    That actually backs up my argument since you just admitted that you're not describing a gay lifestyle - you're describing a male lifestyle.

    The problem is also as I have mentioned that too many gay men that think there sexuality IS their life.
    Which is why I think you need to meet more gay people or maybe it's that you've already met them but didn't realize it since they didn't make their sexuality their lifestyle.

    I have lived around and with all kinds of gay people all my life. I can say with certainty, it is the lifestyle for a large percentage.
    Certainty doesn't do much for the truth. You're describing a subset of gay men and the lifestyle of a subset of gay men does not equal a "gay lifestyle" particularly since it is the same type of promiscuous lifestyle had by subsets of straight men and women.

    Hi. Welcome to the board.

    So, people should only get married if they intend to procreate?

    So you are just going to say it is a mistake? OK.

    You know as well as I do it has happened far too many times with far to many people.

    Yes it was a mistake, I don't know why you are having trouble believing me.

    No, I am describing a gay life style that a much larger per capita group lives than in heterosexual circles.

    I don't need to meet gay people. I work with them, live around them and I don't care who they sleep with. This does not change the disgust I feel for the life style among those I mentioned.

    See this is what I mean. I am describing a majority subset or not. I read the surveys and live around em. I am not blind. I know what it is and how they portray themselves.

    I never said gay men= equal gay life style or anything close. I said a majority not all. I suppose this was also a mistake?

    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.

    I'm sorry, but that comparison doesn't make sense. Say Star falls in love, and after a happy 60th anniversary, her dearly beloved passes on. The way things are now, they were never married and she cannot be provided for. Of course, had she married a man, she would be. Now how is that fair or right?
