I never have understood why people would think that a gay person is hurling an insult at someone by suggesting that someone else is gay.
If I am gay, how is it insulting to say that someone else might also be gay?
Thanks. That's my point. It would be stupid of you to suggest his son is gay as an insult. Which is what you did. Woops! Now I called you stupid too.

Howdy there you redneck, knuckle dragging, crack licking, crotch sniffing. baby butchering perverts!
Personally I think all of you suck in Kalifonia! We need to dig a big hole in Timbuktu and throw your pathetic asses in it. Then restock Kalifonia with normal humans. You know, the kind that aren't Cod Gobblers.

I tried, they donít even come close to comprehending that being gay or being called gay, is not in any way an insult.

They live and breathe hate and spite all day long, and so take offence at things that are not offensive in any way at all.

Hey look folks Frankie has come out of the closet again, he thinks being called gay is an insult

Im glad he wonít be hiding behind his lie of supporting same sex marriage anymore, unless he is even dumber than we think he is. The bar is already pretty low for Frankie, I wouldnít put it past him to try and keep the pretense up anyway, when we all know better. Letís see if he is as stupid as I think he is and argues to keep it up.

So... You show your cards again. You think it's hateful for me to assume that your son might be gay?
Only someone who hates gay people would say something like that.
Obviously I didn't mean it as hateful. I'm a gay man. I don't see a problem if he's gay. To me he would just be another gay man among the millions of other gay men in the world.
But you think of it as hateful.
Would you want him eliminated if he were gay? Would you try to "cure" him? Would you blame his mother for producing a gay son? Maybe you would blame yourself. Maybe you would insist that both you and your wife are to blame--what with your "epigenetic theory" and all.
If he is gay, he has my sympathy.
My folks didn't exactly cotton to the idea of having a gay son, but to have you as a father and be gay--that's not a fate I'd wish on anyone.
By the way your marriage is still only a "mutually sterile, pointlessly opposite gendered half of marriage".
You thought if you said his son is gay he wouldn't like it because you assume he is a homophobe. That is an insult in itself.

Admit it and end this pack of lies, you got Big D lying for you and he needs rehab for habitually lying, not encouragement!

Weealy....calling you a homo is not an insult? Let me tell you what an insult to humanity is....A man wearing women's stockings looking for a hole plug. Or wearing lipstick trying to
milk a dick. NOW THATS AN INSULT

Well I'm sorry I made you man-ho's cry. I guess being a crack maggot is a hard life. Just loosen your bras and play with your balls. Now don't be trying to lick them on your couch you might fall off.

I went to Daytona Beach Florida two years ago. After going out on the beach for a while I detected something that smelled like shit. When I look down the beach I saw two Kalifonia men making love.

I was on I-5 in Kalifonia last month and stopped at a rest area. When I went into the restroom it felt like I had got detailed like a car. One started licking my crack and five others started waxing my hot rod.

Yeah, we all know that's what your sarcastic words communicated.
Just another correction, when you include both genders it's not a 'half'.
Of course it's "half". Unless you two are spitting out babies, according to your own definition of marriage, you are in a "half-marriage".

Your duty to one another ended when your kids became of age to care for themselves. That is if I'm to believe your insistence that marriage at its essence is a "cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior".

You claim you're not gay. Fine... You're just a "heterosexual" male who seems to know more about gay male sex than most gay men.

You claim to not hate gay people, but you describe my comment as "hateful" when I suggest that your son is gay.

And when the validity of your own marriage is questioned using your own definitions, you claim that your definitions do not apply. You now claim that marriage involves more than your previous definitions. You have expanded your definition of marriage to accommodate your own personal relationship.

Isn't that convenient...

I said that I got a vibe that his son is gay. How on earth is it an insult for me, a gay man, to suggest another man is gay?

That wasn't an insult, it was an observation.

Kimmy knows when I've insulted him.

I just thought he should know that his son's pictures makes my "gaydar" go "PING"!

I wonder how Kimmy would treat his son if he knew he was gay? Would he say the same things to his son that he says to the gay people here?

Assume he's a homophobe?!? Are you kidding?!? Is there any doubt?!?

I questioned his son's orientation based on my own observations. I'm not saying I'm right. But gay men tend to know other gay men. We're intuitive that way.
