  1. Support of human rights is a great thing. It is too bad that in so many parts of the world liberties and freedoms are not respected yet, and in some regions societies actually develop backwards. To be fair, even in USA it is not perfect, but still.

    1. The thing that makes America so great is that, after 200 years, we still think we came make it better and we are probably right. Most of the challenges we face right now can be fixed next November. The problem is so many of us are OK with how we see what’s happening with our world we’re not motivated to go vote the bums out. We really need to start paying attention and be informed. And vote in every election. Once.

    2. Back in my young and extremely stupid ” I hate America for this that and the other thing” days, my father told me if I hated it here so much to get out. He said, “I traveled quite a bit in the Army and you should know one thing… no matter where you go they have a word for ‘Nigger.’ Even most parts of Africa, you’re a black American? You’re a ‘Nigger.’ At least in America most people know it’s a vulgar word.”

        1. Not as much a pain in the ass as one who doesn’t proofread before hitting the post comment button. Hey, I’ve been there and hate that MDN’s commenting does not allow for edits.

  2. I will never understand why someone’s sexual preferences are something to discuss at work.

    Why do a few want to make the majority ponder on the importance of their turn-ons, whatever they may be?

    Seriously, there is more that defines a person, unless that is the ONLY thing you live for….

    1. If your spouce was terminally ill, would it be appropriate to tell your co-workers? How would you feel is someone told you that it wasn’t appropriate and to keep your sexual relationship to yourself?

    2. If everyone kept their personal lives entirely out of the work environment then I’d agree with you. People don’t though. They talk about their spouses, their kids, all sorts of personal stuff. As such, a LGBT person doing exactly the same as everyone else is doing isn’t really something to complain about.

      1. Then please try and enlighten us all as to what you are talking about, because the only mentions of sexuality I see in the office on a regular basis are straight guys talking about which woman they’d like to get it on with. Neither I nor any of my LGBT colleagues do anything similar, even though we’ll happily talk about family, partners, events, etc. if they come up in general conversation.
