    This is in the U.K. Could've sworn they were talking about San Francisco.

    Coming soon to the U.S.?

    This makes me a tad uncomfy, chanel. It is true most straight people (for all I know, most GLBT people as well) are rather ignorant of the history of the Gay Rights Movement. How many people do you know who can link up gay WW II vets and modern "leather folk"?

    But I dun see how such things can be taught in public schools without delving into the sexual practices of GLBT people. And not that I think all such practices are deviant -- in fact, I'd characterize hardly anything two consenting adults do as "deviant" -- still, it is outre' to many people and since it is not linked to reproduction, I dun see the necessity for it.

    Mebbe I'm just being overly fussy. You dun actually need to understand the mechanics of gay sex to grasp the fundamentals of the Stonewall Riots. You dun need to grasp surrogacy to understand same sex parents. Etc.

    It is nice of the UK to go first and get this all squared away before we Americans have to tackle it, I must say.

    I fully support giving the LGBT movement. In fact, I think we should add a $3 bill to our currency and put the LGBT logo in place of a face on it. However, I am open to putting Elton John or RuPaul image on it as well.

    The % of gays is less than 3% of the pop.

    just how much catering do people need?

    What about the left handed people? where's the stories about thier heroism?
    Gapped teeth, the horrors of having a natural gap in your mouth
    Hairlips
    Big noses
    etc
    etc
    ad nausium

    LGBT is a sexuality not a race right?

    And if it does, who cares. They won't force you to be gay that month, and it really won't affect your life any.

    Stop it------people are unable to grasp the concept of not showing pity for every SOB in the world that they think got a raw deal. White guilt never ends.
