Oriol, Guess I told an untruth and came back. Thank you for the return comment,and if I was rude before, sorry, the truth is that I enjoy the perspective that each and everyone of you has on the topics of the world. As an hiv- straight guy who is married with children, it is nice to read the differing opinions of different people. I understand that you are homosexual, why is it that (it seems to me), looking from the outside in, that all the gay community talks about is gay rights? Are the issues of the serious recession we're in not in vogue to talk of, is it that you all still feel oppressed? Honestly not trying to be rude here, but give me a break, you guys seems to be crying an awful lot about proposition 8 when if the economy gets much worse all the hiv/aids orgs. will see budget cuts, typically first on the slashing table. If I know anything from my experience with gay people it is that you all are usually a very bright, intelligent, outside of the box thinking type people. The country could use your help on more pressing issues than gay rights, don't you think? Don't get me wrong, I understand the importance of basic human rights, gay marriage included, but Obama's pressing issues are highly unlikely to have anything to do with gay rights and hiv/aids. You don't plant flowers when your roof needs repairing, you don't wax your car when the engine is blown, do you see where I am going? The issues you guys want addressed are pressing and epidemic, but this country is in utter turmoil. Do you really think your sub-group, minority issues will make it to the top of the list anytime soon? Please take this for what it is ... I am not trying in any way to be hurtful. Thanks, Bobby T.
