I think that hiding ANY type of ... well... anything that there are currently hate groups for would be a good idea during the PAW.
In other words, dont advertise your sexuality, your religion, or ANY of that kind of stuff until you konw WHO you are dealing with in whatever group you have joined up with.
As far as "hate groups" or "hate mongers" go... listen... the HUMAN race is a race hell-bent on hating, and destroying itself. People will ALWAYS find a reason to hate one another. Race, Religion, Country of Origin, Sexuality, Gender, whatever... If you hate people who hate... is that any better?
I get approached from time to time from a hate group that I will not mention here... I think its because I shave my head and they think I am one of them... I try to explain that shaving my head does not make me one of them, and that its only a personal grooming choice.
But there are so many things in this world WORTHY of being hated...
Rape, Murder, Child Molestation, Hunger, Poverty, just to name a few... It leaves me wondering WHY people would waste the time/energy it takes to HATE other people just for such reasons as race, or sexual preferance.
Just because one does not choose to participate in a particular lifestyle, does not mean you should hate those that do.
Prime example is the topic here... sexuality. I am not gay... I love women WAY too much to ever be gay, and I think us guys are ... well... ugly. But you know what? That does not mean I should HATE people who ARE gay... that makes no sense to me.
Its like hating someone who likes a food that I dont... I hate Beets (yuck), my daughter LOVES them... and will eat them right out of the can... should I hate her because she likes a food that I dont?
I have traveled all over this country, mexico, and canada... and I have found one thing... that at thier CORE, people are just people.
Cultures may differ... religions differ... and colors differ... but many things remain the same.
People love their children. People want good lives for their family... and people want to survive as best they can.
But alas... its human nature to want to destroy that which it does not understand... including lifestyles, races, and religions that differ from their own.
Ok... Im gonna get off my soap box now... sorry
(dont hate me for it)
