I have decided that i would like to take the converse of visions debate "homosexuals are destorying the america".

Homosexuals have been around since the 13th century, but it was not aloud to be seen. Between 408 B.C.E to 400 B.C.E the famous ancient greek philosopher. From his publication of The Symposium, it showed acts of homosexuality. Plato expresses to "celebrate" the relationship between man and man. Even plato quotes that the symposium is a "manual" to homosexuality "The Symposium might be described as a manual for those embarking on the homoerotic-spiritual path" (Plato 268). Plato was said to be gay but it was never a proven fact.

Homosexuals all around us make the world just like us. They are great people who open doors for others. For example Roberta Achtenberg she was the first openly gay-lesbian offical for the United States. She was a civil rights leader/attorney. She recieved alot of awards. For example she won in 1997 one of the "50 Most Influential Businesswomen in the Bay Area"-bay area meaning san fransico bay area. Also in 1994 she won GLAAD Media Awards, Visibility Award. ALSO she was a founder for "the national center for lesiban rights" and was also awarded for that as well. She became a successful writer as well about sexual orientation.

She being a successful gay/lesbian how is that destroying america? Shes actually helping america by educating others about how it is okay to be gay. There are obstacles in life that you can over come. As long as your content with yourself thats what should matter. Unfortunately society is a cruel thing that we face everyday. You can be gay and successful and bring great ideas to the plate for the country.

I cannot debate this since last week I recently came out of the "closet" so to speak and have recently had intercourse with Javier Bardem.

Homos are not ruining America.

However, closet Conservatives (see: every Conservative alive) ARE ruining America.

Abolish gay Conservatives! Especially the ones who hate on other gay people just to project their own insecurities and low sense of self worth onto others!

Huzzah!
