Of course not! She'd be kicked out of the she woman man haters club!:)

A gay man who marries a woman, fathers children with her, and states he's happily married. Sounds like a success story.
Who says Lesbians hate men? I know plenty of women who are Lesbians and have no issues with the opposite-sex.....they just aren't interested in them sexually!!!

Like I said, if Josh Weeds is happy....good for him.....but he's not the poster child for how to be straight.......he might be bisexual or questioning who he is, but seeing as he has NEVER been with a man, it's a great publicity grabber!!!

A royal baby boy is born to the Dutchess of Cambridgre. I wonder if he was wrapped in blue, or the Union Jack?

Relax NorCal....just a joke....although there has to be a few who hate men.

But he not straight...nor I think does he consider himself a poster child.
.he might be bisexual
He has sex twice a year?
or questioning who he is, but seeing as he has NEVER been with a man,
Does that negate his orientation?

i've wondered since the verdict....what would a gun totin' he-man had done in martin's place?
whirled around & shot zimmerman without asking him anything?
Suppose two guys both pulled guns at the same time, but one flinched and killed the other. Then what? They were both standing their ground right?

That's like saying, It's the parents fault. If they hadn't taken their child to school that day, they wouldn't have died cause of the tornado in Oklahoma. Cause and effect. Everything you do causes something else to happen, sometimes good, sometimes bad.
Zimmerman should have turned back when the 911 operator told him to, but he didn't. Martin shouldn't have hid in the shadows to confront Zimmerman and kick his a:ss, but he did. Zimmerman was part of the neighborhood watch program. There has been a rash of breakins in the neighborhood, which no one had been caught. He was watching to see where Martin was going. He had no way of knowing if he was someone looking to break in or not. If Martin would have keep walking, he would be alive today.
Get outta town with that silly straw man argument. One is an act of God, the other is an intentional tort. Go take a law class. That neighborhood watch business is total crap. Zimmerman did not live in the neighborhood. Do your homework.

Better idea: Teach those little thugs of yours not to pick fights with people they can't beat. Then they won't have to shoot their way out of the mess they got themselves into.
Again, the jury didn't seem to buy the story, George "pick[ed} fights", I think they saw him more as a neighborhood watchman. Certainly, you have the right to protect your property and watching intruders isn't the same thing as picking a fight.

The jury seemed to believe Tray was the aggressor, based on the physical evidence. George's head was bashed against the street but Tray only had two wounds, bruised knuckles and a bullet hole.

But the bottom line remains as well as the fact that the police instructed him to cease and desist and NOT to follow him! Travon was going to visit his father and had every right to be there! Zimmerman should have taken the orders he was given and no one loses their life! You really don't know what exactly happened,Zimmerman could have gone up to him with his gun pointed at Travon and he simply felt he had to defend himself! Get off your high horse and try again bigot!

The bottom line, Tray got in a fist fight and George got in a gun fight; George won. The police instructions are meaningless, you have the right to watch your neighborhood. I recommend you carry a gun like George, so you don't get beat to death.

The same people who call George a racist are promoting same sex marriage. They do it the same way too, defaming political oppoenents.

Nothing to do with gays and lesbians. It has everything to do with Brian shouting out his stupidity for all to hear.

Good boy, Brian! You're following the script laid out by the gun manufacturers: more half-cocked George Zimmermans shooting their guns at innocent youths will cause more innocent youths to want guns to protect themselves. Of course, everyone will stand their ground until no one is left standing. Then Everyone else will hear about gun fights in the streets and need their own firearms to protect themselves. The more people who own guns, the more shootings. The more shootings, the more people need guns to protect themselves.

If you, like Brian, have neither common sense nor morals, buy stock in gun manufacturers instead of a gun. Hen huddle in your house while you watch the carnage on the TV news and your profits rise.

Sorry,I already carry a gun and have as a cop for 35 years! Zimmerman should have listened to the instructions from the cops and as I stated previously no one would have died! He stalked the kid and then shot him! Again stupid,you weren't there and don't have a clue as to what actually took place! Who knows maybe I'll see you walking somewhere minding your own business and I'll maybe stalk you and murder you,you know stand your own ground? That law in fact needs to be repealed! It's one thing to defend your own home but it's another to stalk someone because you're suspicious and then not expect what could happen! Travon had every right to be where he was! In most states Zimmerman is in prison for decades,where he should be now! Sorry but I've got a little more experience in these matters and you are a rank amateur!

I would tend to agree with ya......either he has some outrageous claim regarding marriage or it's something else to deter from the marriage debate.....which is also irrelevant because no matter Brian believes......the right to marry for Same-Sex Couples will continue!!!

1. Zimmerman lived elsewhere. So he could not have been defending his neighborhood.

2. Zimmerman had no authority to stalk people for any reason what-so ever. He was not hired by anyone in the neighborhood to do so.

3. Zimmerman stalked Trayvon who stood his ground. If not for Zimmerman's previous actions, none of this would have taken place.

There's no "couple's right" to marry. It's an individual right. The right to marry, is the right to enter into a legally recognized relationship. In thirty plus states that relationship is defined as the union of husband and wife.

It's not. It is a violation of the state anti-discrimination law. If you weren't an idiot, you would have caught that.

Do try to quit being such a bigoted, off topic, clueless twit.
