The Bronze Legacy:
“‘Tis a noble gift to be brown, all brown, Like the strongest things that make up this earth,
Like the mountains grave and grand, Even like the very land, Even like the trunks of trees— Even oaks, to be like these!
God builds His strength in bronze” -Effie Lee Newsome

GAY PEOPLE HAVE ALL THEIR RIGHTS IN FIRST WORLD COUNTRIES.
SORRY TO SAY IT, BUT NOT GETTING PICKED ON BY A DOUCHEBAG ON THE CORNER ISN'T A "RIGHT", IT'S A FACT OF LIFE. STOP USING DOUCHEBAGS AS SOME SORT OF WAY TO JUSTIFY YOUR NEED FOR MORE LAWS PROTECTING YOU??? I'm fuckin bi and ????? I have every right a straight white man does??? In America?? Please???
One: To point fingers at one side is making you look just as bad as the "straight people" you hate so dearly. Neither side is sexualizing children: by making a shirt saying "ladies man" and buying it for your son, it's more of a teasing thing. My parents did it to my brother when he was a baby because he was a cute baby.
Two: Actually, it's kind of disgusting to see a child - who doesn't understand what the flag he's holding represents - being used as an icon. In almost every case of LGBT classes meant for young kids, the kids involved were confused, and some scared. A young girl came home after her class was taught about trans people worried that she would suddenly become a boy. Children like that aren't old enough to understand, and honestly both homosexual and heterosexual issues are things kids don't need to know about until they're old enough to start figuring it out.
The LGBT community had a lot of flaws, just like every community, and while I definitely love some of the things they do for people I don't support it as a whole due to things like this - making themselves look childish, and then acting as if a five year old holding a gay flag is an amazing thing. It isn't.
