I thought this thread was succesful in old pc, until people started flaming.Flaming will not be tolerated here.Respect others beliefs.
What upsets me is homosexuality and atheism.

Right there you listed the two most likely words to start a flamewar. I'll close this at the very slightest of a hint of one. I mean it, no bashing anyone else, and no debating on either topic. If I see it, it is closed for everyone.

Smokers :dead: I dislike people who smoke, they are killing themselves
and intoxicating their surroundings and the air. Smoking is a bad habit (aswell
as an addiction) but smokers could quit if they really wanted to.

Homosexuality ... why do people still have problems with it ?

Its 2003 ... the world is supposed to be advanced. BTW, what is "flaming" ?

Fighting Back , Giving Bad Remarks , basically picking a fight , thats what flame means.

These things make me upset or put me in tears (normal for females. :P)
Racism
Gay Marriage... (I am against it... I don't think gay people should have the right to marry each other... my sence... it's discusting)
Disrespecting Homosexuals (You have no right to make fun of gay/lesbian people.. it's their choice)
Saying bad things about me (Popularity kind of thing)
Anti-Pokemon and Anti-Yu-gi-oh

*shrugs* How is a married couple different from a common-law couple? Essentially, they aren't. Why not let them get married? Love is love, kids. And while I'm guilty of hypocrisy, same as everyone...isn't denying homosexuals the ability to marry rather like discriminating against them? I don't know, but when people say it annoys them that people disrespect homosexuals, and then go on to say that a g@y marriage would be disgusting...eh.

Anyway...the thing that bothers me most is when people discriminate against or do terrible things to women...rape, sexual assault, etc. Similarly with children and men, if it comes to it. It really, truly makes me sick and when I hear about it it makes me afraid to walk down the streets, I swear.

Religious fundamentalism really annoys me also. Not to say that it's not right to believe that the earth is six thousand years old; if that floats you boat, well, go with it. What bothers me is when these people try to get their ancient myths taught as ABSOLUTE FACT in our PUBLIC SCHOOLS. Similarly with intelligent design. Public schools are supposed to be a place where students can go where they won't have to worry about religion... You don't teach ancient greek mythology in science class, so why ancient hebrew? Ugh...

Also, when people smoke around me, or get on the bus having just smoked. The smell makes me ill--it's such a disgusting habit.

Heh, I think it's human nature to dislike homework, but it truly does help you understand the concepts better if you do it. *shrugs*

Let's see...racism and other forms of discrimination, as I've mentioned earlier, irk me also. Most things born from hatred and ignorance bother me, it seems.

Okay...one final thing. When people try to blame the video game/entertainment industry for all of society's ills. It doesn't work that way--if there's anyone to blame, it's the parents who don't impress upon their children the difference between FANTASY and REALITY...and the media, turning the U.S. into a society of fear. Have you ever seen a news show here in Canada? In the states, it's like 'murdermurdermurderdrunkdriverbreakinpedophilefearfearmorefear', whereas in Canada, it's like, 'Chretien is a wanker! Now let's look at some cute kitties!'.

...so...DON'T DO DRUGS, KIDDIES! *ding* ^_^

i was so shocked at the amount of racists at my school, there used to it in korea but im from the good old US of A where racism (at least in california) is just plain wrong!

And well, homosexuality is just plain wrong.For those who believe in God,its a sin,not to mention disgusting.


Well, I used to believe in God when I was small, but entering my teenage
years I found myself questioning if there really is one. I'm not saying I DON'T
believe in God, I'm just not sure where I stand on the matter.

Anyhow, I thought God said things like : Love eachother, we're all brothers
and sisters

... things like that. How can we hate people just because they have
a different sexual preference from most others ? We ALL have feelings
and NO DOUBT it hurts homosexuals when people don't accept them,
or make fun of them or beat them up because they like members of the
same sex.

Doesn't it matter how we are a people ? In the inside ???

I think you are absolutely right, baby*j. Just because some people are in love with people of their same gender doesn't mean they should be looked down upon. I also dislike racism(can't we all just get along?), stereotype(you know, like the all girls talk too much, etc.), people who smoke(I think I'll die of 2nd hand smoking one day), copy cats, and school work(it's just too tiring) :P.

And I also hate homework...the teachers only give it to us to make the lazy people look dumb, it's discriminatory against smart and lazy people like me...

other things I take offense to (not necessarily hate):
1) people who call me stupid (yeah, I'm in the top 15% of my class, and you're calling me stupid?)
2)people who call me gay (just because I never "get some" doesn't mean I'm not attracted to girls, it just means I'm abstaining unti I'm older)

heh... nuff said... not to offend you. :P

and I am not against gay people.

Um, what about all the heterosexual partners who decide not to have children? If you're against homosexual marriages because they won't necessarily result in procreation, then maybe it should be mandatory to have children in a heterosexual marriage. And I don't know about you, but I'd never get married then.

Besides, I think the number of homosexuals in a population is 8% or something (feel free to correct me, I'm not really sure). So even if all heterosexual couples were getting together and having children, that's not really a huge dent in the possible birth rate.

Personally, I'd LIKE to see the human population go down. We're destroying the environment and consuming resources insatiably...the last thing this planet needs is yet MORE hairless ape virii (yes, I agree with Agent Smith's description of human beings...).

And like I said...love is love. Sex is secondary (I'm guessing that's what some of you are considering 'disgusting'); the need for it can be conveniently replaced with other things, but a true life partner, someone you can trust your life with, feel utterly comfortable with and depend upon in any situation--whatever your gender preference--cannot be replaced with anything at all.

Love is love.

One of my heroes, Marlyn von Savant, was once told that someone said " If everyone in the world was gay starting today, we would die out. Therefore, being gay is wrong." She responded by saying "If everyone in the world was male starting today, we would die out. Therefore, being male is wrong. Since it is not wrong to be male, it is not wrong to be gay."

That's a bit stupid if you ask me. Seeing as we exist as male and female, and homosexuality only exists within a person. If I saw the person who made that statement I'd give them a battering for being so stupid. :dead:

I can't stand smokers. I think they deserve to die after ignoring all the warnings they get to quit. Take that as harsh if you like. I really don't care. Ho hum.

If everyone was female we would die out too so that doesn't really make much sense.

i am against homosexuality myself (not gay, but homosexuality). but that doesn't mean i discriminate them. Due to my religious beliefs, i am against it and personally i don't think it's morally right to do so as well. However we're not suppose to just dump them in a corner so they'll just continue to live this way, but try to guide them back to the right path if possible... i hate homosexuality, but not homosexual people.

other things i hate: society, sl*ts (these morons should be "cursed" *i actually meant the more offensive version of the word here* for life), people who are disrespectful, people who do the exact opposite of what you want them to do with you, people who brings you down because of their stupidity, and people (who doesn't know what they're doing) who try to be a superior leader over all others.

You know what upsets me? All of these ignorant, homophobic children. You can't control homosexuality, it is part of who you are. Being against gays is the same as being racist and being against the mentally ill. They can't help it, so being against it is cruel.

Gay marriage... go for it I say. Like what Keleri said, who cares if the population dips? People aren't "turning gay" if that's what you fear.

Here's what else upsets me:

child abuse
animal abuse
pollution
anti-pokemon
anti-anything entertainment
homophobes *just wanted to add it again*
god-fearing christians who think everything pleasurable is a sin
anti-atheist *I'm atheist, hate me! :P*
anti-fighting type

if we ignore the morality part of homosexuality, then same gender marriage should be allowed because it's just their freedom of choice.

However, the government has the responsibility to guide its citizens to do what is "right" and not do what is "wrong." For example, they make laws against drunk driving, abuse, murder and etc. That is because we shouldn't be doing these things.

Now the big debate about same gender marriage is here. Is it considered a "harmless thing" or a "bad thing?" If it's a bad thing then the government should stop it. But then some ppl don't think of it as a bad thing... so there's the argument. It's not about freedom of choice. It's about its morality, if it's morally right or wrong.

Kairi
October 22nd, 2003, 03:22 PM

Racism is a form of another way of insulting someone that are actually better than you. I would know, I have a redneck friend... Who cares about homosexuality, it's a way of expressing themselves. Men like men because they think women are sly and evil. Women like women because they think men are nasty and disgusting... What I hate is retards in my class who think what they say actually counts and somebody cares. I hate people who say all these useless bs that happened to them, nobody cares. I also hate people who act tough but when you proceed to start fight with them, they back off like a little pansy. Also, rape. I don't hate homework because I never do it. I also hate lots of people like some on PC who will be unmentioned. They hate me back anyways. Seems like a useless rant that nobody will care to read but I like to waste my life away because I'm such a tard with no ambition, no hope for future. I also hate myself.
