Seriously.  I don't even know what more to say about that.

Some wise Farker once advised us to imagine a thought bubble over the head of any Family Values Conservative that constantly follows him or her around, and says "gay sex" or "anal sex" or "rape".

It's so funny. It has made it bearable to listen to them. Try it now:

thinkprogress.org

See? It works!

/still depressing when political leadership is this stupid and hateful

Indiana passed new education standards that mirror Common Core almost to the letter, but it leaves out the homosexual.
 
2014-05-19 03:38:46 PM
How?
 
2014-05-19 03:46:56 PM

James!: How?


Common Core educational standards are based primarily on musical theater. Children as young as 6 are being forced to learn the lyrics to "Surrey with the Fringe on Top"

As gay as 4 guys banging 5 guys. As gay as a tote bag full of dicks and glitter. As gay as a summer's day in Victorian England.

A few years ao some friends of mine did "craigslist: the Musical"  I have to say their adaptation of that song into "Furry with a strap-on cock" was inspired


so see?  it's all part of the agenda....

We are talking a Streisand concert on Fire Island with Erasure as the opening act, on Oscar Wilde's birthday, sponsored by Tom of Finland with Abercrombie male models working security and George Takei as MC.

We're talking if Divine adopts a gay baby (henceforth refered to as "gayby") with RuPaul, and that gayby raises another gayby with Johnny Weir.

What is the conservative obsession with homosexuality?  Seriously.  I can go for years without thinking, "Is (fill in the blank) making me gay?"

I didn't think Republicans recognized that there's a spectrum of human sexuality. Yay progress?

Watching someone lose their mind would be entertaining if that person wasn't a politician able to vote for whatever stupid thing he wanted.
 
2014-05-19 04:30:32 PM
Right wingers;
This is why we make fun of you and have stopped voting for Republican.  Not because of Acorn, not because of Obamaphones or a desire for free stuff, BUT THIS shiat RIGHT HERE.
 
2014-05-19 04:30:39 PM
So they're saying Common Core will solve the problem of teen pregnancy?

Excellent!
 
2014-05-19 04:31:14 PM
There may be legitimate arguments against Common Core standards, but all the republican derp about it really poisons the well.

My son is in third grade in Florida. I shall report to you Farkers what effects I see.  So far he doesn't care about pro or college sports, is that a thing?

Serious Black: I think it's time to mercy nuke the country to death. As long as it's a fabulous nuking.


In my mind I'm seeing the "We'll Meet Again" ending to "Dr. Strangelove" but with all the mushroom clouds done up in rainbows and sparkles.
 
2014-05-19 04:35:20 PM
Is this one of those things where being around something or learning about it instantly makes you become it?  Like how I grew 12 inches, turned black, and suddenly got in shape after reading about famous Black Basketball Players?

a good many of them are deeply repressed homosexuals, i'm guessing.
 
2014-05-19 04:37:37 PM
So...according to this fella, English fluency, competency in communication, a passing knowledge in literature, and math skills are gay?

I'm fairly certain that the Castro District and Provincetown do have a few lit majors, and possibly a few engineers, but I don't think that is what makes them the gayest places in the country. Just saying...
 
2014-05-19 04:37:43 PM
Where the hell was Common Core when I was in school?

I didn't even come out to myself till I was 44!

//got nothin'

I visited with family last week and my 9-year-old grand niece was demonstrating the Common Core math approach when I arrived. Everybody poo-poo'ed but I can see how the approach, clumsy as it is, can teach the concepts behind addition and multiplication rather than just forcing some rote learning on the student. Still, at a certain point the kids are going to have to learn the old-fashioned approach or they're going to look pretty silly trying to do algebra or calculus that way.

We then went to the zoo and while my brother was buying tickets, I asked Abby to figure out how much it was going to cost, based on the number of adults (four @ $14) and kids (two @ $10). She managed to figure it out in her head and said "Wow, that's a lot." I said "Some day you will be the adult buying tickets for everyone and you will have to figure out what things are are going to cost. That's what math is all about."

Now, for extra credit:

A college student writes his father asking for money and his father writes back "I'll send you some more cash if you can solve the following problem. In the addition problem below, each letter represents a number between zero and nine. Send me the correct solution and I will send you money."

any chance of Liza Minelli being pulled up on stage for a "surprise" duet?

Gay or not, Tom of Finland makes a fine toothpaste.

"It will turn your kids as gay as a closeted Republican State Representative speaking at an anti-Common Core conference telling you how it will turn your kids as gay as a closeted Republican State Representative speaking at an anti-Common Core conference. To hear more of my thoughts on the matter, tap your foot thrice under the stall divider."
 
2014-05-19 04:39:32 PM
On one hand, I worry that implementation of Common Core standards will result in a ton of education money being shoveled to third-party education corporations who will push lots and lots of testing all over the place, wasting money (standardized tests cost a bundle per test) that could be much better spent and failing to actually teach our kids to do much but regurgitate test answers.

On the other hand, that may align me with assholes like this.

That'll show 'em. They won't think of outsourcing our American gayness to foreign shores and lads now.

Where can I get the classes, and are they expensive?  I'm kinda sick of my boyfriend.

Can an adult go, or are we only turning kids gay?

Are we turning ALL kids gay, or just some?
What's the criteria if the answer to the above question is some?

Can I turn my dog gay - do they have GayDog classes?  What about GayCat?  What about birds and fish?

What if you're already gay?  Will these classes turn you straight or do you just get gayer as you go along?
 
2014-05-19 04:42:48 PM
Well, it works. My kids are all gaying it up way above their grade level. I'm supposed to be helping them with their homework, but now I have to spend hours studying on Urban Dictionary and Salon.com first to even know what their assignments are about.
