Ss couples will only ever be a mutually sterile, pointlessly duplicate gendered half of marriage.
You are not dealing with it honey, you are still in deep denial!
Smile.
Incorrect. You are in denial about the realities of the world we currently live in. Sorry you're struggling with that so much. Hope you get better soon.

Not to worry, these sick bastards are on barrowed time too. HIV/AIDS is a real killer.
Unfortunately natural selection and evolution take a long time, the problem is, they can't even keep it between their gay selves.

Who does the general public think of right away when they hear HIV/AIDS?
I think of Africa, which has the highest rate of HIV infection in the world. It is rampant among heterosexual adults and also children due to infection in the mothers, transmitted at birth to the child.

Right.
The "gay cult".
As it is I don't think the "gay cult" or the "homosexual hooligans" or even the "muff diving mafia" cares if you yourself accept 'them' or not.
Gays only need to follow the law of the land friend and that is to behave like the free citizens of this country in which they reside.
You lose.
If you really didn't care what we think, you wouldn't be trying to force us to accept your ways. You'll carry that weight forever sweet cakes.

No squatting, kneeling is more accurate.

Not according to your answer. I stated a person takes an oath to uphold the constitution not personally interpret it. I never said the constitution wasn't valid.
They don't get it, to them an oath is just a bunch of jumbled words ready to be twisted around to fit their personal needs. Just like morals, they think they can redefine and skew it's meaning.

So you blame heterosexual children that are infected at birth as transmitters of the disease. You're an idiot.

<quoted text>The answer is, how does one become born gay? You have no answer. Psychiatrist since Freud have answered your question. The primary method of making a child gay is same sex child abuse. Yup, gays follow children and feed to Jello and yes then lead them to a bed. You moron, people are made gay all he time, just like a child is made into a drug addict and alcoholic. stupid.
Give your idiotic butt a rest and learn about AIDS and condoms, will ya??????????
I personally worked in Hollywood (second largest gay congregation south of the gay bay) for almost 8 years and talked to many street kids that turned to gay sex to make money and then embraced the gay lifestyle. If you think they were 'forced' into gay sex and kept into that lifestyle by force you're an idiot. They did it for pleasure, whether for pleasure of money, companionship, whatever, it was a DECISION they made themselves. They weren't BORN gay, they made a decision to be gay.

I personally lived in West Hollywood and never once met anyone who DECIDED to "become gay". The common scenario was people who were struggling with being accepted for who they are (gay) in their hometown in other parts of the country moved there to be around people did accepted them for who they are. They didn't move there to become gay.

That was a very incendiary post you made. I will assume it was due to a reading comprehension issue on your part.

My response was:

There was no blame or judgment of any kind on my part. I was pointing out the reality that, sadly, HIV and AIDS is rampant in Africa and that was the first thing that came to mind when Gustavo posted his question.

Do not add implications that are not there. That was completely uncalled for.

Obviously then you don't know what you are talking about and are trying to spin the statement I made. No , the 'kids' I was talking about did not go there "to become gay" (dumb scenario), they were mainly runaways there because south of gay bay, hollywood is a good place for runaways. They got into gay sex because it was more profitable than straight sex (that right there says a lot) and then became used to, or accostomed to, or whatever your spin is on it, but got into that gay lifestlye "by their own choice". So people CAN choose to become gay. O.K. your turn to spin again.

This is an open post, I can respond to any post I read, if you don't care for my response too bad.
