    Hi guys,

    Doing some thinking (it's a miracle) - do/have you ever felt sad/negative as a result of anti-gay policy (DADT/Marriage) and its socio-political justifications?

    "Justification" would imply there is something right about limiting a Peoples Inalienable Rights cause their religious, separate from State, views tell them so. It's sad in a *watching someone repeatedly make stupid choices* way, but not sad like a pity party, cause they haven't taken anything away, they just "DEFINED" it differently for themselves. I'll still be a gay man as I am, and hell if anyone else has the balls to say something to me about it, with their ignorant 2cent opinions.
    Am I angry? No. I'm going to live as I want see it written out in the Constitution and not let anyone define how I am to be happy. Homosexuality can't be accepted as normal if we too are acting like it's a crime. That mentality GIVES the Far-right the playing field they want. Don't give it to them in your professional life, or your personal one. DADT is gone. Let us act as if victory is to mean something to US if we have it. Not wait for a handout from someone who has taken us by the balls.

    I was going to say: Angry, yes. Sad, yes. BUT I just found out that Rick Santorum is dropping out of the republican race. Now I'm encouraged.

    Used to get very angry about it and still do but much less so. I realize that things are going in the right direction. Do things to help move it along is productive.

    Just getting angry is pointless. Chanel your anger into something productive. (I could type channel...but this is gay advice, so I will say "Chanel your anger" instead...lol). Join a club. Vote. Protest. Write a letter. And sometimes the best thing you can do is to live your life well. Do work you like, live where you are happy, develop friendships and relationships. Keep yourself healthy.icon_biggrin.gif

    +1. Watched the news conference. Seems like a nice enough guy, BUT I am encouraged to know that our Constitutional Republic is no longer threatened by a Theocracy! (and yes, I am a believer).

    I'm happy that this impinges on my day-to-day life very little these days. With protections for sexual orientation "read into" Canada's Charter of Rights and Freedoms by the Supreme Court of Canada, even our Conservative Party of Canada federal government avoids discriminatory policy making.

    But yeah, remembering to before that era began... it made me both sad and angry at the time.
