I don't think it's offensive. It's merely pointing out how sick this world has become.

Dad's new "husband".

Yeah, what is really upsetting is people posting on Topix under many names and refusing to register. Can YOU imagine such behavior?

I'm thinking they may have been going for irony and their joke was too subtle, sort of like FaFoxy's "jokes" that only amuse him.

I don't know the circumstances but don't find it offensive. In fact, it is trying to normalize gay events.

Have you seen the commercial for one of those reading tablets?

A lovely woman and handsome guy are side by side at some tropical resort. He can't read his Kindle, but wants one like hers and even does some soft flirting with her.
she points out her husband to stop him, but he points out HIS husband who is next to hers. They both wave and both husbands wave back.

I cannot believe that the million moms haven't had a collective coronary over it yet.

One good thing about signing in under many names, you can plaster your OWN crabby postings with smiley face icons. How convenient.

Good for this company.

The homosexual trick is to go on and on about their "husband," but what are they--they are also the "husband!!!"

Smoke and mirrors--it's homosexual squared.

Some people would rather watch two men kill each other than kiss.
It's a sick world out there.

You should strive to stop lying, coward.

If you would pick one name, register, and act like a human and not feel the need to lie round the clock, I would communicate with you respectfully, yet you choose to lie and make up fake cities and fake names for some reason. What do you get out of it?
