Re: “Letters To The Editor: June 6 - 13

A funny thing has begun to happen in society in general – people are beginning to think of GLBT issues in the same manner they do race, ethnicity and whole spectrum of other issues that do NOT have anything to do with choice – that’s why “sexual orientation” is now a more prevalent terminology. I suggest Brian and Janice think of the Kennywood “incident” in that light. Additionally, you might want to review the Isaiah Washington controversy and see how that has all played out...”very few” people heard him use the gay-slur on the set of the show – but, it has resulted in him being written out of the show – placed in “sensitivity rehab” and marring the future of his career. I imagine Mary’s children will grow up knowing that acting similarly would be “wrong”...which is funny - because as adults you two are somehow able to “justify” intolerance in its many forms.

Re: “Homophobic material nixed from Kennywood dive show

PittRepublican: You are right...better the character be in the show - stereotyped and ridiculed - presenting that message to the masses versus invisible. The LGBT community suffering their form of black-face is clearly a better option than ANYONE taking any type of action. As far as your "Now, please DO NOT take my devil's advocacy here..." clearly you'll want to drop-off your powdered wig for dusting prior to debating whether any advancements in race, gender, ehtnicity, religious beliefs or sexual-orientation have taken place since the days when the First Amendment was written into the Constitution by the all white founding fathers.

Knuppster: AND, with that one commentary you have just touched upon what I see to be the demise of society - a total lack of concern for anyone else's sensitivities, feelings - or concerns. Me, Me, Me...I...I...I! "Mary" doesn't even fit into the category being disparaged...and, she was thoughtful enough to look out for another group (and their feelings) to do something about it. G-O-N-E are the days of common courtesy, compassion or thoughtfulness. Look around you – people are SHOCKED when someone is nice – it was once the other way around. In your case it sounds like you see ‘inclusiveness’ as pandering! Which it clearly is not.

Knuppster: I don't need to see the discrimination (or oppression - if that word makes you more comfortable) to know it for what it is. The same way I don't need to be hit by a bat to know it hurts.
