    *I did not mean to offend any gay black women firefighters with two or less fingers, who may or may not be legless, with the post i have submitted.
    But should a black female with all appendages firmly attached,who is not a Lesbian, decide to chop off 8 fingers and one and a half legs-- and then turn gay, she/he is to be given every encouragement and lots of Govt. money.

    Once again this topic is really unnessacray. I am addressing someone else post where they said something about having to got to sesitivity training becasue you made a joke and someone on your crew was gay. Well if they are there chances are they are going to be able to roll with the punches and take a joke. If you ever watch a firefighting show there is alot of joking around. Everyone learns to be the center of the joke once in their career of a firefigther. If they can't take a joke then they shouldn't be a firefighter. That goes for anyone. Straight/Gay/Bi/Male/Female/Race. It goes for anything and everyone. Another topic that I think is stupid and it has nothing to do with this and I don't want to stir anything up I recently was reading a post on another forum about Female firefighters. Once again it shouldn't matter. Ask yourself these questions when your in doubt. Can the do the job? Can they do the job well? Can they save my a** incase i get hurt and go down? If they can't take a joke then that is a topic you can discuss. That is what it all comes down to. Like someone else said the fire service is a family. So someone please kill this topic. I don't understand why today people have to be soo worried about the way someone was born or the way they live their lives. Thier life style is not a choice. Let everyone live their life and leave them alone. If they want to be a firefighter can do the job just as good as the next guy/girl then let them be.

    firehouse .com right. this is absolutley rediculous to me that this is a five page topic . i cant believe some of this banter has been allowed to continue . from some of the things ive read on here i find it very hard to believe some of these people [ very sensitive ] could deal with the way it actually works in a common day city fire dept.[ little room for touchy feely emotional types regardless of orientation.] good luck with some of this rationale. dead this topic , i personally dont believe this is the proper place and or format for it .. oppinion clearly stated . thank you .

    I dont know what the big deal is, I have a lot of friends who are L/G/B and havbe no problem with them. I work with them, go to school with them and see no diffrence with them. When we put on our uniform we are not black, white, straight, gay, we are in most cases Blue, or what ever color you uniform is. This post is alot like the BLue light one.... Pointless

    Default GAY FIREFIGHTERS???

    I dont get it, whats all the fuss about gay firefighters? Why the guys and gals around my dept are all happy and gay most of the time! Is this a problem I might have missed? And why would anyone so happy hide in a closet?


    God bless and pull the ceiling as you go.

But I kinda have a problem with them being on the front line just because of liability...

    Heterosexuals get AIDS just as much as homosexuals. Also, if you use your universal precautions you greatly reduce your chance of getting aids. Use your PPE, and get educated about aids. The comment you made was very uneducated.

    Good God. I can't believe I ever missed this thread. Of course, I wasn't searching for Gay Explorers in the Fire Service either. I'm not quite sure this is the correct message board to be chumming for that.
    Just know, I chose my own fate. I drove by the fork in the road and went straight.

    Are you for real??? You dig up a thread that is two years old, and of all the threads out there this one. Some people really make me shake my head. Just let it die man.
    If someone with multiple personalities threatens to kill himself, is it considered a hostage situation?

    I feel that if a homosexual male or female wants to become a fire fighter thats fine. I am straight however i come from a area with a very large homosexual community so i have no issue with what peoples sexual orientation might be. I will have no issue as long as they don't make advances towards me. A word of advice maybe to not make it to public cause not everyone is as understanding as others.

    Cool

    You'd probably be shocked if you knew how many gay firefighters, both career and volunteer, there are. ( Maybe, it's the guy right next to you .) If you've been around for awhile, you know it makes no difference in their abilities on the job.

    Just wondering though, does it bother you when a woman makes advances toward you???

    This topic ENRAGES me.
    Why the fcuk should it matter what you do in your personal life?!
    I worked along side an openly gay paramedic, and I would choose to work with him ANY day.

    The topic starter is a bigot, and coward.

    Whats next, Black Firefighters?
    Women Firefighters?
    Black, women, red headed step children firefighters?

The BSA has, for decades, tried in vain to instill good, decent moral values in young men (and women) I still remember my Boy Scout Oath: "On my honor, I will do my best, to do my duty to god and my country, and to obey the scout law: to keep myself physically strong, mentally safe and morally straight". (Or something like that. But what I am trying to say is, that homosexuality is wrong. If it were not, then all of society would accept it with open arms. There would not be a "Dont ask, dont tell" policy within the Armed Forces. Homosexuality is wrong, and it needs to be kept out of young peoples lives. The BSA should continue to teach and instill good values to young people, and the ACLU and all those other leftist bastards need to back the hell off....Where are we safe anymore??
    Unfortunately you are wrong on that count, the explorer program is part of the learning for life division of the boy scouts, and by law that division cannot discriminate on basis of sex preference, meaning, they cant force a police department or fire department that has an explorer post to discriminate against gays, since that would violate labor laws, the traditional side of scouts is still how you said it is. If it wasn't for the Mormon church making up such a huge portion of the membership of the BSA (read they give the most $$) then I guarantee you that the policy would change. It needs to. But I disagree with you on your stance of homosexuality being wrong, time to enter the 21st century.

    Who cares what every one likes. As long as everyone does their job and keeps their sexual desires to their selves, I really don't care if they engage in what ever activity that they like, just do your thing away from the station. I keep a single woman happy by what I do!!!
