Nasty old biddy. She needs to either get with the times, or stay home crocheting sweaters for great grandchildren.

"Kyle Calendine would lay down his life for anyone in need," said Proffitt, who has been police chief since 2000 in Pomeroy, about 100 miles southeast of Columbus. "This is a win for Kyle, for our department and for the gay community. It lets people know that no matter what, we're all in this together."

On the other hand, the police chief sounds kind of awesome.

If she were really so old-fashioned, wouldn't being the mayor be a man's job?
 
2013-02-09 08:04:19 PM
Oh come on. The old biddie has to be about 103. You can't expect her to be all up with the times.

That said, who the hell elected her mayor?

No one else wanted the job, I bet.

""She stated 'I don't like a Queer working for the Village, I might be old-fashioned, but I don't like it.'" Proffitt wrote in the statement. "


But is she fine with transsexuals, bisexuals, BDSMs, homo sapiens and furries working for the Village?

Southeastern Ohio is the poorest part of Ohio - most of them don't have a choice.  Example: Athens County (home of Ohio University) is the poorest county in Ohio.  As a NE Ohio with 2 sisters who went to OU, let me tell you - it's a whole 'nother world.  Everything outside the university in Athens proper is just desolate.  It's like telling the 8 mile residents, "Why don't you just move?!?"

Ohio mayor resigns because she's old fashioned. Old fashioned as in hanging out in the kitchen making an open-faced sandwich for her police officer husband, discussing her recipes with other local wives and wanting to run the PTA.

He is not so naïve, however, as to believe this is the end of it. In fact, he said he's long been a victim of discrimination himself; his wife is Filipino.

This sounds like a great place to live never ever go.

It's about time someone had the moral integrity to stand up to these Godless Sodomites! Praise Jeesus!

Next thing you know, they'll be allowing them around children. Don't you people know that the AMERICAN FAMILY ASSOCIATION, a group without reproach and of impeccable integrity, have found that GAys molest children at a rate one MILLION times that of Straight, God Fearing Americans?

All you libtard FARK sodomites can take your welcome to fark and DIAF, too.

The fact that people still think that sexual orientation is a "lifestyle" and don't realize that sexual orientation is a lot more complex and biologically oriented than people who want to cherry pick certain aspects of gay culture are willing or able to understand.

Bottom line is be respectful and kind to people. Should have just said that.  She should have figured that out by now.

Gay people do not have children.  They build landing strips for gay martians.  Get it right, Stuart.

You're right about that. It's just you need to be careful when you refer to being homosexual as a "lifestyle" or a "choice". No one in their right mind in the United States would ever choose to be gay given the climate of hatred and persecution they experience, and there is plenty of scientific evidence that it's an inborn trait.

Sexual orientation is not culture. They're two different things.

Good luck to you down there.  I went to Penn State in central PA and saw the same, but not as bad, income disparaties.  Both towns are a traditional college gem, but nobody likes to think about the dozens of counties outside the corporation limit that have virtually no income.

You're confusing 224 with I-70.


You're confusing I-70 with the McDonald's parking lot in Lancaster, OH. It's almost an immediate change from the descendants of German immigrant farmers and urbanised former Amish farmland straight to Scots-Irish Westbygod Virginia. Everything past the glaciation line is dirt-poor Appalaicha, everything north and west is Ohio. Think about this for a minute: the 2008 financial crisis barely put a dent in our "economy", because we had nearly no investment in Wall St or a housing bubble. There's a mid-sized university in Athens, a large and successful community college in Nelsonville, and a booming polymer industry in Belpre. Everything else is Walmarts, McDonalds, and trailers as far as the eye can see.

Yes, but he's suffered bigotry as his wife is Filipino,

He's just doing his bit to try and drag this community kicking and screaming into the attitudes we had in the 20th Century.

Depending on who you talk to, "queer" can mean all of those.  It's also something of an insult, depending on who's using it.  Sort of like "attractive and successful."  Generally speaking, you're safer just not using the word at all, unless it's to describe yourself or someone who has told you it's ok to use it to refer to them.
