1. I wasn't trying to say, nor did I say, that your sexism was against men. Your sexism is against the feminine quality. I might be wrong that it's sexism. You might be opposed to all non-conformity.
2. You claimed that there was nothing biological about a straight man being effeminate. How do you know this? Why is that important? I would argue that causality is only relevant if you think that being effeminate is a lesser state, or immoral.
3. I have no idea what your criteria is for parsing qualities as masculine of feminine. This is something you would need to explain.
4. You need to explain how a man showering with other men and commenting on their diversity is being effeminate, and why that is something worth mocking a person for.
5. Why does anyone comment on observed diversity at any time? Should one not notice, or just not comment, if that observation is made while people are not wearing clothes? Is this something that women generally do often, that men generally wouldn't do?
6. What is funny about it? It seems juvenile and ignorant. If it is funny, you should be able to explain why it's funny.
You keep trying to use terms you don't understand and are showing a ton of ignorance for east to grasp concepts so I don't know how much further I can take this

1) Yes you are wrong to call it sexism. It also had nothing to do with conformity. Please learn what terms means and then when they are applicable

2) Don't backpedal now. You said I was speaking out of ignorance when I said it wasn't biological. Prove it or look like an idiot that calls people ignorant for things he doesn't actually understand himself I guess

3) I don't need to explain anything. You made incorrect assumptions and spoke out of ignorance. Kind of ironic right,

4) Again I don't need to explain anything. And I didn't say that particular example was effeminate. I actually don't know what to call that. I was simply responding to two different claims. Both against a guy being effeminate and the claim people have tried to imply someone is gay as an insult. As for why I mock him about it, it's because he repeatedly lies and claims a poster on here abused his child.

5) Too stupid to address

6) Again I don't need to explain anything. Humor is subjective.

You believe in a myth, RR.
That is your opinion, Tide.
The government doesn't define marriage, it defines legal marriage.
I thought your objection was rooted in a belief that allowing legal same sex marriage would change how people would conceptualize marriage.
If you have objections to same sex marriage, what's your best argument against it?
What's the difference between marriage and legal marriage?

Even as the name implies, same sex marriage, it's different than marriage.

If the Bible is defining what "God" is, "God" can't exist.
If you removed all the contradictions you'd still be left with a definition that falls outside what we would call natural. Until such time as the extraordinary claims are demonstrated as possible, they must be considered supernatural.
No.

According to the Bible, God exists.

Never read it?

I feel the same way about women that act like men, so does that indicate a disdain for men?
Get out of here with that basic logic'

Next you will try to tell me that I don't hate dogs because I don't like it when a man runs around on all fours and barks and pees on my lawn

To be honest - science-fiction has become science-fact.
In many instances in the past and now into the future, science-fiction will become science-fact.
Example, 3D printing.
If one is to llok back through the pages of Science-fiction - as in the Star Trek replicators. This appears to be the onset of something big science-fictionee - and now has become science-fact.

I think the mentality that people have in thinking that science fiction stays in science fiction, is ludicrous.

Correct - you didn't and I never stated you did.

Please stop thinking I am always out to get you, it is a false notion.

"I never said that I think science fiction stays in science fiction."
- I know you said it is "Fiction."....and "isn't real".

Do you need to explain the use of your words for those who don't understand what you are trying to convey?

I disagree in some part in that science-fiction is fiction, because I've already shown that science-fiction does not always stay in a fictionous world, because many science fiction ideas have become science-fact.

That is all I wanted to add....thanks for responding.

Here's a few more religions that have deity claims too.

Never read their books(think bible)?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eckankar
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hinduism

HAHAAA...

Oh, yeah, you don't believe in those deities - mostly - even though your deity belief draws some aspects from those others...

MY GOD IS SO FRIKKEN REAL!....
