    So that's why you keep telling people you're black. You keep on thinking that if you tell people you're black, your opinions will be untouchable. Damn, I bet that didn't work out how you thought it would after 4 years on the forum.

    It wouldn't be more, it'd be less.

    Gotta love it when morons describe equality as a "power grab."
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Seems pretty simple. The only people against it are jihading cultural conservatives.
    This is my view on it 100%. No "some people have marriages and some people have civil unions." There is no reason to ever have "seperate but equal" laws for different groups of people.

    This member of the LGBT community has to agree with this. Homophobe is thrown out WAY too much.

    Now see, I agreed with your earlier statement but this one I dont. You dont know what an individual person of any group will believe or say.

    That's the sort of thinking that makes juvenile detention a growth industry.

    One of the unpleasant little truths that Moderns have so much trouble with is that their beautiful little baby is a natural savage, and that in less than 4 years the rudimentary concepts of civilization, morality and the much devalued virtue obedience must be rigorously, and often painfully imprinted upon it.

    The older I get, the more that I think that constant expressions of affection rather than stern expectation damage the adults that children become, and by extension society.

    I have come to believe that the relatively young idea that childhood should be happy, is a culturally decadent and suicidal one. (Look up the norms for child rearing in Colonial America if you believe me not, an consider that adults that resulted then, as opposed to the lifelong adolescents that we produce now.)

    Again, then who handles power of attorney, inheritance rights, etc.?
