The Fairness Coalition says Louisville, Lexington and Covington have also passed similar anti-discrimination ordinances.

You can take a positive gay affirmative story like this and make a homophobic joke about it? Good God, you are vile.

Internalized homophobia is one of the most terrible afflictions one can suffer under. I never thought of it before this,but I bet that drives most of your odd behavior. Get counseling!

Your "dry" humor reminds me of "dry" champagne or wine, undrinkable and sour.

ROFLMAO!
Many of those good ole boys down here ARE queers. I've never heard of a hate crime being committed here. Heterosexuals and Homosexuals mingle freely and happily together here, and no one seems to care. I love it and I love this peaceful place.

Nothing on Topix shocks me anymore. I don't understand how some people don't get tracked down by law enforcement and arrested or put in a mental institution because of some of the comments that they post on internet forums.

I don't support the gay lifestyle but I don't judge gay people. No one should be bullied. People should mind their own business. Let and let live.
