    I don't understand how some people who are judged for a decision they've never made, can judge other people for a decision they've never made.

    I dunno what to say to them, i have an idea for a line but i don't think i can say it here.

    Well, there is pretty not much that you can do apart from cutting contact from them if it gets to you.

    It's a fact of life that, no matter how persecuted one social group is or has been, they will attempt to persecute another.

    Makes perfect sense. The bullied bully.

    A psychological thing I think, where the weakest link takes its first opportunity to bully the next weakest link, even if it means lining up with those who first bullied them.

    That's our ****ed up society for you :proud:

    EDIT: Just realized arkasia said it before me.

    To be honest just say what you've have said right here. How can he oppress a group of people for something they can't control, when he himself is part of an oppressed group.

    Yeah same, except the ones that did it to me never admitted they were bullied before, they were just glad to see someone else in their place.

    Hypocrisy at its best mate.

    This is a very lefty mindset predicated on the assumption that they feel oppressed for being homosexuals and therefore will feel sympathy for other oppressed groups.

    May i suggest that since being homosexual is practically encouraged nowadays that they don't feel oppressed.

    There's also a big distinction between people's sexual choices and accepting those that they do not consider 'one of us'.

    I don't advocate their racism but at the same time, i don't consider Arabs 'one of us' either and may well vote to leave the EU because of Merkel's actions despite the fact that i support generally high immigration (but of those culturally similar to us).

    To be fair, the LGB community is not that much of a political thorn because the vast majority of these people are reasonable and sane.

    It's the T and BME activists that are currently nuts.

    Homosexuals are far from oppressed in the UK.

    Why would you "support" high immigration? The UK is not a country that needs high immigration. Far from it. Even places like Australia don't need it anymore. The UK never has.

    Let your uncle and his partner be. It's their opinion and not everyone will like blacks and middle easterners. I will respect such men for being real and as long as they stay in their lane.

    If i meet them and they show their madness to me, I'll sort them out. I'm black and I don't feel oppressed. If I have a chance to come to this world ten times, I'll come back blacker each time.

    There will be racists, sexists, homophobes etc. Everyone can't be 100% liberal and tolerant.
