Hallmark called, they want their soppy sentiment back.
Sorry you vile monster, marriage is a legal contract.
If I'm not mistaken, I believe I read an article recently that described a mass case of nausea at the Hallmark headquarters in Kansas City, Missouri.

My guess is that Kimmy actually sent them a copy of his "poem" (chuckle).

However, I did read in a related story that "The Weekly Reader" and "Highlights Magazine for Children" are interested in his work.

Seriously... Can you just picture Kim sitting on his bed, writing that load using his hot pink pen with strawberry-scented ink? Justin Bieber playing in the background... Sitting beside his pink, stuffed bear; the one that says "I wuv u" across its tummy... Him staring down at that useless vag of his, wondering, "Will I EVER get my period and become a woman?"

First, it's not my morality, it is classic morality, common across many cultures
Second, it is reality and it does involve suppression. Most things in life do. That's a part of reality. Often, it's a crappy deal too. Everyone has to deal with it.
Third, my main focus on here is the reality that ss couples do not equate to marriage. It annoys the hell out of people in denial, because I accurately push simple reality in their face.
Four, I deny no one a loving relationship. I dare to expose an attempt to impose a counterfeit relationship on marriage.
Fifth, anal sex is not normal or healthy.
Sixth,'steal children'?'Forcibly teach'?'A false religion'? You're losing it mikey.
FINALLY, I've never said sexuality is a choice.
Just curious. Are you a blonde lesbian, or a really effeminate guy?
1.----Whatever your justification it's wrong and cruel, that's why there are educational programs to right this warped 'biblical' out dated sense morality.
2.---- Doesn't mean it's right or that it has to continue. Change all starts with an open mind and compassion.
3.----yes they do, you're just hung up on gender.
3a.---They aren't in denial, you are. There are all different kinds of marriage, some are for convenience, some are for love, some are financial security, some are arranged, some(like in Hollywood) are for publicity and some are for the sole purpose of reproduction. The point is; You need to stop forcing your bigotry, non-acceptance in peopleís faces and calling it reality when it's not, it's judgmentalism and forcible repression.
4.- yes you do.
4a.--- there you go again judging. It's not counterfeit, it very real to the people in them and your just showing your lack of acceptance to anything different than your preconceived notions.
5.---Yes it is, it been documented in over a thousand species, for people, they just need to take precautions, show some tenderness and caring.
6.-- No I'm not; it happens it all the time and itís big money for the Catholic church. Hell it's in the news all the time, in most states where gay adoption is not recognized, they do forcibly remove children. You need to read something other than your catholic propaganda.
FINALLY ---- if that's the case then why all the bigotry and nasty posts day after day? Show some compassion rather than your nasty belittling poems and quips.
Just curious.--actually I'm neither, just a masculine looking guy with not too many effeminate mannerisms, never dressed in drag and donít even go out to gay bars..and BTW I'm not a bitter person, youíve asked that before, I just have zero tolerance for ignorance, self -righteousness, bigotry and the belittlement of others.

I only see once reference to it.
And as it is I'm pretty f-ing skeptical it's an ongoing or common theme among gays but you believe what you want to.
As stupid as you are you probably think 98.5% of the gay population is in a bathhouse right now humping each others oiled up asses as if they were making a marathon porno orgy scene all the while spreading AIDS like wildfire and waiting until 9:45 tonight when they all hit the streets looking for boys under 12 who happen to be out at night for dates.
LOL!!!!
This hankerchief code is a JOKE buddy. It's about as reliable a source as believing you can pick up women in nightclubs as available men by learning 3 phrases.
Get bent you sad piece of shit. The only audience you'll gain is from other socially backward bigots you can find in here...the internet. You're a PUSSY. And probably always have been.

"I have lived in San Francisco, California all my life and have been involved in BDSM since 1973 and I have seen people wearing every single one of the colors on the first 3/4 of the original list over the past 29 years. I have been to every Folsom Street Fair since the first one in 1984 and people have continued to wear them there. People still wear the colors today on the annual leather march from The Castro to Folsom Street one week before the Folsom Street Fair. As sources, besides the websites, there is also a printed reliable source, the recent 2009 book Leatherboy Handbook by Vincent L. Andrews Las Vegas:2009 Nazca Plains, Corp., that mentions 41 colors congruent with the list."

Right.
And exactly where are these unisex bathrooms being put into public schools.
Fantasyland??
No, Portland Oregon for starters, soon in a school near you. PORTLAND, OR (KPTV)-

Portland's biggest high school has become the first in the city to install unisex bathrooms for transgender students.

There are now four single-stall bathrooms for students, along with two for staff members, open to everyone, regardless of gender or sexual orientation at Grant High School.

A Portland Public Schools spokesman confirmed the new unisex bathrooms, after a story about them first appeared in Grant Magazine, a publication produced by students in a college-level class at the high school.

The magazine reported there are 10 students at Grant who openly identify as transgender.

One student, a senior girl who has identified as being a boy for years, said he would not drink any liquids for nine hours to avoid using the bathroom at school.

You don't even have a God damned source for your pack of lies you dolt.
Might as well advise us Martians invented treadmills to keep humans lean so when they took a few to eat on occasion they wouldn't have to deal with marbled meat.
You're a fabricating IDIOT.
Sorry to inform you dan the BullShitmouthidot, war of the worlds wasn't real. There is no life on Mars. In findings that are as scientifically significant as they are crushing to the popular imagination, NASA reported Thursday that its Mars rover, Curiosity, has deflated hopes that life could be thriving on Mars today. The conclusion, published in the journal Science, comes from the fact that Curiosity has been looking for methane, a gas that is considered a possible calling card of microbes, and has so far found none of it. While the absence of methane does not rule out the possibility of present-day life on Mars ó there are plenty of microbes, on Earth at least, that do not produce methane ó it does return the idea to the realm of pure speculation without any hopeful data to back it up.

"What a bunch of improvised BULLSHIT."
The wearing of various colored bandanas around the neck was common in the mid- and late-nineteenth century among cowboys, steam railroad engineers, and miners in the Western United States. It is thought that the wearing of bandanas by gay men originated in San Francisco after the Gold Rush, when, because of a shortage of women, men dancing with each other in square dances developed a code wherein the man wearing the blue bandana took the male part in the square dance, and the man wearing the red bandana took the female part (these bandanas were usually worn around the arm or hanging from the belt or in the back pocket of one's jeans). It is thought that the modern hanky code started in New York City late 1970 or early 1971 when a journalist for the Village Voice joked that instead of simply wearing keys to indicate whether someone was a "top" or a "bottom", it would be more efficient to subtly announce their particular sexual focus by wearing different colored hankies.
So what's your point? Anyone who knows about gay history over the last 40 years or so knows about the "hankie code" and it's place in 1970's gay culture.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A stroturfing
Astroturfing is the practice of masking the sponsors of a message (e.g. political, advertising, or public relations) to give the appearance of it coming from a disinterested, grassroots participant. Astroturfing is intended to give the statements the credibility of an independent entity by withholding information about the source's financial connection. The term astroturfing is a derivation of AstroTurf, a brand of synthetic carpeting designed to look like natural grass.
On the Internet, astroturfers use software to mask their identity. Sometimes one individual operates over many personas to give the impression of widespread support for their client's agenda. Some studies suggest astroturfing can alter public viewpoints and create enough doubt to inhibit action.
So please list all the identities you have used on Topix. How many are there? 5? 10? more?

Are you out of your mind?!!!! there is nothing good about raising kids in a homosexual household. As far as benefits it will take a complete overhall to bring all paper work and documents up to the latest laws for homos. I think the gay cult should pay for the new forms.
There is nothing good about many of the "heterosexual" households either. There are so many dysfunctional hetero marriages, broken families, abusive relationships, single parent households, incest/rape, and divorces. It is appalling what it does to the children.
