Well said grendel. Imagine, for example, a member of the forum is best friend with another one, they get to know each others for one entire year, then suddently one reveals on the forum he's gay, and the other start hating him, I think worse stuff than one of the person leaving could happen, to the person who declare herself gay.

I don't mind some off topic discussions on the forum though, even if it involves some debates, but I keep an eye on topic like this one or about politic, abortion and any other controversial stuff, because it can easily go out of hand. I'm glad that besides when lordofthegeeks  came in this topic things stayed kinda under control though, you should have seen the similar topic that was posted on United-TI back then. It wasn't involving flame wars, but it was close o.oblink.gif

That said, I agree with the fact that this site is more of a work place and technical discussion stuff and not really moral stuff. Not to brag, but I think this forum is the most calc games oriented TI forum out there.

That said in the past there was a lot of arguments in the past involving calc programming unfortunately, so it wasn't just politic, religion, sexual orientation, etc. There was a time when using TI-BASIC (or ASM libs + TI-BASIC) was almost a crime on some TI forums, you would get bashed pretty bad for using it, even if your game was better than some ASM games. :(sad.gif

Having been a TI-BASIC user for 6 and half a year and still failed at ASM you can guess I got bashed pretty bad often back then -.-blah.gif.

I'm sorry, but this discussion is going to continue to bother me until I say something. It's really crawling under my skin at the moment.

First of all, this thread was about a holiday -- not religious morality or evolutionary science. However, a few members brought it upon theirselves to participate in this discussion SOLEY to illustrate their feelings against homosexuality. The fact that they are against it does not bother me in the least bit -- it's the fact that they have absolutely NO regard for anything outside of their own beliefs and just had to rain on Netham's parade with pages of off-topic discussion about what's natural and what's not. That wasn't the point of this thread. All Nathem wanted to do was remind people about a holiday, in case any of our members were interested in checking it out. Yes, I'm sure we do have a few gay / bi members here, myself included.

The next time a topic about religion comes up, I'm going to post only to state my disapproval of religion based on how religious members have represented their lack of respect for anyone other than theirselves.

I think there is around 8 people here who are gay/bi, IRC channel included. Only half are still active though. There may be more though because it takes a lot for one person to reveal such stuff to public.

I just hope that the people who are against homosexuality doesn't hate those ppl, like, if a friend reveal them he is then he start hating him and doesn't want to talk to him anymore. That would be pretty homophobic and homophoby should be banned from the entire world, as it is as worse (if not more) as racism, discrimination, slander, libel and elitism. Why hate somebody for a skin color or their sexual orientation? Especially if the person doesnt bother you with it and act normal toward yourself?

If somebody hate gay people here with no exception, they might as well leave Omnimaga forums, because they have no idea how many people here and the IRC channel are either gay or bi! O_Oshocked2.gif I know at least 15% of the entire Omnimaga staff, including managers and admin are.

It may be higher percentage actually, because only 6 or 7 staff actually ever revealed their orientation IIRC. And there is member who're bi/gay too, here and other TI forums.

Just to tell how people could be there used to be lot of people who hated someone for the simple fact that he used TI-BASIC inside a game and doesn't know ASM.

People tend to fear and shun that which is different from what they are accostumed to and that which is different from themselves. I don't know if humanity will ever reach a point in which discrimination due to diferences of race/sexuality/religon/whatever are not an issue. I would encourge people to keep an open mind and instead of taking the easy way out by fearing or shuning what you don't understand; try and at least understand it. Diversity has and will always exist on many levels and while you may not agree with someone elses differences, at least try to and acknowledge the fact that they are unique and you are also because that is just the way the world is.

i really don't care if a person is gay or not, just as long as it does not makes problems for society. also the entire gay thing is just a waste of time, if some one is gay they are gay and no one can change it, so people should just let it be not complain about something they will never be able to change. and anyways it is a good thing that some people are gay because then they can't have children, and with the earth starting to be over populated it is good that they can't contribute to earth's population probleml.  lastly people that cann't just let it be are idiotic in that belief since it justs promotes fear of gays and wastes time and energy when something much more productive for humanity can be done instead of arguring the point of if it is bad or not. I mean you have to also relize that gays are human too.

I dont really agree with the kid thing entirely. I think less kids in country like china and 3rd world country may be a good thing, cuz those kid often suffers anyway, but in country like Canada there are so few kids that they predict that 30% of the population will be above 65 years old and total population will decrease at fast rates.

There is also the gay parade things, I think it got overrated with the time. It always look more like attention begging than trying to convince ppl gay are like each others. On top of that almost all guys are disguised as women x.x, it just look weird and overrated imo. I just think that if such parade was neccessary that there should be one for black ppl, arabs, asians and all ethnicities everywhere a gay parade occurs.

i too think the parade is useless, despite my view on homosexual people, having a parade really does nothing to help how they are viewwed. if anything, it does the opposite

I take it no one really caught the point I was trying to make.

I just don't understand why the most trivial mention of homosexuality has to result in a full social dissection of gay issues like adoption, marriage, and so forth. Although, I guess those subjects actually do relate to the Day of Silence, so this is somewhat of a moot point to be illustrating at the wrong time. Either way, it's just my frustration speaking.
