I'm still relatively new to Pinside but being this is the first time I've seen this thread I must say if you you are a homophobe, biggot, or any of the other racist against these individuals.....LEAVE.
I'm a Caucasian, middle aged, heterosexual make. I've always considered my self to be a " Conservative " and always voted Republican.
I say these things because in today's society there is so much negative floating around the LGBT community on-lookers. I have a gay uncle and to be honest you, couldn't pick him apart out of a hundred " straight " individuals. I am aware like every gender, ethnicity, and so on....you are going to have some extremes or people who push the envelope but MOST of the gays, lesbians, and all the others ( sorry I can't remember all the terms ) just want to lead their lives in which is their God given right. If they want to start their own thread, let them do it. I'm pretty sure when I signed up for this forum I saw nothing that excluded them. This sight is to bring the pinball community closer and to reach out to one another, not to bash folks on their sexual orientation.
....and to be honest to all you bashers, I've seen PLENTY of stupid a__ threads on here your small feeble minds can go and attack or....or...take a long walk off a short cliff.
