The MITT-BOT 2000 cannot be outfitted with the empathy module at this time. You'll have to wait until they finish the Beta tests and release the new version, before you can install that particular option on your MITT-BOT.

As a staunch marriage equality supporter, I have no problem with that response. It's every bit as dickish as a parent demanding that someone else tell them how to deal with their own kids.

The two on the left there? Gay as a Christmas revue. Mark my words. And homeboy on the far right there is no stranger to the gloryhole, though i'd guess him bi.

Is there a list of gayness?

For example, is "Gay as a Christmas revue" more or less gay than eight guys blowing nine guys? And where does the three dollar bill fit on this scale?



I would actually put eight dudes and nine dudes fairly low on the scale; having same-sex sexual experience does not make you exclusively homosexual, nor does it mean you'll continue to seek them out. That might just be a party weekend, what do we know.


The three-dollar bill is a measure of queerness. It only loosely correlates to the level of individual homogay. Hmpf. Be more careful with your units.


The ultimate measure of homogayness in dudes is the Christmas. A Christmas revue is an awful lot of Christmas in a couple of hours, but still is not quite as gay as a hot cup of dick on Christmas morning. A single unit of Christmas will suffice for your average dude, maybe raised to the power of holiday angel if he owns a pursedog.

I am for equality, ban opposite sex marriage!


Tell her that you are not ready for marriage because you feel that it forces your relationship to become a codependency that fosters each of you to take the other for granted. Instead you would want to stay happily unmarried to motivate you to show how much you love her every day.
