charlitos saidWe are not really gonna make any difference claiming our rights in a gay forum...it might help you to feel better when you finally say everything you have inside that is pissing you off. If you want to do something then DO something, in the right places and the right people. Realjock will be useful to find support but if you want to make a difference, stop complaining in a gay website and go outside and F&*# make a difference.
Making a difference starts with a discussion. It helps find answers. And believe me I'm going to print all the stats of who voted yes on 8 onto a t-shirt, with #1 being regular church goers, and #2 being black people. Maybe that will strike some nerves.
Meanwhile, do us all a favor and open up a can of kill yourself. Nothing is more annoying than some ass-bandit spewing the typical fallacy "omg stop complaining and do something." You're more annoying than Sarah Palin's vagina.
sexysamer saidIt is not only black or Mormons voted yes on Prop. 8. Many other anti-gay marriage people in all race and all different religions. Jakebenson, I am jsut curious why do you care? You are thinking about getting marry to someone?
Regular church goers, Mormons, and to a slightly lesser extent black people are in the lead. Latinos and Asians to a MUCH lesser extent. There's already threads on the Mormons so I started one on blacks. It's typical for Mormons to hate on gays, but wtf why blacks?
I don't plan on marrying anyone. I'm a fucking slut. But my close friend wants to marry his boyfriend. So I'm fighting for his rights. This isn't about me.
pelotudo87 saidAs a person of mixed race myself, I think it goes back to how during slave times there was so much faith in Christianity, and that God would lead them out of bondage. Church is still a very important part of African-American culture, and in the church-going demographic, there is alot of anti-gay sentiment.
Exactly, thanks for bringing that up. Its a very good point. If only many of these guys understood that.
While this helps me understand WHY the majority of black people voted gay marriage down, the church being part of black culture because whites forced it down their throats during slavery doesn't justify why blacks voted gay marriage down.
GQguy2 saidI think most gay people not all are upset prop 8 didn't pass in California, but this whole thing of pitting gay whites against gay blacks and latinos won't help the cause at all.
I didn't mean to make this whites against blacks in the gay community and I apologize if any black people in this forum think I'm blaming them because I'm not. I feel like ALL gay minorities are on the right side on this issue. I am EXCLUSIVELY referring to STRAIGHT black people in my rant. I'm glad people are arguing. It gets racial tension out in the open instead of keeping it covert.
And why did it take us so long to elect our first black president?
Because Obama belongs to the first generation of black people who were raised without any laws oppressing his people. For this same reason, it will be a good 30-50 years until a gay person is elected as president.
