well, when you're right, you're right. i hadn't been looking at the sexual charge that some people seem to get out of violence. i'm sure that there were even some rednecks who got a stiffy over watching rambo films and refuns of the spaghetti westerns.
and:
people seem to believe that the only thing which defines a homosexual is who they have sex with and how. they can't even look at the huge number of straights who have down low parties, and have same sex encounters in prison and in the military... especially the army and marines. they also believe that there's no such thing as a transsexual person because what defines us is what they can see when they peep through the cracks of the shit house doors. it must be sad to live in such a limited existence where they can only believe what they see, and still can't seem to understand that.
thanks. That was very kind of you. I'm glad I was able to explain my point of view more clearly to you.

Read this about Floyd who hates trannys
Floyd now stands alone as the sponsor of the bill (HB 2279), which he defended yesterday using incredibly transphobic rhetoric. In no uncertain terms, he explained that he would resort to violence if he ever encountered someone transgender in a dressing room:
FLOYD: I believe if I was standing at a dressing room and my wife or one of my daughters was in the dressing room and a man tried to go in there — I don’t care if he thinks he’s a woman and tries on clothes with them in there — I’d just try to stomp a mudhole in him and then stomp him dry.
Don’t ask me to adjust to their perverted way of thinking and put my family at risk. We cannot continue to let these people dominate how society acts and reacts. Now if somebody thinks he’s a woman and he’s a man and wants to try on women’s clothes, let him take them into the men’s bathroom or dressing room.
In an extended interview with WTVF News Chanel 5, Floyd doubled down on his comments, claiming that his bill doesn’t “penalize anybody,” it “protects everybody,” and he could “care less” what transgender advocacy groups think. Watch it:
Great post. I'm sure Floyd can SOMEHOW come up with instances which clearly demonstrate just how dangerous transsexuals are to other women or men.

Jerry Springer perhaps?

He'd do better fighting fluoridation and that "communist plot" one more time!

He's a flucking looser and i'm putting him up as a poster child for far rights from Tenn
Maybe we should start a tinfoil drive for him so he has enough hats for himself, his wife and children.

It would be the "christian thing" to do (wink wink)

Not to mention the number of 4th amendment lawsuits the state would face
His kind would claim it's a "States Rights" issue!

personally, i'm against 'fluoridation'. what they're dumping into the water is fluoric acid, a deadly byproduct of petroleum distillation. they had tried dumping it into old oil wells, but it ended up seeping into the groundwater, and thence into the mississippi river where it killed everything from around baton rouge to the gulf. for lack of anything better to do with it they decided to call it fluoride and have people like you and me drink it. YAY! conservatism.*grin*
