What Johnny Knoxville (as well as the pole dancer who changes names along with it's tampon), dishonestly didn't say about the Folsom Street Fair, is that it's documented as to their having buttsex and jacking off in broad daylight.

Oh no, it isn't a "leather festival". It's one of Caligula's little fetes.

See, that's your problem, you assume while I post actual fact with cited sources.
Didn't you say you had an advanced educational degree?
So, what are you asking me to do?

Do you want the sexual orientation of every scientist who has observed SSSB in animals?

Do you want the sexual orientation of every scientist who has scratched his/her head and said, "We know SSSB exists in the animal kingdom, but damned if I know why."

Or do you want me to prove that only theories re: SSSB exist; that no scientist has definitively stated, "Eureka! I have discovered why some animals exhibit SSSB!"

I'm sure you understand that none of these questions can be answered.

Just because you found an openly gay scientist who opined about SSSB in animals doesn't mean that every scientist who has studied the subject has also disclosed his/her sexual orientation.

None of this makes any difference. Regardless of my educational background, I know enough about science to understand that there is a difference between someone offering an educated opinion and someone stating a fact based on expertise in the field.

Before you can claim the rights and privileges of marriage, you have to prove ss couples equate to marriage.
At it's most basic essence, marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.
Ss couples are a defective failure of mating behavior. Literally 'unmarriage'.
In other words, a mutually sterile duplicate gendered couple will only ever be half of marriage.

Let's see... Would God consider our country's current stance on "illegal" immigration to be an example of hospitality? Would God consider the multiple times our country has rained down bombs on other countries an example of hospitality? Maybe God considered our treatment of African Americans from the colonial days to the present to be an example of hospitality.

By the way, do you consider yourself to be the "Lot" of our generation?

First you claim homosexuality is normal.

Scientists aren't sure why some guys are attracted to blondes, while others prefer brunettes either. Sure, there are theories out there, but no one really knows for certain.

I know people who LOVE spicy foods, yet others detest them.

I personally HATE beets, but I have a good friend who will eat them every chance she gets.

Some people will only buy a Ford, while others are Chevy people.

There are many differences in people that scientists cannot definitively account for.

Are all tastes, preferences, and orientations unnatural because science doesn't fully understand the "cause"?

Only someone with about a 5 year old mentality would come up with something so asinine.

Show me where any scientist has said that he/she definitively knows why some animals engage in SSSB. Seriously...

There are theories out there, just like there are theories about homosexuality in mankind. But, to date, nothing has been proven.

Glendora, California 1978 a 24 year old lady went missing, now the LA County Sheriffs Department is on the job and digging up a back yard in the city of Glendora, California.

The person who reported her missing was her husband, the house has been sold three times since then.

Glad to see some real police department work is being carried out by them on Essex Street in the 500 block.

The neighborhood kids like the husband, but no wife? Wonder what happened to her remains?

1. How does your response answer the quandary of scientists not having an explanation for homosexuality, but can turn around and assert it is 'normal'?

2. Scientists do understand attraction. Mating behavior. It is why a butch lesbian dresses and acts like a man to attract another lesbian who almost wants a man, but not quite. It's just a major sexual screwed up. Well, it can't ever be a literal screw up, but it clearly is a defect.

Another limp brained gay twirl from the Queen of DeNial.

Same-sex marriages that are built on love, mutual respect, monogamy, and life-long commitment are equal to any opposite-sex marriage.

As you have said many times before, the potential for children in a relationship IS NOT a basis for marriage.

Why you continue your "What about the children?" campaign continues to baffle me.

Your TIRED "mutually sterile duplicate", "cross-cultural constraint", and "failure of mating behavior" material has gotten really old. Nobody believes it. Why should we deny same-sex couples access to legal marriage based on your opinions?

Now, I've answered your question. You answer mine...

You homophobic folks can relax

As you are in a dwindling minority there is a move to grant you underprivileged minority status.

We can build affirmative action plans so you can compete for jobs where you donít have to actually talk to real people.( it is not fair to use these programs where actual communication is involved as your disadvantage would hurt actual business )

We can set up hate crimes so that if you are physically attacked for being an ignorant moron you will have better protection under the law.

In some areas of the country we will have to guard against the impulse of segregation, you know, normal public schools vs fenced in reform schools

There will come a day when you can be treated as equals and though education your affliction could actually be cured. Fortunately your disadvantage is NOT automatically passed on to future generations, there may come a day when your disadvantage no longer exists.

Scientists can assert that homosexuality is normal by doing a very simple test. Namely, they can look around at NATURE (thus the name "natural) and see that homosexuality and SSSB exists pretty much everywhere.

Scientists can look at gays and lesbians and see that their sexual orientation and attractions DO NOT impeded their ability to function, live a happy and fulfilling life, and contribute to society.

If a person is capable of doing these things, then there is nothing "unnatural" about them.

Not knowing the "cause" or "reason" behind a person's attractions to same-gender people, certain foods, certain food preferences, etc. does not indicate that their behaviors, attractions, and preferences are abnormal or unnatural.

If you can show me one scientist who believes that a "cause" or a "reason" must be identified before preferences can be labeled as "natural", I'll eat my hat.

As has been pointed out to you multiple times, you have NO understanding of science--none at all.

You're like those guys who I used to work with in hospitals; the ones who worked behind a desk gathering admission information and who wore lab coats to throw the general public off--making them think that they were "medical professionals".

You say scientific-sounding things, but you're truly ignorant when it comes to understanding basic, scientific information.

You're worse than the "Great and Powerful Oz". He also professed to be an expert--a God--when he was nothing more than a carnival barker behind a curtain.
