  1. I would never persocute gay people in any way, as at least some can't help it. But being in a gay/lesbian relationship is wrong. I'm Lutheran, and gay/lesbian relationships are against my religion as it says in the Bible that it's a sin. It also seems wrong to me.

    Christianity also states it is wrong. I'm Christian, and I was taught excessively that it is wrong.

    I don't think it's wrong. It's natural to let religion shape what you believe, but I don't let it force me to see something as diverse as the world in one way.


  2. I could go on if I were given an uninterrupted chance, but at this point, I will remove myself from this convo and ask that you guys allow me to do so. wink.gif

    I don't see how we can interrupt a post, to be honest with you. o.O

    But, otherwise, of course! You're free to remove yourself from a conversation if you feel like you're not getting anywhere or that it's time to retire your point. :3 Such is the way of discussion~


  3. Another example: electroshock therapy. They'd be strapped to a chair and literally electrocuted until they stopped showing signs of attraction to the same sex. And they had to be immobilized in their chairs because:

     

    1) they'd try to escape what is obviously torture, and

    2) the shocks were so powerful that, if they weren't strapped down, their muscles would contract to the point of breaking their bones.

     

    When they were released, most of them just went back into the closet.

    Yeah, that just legitimately makes me feel depressed. x.x The history of the reactions and actions taken against things like this are gruesome, and it makes me even more determined to help put an end to it today, because it still exists, just in a more modernized standard of doing things.

     

    You are blowing what I said way out of proportion. I have not 'fallen victim' to anything, and I said that I don't even like seeing strait people making out in public. Meaning things like that belong in a private place thank you very much.

    I also have gay friends, so I can deal.

    And I don't have to accept a concept if I don't want to.

    And I never said they needed to be slaughtered or they should die for being gay. As I said earlier, we are all human.

     

    Well.. now you're kind of contradicting yourself, here. Unless it's just me, but.. You were the one who said it was "in your face now" and you were a little shocked, etc. So naturally we'd assume that still goes about an hour later. o.o When you say that you "Aren't used to seeing something," we're going to assume that you likely know very little about the subject to be conversing about it seriously on a level with people who either actually read a ton about the cultural issues, or people who experience it/have grown up in a large place where it has almost always been a constant. You said you don't have to accept a concept if you don't want to, and you don't, but didn't you just say a while back that it was fine with you as long as they didn't force anything on you? Allowing them to be able to hold hands and be married/safe and equal is not effecting you. At least, I HOPE not, because if it is, I think we have a serious problem.

    You can't really stay with the claim "we are all human" if you aren't agreeing that we should therefore all be seen equal and have equal opportunity.


  4. ... Okay well here is what I think. You can be GLBT all you want. Personally, I'm strait, but if you want to go the other route, go on with your bad self. We are all human.

    But don't flaunt it. I don't like seeing a man and woman making out in public. Same goes for gay couples. If you want to get married, by all means it doesn't hurt me any. But don't force me to accept it. And the other thing: T being gay is not a race so stop pulling that card. That's just me.

    That's good - I agree! We are all human. ^-^ Pressing equality and rights and trying to make society safer for a group of people ( in terms of the issues they face, such as bullying ) is not really forcing you to accept it, though. It's not making you have to live any differently, is it? o: If it is, I'd like to know how, seriously. o.o

    Also, lmao, the race bit? That's not nearly as linear an issue as you're making it sound. The two issues have one thing in common - mainly one, and it's a pretty large thing, and that's to be able to have rights and the ability to live safely and in harmony with everyone else. I would suggest looking up the problems LGBT people face commonly, and kind of see what I mean by similarities. Equality is a thing that effects us all, and as you've said - we're all human!


  5. .... I refuse to reveal my age wink.gif but I got smacked in the face with it as well. I lived in a small town for a while where gay was barely heard of. I moved and now all of the sudden, it's every where. I'm having a rough time with it...

    I figured that by the way you were talking you didn't have an issue with people caring about this thread so much as the concept in general. It's starting to make sense to me, now.

    I can understand being a little shell-shocked at something that you barely/didn't even know was a concept that was common everywhere else, but yes. It helps to stay plugged in to your culture and the rearing issues in it and the gravity at which they are effecting your culture differently than other cultures. If you don't know much about the issue( or any issue for that matter - no harm in studying! ), I would recommend looking it all up before trying to debate it to people who know a lot more about the subject.


  6. So.. we should focus all our energy on the easy systems, instead of starting early with the difficult issue so that it will be finally resolved 20 years from now instead of waiting and then having it be solved 50+ years from now? Equality between race is STILL trying to balance itself; there is still racism, but since we handled it early, there is actually some harmony.

    What is the issue with just doing both at the same time, though? Where is your issue with that, again..? o:

    Also, for the health care and education system, which you seem to me mainly concerned about, there are threads in here for that if you look. o.o; It just sounds like you aren't satisfied with those issues having their own threads, but that you want to shoot down the people concerned in this thread/essentially want there to be no thread about this. I'm just basically stuck with the unsaid implications of your concerns, so clarification on that would be appreciated. :3


  7. Yes but unless everyone just randomly wakes up one day and decides they will hold the same values and beliefs as everyone else in the world, this can't be solved. And PLEASE tell me when the democrats and republicans have recently solved anything by 'working together'. I'm pretty sure you'll have a rough time of it.

     

    Ermmm... That is in America particularly..

    That sense can be applied to every issue you've stated then, right? All the issues with the health care, etc. is the result of differing opinions, people in office wanting to work it a different way and so forth. The problem is that you seem to be exercising inactivity.

    If we, the people who can essentially make a change, don't start talking about it now, we will never get it solved tomorrow. For example, the rights of black people? If that wasn't spoken about and moved for ( MLK, Rosa Parks, etc. ) that wouldn't have happened, but by what it seems like you're saying, we should have just.. dropped that because there are more important things, or feel hopeless about it changing because not everyone agreed about it.

    A rough time doesn't mean we should just drop it. Inactivity is the main problem in most cases.

     

    As Odeen said, we can fix more than one thing at once. People are diverse enough to multitask issues, scope them all out, and work on them. But we have to essentially analyze them all at a time, otherwise nothing gets done.


  8. This might sound a bit insensitve, but why are we worrying about gay rights when our education system is messed up, our healthcare is going down hill, our economy is is in the toilet, our daycare system in rotten to the core, our orphanage system, large scale pollution and other such things. Why are we worrying about a moral dilemma that will never be solved rather than issues in our systems that can be solved. Someone please explain that logic to me.

    It's not like we're NOT worrying about that, you know. o.o There are tons of discussion threads in this category, you know, and these things are also constantly being discussed elsewhere, off of the internet. It doesn't make any one of them any less important than the other, especially when it comes to this topic, which to you it may seem like just something about "gay rights," but to me it's addressing something a bit deeper than that - and that's equal freedom.

     

    Just saying.


  9. Just saw a GW pass by in the Alpines, gj to whoever got it!

    Do GWs have any worth lately or something like that? o: I find that a lot of people have been making comments like this about them, but I'm used to them being considered simply uncommon/a little less of value than CB Blacks ( the CB Black value for this year - not last year, as then they were very hard to find and thus in such high demand. )


  10. I can agree. I did complain but it was only about the amount of eggs in each drop now. That has been a growing issue even you have to admit that. I do understand it stables out after a while but at the beginning they go within 30 seconds or so and the last two I have had a lot of issues just getting two of each egg to have for breeding purposes. That's the limit I usually take so people have more of a chance. May change it up a bit now but wont take more then 3 of each.

     

    You know, I did notice something was a little strange this time. o.o Now that you mention it, we are missing the mass drop, hrm! I wonder why it was removed? And I have noticed the biomes emptying out quicker lately. I don't know if it's what you mean, but just recently I was waiting for a 5-minute drop, and when it arrived, I was eager to find something among the commons, but I swear like only three eggs went by before it was empty! I've neeever seen that, lawl. And ff, that's very kind of you. ^-^


  11. I have to say that the ooonly thing I don't like about the constant releases each month is.. the complaining, honestly. I mean obviously it's fine to be upset and show that, but some of the stuff is over the top, IMO. It's not even been 30 minutes in and some people seem like they're on the brink of quitting DC altogether or something.

    If the drops are too wild, just wait a while..? The drops are ridiculous because everyone's excited trying to get the new release. That's what I do when I can't get anything on the first day. <3

     

    The main thing I don't like is how every release is like a welcome to discuss every issue DC has, fff. It's a little strange. o.o;

     

    The "Copper Issue" is getting kind of old now, I believe. They're appearing a lot more now, and the two-headeds are really common now - at least I see them a ton, anyway. o.o It's impossible to tell if these eggs will be like the Coppers, since.. they're still dropping? It's only the first hour of the release, lawl.

     

    Anyway, I'm locked so good luck everyone~ I did accidentally catch one too many Coast guys, so I will be gifting it to someone on this thread. <3


  12. Do I smell some Mini Metal madness coming? o3o I got my 2nd CB Silver not so long ago...

     

    Anyways, congrats. c:

    It's been like this a while, actually. o.o That's when I had gotten my 4 CB Golds hunting.

     

    The Silvers seem a little less likely to show up, though, at least for me! Congratulations Dubious and Keepiru. Great hunting! ^-^


  13. Are CB Trihorns worth anything?

    From what I can see, their general worth, what with being uncommon, depends on if the person if looking for them or not. I've not seen any Trihorn trades lately asking for more than other CB uncommons, though personally for me, since I've been hunting for Trihorns since the release, given the number up for grabs, I'd offer a bit.

    Most uncommons/slightly unseen uncommons at this time are only valuable to people in the market for them. Otherwise they don't have much of an official standing. o.o


  14. FFFFUUUUU$'%<^<%^<<?%%<%><^#^<%!<<

    Why do I have to be egglocked? I want to facecactus right now...

    That's why you should never be in the cave when locked, LMAO. xd.png *pats* If it's any consolation, I've seen at least eight Dinos this week. I don't pick them up because eh, but yes. ^-^
