Some fairly cute but pushy Long Island princess was totally smitten with him and was always after him. So he asked a few of his closest friends to let her know he "was gay" which we passed on to her with subtle inferences and conversations among ourselves that we made sure she could sort of eavesdrop on. well it worked. 15 years later, at our reunion, David was there with his really cute wife (also a doctor) and a couple kids and the princess showed up. She said to a few of us she was stunned-she figured he really was gay since he didn't bed her UNLIKE ALL THE OTHER GUYS AND GIRLS who just pretended to be gay because they thought it would make them "Cool"

    back cover is as far as I ever got. I loved the ads from Columbia and NYU for "paid studies".

    You may as well ask why any member starts issues relating to a certain topic.
    I'm not insinuating anything, I'm asking a question of someone who, while claiming not to be in any way gay, starts 8 threads on the topic in the past 3 months and contributes manically to any other thread on the topic. So, I ask again, why are you so obsessed with homosexuals? Hell, I'm a screaming faggot and even I'm not that interested in the subject.

    The topic isn't about me, Anda. If you were to make certain threads on some other issue, should I press you, or anyone else, as to why they do it?

    You are deliberately ignoring history. Polygamy and same sex marriage have existed throughout human history and you know it. I'm not sure why you have chosen this particular tact of parroting a propaganda organization and using their rhetoric. NOM undoubtedly were the people who came up with using the word "redefine".

    Actually, CT, I've never heard of the Nat'l Organization of Marriage. Nothing's been parroted, friend.

    Now you are lying.

    You got your new talking point right from NOM's website.

    I do feel SSM redefines the concept of marriage, and I don't think it's uncivil to hold that view. Is it uncivil to choose a certain pov on the abortion issue?
    You are parroting an organization that specifically exists to spread fear and untruths about gays and lesbians. Furthermore you are doing it deliberately and maliciously in an attempt to play both sides of the fence. This is insulting to everyone's intelligence. This is purely so you can oppose same sex marriage while pretending it has nothing to do with your religious beliefs.

    I can respect a person saying they oppose same sex marriage because of their religious beliefs. I cannot respect a person who plays a game where they claim they do not oppose same sex marriage but rather they oppose the "redefinition" of marriage. That is simply a childish game they play when they want to fool people into believing that this isn't a religious issue.

    Re: Are Homosexuals Oppressed?

    It almost seems to me that Wake intentionally started this thread so he could bring out the "well you have it better than the Jews under the Nazi's."

    Well that may be true Wake but as a wise man once said an injustice anywhere is an injustice everywhere and until gay people are treated equally under the law it's nothing but institutionalized discrimination by the government and I will not stand for it.

    It is a form of oppression.
