I might have expected such a response from a self loathing tired old carp like you. How dare you. How dare you tear down another gay person, you dolt? Don't you realize you are handing OUR haters ammunition on a silver platter by that kind of talk? What's WRONG with you?

Or, do you LIKE the Uncle Tom praise you get from the haters who like your self loathing remarks? They do NOT like you, they just like your pathetic whipped dog roll-overs and showing your vulnerable gut for their approval. If they had the means, you would be locked away just like the rest of us, tool.

I've noticed, and it's damn disturbing: They "like" people like him to the extent that he parrots their beliefs.

Ya know, I'll be personal for a sec in a way I rarely am here: This stuff is saddening me recently. And noticing what you said here -- I noticed it myself, last week -- made me quite sad. Having noticed these things about the antigay long ago, I found it no surprise: They become fakely, provisionally "friendly" so long as one parrots their beliefs *with exactitude*, as evidenced (I see this as related) by the way in which some of the antigay here are going so far as to call the *government itself* full of gays now, etc. In other words, this is a deep-seated hatred that was programmed in an almost cultlike way, and is perpetuated in much the same context. You are either *exactly* with them, or you = the enemy (in their eyes).

They really, really, really ****ing hate gay people, and it's astonishing and has no precedent I have ever seen (not even in racism), except from what I've heard about Nazism. Boy oh boy, it's impossible to see them as entirely sane or sensible.

I do wish Shep would come out of the closet, but of course he'd be fired from Fox. The good news is he could always switch over to CNN or MSNBC.

I am not sure how old you are, but I am in my early 60's, alas. I have lived through a lot of changes, some good, some not so good. I am finding THIS particular time more sad and angry than any other. When I was a younger guy, in the early 70's David Bowie was all hot and exciting, glamor rock was IN, gay was suddenly intriguing, the bars and clubs were ROCKING. I thought "how lucky I am to be coming out at THIS accepting time!" Even through maybe 1979 or so, it was cool that way, the Village People were NUMBER one and everyone knew all about them and who they were.

Suddenly, in 1980, Reagan discovered the fundies, they may be annoying, but as a block they DO get out and vote. Now it's all "family values" all the time. In my day, it was sex, drugs, rock and roll, and I mean EVERYONE. Parents would put their kids to bed and light up, then. I can't say that was good form, but what HAPPENED to those people? They are all tea bagger age now I assume and have left the fun old days long ago. They all became tight asses sometime in 1982 or so. The genie was let out and he ain't going back in his bottle any time soon.

Now the repubs suck up to the fundies as if they are drowning and the fundies have the only life preserver. I note the anti gay rhetoric is at new and terrible heights, more so than 40 years ago. In those days NO one spoke like these folks do. No one. I never thought it would come to this.

Yeah, the "family values" thing is like a mantra. Well, you can tell it's a mantra: Aren't mantras often lies?(Or perhaps I should ask, how often are they lies?) The "family values" people are like Nazis: Only ONE FAMILIAL ARRANGEMENT is acceptable, with exact and specific genders in specific spots.

That's why I call them Nazis; I call that the "Aryan family model." It's literally what they do: reject all other models; only one is "acceptable." What more does anyone need to remind them of Nazis thought processes? NOT the violence or the murder, but simply the thought process, that's what I am pointing out.

Honestly, it's why people like Lady Gaga are needed: She doesn't care. She keeps being outrageous. She refuses to bow down and away while she incurs outrage. I have become accepting of lots of "lowest common denominators" because they make the ultraconservatives screeeeeeam bloody murder and I think that that is so badly needed.

Curtese, What happened to the rockers, druggers, parents who would put the kids to bed then light up? They grew up and became responsible adults. You wonder why anti-gay rhetoric is at a new height? Blame it on an unwilling population having gay this and gay that shoved down our throats day in and day out. Blame it on the gays moving into the schools and indoctrinating kids. Blame it on a gay stunts like those billboards showing politicians in same-gender sexual situations. Blame it on the attack on marriage and the nation-wide effort to rewrite the definition of marriage. Gays should have quit with equal employment, the military, and equal housing. The attack on marriage is way over the line. We're wide awake, working hard, and mad as hell. Get used to it. You guys started a war, the culture war, if you will. And all we're doing is defending ourselves and our way of life. If you gays can't handle the rhetoric, then you shouldn't have started the war in the first place. What did you expect? That we would all just bow out of society and say, "Oh whatever you want, gay ones. We've just been wrong for all of time. Thank goodness, gays came out of the closet to enlighten us." How could be so delusional?

We aren't taking crumbs from your table anymore. DEAL with it. No more closets, no hiding, no pretending. We are full citizens of this country and we have a right to equal protection under the law and a full seat at the table.

Indoctrinating kids? Nope, just teaching them to tolerate those who are different, and not just us. Some of those kids, btw, are gay, or have gay parents or relatives. There is no place in our schools for prejudice.

We aren't changing the definition of marriage; we are only broadening access to the SAME laws.

Handle the rhetoric? We've BEEN handling it for decades; it's you and your bigoted comrades who are getting hysterical. Times change. Gays no longer isolate themselv3es from society; we are a PART of society. We are in the halls of power, in the churches and synagogues, in businesses, in schools, etc. And we are staying there. You can adjust to reality or not, but WE aren't backpeddling just to make you feel better about yourself.

How tolerant are you of those who believe homosexual behavior is immoral, deviant and perverted? People like you who scream about tolerance are always the most intolerant of all.

Look, enganging in homosexual behavior is a conscious choice that you've chosen. Along with your choice comes the disdain of society. If you don't like it, make better choices.

Stop being a crybaby.

Guess the Jews shoulda been tolerant of the Nazis in Germany, huh.

Let me guess that if I sat here and told you *your post here* is completely lacking in a moral compass and that you sound like a sociopathic rapist, you'd ignore my opinion.

This will give you a little clue as to why the gay and the pro-gay aren't interested in your assessment of them. Would you take advice from someone who sounds like rapist filth? You give others no reason to behave politely toward you at all.

This is the real kicker: Yeah, gay people are *ignoring the gender they're attracted to* just to get with their own gender, whom they're not attracted to, in order to annoy YOU. Yeah, I'm really buying that. All around them is the opposite gender to whom they're attracted to, according to your logic, but they're CHOOSING to be with a gender they're not attracted to, according to your logic.
guest wrote:

So why is my disdain directed at you?

Oh, that's right: It's actually the antigay who are attempting to force their opinions down others' throats, like you're doing here.

Congrats on being Exhibit A.

Give deviants an inch and they'll take a mile. American society has every right to make certain human behaviors illegal. Since homosexuals have distorted and disadvantaged any and all compassions and latitude they've been given, their behavior should be made illegal once again. Otherwise, they will continue to destroy society at every level. It is the nature of destroyers to continue destroying.

Nope. But homosexuals arenít being slaughtered by the millions. They arenít being slaughtered by the thousands, nor the hundreds nor even the tens. Your pitiful attempt at an analogy is an epic fail.

ROFLMAO! Someone who consistently engages in immoral, deviant behavior is going to give a lecture on anotherís moral compass??? Youíre joking, right?

Yeah, Iíll ignore your opinion of me as quickly as rejecting advice from a rapist. Youíre both guilty of committing sexual immorality.
Yeah, gay people are *ignoring the gender they're attracted to* just to get with their own gender, whom they're not attracted to, in order to annoy YOU.
I said that engaging in homosexual behavior is a conscious choice. Thatís a fact.
So why is my disdain directed at you?
Because I state facts and you donít like them.
It's actually the antigay who are attempting to force their opinions down others' throats, like you're doing here.
Iím not stating opinion, Iím stating fact. You want society to accept and condone your immoral, deviant behavior, but that isnít going to happen. When it doesnít, it pisses you off. I say, too damn bad, you brought it upon yourself.

Why do people say that it is so horrible that gay men have anal sex yet nowadays all straight men talk about is they want to have anal sex? Are they actually gay? Is our society going the way of Rome when it was collapsing that anything goes, all people think about is eating too much and having sex cause they are lazy? What's really going on?

How come over 50 percent of straights get divorced if straight marriage is the way to live? How come over 50 percent of kids today are being born to single mothers? Doesn't that tell you people no longer do the nuclear family? How about the reality that there are way too many people now so of course humanity would need to stop procreating and it would need to focus on cleaning up the environment we have destroyed by there being way too many of us. How about rather than risking having children with autism because of all the pollution from overpopulation why don't people adopt the kids in foster care that are already here and need families if people love children so much and have such great morals and values??

The reality is marriage is over with out of necessity, due to overpopulation. Humans need to move on and stop trying to have nuclear families because there's too many people. Otherwise what will happen is soon the divorce rate will be 75 percent, a total failure, and more and more kids will be autistic. So people will stop getting married out of fear of divorce and out of fear of having children because the odds of their children being unable to function will be too high. See the evolution that is occuring due to overpopulation?

As far as gay people, how many of you have a gay relative? Probably all of you. I have a gay brother, a straight brother, a straight sister and I'm straight. So why is my brother gay? Who knows. My grandparents raised us, they were Republicans and yet they were fine that my brother was gay. So he is gay. No one knows why he was born gay. So people want to act like they are evil or something. I bet most all of you have a gay relative. Do you want them to be harmed? No, no you don't.
