The pair had one of these civil partnerships in 2005.

From: John P

One of the reasons gay people should be allowed to marry is that the anti-marriage crowd is so amazingly stupid. The following list was posted in an online gay debate and the anti-gay folks thought it was serious and started using it as "proof" that gay marriage is bad.


Why Gay People Shouldn't Get Married

1. Being gay is not natural. Real Americans always reject unnatural things like eyeglasses, polyester, and air conditioning.

2. Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.

3. Legalizing gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy behavior. People may even wish to marry their pets because a dog has legal standing and can sign a marriage contract.

4. Straight marriage has been around a long time and hasn't changed at all; women are still property, blacks still can't marry whites, and divorce is still illegal.

5. Straight marriage will be less meaningful if gay marriage were allowed; the sanctity of Britany Spears' 55-hour just-for-fun marriage would be destroyed.

6. Straight marriages are valid because they produce children. Gay couples, infertile couples, and old people shouldn't be allowed to marry because our orphanages aren't full yet, and the world needs more children.

7. Obviously gay parents will raise gay children, since straight parents only raise straight children.

8. Gay marriage is not supported by religion. In a theocracy like ours, the values of one religion are imposed on the entire country. That's why we have only one religion in America.

9. Children can never succeed without a male and a female role model at home. That's why we as a society expressly forbid single parents to raise children.

10. Gay marriage will change the foundation of society; we could never adapt to new social norms. Just like we haven't adapted to cars, the service-sector economy, or longer life spans.

Waste of effort really, nobody from either camp (sorry, but I had to use the term) is likely to be swayed either way.

It does, however, provide we cynics with some trifle of amusement.

The 'figures' make it clear that certain practices and promiscuious behavior require specific precautions. They also make it clear that monogamous bonding, as in legal marriage, very much reduces STDs.

Simply citing 'figures' does little to solve anything or suggest solutions unless you show how they are relevant.

{{Some people are gentetically disposed to be heavy, and there ARE ways to offset that problem with medications and diet.... but telling them "don't eat" is not one of the suggested solutions.}}

The figures make it clear, that a very small percentage of homosexuals want Marriage/monogamy(Scandanavian survey)
Those who do "marry", use it primarily for financial benefits/immigration/insurance etc....not to set up a family structure(the traditional definition of marriage).

The hiv figures for homosexuals are at least 44times worse for homos than heteroes If we take it that both demographics use around the same amount of "safe sex" precautions, the discrepancy must be put down to either extreme promiscuity among a large proportion of homos, or some other vector associated only with male/male sexual intercourse.

Are homos in general really 44 times more promiscuous than heteros?

Anyway, there is something very bad going on within homosexual practice, which means that we should not be promoting it as "safe and healthy" until the reasons for the huge percentages of premature deaths and disease, among especially young homosexuals, are determined.

I don't think "we" need to promote it at all, ake.

The big issue here is much easier to understand than the Bible's rather contradictory and confusing concepts. The Insurance Industry is against gay marriage, because it increases their exposure to family coverage and claims. But why should they make that the issue when there are plenty of morons with God Hates Queers stamped in their hearts who are more than willing to jump into the breach?

When I hear about the drug-abusing heterosexual parents who let their child get into the coke stash on their coffee table, or the drunken stepfather who beats a child to death for peeing on the couch, or the parents who leave their kids in cars in 110 degree temperatures while they do some quick shopping, I am quite satisfied that homosexual parents could be a good deal less dangerous and more responsible. I think the way you treat your mate and your offspring is much more important than whether you are a different or same sex couple,

Yes I would agree with that EJ, but with the homosexual marriage issue, we are forced to deal in generalities.
I would be in favour of removing chilren from heterosexual parents, who were unwilling or unable to amend destructive behaviour.

Many addicts in Scotland DO have their children removed when their addiction cannot be controlled.

"Promiscuity" is common among males who do NOT seek other males, also...

Human sexuality is not an 'either-or' thing.... it is a gradient.

I fear, ake, you are merely seeking statistics to support something you already believe. (yes, I'm sure you'll claim otherwise...but your history of posting certainly leads many to suspect that way.)

I'll not bother to try to refute you further, as I'm sure enough has been said on both side to make whatever points need making.

Re Elton being too old.

Ya know, any offspring or adopted children will be well off financially. And, they will have their parents around for a long time even if they die. It's called video recording.

By the same token, perhaps "young" people who do not have the financial means or intelligence to securely raise children should reconsider procreation or adoption?

Fuck that. I am almost 54. Like I said on the Hefner thread, if I had money, I would buy me some nice young pussy. And, if I won the lotto and had lotsa coin, she'd be squeezing out pups by the litter.

Well, erbert, I've actually been to a couple (all in a main-stream church, incidentally, performed by the regular, ordained pastor of the church--Lutheran, incidentally--where the idea was to sanctify and solemnize the union, whether state law recognizes it or not) and they were just as serious as any hetero wedding I've ever attended. Including my own (to a woman, incidentally, just in case you're wondering). And the people attending were just as serious and respectful as any wedding congregation.

Any other kind of behavior strikes me as simply adolescent.

"Any other kind of behavior strikes me as simply adolescent."

thank you, at my age I appreciate the compliment..

I grew up with Glam Rock as my earliest cultural normative conditioning.

When I was a cute slim wavy haired student I attracted more gay admirers
than I could share make up with.

I was adopted by gays as an honorary affiliate and taken to all student city gay clubs
in the hope they might convert me or at least be my pals.

I lived in an attic studio flat with no one else but gay mates for the final 2 years of my degree..

One of my best mates for over 30 years who I cuddle every time we meet
is well.. gay..


get the message.. chill..

camp gay humour dominates UK popular culture !!!!

so put on your cowboy hat, mount your big musculy stallion

and sing out loud and proud

"Does My Ring Burn Your Finger".. one of the best country songs ever..

the morning after eating a curry.. pffff.. adolescent sniggers galore...!!!

Little Hawk, anyone who worries about anyone else's sexual choices has the capacity -- and the right, if you let them -- to worry about yours. Once they cross the line, it's hard to tell how far across they are willing to go. In case you're not catching the subtext, I'm talking about your support of the anti-gay sentiments of Akenaton and GfS. Whether you like it or not, they believe they have the right to dictate your sexual choices to you. And you have given them that right. In a very real sense, by supporting people who want to tell other people who to sleep with, you are complicit in dictating other people's sexual choices. Your great "hands off" philosophy backfires and becomes "hands on" when it lets the evil ones get away with their evil.

Let me see if I understand this. Two human beings find love together, want to join their lives together legally, and then, being unable to produce offspring, wish to adopt a child whom they will raise in a loving, intelligent, communicative environment.

And someone thinks this is a disgusting, perverted, unnatural, filthy, despicable thing.

But by contrast, a lump of a man and a harridan of a woman get pregnant while drunk one night, marry up to save the disgrace, and raise a child in boozy poverty and emotional and physical abuse, producing a confused, neurotic and anti-social git of a young man. This is however deemed (I presume) as "normal life".

I think I have just seen a disgusting, perverted, unnatural, filthy, despicable thing, but not the one of the first example.

I happen to like GfS and Akenaton as people, that's all, so I have a general sort of respect for them and see no reason to demonize them on this forum, although I may not agree with EVERY single thing either one of them might say. As for wrangles about gay rights, homosexuality, etc....I consider it a total non-issue, I am utterly disinterested in it, and I find it so completely boring listening to people go on and on about it expressing their outrage....whatever side of the issue they happen to be on...that I start feeling like I may fall asleep at the keyboard at any moment.

I simply don't give a damn about it either way, because it's not my business who other people want to have sex with nor is it anyone else's business, in my opinion. That was my point in my last post. I'm not interested in the subject. It bores me. I think that the present day media and politicians are using this particular issue to play "divide and conquer" games and get votes. I think it's a farce, a manipulative political football that is being tossed around by cynical politicians for their own gain, a pitiful waste of people's time, energy, and attention, and that you would all be much better off not worrying about it and focusing on something else instead....

I don't CARE about gays, I don't mind gays, they don't worry me in the least, and their lifestyle has no effect on me whatsoever, nor would I expect it to.

"As for wrangles about gay rights, homosexuality, etc....I consider it a total non-issue, I am utterly disinterested in it…."

Shortly after midnight on October 7th of 1998, a twenty-one year old Matthew Shepard, a student at the University of Wyoming, was taken to a deserted country road outside of Laramie, where he was tied to a fence, brutally beaten, tortured, and pistol-whipped. The two assailants left him to die, still tied to the fence.

Shepard was discovered 18 hours later by a cyclist, Aaron Kreifels, who initially mistook Shepard for a scarecrow. Shepard was in a coma.

Shepard had suffered fractures to the back of his head and in front of his right ear. He experienced severe brain-stem damage, which affected his body's ability to regulate heart rate, body temperature, and other vital functions. There were also about a dozen small lacerations around his head, face, and neck. His injuries were deemed too severe for doctors to operate. Shepard never regained consciousness and remained on full life support. While he lay in intensive care, candlelight vigils were held by the people of Laramie.

Shepard was pronounced dead at 12:53 a.m. on October 12, 1998, at Poudre Valley Hospital, in Fort Collins, Colorado.

Police arrested Aaron McKinney and Russell Henderson shortly thereafter, finding the bloody gun and Shepard's shoes and wallet in their truck.

The reason they gave for their brutal assault on Matthew Shepard?

"He was gay."

The sort of anti-gay propaganda and blatant misinformation that certain people on this and other threads are wont to spread ("Gays choose to be gay," and "Gays cause disease.") gives people like McKinney and Henderson a convenient excuse for their bigotry and brutality.

"….a total non-issue…."

I don't think so!

""The figures make it clear, that a very small percentage of homosexuals want Marriage/monogamy(Scandanavian survey)
Those who do "marry", use it primarily for financial benefits/immigration/insurance etc....not to set up a family structure(the traditional definition of marriage).
""

The lengths it will go to to in an attempt to support the above specious bollocks.

Careful selection of survey data from atypical sources will work equally well to either prove or disprove any argument.

A Scand(i)navian survey and an African survey would be diametrically opposed in just about every particular, and neither would bear any relation to the UK or USA situation.

If that's the best argument you can manage, STFU until you have something realistic.

The point at issue still hasn't penetrated that adamantine skull. The argument isn't about how many want to marry, it's about those who do having the right to do so without having to ask bigotted outsiders' permission.

You are perfectly safe, and totally unaffected, as long as you don't indulge.

I'm not saying it was a non-issue for him, Don.

I'm saying that gay rights issues are not a subject that gets me all worked up or that I feel any need to fight over with other people (as some of you here apparently do...both on the pro and con side of the issue). It just doesn't push my buttons. Period. It is not something that haunts my particular political anxiety closet.

I feel empathy for any human being who gets beaten up and tortured for who they are, but I have no particular ax to grind in regards to the specific matter of gay rights issues, I'm basically uninterested in those issues, it doesn't push my emotional buttons, and that's all there is to it.

I'll leave it to those of you who emotionally obsessed with this particular issue to accuse each other of every horrible, ugly thing you can dredge up out of your personal well of angst, outrage, and resentment, because it draws nothing but a big "yawn" from me. You're like a bunch of rabid dogs fighting in a pit. The fact that I don't wish to jump in that pit with you and participate does not in any way indicate my lack of regard for the unfortunate sufferings of someone like Matthew Shepard.

Anyone who denies that there are serious health issues associated with homosexual practice is a fool.

Anyone who portays themselves as "a heterosexual, homosexual, activist"(a promoter of homosexual practice for others), is a dangerous, uncaring, fool.

I use the word "portrays" advisedly.


My stance on this issue(and I speak for no other),is based upon the fact that I find the figures for death and disease amongst homosexuals intolerable in a "caring" society. The "liberal" ideology which is in vogue at present, is bent upon showing homosexuality as perfectly normal and perfectly safe, so long as participants observe certain rules.....these rules are unsafe, as nobody appears to understand, or even be prepared to discuss the reasons for the huge difference in infection rates in homosexuals and heterosexuals, neither do they take into account that despite all the education and money thrown at the aids/homosexual link, a large majority of homosexuals continue to behave in a very dangerous manner( cite CDC figures for numbers of sexual partners, frequency of anal sex etc)

In the AIDS epidemic infection rates are falling in all demographics except homosexuals, because of the deafening silence about this issue.

This "liberal" ideology is to blame for the silence and lack of action, which has resulted in homosexuals counting worst affected by aids and other STD's in the US and UK. It can be seen in action in all these threads.

All posts attempting to undermine my argument by making asinine comments on your view of my sexuality, will be ignored....Grow up!

There is a specific reason that I sometimes post to these threads, Don.

That reason is that I think the politicians and demagogues in the current political era are cynically using various gender-based issues deliberately to sow division and controversy among the electorate. THAT is the one aspect of the situation that genuinely concerns me.

I couldn't care less who is "gay" and who isn't. That simply doesn't matter. What difference could it make? What I care about is how the mass media and the politicians are exploiting and sensationlizing the gay rights issue for their own gain. They are using it to manipulate people and to get attention and sell air time. They are posturing in various insincere ways, grandstanding, and stirring up outrage on both sides in order to empower themselves, and people are falling for it.

THAT is why I comment on the issue. I think you people who are endlessly fighting over gay rights here, both lots of you on both sides of the issue, have fallen right into the trap that the mass media and the politicians set for you. That is why I come onto these threads and say what I do.

Gay lifestyles are a complete non-issue to me. I....don't...care. However, the way the mass media and the politicians are pandering to spinning outrage OVER gay rights issues, is NOT a non-issue to me! That's what concerns me.

It is not a pretence, Don. I am 100% serious. You're playing out the comfy, familiar "liberal" role that makes you feel most holy and righteous (as an anti-anti-gay crusader), and you've been cleverly led into it by the politicans and the mass media...solely for THEIR gain, not for yours.

You are entirely in error in imagining that only people who think the way you do and talk the way you do and get outraged the way you do care about what happens to someone like Matthew Shepard.

The people who beat up and tortured Matthew were similarly led into it, and they felt similarly holy and righteous doing what they did...in service to the complete opposite line of insane, exaggerated rhetoric. They may have heard some horrible, inflammatory story about what some gay man supposedly did to a child or something along that line.

And that's what I object to: the hysterical, ridiculous, self-righteous, self-serving, self-justifying "victim" rhetoric on both sides of the issue and the ridiculous amount of media overkill that has been invested in raising 2 sets of holy warriors to do pointless battle with one another over something really trivial (gay sex) that's been happening anyway in human society for thousands of years!

It's a sad, sad case of the media and politicians driving the agenda, the tail wagging the dog, and people falling for it hook, line, and sinker...and hating each other over their exaggerated and false assumptions about what the other ones are thinking and believing.

Look at yourself, Don. You're positively panting to find some way to prove that I am a secret homophobe, when the subject of homosexuality in itself simply bores me and strikes me as a tempest in a teapot, something that just doesn't matter. You're searching diligently like an investigator for the Spanish Inquisition, hoping to find that one damning bit of pyschological evidence, that one stray word, that will prove that I am homophobic just because you want me to be in order to serve your need to prove I'm wrong. It's farcical. I'm about as worried over gay men as I am over gay hamsters, meaning not at all...and I actually find gay women rather appealing, provided they're not too ugly.

One can search statistics from all over the world to find figures that might support what one wants to believe, and if one is sufficiently motivated, by careful selection and with a little fine-tuning, and if one expresses the figures with the proper twist, one can "prove" just about anything one wants to.

"There are lies, damned lies—and statistics!"
                                             —Mark Twain

In an effort to check Ake's contention that gays in Scandinavian countries don't want to get married, all I was able to find were articles about how marriage itself is declining, and an increasing number of Scandinavians—heterosexual as well as homosexual—are opting for simply living together "without benefit of clergy."

So—apparently not necessarily wanting to get married is not unique to homosexuals. Nor do homosexuals in the Scandinavian countries necessarily reflect the wishes of all homosexuals. Singling Scandinavian homosexual men out and implying that being marriage-shy applies only to them, and claiming that this applies to homosexuals all over the world is. . . .

Well, what would you call it?

In the United States, however, there is a strong movement on the part of homosexuals, both gay and lesbian, to legalize same sex marriage.

Actually I think gays SHOULD get married.

1. If they marry they won't run around acting all campy and trying to impress others.

2. If they marry they won't risk exposure to disease or infecting anyone outside their marriage.

3. If they marrythey will create a stable environment in which children who lack a stable home can be safely adopted without fear of their being exposed to male-female relationships.

4. If they marry they will no longer have a legal excuse to act like an oppressed minority deprived of their civil rights by bigotry.

ALl these things would improve the general social situation and should be grounds for passing a contitutional amendment that the civil rights of marriage may not be denied to anyone on the basis of sexiual orientation.

But whatever I thought of that orientation would not alter my implacable opposition to any discrimination based upon it.

That is what is being deliberately pushed aside by that small minority. The issue here is a human being's right to all the freedoms which are available to his fellow humans.

Those who are opposed to Gay marriage are at no risk from it whatsoever, and those Gay men and women who wish to marry are reducing risk to the Gay community.

The argument that it diminishes hetero marriage is so puerile as to need no discussion.

Yes, people are influenced by the people they hang around with. And the problem is??? What, do you think being gay is contagious? Do you know anyone who is going to suddenly decide to be gay?

I hang around with musicians and get musical influences. I hang around with women and get feminine influences. I hang around with manly men and get the occasional home repair tip. I hang around with gay people and get . . . wait, they're just people. If they are musicians I get musical influences, if they know how to fix a car they give me advice, etc.

Getting married is one thing, getting kids handed to them doesn't seem right. Take Elton John and his buddy. When that baby graduates, one of those old bitches is going to be coughing up Benefiber balls in the audience and the other is going to be bothering everyone with his geriatric farts!

Wow, you actually know Elton John and his partner? Are they really both bitches? Or are you just using derogatory language because the objects of your derision are gay? In the spirit of taking your own medicine, does your calling people you don't know names mean that we can refer to you from now on as "that slimy bastard"?

The only REASONS you gave for not liking their adoption of a child is centered on their age. Are you equally against hetero folks having the right to adopt if they are past a certain age?

Anyone who cites the unusually high rate of HIV in homosexuals as the true reason they should not get married must also oppose heterosexual marriage in sub-Saharan Africa, where the rates of HIV for all people are similarly high.

All of Akenaton's illogic has been exposed literally hundreds of times. It doesn't seem to slow him down a bit. Since most of us have seen him being an intelligent and articulate man, capable of deep and insightful thought, his crusade to keep homosexuals from being allowed to be normal citizens is very fishy.

You're playing out the comfy, familiar "liberal" role that makes you feel most holy and righteous (as an anti-anti-gay crusader), and you've been cleverly led into it by the politicans and the mass media...solely for THEIR gain, not for yours.

It's a sad, sad case of the media and politicians driving the agenda, the tail wagging the dog, and people falling for it hook, line, and sinker...


Little Hawk, if you try really, really hard you might be able to be a little bit more of jerk. But you'd have to try really hard . . . What you are doing here is saying that everyone but you is a sheep being led around by the nose, without bothering to actually think about any issues. In other words, we're all stupid. Do you really expect to get away with that sort of asinine conversational technique? Do you really think you are very good at looking inside other people's heads? (you're not, by the way). Do you really think it's appropriate or beneficial to respond to individuals as if they were all the same type of stupid?

Just for the record, I am outraged by the legally imposed prejudice against gay people because I have lots of gay friends who are being discriminated against. I am outraged that the Bible is being used to spread hate. I'm outraged that people who find homosexuality icky are being allowed to turn their ick factor into laws. I don't pay much attention to anyone telling me what I ought to think -- I don't really listen to or read whatever liberal media and politicians are supposedly controlling my mind. If you don't like my outrage, can you tell me if the American South would have desegregated without a lot of outraged people? Would apartheid still exist if we hadn't gotten outraged about that? It was our outrage, in part, that ended the Viet Nam war. Sometimes, for important issues, it is necessary.

Here's a question for you: If you were at a coffee shop and fell into conversation with someone who was expressing extreme bigotry against blacks, would you tell them they were out of line, or would you tell them that the liberal press was the only reason they had to put up with all the anti-racist rhetoric?

Governor Signs Bills Eliminating Discriminatory Code, Legal Barriers for Same-Sex Couples

Sacramento Ð Yesterday, Governor Schwarzenegger signed into law two Equality California sponsored bills. The first bill, AB 2199, repeals a discriminatory section of the California Welfare Institutions code targeting lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. The second bill, AB 2700, eliminates legal barriers for same-sex couples wishing to dissolve their domestic partnership and civil marriage simultaneously by creating a consolidated form and procedure.

ÒWe are grateful that our governor has decided to stand with us on the issue of repealing deeply offensive and blatantly false language from state law suggesting that gays and lesbians can and should be cured, as well as eliminating hurdles for same-sex couples seeking legal separation,Ó said Geoff Kors, executive director of Equality California. ÒAs the most populous state in the nation, California sends a palpable message with these new pieces of legislation with respect to LGBT equality. These two bills bring us closer to accomplishing our mission to achieve full equality for all LGBT Californians.Ó

AB 2199 calls for the repeal of a section of the California Welfare and Institutions code that instructs the State Department of Mental Health to conduct research into the Òcauses and cures of homosexuality,Ó with the implication that lesbian, gay, and bisexual Californians are sexual deviants, potential sex offenders and a threat to children. The code, which was originally authored in the 1950s, implies that lesbian, gay, and bisexual individuals can and should be cured, in direct contradiction with an enormous body of research that demonstrates otherwise. The bill was sponsored by Equality California and was introduced by Assemblymember Bonnie Lowenthal (D-Long Beach).

ÒThe witch hunt is now officially over,Ó said Assemblymember Bonnie Lowenthal.

The governor also signed the Separation Equity Act, or AB 2700, which will amend the state's family code, allowing for couples who first registered as domestic partners and who legally married thereafter to dissolve both contracts through a single, uniform procedure. The current system forces couples to go through a separate process for each, which can take an extra one to two years for each case to be resolved and unnecessarily burdens the judicial system. The bill also clarifies that same-sex couples who married outside of California and who have all the rights and responsibilities of marriage, may dissolve those out-of-state marriages in California. The bill was co-sponsored by Equality California and the Conference of California Bar Associations and introduced Assemblymember Fiona Ma (D-San Francisco).

ÒThe elimination of legal separation barriers for same-sex couples brings us one step closer to marriage equality,Ó said Assemblywoman Fiona Ma. ÒWith AB 2700 signed into law we are recognizing that all marriage should be treated alike, even when it comes to dissolving them.Ó

The examples of unfairness are countless.

As Hawk says, homosexual marriage has become a political issue....In fact The "gay marriage" threads were started by Amos, in a bid to boost Democrat votes in one of the past elections.
I object to homosexuality being promoted by the media and as a "liberal" tool, while it is so obviously dangerous to those who practice it.

I know a young woman who was raised by two gay men. She's married, to a very nice young man and seems stable enough. Her one quirk is that she won't give her cat catnip because it's a drug.

I have a friend with three ex wives. If he wants to take on a fourth nobody is going to stop him, though somebody should. If he can get married why shouldn't two gays.

My chief problem with gay marriage is that I go to a church with a beautiful building and a very inclusive congregation. If Pennsylvania ever legalizes gay marriage every drag queen in town who wants a big church wedding will join that congregation, and I will choke every Sunday trying not to laugh. Not to mention the very unChristian thoughts I will have about men who look better than I do in a nice little print dress!

Homosexual "marriage",is in my opinion simply a tool to normalise a practice which is dangerous and unhealthy.

Come,come Amos....You're a big enough man to take a little roughing up!

I dont think I made the comparison that you cite, but the Scandinavian study on Homosexual marriage and civil union,
definitly stated that the numbers of extramarital partners was much larger in homosexual unions than in hetero unions.

These marriages/unions also lasted for a much shorter space of time in the homosexuals than in heterosexuals
These points led to the conclusion, that most homosexual marriages/unions were of convenience, that is, to facilitate the obtaining of benefits, immigration "rights",insurance etc, rather than to form a monogamous bond or set up a family structure.

Ake's answers did not stand up to scrutiny in any of the other threads.

He provided evidence which showed that, in europe and America, homosexuals suffer HIV and AIDS disproportonately compared to any other demographic.

From that he drew a whole range of unconnected conclusions concerning lifestyle and promiscuity to name but two.

He deliberately ignored the rest of the evidence that refuted his conclusions.

His arguments remain as weak and facile as his opinions are dogmatic and unsupported.

His fascination with this subject remains a matter of concern.

Just one more general note:

I am amused and just a bit disgusted by the abysmal ignorance of those on this and other threads who use the word "liberal" as a pejorative—an insult. Those who do so have undoubtedly never heard of John Locke (1634—1704), haven't a clue as to what liberalism is all about, and wouldn't know a liberal if he bit them on the ass.

My mother always told me never to use a word if I didn't know what it meant.

Also, I am amused and disgusted by those who, when a point they are trying to make is totally refuted, can only resort to insults and abuse. Intellectually bankrupt and graphically demonstrating it.

All you have is "Boo Hoo it isn't fair"....you cant even define what is fair and what is unfair in this society,and there are numerous examples! Some relating to drug addiction, some to unhealthy behaviour, some relating to people with psychiatric problems.

In my experience it's not the ones who are overtly gay that you need to be careful of or feared about, but the overtly 'un-gay'! Those who are secure in their own sexualities seldom kick up much fuss about others who have a different orientation. Just an observation though

The novelist Ian Fleming once stated (I don't know if it was in a James Bond book though) that gay men cannot whistle.

Whilst trying to work that one out, it occurred to me that there is an equally absurd outrageous comment doing the rounds,

Why gays should not marry.

I went to a civil partnership celebration a couple of years ago, (both grooms refused to call it a wedding till the law catches up with the law,) and had a bloody good time. Mothers crying, risqué best man speech, the full monty. As some of the congregation were bell ringers, they had arranged a quarter peel at the cathedral that afternoon. Sadly, they didn't tell the Dean the matter of the occasion. After all, the old bigot might not have allowed it, despite one of the grooms being a regular ringer there.

So sad, so wrong, so out of step with the rest of the world and as ever, so damned hypocritical.
