2. This is exactly why I got incensed

 

when someone said that the Orlando attack was all about white supremacy and not about anti-LGBT.

Serious question - Is there one among us that has not been harassed for holding the hand of our girlfriend or boyfriend? Do you know someone that was beat up on the streets? Do you know someone that was murdered in the streets or committed suicide because of bullying?

I have never met an LGBT that hasn't experience #1, too many that have known or experienced #2, and help us all, even one of #3 is far too damn many, and far too damn many have gone.

To pass that off as though it had nothing to do with LGBT community prejudices pissed me off to a point where I would have gotten banned if I really said what I thought.
