    Lol! Here is TD's post and then your reply. You made a claim, TD confronted you about it, and you wimped out. Take responsibility for your awful debating here.

    trust me Chrisl, I've responded to that stupidity too many times to do it again ... if you too believe that calling a black man a pimp and a white man a pimp, given the history of racism and racial stereotypes in this country, is the same thing, then you have found a soul mate in TD and a lot of other bigoted folks on these threads, mostly cons ... and please, grow up -- "wimped out?" - this isn't high school Chris ... come on ...

    Dude, a pimp is a pimp. There is no "hidden" meaning. You sound paranoid.

    as I thought ... I'm not black, but you just reminded me of a guy who once observed, "If you're a black man in Amerikkka and you're not paranoid, you're crazy." ... I have a low tolerance for bigotry, especially the subtle, cowardly expressions of it ... so it's actually best I ignore those who engage in it more often ... it's hard to do that sometimes ... but I'll try harder ... you have my word ...

    Being homosexual in Russia is breaking the law in this case..

    Not to my understanding. My understanding of the law is they treat open homosexuality like a movie rating "R". That the law is to protect minors from being exposed to it.

    Consider it like our "contributing to the delinquency of a minor" type laws.

    As long as there are no public displays, no one would even know.

    What do you think?
    It would be stupid to boycott the olympics over something like that.
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.
