Gays will still only vote for democrats. They vote as a group. How many gay people got Judgeships under Obama, Bush, Clinton?

I'll withhold on an opinion on this until I see something about his record. Believe it or not, there are gay conservatives out there who are not bigots. We will just have to wait to see if he is one of them or not.

"Trump's nomination of Bumatay stands in contrast to his other 140 judicial nominees, many of whom have anti-LGBT records."

There is no evidence in that article or at wikipedia that this nominee 'stands in contrast' to Ill Duce Trump's other 140 nominees with respect to lgbt rulings or any other rulings.

Lucky for me then that I'm not a Democrat. Or a Republican. I can't commit 100% to any ideology.

Only those who formed my life have any reason to be proud. You, on the other hand, are not affected by how I live or what I believe, so you are deluded if you are attempting to take any pride for how I live or believe.

No offense, but I've learned to watch out for sarcasm on these threads.

so a "gay" person is limited to a certain political and ideological perspective or we must dismiss them?

I didn't say anything like that in that post. You sure are stoopit.

I said there's no evidence in that article to support its claim that this semi openly gay judge "stands in contrast" to Ill Duce Trump's other nominees. It says nothing at all about his ideology or judicial approach.

Nope. Just simply because there is a lot of sarcasm from both sides of any issue on Topix.
