Exactly! In recent years, liberals have been trying to force everyone to say that homosexuality is okay. So liberals are trying to enforce uniformity of thought and opinion. That is the opposite of liberty, tolerance, and pluralism. Conservatives are the ones mature enough to coexist, to agree to disagree. Two gay people can do whatever they want together, but they can't force me to give their lifestyle a gold star. I still have the right to believe what I want.

It's conservatives who are trying to tell gay people what they can and can't do together. It was conservatives who fought all the way to the Supreme Court to keep consentual sodomy illegal until 2003. It was conservatives who fought all the way to the Supreme Court to keep same sex marriage illegal until 2015. That doesn't sound like "coexist" and "agree to disagree" to me.

You know, Octavia, conservatives support giving LBGT folks equal rights in housing, employment, protection from harassment, access to public transportation, etc. If two gay people want to be more than just roommates, that's their business. But when they demand that the rest of us endorse such a union, it's our business. And I pity the adopted kids who will have to grow up without a mother or without a father.

Then you should be opposed to sending good men off to war, which often results in wives becoming widows and children becoming fatherless. Foster kids are not ripped from good, loving households and thrown into the foster care system for no reason.

The first part isn't entirely true, either. Many conservatives wholeheartedly oppose ENDA and think it should be legal to fire someone for being gay, or deny them housing. Some conservatives do support LGBT rights, but they certainly don't make up the bulk.

I think you're wrong. I think the majority of conservatives support their "rights" but it can be done without agreeing with the lifestyle, or personally validating the lifestyle.

I don't think that's true. I think the majority of conservatives think it's an abomination and participants are going to hell, so they shouldn't be allowed to get married, or make decisions for a loved one, or use a particular public restroom. Prior to the Supreme Court validation of same sex marriages, only 37 states were allowing it. This is not supporting their rights.

I can think atheists are an abomination and going to hell but it doesn't mean they have any less rights. I was okay with civil unions, but when the gay community decided that wasn't good enough and that it was an imperative that everyone change their definition of marriage to match theirs, the line was crossed. Branding people homophobes because they don't agree with the gay definition of marriage only widens that Gap.

LMAO!! Trump pandered to the racist xenophobes during his canpaign after spending years as a democrat. He even said if he would ever run for office it would be as a Repube because it would be so easy to just say all the ignorant bs they like to hear.

You're not making sense at all. Conservatives don't coexist or agree to disagree. Why then defund planned parenthood ? Why outlaw transgender bathrooms? If you're coexisting then you're saying it's okay to be who you want to be, to have the right of life liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Conservatives are specifically saying these things aren't okay, that people can be this but they can't get married, or have survivors rights, or use the damn restroom. People are being murdered by right wing extremists for dressing different than the norm, or for trying to get birth control. It's not liberals doing all that. Liberals are saying you can think how you want. Just don't deny someone else basic human and civil rights because you disagree.

Tolerance is not the only virtue; nor is it the commanding virtue. People can do what they want, AS LONG as it's not threatening the rights of others. We don't want our tax dollars going to the slaughter of innocent children. And we don't want men in the bathroom with our little girls--we want to protect our girls' safety, sanctity, and privacy. NO ONE has the right to use the opposite gender's bathroom. These are common sense laws to ensure everyone's safety. If transgender people's emotions can't handle it, then build a third, single-stall bathroom for them. If a man wants to think of himself as a woman, whatever; but he can't make the rest of us ignore what is obvious. Most conservatives are against violence, so please don't use the Misleading Vividness fallacy against us.

And what is on your? People are born with deformities... think of it as conjoined twins or a third arm. People are born with the wrong sex organs. By all other accounts, they are a certain gender. There are trannies who you would never know were the opposite gender. So it's only what's obvious? I know a young boy in high school who was gay and thought of himself as a girl. He had no interest in girls whatsoever. But he would get beat up in the boys restroom. So what is he supptto do? You want to talk about tolerance? These aren't common sense laws to ensure anything. They're discriminatory. Aren't you worried about female perverts in the men's room? Probably not.

And I know you're female how? Anyway, as to your question, in a word YES. From an objective standpoint if you are tolerant, then intolerance is on of the things you would tolerate. You don't have to like it or agree with it or even understand it to tolerate it. That's the whole point of tolerance. If you can't see that, it's because you refuse to. Remind you of anyone?

Octavia, the problem is that you're operating under a moral relativist philosophy.
reply
3 ups, 1 reply
Yes I am. Do you not think morality is relative? If it's not relative, then something that is wrong is always wrong, and something that is right is always right. How about killing? Is that always wrong? Then what about self defense, war or capital punishment? How about lying? Is lying always wrong? I think Anne Frank would say there are times when dishonesty is necessary to save lives. I could go on.

So if you were hiding Jews from the Nazis and the Nazis asked you if you knew where any Jews were, you would consider it immoral to lie to the Nazis?

Absolutely, yet I would do it, and i would be extra pissed at them for making me do it. It would also be dishonorable not to kill those nazis on the spot, but it would likely be strategically unsound, so I would bide my time with no illusions about being forced to compromise myself. Having accepted the reality, I'd put it aside and keep a clear head til I could complete the task. And yes, killing is wrong and i would be ticked at them for making me do that too.

It just occurred to me, I HAVE to be tolerant of your religion, I HAVE to be tolerant of your sexual tendencies, gender identity - basically the way you were born. You one the other hand see no reason to care about my feelings, nature or tendencies? I am how I was born, some stuff turns my stomach, whether it's heavy gore or two dudes makin out, but you have ZERO tolerance for my sensibilities and that's just fine? Hypocritical much?

People with your sensibilities have been in control long enough don't you think? I mean you guys have been oppressing people in this country since before it was a country with no regard to how the others feel. That's 200+ years of us having to care about your feelings. But come on. It's 2017 and this Puritanical, post-mother England ish needs to be put to rest. We are intelligent, evolved human beings now who need to stop denying people basic civil and human rights just because what they may or may not be doing behind closed doors offends our religious or societal expectations. And the "I know I am but what are you" defense is just not really working here.

Ya, what do you know about my sensibilities? Essentially nothing, you can't even look at other posts for THIS meme to see that I said I don't care what consenting adults do behind closed doors. There are grown men (maybe women) who drink like breast milk directly from lactating women. There's all kinds of kinky shit. I don't care, I just don't want it forced in my face. You have no right to do that to me, just like no one has the right to, i dunno let's say put PSAs on TV about gayness being evil or curable or against their god or whatever cuz it's in your face. I don't wanna see that shit either. What I said wasn't a defense, I have nothing to defend. I think both of the mainstream sides in this debate are intolerant. You just wrote you're tired of caring about other people's feelings but they should care about yours? What are you 3 years old?

Lol! Forcing it in your face how? Who's forcing you to watch grown people drink from lactating breasts?? I don't give a rip if you care about my feelings or not. I know that you don't.

I actually really dislike organized religion, and if movies that were church (or whatever they call it) propaganda were labelled as "religious" i would freakin love it, and avoid them like the plague and everyone would be happier for it. If it's historical religion i might watch it, some of those are cool, some are god awful (haha). Specificity of content should be provided with as much detail as possible. People pay for review sites, which go into extreme detail as to any and all possibly objectionable or parentally concerning material. We shouldn't have to pay extra for advisory warnings. Hell some movies say nudity, and when i watch it and find out it's just some guys butt, i feel cheated, I'd like that to be specified too. Even the type of humor, some people like dirty jokes some people really don't. Offensive is to broad a category. If everything were clearly marked you'd likely find people had a lot less to complain about. Movies would all probably get higher rating because no one would hate rate them for being surprised by something they didn't like.

It would be impractical to label any TV show or movie so specifically that any possible offensive thing would be included. And like you said, what's offensive is not specific, or objective. To some people "go***mn" is offensive. To some it isn't. The list goes on for miles.

and that list it should be available upon request, it already is, but I have to go to a specific site and hunt down a movie, whereas IMDB could just as easily have it without my having to go thru user reviews.
