Is Pay-to-Gay Really The Right Move?

Really sick of people trying to shove gay rights into other peoples mouth . Stop trying to get everyone to accept your kind and just live your life. who care if people don't accept your lifestyle how do you whine about not being accepted when you don't accept those that don't accept you...

I don't care who marries who or who kisses who and if your Gay SO WHAT! I don't care who you have sex with either. My Neighbors are Gay and do I care HELL NO just as long as they cut their friggin Grass their cool!

I don't go running around telling people I'm a Heterosexual so be Gay on your own time and Stop trying to use Gayness as a way to draw attention to yourself.

...and what the F does your sexual preference have to do with Video Games.....NOTHING!!!

To be fair, gay people have huge civil rights battles behind them, and still many large ones in front of them, just so they can take on basic civil contracts like marriage. If you want to adopt a kid in a democracy, it does matter what other people think of your way of life. People may not express their distaste of gay people directly to the gay people, but a large segment of, say, USA expresses their distaste in the voting both. So gay people who want to get married do have some awareness to spread, and some battles to fight.

Also, it's perfectly fine not to tolerate intolerance. I hope most would agree that hating black people is far less legitimate than hating racists. Even if hate is often counter-productive, hating hate is very often completely justified.

"how do you whine about not being accepted when you don't accept those that don't accept you..."

So by that logic, you accept racists? You're honestly asking someone to be tolerant of the intolerant?

That's a little backwards.

There is one thing that you disagree with people being gay, there is another where they are treated badly. Why is that a union between a man and a women gives more rights in society than two of the same gender?

It's none of our business how people live as long as it doesn't affect others, yet we impose restrictions on them?

Point being like vickers said perfectly well, being tolerant of intolerance isn't the solution.

However, I must say Pay-to-Gay is funny!

I think it is a good move. Remember, it isn't about parading around telling people you are gay. Same reason why sometimes it seems like black people and other minorities get more attention, it is to 'raise awareness' so-to-speak, to make it seem more normal so e eryone gets along better.

I'm in support of any group, race, religion getting more exposure. Everyone is equal, some people think otherwise. Good move, I think people will buy it whether or not they are gay.

I spat my drink out on my screen when I came across the heading. I thought it was so e screw-up lol.

Hmmm, would it matter?? What a silly comment. I read your other one as well, and it is so childish and ignorant. You do not have to be gay to agree with this move. It is something that I would call common sense and understanding. We all bleed red blood, we are all human, we are ALL equal. I'm just saying that this is a good move as any good move to 'normalize' something is good, as it teaches tolerance, something this world, and particularly the immature internet 'community' is lacking.

the people who makes this shit must be gay as they obviously like it enough to put in a game.

"Really sick of people trying to shove gay rights into other peoples mouth . Stop trying to get everyone to accept your kind and just live your life. who care if people don't accept your lifestyle how do you whine about not being accepted when you don't accept those that don't accept you...'

lol at least 8 gay people disagreed with your comment, and i mean they would have to be who else would disagree on something so obvious?

I'm not gay and I disagreed with his comment.

Sometimes the people who are most offended by homosexuality are the ones who need to do some serious soul searching. Oops, I said something that agrees with giving an oppressed group of people the right to get married. Gay rights help everyone move forward.

If you must live in denial, crawl back into your cave where civilized society can't hear your caveman grunts.

gays gaying it up on a server they have to pay for. lol.
They must really think that gays are f'ed in the head if they're pulling these type of shenanigans
cycofoo831  +   589d ago
Lol you guys say this shit is not a problem to you and you dont care what they do with eachother but let me tell you that they have very harsh realities for being homosexual that you havent experienced. for one- rights. they need to fight for their rights and acceptance otherwise fox and cnn (so callee gay professional psychologists) are gonna battle it out about gays and their rights.
