Why shouldn't gays be allowed to marry? What harm comes to you, if two strangers just happen to be the same sex, when they marry each other?
I have answered this many times before, you must have been in a deep speep as usual. SSM will only lead to a more unothodox ways of of life among a normal society. The next step to the gay lifestyles will be to teaching it in public shools.

The problem with your question is that you're including a premise you haven't proven true. Namely that a lesbian will dress & act like a man to attract another lesbian. Actually, that premise is rather flawed. If a lesbian were attracted to men she wouldn't be a lesbian.

If you want to discuss the way people dress that might be a better starting point for you.

Personally, I prefer to wear denim and tee shirts or work shirts (depending upon weather) as these suit my working conditions and comfort. I dress the same going out to eat in your average restaurant. If I'm going out to a nice place I'll wear a nice pair of jeans instead of the faded ones I wear while working. I'll wear a more casual styled shirt on those occasions. Rarely will I put on a suit. This isn't in order to attract anyone. It is just the way I am. I don't do all the smell good stuff either, that is no substitute for good ol' soap and water.

If you want to further the discussion about sexaul attraction, if my appearance is appealing to a woman, then odds are good she's going to be in the ballpark when it comes to being my type. It has been said that you can tell a lot about a person by the way they dress. Sooo, I'm not apt to draw the attention of some prissy uptight woman who is afraid to get a bit wet out riding on a bike. In short I wear what I feel comfortable in and if that attracts someone, so be it. If it doesn't that ain't no big thang either. This is the way I presented myself well before I met and married my wife and it appears that I'm not going to change anytime soon.

Moving right along to address your question directly, sort of. Are you suggesting that this is the way all lesbians dress? If so I think you're basing your question on a fairly narrow stereotype that doesn't necessarily apply to very many. Yes, I've seen some fairly butch lesbians. Oddly enough I see them as couples. OTOH, there are the two women living on the property next to mine. I'd hardly call their appearances butch at all. They were clothing that flatters their figures and they both wear make up and appear to be quite feminine IMHO. By the same token I know a fair number of straight men that primp and preen & go for the latest styles and load themselves up with cologne. They usually end up with women I find to be a bit tedious.

Hey ho, to each his (or her) own. People wear what they feel comfortable in. You probably won't find a corporate executive hanging out in bib overalls too often.

As a 50 year old straight married woman...I will give your question a shot. Woman no longer dress to attract a mate! Long gone are the days of "getting all gussied up" for the Church social to attract a husband. We dress for our own pleasure, comfort and needs. Business suits became a necessity when we wanted equality in the work place...we can rock those, we can rock jeans and a t, hoodies and sweats, dresses, skirts...whatever we want. Todays woman is capable of so much more than just breeding, don't ya think? We don't need to dress to attract mates...I think intelligent people have evolved beyond that.
Did you dress as a man or a woman to attract your wife? Did you "get all gussied up"? If you are what you say you are and really have a wife, you need to take some lessons on loving, compassionate acceptance from her. This speaks to your post about religious and cultural sensitivity on a different thread. Where exactly did you leave your sensitivity?
Yeah, that ^^^

Acorns alleged crimes (some convictions) included the following:

1. Registering false names
2. Giving financial reward for registering
3. Some financial shenanigans

But there is no evidence or allegations of anyone casting a false ballot. This is what your buddy Rittardo is claiming and it happens less often than fat f*cks get struck by lightning.

You dipsh*tz are spending millions on a virtually non-existent problem. Good fiscal responsibility there....

Let me get this straight. If your son or daughter are suspected of being gay, you should beat the gay out of them. Well Proffesor why not just hand them a loaded pistol and tell them to commit suicide.
I think I now have a better understanding of why YOU are not allowed to adopt children. Seek help you sick freak
Yes, beat homosexuality out of your kids -- it's the only way of saving their live.

It explains why homosexuality was never a problem before.

Shuttle diplomacy won't save them.

Gabriel Rotello touches on this.

In his book "The Ecology of Homosexuality" he writes how 450,000 gay youth would be alive today had we kept our sodomy laws.

The point is this: homosexuality is a destructive force -- it kills. It takes thousands of young men each year and turns them into male prostitutes. It puts other young men in penis suites and erect penis hats. And of course it infects tens of thousands of others with a killer virus.

Maybe if you told us some of the good homosexuality does, you'd have an argument.

I won't hold my breath.

It seems to me that there are "butch" and feminine lesbians, and there are also "butch and effeminate gay men. I knew twin brothers who were gay, and one was very refined and gentle, and one was rough and tough.

Oh my such anger! Did my honest answer hit a nerve or blow your theory? Ask a bunch of women why they dress the way they do, 9 out of 10 will tell you the same thing I did! Womens Lib, well yeah duh...welcome to this Century and half of the last one old fart - we don't need you anymore.

You say I am stereotyping women...WTF are you doing? Where is your proof that lesbians dress as men to attract women, source please? Rest assured I know much more about women than you do, I am a woman, remember??? Men can never figure us out! So how much, dear Kimare do you know about how and why women dress and why do you know such things? Oh yeah the lesbian in you...nevermind.

While you say you are a "redeemed cynic and a barbarian"...you quote the Bible frequently. Most likely a fundie! Ummmm you are not allowed to believe in evolution remember, that is evil? We all just came to be, the good book says so!

You are angry about the possibility of gay marriage because you spent your life trying to make your square peg fit...you now question your entire being. I am sorry for you!

I left my sensitivity at the door of denial, which is where gays make the perposterous claim that gay couples are 'exactly the same' as marriage AND as you brought up, horrifically transgres cultural and religious sensitivity.
Nice gay twirl for a straight, but silly stupid with no validation of course.
