xria: The thing is, even if you accept it as a sin, there is no evidence that it is one of the important ones, certainly compared to things that are hammered on about for most of the new testament like helping the poor and needy, and loving thy neighbor (which Jesus basically explains means everyone else, rather than everyone like you).

NarrMaster: Again, a BIBLICAL LITERALIST


He didn't walk into a bar at any point in this story.  I am disappoint.

And also I lack shock that the bible can be "literally" interpreted in a plethora of different ways.  For one thing, not a lot of folk of that stripe seem to have a good grasp on what the term "literal" really means as an adjective..

A friend's mom made a Facebook page called "Traditional Values" that was naturally an anti-marriage-equality thing. My friend and I made sockpuppet accounts and trolled them with "supportive" comments. We ultimately got the mom to say that black people are fine, "in their place". Many, many lulz were had.

...in the "restroom thingee"

Like I said, unless they've got completely different ways of relieving themselves, I'm fairly sure gay folk use their privates in restroom thingees exactly the same way we do.

So why does "not worrying about what people do with their privates" stop working out well once you've gone to the loo?

Gay men use the womens loo?


I'm a straight woman and I've used the men's loo plenty of times. The lines are much shorter, if they exist at all. Never had a problem, either. Also, no one asks if they can "borrow" my lip gloss, so that's a huge bonus right there.

I met a teenager from Indiana on AOL once. He was a nice kid. He was pretending he was a girl, but whatever, I could see past that.

Kept talking about moving away from that place. He also said I had a "cool" voice. Last I talked to him, I wrote to him on AIM and somebody wrote, "Who is this?" I already forgot what I wrote back, but I've never contacted that screen name again. And trust me, I really tried to remember how I worded it. It was something like, "Somebody who enjoys talking to whoever uses this screen name."
