Pride group to conduct campaign urging small P.E.I. town ...

I suppose sitting in a prison in Leavenworth gives one too much time to sit and browse the GLBTQ websites.  (Thursday Jul 21 | post #3)

LGBT history lessons approved for California classrooms

So, to give equal time, all hetero mass-murderers should be taught in school, also? Is your aim to educate children into becoming mass-murderers? Wow, you're twisted.  (Saturday Jul 16 | post #5)

J.J. Abrams 'really proud' of gay Sulu in 'Star Trek Beyond'

Of course, you always have the option, like I do, to not bother with these discussions about the sexuality of a fictional character. We may not care one way or the other, but I am sure die-hard fans of the series care a great deal. I hesitate to think of the odd things you may be interested in.  (Friday Jul 15 | post #2)

And your point is? Someone was a mass murderer in the 15th century, and what?; you are projecting that into the 21st century to say it is very rare, considering how many hetero murderers there are? I agree.  (Friday Jul 15 | post #2)

It depends upon if your sex partner is a loving and caring person, or just a rutting sexual opportunist. Even the very first time can be enjoyable and pain free if the top truly cares about the one being penetrated.  (Tuesday Jul 12 | post #49)

A gay Republican delegate gave an emotional plea for her ...

Some years ago a "gay Republican" would not have even blinked on my radar. These days it seems like a contradiction of terms.  (Tuesday Jul 12 | post #1)

Really? Then if the following stats are even close to true, you would have us believe that the vast majority of men who are 80 years or older have engaged in anal intercourse. Since gay men are such a small proportion of the population, that would mean that an awful lot of straight men are engaging in that activity. You should be checking out your male friends, and make sure you don't bend over in their presence. Enlarged prostate, occurs in 50 percent of men age 51 to 60, 69 percent of men age 61 to 70, and in 90 percent of men age 80 or older. An enlarged prostate, also called benign prostatic hyperplasia, is the non-cancerous growth of the prostate that often occurs as men age.

By the way, looks like another slow news day on Topix. I'll banter with you some more tomorrow.  (Monday Jul 11 | post #38)

Well, I guess we could go jousting with windmills, but since it is not high on my list of priorities, I think I'll let it go. I have more important issues to deal with, such as my enlarged prostate :-)  (Monday Jul 11 | post #37)

In what way are you concerned? Are you affected by it, by any chance, or is it just a mental exercise for you? I'm not affected by it, but I'm also in favor of anyone jailed losing their right to vote. After they come out of jail, I would be amenable to them re-gaining that right once they finish any parole they may have to serve.  (Monday Jul 11 | post #35)

Anything specific I said that you consider an insult? I don't remember it. As to you staying or going, I could not possibly be less concerned. Oh, and nowhere did I order you in any way to leave, so my owning Topix is not even a consideration.  (Friday Jul 8 | post #74)

To what are you specifically referring? Recently, it has been the conservatives attempting to disenfranchise the elderly, poor, and blacks. Then there is the issue of felons losing their right to vote. Anything else you have on your mind?  (Friday Jul 8 | post #28)

I'm not aware that has happened. Has it? When it happens I'll consider the specifics of the case before offering an opinion. This is a subject that is in the here and now, however. So I am offering an opinion on it. By the way, Google "short players in the NBA". I think it speaks to your question .very well. The first listing I got was about the 15 shortest players in the history of the NBA.  (Friday Jul 8 | post #25)

Except that it bothers you, whereas I am not at all upset by it. So why not just leave and have one less irritant in your life? Otherwise you will continue to be upset by it for no apparent reason.  (Friday Jul 8 | post #71)

You sound just like those folks who are in opposition to equal rights for gays or blacks or whoever. Every time someone wants another facet of equality there will always be those who say they are taking it too far. Wouldn't you be offended if someone called you "Miss" instead of "Mr."? I'm only guessing here, but I would think it is offensive to someone who is transitioning. Know what irks me? It's when a person in a service-related job calls me Mr. Ralph, instead of using my family name. Either call me just Ralph, or use my family name with the Mr. Actually, the Mr. bothers me the most. Just call me Ralph.  (Thursday Jul 7 | post #8)
