GF named my left testicle thundercles: i know that this is a hate thread and that i will probably get yelled at but i think there is some truth to this article. families are becoming a thing of the past and that is a huge problem because families are what create human capital. what percentage of children are raise in single mother homes? 40% or something? and they have a huge chance of turn out to be worthless members of society. Its the kind of thing that, through entropy accumulated over generations, can bring down empires.


"Worthless members of society"? By what standard? Crime is at a 40 year low in this country - so apparently, the "worthless people" these dreaded single parent families are turning out are expressing their "worthlessness" in less criminal ways than their more "worthy" predecessors from earlier generations.
I'm thinking that before you start making sweeping generalizations about who is and isn't "worthless', that you consult the teaching of the popular middle eastern prophet, Jesus of Nazareth. He had some pretty choice words for the sort of asshole who sets himself up as a judge of the "worth" of his fellwe human beings.

Wayne 985: As a gay man, I would like to apologize. Like Pandora, I foolishly opened that proverbial box by choosing to be gay and unleashed my evil upon the world. I didn't know that my being different and asking to be treated as an equal would create such "dependence and dysfunction" as Mr. Fairman states. Worse, I have apparently "bent my knee to Baal", which I can only assume is some Satanic sex euphemism.

Please, forgive me. I'll return to the closet and marry a woman. We'll both pretend to be happy and have the requisite 2.5 children who will in no way be miserable in what is objectively the ideal home.

If only I had known before. If only I had known.

I don't think the poster was arguing anything about gays or their insipid plot to stabilize families by adopting children and providing them with a wonderful, nay, fabulous life, I think the poster just wanted to rail about the decay of society without actually looking at the economic and political factors causing it, which is a pretty worthless (his term) way of pointing out the painfully obvious without advancing the discussion. Kudos!

Why do women need nice skin anyway? Those women are just doing it to impress other women.

Yes, because we should go back to ostracizing, jailing, and killing gays. Farking morans.

The bottom line is that we live in a constitutionally-limited republic. Our Constitution basically says we're all free and equal. What that means to social conservatards is that you may not approve of someone's life choices but so long as those choices don't affect you personally, it's none of your goddamn business.

Kumana Wanalaia: Homosexuality is widespread among animals.

Some species are all hermaphrodites. Some species change sex depending on environment.

Female hyenas all have penises.

There is a species of worm (osedax) that lives off of whale bones on the ocean floor. The female worm grows "roots" into the bone to eat it. The male osedax worm is microscopic and lives in the blood of the female.

So you can take your "homosexuality isn't natural" argument and blow it out your ass. Nature is way more diverse than just homosexuality. Hell a dog will hump anything it can get ahold of. Cue the pic of the dog banging the large goose.

All that is natural, created by your God.

Let homosexuals be free and equal.


I blame my elementary school social studies and late high school government classes for my liberal views on this sort of thing -- We were promised a land where everyone was free to make their own life. Obviously, it has taken us 240+ years since that promise was made, and we still haven't achieved it. But, we inexorably draw closer and closer to it.
 
2012-11-18 07:43:58 PM  
You think straight men would be fine with gay men, since that means less competition for women. And most of them have no problem with lesbians, which makes them supreme hypocrites.

How about you all grow up in regards to sexuality and equality, stop crying about your stupid backwards religion, and live your own lives instead of trying to control everyone else's?

Thankfully, we have constitutional scholars in the GOP (see also: grifters) who still debate the meaning of such difficult terms like "free" and "equal".

Pretty much. Folks who WANT to get married are the problem. Obviously. That is the breakdown of the whole thing. People WANTING to get married. Instead we should just force people to get married. You know, for the benefit of their families. For property. A real return to the values of our forefathers. Cash and cows and property...

Our ways are old, but they are true. Better to fight and acquit ourselves with courage, even in defeat, than acquiesce those blood-bought principles and pass into the horizon, like a drifting constellation in the night sky.

No one is trying to make you acquiesce your principles you self-important bigot. You just can use your principles to infringe on other people's right to live, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

No, the overwhelming majority of anti-gay bigots aren't actually gay; the handful of examples of bigots being brought out of the closet are far outnumbered by the rest of them; you think you're being a good liberal and insulting social conservatives when you say that they're closeted gay people, but what you're really doing is insulting gay people.

jso2897: Farker Soze: jso2897: Dimensio: nmrsnr: Serious question: What horrible things is society's acceptance supposed to pave the way for? Nationwide crime is at historic lows, people are more educated than ever (scary, considering the vocal idiots out there, but true), divorce rates are fairly stable (possibly even declining). The only number that seems to be going up is children out of wedlock, and it's hard to see how homosexual relationships effects that one that much. So what is the problem, exactly?

As homosexuality is increasingly tolerated, bigots who irrationlly predict the downfall of human civilization are more readily exposed as dishonest and not worthy of trust. Many of these bigots are in positions of authority and derive their income from the trust of members of the public. As they are exposed as dishonest, due to their claims regarding homosexuality being demonstrably falsified, their income and their very livelihoods are threatened. Their desperate and dishonest attacks against homosexuals have become an attempt to retain sufficient relevance to remain solvent.

A similar phenomenon may observed in leaders of gun control advocacy groups.

Poor comparison,. Gun grabbers are deluded people who mean well, but fail to grasp the paradox of unintended consequences and the folly of prohibition. Their desire for a safe and peaceful world is rational - the way they think they can achieve it is not.

Nah. Gun control and gay control aren't about guns or gays, they're about control. Just two sets of people trying to impose their will because guns/gays are icky.

Doesn't jibe with my personal experience. I don't really know too many gun grabbers any more, but most of those I have known were just naive and deluded. But that's part of the reason it's gotten to be a pretty rare point of view. People are seeing through it, like they are seeing through the war on drugs.
I don't buy most arguments from equivalency - they are the product of childish and lazy minds.
No ...


To clarify: I am addressing, and comparing, the leaders of the two movements, not the lesser supporters of the movements.

So it's old, fat guys who are resistant to change; race has nothing to do with it.


I think it's relevant to the cartoon. Black people opposing gay marriage after interracial marriage was opposed by whites provides the irony.

The change I fought for in the sixties has had a tough uphill climb (especially with the 80% of my generation who are assholes in the way), but the young people I see today make my heart swell with pride. Their indifference to the hateful, archaic obsessions that bedevil this wretched man, and their determination to take the world in newer, better directions give me a sense of peace and contentment - contentment that I am leaving this world in better hands.

Eventually, society will come to its sense, the current proponents of the normalization of homosexuality miscegenation will move onto some other social fad they can rally around, and use to re-affirm their virtue while taking out their anxieties and insecurities on their opponents, and the nation will eventually introduce proper regulation governing homosexuals the races and their activities.

In fact, I never cease to be amazed at all manner of people, young and old, who I would have never suspected hold firm and cherish these Old Ways and have not bent their knee to Baal.
