Oh, who cares about you? Don't flatter yourself. You aren't worth the trouble to "yell" at.

I just feel bad for the poor gals of Kentucky. They have to see YOU naked. Yikes.

Really?? What if you're driving across the desert, you're nearly out of gas, and the last gas station refuses you service? Drive on into the desert and hope for the best?
What if you were traveling across country, it's getting late, and you can't find a hotel that will allow you and your family to register? Keep driving? No problem??
How about this? You live in a small town with only one grocery store. That store refuses you service. So you have to drive 15 miles to the next town and do your grocery shopping there? Okay?
It's not all about florists and bakeries, you know.
Why would a gas station refuse to sell you gas?
Why would a hotel refuse to give you a room?
Why would a store in the middle of nowhere refuse to sell you groceries?

Yeah, right. Gay people yell at you because you like females. Sure. We believe that. It totally happens.

What are you, 8 years old?? Why do you think anyone would believe such a ridiculous statement?

All I can say is that you must have been running with an exceedingly immature and stupid crowd if you saw those things happening.
It's ridiculous to even imagine such a scene, let alone pretend it actually happened. You're trying to get us to believe that you went to orgies full of gay guys that had naked women there, too?? Really?? What were the naked women doing there??
Let us talk about reality instead of your imagination.
Grow up.

ejohn is a state-ist who believes with out government we'd all be miserable. Government is his God. The only reason he can buy gas is because the government forces the owner to sell it to him. If he went to a hospital emergency room the doctors would take one look at him and refuse to treat him and would sit there drinking coffee while watching him die. The government must micromanage all our lives or he'll never eat food again or have a place to live.

You never know what might make gays upset.

You're an idiot AND a liar. No gay people are yelling at you for liking females. That's a giant pile of excrement. Can you at least ATTEMPT to say something both truthful and relatively intelligent? Or are stupid lies all you got?

Alright! You want truthful?

Homosexuals engage in sexual intercourse with those of the same gender!

Try to dispute that and call me a lier smaty pants!

Every day is Stupid day at your house, unless you're on vacation. I've had weirdos refuse all sorts of business to me. It's extraordinarily rare, but then I live in New England. We've had hotels turn us away when traveling to less enlightened states. And I'm sure there are entire towns that would refuse to do business with a gay couple in their midst.

Next time you travel don't announce that you're gay and order them to do business with you.

Hey dingbat: they figured it out when my husband and I wanted only one room. It may also have something to do with the rings we wear. But, of course, that's flaunting it in your book.

I've go an idea, Wondering: why don't you stay in your own virtual reality cocoon and sever your internet connection. Then you won't have reality intruding on your little fantasy world. You surely won't be missed.

I do not believe a word of that. People are in business to make money not upset your sense of self importance.

Do you want to be taken seriously? It sure doesn't sound like it. You sound more like that Lesbian waitress who wrote a nasty note to herself about not getting a tip, left it on a table and then made a big flaunt about how horrible Christians are to gays. She made the whole thing up.

I have gone to motels and hotels all over the world with my gay cousin and we have NEVER been refused a room because he was gay. They all probably just assumed I was his boy friend. One night it was like 3am and they had one room left with a lone double bed next to the maids room and we took it. That was in Salinas CA.

You really live in your own little world. Lots of straight guys have had to share beds before. It is no big deal. Former President Lincoln shared a bed with the same man for over 6 years and no one believes he is gay. Even when he lived in the white house. I mean when they lived in the white house.

Twisting what other people write, insulting them and calling them names my be all that you are good at. It certainly is all you do. There just has to be something more to your life than this.

And what normal people call being obnoxious you call being out. You can be out of the closet and still be a nice person. You need to learn that. Just because you are out of the closet, at least on Topix, it does not mean you have to be insulting and confrontational.
