This bunch of deviant/abnormal things!

网易辽宁大连网友:

No big deal. As long as one is happy, then it is fine. At least, they can be themselves. Nor are they obstructing/disturbing other people.

网易广东广州网友:

Those people criticizing homosexuality, are you guys noble? Don’t tell me that you guys finding prostitutes and playing women is complying with nature’s law! Homosexuality is common amongst gorillas and other animals [evolutionarily] close to humans, a kind of common natural phenomenon! Foolish ignorant people, you do not have to accept it, but can you guys please not hurl abuse! Everyone has the right to choose their own lifestyle, and if one day homosexuality becomes mainstream, won’t your heterosexuality and playing women also be labeled as foreign species, garbage, scum, etc.??? Those who are criticizing/condemning are pitiful! And sad!!!

网易四川成都网友:

Boli [玻璃, literally “glass” but here means “gays/homosexuality”] is not illegal, but I definitely despise boli.

网易上海网友:

Men and women coming together to create the next generation is of course not the only goal, but what we can be certain of is, God create people so that only men with women can reproduce the next generation, and not men with men and women with women. If the latter were possible, wouldn’t it have been easier for God to just have created one sex? So, do not violate God’s will, it will bring down Heaven’s wrath, Heaven would not approve!

Every person has a way of facing life and living life, and no one has the right to meddle with it. Even if you want to meddle in it, you wouldn’t be able to, so please respect the lifestyle of all the people around you! Hurling abuse at and belittling others shows that you are uncivilized and lack proper upbringing!!! No one can guarantee whether or not their descendants will be homosexuals. If your children were homosexuals, what will you do? Have you already criticized/condemned your children here??? Do not use your own ignorance to harm other people!!!

网易广西南宁网友:

From the moment I have become aware of things, I only know that only men and women can XXOO [have sex].
Women with women, that is called deviant/abnormal.
Men with men, that is called disgusting/gross + deviant/abnormal.

网易湖北武汉网友:

Seeing the majority of people’s situation as reasonable, but seeing the minority of people’s actions as unreasonable. Seeing heterosexuality as natural law, but discriminating against homosexuality is yet another example of this tendency/trend.

网易河南郑州网友:

Homosexuality is simply against the natural law, a bunch of sick people, a perverted/deviant group of people!

网易广东广州天河网友:

Homosexuals should indeed be sent into a concentration camp to be humanely destroyed, otherwise [they will] infect AIDS and whatever everywhere…

网易天津网友:

Having a disease/problem [referring to homosexuality] is not your fault, but coming out to disgust people is not right!

网易黑龙江哈尔滨网友:

May those homosexuals quickly contract AIDS, so this world can once again return to normal, thank you.

网易辽宁盘锦网友:

There have always been a lot of people who are puzzled about this special group, so if you’re going to have a parade, have a parade, but when each of you make it like SM [sadomasochism], do you think this is going to help people accept you guys, sympathize with you guys???

Love does not discriminate over sex, as long as two people who love each other are together, why must it be heterosexual? Sometimes, only when both are the same sex can there be even better communication and understanding. There is nothing right or wrong about homosexuals, only mutual love, so why can’t they be together? What is the reason for it being wrong?
To like a person is to like that person, and not their sex….

网易广东广州网友:

Those homosexuals are truly TM disgusting. Especially the fake men [female cross-dressers?], just seeing them makes me want to beat them up, the pussy/cunt on your body is completely a waste of resources!

网易江苏网友:

Homosexuals, as long as they do not affect other people, why is it necessary to look down upon them?
