I think it's wise to understand that one person can disagree with another in matters such as these and not intend harm of any kind. Difference of opinion and disagreements do not automatically equate to the familiar insults,accusations and assumptions that seem to accompany these discussions. Once these start,it is pointless to continue. Both sides are guilty of this. Straight people become "omgwtfbbq homophobic right denying puritan close minded bigoted idiots" and GLBT people become "omgwtfbbq evil decadent agents of cultural and moral decay". This will never be solved by one group shouting down another. Maybe it will never be solved to our liking. I guarantee it won't if individuals don't give each other the common courtesy and respect everyone feels they deserve. Or something.

I don't know a single solitary queer person who treats "straight" and "homophobe" like synonyms. Not a one.

This is one of those cases where one side is just a little bit more wrong than the other, and simply "not agreeing" isn't going to cut it. Nothing short of treating everyone as a human being can be accepted when all is said and done. This is just a stepping stone to getting there. If heed was paid to those that "disagreed", women still wouldn't be allowed to own property, inherit, choose who they marry, or VOTE.It doesn't matter if you intend to harm or not. If you're harming, your intentions are useless.
