Has there ever been an A. Net gathering for the gay members on this board? If not, probably would be cool....

I love it, Gays are always talking about how everyone is equal, and they should be treated equally. Well, they should be treated equally, we're all the same, just different sexual preference, so why should you gays have your own gathering? I thought you guys were trying to get people to be more respectful, and include you, so don't single out your sexuality group.

Please people he was just making a statement, maybe trying to be funny or just trying to speak his mind. If you didnt like the topic wouldnt it be easier to just ignore it and continue looking through the threads, if you dont like topics posted just learn to ignore them and continue your merry own way.
Right now Im undergoing the effects of medicaton so I hope I made sense (dosent it suck to get sick on the weekends)- but I digress.

Yeah....whats up with that? I kinda noticed people being on the homophobic side themselves. They just like to be nosy though, and stick in there 10cents since they always end up saying to much. If people just showed some respect to eachother it would this board so much more pleasent. When people say these nasty snide comments, they seem to forget that a fellow human being is sitting on the other side of that screen seeing those NASTY words. Personally...reading it worse than hearing it.


On a happier note. I think a gathering would be great. Sounds like it would be alot of fun. I would love to attend. lets see some dates and places.  Smile Sean, where do you fly out of of? MYF? SEE?

Nothing "homophobic" has been said in this thread, but rather an attitude of "why a 'gay' A.net meeting". Someone brought up a very good point about gays wanting to be seen as equal, equal rights and treatment and so forth, and that should happen, BUT why single yourselves out, and have a 'gay' meeting? What, us straight people from the site don't like airplanes as much as you? You can bet, that is there was ever a 'serious' straight A.net meeting, there would be a serious front opposing that. I never quite understood, how gays don't want to be labled and such, but they are the first ones to do it.

Thankyou KROC for being so level-headed, I'm really glad we have you as a mod. NOBODY is being homophobic here, as far as I am aware (at least I'm not). I just don't understand why you need a 'special' A.net gathering JUST for gay people, really doesn't make sense to me....

I understand what EGGD saying, but I understand what DeltaFlyer is saying too. Its just like a club I guess. And some of us are just not members.. I am not. I'm not a homophob. Hey EGGD for the list of meetings, can I attend the "moaners" meeting?

Considering this idea it seems as if all the meetings we had at the airports so far were "straight males only" so the next "meeting @ airport" topics must say "Meeting @ XXX on XXX Males / Females / Gays /Lesbians only"...

After all we go there to watch planes together...  Insane

Based on that logic, you homophobic idiot, no church in America has a right to congregate this Sunday. Football fans may not gather in stadiums. And the little patch of grass at the end of the runway is off limits to aviation fans.

Please give us a list of "approved gatherings" when you rule the world, won't you?

I would be happy just meeting other aviation enthusiasts. Yes, I am gay, but if there is an A.net gathering at PDX or SEA I will be there regardless of race, gender, national background, sexual orientation, views on Isreal, or ANYTHING!

And here we have a bitter gay person who would rather insult, that understand the simplicity of the statement. You see, you don't have to eb a football fan to enjoy a game. You don't have to be say Catholic, to go to a Catholic Mass. BUT, you do not have to be "gay" or "straight" to meet up with a group of people, and enjoy watching and or talking about airplanes. So I repeat, for the bitter ones, I am not homophobic, but I find no reason to create groups for something as small and simple as love of aviation. Take that as you will, just leave you bitterness........for whatever reason, at the door.

KROC,

First off, your first post. Well said, very well said. It is was I was trying to say, however, I got labeled "homophobic" because I am trying to help gays be equal, because they want to be equal. As you said, why should they strive so hard for equality and being able to blend in, when they then turn around and separate themselves?

People, I'm not saying there is anything WRONG with a Gay A.net meeting, but why seclude the straight people? Isn't this website about Airplanes, not sexual preferences?

Heavymetal,
Relax, calm down. Since when do you have to be a diehard football fan to go to a game? I was making a point, I was not and am not homphobic. No, I'm not gay, but I don't hate gays. I don't see why you are trying so hard to insult me, when I was helping your cause. Pointing out something.

i think the discussion in this thread is absolutely rediculous...
deltaflyertoo, was simply trying to see whether it would be feasable for a gathering at some airport for the gay community on airliners.net........ now im sure that the get together would not solely include gay people, and that str8 people would deffinately be welcome at the gathering.

Airliners.net is not just about planes....... i agree- it is the reason many people are here, but cant you just consider the possibility that people have other interests in life than just planes, and that some people use airliners.net as a way of socialising and making new friends- finiding people with things in common, be it gay, lesbian, BMW cars, jelly fish.... whatever!

And anyway..... it was posted in the non aviation forum- using some of your logic- the only discussions within this forum should be aviation related!!! which is obviously dumb.

Just remember- people do have lives, and they may not (much to your dissapointment) revolve around this website, and if there is to be a gay airliners.net gathering........ let it be! If you want to attend, then go, no one is stopping you, or forcing you!
Look at the airliners.net forums as a community of people! And within that community- people from all walks of life, with different interests!

Leave my bitterness at the door? Helping my cause? Uh uh. You're both way off on this one.

If someone had posted a thread identical to this entitled "How about a Christian A.Net gathering?", and I proceeded into that thread, with the safe assumption that nothing in it would interest me, and posted about how we're all decent people of various faiths and beliefs and why do you people have to have a special 'Christian' gathering? ...that post would be rightfully deleted as 'flamebait'. Yet because it's a 'gay' meeting, one is allowed to come in and 'make a point'?

My point which afterburnered right over your skulls was that a group of people getting together, whether in a church, a football stadium ...or at an airport bar as the 'gay A.net meeting'....do so because they have something in common. A group of Airliners.Net members getting together have something in common. A group of GAY Airliners.Net members have TWO things in common, don't they, and by your attitudes, one of those things would be inappropriate for the first group. And in any case, KROC, where in the original post did it say "ONLY gay A.net members, straight people not allowed"? I think you're desperately grabbing at something to be offended by , in true "us versus them" ignorance.

Answer the question, Turbine and KROC....if the thread was about a "Christian" A.Net gathering, would you have made the same comments?
...."Hey I'm not anti-Christian or anything but why do you guys all want to have your own little exclusive club?"
