Quotes about lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people.
- God wants us all to just get along. He doesn’t give a shit about the profanity. The bitch fucking invented profanity. He thinks it is hilarious. He just wants you to talk to him, and he doesn’t care what you have to say. He just wants to keep the conversation going. Like Jay-Z, he just wants to love you. He just wants you to be able to make your own decisions. God is all about you and what you need. God is happy that you are gay. God made you fucking gay cuz he thinks it is awesome. God understands if you need to have an abortion. That is why he created abortion, on the 8th day. God accepts. God forgives. God loves all of us, even though some of us might have a problem with each other.
- With homosexuality added, it would be sparkling, unassimilable.
- I realize that gay people have put me on a pedestal, and I love it. Of all the oppressed minorities, they have to be the most oppressed.
- It's only gay if you push back.
- James Dixon, The Demon (de Montfort University Students' Union newspaper), circa 2006
- Sorry. I'd much rather be gay than sleep with you just to prove I wasn't.

- Furthermore, though the fact seems little known, the clitoris of one woman may be stimulated nearly as effectively by the vulva of another woman, as can the penis of a male with the vagina of the female. The female emotion resulting from stimulation of the clitoris by another woman (as apparent in the behavior of women prisoners) seems fully as extensive as the male emotion resulting from stimulation of the penis. In this type of physical relationship, both women most frequently experience simultaneous stimulation of the clitoris with appropriate emotional states following. Neither woman, of course, receives stimulation of the mouth of the vagina.
- Girls five or six years, or older, are quite likely to experience passive love for other girls of similar age, with or without mutual stimulation of the genital organs, as the case may be....At least two completed love affairs of this type between girls give to seven years old have been brought to my attention. In both cases the children were wholly normal so far as could be determined by medical and psychological examination.
- William Moulton Marston The Emotions of Normal People p.303 and p. 318 as quoted in Wonder Woman: Bondage and Feminism in the Marston/Peter comics, 1941-1948 pp. 146-147 by Noah Berlatsky.
- The phrase "female soul enclosed in a male body" will stand like an upraised pillar, and the teeth of time will not eat it away. Its consequences for moral law will belong to the highest problems of wisdom, when it is long forgotten what a struggle was required to free nature from the hands of her tormentors, and hardly anyone will think of pitying the people and cities that once elevated their persecutions into law.
