Here it is:
"Why is it that, as a culture, we are more comfortable seeing two men holding guns than holding hands?" - Ernest Gaines
We would like to know who really believes in gay rights on LiveJournal. There is no bribe of a miracle or anything like that. If you truly believe in gay rights, then repost this and title the post as "Gay Rights". If you don't believe in gay rights, then just ignore this. Thanks.
I believe that people's rights do not depend on things about that person that they did not choose and cannot change. That means that a gay man should be able to marry his partner, just as a straight man can. That means that a person's sexual orientation should not enter into any other decisions that others make about them (aside from an invitation to join them for sex).
Like foolscap001, I object to the "post this or you're a bigot" tone of the meme. I also object to the idea that we should not be comfortable seeing two men holding guns, as well. This is another example of the left-wing idea that it's okkay to hate gun owners. It's also implying that gay men should not own guns, in particular; the Pink Pistols would disagree with that idea. Thus, like foolscap001, I am not posting it as originally intended.
