Another irrelevant hissy fit.

You confuse me attacking someone who attacks me with an attack on SSM. Being that you are angry and stupid.

You mean another attack on a hypocrite against marriage equality.

You say I only attack SSM supporters. But if you weren't stupid you'd notice that I only attack those SSM advocates against marriage equality for polygamists. Such as yourself, even though you have flip flopped recently to avoid revealing your hypocrisy.

Why would I lie and say I support poly? Just to feel all you hypocrites hate?

Bottom line. I support marriage equality, you lie and say you do but you really don't. Shall I re-post some of your earlier hateful rants?

Now you are singing a new tune, but it's a lie of course.

I guess you didn't like the point, made you trollish again.
No confusion by anyone. You know a ss couple will only ever be a sterile duplicated half of marriage. Everyone know that, even children.
In fact, all you can offer a child, at the most, is dad and 'dad', but never mom. Again, a duplicated half, but missing a parent that every child wants, needs and deserves.
How do you ever justify that to the child???

You clearly don't understand honey. There is no 'implication' in what I said. And you clearly have no reasoned response. Because there is nothing you can say against the simple truth.
Nor do I need to impose any 'approval'. I simply expose reality, and it annoys the hell out of you.
Snicker.
lol.
again, thanks for the chuckle, bi, i mean ki.

you clearly have your own perception of reality - and you can go ahead and live in your own little world. fine and dandy.
however, the issues surround legalities, not your frayed thoughts. the arguments have been presented in court, without your "help" and so far, your side has failed in it's attempt to defend a legal bias against same sex marriage and homosexuality. the excuses for your side are dwindling, just as support for your side is dwindling.

good luck bi, i mean ki. you'll be needing it in the coming months.

That is indeed the difference, you aren’t asking to take away anything from me, or them, but they sure want to take away something from you.

Well, I live in Knoxville to be closer to my family in Greeneville.
Knoxville doesn't have what I consider to be ideal weather--I hate the summer temperatures. And the winters aren't as cold and snowy as I remember when I was a kid. But autumn is still beautiful. I always missed autumn when I lived in San Francisco.
The political atmosphere in Knoxville is wonderful. The city, itself, is very liberal. We have a female, democrat, who is our mayor. Our city leaders recently voted to include an anti-LGBT discrimination policy for their employees.
And even though the small counties around us carried Mitt Romney during the last presidential race, the majority of Knoxville residents voted for Obama.
The LGBT magazine, "The Advocate", listed Knoxville as one of the top LGBT friendly cities in America last year.
And our Gay Pride Parade was the largest in the state last year. There were over 15,000 in attendance. We've outgrown our traditional site to celebrate Gay Pride and are moving it to a larger location this upcoming June.
So, it's not a bad place to live. I just have to deal with a few months of REALLY hot weather each year.
I was in Knoxville from 1979 (fall) to 1986 (summer). Finished my undergraduate degree, worked in the university for a year, then did 3 years post graduate for a doctorate degree.

It is a nice place IMHO. But it does get hot and humid in the summer. Don't like the weather, give it 15 minutes to change.
