Quote from: Longfellow on October 16, 2009, 09:57:05 amI'm sorry, but "hate crimes" don't mean anything to me. People get beat up for being different all the time, why should I care if they just happen to be gay? There's nothing new about this, except that all the GLBT people will be screaming "ZOMG ZO NOT FARE!!!!!!11"
Quote from: LongFellowI personally just find gays sickening. Due to my whole heterosexuality thing going on. Not the people themselves, but the actual gay part -- I'm fine with most gays as long as they're interesting/good people. Same thing with blacks. However, where I live, most aren't. Which is really sad, IMHO.
Quote from: Longfellow on October 16, 2009, 10:34:36 amMy personal preference doesn't matter. I wouldn't care if someone got beat up for being Christian, heterosexual, tall, anti-Obama, et cetera. It's hate crime, and every demographic suffers from it. Deal with it.

QuoteConcern about hate crimes has become decreasingly prominent among policymakers in many nations and at all levels of government in recent years, but the phenomenon is not new. Examples from the past include Roman persecution of Christians, the Ottoman genocide of Armenians, and the Nazi "final solution" for the Jews, and more recently, the ethnic cleansing in Bosnia and genocide in Rwanda. Hate crimes have shaped and sometimes defined world history. In the United States, racial and religious biases have inspired most hate crimes. As Europeans began to colonize the New World in the 16th and 17th centuries, Native Americans increasingly became the targets of bias-motivated intimidation and violence. During the past two centuries, some of the more typical examples of hate crimes in the US include lynchings of African Americans, cross burnings to drive black families from predominantly white neighborhoods, assaults on white people travelling predominantly black neighborhoods, assaults on gay, lesbian and transgender people, and the painting of swastikas on Jewish synagogues, as well as attacks against European Americans, such as the Murder of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom and the Wichita Massacre.
QuoteHate crime laws generally fall into one of several categories: (1) laws defining specific bias-motivated acts as distinct crimes; (2) criminal penalty-enhancement laws; (3) laws creating a distinct civil cause of action for hate crimes; and (4) laws requiring administrative agencies to collect hate crime statistics.
Quote from: Fallen Angel X on October 16, 2009, 11:51:03 amHoly shit... (tl;tr)I do agree with WcW to a certain extent, since we can't be unified and diverse at the same time. So, it's only natural that events like this occur. Of course, that doesn't mean I approve of this sort of behavior (Like it matters if I approve or not ._.), in fact, I find it morally unethic to do things like this. Also, your rights and constitution apply mainly to the States. I live in Canada, so I have different rights, albeit similar. But, funny thing in Quebec, they never accepted Canada's charter of rights and freedoms. That basically means that they can reject a person from getting a job simply because they're a girl, black, or even being English. And the Quebec judicial system can't do a single thing about it. Though, you could still appeal to Canadian courts and then you'll get into major shit.
Quote from: RoseSkye on October 16, 2009, 12:28:16 pmNo its more like..."I don't care, but... since I know people on here disagree with this point of view I'll make them speak up about it and then flaunt my intellect as they do.".. yeah, you nailed it on that one too though.. but, its more of me looking like a hero when I'm actually being a dick. I mean WcW is so simple minded that I could predict his response.
