if everyone just wants to be accepted and treated the same - why make announcements about your race, religion, preference and all...

I agree, bimbo!

Heterosexuals should stop with the public weddings, the engagement announcements, the rings, the discussion of dating experiences, the high school prom, and above all get the photos of the spawn of the desk at work. Keep it on the down low and stop shoving your lifestyle choice down everyone's throat, you loudmouthed str8 people.

Praiz!

"Among the purchasers is Laura Ricketts, an out lesbian who is also on the board of the gay rights organization Lambda Legal. She came out to her family in her 30s."



She may not know much about baseball

But she does enjoy an occasional Double-Header...

Perhaps she'll switch the Cubs to softball..hey, they don't seem to be any good at hardball, so maybe it's a good idea.

You're much funnier when you do your Jack McFarland impression than when you do your crazy atheist thing. Just so you know.:)

The first?

Everything associated with sports in general is gay.

Sports are just an excuse for one group of gays, er guys, to go and touch another group of guys. And when they're done the get naked and shower together...nothin' gay about that. Queers.

Wow a gay baseball club owner...

Golly gee if this trend continues we'll have openly gay actors and actresses.

Possibly even openly gay politicians..

Attention Homosexuals

Since the Dawn of Man, freaks like you have been running around sticking things up your butt.

Since the Dawn of Time, Society has said "Hey you freaks, that doesn't belong in your butt", and shunned you. You are freaks.

Today, Society still says "Hey you freaks, that still doesn't belong in your butt", and continues to shun you. No government mandate nor Hollywood glamour is going to change that. Freaks.

In one thousand years, Society will still say "Hey you freaks, get that Robot's penis out of you butt", and then they will shoot you with their ray guns. Evaporated Freaks.

Moral of the story. You are freaks. Nobody cares if you are freaks as long as you keep your freakishness to yourselves. You aren't "breaking new ground". You never will.
