C'mon Sheila, you are just pretending to be a female
fan of guys who get drugged, drunk, or disoritented
enough to believe, you ... in your surely skewed
view of reality ... believe that that anything below
your waist matters to humanity. It doesn't. Not
in the least.
Bill,

I can assure you i'm no pretender like yourself. For example you pretend to be smart by speaking this psycho babble however nothing you say makes a bit of since. Just admit your a homophobic idiot and end all the madness. Have a wonderful evening.

Geez, don't you clowns ever get tired of playing that
infantile "homophobic" card? We have a gay and a post-op
transsexual in the extended family and I figure its their
lives to do with what they will .... just don't ask me
to give them a free ride from reason just because they
are heterosexual. We also have a couple of heterosexual
louts in the extended family and I don't give them a
pass either.

As for "psychobabble," there is a segment of American society
that plays the psychobabble game more than the gay community.
Go to any site with gays being the theme and you'll find one
after another spouting psychobabble of shrinks, sociologists,
and paralegals justifying their positions. Gays and lesbians
would be absolutely nowhere without the pseudo-intellectual
tripe presented by professional gays, lesbians, and their
apologists.

BTW, you didn't address my post in any substantive sense.
That's psychobabble for diversion and/or deflection.

homosexuals+lezzas should NOT be allowed to 'father' and 'mother' children.
It's an abnormal situation. Daddy and daddy snogging on the sofa..mammy and mammy having a session in the bedroom, it isn't natural, at least not for regular children to see.
When they grow up they won't see man + women relationships as normal but abnormal..NOT RIGHT!!
If that's true, why do most gays grow up in heterosexual homes??
your argument has no weight!

Quit arguing with the people who are against gays, lesbians, etc. Calling someone a "poofter", "faggot", or anything else is fine... I recall a well-remembered man who used bias morals like those, who is now known by virtually everyone nowadays for what he did...
What was his name again?

Oh that's right, Adolf Hitler

So what if they want to follow what he did, that is however, their choice...

Stop arguing with anyone who is against gays, and like to call them "poofters" or "faggots". I recall a man that virtually everyone has heard of, who was remembered for bias comments like those used by these people above. He is being taught about everywhere, even in school textbooks.
What was his name again?
Oh, that's right, Aldof Hitler.
If these homophobes want to follow the morals of this man who killed millions of innocent people based on their lifestyle choices, well than, they can if they want to...
