Do you think gay people are picked on these days or accepted by most?

  • I think alot of people "act" accepting and then make terribly judgemental comments behinds their backs.

    This is not any different than any other group of people: Overweight, mentally challenged, non-attractive people, unclean people, poor people, people on PA, People judge others for alot of reasons, gays don't have a monopoly of judgement comments.

  • I think it's GETTING more accepted but there are still those ignorant people out there who gay bash. I don't think homosexuality will ever be 100% accepted. I personally have no problem with it. I have many friends who are and they are no different than my straight ones.. the sex conversations are just a bit more interesting lol

    As a heterosexual woman, I have certainly heard my fair share of gay-bashing . . . . and they have gotten their fair share of admonishing in return.

  • I think it varies widely by geography. I live near San Francisco, where it's generally accepted. Of course, many other areas aren't as open as we are!

  • I don't agree with their lifestyle but I DO NOT bash them or judge them because that is not my place. I'm sure that everyone can find something that they don't agree with, with everyone else. But it is not our place to judge or bash....I don't except their lifestyle but it doesn't matter if I accept it or not. I do have some gay friends and I am kind to them and treat them like I would anyone else.
