Nobody will give Kluwe flack, mainly because they're scared to death that he'll eviscerate them with his awesome replies.

I love the guy, definitely my favorite player in the NFL.

There's an nsfw photo out there that you'll probably find if you GIS "dildo costume", but I'm not going to do that because, well, I'm at work.

This is the what men who are secure in their sexuality sound like.

I don't subscribe to the idea that all men who hate gays are secretly gay themselves, though I think that's sometimes a factor. But I do think that men who are secure in their sexuality really don't give a shiat about the sexuality of others.

That's always been my experience. When I was a kid I used to think all straight guys hated queers...then as I got older I realized it was actually just the immature asshat ones riddled with insecurity. And who wants to be friends with them, anyway?
 
2012-10-19 12:25:09 PM
In addition to being a hero for equal rights, Kluwe is gonna get so much tail for being outspoken like that. Chicks dig dudes whoa re straight, manly and yet have a heart.

I know, as I used to be pretty manly. I should work on getting that back.

I'm going to bring up my standard gripe about the "equal rights" talk being disingenuous. If you really wanted equal rights, you'd have a problem with all unmarried people being denied the benefits that come along with marriage, not just gay couples.

You can start by coming over to my place dressed in ass-less leather chaps, a harness, ball-gag, and biker's boots. Just don't ask any questions about what I'm doing when I start to handcuff you.

To whom would the rights go to, for unmarried people? Most of the time these rights involve things like property transfer, mutual ownership, or joint decisions in the case of incapacity. They sort of require a close relationship with a second person. For straight people, the state recognizes that with civil marriage. For gay people . . . on the federal level, they've basically got nothing.

Yep. Anti-gay rights people are farked in the head. Let us suppose "Roger" loves "Michael" and they have lived and loved together for ten years or so, or even six months. Who cares? They had a civil union ceremony because that is all they can get in their state. Roger's family disowned him years ago when they found out he was gay. Now Roger has cancer and is dying. Thanks to bigoted laws, the only people allowed to make decisions for him, visit him and take care of him are the same people who disowned him for his lifestyle.

Fark that shiat. It is bad enough his asshole family disowned him but now the law won't let him be comforted in his final days by someone who truly loves him?

If either of my kids turns out to be gay, that shiat will not happen. In another 50 years, this probably won't be an issue and our generation will be looked back at with incredulity at how small minded we were.

Hats off to Kluwe, and for you gay guys, pants off to Kluwe.

I saw a documentary where a man in the Northern midwest had his home taken away from him after his partner died due to a technicality in the will that was challenged by estranged family members (cousins, no less) of the deceased. It all pretty much came down to the ruling of one judge, who was most likely a bigoted prick.

The surviving member of that couple was a sad sight to see. Not sure if it was his natural demeanor, but he seemed to be struggling with a mild depression at the time of the interview. He had a large storage shed/container that the extended family of the deceased had broken into to steal things as well, as if being awarded the property and the house wasn't enough.

Pretty sad.

I agree philosphicly with serial crusher there. But I also agree with Spherical time, that it is a straw man argument.

Monogomous hetero couples have the option of getting married at the last second if its the fan.

While there are many ways that they can protect themselves and thier loved ones, gay couples will always face the risk of a family member coming in at the last second and mucking it all up, and there not much recourse when that happens

Income tax rates are my big gripe. They can either help or hurt depending on your respective income levels. In my perfect world, the IRS would expect married couples to file two individual returns, with no special checkboxes or different rates.
(I'd also settle for making it legal to marry my dog. Under the current tax code, a stay at home spouse would save me a shiatload of money).

For most cases I'd rather see the privileges taken away from married couples rather than granted to unmarried individuals. Say, tax free inheritance. Ideally I'd like to see your spouse just have to pay inheritance taxes just like any other person would if you willed something to them. Or alternatively, get rid of inheritance taxes for everybody.

On the joint decisions in case of incapacity thing, there's no reason I shouldn't be able to pick an arbitrary person to make those decisions for me. Of course, I can fill out some paperwork to give somebody power of attorney to solve that problem. But, so can a gay couple, so there's really no reason to include it in the discussion. You can argue that it's unfair that gay couples have to pay more money to file powers of attorney than straight couples do to get a marriage certificate, but then isn't it also unfair that a single person has to pay more? Lower prices for everybody or raise them on straight couples.

Then there's the laws that require insurance companies to offer coverage to the insured's spouse at the same rate. I'd like to be able to pick up an arbitrary person and include them on my plan.

What specifically are you talking about family members mucking up? Is this the "I'm in a coma, spouse knows I want to pull the plug, fundie parents don't want to" situation?
1) How'd that turn out for Terri Schiavo
2) Doesn't an unmarried person who disagrees with his parents have the same problem?

I just don't think a marriage certificate is the right solution to that one.

From that day forward, I have been incredibly sympathetic to gay rights. I encourage other men to take up the cock.

Why would a Packer not like a Raven? We like you guys out there in cheeseland just fine. Your division has been kind of funny in past years (like a slightly stronger flavor of NFC West except for your Pack), and not at all involved with ours.
