It had a big circle in the middle of the page with a line through it. The words in the circle? LGBT. Underneath it I saw "No gays allowed!!! You're not wanted here!!!!" scribbled on the paper. I was going to sit there in spite of the paper, but my less-than-straight friend spoke in a panicked voice "You're killing me, Rachel! You're killing me! Let's go sit somewhere else." So we did.
Just because a person doesn't swing the same direction as you doesn't make them diseased. It doesn't make them a different species, and it doesn't make them less worthy to live.
I was disgusted when I read that paper and I found it completely unnecessary. I expect more of society.
