No one is saying one thing outweighs another; any time a person's life is unnecessarily put in danger, we should make ourselves aware of it and do what we can to help.
One of the biggest responsibilities, in my view, that gay people and those who love them (and you know who you are
) have is to bear witness to the crimes against "our own" because we've learned all too often that no one else will. That's what Daniel was doing (I believe) when he started this thread -- making us aware of crimes being committed. He did this because he knows I care and would want to know and that others care and would want to know.
The fact that you, kimmyd, don't care is irrelevant to me. What is not irrelevant is coming into "our house" and shooting your mouth off about the fact.
There are guidelines on this site, which I believe you've broken. I hope your privilege to post is revoked, but it is not my decision to make.
