The fact that he does apparently hold some political influence means that things like this should be brought up whenever he tries to flex that influence in other ways.
    Its one clown, who drafted a bill that will never pass. Deal with it.

    I'm expressing my opinion of that "one clown" in a thread directly related to it. Maybe you are the one who needs to "deal with it".

I don't care how the guy wants to push it, it is not the government's place to do it. I'm not even sure it would be okay for the teams/league to do the proposed on their own. Private showers/stalls would be one thing, but separate facilities that single out/separate players by sexuality is discrimination.
    just more fear

    i love it

    equal rights is winning so bigots and those that support illegal discrimination are desperate

    the best part is it HELPS establish equal rights, normal people look at this stuff and the vetoed AZ bill and see how mentally retarded bat**** insane it is and it helps

    Your response spoke about the plural, as you talked about what "They" want not what "He" wants, clearly indicating which subject within the quoted post you were referring to.

    I'm sorry that your words gave away your pathetic attempt to hide your clear and purposeful attempt to attack an entire segment of people, but unfortunately yes....people do sometimes actually read what you write and actually respond to what you say.

    However, if you're now wanting to claim that you're clarifying and you don't mean that it's the GOP that you were responding to, go right ahead.
    Well, according to him he had a number of Republican legislators willing to sign on to such legislation. Of course, he could be lying.

    Nothing I said is fearmongering, at all. You are simply overreacting. I commented on how stupid the guy proposing this was and you start in trying to insult me and even others for expressing their opinions on this man's foolishness. It sounds like you are trying to cover something up you yourself feel by dismissing anyone who comments on this.
