---So I gotta ask. Do you have any yellow hankies????
LOL!!!
If you do....don't come meandering MY way cowboy.
It would take you a God damned year to memorize this bullshit. Hellova advertising tool though...albeit I find it hard to believe this is widely practiced anymore than wife swapping happens between heterosexuals.
"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."

Where in the Constitution does it say queers have any more rights than normal people ? What's next the "right" to marry your goat or your sibling(s)? Please stay in CA with the rest of fruitcakes.

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.

I myself have lived in a lot of places, not just one, and as to date I'm not as STUPID as you to identify an entire grouping of people with a specific action a few take.
Now MORON....given you';re heterosexual do you dress the little woman up in black crotchless rubber outfits with quarter sized holes so her firm nipples can poke out while you piss at her feet and beg for your "mistress" to slap you silly with her whip while you stand naked and shivering??
LOL!!!
There's a bunch of fruitcake straights that do that shit and worse yet I won't be as DUMB as to claim most heterosexuals get it on in such a fashion yet you're so GOD DAMNED stupid you're all too ready to claim gays are parading around with multicolored hankerchiefs and waving them like cheerleaders bounce pom-poms in the air advertising for "rim jobs" and getting their dicks sucked dry depending if the stick them in their right pocket or left...LOL!!!
You're a putz.

Like I said. BULLSHIT.
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 there are plenty of microbes, on Earth at least, that do not produce methane 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.

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?
No, your main focus on here is to troll and stir up drama. Own it, c*nt.
