Well I wish they would come to Mars with a tow truck and tow away all the space rovers and crashed junk those nasty Earthlings left up here. Oh good to know that gay people on Earth get such a nice reward when they get offended and when a normal Earthling gets his car bashed he gets nothing how lop sided is that crazy country you live in. Minority people have more say than ordinary folks who try to live a good life but are always having to step aside for the "other "people" weird I musr say

Obama should do that for re-election. Give all the gays a new Chevrolet.

I say this is touching. Still, if this act of kindness helps keep him alive and keeps him in college, I am all for it.

Hopefully he didn't vandalize it himself. Sadly, a lot of that has been happening lately. Such people think they are helping the cause when they are actually making it harder on other LGBTs.

One lesbian couple had things broken around their yard, their door kicked in, slurs on walls, etc. So the cops put up surveillance. Suspiciously, the camera they set up caught nothing the next time their house got trashed. So the cops turned the camera back on and without their knowledge, set up another one. The next time their residence was trashed, the cops examined the hidden camera. There, it showed the women disabling the other camera and then vandalizing their own property with anti-gay slurs. I believe they got charged with a number of false police reports and criminal mischief, and they ended up taking a plea deal.

There was a recent story where a lesbian carved anti-gay slurs into her own skin then reported that some random homophobe attacked her.

Yeh, that's nice of them, but then again it's a bit of advertiszing for them too; which is fair.

Huh, yeh, "spotted girl" there have been some bad stuff lately, but then there's this sorta thing been going on with anyone ("straights") since forever. It's a typical kid's thing & make out like someone else did it, shame is some adults don't grow outta that. Doesn't mean all GLBT should be suspect anymore than all people who are "victims" should automattically be suspect.

Yes, but "minorities" of any sort are more likely to play dirty tricks than members of the majority. It isn't because of any difference in morality, just that more privileged people lack a need to do so and feel they have more to lose. It is like I've said when it comes to both ends of the class spectrum. The richest and the poorest are so much alike, but for different reasons. The poorest have nothing to live for and don't care, and others expect nothing from them, so they can get by with more. The richest can buy their way out of most jams, and have so much power and influence, that they don't care. It is the middle class who faces the most pressures.

There are some out there, bigots I guess, who see gayness as an acquired character defect, and believe it is connected to other traits. They claim it is like an addiction, and if an addict can get someone who stands between them and their addiction in trouble, some just might. Others claim gayness itself is a cry for attention (perhaps for the same-sex parent but projected to others of the same sex).

I am not saying I believe nor endorse the above. People will think and say everything. Right now, the big thing stirring are the idiots (and I don't use the term often) who don't believe rape can cause pregnancy. I read the research, and the type of vaginal sex, whether rape or consensual has very little bearing on pregnancy as an outcome. In one study, rape victims were twice as likely to get pregnant, lending to the hypothesis that rapists may select based on subconscious fertility cues. However, that finding was not duplicate in other studies.

This is the stupidest post you've likely done in the last five minutes. If police could eliminate the crime that happens in head, the world would be a much nicer place.
