Like your comments are on topic flippy.
The topic is marriage equality, which includes ALL marriages, even ones you don't approve of.

I notice you don't tell Rose_NoHo the topic is not who should have been aborted, or dogs eating cat sh!t. She's not off topic but poly MARRIAGE is?

Hope that helps flash.

<quoted text>Teehee, I don't live in a trailer! I live in a duplex outside of town in the woods. Beautiful scenery. I have a nice creek that runs out back too. Excellent trout fishing. I don't get crap for signal but that's okay, it's better than living in town or even a city for that matter. Peace and quiet, I watch deer come up through my backyard I love it! There's nothing better than the country:) And in a few months me and my fiance are buying 20 acres of this beautifully wooded land and we are going to put a manufactured home on it. Not the kind you are thinking of either this one costs 80k. Its more like a house but it can be moved. Very convenient. Country people out here ain't at all how you percieve them to be. I'm a NEW york country girl. Not a louisiana or arkansas country girl. They DO NOT HAVE TEETH AND MOST ARE FAT! There is a difference believe it or not. I have all my teeth and their perfect:)maybe I'll post my picture so you all can look at it and weap!
Is that house coming in big sections hauled on flatbeds, being lifted into place by crane, and then nailed or lag bolted together? Or did it come in on wheels attached to the dwelling under the middle and being towed with a hitch that was also attached to the underpinnings?

If it is telecast, broadcast, or on the radio, then it is wrong, to me, to use these media to serve oneself. Church is a personal matter, and it is subject to small congregations. I also abhor churches panhandling. Nope, no "ick' factor. I answered you about hating gay women as much as the men, I told you you that I hated none. But I hold men and women equal, so my irritation at "coming out" is equal to both genders. I think that you have gotten the issue a bit muddled, because this question: "Why does it bother you so much to hear about gay people who believe that they have been wronged by the social, religious, and political system?" seems to infer that there is no difference between "coming out" and having a political agenda. Do you believe that they are one and the same?
Just as any other minority group, there is a political aspect to our community.

In our state, Tennessee, we have a senator, Stacey Campfield, who unabashedly believes that homosexuals are people who have a mental disorder. He believes it should be illegal for the word "gay" to even be mentioned in schools. He believes that gay kids should be outed to their parents by school counselors. In fact, his "Don't Say Gay" bill would have required a counselor to contact a kid/teen's parents if that kid/teen came to the counselor to discuss feelings of same-gender attraction.

Also, in our state, we have attempted to have "sexual orientation" added to the list of those kids who are most at risk of being bullied at school. It dies every time it comes before our legislators.

In the state of Alabama, there is a law still on the books (even though folks have been unsuccessfully trying to get it removed) that mandates sex-education teachers inform students that homosexual activity is illegal and not supported by most people.

I don't have room on this page to list all of the state laws and policies that do not provide protections and rights to LGBT people.

In my state it is still absolutely legal for my boss to come to my desk on Monday and say, "____ we saw on your facebook page that you are homosexual. We believe that this lifestyle in not congruent with the mission of this agency, so you're fired." And there's nothing I can do about it. There are not federal laws; no state laws.

And we're not the only minority who has faced this kind of discrimination. The Irish immigrants, the Italian immigrants, the Jewish Immigrants; all experienced severe discrimination in housing and work in the early part of the 20th century.

As a result, you will see the Irish parading in larger cities during St. Patrick's Day. You'll see the Italians parading on Columbus day. You'll see National Puerto Rican Day parades in various towns.

Many immigrants tried to hide their heritage when they came to this country in the early part of the 20th century by changing their names. In essence, they became closeted.

These groups banded together and became political powerhouses. They made changes to laws. They became involved in politics. They openly ran using their rightful names.

My ex, who was a third generation Russian Jew was given a Christian name to help make his life better.

Gays come out of the closet for similar reasons. We're not going to be shamed or held back by politicians and other groups who hold ignorant and intolerant beliefs.

Hope this helps to shed some light on the political issues that many gay people face in America today.

This is the kind of shit that makes it impossible to have a conversation.

In one post you claim to have no "ick factor" when it comes to gay men. But here, you say something entirely different; not to mention insulting.

I wonder why they don't tell Chongo that, when he is off-topic so much of the time? You don't suppose that they are biased, do you?

To be honest, was that a "Yes" or a "NO"?

End up a hunchback like my old man? If you think I'm crippled, you should have caught him at the end of the day. My old man spent fourteen hours a day down in that subway. He come home at night, two to three hours worth of change stained with shoe polish. Stupid bastard coughed his lungs out from breathin' in that wax all day. Even a faggot undertaker couldn't get his nails clean. They had to bury him with gloves on.

Yes, there's a marriage beam in the house. Like a double wide. The house gets halved and hauled on a flatbed. Their nice! The one we are looking at costs 80k. You wouldn't even think it's a manufactured home when you see it. The ones that have the hitch that you wheel out would be a trailer the kind you see in those trashy trailer parks! And even those ones aren't all bad I suppose. My fiance's dad has one that he built an addition off and it's huge! And beautiful. Their not all horrible like people perceive them to be. I would rather have a nice cozy little house on a nice peice of land with money in the bank, than some big immaculate mansion I can barly afford that I don't need!

There is no such thing.

At it's most basic essence, marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.

ss couples are an evolutionary mistake. A frustrated, fruitless friendship.

Sorry.

Oh so you "were" a crack whore. That's nice:) Now your in your 40s you have kids and your still stripping/escorting? Don't you think it's time to hang up the hooker boots and try to find a decent honorable job? And by the way I don't have a problem with gay employment, I don't hate gay people. I just don't agree with gay marriage. Maybe I'm old fashioned I don't know but I think marriage should be kept between a man and a woman!

I played around like that before I got engaged;) I just didn't take it as far as most girls do. I never munched carpet or had anybody do that to me! That's going a little far I think.
