    Look around you, and wake up. Men homosexuals don't like women. I think it is time to examine why there are so few women in the sciences, and upper levels of business. I am aware that many science departments have a bias towards gay men and against women (gay or not). It is easy to pick them out. They have a larger number of women students at all levels (even PHD programs) than men, but have hired very few women as professors. The same is in business. Lots of women at all levels except as decision makers.

    OH JOHN!!!: I think you are intelligent, funny, and the show has weight to it. SO... it should not be a stretch to say I violently disagree with you. Brother, get OFF your soapbox. In my lifetime, I've seen the pendulum swing from one extreme to the next... and they NEVER were the right way to end up. I KNOW all sorts of Gay people... worked with all sorts of Gay people... in my mind, THEY CHOOSE to make the ground into MUD! They had the "partners act" (in California), BUT NO!!! It wasn't good enough! When I lived with my girlfriend, I couldn't get those rights... so much for equality! I'M TIRED of the Gay Agenda! I wish we could go back to a day, when all Gay people were in the "closet" and we didn't HAVE to have an opinion about this crap! SERIOUSLY... haven't we got better things to do than have our every waking moment taken up with what Gay people think is important? I define a clean slate by civil discourse and the right for people to disagree. The facts are this... The Gay Agenda wasn't OK with the State of California saying NO to Gay marriage. So they got one of their closeted judges to pass it behind our backs... so much for democracy! Now we are being socially bullied into agreeing with them,.... even IF we choose NOT to agree... that's social Fascism... where is the homosexual swastika? I recently went to USclip and looked at some film previews... one was a comedy (I guess) about a lesbian who sleeps with an older guy and still claims to be gay (you'd think she'd have figured it out by now, yes?), another one had a Caucasian women, an African American woman and a hispanic woman possibly not caring about WHO they took up with. YES... I have a choice... and I won't patronize anything with a gay message! I choose my sense of freedom... and they can patronize theirs. As a "straight" person, I've rolled with the punches when a fate, less than happy, occurred in my life. Being "straight" never got me out of trouble, nobody bailed me out or changed an existing law, because I didn't see things like everyone else did. The Gay Agenda says... "this is my ass... now kiss it, because I'm too lame to bear with reality, like everyone else." I respect my gay friends... because they're good people, NOT because I'm PC! WHen the pendulum swings back around again... when we are living in a world like the 1950's.... and it's ALL been repealed... I'll be very happy indeed.

    "There are some things which are too important to leave up to individual states" How true! Some things like universal human rights, rights to privacy and freedom from discrimination must be on the federal level.

  • Fab Elger
    Fab Elger 5 days ago

    sry, John but you getting things mixed up here....FIRING someone for being gay...THAT is discrimination. A restaurant owner saying I don't want to serve gay people is NOT. Its a shopowner making use of HIS rights to serve and not serve WHOMEVER HE wants. THAT is not discrimination. Firing someone IS.

    • VengfulDarkness
      VengfulDarkness 3 days ago +2

      You can argue that the restaurant owner is in the wrong because they could easily have a sign that says "No Blacks" and that would be very equivalent to saying "no gays". We have agreed a "no blacks" sign is discrimination. The only one I don't agree with John on is the Cake baker. The cake baker does not want to serve a custom cake at a gay wedding which can easily be argued is art. It would be the same as forcing an artist to paint you something, or forcing a tattoo artist to give you tattoo on your genitals even if they don't feel comfortable about it.

      It gets into murky waters on forcing people to create things vs serving something that already exists.

No different to not providing care to someone because of your colour or religion or nationality. If you do that, you don't deserve to be a doctor. That child was denied it's rights to medical care.

    Thank you Mr. Oliver! I know this vid is 3 yes old or something, but it spoke volumes about my life. Those f'n bullies, who think we are some sort of pervy monster, was a HUGE reason why I waited nearly 40 fucking years, in this body that depresses the fuck out of me. I have Finally came out recently, and it felt amazing just to ACT like the true me.... But the fact that I was so scared to come out, for this long, is going to make it very hard to look as feminine as I feel on my inside. Those bullies are just the scum of the earth!!!

    If someone really don't want to make you a cake for whatever reason offensive or not. I think it would be nice to know. That way you can get a cake made by someone else. No try to force someone into it. There are other bakers available.

    • Windy Hawthorn

      A decent Baker can bake a nice cake for a wedding in a day . It's not hard or difficult. What takes time is if you want a complicated cake with a lot of extras.

    • Sovairu
      Sovairu 11 days ago

      @Windy Hawthorn In a few days or fewer? No, one really can't. Edit: Anyway, the point is that they were not suing to force a Christian to go against his supposed religious convictions; they were suing to force a baker to make good on the business which he promised them. He merely chose to act like a putz who claimed to be "bullied," as it were, by two people whom he was legally supposed to help.

    Normalizing mental illness is a very bad idea.

      @Douglas Denham I do not care if being trans or gay is a mental disorder. Nowhere in my comment did I state any opinion for if being LGBT is a mental disorder. What I was trying to address is your clearly outdated view of mental illness.

      @DanielleThe road to hell is paved to good intentions. Being gay is just a very common disorder. Make no mistake it was listed as a disorder in the DSM until the late 1970s. All this trans nonsense comes from one very disturbed man who ran a clinic from Johns Hopkins. His name is John Money and all his ideas have been debunked. Even when the actual science unraveled his work your generation still latched into it. Why? Because feelings trump facts. History is not going to treat your ideas kindly

      Idk, normalizing mental illness is actually a good way to help people who are suffering get the help they need. One of the main reasons people with mental illness don't get help is because they are afraid of being labelled as a freak. Normalizing mental illness (and mental health in general) would both decrease suicide rates and increase overall public happiness.

      I know what you were trying to insinuate (that being gay is a mental disorder) but even at face value your statement is wrong.
