    Toodles! Your own words act as the only response needed. There is no justifying them to anyone but yourself.

    Are you implying that you can't teach an old Tigger new tricks?

    Young Tigger's 'tricks' were learned very early as a coping mechanism. He has made public his 'lifestory' regarding that. Whether or not he realizes that other people rise above their challenges without such bitterness, I dont know. Every person handles adversity differently. I know that I am glad I did not have to walk a mile in his shoes and am being very honest about that.

    Real men don't run and hide from women who challenge them

    I'm beginning to udnderstand why Tigger wants the govt to forbid women from challenging men.

I don't see making baskets to be a moral act nor an immoral act. I don't see giving charitably as a moral act nor an immoral act. Giving charitably is just something that some people like to do. The same thing goes for swimming. Swimming is neither moral nor immoral.

    Trust me: That ridiculous statement was loaded as junk.

    Unless these regulations fall under these categories:

    Prevention of violent action.
    Protection of the citizenry.
    Infrastructure improvement/creation.
    Majority approved Constitutional adjustment.
    ....and a few others....

    The regulation becomes an invasion of rights.
    Are you a fan of totalitarianism?

    Really? Feelings can be controlled by law. Just how exactly are they suppose to do that? If I feel love there is no law what so ever that can take that love away. If I feel anger, again, there is not a single law out there that can take it away. You're not trying to regulate feelings, you're trying to regulate actions. There is a difference. And a huge one. As such you will never get rid of homosexuality. You might be able to hide it, but you will never get rid of it.
