I will never understand why sexual orientation matters in our society. Someone being gay has no effect on our life, so why do you care so much.

Because xenophobia is internalised by all human beings in order to avert constant identity crisis whenever faced with alternative opinions or lifestyles.

Ok, not that i disagree fundamentally with what you said, but you shouldn't use that kind of argument, because it has soooo many flaws that anyone that is somewhat versed in arguments can tear it apart. "If something has no effect on your life directly, then why would you fight for human right?" blah blah blah.

A few major reasons:
1) Many people have a very primitive, caveman-like tribal mindset.
2) People feel that their religion is being violated by the mere presence of gays.
3) Some people are SO uncomfortable with the idea of homosexuality that they irrationally wish it could just cease to exist as a concept.
4) Some people give in to (the actually looney) conspiracy theories that ALL gays want to bugger their children.

At its root, people are still Tribal.

The Tribal mindset is that EVERYONE has to be like you, not just in your immediate area, but EVERYWHERE.

These people are literally too mentally dim to understand the concept of 'Live and Let Live'. They are the sort of people who would kill gays/anyone-else-they-disagree with en masse if they could get away with it.

Yes, it has an effect on our life. Gays have no offspring. But this isn't big enough of a deal for reasonable people to care (unless everybody suddenly turns gay, then we're ****** . I'm not saying that'll happen, anyways).
Same as incestous relationships. If they're legalized tomorrow, their children would come out retarded or something.

because as humans, we dont like anything new or different that doesnt improve our quality of life in some fashion. its human nature. **** anyone who says "thats against my religion" because they are just hiding behind that to justify their beliefs. i like to believe myself as open minded on religion, i'm more than likely agnostic, or more specifically a combination of islamic/christian/jewish beliefs. i support homosexual equality mainly because i dont give a **** . it doesnt affect me at all, and i'm certainly in no place to judge if it is wrong, thats up to the higher ups.

I said internet. Because no culture on the internet can affect you so there is no point in hating it. But (like you said) in real life there is damn good reasons to hate many people.

People are afraid of what their minds don't understand. Simple as that. In my mind, the 'good and wholesome' people are those who make an effort to understand.

anyone can be taught to believe something, no matter how ignorant or wrong they are. In their twisted perceptions they believe they are helping people and doing the right thing by persecuting them. I have met plenty of people who have said things like, "I support gay rights, I just don't think they should get married." or, "I like gay people, I just don't want them ruining traditional marriage." Years of hearing the same thing from their equally ignorant parents will make them discount any logic or reason thrown at them.

I agree. I think it has to do with pride parades and stereotypical gay culture. That's the only time gay people have really been shown and focused on in public, and the parades focus on flamboyancy and colors and dildos. I think this sharp contrast with everyday life seeks to alienate gay people from straight people, and many straight people are freaked out by it.

Shared showers are mandatory.
They somehow believe gays will go into libido over drive and rape their squadmates.

Religious Beliefs
User avatar #54 to #14 - merrymarvelite (08/23/2013) [-]
I feel like that argument doesn't hold up.

The book of Leviticus says gay sex is a sin, yes, but it also says that eating shellfish and wearing clothes made from two different cloth.

Some people use the Bible to justify their hatred but if their religion is where they are getting their morals then they'd be against all kinds of arbitrary things.

Instead they focus on the one which is most convenient for them since it involves someone else and doesn't require them to modify their own behaviour.

Exactly why I think religion is one of the most pointless topics we have ever created. But at the same time most of the worlds culture wouldn't be the same with out it. Aside from modern day religious disputes, I believe you should believe what you want to believe and shut your mouth about it.

I'd argue that religion isn't a problem at all, rather it is the religious people that are the problem. Religion is essentially just a set of rules to live your life by much like the laws that we live by. They are not inherently bad but just as the law can be abused, so can a belief system. The problem with a belief system is that it is so fundamental to people's existences that most of the time they will always consider themselves in the right, meaning they are very hard to change indeed to the point where even the pope (who is considered to be the legate of god's will on earth) was spoken out against publicly for his progressive policies.

Religion isn't a bad thing as it brings culture, art, kindness and devotion to the world in many different ways and it is proof that even the religions that are fundamentally based in cruelty (like Islam, for example) can change when the religious people are not horrible people (i.e. progressive muslim communities that don't support jihad.)

So it's not pointless, it's just horribly abused and misused in today's culture as a means of justification, which it isn't.

That's part of my confusion. Why do certain religious groups feel the need to shape the laws of the land around their beliefs when they know not everyone agrees with them.
User avatar #23 to #16 - pseudobob **User deleted account** (08/22/2013) [-]
Because they believe they are right in their ways, and that theirs is the only way to salvation.

Not all people are like this, and very few religions actually condone that kind of discrimination. But we've all met someone, and we all know who we're talking about.

Well it does only when the mother (father) ******* want to bend the straight community to their wants. Discrimination? Its WRONG, no one should be judged, but goddamn quit bitching about marrige. Its a sacred ritual between a man and a woman, make your own damn ritual of partnership, I don't protest it. Call It something other than marriage.

Marriage is the unification of two people in the eyes of the government. It's a legal contract saying that they agree to share their lives, finances, and expenses.
