Once again, a 'professional' social worker is asserting that those who disagree with ss couples being called married is secretly a closet gay.
Meanwhile, while posting a study of college boys asserting their masculinity, you still avoid answering my questions about parenting studies.
Clearly a bigoted contradiction...
Smile.
I didn't assert it; the authors of the study did. I just happen to agree.

I've answered your parenting studies question. Shall I tell you again? Here it is. Don't forget it this time.

The best parents for children are ones who are responsible, supportive, loving, disciplined, resourceful, etc... Sometimes they're heterosexual, sometimes they're homosexual. Sometimes they're married, sometimes they're single, sometimes they're unmarried, sometimes they're divorced.

You cannot say with 100% certainty that all heterosexual couples make good parents. They just don't. And not all homosexual couples make good parents.

It is the SKILL of the parents, not the sexuality, that makes all the difference.

<quoted text>So lets recap, your did two tours in Nam, 4 years total, 1967-1971 then 43 years for the USGS, when was it that you went to school to get your Masters?
Something is wrong with the math, unless of course you had your masters before you where in the Navy as an enlisted man. You know Frankie, all the people that I knew in the service that had a Bachelor's degree, where officers. Yet you had a masters??? I gots to call BULL SHIT.
Oh snap! Typo. 34 years not 44. Sorry.

You got the Navy service right. Then 4 years for my bachelors,(used the GI bill, wasn't a slouch loser stoner like you) then started at USGS as a technician where they paid for me to get my masters! Gave me a pay check plus a government vehicle to go to school during my working hours! Cool beans right!? That's because I'm smart, not a dummy such as yourself.

I was a good geologist. Had my heart in it. My passion. Earned every penny. And my retirement checks. They got a good deal. I got a good deal. You know, like your garbageman job.

Relax fruitcake! Even if I was a liar such as yourself, how does that prove you are not a hypocrite? I say you are. Or else why so angry with me?

TLFN! I'll PM you!

Make this bum pay for his own board and keep.

That Orange County crook called Michael Carona continues to collect more than $218,000 a year in pension payments, even though he is serving time in prison.

They should have thrown the book at him, let him rot in prison and take all his pension money as a white collar crime fine.

Yes, I agree that the entire exercise is ridiculous. Including accusing heterosexual men of being gay. Especially that part. Using that bogus premise opens the door for ridiculous statements, no?

Politician's like Grover Norquist who is married and possibly has converted over to the other side already?

Police have to be in the community, they have to build up as many sources as they can, and they have to realize that the threat is coming from the Muslim community and increase surveillance there, the New York Republican congressman tells a news outlet.

Either one of them need to come on in and get a polygraph test and sign a allegiance letter too!

If not then a one way ticket back to the country of origin or one that will take you.

Did you read the study? Here is the abstract...
The authors investigated the role of homosexual arousal in exclusively heterosexual men who admitted negative affect toward homosexual individuals. Participants consisted of a group of homophobic men (n = 35) and a group of nonhomophobic men (n = 29); they were assigned to groups on the basis of their scores on the Index of Homophobia (W. W. Hudson & W. A. Ricketts, 1980). The men were exposed to sexually explicit erotic stimuli consisting of heterosexual, male homosexual, and lesbian videotapes, and changes in penile circumference were monitored. They also completed an Aggression Questionnaire (A. H. Buss & M. Perry, 1992). Both groups exhibited increases in penile circumference to the heterosexual and female homosexual videos. Only the homophobic men showed an increase in penile erection to male homosexual stimuli. The groups did not differ in aggression. Homophobia is apparently associated with homosexual arousal that the homophobic individual is either unaware of or denies.
----------
I'm sure a few of us would be more than happy to chip in and buy you a penile circumference device and some gay erotica so that you could run it up your flagpole and see if you salute.
It's my considered, and valuable, opinion that the study used bisexual men, that were steeped in self-denial, and labelled them "heterosexual". Thank you for your invite to deviation, but I have never been interested in becoming a cake-boi, and will not be available for a date. Thank you, no. You may rest assured that this will not change, and kindly confine your fantasizing to others. I believe that Jizzy or the Hoboken Homo will be available for indiscriminate hole jamming...

As many residents already know of Gary Clifford's workers compensation claim, while he worked as a motorcycle police officer. But to go on and become a Glendora City Council man, Mayor, Instructor at Citrus College and finally CFO for Athens Services?

Don't want to leave out his work for other businesses, vactations include water, snow skiing, piloting a small airplane, marching and or jumping up and down at political rallies.

So whats the difference between what John X. Vach and What Gary Clifford did and has gotten away with for several years?

Can you even guess why it's called that? And why it only comes with 3 sticks, and is unofficially called "The game you'll only play once"? I'd like it so much if you let your opponent go first...

Goodness! I didn't realize I was talking to someone who studies "rocks". That must take some REAL training. After all, they have brains and are complex, thinking objects.
That's funny, one could say the same about an MSW. Takes a real genius to pay for 6 years of college for the privilege of working a dead-end, underpaid, and overworked career.

Good for you.

Now tell us again how stupid we all are?

Oh, and you are a social worker, don't break any limbs patting yourself on the back, acting like you deal with the complexities of the brain. There is no Dr. in your name.
