Why does it matter to you?
Homophobia is so odd.
Do you have some sort of sexual insecurity?
I'm a straight chick, when it comes to lesbians, I don't have any animosity (look it up) towards them. I just figure, "More men for me!".
Why don't you have a similar attitude towards gay men?
It's so strange you would feel it's OK to beat a person up because they are gay.

That is terrible... I think they should involve extra efforts to find whoever did this... Because I think that they would just kill anyone.. I believe they just used him being gay for an excuse...

there's nothing in lamar county's on-line records indicating any arrest or jail time for burke burnett after 2010. that was for criminal mischief. in 2009, there was a DWI charge and in 2005 some sort of forgery charge. nothing else since then.
oh yeah

How can an adult believe that? Eve was made from Adam's rib. Eve would have had the same DNA Adam did. Eve would have been born a man.
Only really stupid people, people who don't even know about DNA believe that Bronze Age myth is true!

All humans are female starting out, we stay female are turn male before we are born. Point is, we are born male to keep the species going. It's not natural to want the same sex. They can argue til they are blue in the face, but being queer is not normal and that's a fact. They want it to be concidered normal but it's not, period. We get po'd at queers because they try to force their abnormal lifestyle on us, not because we are insecure. That's something THEY put out there, and you buy it hook, line, and sinker.

There is same sex sex in nature, that's the definition of natural.
Your homophobia is caused by your inability to deal with your own same sex desires.
I'm sure nobody is forcing anything sexual on you, because when you step on a scale it says, "One at a time, please".

This happened around Halloween 2011 and people are still talking about it on here. That alone speaks volumes.
