I have noticed that there is not a lot of gay bashing in this thread as someone tried to predict earlier. I guess I am pleasantly surprised... Poles rule!

Right so to the subject of 'the attitude towards gays in Poland'

Something smacks me in the face as soon as i think about this situation, no its not a man's member, lol, sorry for the joke. On the seriuos side, Poland is 96% Roman Catholic, which does not 'accept' gay people into the church, now i could be wrong there but i'm sure i'm not. If i am i apologise in advance.

So going on the fact that 96% of Poland is Roman Catholic surely then Gay people will be outcast or constrained and have their human rights taken away. I'm not going to go into my own personal opinion on 'gay' or 'gay marriages' as its not relevant to this topic. However i can see why gay people may feel constrained in a country with a high percentage of 'roman catholic' population.

Somebody made the comment earlier in the topic that 'gay people make so much fuss about being different yet want to be seen as normal' they make a good point, instead of crying about this and that, lead our lives gay or not and get on with it :)

Sure, Poland should just give up their religion so that gays don't feel contrained....

(truth is the gays can do whatever they want behind closed doors, that should be enough for them) if they still don't like it.. I got a good solution, they can leave for the UK, they love gay people there........ better yet, how bout we just give them the entire Island (half the island is gay anyways lol, j/k) ..... It will be known as the land of the rainbows... no more discrimination, it will be a place where they can live in peace, reproduce(hehehe) and live happily ever after......

all joking aside, the gays have it just fine in Poland.... they should just keep everything private and don't parade around town, forcing others to accept you.... and they'll be just fine.....

I just googled UK homophobic attacks and tons of articles popped up decribing brutal crimes in the UK, I typed in Poland homophobic attacks and one or two articles popped up.... surmise what you will from this, but these are the facts........... but I leave you with this, which country has the problem again?

Where Are The WORLD's Biggest Homophobes?

From Gay Community News: Northern Ireland came out as the western world's most homophobic state in a paper interpreting statistics from the Human Beliefs and Values Survey. Prof John Mangan, co-author of the paper entitled Love Thy Neighbour: How Much Bigotry is there is Western Countries, conducted his research in 24 Western countries.

humanrightsfirst.org/discrimination/reports.asp?country=&id =25&misc1=survey-homophobia4

Just in London alone.......

There are national hate crime figures in the United Kingdom, but these do not track crimes motivated by bias based on sexual orientation. Within the United Kingdom, London's Metropolitan Police is the independent police authority with the most consistent and comprehensive monitoring on sexual orientation bias crimes

If your from the UK, first get your country in order before you jump on the high horse and point fingers....

Go f. yourself, you gay.

UK homophobic attacks

Don't forget that in UK that's probably means not mentioning contribiution of fags to culture and sience twice a day.

Probably because heterosexuals are rarely discriminated against

yeah great idea, just throw a parade, that will make you more accepted.... lol

can tell is to announce that these people don't feel that their lifestyle is anything to be ashamed of and, most importantly that despite what society says, they are proud of themselves.

Proud, sounds like they have low self-esteem, if they have this need to feel accepted by everyone....

Don't forget that in UK that's probably means not mentioning contribiution of fags to culture and sience twice a day

lmao, you never know with the British..........

This is because its more difficult to attack gay people in Poland as violence against the clergy is frowned upon.

Non catholic? Dump her arse? Where did you get that from?

There are no human rights constrained for gay people in Poland.

their path.. they didnt have any stipulations on keep it private or else..

did they say,, well since your jewish and we dont like jews or since your polish
and we dont like poles you either stay quiet or its off to the ovens and gas
chambers for you?

ever.. all gays were persecuted.. they all went as did the jews and poles. and
anyone who went against them..

True. They better sit in their closets instead of parading around Poland with their twinkies hanging out.

Parading around hmmmm.
Matters what kind of parading around we're talking about.

Someone pronouncing their homosexuality on the streets such as yelling it out or talking about inappropriate acts is clearly in the wrong.

The definition is hard to discern from just saying 'parading around' because some people would say if me and my partner walked down the street holding hands that would be 'parading around' where as I'd see that as something normal and acceptable.

If I can walk in public holding a girl's hand and not get a stare from those around me then clearly I believe I can do that equally with a guy.

I'm not asking for special consideration just an equal life.
Someone beforehand said that there are no laws against gays in Poland.
That can be true but I think the issue is about laws that allow gays to live as everyone else.

You can say we're different, as you can say a person of colour is different.
You can spout out stereotypes of the black gang mobster and the overly flambouyant promiscious gay man but even though they may exist they don't represent black people or gay people as a whole.
