroom tonight, but who cares?? I'm happy it happened, because I don;t want people to think Im just some dumb kid who cant stand up for himself in a political debate. Everyone just assumes that because I'm gay that I'm automatically supposed to be against our president. Well guess what.........that's not going to happen. I hate stereotypes, and one of the worst ones is that gay=democrat. What have the dems done to earn the support of the gay community?? Have they come out and said they would legalize gay marriage across the nation?? Did they oppose the Defense of marriage act?? Did the democrat who ran for president in 2004 say he wasn't opposed to gay marriage?? It's pathetic, and so is any self respecting gay person who supports the democrats or the republicans.
As far as the president goes, I don't support him either when it comes to gay rights and abortion. he's wrong about gay marriage, and the fact that he says he wants to use the constitution to ban gay marriage shows how little he knows about the constitution. The purpose of the constitution is to limit the power of the federal government, not the people that the federal government serves. Of course, this is the same idiot who said that the United States is a democracy. We aren't a democracy. We're a constitutional republic. It's disgusting that our own president doesnt even know that.
My point is that as gay Americans, we shouldn't be supporting ether party. Civil Unions are worse than a ban on gay marriage as far as Im concerned because they say that we're "seperate but equal". Sorry, but that's discrimination. The same type of discrimination that blacks went through in the 50's and 60's. It was wrong then, and it's wrong now. I just wish that the gay community had someone like Martin Luther King to wake us up and make us stand up for our rights. We have the right to marry, and we have the right to live free of harrassment and discrimination by our president and congress.
Ok, I'm off my rant now. I just get so upset when ignorant idiots try to say that Bush and the republicans are the only ones who hold us down. It's basically turning the other way while the dems do it too.
