Angela Lansbury's Merkin: exick: Oh Michele. The only bullying you've experienced at the hands of the LGBT community is when Marcus refuses to go to "the icky place".

Fresno?

No, but just as dry and depressing.

Arguably one of the greatest atrocities humanity has committed in the last 40-50 years is handing the criminal idiot Murdoch and his companies billions of dollars to lie to and misrepresent humanity.

Farce-Side: Who cares?  NYC's parade isn't even the best one.  Guiness, you're more than welcome to come sponsor the Savannah parade.


It has been 15 years since I have been to the Savannah St Patrick's Day Parade, do women still target soldiers marching in the parade and cover them in lipstick by the end of the parade route?  That was always hilarious to watch.

I'm going to pour a Guinness right now.

mmmm..... Guinness
 
2014-03-17 04:47:00 PM  

Farce-Side: SkinnyHead: I read that the parade is not banning gays, they just don't want people carrying sex signs. That sounds reasonable.

I could use a helpful picture of what a sex sign looks like.

Nobody is being banned from the parade because they're gay.

The parade doesn't want organized Gay Groups in the parade advertising their sexuality. People accept gays, they're just getting very sick and tired of gay groups waving their dicks in everybody's faces and screaming "HEY WE'RE GAY, ARE WE AWESOME OR WHAT????" all the time now. Maybe parents don't want to have to explain what gays are to their six year olds at a freakin' parade.

Just give it a rest already. People don't go to parades to learn about other people's kinks, OK?
 
2014-03-17 04:47:04 PM  
For every Guinness a bigot doesn't drink, I'll drink three.

Just kidding, I was going to drink them anyway.
 
2014-03-17 04:47:27 PM  
They banned gays and lesbians...

Again I ask myself, have we really evolved as a species since the 50's.
 
2014-03-17 04:47:28 PM  
Damn those gays for bullying me into wanting to suck dick and hanging out in airport restrooms.

Me and my wide stance would be fine if it wasn't for them *forcing* me to acknowledge their existence
 
2014-03-17 04:47:35 PM  

Farce-Side: papatex: the parade committee can do whatever they darn well please, regardless of a few beer makers don't like it.

Correct, as can the beer makers, regardless of a few pants-wetting conservative types.


I get it. Cause they aren't potty trained. So they went potty in their pants.

BTW- at first glance, I thought the picture of Rupert made him look like death...
 
2014-03-17 04:47:49 PM  

Rann Xerox: AeAe: Who the fark is Rupert Murdoch?  Also, why is he still alive?

Because evil lives a long time.


That old asshole can't go on for much longer.

papatex: If I'm a Christian and my opinion is that being gay doesn't make sense, I'm a bigot...


Calling you on your bullshiat here.

I don't care if you think being gay makes sense or not. But when you attempt to legislate your religion, I care. I care a great deal.
I don't care if someone says there's a god, or even if according to that god, I'm going to some eternal torment. Deliver your message, and move on. But when you continue to harass and harangue, you are breaking the law. Stop it.
I don't care if the end times come and this god of yours is revealed to be the actual creator of the universe and all us blind, misled fools will now suffer for it. If your god was worthy of worship, he would have been worshipped.

So, say homosexuality doesn't make sense. Even tell others that it upsets and revolts you. But don't stand in the way of a secular nation when it tries to ensure that ALL of its citizens have EQUAL rights.

Farce-Side: URAPNIS: goodness, Coors Light

You've got comedy chops, I'll give you that.


Or he's got no taste buds.  That's always possible.
 
2014-03-17 04:49:02 PM  
I really don't understand the connection between the gays and the Irish but it seems that trying to keep the gays out of a parade would be about as successful as trying to keep them out of musical theater.  It will just piss them off and make the parade less entertaining.
 
2014-03-17 04:49:09 PM  
Why the fark do they need to AW in another damned parade?  St. Patrick's Day has NOTHING to do with whether you prefer penises or vaginas.

You've pretty much won the marriage thing.  You can force people to bake cakes for your wedding upon pain of poverty.  You've got parades in every major city every year in your honor. What the fark else do you want?  No one GIVES a fark about the fact that you're gay, we're just farking sick and tired of hearing you biatch all the damned time.

Maybe, just MAYBE, you're "bullied" because once you come out of the closet, you act like the world owes you something.

It doesn't.  Congratulations, you're gay.  Now STFU and GBTW.

If she orders that, it's a sign that you are getting some.
 
2014-03-17 04:49:48 PM  
I'm buying 2 cases.

Difficulty: I don't drink.
 
2014-03-17 04:50:46 PM  
If Rupert Murdoch hates it, it must be doing the right thing
 
2014-03-17 04:50:51 PM  
I'll get right on that, as soon as I'm done the four-pack in my fridge.

Hey, good idea.  I don't drink either, but I do need beer occasionally to cook brats
 
2014-03-17 04:51:37 PM  
Yeah, call for a boycott of Guinness on St. Patrick's Day. I'm sure that'll work.

If she orders that, it's a sign that you are getting some paying for the meal.

 
2014-03-17 04:52:07 PM  
Next year if the ban continues, I suggest someone enter the parade with an utterly mundane looking float celebrating the usual bullshiat. Then as they pass the viewing stand, drop the sides to reveal a bunch of oiled up men in leather gstrings gyrating and grinding away to some gay anthem. Just for the laugh.
 
2014-03-17 04:53:37 PM  
Tomorrow's headline: Rupert Murdoch bought call options on Diageo (makers of Guinness) before calling for Guinness boycott.
 
2014-03-17 04:53:57 PM  

R.A.Danny: More for me.


More gays? OH...beer. you mean beer. don't you?
 
2014-03-17 04:54:25 PM  
I'm not gay, but if a good looking dude wants to suck my cock.. I'll trying anything at least once.
 
2014-03-17 04:54:27 PM  
Just the idea of having gey sex with Rupert while marching in a parade with a Guiness in hand seems a little complicated. Just chewing gum and walking is the best I can attempt sober.  And that's only if there are no Leprechauns underfoot.

God-is-a-Taco: FlashHarry: [img.fark.net image 400x394]

totally not gay.

How is that gay?


In my dreams he is.  *sigh*

MaudlinMutantMollusk: Piss off, on Rupert

 
2014-03-17 04:54:58 PM  

papatex: Oh look. Another one of these stories again....

What's getting tiresome in my mind is some people are "allowed" to have a public opinion and some people aren't...

If I'm a Christian and my opinion is that being gay doesn't make sense, I'm a bigot...

If I'm a LGBT and my opinion is there is no God, it's just their opinion...

I'm not saying I get bullied, nor will I ever say that, but let's all make sure we realize its a two way street and regardless of if you like it or not, the parade committee can do whatever they darn well please, regardless of a few beer makers don't like it.


I don't think your examples are very good. In both cases the people are allowed to have their opinions. And no one is a bigot for thinking that being gay "doesn't make sense." I'm straight, so being gay "doesn't make sense" to me, but I wouldn't deny others rights because of it. People who would are rightfully called bigots, but they still get to voice their stupid, bigoted opinions.

And if you don't think Christians have a tendency to treat atheists abhorrently, you haven't read much history.

Finally, the parade organizers cannot do as they please. They can do whatever they can do with the sponsorship money they collect. Fewer sponsors means less money, so they can do less.

mark12A: he parade doesn't want organized

Gay Girl ScoutGroups in the parade advertising their sexuality girl-scoutedness. People accept GaysGirl Scouts, they're just getting very sick and tired of gay Girl Scout groups waving their dicks cookies in everybody's faces and screaming "HEY WE'RE GAY, GIRL SCOUTS ARE WE AWESOME OR WHAT????" all the time now. Maybe parents don't want to have to explain what gays Girl Scouts are to their six year olds at a freakin' parade.

yup.  its not anti gay, its just that firefighters, veterans, girl scouts, local high schoolers etc. can all "call attention to themselves in an ostensibly Irish parade and its cool, but if gays do it its "WHY MUST THEY MAKE SUCH A BIG SHOW!!"  Totally not a sign of a belief in an inherent problem with gays . . .
 
2014-03-17 04:55:58 PM  
Not a fan of the beer, but I'll toss back a few tonight in Rupert's honor.
 
2014-03-17 04:56:07 PM  
Bear in mind that this same man owns Fox Broadcasting, which was declared by GLAAD to be the most gay-friendly network, and is filled with raunchy anti-family shows.
 
2014-03-17 04:56:13 PM  
Yeah, gays are totally not banned from the parade.

They're just not allowed to identify as being gay in any way.  They have to hide among the other tolerance groups and not let anyone know who or what they are.

Because hiding your gays is totally the same as accepting them as human beings, and is in no way similar to what the Russians were doing during the Olympics.

papatex: If I'm a Christian and my opinion is that being gay doesn't make sense, I'm a bigot...


I'm straight and being gay doesn't make sense to me. If it did, I'd be gay (or bi).

If you're straight or Christian or turtle or poor or confused or fertile - what you think about gayness matters less than what you think about god. The problem comes in when you try and apply laws unequally (as in the case of marriages and such), or create a set of laws to allow unequal treatment of gays and lesbians.

They have just as much right to live as you do, whether or not their life makes sense to you. Don't like what's on their plate? Don't eat off their plate.

// hell, being Christian makes no sense to me, either
 
2014-03-17 04:57:15 PM  
Honest question... why do lunch erals have to resort to this. Nobody is banning gays and lesbians. They at banning needless politics at a parade about being drunk. God Damn people. Grow up.
 
2014-03-17 04:57:31 PM  
Please provide a list of anything this asshole, Rupert Murdoch, has his sticky fingers in so I may boycott those products.

You may forgo the fish wrappers, I don't eat Shait in a cone.
 
2014-03-17 04:58:00 PM  
OK....why exactly does everybody feel they need to be included in something that has nothing to do with them...? I don't get offended when I can't put my big brown prostate float in the Komen/Speilman mammogram parade, and I'm pretty sure it would cause an uproar if I tried that...so, why? Just stay home, or just put on a green shirt and march along with the rest of us plain old people as if you're a human. You don't need to be separate and special on this one day that doesn't deal with where you want to stick it...I'm over it, you can also get over it.
 
2014-03-17 04:58:16 PM  
small question

How can someone be openly gay? O_o I mean aside from clipping on rainbow nipple rings while shooting rainbows from their ass?

/is gay so its ok to say
 
2014-03-17 04:58:20 PM  
I got my Guinness bar towel.

That does it, I'm taking up drinking.  For every Guinness you don't drink, I'm having two.

/same goes for Sam Adams
 
2014-03-17 04:58:56 PM  

kronicfeld: Hold on. Didn't the entire GOP just get done telling us that we don't NEED anti-discrimination laws, because those who discriminate against gays will feel retribution from the free market and go out of business? And isn't this exactly what we're seeing happen here? And now they're lamenting it?


No. They told you how idiotic liberals are when it comes to reading a law.

If liberals couldn't work in hyperbole they would have nothing left.
 
2014-03-17 04:59:19 PM  
I'm for boycotting Murdoch for boycotting Guinness for boycotting the NY St. Patrick Parade for boycotting the Gay. Just gotta fit that on a sign.
 
2014-03-17 04:59:53 PM  
When did "bullying" get redefined as "trying to make someone do something they don't want to"?
