Okay, for those of you saying that these people have no right to talk about their sexuality on a bus...There is a difference between talking about sexuality and talking about sex. This is an issue about equality. You say that you wouldn´t talk about your sexuality on a bus...but really? Have you ever talked about your husband/wife on the bus? How about your kids? How about a date? How about a boyfriend or girlfriend? Then you´re talking about your sexuality. Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) people have a right to talk about their lives and identify themselves as LGBT to whomever and whenever they wish. Just like you have the right to talk about your families and relationships to whomever you wish. It´s this kind of "DO AS I SAY, BUT NOT AS I DO, BECAUSE WE ARE SUPERIOR TO YOU, AND DON´T YOU FORGET IT" attitude that we all look down on when it comes to discrimination of any kind. It´s called prejudice. It´s called heterosexual privilege. It´s called ego-centrism. It´s a view of the world that says that everyone has to be just like you to be normal. Examine your attitude..
