If I were a man, I'd be considered pretty mild mannered, but as a woman I'm apparently pretty outrageous. I'm amazed at the number of women and AAs that are LGBT bigots. It makes no sense to have felt the sense of second classism even though the law is on our sides, and yet so many seem determined to allow sanctioned and legal bigotry and sexism (I think there is a lot of sexism in the homo-hatred in that most don't see a problem with lesbianism, it's the male aspect of homosexuality that most are most freaked out about). I'm happy to see the pillars dissolving suddenly really quickly. It's a good thing, and I used to be one of the "others" on this issue.

    I was until two things, one was my recognition and open discussion of the male vs female factor mentioned above. The other was just simply really having the reality of the "rights" associated with marriage shoved in my face, mostly upon divorce. Then my kids' friends would point out even more that I've yet to experience surrounding hospitals, death, children and so on... and well now I see. Anyway, the point remains,

    If your love requires that anyone accept second class status, then your love isn't worth much of anything.
    My 'love' requires nothing of the other person. I have in-laws that are gay. I love them unconditionally. I care for them. I support them. I dont agree with them, nor do I change my position on gay marriage. But I LOVE them. I love them unconditionally. They know they are welcome in our home and they FEEL welcome in our home. Yours and others stated position that unless you agree with them and change your position then you don't love them is simply foolish.

And that's what these leftist agitators are protesting about. But not one word or protest against all of the countries where buggery is outlawed, not even those where it's a capital offense. Do you see a problem here ?
    Err, yes. You're still a decent person because you support not killing gays. But all those leftists! Protesting about equal treatment! You'd never want to give them the benefit of being right.

    The difference between the response to all those countries and Russia is that those other countries aren't hosting the Olympics.
    Exactly what year were the Olympics held in the Peoples Republic of China ? Talk about human rights violations.

    And advocate buggery in front of a child in Japan and watch the Code of Bushido come alive. What year was it that the Olympics were held in Japan ?

    Club a baby seal to a bloody pulp in America and watch what happens. What year was it that the Olympics were held in Canada ?

    Have to research if any country where pedophelia is legal has ever been the host of the Olympics.

    Yeah, and there was a lot of protest of that as well.

    Is this a joke? Bushido is not the law of the land in Japan. You're really reaching if you're comparing the reaction of a private citizen to official government policy. And there's nothing in the Bushido code regarding homosexuality (I love how you refer to it simply as "buggery," as if there's no other form of homosexual activity. Speaks volumes.)

    Wow, you're really plumbing the depths here. Clubbing baby seals is not official government policy of Canada.

    Even if past Olympic hosts have blemishes on their record, that means Russia's should be excused? Human rights groups and many other people had a fit when China got the Olympics. Really, I'm not sure what the hell your argument is here.

    I live in North Carolina. I'm not so sure it would be a good idea to bring this suggestion up at our next city hall meeting.

    How often has the left been right about anything ? It's always about change, never taking the time looking at what the consequences will be and rarely ever getting it right.

    These are the same loons who blamed Ronald Reagan for the AIDS epidemic .

    Reagan's response to the AIDS epidemic was pathetic.

    This article can be found at the Montreal Gazette.

    I hope more cities will choose to protest the anti-gay laws in Russia by doing this. Hopefully we can get more Canadian cities to do it as well as some American cities. Do you think that your/nearest city would raise the LGBT flag?

    I'm surprised Agent J didn't know this.
