I don't support gay marriage and people don't bother me at all. The gay movement is another story. Ask the Parkers and the Whirthens in Lexington. Their elementary school kids were force fed gay literature. That's just wrong. Gays use bullying as an excuse to get their crap into these schools when there is no bullying going on. Alameda County in CA tried the same thing. An investigation took place and there were no incidents of gay bullying, not one. They just want to force families who want no part of their nonsense to be taught about it. The younger the kids are, the better they like it.
Gay literature..you mean stuff written by scary gays? Like Walt Whitman, Virginia Woolf, Marcel Proust, Truman Capote, Gertrude Stein, Plato, WH Auden, EM Forster, DH Lawrence, Emily Dickinson, TS Elliot, Somerset Maugham, Herman Melville, Edward Albee, Thomas Mann, Virgil, Thorten Wilder, Balzac, John Cheever, you mean that gay literature?

You're the one who declared how disgusting a gay parade is, though never have attending one makes your critique iffy at best.

They are actually kind of boring. A lot of it is just plain looking people in nothing special outfits, usually t-shirts and shorts. There will be some drag but who cares?

I am not sure why you guys think it is rolling live porn, but it is not, never was.

I will agree that the chief of police was off the mark demanding everyone show up, but would you complain if he demanded everyone attend a Martin Luther King parade and some racist cops were upset at attending?

I'm sure you misunderstood. If I said 'bullying of gays' I would have been in the micro-minority. Bullying of gays is almost always referred to as gay bullying. Write that 100 times so you'll remember.
I refuse to bow to those who don't know the language well enough to use words to say what they mean.

I did. My parents never used baby talk with me so I actually developed a vocabulary, much as they were reading "A Tale of Two Cities" when they were in Grammar School.

Oh right. They didn't call it that in your day. Your parents failed you, so the school was still trying to cram elementary things into your abysmally lazy noggin.

I imagine that you've repeated their error and have wasted the most absorptive years of your children's lives with the mental nutritional equivalent of cotton candy. I'd wager that they can recite all the names of the Teletubbies but not those of even even five U.S. Presidents; and commercial jingles by the score but not the Periodic Table of Elements.

Really? What was the name of the elementary school you attended?
Your parents produced a child with a birth defect.
It doesn't bother me that you're gay but I bet it bothered them.

I didn't. I attended a Grammar School.

Yes it did, but they were born in the 1800s.

One makes allowances.

I assume it's okay with you that elementary-age children are inundated with Bible stories, right? They're all so cheery! Like the one that ended up in Ham's curse.(You know, raping his father Noah?) Like the one about King David raping his sister. And his neighbor. And ordering her husband's death? Like the story of Bathsheba, the first-documented surrogate mother?

Oh, and don't even get me started on all the lovely poems in the Book of Psalms!

Normal people would much prefer their children read about Heather's two mommies.

Not elementary school, but my master's thesis was DH Lawrence and his works. Did you know he lived many years in the southwestern USA?

We read Walt Whitman in grade school. Truman Capote did write a charming Christmas book which was made into a lovely TV movie about 30 years ago. I'm sure a lot of kids saw that.

Oh, ever hear of a little book called THE BIBLE? King James Bible....HE was gay and wrote the book that a huge load of people rely on day and night. I bet a LOT of young kids are familiar with THAT gay man's work!

1. Religion is not taught in public schools, period.
2. Not even if is was labeled a comedy.

oh, your poor poor long suffering wife.

Wondering and his wife are in one of his pointless arguments:

"I SAID we got that lamp in 1998!"

"But, Wondering, I thought we got it in 1999 for our Y2K party"

"Wife, I said 1998."

"OK, OK, if you say so."

"FINALLY, finally you admit it!"

"Whatever, dear."

"So you ADMIT it was 1998!"

"Yes."

"you admit you were incorrect!"

"Yes!"

"It WAS 1998, and I can probably find a receipt."

"OK, OK, I ADMIT IT, we got it in 1998."

"I want to make sure you know I was correct."

"OK, Wondering, I have to make dinner."

"As you walk by that lamp, make sure you tell me it was 1998!"

Once again, Mrs. Wondering's scream of frustration rings out from the kitchen. Wondering smiles, his work done once again.

Funny! I've been having those exact same thoughts. Pity the poor flies in their kitchen. They must quibble like Bantam hens.

Wondering is entirely predictable: Say something stupid. Then when called on it, quibble about the name of a restaurant or a ride in the Magic Kingdom.
