I act as though we are all part of humanity and should respect each other even if we disagree. We are all different and will never agree on all topics. That is part of being human. Spending a life proving others wrong is a waste.
To quote again from your own blog:
Narcissism -“Selfishness is not living as one wishes to live, it is asking others to live as one wishes to live.”
Are you asking others to live as YOU wish to live?
Calling me silly names like Bowser or Pollyanna or "stupid" accomplishes nothing, except to demonstrate things about yourself.

Yes, gay can mean anything that he wants it to. One minute, it's a term of nobility, the next, it's an insult. Depends on context. But when you or I call someone "gay", it makes us haters. Which is pretty gay ...
Actually, gay means that someone is only attracted to the same gender. It has nothing to do with one's nobility, or lack of it.

However, when the word is used as an insult, it demeans the user, whoever that is, and not the one the insult is aimed at.

However, studies have shown that often the most obsessively anti-gay people are those who are attracted to the same gender, and use this "hate" as a means to prove to others (and themselves) that they are not. One of the ways to tell is that they demand constant attention from gay people, and are obsessive in obtaining it.

You see, most heterosexuals aren't that worried about what someone else is doing, and they don't obsess about gay people have sex the way an insecure homophobe does. Really, why in the world would they?

To call such a person gay is not intended as an insult, but simple truth.

No. Why would it be?

The implication that you are an insecure closet case who projects their hatred of themselves toward people they will never meet, would be.

It all depends on context.

Simple truth. Can you explain the outright obsession with gay males having sex that so many people on these threads display?

I can't. But then, I'm not obsessed with gay males having sex.

"It is not my battle alone to fight, but a conflict engaged in by millions of like minded Americans concerned for the Republic's future generations, to whom we are obligated to pass on to them, the very social instution, cruicial to societal stability, the monogamous union of husband and wife. A union too important to be subject to the revisionist whims of a few who put forth the notion that the male female union is not unique and thus not worthy of societal recognition and privilege alone. No sir, untold future generations of Americans will know that not all of their ancestors went meekly into the night, when confronted by those that would tear down the very notion of conjugality, fidelity, procreativity, elements at the core of the marital union. That there were those who opposed such a detrimental consequential act, faithful citizens, who despite being subjected to threats of violence, and verball taunts, soldiered on. Labeled as "bigots", "homophobes", "fundies", and told their religious beliefs were fairy tales. They were even subjected to threats of violence, by individuals who describe themselves as "tolerant", all because they dare question the Orwellian orthodoxy that men and women are interchangeable, a notion put forth by those who seek nothing less than the complete rejection of the understanding of marriage as a union of both sexes, a concept that has stood since since the birth of the Republic".

Works the other way too. Like I suspect you are a closeted straight. A heterophobe. Trying to prove to others you're not straight.

Let's see those "studies", buttmunch. And we all know, one example being global warming, that "scientists" are bought and sold every day. Not to mention that the APA and AMA have been highly infiltrated by Der Sphincter cultists.

I agree.

I don't think they want to get next to a warm female, though, as much as they want to get in the streets and pillage and loot and burn, because "hate" is all they seem to talk about.

I lived in Cleveland for many many years and you wouldn't believe how many of them are racists. I have to laugh when the uppity Yankee schoolgirls talk about the South.

THE PEOPLE OF THIS WORLD must have human rights freedom and free choices of fundamental liberty righteous rights to live or move to reside in places having these anywhere if they do not have, at where they are.

People can choose not to live by their old grand-parents' places, or barns, or farms or inner cities if finding too corrupted or too MANY BUSYBODIES(nosy snoopy people or big brothers snooping) troubling them.

Workers and security guards at bar places would harass and even beat non-smoker customers because they think non-smokers would spend less on alcoholic drinks. Yet other workers would even go along with bad people for being silent and corrupted, and besides, workers don't even have such rights to say something, or else would be told by leaking secrecy and be disciplined
If nothing can do and can change the corrupted establishment, people are having such bad and ugly environment, then they can move to other lands with other people having societies of no corruption but great value and liberty rights and privacy freedom, with no snooping on public at all.

Countries around the world must keep on building societies and be supported, so that humans have choices for their human rights freedom with no snooping agenda, and also have free choices of fundamental liberty righteous rights to live or move to reside, on the planet.

Many countries would not do as US does on snooping programs, while people can file charges if such snooping occurs too extremely for unjustified reasons to them. Then the human rights free choices societies will be rewarded with building excellent rules and systems for all the dignified people's needs, and many needy people who are thirsty for all these can move to, and they will be dynamic, as all these are constructive and valuable.

As countries on the planet are facing the radicalism of US doing the coalition of willing again (as if like the standpoint of Iraq war), some of those countries as Austria, France, Italy and Spain are the willing, and forge by joining US to pursue on the Snowden case like the Iraq war. Spain did wrong to conduct the detour of airplane going to Bolivia because being one of the willing. First, there were no facts of truth of full evidences of Snowden on board airplane and that was ugliness of Spain. Then in doing the detour of airplane was another wrongdoing by messing up a lot to make bad troubles. Countries can choose not to be with the willing or joining so that the world is not being made so bad, corrupted without rules.

US has damaged relationship with many countries by chasing Snowden, by creating destructive way of International disorder. Whether US has broken International regulations, which can be sued or penalized, as those people so concerned are saying of the wrongs and wrongdoing of such, which are making the world in chaos. US way of doing is not the new world's needs and wants. US ought not make the world to be bad in volatility in addition to further suffer more harms of relation and economy, by doing the too extreme on Snowden story and violate International rules and systems. It ought to let its people have free choices, and not suppress human rights freedom of choices of dissidents (e.g., Snowden), ADVERSARIES, AND non-believers and let them move to places where they belong and want, just as other countries do to their dissidents by taking lots from their homeland to US.

The world must be a free world with freedom liberty choices for all, so that human rights freedom and free choices of fundamental liberty righteous privacy rights exist in many places around the world, that all people can have basic free rights values to live everywhere and anywhere.
