What "emptiness"? What "lifestyle"?

You can't teach what you're clearly ignorant of.

Why are you trying to bait me into a racial discussion?
You are the one who keeps mentioning race.
I was merely commenting on a statistic that over 70% of all black men abandon their children, and now you have to get all racial on me?
You brought a statistic into the discussion for the sole purpose of denigrating others. And you missed your target completely.

There is nothing wrong with collecting statistics and using them for constructive purposes. But you do the opposite.

[QUOTE[ FACTS are not racist.[/QUOTE]
But racist people often cite facts to rationalize their prejudice.
People who make a point of telling you their kids are NOT black are. You proud of that for some reason?
Nice. You bring up the race of a board contributor's grandchild--knowing nothing about the grandchild or her parents--then accuse the grandmother of being racist for declaring the race?

You must imagine yourself to be quite clever. I doubt your wardens are quite as amused.

Classic Projection.
I'm an ADVOCATE for protecting children, and you would prefer that they remain ignorant to the dangers they face by engaging in unsafe sex.

REALLY?
So my point is that it's DANGEROUS to go back to some anonymous guys place to play video games and you're disagreeing with me?
Quite a risk taker you are, but I would still have to classify that as unsafe behavior.

Wonderful....but my point is there are women who once identified as a lesbian, just as you did, and continue to do so, but those women no longer identify as such. It make such an identity no less valid at the time to them than it does to you now.
Men and women who are bisexual know who they are and know that they can flow from one gender to the other with NO issues......I simply can not do that!!!
At one point you had had a relationship with a man, if I recall a previous post, way back when correctly, yes?

For most it's called being BISEXUAL, for some like myself, it's trying to be something you are not and we eventually come to terms with who we are......even if people like you don't want to understand it!!!

There's NOTHING wrong with trying to protect children from being harmed by pedophiles and child molesters......but your issue is NOT just with pedophiles or child molesters, but Gay men as well and you will pass out misinformation to accomplish that goal even if it means harming Gays, right?

If you were truly concern with protecting children, you'd educated yourself with proper information instead of religious anti-gay biased sites......take a look at this one:

You're point is that you can't get your mind off of those sordid scenarios. What our gay youth need to learn--just as our straight youth need to learn--is to form healthy positive relationships. You want to lie to them and tell them that positive relationships are impossible. Isn't that really a prescription for exactly the kind of behavior you say you want to discourage?

Anyway, I'm glad to know that your job as a school counselor is just as much a delusion as your fantasies about my sex life. Really, though, I find your fixation on me quite creepy.

Yes it does, look around you. It's already being redefined.
Do you know how dictionaries define a word? Simple, usage. That's why they have to keep printing new dictionaries each year.
Biologically yes, unless they choose to change.
Biologically yes, unless they choose to change.
Male, female and neutral. That's three.
By and large yes, but it can also be done in a laboratory.
The bottom line, is there's two sexes, male and female, men and women are still anatomically and biological males and females, and human reproduction is still overwhelmingly sexual. So the more things change, e more,they stay the same.

I love it when you ignore most of what I post and fall back to the "you don't want to understand" position. That must be a universal female behavior.

Again some women who once identified as "lesbian", didn't identify as "bisexual". Their "lesbian" identity at the time was just as valid to them as yours is to you. They chose, at some point, to discard that identity. That's my point. It's not set in stone for every woman, or man, for that matter.

And that is all true in- and outside of marriage and doesn't negate same-sex couples from marrying.

And how is any of that relevant to marriage?

Want to know something?
Most straight people, myself included, would take no notice of gays whatsoever if we weren't FORCED to.
Ever see a group of men having a "Straight Pride" march down Main Street at Noon wearing azzless chaps and dog collars? Or gyrating buck naked on parade floats with rainbow wigs screaming "We're Straight, we're here, get used to it!"
Or suing a schools system so that "Heather has a Mommy and a Daddy" or "Tony Marches for Straight Pride" be included in the curriculum?
Have you ever had to endure someone "outing" himself to you as straight or tearfully explaining to you when he first knew he was straight?
No. Because straight people don't go ON AND ON about their sexuality constantly.
Or maybe you find this sort of public display appropriate. It takes all kinds...
