However, when we talk about minorities, don't include Jews, Blacks, Whites, Browns, Purples, Greens and Yellows in the same category as gay people. It's an entirely different story because gay people choose their lifestyle and have their own preferences. You do not chose what colour your skin is at birth so it's totally different.
I advise you to do some reading up on modern biological/medical insights on this matter. Being gay is, unlike some activists thought way back in the 60's-70's of the 20th century, NOT AT ALL a free choice.
Many of them struggle with being gay, sometimes during their entire lives (think of religiously oppressed groups, for instance).
You truly think that's a 'free choice' they made?
I want to make clear that I do know that there are people adopting a 'gay lifestyle' for whatever reason - they're bisexual, think it's 'cool' or whatever - but when one is BORN gay, that's how you are. No choice whatsoever.
And now I'm out of here, because I don't want to end up somewhere in the mudslinging contest that this thread may well turn into.
