Interesting developments in OSLR forum

Apparently there was a "gay parade" photo thread that bigots got their hands on, and it caused the thread to be deleted. Not a very smart move on the part of the board, IMO. Bigotry must be given no quarter.

Surgical deletions are best served, IMO. But then I started reading and found out it was a post with dozens of photos in it, which I actually saw last night I think. The damn post wouldn't even load. I've seen other gay parades posted and I guess some anti-gay morons just didn't get it until now.

It's interesting that most of the responces to the ??deleted?? thread
were supportive of the "Delete the bigot not the image" thought frame.

Bigotry can only be countered with sensitivity and surgery.

Well...

Actually, I'll admit that I am biggoted towards certain things, and such, but, I am trying to better myself.

I'm no where near where I probably should be I don't think, but I'm fighting decades of building blocks, and like smoking, it's an uphill climb.

BUT HEY!!!

I got no problem with anyone here!!! :D
