Re: Are members of the gay community better adjusted, in a moral sense; than homophobes?

So homophobes are also applying a double standard on this as they are hating gays for doing exactly as they do except for the gender difference. I mean I don't think they're doing it to the same extent, and I don't think it's why most 'homophobes' actually dislike gay people. So why do you think ho...

The morally-beyond-reproach thought police have arrived :roll:
Quite good that you recognize they are beyond your reproach. Get on board, lame brain?

If you can't beat the moral position, an intelligent person would adopt it.

Are members of the gay community better adjusted, in a moral sense; than homophobes? DL Homosexuals are a group of people. Some remain silent about their homosexuality, but they are generally ordinary except for their sexual preference, about which they hope to be open and honest, and nothing much ...

Do you put love above sex or sex above love?

Do you care if gays are gays or if they get married?
Irrelevant nonsense!
Not to gays or this discussion. Get into it or get out of it.

Re: Are members of the gay community better adjusted, in a moral sense; than homophobes?

I think that's a pretty myopic viewpoint. Of course what veg says is true, so I'm speaking in generalizations, but in my opinion, gay men in particular are about as promiscuous as the media would have us believe. Though, gay women tend to be very monogamous and put a pretty great value on that, pro...

No they often get in trouble because they sexually harass hetros so they get their ass kicked, once was dragged into a fashion house by my parents, some gay dude jumped me and kissed me before I could push him away...

Do they have to be 'members of a community'? Aren't they just people?
We are all members of a community.

I see them as just people, yes, who should not have to be seen as inferior to homophobes when they are in fact more moral and better mentally adjusted.

Bodycentric orientation is a shallow, perhaps even irrelevant, basis for philosophy, which is about the mind.
I will take that as a yes to the question.

Re: EVIL!!!!!!!!

You are talking about mitigating her lose. It does not negate that she lost the competition. The point is this: the mere fact of having not won a competition does not make one a "victim." To suggest it does would be absurd, because counter cases abound. For instance, in some situations, many people...

Only a fool would think that there is just one true right way. Agreed. Now if only you could remember that when you're arrogantly spouting what you think the truth is. Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people. Eleanor Roosevelt Sounds good, doesn't it? Of ...

Re: EVIL!!!!!!!!

When you lose at a competition, do you feel good about it, or do you think evil has befallen you? "Befallen"? What a desperate and sad word that is! You would have the second woman tell herself that her lack of promotion "befell" her? You'd tell her it was nothing to do with her choices? :shock: If...

Re: EVIL!!!!!!!!

When competing in a triathlon, all but one person will win. Is DL going to suggest that this makes all the wealthy and eager participants, who for the sake of winning fine-tuned their bodies to a peak fitness, a bunch of "victims"? :shock: As compared to those who fine tuned their bodies better, ye...

Re: EVIL!!!!!!!!

"I equate competition with evil because that creates a loser or victim." You are saying evil CREATES. And, to your point, a "loser" is not the same as a "victim." There are plenty of people who "lose" things, who are very far from being victims. When competing in a triathlon, all but one person wil...
