A homosexual goofs up one of the most ancient and revered tenets of nature and philosophy, , the union of opposites. Of course, they will find a home in the democratic party. That party goofs nearly everything up. we have poor thinking or no thinking here. same sex even goes against the libs sacred Darwin and the libs claim to be scientific. Dont the libs accuse the right wing of being dumb ? well its ok when a liberal does it, especially if you can say it is a right or due to the fuzzy thing called love.

It is a shame that LGBTQ have to fight just like women, blacks, mentally ill,etc had to fight. When will we learn to accept people and understand that they just want rights. If you truely believe what you say then isn't it God's job to judge, not your? I am fortunate to have gay friends, they have taught me so much.

There are straight people. There are gay people. People enjoy self, oral, anal and/or vaginal sex. Some straight people I know enjoy all four. Some gay people I know enjoy all four. Why does it matter who is doing what with whom? If you don’t like doing any of the four, then…don’t. And what someone does with someone else does not totally define the person.

The post from Classof74 clearly illustrates why panel forums, political advocacy and open social expression from the LGBTQ community is so important. Aversion and animosity like that is what we fight against. Live and let live is an American ideal, along with the idea that people are politically equal and deserving of rights as long as they don't harm anyone. It's a shame that so many people don't care for these ideals at all.

I have a suggestion for Classof74. Perhaps you should remove yourself from all social contact, maybe live in a cave or the desert somewhere so you won't have to be offended by the presence of LGBT people? You'd be free of all these things that disturb you so greatly and we'd be free of your brand of hate. Win/win!

Like all issues that are in the minority: be careful what you wish for.

One again the small minded prejudice of Chautauqua County rears it's ugly head. Apparently Class of 75 thinks he/she doesn't like something and that's the only opinion that matters. How does someone else having rights take away yours? No one is telling you to be gay, or have gay friend, nothing gives you the right to discriminate against others.

Class of 74 why don’t you call yourself classless 74. There are ways of making a point without being so derogatory. Your filthy language you publish is worse than anything two people of the same gender do private.
