So, is it "Normal, decent people" who don't want queers moving in next to them, or is it you? I'm confused.

I own several rental units in Long Beach. I've had gay tenants and hetero tenants. I prefer the gay ones. They repaint, they spruce up the yard, they spend their own money to make their rental units far nicer than when they moved in.

I have had to do 3 evictions and all of those were heteros, all of which left the units beyond filthy and dirty with rotted food in the ruined refrigerator. Yeah, guess who I prefer as a tenant.

I can't discriminate, of course, thus only rely on word of mouth for renting vacancies. I do have about half hetero tenants now and they all know how to behave,thank the lord.

It is not tough to fill vacancies, especially after the gay tenants left the place far better than when they moved in.

How nice that little liar can slap happy icons onto his own lying posts, little liar. You do realize that you have fooled NO one, little liar.

Living organisms do not have any "normal," does that mean you are not alive?

Neither do I. If a queer moved into my neighborhood I'd move.

Truth be told Roland, for most my life, folks have been happy to rent to me, especially since I was always willing to pay an extra charge for my husband and I to rent a one bedroom!

Now that I think about it, the only times people haven't been happy having me as a tenant have been when OTHER PEOPLE HAVE CAUSED PROBLEMS simply because I' openly gay. Like the time I had QUEER spray painted across my outside wall and a neighbor cleaned it before it dried and I got home. That was blamed on me.

Not by the neighbor. But by the neighborhood. Oh and the neighbor was married with two children. Good people all of them. I think they said the children saw it first and told the parents. Those children were PISSED OFF! They knew me.

Your response to Roland post (#1 on this thread) deserves a Big Red Heart, a Green Check and a Groucho!

Just so ya know.

(And yes Roland I DON'T want that post removed. It didn't violate any T.O.S.)

Now may I have the lemons I just worked for. Nuts are welcome too. I pass them along to feed trolls.

They used to call that "riding the rails".

That was the P.C. term for a hobo or bum.

Where do you get all the ANGER? I log on here because it is fun to tease tight asses and intolerant folks, but you log on here to spit poison and silently shout with your posts.

Tell us, at the end of a bunch of foul angry posts do you feel BETTER?

Ya know what, you hate people for simply using different user names. You call them liars. I hate people that will lie even though you've caught them In a lie yet they maintain it's the truth. I hate people that defend guilty people just because of their sexual orientation, not because they're innocent. They are the real LIARS
Nope, you're the real liar.

I've been trying something, and I pretty much knew how it would turn out. I've actually been quite respectful to you for the last month or so, never calling YOU a liar, never calling you names, and if anything, I would sort of tease you or chide you without any name calling, or anything like that, just to see what you would do. Of course you have only responded with the most bitter anger imaginable.

Something bad happened to you in your past, concerning a gay person. I don't know if someone disappointed you, or hurt you or scared you, or what.

So I call OTHERS liars. Of course I do. I KNOW who you are. I recognize your stuff and like I said, have NOT been attacking you. If you are identifying with them, taking my critiques of their bad behavior to heart, then that is on you. All they do is come on here under a hundred false names and make idiotic vile postings.

If a gay person is hurt or killed, they gloat and cheer. If a gay man or woman is discriminated against,for any reason, they cry "Good job!" They are not here to discuss or debate or learn about another, they are only one to toss mud, then run giggling to the woods to hide. You have seen them. Surely you don't think that way. Once or twice your actual humanity has leaked through, but you run right back to hater status at the drop of a hat. I wonder why.
