    I was posting on two different threads about gay issues and both of them got locked, or closed.

    What's the deal? I've pretty much gathered that this board leans towards the conservative side, but can the mods just lock a thread because they don't like the direction it's taking?

    If we're not supposed to talk about gay politics then maybe it should be mentioned in the rules or something.

    It was pressured to be gay by:

    Lack of a father-figure
    Liberal Teachers/Counselors
    An uncle who molested it.

    What the hell you guys have nothin else to talk about except gays????

    I know they are different from us but they jus look normal and try to integrate with the rest of us. Why reserve a separate topic for them or for that matter just start a topic about them??????????

    From what I can tell, some people don't like conservatives discussing gayness so much, so they asked for the topic to be confined to one forum. They got their wish. I posted elsewhere that it is by nature an overlapping topic (i.e. overlapping with politics when discussing Foley), but to no avail.

    I don't think it was the fact that people didn't like conservatives talking about homosexuality. It was more the fact that if the thread came anywhere near to homosexuality, the original topic was lost and homosexuality became the issue. The are several facets to the Foleys case for example. If one wants to talk about the homosexual aspect of it, they can use that forum now.

    For the record, since I was the one who semi-facetiously asked for a new forum to be created on the subject, it's not that conservatives discuss gayness so much. It's that almost every topic somehow or another gets turned into a gay rant. And sometimes those rants are not discussions, but just spewing. So that was my way of saying, "hey is this topic REALLY so important to so many people"?

    Anyway it doesn't look like the moderators created a new topic, they just added "Lifestyle" to the Health topic. Lifestyle is a broad term which encompasses a lot more than sexual preference.
