Sadly , there's still an alarming number of mentally ill people walking the streets ; Homophobia is just one of many such manifestations of derangement ; any form of hate in the plural is .

I don't know about "homophobia" since nobody is or ever was afraid of homosexuals. I do know that most people are sick and tired of queers and hate them now more than ever.

You really should look up the definition of "homophobia" in a dictionary (assuming you own one) before you comment. Your comment makes you look ignorant and uninformed (which you obviously are).

What homosexuals seem to be utterly failing to see is that thinking people have come to regard the government as a great big, ever more powerful and abusive enemy of the people. Homosexuals are a just another tool in the hands of that enemy to strip people of their God-given and Constitutionally protected rights. I don't know how long it will take, but when this wasteful, corrupt government collapses as wasteful, corrupt governments have always done, then its tools will go with it. This time, because of the unprecedented ways that the population gets information, people will be able to watch it in real time and gain new understanding about why gays have been "in the closet" throughout history.

Can you tell me what rights you have lost? Just interested.

The right to say I don't want to bake a cake/photograph/provide flowers/provide a wedding venue/provide a bed and breakfast room etc. for a gay couple for starters.

You haven't lost the right to say that; you just said it. You also have the right to remain silent, which you should exercise more often.

Not really. The definition in the Merriam Webster dictionary is:
"irrational fear of, aversion to, or discrimination against homosexuality or homosexuals"

The only thing 'irrational' is that you think there is some kind of fear of gays. I suggest you spend more time with the dictionary before you make yourself look stupid, again.

Yes, really. Learn how to read. Ralph told the other idiot to look up "homophobia" because its meaning is not limited to fear, and you just proved him right by providing a dictionary definition. Or do you not know the meanings of the words "aversion" and "discrimination"?

I suggest you spend less time trolling gay forums and more time in remedial English before you make yourself look stupid, again.

You don't have to bake a cake for anyone, sweetie. If your in business to do so, however, your BUSINESS is mandated to follow all pertinent laws, including anti-discrimination laws. It's part of your licensure.

Although I agree with his assertion in general, I won't buy anythinh from Signorile. He made his career on outing gays against their will...and not just closeted gays who worked against our rights. Anyone was fair game, and it was not his choice to make.

No, you haven't lost the right to say that. Good god, man, just just said it. What you don't have a right to do is to discriminate in business against the purchasing public. But then discrimination like that is illegal, and was never a right in the first place.

Did

How fortunate and convenient that you are unable to read that definition without seeing the words in it after "fear". You have very selective reading comprehension.

Thanks for the backup. I composed my post before reading yours. Helps to know I am being understood by sane people, if not the people to whom I post directly.

Poor little Pierre, posts so descriptively about something he craves, while trying to be offended. Some retirement! Soon he will be posting as a woman, packing for a vacation to Hawaii,

Hi Jade, have you talked to Olive lately? She's wondering why you banned her from topix. Then curteese wonders why I'll never register as to avoid hyper aggressive homosexual men like him. His personal descriptions sound like he's a real Jeffrey Dahmer.

Mr/Mrs/Ms poster from MA. Your obsession with me is beyond strange. As for Olive, I have no idea of which you are posting. I'd suggest therapy, but freaks like you seem to take out the gay threads as such. Enjoy yourself….alone..solo…..
