Sat Oct 05, 2002 7:05 am

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.

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....

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?

In my opinion, wanting to have a gay gathering does not equate to singling out one's self, or according one's self special treatment. There's nothing wrong with a group of people who share a common background and point of view getting together for a social event. I don't believe the thread's author meant to exclude anyone from this group, he was simply sending a call out to fellow gay a.netters to organize a meeting. Now, if straight a.netters felt excluded, then the proper thing to do would be to ask if they may be included in the group. I fail to see how Deltaflyertoo tried in any way to single out being homosexual.

I also wanted to ask you guys to keep this conversation civil. It has the potential to turn into a ugly fight, but this can be avoided if we refrain from attacking and instead concentrate on proving/disproving the views being expressed. Thank you.

Alright you homosexual idiot, you honestly want me to believe that if I suggested a hetero A-net gathering, and was not being sarcastic about it, you wouldn't cry the loudest about exclusion and intolerance? Give me a break.

The difference is simple. If there is a meeting in Chicago, Frankfurt, Crapchester, Bugaha ect, they are just a location. NOBODY is saying anyone from Chicago can't fly to Bugaha to meet up. Nobody is saying in Chicago, only gays meet up for an A.net meeting. That is pretty clear.

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'?

What are you talking about? I would have the same reaction to an all "Christian" meeting, or all 23 and older ect, and I would not delete such a thread.

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.

2 things in common...I can buy that. I understand that. At the same time, all I am saying is that as a striaght person, I hear allot about gay rights, and fair treatment and all that. And by all means, that is how is should be, and all I am SAYING, is why, single yourselves out to just have a gay meeting, if we should all be tolerant of each other? I love looking at planes as much as the next guy...gay, straight, black, Arabian, ect. And I am not grabbing anything, because I am not offended by anything here, just trying to make a point. And "us vs. them", that might be you trying to make that distinction.

Answer the question, Turbine and KROC....if the thread was about a "Christian" A.Net gathering, would you have made the same comments?

Well, as I read your post in the parts i highlighted to respond too, I already answered this question before even reading it.

Why do you need a gay A.net gathering? You can kind of see through the underlying theme in a gay a.net airliners gathering...to hook up. It would be like saying there is a singles only a.net gathering, which the goal and underlying theme would be the same...to get some. C'mon guys, this isnt match.com. How do gay aviation enthusiast's views differ from the rest of us? Do they all think that the 737-300 is the best plane or something? Are your views on the aviation world that much different than a straight persons? This is an aviation forum, not a dating service. I know that this post wont be popular, but I feel that it is the truth. I would say the same thing if someone brought up a straight/black/Christian/Jewish/amputee a.net gathering.

I am trying to help gays be equal, because they want to be equal.

Great. I take it you've written your congressman to support ENDA, the employment non discrimination act, which forbids by federal law firing someone because of their sexual orientation? And I'm sure you strongly oppose DOMA, the "defense of marraige act", which federally refuses to recognize any kind of legal union between same-sex partners? And the military! Clearly you believe gay men and women should be able to serve their country proudly and unmolested from harassment and discharge!? And adoption by gay couples.......!

...why do I think, based on comments and idealogy you've offered in the past here, that the answer to all of these points is "NO"? And yet on this thread you have to pull the Internet equivilent of strolling into a gay bar and proclaiming that if we all want to be "equal", we should shut the place and wander on over to TGI Fridays where everybody knows your name, and everyone's the same....that is until we actually have the audacity to say we're gay. A big ol' cheery meeting till we have someone chime in with "Is this a joke?"(21 posts up) or "Id comment but I'd be banned" (19 posts up). How many times have I seen it..."I don't have a problem with gay people, they just need to keep it to themselves....they dont need to shove it in my face....." Then guess what? You've got a problem with gay people. Butch up to that fact.

Somebody actually posts an idea for us to get together and, in complete acquiessence to your demands, "keep it to ourselves" and what happens? What do you guys think you're doing!?

And I'll say it again....if this thread had any other word then "gay" in its' title, the "oh please, you people" posts from the dependably conservative regulars here would not have been made. And your credibility suffers greatly if you insist that they would. Anyway, that's that. These are ugly days we're living in and I'll not pretend I've changed any points of view here with my reasoning.

And yes, I'd love to be a part of a gay A.Net Meeting That's Open To Anyone Who Doesn't Mind Gay People NOT Keeping It To Ourselves. My first vote is for EYW, though I must say the heavy metal action at the airport is a bit thin (A great study in Brasillias and ATRs though!). So second option would be MIA, which still floors me on its variety and bustle. Cheers.

So I answered the questions you posed Heavymetal in a manor in which you did not want to hear, yet I was honest. Because of this, according to you, my credibility will falter, in essence you are calling me a liar. Outstanding. Believe it or not, some people, straight people, can see past the lables of "gay" "bi" and "straight", even if you can't.

I know that about straight people, KROC. And the ones who can didnt bother to even come into this thread. And far be it from me to call you a liar. I just find it hard to believe thats all. Clearly I'll be proved wrong when and if one of my hypothetical topics does find its way aboard this forum.

What's wrong with having a gay airliners.net meeting? There are experiences in the aviation industry that are unique to gay people, women, Chinese (in countries where the Chinese are not the dominant ethnic group), etc etc etc. In the legal world there are networking organizations for gay lawyers. Many are support groups that offer career advice, networking opportunities and assistance in cases of outright discrimination. Similar organizations exist for women, ethnic and racial minorities or any other group that represents individuals who are different from the norm. And, no, contrary to what Jcs17 may think, these groups are not designed for people to "hook up." If that were true then every organization would be a way for people to do the backstroke in bed.

As to the person who suggested that there be a similar group for fascists, idiots, racists, etc., I guess you don't have to look very far. There are plenty of those on here, and way more out there in the real world.

So, what you are trying to say is that our views on aviation are so diametrically opposed that you need a separate a.net meeting...makes a lot of sense.

You are making cases out professional organizations...I dont think that the views of gays on these boards have been put down or discriminated against in any way. I have yet to see the response "Oh, youre gay, so your opinion doesnt matter..." Dude, if you want equality, you must first strive to act as an equal, and stop making such a big deal about sexual preferences.

I'll stand by my prior statement, if there was ever a singles a.net gathering (whether it be straight or gay), and was labeled as such...the motive behind it would be 90% sexual. I dont buy it for a second that this isnt sexually motivated. If it wasnt...why couldnt straight people go?

No, I never said that our views on aviation are so diametrically opposed that we need a separate meeting. You said that.

And, as far as striving to act as YOUR equal . . . Good God, No !! I'm actually miles ahead of you judging by the gobbledygook you spew (but then so is a sack of meal, so that aint much to crow about). I would never want to strive to be anything like you, so get that out of your little 16 yr old head. As far as being accepted as an equal, I already am professionally and socially. So come back to me in 20 years, when you notch a few achievements in your belt and then talk to me about equality. Until then I'll decide whose company I wish to keep, gay or straight.

Just the fact that you had to criticized me shows how flustered and insecure you are whenever someone questions your ideas. In my previous post can someone point out where I made a personal attack on Jaysit?

Praise Jesus, once in awhile I need a good reminder why I left Dallas

Huh? I dont get it. You left Dallas because people didnt agree with the view you posted on airliners.net? You left Dallas because many people's views did not concur with yours?

Ive hardly lived in Dallas for 3 months.

This is a ridculous idea, however well intentioned by Deltaflyertoo. As a gay man my life has been devoted to integration, not segregation. I routinely invite my str8 and gay friends to str8 or gay bars. Mix it up! I would glady meet the most anti-gay member of this forum at STL to spend an hour or so spotting because regardless of where we prefer to put our genitalia, everyone on this forum has ONE THING IN COMMON, the love of aviation.

*yawns* (still tired from partying)

Hey guys I think a *gay* a.net gathering would be a hoot!

As Bent said, three of us (inlcuding JSMITH) get together every now and then and have a great old time. Anyone else in oz would be more than welcome to attend.

On the flip side of the coin, why are there always people who still feel they have to contribute something negative to any gay thead? And one as simple as asking if any of the gay members would like to get together?

*sighs - shakes head and wonders why he still bothers visiting*

Jsc17 -

If you had anything remotely intelligent to say when you question others ideas then I would be "flustered and insecure." But the truth is that your ideology forces you to take a comment and construe a conclusion out of it without offering a basis for your logic or reasoning. Also, it is apparent that you have problems understanding simple arguments and hypotheses, and get rather flustered and confused yourself. Your bizarre conclusions at any and all the comments posted above are fair evidence of that. At first I thought that, perhaps, you have strong beliefs and your zealotry blinds you. But I've realized that if you can't even understand heavymetal's comment above, then there is something else - a problem processing complex (and simple) ideas, perhaps. Its very sad, but there is no point in responding to you anymore. Its like talking with a pet rock or a lump of anthracite. But you do have my heartfelt pity.

what if deltaflyertoo rephrased his topic..... 'gay get together at an airport' e.t.c........ would that make it better?
all this fuss over jack $hit!

Lets just get on with it.....

what airport? when? who? e.t.c. e.t.c....

I would attend, but as i am in the UK, it may be a bit diffcult- but i will try!

I'll be happy to attend if it's being held in or near Southern California! Maybe do some spotting in LAX. Hey, Deltafliertoo, where abouts in L.A. do you live?

Chepos, did you just come out?

ANYWAY PEOPLE, obviously several people who posted here (for reasons that I personally can't find any logic in) simply don't understand why gay aviation fans might want to meet (NO, there's no underlying sexual reasons - if those who posted here were part of a minority or subgroup they'd understand). NONETHELESS, is someone going to take the lead and attempt to organize this or what?

Gee, I never intended for this to be the debate it turned into. Sorry for all those who felt offended or left out. That was not the intention. The reason I posted this was that over the past year I've noticed a lot of gay members on this forum. Most of them post some really good stuff. I just got to thinking....hmmm, I wonder what they all are like in person, I.E. personalities, backgrounds, etc. Throw in that that this aviation interest of ours is a common link, I thought it would be cool to know if there had been a gathering or an interest for one.

Yes, as some of you pointed it out, it would be unfair if there was just a straight gathering, and I see your point. And such a gay gathering would of course be open to all interested, not just gay. But the reality is....gays are a minority, maybe not in this board, but in society in general. Maybe there would be interests, or discussion that the other side just wouldn't understand. I assumed that most of you just wouldn't want to understand. Maybe I assumed wrong. I saw no other way to reach out and casually explore the issue than to post here. There is no other place on earth where you could find fellow gay friends AND airline enthusiasts all wrapped in one.

Sorry to anyone who felt alienated....never the intention. If anyone is interested in such a gathering, email me. I realize that you guys are from all over the world, so if anything, it would just be fun to speculate.
