I have an amusing story about this exact thing that happened to me one nite in the dorm at college (no alcohol involved either. LOL)
After a few years, and several upgrades to my GayDar(tm) I stopped being surprised at the occasional presumably straight friend that turned out to be gay.

I also stopped giving a damn about whether they were gay or not.

I guess NoQ has some growing up to do. Quite a lot of it, if his posts are any indication. He appears to me to be a young man struggling with his own sexuality.

I love that last part "but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States."
It really messes up the Religious Right's insistence we are a "christian" nation.
Then how can villages, towns, cities and states restrict gun rights, by requiring licenses and such, when that is a FEDERAL Constitutinal Right that they are restricting ? Could they also restrict your First Amendment RIGHT to publish a newspaper by requiring you to obtain a license for that also ? I think NOT !

I don't think you'll be putting Petercillin in your ear, Fa$$ot.
You're right, I won't.

Have anyone ever told you that you should avoid trying to be witty?

You aren't very good at it. When you try, you only make yourself look even more stupid.

But anyway, what DO you expect to accomplish here? So far all you have managed to do is convince at least several dozen people that you're some variety of belligerent, irrational retard.

Morning Strel,
So, just wondering what thoughts you have about SCOTUS taking the Prop 8 case and the Windsor case with regards to DOMA.

I appreciate your thoughts on this:-)

I agree. Though the "NoQ" show is amusing it is basically senseless.

Time to change channels.

No, sorry, as I said I am straight. Are you disappointed? It has been my experience that fervent homophobes are often people struggling with their own sexual orientation, and lash out as a result. Good luck with that.
As for delusional, I've studied the legal arguments on both sides of this debate for years now.
The gays will win, sooner or later, and there's really nothing you are going to be able to do about that, except possibly continue your campaign to make a damn fool of yourself on the Internet.
They've done research on it and tape a monitor to homophobes and to straight guy's wieners and show them gay porn. Guess who pops woodies? Hint, NOT the confident heteros.

I could watch hetero porn all day long..gag...and ZERO would occur in my pants!

I honestly haven't been following it that closely anymore, after so many tiresome and predictable gay marriage threads I sort of gave up. But I will read up on it since the SCOTUS has finally decided to actually do something.

I don't want to get into the legal stuff in detail without reading the petitions, so I'll try to do that this week.

I'm relatively certain that no one is describing you as "witty."

And oh yes, I think you do care what people think. Very much so, in fact, to a pathological degree.

You also care a great deal about what consenting adults do with their junk when you aren't around, which is kind of creepy.

As for your abuse, please spew more. I let you know if anything actually has an effect.

NoQ knows its true. He's externalizing his internal conflict. This is where the rage comes from.

Hey Fa$$ot, there's no such thing as a homophobe. Ain't no one afraid of no Queers. LMFAO
A phobe is a generic. I've heard of people described as chocolate phobes. No one is afraid of chocolate. It has become just a term for someone who has an intense hostility towards someone or something else for NO APPARENT REASON.

Did a gay beat you up as a child? Did your dad come out at a late age? Did your best pal admit his true self to you as adults? There is SOME reason for your overwhelming anti gay rancor. Better term for you: Gay hater? More accurate?

I know a LOT of hetero guys and they have NO problem with me, nor I with them. We are quite close and tease each other and ask questions about the other's spouses, etc, all the time. My boss and his wife used to double date with my partner all the time and we usually spent New Year's Eve together and once we four went away to Cambria, Calif. for the weekend.

No I don't think I will.

You're just too much fun, a real "soft target" in this environment.

I wonder how foolish you will look when you really get wound up.

Let's find out, and start with a question.

Why do you care what gays do with each other?

Nice insult Shiteater, The ultimate insult, call me what you are, a nasty A$$ Fa$$ot. Funny how when Queers want to insult someone, that's what they do, cause they know that's the biggest insult of all. There's nothing worse than a nasty A$$ filthy Queer.
Funny thing is, it doesn't work in reverse. You calling me a fag doesn;'t insult me in the slightest, besides being untrue. You might as well call me japanese, it would be the same to me.

But for you, it's a deep, cutting insult because it strikes so close to home, and exacerbates (google it) your self-loathing.

All your rage here is just you externalizing that rage and confusion over your wanting someone to do you up the butt.

Why else would you be so obsessed with the practice? I expect your hard drive is littered with gay porn.

Wasn't tring to insult you Fa$$ot. I'm just glad you shiteating Queers finally realized that being called a filthy Queer is the worse insult there is. That's what real normal people think of you. LMFAO
Well I'm normal. House, kid, wife, 9-5 job, etc. I'm a boring, heterosexual, politically moderate middle aged middle class white guy.

I expect that meets your definition of normal, and I think the gays have the right to get married, and that people like you are ignorant, self-loathing closeted busybodies obsessed with other peoples' genitalia and sexual practices.

It's quite creepy, you know, and paints a rather obvious picture of your obsession with gay sex.

Do you touch yourself when you think about it?

Come on, you can tell us. According to you, we're all fags, right?

HaHaHaHa. And normal, get back underneath the shithouse you pathetic piece of shit. Straight, normal LMFAO
Seems I hit a nerve.

You can, of course, believe what you like.

I believe you are externalizing conflict you have over your own sexuality.

Let's find out. You never answered my question:

Why do you care what gays do with each other?
