I have no problems with (and actually support) equal rights across the board but the pseudo intellectual crap in this list is not helping.
People running around saying because A = B then A must = C shows a complete lack of forethought in any argument. Like using anything Kardashian (even acknowledging those f'ing animals) as an example.
Picking out the worse in a situation to support your opinion makes you look foolish.
The people behind these attempts just need to state facts. If you don't support equal rights for not only gays but all mankind then you are a fag.

This is a pretty in your face attempt to normalize bum fudgek1ng isn't it? That's what being gay is about right? Sticking your d1ck into another man's a55hole? Sounds lovely...

"all of these are written in an obnoxious and annoying manner. #10 is especially terrible, do an statistical survey of adults raised in single parent vs raised in a home with a mother and father. report back high school graduation rates, college graduation rates, criminal activity rates, income, and almost every other success/failure rate you can think of. many studies have been done in fact, all evidence points to both parents present equip the child best for success."

Apparently you didn't understand what they were trying to say. They weren't saying that one would have better statistical odds with a traditional family, they were saying that single parenting, which is non traditional, has full rights when it comes to raising children. Why are you trying to poke holes in logic they weren't using? Are you really that bothered by this poster, or are you just trying to argue?

It's not just a civil rights issue either it's a free speech issue too. Since the state doesn't have any compelling interest to certify (or even ban for that matter) such arrangements, the state should just treat them like private contracts. That way, no matter how much the right will complain, their voice won't matter.

Seriously stop giving tax advantages to people who are married.

It's not a stock screed, it's simply the best way to describe my point. [..] I replied directly to every issue you raised, if you feel "defamed" by that that's just bizarre.


You replied with some irrelevant text that would have been relevant to someone who had said that homosexuals were subhuman.

Either you intended to try to get other people to think I'd said that, which would be defamation, or you were just posting a snippet from a stock screed without consideration of whether it was relevant or not.

Either way, your claim to have replied directly to every issue I raised is ridiculous.

Eddy666: ""So when did you choose to be straight?" Whenever I decided that I liked the idea of having sex with women? I don't really see what your argument is supposed to be. It's like saying, "so when did you decide to like action movies".

I knew which gender i was attracted to waaaay before I formed a preference for movie genres. You just confirmed what progressives already knew about you people.

Don't blame me for my opponent's equivocation. And if you can't take a little language now and again then you should really invest in some smelling salts, have your seconds periodically revive you when it all becomes simply too much.

Angie you're another one who likes to s3it all over the chess board when you're losing. Get a new repertoire sweety.


You replied with what may as well have been a copied segment from a political pamphlet. It had no relevance to my post unless you were deliberately trying to defame me.

You're accusing me of being the pigeon who craps on the board when I'm losing? Take a look at what you're doing.

When you have no counter-argument, you reply to people who disagree with you by stock screeds, misrepresentation of them and insults, then you claim victory.

That sounds to me like crapping on the board when you're losing.

"People are stupid. A baby is a clean slate, born with no distinct behaviors. They normally grow up to act somewhat like their parents, family, and friends. If your family is homosexual there is a good chance you will be too."


That would be a good point if it was true, but there's no evidence that it is.

There's the *appearance* of a bit larger chance of a person being homosexual if their family is fine with homosexuality and some close family and friends are homosexual. That's plausibly explained by people who are homosexual being more likely to say so sooner in those circumstances, rather than by people being more likely to be homosexual in those circumstances.

Oh, and babies aren't entirely a clean slate. For example, people tend to favour one hand pretty much straight away.

Sexual orientation is very much like handedness, only much less important.

Celebrating who you are when society at large has told you you're worth nothing at all, is not a bad thing. It is a reclamation of humanity and worth from those who would deny it to you.

It is not viewing yourself as the Ur human who is superior to everybody else and it is not slamming those who do not share the same characteristics.



True, but irrelevant to my post that you appeared to have written it in reply to.

you could had been raised exactly the same as your straight brother, something happened along the way u DECIDED to rebel...its a choice....


Bollocks.

I DECIDED to rebel in some of the usual ways when I was an adolescent, like most people do. Which hindsight shows to be not rebelling at all, really - how can it be when it's normal at that age?

Rebellion wasn't the motive for me being bisexual. I did the rebellion thing, so I can tell the difference.

There wasn't a motive for me being bisexual because I didn't choose to be. It's that clear-cut.

I'm right-handed. Why? Don't know - I didn't choose.

I like the taste of apples. I don't like the taste of pears. Why? Don't know - I didn't choose.

I'm bisexual. Why? Don't know - I didn't choose.

There are many things about people that they didn't choose.

Remember those who had maligned those marginalized already had an exclusive club that *did* claim superior status to the marginalized by excluding them and their stories and contributions, and sometimes their very existence itself, It's called history.

I've never thought of the parade as a way to convince anyone of anything. I would agree that it does the opposite. I've always seen the parade (I go to) as a celebration within the community and with the friend and family. Kind of a 'I'm not alone' type of thing. I see it as a celebration and one fabulous party.


If it wasn't about group pride, you could have a point.

But it is. Very explicitly.

I view gay pride in the same way that I view white pride, black pride, NO GODDAMN QUEERS HERE! pride or any other ideology and events set up solely for the purpose of celebrating and advocating the idea that people should be proud of being in the right group when they did nothing at all to get into that group, that people should be proud of not being one of the "others" (who are obviously inferior because if they weren't inferior then you wouldn't have any reason to be proud of not being them).

That's ugly poo.

Okay so let's try this one rationally for a change here. Anyone who doesn't agree based on religious principles, that's fine. Your problem, not mine. End of Story.

States that want to keep gays and lesbians from marrying is completely unfair to straight people who want to marry. Can someone tell me why, as a straight man, should I have to give up half my belongings, things I worked day in and out for to someone because the relationship fell apart? Can anyone tell me why as a straight man my credit rating should also suffer? Can anyone tell me why I should shell out for Alimony, Attorney's Fees, Court Costs for a proper divorce and THEN keep paying through the nose just to get myself back to zero simply because the relationship soured? Gays and Lesbians are completely free of that. A gay or lesbian relationship could sour and they could work it out between themselves. Legally that's preferential treatment.

"Arguing with religious nutcases is like playing chess with pigeons, their goal is to crap all over the board when they're losing and declare victory."

*Slightly modified from the original quote, but a fine substitution If I do say so myself.
