But yet promote anything straight and you're immediately branded a bigot & a homophobe...

Nobody has ever said there’s something wrong with being straight. Governments and religions have never persecuted or killed people because of heterosexuality.
Live and let live my dude.

What does this have to do with television? And when did the United States government kill people for being gay?
Stonewall. And basically Harvey Milk.

Maybe like, read a book or something.

its not, nor has it ever been illegal to be straight. Straight people have never been persecuted, murdered, beaten, etc for being straight. You’ve not been told your whole life that you’re wrong, broken, sinning, etc. for being straight. But go off.

also, you act like the Rambo series doesn’t exist


That's a red herring argument... I believe the point was that people who would prefer to celebrate traditional marriage and not having the LGBT agenda forced on them are not allowed to have a voice without without severe backlash.
I believe the above commenter was saying “live and let live” as in don’t throw a pity party because we aren’t actively celebrating being straight or whatever.
If you don’t like something and ignore it, guess what? No “severe backlash”. Complain about others celebrating how far they have come in society? Can’t really complain when you get some backlash.

Maybe reread his post. Where did the government kill a lgbt person? Harvey Milk was murdered by a deranged idiot.

Nice red herring. I never said anything to the contrary did I? I said that if you say that you're proud to be straight, white or male these days you're immediately branded a bigot or a homophobe as *** did regardless if that is true or not.
