Lest anyone think that our society has given into the notion that everyone needs to be categorized and that some categories of people are more deserving of special treatment than others and that anyone's "orientation" is deserving of a special night, let's ban theme nights all together.
Let's see, ladies night, stag night, singles night, couples night, childrens night, senior citizens night, and on and on and on. Ballgames, dances, movies, clubs, etc. all throughout the country have special nights for certain demographics.
I'm not saying that a lesbian/gay themed night in Miles City would be a wise decision, but let's not feign indignation at society's need to categorize. I don't believe that most people want special treatment for lesbians/gays, just as equal treatment as possible.
And please don't start quoting biblical passages to shore-up an argument of why her "orientation" is an abomination. Someday, it will be scientific fact that someone's orientation is biological, not psychological. When that happens, how will the hate be explained? It is not a choice. If it were a choice, how do you explain the following?
1.) The obvious statement, why would anyone choose a lifestyle that makes him/her the target of ridicule and hatred and often alienate him/her from family and friends.
2.) In different scientific studies, the brains of homosexual men responded like women's, and very different from heterosexual men's, when exposed to testosterone and estrogen compounds.
3.) The physical sterotypes that are so often joked about. Slight stature, expressive hands, lisps, feminine nature. They are sterotypes for a reason, because they are commonplace. Do you suppose that a man one day decides to be gay, and then morphs these physical characteristics?
4.) Sexual confusion from a very young age, way before a person is capable of making a decision to be gay. I have seen this first-hand. If you visit with a lebian/gay person, they will tell you they struggled with their feelings for as long as they can remember.
5.) Does a heterosexual person sit down and make a conscious decision to be heterosexual? I know I didn't. You are what you are. It isn't any different for a homosexual.
What will the argument be when science proves it is not a decision? Oops! We're sorry, but now that we know it is biological, let's screen all children in the womb and fix this defective gene!!! Give me a break!
