dc they can't handle the truth, so they are acting like pre-school recess bullies.

It's called a self defense mechanism.

Funny!

I was in Wrigleyville in Chicago. I decided to take a break from drinking and went for a walk. I am a friendly person. I say hello to people I pass by and will even offer up a conversation if the opportunity presents itself. Of course I said hello to two gay guys. I shook one's hand and the other's as well, but he decided to kiss my hand as if I were his bitch. All was good...I ignored the effort anwe still exchanged pleasantries...discussing what was in the area and my home town for a few minutes. It was time to move on, I wanted to get back to my friends, so I offered a handshake to each before I left. I shook the first guys hand and the other guy...who leaned in to try to kiss me. No big deal...I politely moved away and said no thank you, but I appreciate the consideration. The gay guy got pissed for some reason and said F - U as he walked away. I replied,"sorry, I just don't go that way" and walked away myself. I don't hate gays. I like all people and would never raise a hand in anger at anyone who doesn't deserve it. A gay guy trying to kiss me doesn't deserve to be attacked.

My point is simple. You guys can accuse me of all you want and name call all you want. But when it comes down to it...I am more tolerant than most of you hate filled idiots. Just because I think the gay lifestyle is wrong and I am against gay marriages doesn't mean I hate anyone. It simply means I have an opinion and I won't be intimidated by those who choose to attack simply vbecause my point of view doesn't jive with yours.

people who don't think homosexuals are perverts = hate filled idiots??

First of all, I commend you for handling the situation that way because honestly, I think that would have made me a little uncomfortable also.

But I don't think not hitting someone when they try and kiss you qualifies as being tolerant.

I don't understand how people can be angry because they think the gays are trying to impose their views on everyone else. By denying them that right you are in fact doing the exact same thing that you claim they are doing. But I will say that there is quite a difference between the two. Denying the homosexuals the rights to marry is far worse because you are denying someone the right to do something that will never at all effect you. They are not changing the way you live your life. They are not requiring you to do anything. They are not denying you any right.

While this is mildly amusing, it is also messed up. Even Tammy Bruce, a lesbian herself, says it is messed up what the *radical* gay agenda shoves down kids' throats.
Oh, dcolton, I'd report abuse from all of these people if I were you. Then they could get banninated. I thought there were "no personal attacks" as rule 1? Well, unless you're a tiny step right of Stalin. Yeah, report abuse and see if the moderators listenor care.

Didn't make me feel uncomfortable. Could care less because I know where my moral compass points. Funny though...I bet some of these so called pro-gay advocates would react quite differently.

But I don't think not hitting someone when they try and kiss you qualifies as being tolerant.
Fair enough.

If I guy was trying to force himself onto a gal and she smacked him, is that ok?

How is that any different?

This thread isn't about denying rights.

Either way...your inability to be civil shows how weak the pro-gay arguments are
You're right. I didn't get any warning, and my wise crack shows that I really have no argument. I feel so ashamed to have acted a fool on an Internet forum and gotten away with it. God save me. And the Queen.

I'm sure you're bright enough to run a government. The "GW is stoopid" attacks are unfounded and old. Not even funny. Why is it that when people ask a question, they refer to a question about Bush's intelligence, which they would have no knowledge of?

I don't know. I wouldn't mind trying. It'll probably be tough. I'm gonna have a few beers, do a line, and think about it. I'll get back to ya on that when I'm 40.

The "GW is stoopid" attacks are unfounded and old. Not even funny.


So don't laugh. I'm only joking around. I don't pretend that I could run the country in an efficient mannerbut I'll certainly criticize the President's actions and policies if I disagree with them.

Why is it that when people ask a question, they refer to a question about Bush's intelligence, which they would have no knowledge of?
No one asked me a question. Or maybe I missed it.

Technically it's not a question. You said Bush couldn't figure out the vB prefs. My bad. But still, constantly referring to him in an unrelated thread is dumb.
Also, I don't go around criticizing Kerry's intelligence. I think he's a liar, but I don't think he's stupid.

He has been following me around personally attacking me. He's a fanboy. The both cancel each other out.

At least that is how it works when I complain about people personally attacking me if I am apart of it. Demon will just tell me "You were doing it too" and nothing is done.

I accept it. I am sure you will too.

Now lets get back on track and talk about Disney and homos.

I do. Mods don't give a damn because the abusers are libs. They let them have free reign then when a conservative fights back, they hit the ban button in their effort to censor the truth

Most of the mods are liberal. Not all. Take it that in stride.

Oh, you just wish you got that much attention. Repeat it enough and you start to believe it.

You goad and troll all the time. You practically beg for it, I'd say. Come on, you can take it.

Not that I personally attack you. It just eats you up that twisted a graphic of yours and copied an idea for one. Ya big sissy (omg, hit teh raport butten).

I accept it. I am sure you will too.
Repeat it enough and others might believe it.

Ah, you've stumbled onto the problem. Most geeks are elitist libs, and even more so for mac users because they buy into the chic elitist "we have better computers so we're better than you" thing some PC nerds use. The modern art thing might also have a relation. Ever seen those ads more MacDirectory?

Try this: pm the main guy here and say "I think it is unfair who neo-cons are treated on this board. I think it very unfair that so few liberals are banned for the same things many neo-cons are banned for. Can you please lighten up a bit and be a little less biased in your search for someone to ban? I wouldn't ban a lib who disagrees with me, or a neo-con."

A spanish translation might also help.

Just make yourself out to be the Che of the board and it might be ok. Everyone loves revolutionaries. Even counter-revolutionaries.

No, really. Go look at your last 10 posts in this forum. You got quite an obsession going on there.

You goad and troll all the time. You practically beg for it, I'd say. Come on, you can take it.

I am not the one threatening to report people..

Not that I personally attack you. It just eats you up that twisted a graphic of yours and copied an idea for one. Ya big sissy (omg, hit teh raport butten).
Again, I am not the one crybabying about it. I figured we were just "playing"

Others got offended. Hiss and honk to them fanboy.

Umm.... so should Fox attack Disney? Is it any good? Would I care? Does it change the course of history? Will it bring on the apocalypse? Will we create human/alien hybrids with the intelligence to figure out how to get a G5 inside a powerbook without it exploding? I'm so baffled... will I....?

Does anything matter in the long run? If I asked for my grandma on a phone sex line, would it matter?

Whose in charge?

Been there done that at any rate. Even recieved a few emails from someone. End result...NADA! It is so funny. I think it is time to change the mods and find someone who can be fair. Have you ever noticed though...that there is always at least one conservative banned at any given time. Wonder why!

Also, how many libs have been banninated? I don't think I have seen one even disciplined.

Starting now I think the admins should ban anyone making any personal attacks or jabs in this forum. Including me if I do it.

It would clam down a lot of the shenanigans in here.

But I doubt you'll ever see it happen.

Uh huh... right. For starters I'd recommend a chill pill because I was just kidding.

"I wouldn't give PBS the satisfaction that I watched their drek. Rather go watch UPN." -Communist thread.

What a weak attitude indeed. Here someone complains about Fox. Now you complain about PBS. What is accomplished? NOTHING! As for the link in this thread to Fox news, I checked it out. Was their judgment correct? That's debatable. However, I at least saw it. Therefor I may make a judgment based on my observation.
