    Of course it is. The leader of their movement said they'd go and find some free land somewhere. What a preposterous idea; there is no free land on earth. All land on earth is currently owned by some government or another.

    The only thing they could do is to create a new island like the Chinese are doing in the Spratly area

    I don't want to be that harsh. He probably knows it won't happen either. But it's a little bit rigid to harshly dismiss dreamers. I welcome his contribution to the debate; I disagree with him but it's a valid debate to have

    Just because 3% is produced it doesn't mean they will go to gaytopia.
    3% of the global population is a lot. Many will be from homophobic countries, since that is where the population growth is (e.g. around 40% of babies born will be born in Africa by 2050; Africa is not homophilic), and thus many would want to migrate to Homotopia. You only need a fraction of them to have a sizeable country.

    If your'e not then I think you should consider your language a bit more carefully. Talking about "queers" this and "homos" that can be a bit obnoxious coming from a straight person. It's like black people being able to use the N word

    The number of "gay households" is more like 6%. When you include bisexuals and people who are gay but in other kinds of relationships, around 10%. If you include anyone who has ever had same-sex sexual relations, it's 20%.

    Pretty sure antartica is still free,could be a bit chilly though.On the other hand you would be pretty far away from just about everyone and as someone who hates people in general that sounds appealing.

    Doesn't this just make gays feel isolated and separated as if they aren't normal or worthy with being associated with straight people and also vica versa

    You would think gay people are from a different planet that need special treatment to survive.

    Just be gay and get on with it. you do not need to have your own island

    Its rather queer that you should imply I used the term "queers".

    My OP has been warned, I'd just like to say to the mods that I am gay myself. I'm not being homophobic, maybe my language was a little over the top (and yes, straight people shouldn't be joining in with the "Oh look, homos queers etc"; that's like white people using the N word)
    I use the N word all the time.
