Actualy rustam, they had to demand their right to basic human rights like everyone else. Even people that were accused of being homosexual were persecuted like witches.
People that once had great honor and respect were now demonized and dehumanized with the introduction of judaism, christianity and islam. And that includes Women, Magicians, black-skinned people, AND HOMOSEXUALS.
Gays may no have been enslaved but it doesn't mean they were never oppresssed.
No more of this "I was oppressed more than YOU" stuff again. -_-' It doesn't help black people. It doesn't help ANY group of people at all.
I never said they weren't oppressed.
But homosexual never caught the hell Black people have and still are catching all over the world because of thier race.
Homosexuality is a sexual orientation.
Black is a RACE
There is no comparison.
Nor should we be compared to "magicians".
Plus, homosexuality has been condemned in most cultures around the world thorugh out history regardless of race.
Except for regional conflicts, Black people as a race weren't always looked down upon until the rise of white Supremacy.
BTW,Sorry if I sounded harsh, rustam.
You didn't sound harsh, just a little annoyed at my stance.
Comparing the gay struggle to the black struggle at some point breaks down. Gays could go out into general society and conceal their homosexuality. Blacks couldn't hide behind facades. Their visibility is what made them vulnerable to discrimination.
