Trannies are being harrased in schools you idiot and it's because you adults are pushing them out into a society that isn't ready to accept your lifestyle. Like I said as long as I've been here I don't care if you are queer, just don't force your lifestly on society and you are. So you get over yourself you moron
Why not push them out in society? You force everyone to accept YOUR bigoted consumerist life style. The only reason YOUR society isn't ready to accept it, is because your not dead yet butt flower.

Alright...please spell out these "extra rights" gays supposedly have.
Hate crime laws in the United States protect against hate crimes (also known as bias crimes) motivated by enmity or animus against a protected class. Although state laws vary, current statutes permit federal prosecution of hate crimes committed on the basis of a person's protected characteristics of race, religion, ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, and disability.

---Sounds like a reality in our world. Apparently there are transgendered people who feel extremely uncomfortable using a gender specific bathroom and instead will hold their urges to use one for hours.
I too never got the transgendered thing but like you I too was never burdened with it. Just let it be, they're allowed their lives as well Chief.
I just corrected you. Chief! No need for the rant about nothing...again.

'OK' is a commonly used term. Of course your game playing ass already knew that but you're in here scrambling for brownie points amongst the bottom feeder trolls and felt it necessary to throw the above comment out.
It's 'OK'...everyone figured it out already.

I only see once reference to it.
I found twenty or thirty references to it by searching the first sentence half.

Perhaps your abject stupidity, use of all caps, too many exclamation points, and general all around adolescent AOL user aura gets in the way of your basic skills at meandering through life?

When someone consistently talks sh/t off the top of their head, where is their head?
1. Look this up; Popular Classic Morality Books
2. We not only accept suppression, we demand it. We do not tolerate the suppression of free speech, even though it may have profound impact on idiots.
Moreover, the recent history of government intervention that claimed only good impact, was in marriage and family.
~No fault divorce; at the horrific expense of children's welfare.
~Abortion; at the expense of 40 million lives and counting.
You make the idiotic claim that a fundamental change of marriage once again forced by government will have NO negative impact.
3. By your definition, the term marriage would be meaningless. There are core details that distinguish marriage. Ss couples fail at every single one of them.
Your assertion that I don't annoy you and your fellow liars is laughable.
4. This is funny; In point three you deny I annoy others, and in point four you give me the power to delete the so called love of strangers!
Thanks for the suggestion about my poem, I'm negotiating with Hallmark right now!
5. Uh, you forgot the mass medical community on my side who is futility spending public money to educate brain analized gays about marginally safe sex...
6. Why DID you feel it necessary to come to Mikey's defense?
Finally, a woman who has borne children is not considered barren. Not to mention the distinction between a medical condition and age, vs the absolute destitution and barrenness of ss couples 100% of the time. You only expose your desperate logical destitution with such silly stupid rants.
Never got a call from Hallmark, have you?
1.) Oh, you must be talking about the classic morality books, "Aesop's Fables" and "Grimm's Fairy Tales".

2.) We don't suppress legal behavior between consenting adults that have no impact on the lives of others.

3.) Same-sex marriage doesn't have to meet your criteria for it to be considered legal.

4.) Girl, you don't have the power to do anything. Your sense of grandiosity never fails to amaze me. It's pathological.

5.) The "mass medical community" accepts the fact that adults are free to make decisions with their bodies. It's kind of like how they accept the fact that HPV is rampant in the heterosexual community; as is abortion. They also accept the risks people take when they drive, work in certain jobs, live in certain neighborhoods, etc. They realize that there is risk with any behavior and encourage people to mitigate the risks that might be involved in any behavior. They have learned that competent adults are capable of making decisions that impact their own lives.

6.) I didn't come to Mikey's defense. I had no idea what you were talking about.

Finally, "barren" is synonymous with "infertile", which is defined as "of a person, animal, or plant unable to reproduce." I think that describes Mrs. Kimare well, unless she is some kind of medical miracle at her age.

<quoted text>So what's your point? Anyone who knows about gay history over the last 40 years or so knows about the "hankie code" and it's place in 1970's gay culture.
Obviously the AOL astroturfer (Mikey/Dan/Dangerous Hands from Illinois) doesn't know.

You're dissing your fellow Pooper Troopers. Get on the same page, or your next check is gonna be smaller.

Hey now....don't start with the Nazi correlation....it won't take but 5 minutes from some bigoted moron to come back with "Godwin's Law" as if it means anything.
And after they recite Godwin's Law to use they'll no doubt give 'Sieg Heils' to each other but that's beside the point...
LOL!!!
Good point. The Nazi far right seig heils all day long yet cant see there own hate and bigotry for the evil it is.
