LeTrole eases himself slowly from his side of the bed, bits of oreos and doritos falling off the hairs of his ponderous belly as he pushes himself to a vertical position. He does not want to get up yet, but the rumblings from his lower intestine will not be denied. The other side of his bed is unoccupied- ever since his wife had sprung a leak in 2008 he has not had the heart to replace her.
On the toilet he attends to his physical needs while coughing up great chunks of brownish phlegm. Absentmindedly he scratches his chest. Stray particles of cheetos fall to the floor along with flakes of dead skin and scabs.
He wants to go back to bed, but stops by the computer desk. Something is nagging at him, telling him there may be a new opportunity here. Before sitting he notes a new brown stain on the threadbare chair. He frowns- that's what he needed to buy-toilet paper. That must wait.
Dropping into the chairs moist and familiar confines, LeTrole feels anticipation rising. Opening his favourite website he thinks he spots- yes, definitely! Scratching feverishly with his left hand at the scabs on his lower belly, he scrolls down to find two threads involving homosexuality and one about bisexuality in penguins.
Now, opening his Wordpad, he feverishly begins copying-pasting. Over and over again. His breathing speeds up along with his pulse. The jagged nails on his left hand peel scabs away, drawing blood. He does not notice.
The days work has begun...

Amos Quito: RicosRoughnecks: I work with a dude from Uganda, he smells like cat piss. It grosses everybody out. Although he doesn't flinch at the big openly gay co-worker we have. After watching the eat da poo poo video I expected him to be anti gay but nope.

/maybe he's gay...


He could also be a witch.

Have you considered whether he may be a witch?

Because he could be a witch.


He's a GAY witch!

GreenSun: By the way, why is hatred for gay people called "homophobia"? Doesn't phobia mean fear? I don't think these people who hate gays fear them, they're just hateful asswipes.


I think the term "homophobia" is a misnomer, as it means "same fear" or "fear of men". Being strictly objective, even the mangled definition isn't applicable to my beliefs, since I also take a dim view of heterosexuals who base their whole lives around anonymous sexual encounters whilst ending up with various physical ailments as a result of their chosen behaviour. If you accuse me of homophobia, then, by all rights, you must also accuse me of whorophobia.

Fury Pilot: I can then infer from your assertion that heterosexuality is a learned behaviour ....


Why yes, yes it is.

PsiChick: So we deserve to die?

You don't deserve to be robbed if you walk past a housing project with a laptop.
You don't deserve to be raped if you hitch-hike whilst wearing a miniskirt.
And so on and so on.

j0ndas: Gay men have hundreds of partners over their lifetime;

Dimensio: Please substantiate this assertion and demonstrate it to be universal for all homosexual males.



Water is wet. Grass is green. The sky is blue. Homosexual men are much more promiscuous than heterosexuals.

Heterosexual men are always on the make and will shag anything. Heterosexual women are selective. This means that heterosexual men are unable to shag at will. They have to make small talk and buy dinners and generally put forth a bit of effort. This takes time.

Homosexual men are always on the make and will shag anything. Homosexual men are not selective. This means that homosexual men are able to shag at will. They do not have to make small talk or buy dinners or generally put forth a bit of effort. This takes being in the same room.

Thisbymaster: I would like to know how anyone knows these people are gay in the first place. If they go around telling everyone they are gay in a anti-gay environment then I must questions their sanity.



Where homosexuality is discouraged and widely prevented, the occasional deviant still manages to conform to the conventions of that society. It is only in areas in decline and decadence that basic homosexuality as well as membership of the homosexual sub-culture is expressed with a quite narrow range of clichés and mannerisms.

The stereotype becomes true when no constraint is placed upon aberrant behaviour, and then causes conflicts with the standards of the community. In short, a complete intolerance of homosexuality provides the safest environment for youngsters to correct such behaviour.

If the top issue in Uganda is that there are Gay people, they truly are in a sadder state then I thought.

I thought food might have been a bigger issue.

Only if the anti-gay people are robbers and rapists or murderers.

You are a liar and a known troll. Your claims are not credible. Your claim that "Le Trole" is your surname is an obvious lie; no reason exists to believe any assertion that you have issued.

I reckon the problem here is that I'm simply expressing opinions that cannot be disputed without ad hominem and shout-downs and plain old histrionics. That does not make those opinions right. But, it certainly shows that they may not be wrong.

You have issued only unsubstantiated assertions. Because you are a known liar and a troll, unsubstantiated assertions issued by you are not credible.

Yet, for whatever reasons, you have chosen to pursue me in conversation throughout a moribund thread that will likely die well before it falls off the main page. I do find your simplicity engaging.

So please explain why you felt the need to come into the thread and say that homosexuality is a learned behavior when that is exactly the excuse evangelicals use to say that gays do deserve to die. Please.

/Because it sure sounded like you were supporting murder here...

Yeah, I'm just calling him out. I mean, there's a line between trolling and being a total dickwad, and he just leaped past it while cackling merrily. Even on Fark, there's limits.

roadmarks: The best I have been able to understand it is that these types of Christians MUST believe it is a choice. Because if their God condemns all homosexuals to hell, and it ISN'T a choice, their God is unjust.


You've got it all wrong.

You see THEY are choosing to repress their homosexual impulses, or at least to have a really good case of self-loathing and/or denial going on when they do inevitably act on them. Of course they can't admit this is the case without outing themselves as having a touch of teh ghey.

It really pisses them off when other people can do what they want to do without feeling guilty about it or risking being ostracized by their peer group if they get outed. They won't be happy unless everyone else is as repressed and miserable as they are.

Being gay isn't a choice, but living a life of denial and self-loathing pretending to be something you're not IS a choice.
