So much for the 9%. Let alone 4%.
What a waste of money on another unethical immoral special interest group stereotyped by our own govt that is doing worse than good for anybody.

Queers are the 1%, demanding all the government benefits.
They demand trillions in welfare just because they have the hots for little kids.

Our govt needs to be shrunk by at least half and the 33,000 lobbyists and special interest groups and pork projects be banned from any tax dollars. We can eliminate most unions from the public sector as well. Cut the corporate tax rate in half too. And by all means END THE FEDERAL RESERVE!

The comments above show me only what train wrecks human beings are: everything inaccurate, sensationalist, sounding frankly and honestly like *crying infants* for the most part. I can never get past the idea that "educated people" are endlessly calling gays "immoral," which is like saying that a bookshelf is road-ready: One has ... um, literally nothing to do with the other.

Such comments show *such* weakness and a need to feel better about oneself by inventing some "code" to which gays are held BUT NOBODY ELSE, NOBODY in the world besides them, and in thus showing their origins and true purpose, are negated into meaningless and show only *an insight into the speaker*, and bizarrely sad lives.

Go peddle your fundamentalist garbage in American forums. They don't demand any money up here, at least no more so than anyone else does. They DO work and pay taxes too for fuck sakes, but I guess that doesn't entitle them to the same entitlements you have right?

The pedophile accusations are just bullshit pure and simple. Just because a man likes men, doesn't preclude he likes little boys.
That would be like arguing that because a man likes women, he'll automatically diddle little girls too cuz that's just the way they are.

Go skulk back into your cave and don't come out 'til you've evolved some more...damn talibaptist!

Great, go whine about it on an American forum. Nothin' anyone up here can do to change a thing down there.
Not even really sure what this has to do with the subject but, whatever.

And Z!

It's even smaller when you say one point two percent. A waste of another 'special' interest group and taxdollars. No wonder why we're broke.

This is about a particular demographic in Canada, dipshit. Not the USA. And it counts people who say they are in same-sex relationships. It does not count people who are gay and single, nor does it count gay people in relationships who do not say so on the census form. Of course you can't count above 3, which is the number of your teeth.

As for the low demographic of gay relationships in metro Vancouver:

Well, who makes up a good part of the population of metro Vancouver? Chinese, and in particular, first generation Chinese immigrants (lots of rich people who left Hong Kong when the People's Republic took it over). These people come from a culture where not being married to the opposite sex and having sons to carry on the family name is treated as a shame to the family. So it would be much more interesting to compare the stats. across Canada.

Of course, the stupid trolls (who are all in the US) think this is about the US becuase they are not literate enough to read past the headline.

You obviously failed algebra boy. The city itself has plenty of tooty fruity freaks and the numbers can be applied on a broad basis. Amazing how one doesn't get their way they cry foul. Less than 2% sounds good to me. Why does it even matter anyhoot. Typical Canuck.

Well duh! Why would a large majority choose to be queer? It's a nasty lifestyle. I'm surprised at the number that do choose that discusting lifestyle. I suspect there's something mental going on. Instead of getting help they would rather pretend it's normal. Really? Think about what they really do....

[/QUOTE]The study actually reveals that adult queers don't have all that much to do with other adult queers, but that adult queers prefer to prey on little kids.
Sometimes they use the law to set up fake households where they can get custody of little kids, which queers use as disposable sex-toys.

Actually, it means exactly what I think it means. However, I meant to write "presume". Oh well, my bad.
So, how many little girls have you diddled today? I only ask because I assume you're hetero and like women, so using the logic you applied in your first post, you must also like little girls.
75% of North American women have been sexually abused in some way before they were teenagers. It sure as hell ain't gay people doin' all that kiddy diddlin'.

I suppose the next lame argument you'll use is that gay marriage will ruin the "sanctity" of marriage.

LOL.
You're another homosexual genius making up garbage like 75% of females are raped by males to try to justify that it's OK for 90% of adult queers to rape and molest little kids.
That's pretty sick, ma'am.
