Excellent article. It's becoming more and more expensive for bigots to indulge their urge to discriminate, and that is definitely a good thing.

Best of luck to "The Barbaras" on their lawsuit!

Well, Leroy1. Ten years, and the couple never caved. Just think. In four more years, you can proudly post that you have been harassing gays on Topix for ten years. Just think how many names/locations you have gone through!! Some accomplishment. Set those goals high!! It's no wonder you are single/alone.

As long as he/she/it is by himself/herself/itself, R1 will never be single or alone. Why else do you think he/she/it developed that multitude of personalities?

Qu33rs can't stand the fact that virtually everybody snickers at them when they walk by.
It just kills them (that and Aids) no matter how many laws are passed, or how many fake gay marriages are performed most will never accept thier perverted lifestyle choice.

If the story is true it's too bad. We had a gay waitress that lied about a note saying why she got no tip, we have MassEquality that wanted a non-existent group of gay vets to march in the St. Patrick's Day parade.
Lots of lies.

Obvously, the country is changing and now has majority support for gay marriage and eqaual rights. You'd think people against gay's would catch the hint and either change or move somewhere else, where their bigotry and hateful views would be accepted.

So Leroy, when you moving? Uganda suits your views.

Demonizing all gay people is logical in your homophobic mind.

Someday the pendulum will swing again, when the Millennials become more mature and garner more wisdom. They will realize that the needs of children is much more important than the preferences of adults.
