    It would be a really hateful place if everyone did that. A lot more fights would be started, and it would rise into violence. The hate crime policy protects people mainly because it discourages acts of violence and aggression based on race, nationality, religion, etc.
    Reality check: the world IS a hateful place. We are ALL judged on a nearly daily basis for all sorts of things. We can't all pick daisies together, link hands and sing kumbaya because we all believe and want different things in our utopia. The very IDEA of most utopian societies is that they are acheived by eliminating undesirables and those who disagree with the prevailing mindset.

    We NEED conflict. And we NEED the right to exist as "abberant" social groups. Alternate sexualities may be growing more mainstream, but without the right to free speech and the inability of people to kill or arrest us for being who we are has a big part to play in that.

    You're saying that white supremacists shouldn't have that same right? BS. We don't need to agree with them to recognize that their RIGHT TO EXIST is every bit as important as our own. The same goes for black panthers, religious extremists, "psychics", overweight people, the mentally ill, etc.

    If they break the law: they should be arrested. But if they are operating within the boundaries of established society: we all need to just DEAL.

    The world is NOT perfect. And thanks to that, we're here at all. Because at one in history, we were very much out of line with just about everyone's notion of "Utopia".

    Re: If Your're gay...Back away.......

    Hmm... Interesting topic.
    A lot of people think I'm gay upon first meeting me. (It doesn't help that my movements are pretty effeminate and I go limp in the wrist when I smoke cigs, LOL.) So, I've been accused/teased for "being gay". It's funny busting people's bubbles--sorry guys, I'm not gay and you're not my type.

    I have TONS of gay friends. Most of them are from high school. I wasn't black enough and they weren't straight, so we kinda were a crew of outcasts and vagabonds. People shouldn't be teased/criticized on thier sexual preference. They ARE human and DO deserve our respect!

    One of my closest friends is bi-sexual (which means he's gay, he just can't choose a side, LOL.), so disrespecting any other homosexual would be like disrespecting him. Homosexuality goes back since before the birth of Christ, so why should it be wrong now, when it wasn't back then?

    I've said it once, I'll say it again. Society's turned gays in to the new black people. I see more gay civil rights movements now, than my granmother has seen black movements, LOL.

    Yes, but look at it this way. Discrimination laws are stricter then ever. Back in the 1960s people openly called african americans "nigger" and "gigaboo". Now, if you say that you can be tried against. Its been tabooed. And for the best too.

    Now, with all these restrictions, crime committees, laws, and regulations, were in more peace then ever. If you want to loosen these laws, it will go down hill.

    I do have friends that are gay. But I don't like their lifestyle. I mean those friends are nice,but I don't like idea of 2 boys or 2 girls being together.

    I don't have a problem with it. What ever people want to do in privacy is their business and it's none of my concern.

    Re: If Your're gay...Back away.......

    I come from a really small country where homosexualism is not that easy to see, so I have very little idea of how it is for those people and no one has ever bothered me (like... a girl touching me or something o.~ yak!)

    But well I've seen some transexuals already since I came to London and I even have a bisexual friend! And she's damn cool She also knew I'm straight and didn't bug me in any way, it was nice to talk about that a bit to her

    As long as they don't touch me I'm ok with them... might throw and odd look but that's just because I'm not very used to it. Well if they'd get too close.... "Back away!" Would be really something from the dictionary I could use

    I have never went shopping with a gay guy,but if u did go shopping they could probably help u pick out outfits. I watch those fashion type shows sometimes. I like to hear them talk its funny!
