<quoted text>How cute. A gay is wrapped in his own words. Gays are hated by their parents, yours hated you. Suicide is the result of this hate. Your dad was on the rag, and he made you into a monster. Mutation? Gosh, gays are mutations from cross bred pigs and apes. Doesn't work.
Gay people are only hated by very bad parents, the kind of people that should not be having children.

I know many gay people that are dearly loved by their parents

Someone would have to be very sick indeed to hate their children because they happen to be gay, those kinds of parents should have their children removed for their own benefit, gay or not

A former Navy SEAL who wrote "American Sniper," a book about his lethal career as a marksman in Iraq, was shot to death with another man at a gun range near Stephenville, Texas.

Chris Kyle, 38, and the other man were found dead
a gunman, identified as Eddie Ray Routh of Lancaster, Texas, was arrested.

Kyle, a Texas native was credited with 160 confirmed kills, including one in 2008 in which he said he fired from 2,100 yards away -- 1.2 miles.

Does the public know that Wal-Mart pays poverty wages? Does the public know that the Waltons are one the richest families in the world?
According to the Forbes 400 list, they're worth a combined $107.8 billion.
Full-time Wal-Mart employees earn $12.89 an hour, which places them in that poverty level.

<quoted text>So what makes you think that a few same sex marriage states, less than slave states, is an indication that you will get your desire to marry dogs and children. It will never happen. The more rational gays know this, so they commit suicide. You insane gays just stick around long enough to poop on the lawn and leave it messy before you leave.
Pop, dogs, and children. Yeah, these are the thoughts of a rational man.

You are as bad as Kimare. I ought to know.

That is a sad attempt to generalize, pal. There is no such thing as an "anti-gay homophobe", because the term originated in psychiatric circles, used to describe self-loathing in latent homosexuals. The only homophobes are the gays who experience self-hatred and self-denial. Are they bigots ? Who's to say, as they are judging themselves ? They have that right. And to attempt to claim that there no gays, anywhere, wishing to marry children is such an unadulterated lie, that it makes you look foolish. You should stick to facts, and not make up silly little lies that can be examined and found to be false. You run the risk of appearing to be nothing short of another "JodieDoDo", or a "Chongo"... At least, you haven't slipped into "LittleBrain" territory...
The best you can do is argue semantics? You know exactly what is meant by the terms in the current popular usage.

Do you have some sort of logical argument, other than pretending intellectual superiority?

Yes I do, glad you asked!

My rational argument is that if gender is irrelevant to marriage, number is too.

A Google search that takes all of 5 seconds proves that you don't know what you are talking about. But then, that's been obvious all along.

Weinberg's term became an important tool for gay and lesbian activists, advocates, and their allies. He describes the concept as a medical phobia:

a phobia about homosexuals.... It was a fear of homosexuals which seemed to be associated with a fear of contagion, a fear of reducing the things one fought for home and family. It was a religious fear and it had led to great brutality as fear always does.

That describes you as well! Remember when you written in your headline beneath your username? "A.K.A. Mikey Rizzo".
Yes. Of course I remember. I did that to make it clear my old profile had been disappeared like in some seedy banana republic due to my improper thoughts, but I was still the same old political criminal as when I went by Mike DiRucci.

The reason you don't get disappeared is that your posts aren't provocative, they're just dumb. In other words, you're a dope and present no threat to approved thought. And that's the same reason you get little response from me.

Hope that helps Fruitloops!

I suspect the real reason the word "homophobia" was coined is to inflame any-gay bigots. As such using it is no better than the people it was designed to be used against. It's inflammatory. And meant to be. So be it. Don't bullsh!t us otherwise.

What's wrong with just plain "bigot"? Or maybe make up a neat sounding one that better describes the reality.

This should be good.
