    Have you tried hookah? I would probably smoke more if I could, but nicotine gives me a nasty headache. Good for you though. They say quitting adds 7 years to your life.

    You think but there will be consequences if gays flaunt what the do
    Gay Pride parades have nothing to do with gays in the military, and are not arrogant.

    Why is it "a load of crap" or "disgusting"? Guys do things to other guys to get on their nerves, rile them up, or "toughen" them up all the time. I have seen it so many times during my time in the Navy. Hazing has become against the rules because many take it too far and it becomes dangerous. Yet there is still hazing that is done. And even some of bootcamp is meant to "toughen" people up.

    And the more a person feels that they will be made fun of for their prejudices, the more most of them will get over those prejudices. The rules will go only so far to force people to accept others and be tolerant. Peer pressure, when used correctly, is much better at getting people to accept others.

    Not only did we have no instances of unwanted sexual advances of a gay guy on a straight guy, but we also had no instances of violence against a gay guy for being gay, despite having a dozen or more openly gay personnel in our department of at least 800 cycled through during my entire time on the ship. Much of the reason for this I contribute to the fact that anyone who expressed any intolerance openly toward gays learned really quick that the majority of the department had no problem with gay personnel. The majority of the department judged each person on their own actions, and not on their religious beliefs, race, sex, or sexuality. What was most important at the end of the day was that a person was pulling their own weight and doing their job.

    You should try to remember, ideas are conveyed by researching information, vetting sources, and confirming said information. Not by regurgitating talking points given to you by your "news" station.

    You do know such people are usually condemned just as much by the gay community for making us look bad? Seriously, is it anymore fair to post Westboro Baptist Church as examples of decent Christians than it is to post naked paraders as examples of decent gay folk?

    Yeah, I avoid gay pride parades cuz they are painfully bright colored.

    Think of it this way, if gays could serve openly, they would have better looking guys for recruitment posters, with much better hair!

    Hey, and don't forget the new sequinned pick camouflage!!! Fabulous, I tell ya!
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.
