    I am indifferent really. I treat people from the LGBT community the same as everyone else, if I don't like someone who is from the LGBT community then it will be because of their personality, not their sexuality. I have no reason to dislike a person simply because their sexual orientation differs from mine.

    I respect them for being brave enough to be able to tell people with all the hate in the world.
    I personally treat them the same as anyone else, because you are all normal people.
    It disgusts me when people hate LGBT people because theres nothing about them thats different to hetero people. Just because they are attracted to the sane sex or dont feel comfortable in their body, doesnt mean theres anything wrong with them, because there isnt!
    So it doesnt matter to me if people are LGBT because theyre normal people!

    This is the cycle yeah;
    Someone makes a gay opinions thread for the 746387463598465084753344983th time
    Someone (normally Muslim) says something homophobic
    The thread turns into a debate about Islam and Islamophobia
    Rinse and repeat

    Honestly these threads get old and the same things gets said everytime

    Given we're not a homogeneous group, I'd find it pretty hard to have an opinion on all of us. We have to keep adding letters, let's not pretend it's that simple.

    I really don't mind LGBT whatever, they can do what they want, and they don't deserve to be bullied or persecuted. Just because I can't get my head around it, doesn't mean that it's wrong. However, I do think it goes a little too far sometimes. If I'm not wrong, New York now recognises 31 genders. That's going a little far. Why can't you just be a girl who likes to dress in boy's clothes sometimes? There are just too many labels in my opinion. They can go for it though, doesn't affect me I guess

    Nobody cares that you're gay to be honest
    Actually you'd be surprised.

    You'd be surprised about how much covert homophobia there is, and stereotypes.

    I don't judge people on their sexuality or whatever, it's ridiculous. They deserve as much rights as an hetrosexual person.
    They already have the same rights as heterosexual people

    Think about the shooting that recently happened, gay couples still get beaten up, trans people have higher rates of suicide.

    Even in the West, same sex marriage isn't universal.
    In Germany for example there are civil partnerships, but not same sex marriage.
    Marriage there offers tax reductions, which makes it institutionalised discrimination.
    The only religion older than marriage itself is Zoroatrianism.

    And even if there was total equality in law, there's still the issue of social discrimination and prejudice, like the amount of people that compare homosexuals to paedophiles. Another sad thing is, that there's even discrimination within the LGBT community, such as "bi-erasure", and there are people who advocate positive discrimination (like in all other areas of life.)

    I don't see how that makes them any different. If they're nice, they're nice. If they aren't, they aren't.

    That's not about rights. They have those rights. It's about social attitude.

    Homosexual individuals have the same rights as heterosexuals, e.g. the right to marry someone of the opposite sex.

    They have the same rights. Equal rights. But perhaps not entirely fair rights.

    Just a technicality.

    Right.
