I have given you thoughtful posts and you don't respond. I have outlined all that women's civil rights cover aside from abortion and you haven't made a peep. I have shared my personal opinions regarding abortion and all you can say is what I quoted from you. As if I never said/posted a word.
And you wonder why some posters call you a liar. Really?
Civil rights?! Did you say "civil rights"???

Not even NR would claim to have missed that end of the debate.

Hellfire, that's our entire argument. But...what?...what was that?...Gtown hasn't heard of it?

Did you see where he accused me of crossing sassy's civil liberties?

The guy must be a compulsive liar. Must be why -- when he lists sins -- lying is never on the list.

And Katie..

He ignored my question regarding frozen embryos.

I asked if he equated destroying a frozen embryo with "killing babies".

Yeah, I saw he was silent on that question of yours, STO. I don't equate frozen embryos with babies. Does anyone?

These guys take their spoon feeding seriously. According to them, we must like abortion because we've never said any different. Incredible!

I don't watch gibson; he's not much of an actor. Nor do I get my information from movies.

Gay sex occurs in nature; how can it not be natural?

I came out in 1978; I knew I was gay years earlier. I know precisely wht those times were like, which is hy I (and many of my generation) have worked to make sure others didn't have to go through the same thing.

Yes, there is safe sex; you have to learn how to apply it properly. Young kids aren't even getting basic sex ed, much less safe sex info. Why lie?

Sex is natural, but gay sex is not.
I geuss if you're going to be gay, then you live in a pretty good time, since up to the 70's it was looked at as a mental disorder.
I know, and have know several gay men and women. They come in all shapes and sizes from all walks of life. I don't see much difference in being gay with any other sexual sin, but most who are gay don't view being gay as a sin, some do.
There may be safer sex, but no such thing as safe sex, unless two people are married, and have only known each other.
Yes sex can be pleasurable, and exciting, but we have now gotten to a point where kids younger and younger are having "safe sex ",we are not getting better as a society by teaching safe sex, and we sure are not getting better by sending a message, to kids that they are no longer held accountable for their actions.
Anyone can look at our school system since the 70's and tell its headed south fast.

Ah yes, the old "obama is gay" tripe. Grow up.

If limited sexual experience works for you, fine. It doesn't work for everyone, and it doesn't have to.

So did you ever make a road trip to Chicago and blow the president in the mens clubs he and Rahm used to frequent back in the day of being a state senator? He loved the older white men getting on their knees to service him. I am fifty one and have had two partners my entire life. The girl I thought I was going to marry, and the one I actually did. Twenty six years of monogamy and I still get butterflies when we are together.

I don't see any of them advocating to illegalize tobacco. When you apply the same logic they use regarding abortion, they are, again, silent.

Oh, you don't want to outlaw smoking, huh? Well, I guess that means even tho YOU wouldn't smoke and don't approve of smoking, or have no opinion on the matter, since you don't want it banned you also drive smokers down to the local smoke shop, buy their cigarettes, open the pack, pull one out, stick it in their mouth, and light it up for 'em! Yeah, your a ProSmoker cuz you think folks should have the right to choose to smoke or not!

I taught safe sex; there was no physical contact, nor did I use it to meet guys. I've never needed pretense to get a guy. Gays don't have lifrstyles; they have lives. So, no, you know NOTHING about us.

Calling you an arrogant bitch is a personal judgment based on your own post; "lesbo" is just a derogatory term for an entire group.

I don't suck up to anyone; the law and scince are on our side. You're nothing.

Adopting a child is a rigorous process. You're just spouting off about yet something else you know nothing about.

YOU brought up this imaginary "expert", liar.
Guppy wrote:
<quoted text>
You taught safe sex to meet other guys. It had nothing to so with safe, it was all about sex. Isn't that what your lifestyle is all about - sex? Do you ever get to know the guys who sleep with? Ever get their names at least?
It's not ok to call lesbians, lesbo's, but it's ok to call a straight woman an arrogant bitch? Prejudice d much. Loss of credibility. Take your blinders of. There is a big world out there and most people are straight. Thank god. So, you better start sucking up to us, or else your life will be miserable. If it isn't already.
Adoption process? No, but I have heard it's not that bad. Didn't you qualify? Just because you try to adopt, doesn't mean you are adoption material. The main concern for people who work for adoption agencies is to find a home for these poor kids. Not all homes are perfect, and they keep their fingers crossed that it will work out. You have a lot to learn. You must be young and foolish. Well, that's how you sound.
You don't care about kids, straight people etc. You only care about yourself and the gays. Who is the bigot? Yes, you.
Are you bringing up my 'expert' again? Rolling eyes.
Maybe you should try foster care. You get $17.00 a day. That should cover the three bowls of oatmeal you would serve the poor kid.
I know nothing about gays? Is that even possible?

I take it you've never read anything for comprehension?

I came out in 1978; mom died last year. She was far stronger and smarter than you could ever be. Actually, my ex was her favorite in-law.

You only hang out with gays? I guess you have more in common with them. Ha.
Anyone I've slept with? Do you think straight people sleep with a lot of people? No.
You weren't interested in teens whilst a teen? I guess you went for the up to 12 year old age group. That is sad. People who prey on little kids have to be severely punished.
I didn't watch the you tube thing. What was that about?
Did you kill your mother by telling her you were gay? Some parents can't handle it. I guess the disappointment is overwhelming.

<quoted text> Women have always made their own reproductive decisions. Abortion was illegal for a relatively short time. Now, we can have an abortion as the medical procedure that it is, and have that procedure protected as a private medical matter. No one's personal morals are being impinged upon, since no one is being forced to stay pregnant or to abort a pregnancy.
The problem with this is that pro"choicers" are forcing others to be involved, by requiring employers to provide coverage for them, by expecting all OB/GYN's to perform them, by allowing minors access to them, and by giving federal money to the "clinics" that provide them.
So other than who should pay, you're pro-choice?

Give the phony "charm" a rest, G; it isn't working. By the way, I don't think you're "kidding" at all. You made your archaic beliefs about women very clear when you FIRST arrived here, and you only began backpedaling when you realized they made you look bad.
I think you still believe all that 19th-century "woman's place" nonsense, you're just not going to promote it as much as you used to.
I'm glad you seen the charm. Lol

I have not changed my postition on the home. "The BEST, MOST IDEAL home " is when the women stay at home raising kids, and the man goes out to work "outside the home ",notice both people are working.

Your biggest deal is having some man making bad choices for the family, and they are out there no doubt, but every shio MUST have a captain. Most families "ships " don't have a clue about God, and so no wonder they are ran aground all up and down the river. You either want the woman to be the captain or no one being the capt.

Women say they want equal rights, but they really want special rights.
my stance haven't change, but I choose to talk about God more, becouse when a family has God above their name, then He will guide them into all truth.

It seems you have ONLY met religion, and for cutting the ties that bind you? I can't blame you, but if you notice I don't promote religion, I promote God.

Sorry, but a marriage does not "need" a captain. Nor does one "need" your version of Deity, and there are many that are great without any version of same.

"Women say they want equal rights, but they really want special rights."

In what way? Men working outside the home can do whatever work they want. They can be professionals like doctors or accountants, or tradesmen..anything. The woman in the home gets few choices, if any. Cleaning and cooking. Women who want more than that out of life are looking for "special rights"? It might be the other way around.

I know my kids are better off for having been taught comprehensive sex ed. They were taught in school and at home. They're all adults now, some of them married, and have not had one std or unplanned pregnancy among them.

As for abortion, nonsense. The abortion rates have dropped every year since 1990. That's 23 years. The rates were much higher when I was a teen, and sex ed equaled "don't do it".

It's not for YOU or any other homophobic religionist to decide for anyone else what is "natural" or not. Anti-contraception imbeciles believe sex is ONLY for the purpose of procreation. They would probably say "sex is natural, but contraception is not."
As for the man-made invention of "sin," I have only ONE way to describe it: S.I.N.= Self-Inflicted NONSENSE. Your constant ranting about "sin" is another reason why I kicked the toxic baggage of gods, religions and churches to the curb over 20 years ago. It's wonderful how much freedom I have when I'm NOT shackled with such ridiculous beliefs like "birth control is a sin."
I thought you would stand for my right to speak my mind, but I forget liberals only want free speech when folks are speaking what they like to hear.

You say you left all that religious garbage behind?
Let me ask you -how would you like it, if Gods view on sex was being taught to your kids?

I didn't think so.
Well oceanic, it may shock you, but I don't want my daughter being taught by God hating liberals to explore herself with any and all kinds of sex, which is clearly putting our country in a bad position.

The way its going, we will not have to fear other countries, we will kill ourselves.
If All women lived acvording to Your way, there would be no one left in a few years, but the last generation would sure enjoy themselves. Lol
