<quoted text>That's a pretty nice bike you got posted there. No gay man would be able to handle a machine like that, so I'm guessing you're a lesbian. How are those carolina work boots treating your back?
Keep guessing toots. I'll give you a hint though. My wife does like to ride pillion. We've been married for almost 15 years if that helps you figure things out.

That bike, BTW, is a 1978 Honda 750 I bought new. By today's standards it is overweight, underpowered, and has inferior suspension and braking. I still love it though, lots of happy memories and miles.

There are some competitive gay riders. Homosexuality doesn't limit coordination, stamina, or courage.

Lastly, I favor Caterpillar boots. They're comfortable and durable and relatively water resistant.

I thought I was just pointing out how idiotic it is to equate an ever only duplicated sterile half to the gender diversity of marriage.
Most people don't know I'm a lesbian trapped in a straight man until I tell them.
Kind of messes up your gay twirl, doesn't it.

Third response to my post that has no direct counter, just ad homoan attacks against me.
A clear sign of a failed position.

I exposed VV's claim as an idiotic gay twirl lie.
The only counter was not direct responses, they were ad homoan gay troll attacks.
I never claimed homosexuals were sterile, I accurately noted that ss couples are desolate and barren.
There is no such thing as ss 'marriages'. It is an oxymoron.
Numerous relationships 'commit to each other' without being called marriage.
Consider yourself schooled.
And a liar.
Smile.
You've schooled no one. You referring to anyone as a liar is quite hilarious. Your claims about yourself are unproven and a bit farfetched as I've pointed out recently and not so recently.

Homosexuals are no more barron that heterosexual couples that resort to artificial insemination, surrogates, etc.

I suppose the numerous legally married gay couples will be surprised to find out you've declared their legally recognised marriages don't exist.

Smirk!

If they rename it Harvey Milk, I would have to endure my crude New York relatives "Flying" out to visit me. "We'll be FLYING into Harvey Milk around COCKTAIL hour..."
If they rename it to Milk, they should have a special pedophile wing.

"Fisting" and "rimming" are filthy practices not equivalent to heterosexual marriage in any way. The CDC fact sheet for Sept. 2011 states men who have sex with men are 44 times more likely than other men to contract HIV. And, the children are NOT all right, since studies by the Witherspoon Institute show children raised by homosexuals fare worse socially, psychologically and physically than people raised in other family arrangements. The children of parents who at some point had a same-sex partner were more likely to be on welfare, have a history of depression, have less education and reported 3 times as often as children of intact biological families that they were forced to have sex, the study found.
Here is what an honest gay activist found: "To be fully formed, children need to be free to generously receive from and express affection to parents of both genders. Genderless marriages deny this fullness.
There are perhaps a hundred different things, small and large, that are negotiated between parents and kids every week. Moms and dads interact differently with their children. To give kids two moms or two dads is to withhold from them someone whom they desperately need and deserve in order to be whole and happy. It is to permanently etch “deprivation” on their hearts."

That's why you will note that in the opening line of my comment I specifically said, "Every single solitary straight..."
The point of my comment is that when a straight person comes out strongly against same-sex marriage, they tend to (at the same time) condemn homosexuality.
It's through their condemnation of homosexuality that they explicitly announce their own orientation and its superiority.
My post was in response to someone who claimed that homosexual people do not need to "come out of the closet". This person also insinuated that straight people do not come out of the closet--do not announce their orientation. And I don't agree...
VV

After reading that, I went back and forth in my mind...yes and no. Personally my view on homosexuality, it is what it is. That doesn't mean marriage has to be legally redefined to address it, when other options are available.

I still don't quite get the media circus that accompanies the "I'm gay" pronouncement from some celebrity or athlete. There are times when, after hearing the latest "coming out" on the boob tube, I think "enough already....so you're no going to slap a rainbow sticker on your car....we get it".

Why do you fight gay rights... why not just accept that others are different from you and move on with your life... I mean really doesn't that make the most sense
