*Tries to calculate this in his head*

well, if he was both a lesbian and gay, he'd qualify for transgender and I guess would double as Bisexual since he apparently is sexually ambidextrous

I'd like to know how someone who only cares about taking your guns away does so by being on the school board.
 
2013-08-27 05:23:50 PM  
What does pro or anti gun control have to do with being on a school board?
 
2013-08-27 05:24:45 PM  
I like how the flyer is very precisely worded to not actually state that Mr. Hernandez doesn't supports sports, doesn't care about our kids and hates our values, but lets the reader imply it.

It's a very well done logical fallacy.

Louie C. Gonzales needs to tell his supporters to grow up OR someone needs to tell him to.  And if it actually starts from him, he needs to be found passed out in a gay bar's bathroom.  Preferably tied to Sharif Joe with Joe only half wearing one of his pink prisoner outfits.

I used to work with a girl (who was a crazy feminist, so it's funnier to call her a 'girl') who used to refer to Dungeons and Dragons as "sport" as in "I'm going to play sport tonight. We starting a new campaign so I have to finish my character."

fark those assholes.
They are just afraid.
Good luck

Good luck, Daniel. You must be doing well if your opponents can't even get their acronyms right.

/Calling someone on the school board "anti-gun?"

Put a REAL Man on the Sunnyside Board

Because running into the line of fire to save the life of a woman shot in the head is the essence of cowardice. Now, sitting in a scooter due to morbid obesity and holding up a misspelled sign, that's heroism.

I'm amused by the fact that neither flyer ever actually mentions education.
 
2013-08-27 06:11:24 PM  
Is...  Is anyone really concerned that a school board member might take away their guns?

I mean, is this really a concern for anyone, anywhere?  The hell man.
 
2013-08-27 06:12:19 PM  
Oh, and five bucks says the people who made the flyers are too big of a group of pussies to put their actual name/information on the flyers.

Education is an elitist concept. Typical liberal...

Gay people don't care about sports?  What?

Yes, that's what school needs. More sports.

Most of the homosexual men that I know are big fans of sports, football in particular.

Obviously this monster is trying to take away guns from the good law-abiding children who bring them to school every day.

Satanic_Hamster: Is...  Is anyone really concerned that a school board member might take away their guns?

The poster is a mix of homophobia and Freudian imagery.  Homophobia as in "this gay man wants to molest you and rob you of your manlihood!"  Freudian imagery in the gun reference (a connection between guns and dicks is common for both the pro- and anti-control groups), leading to "this gay man wants to take your guns and rob you of your manlihood!"

Not saying I agree with it; in fact I find it despicable.  But the implications are clear.

As a proud owner of the DC gay flag football league calendar ("Shirts vs. Skins"), I got a kick out of that.

Don't forget that a QB is sometimes required to choose between tossing to a wide receiver or a tight end.
 
2013-08-27 06:29:46 PM  
Seriously, they are trying to use "sports" as code? Isn't it common knowledge that most athletes AND fans are gay?

School boards discuss education?

hard to believe gay men would want to play as skins!

i can only imagine the snickering that goes on with "tight end" or "wide receiver", or "backfield in motion" penalties.  "are you a wide receiver?"  "buy me a drink and find out OONTZ OONTZ OONTZ OONTZ!"

what do the refs wear?  chaps?  leather?

It shouldn't matter if he's gay, as long as he loves the kids and does his best for them.

Well, you make a pass at a tight end, who likes to penetrate long and deep, and that's how you score.
