    Why stop there? Let us get rid of the Goths and Emos because they are not normal. Let us get rid of any cultural differences.

    Obviously, you don't.

    I only quoted you as you're the one who brought up the "flaming" adjective. Perhaps someone else would like to address the question of the flaming heterosexuals. Anyone?

    The 2nd part of your comment... what??
    So? That does not mean that guy was actually gay. Hell, there are many crossdressers and transsexuals that aren't gay (sort of). You can find men that dress like that "clown" who are married and completely heterosexual or bisexual but never actually been with a guy and rather are in a committed relationship with a woman. You can find MTF transgendered people who are attracted only to women. They are born men, and feel that they are lesbians trapped in a man's body.

    You are making assumptions based on personal biases and beliefs, certainly not facts.

    Heck, we had an entire clown troop onboard the carrier while I was stationed on it, and they were all good ol' boys (most were involved in setting up a rodeo team for the ship as well). Not a one of them were gay, but they all were registered with official clown names.

    Looks can be deceiving, as can personal biases and stereotypes.

    And who made you the arbiter of what constitutes a "civilized society" and "respect among human beings"? You have shown a marked lack of the latter. A civilized society would never trust your deplorable judgment on the matter. The gay is here to stay, dude. Get over it already.

    It is amusing to me to see the strawmen people like you draw up.
    The moment somebody doesn't adhere to the rhetoric the so-called liberals (by US standards), all of you attack with the wiedest set of strawmen ever. Read the rest of the comments I made you illiterate lolozaurus.

    And I am not the arbiter of what constitutes a civilized society, society is. And we all came together, talked about it, and decided that wandering around in our undies and with our private parts showing is not a good idea. Sorry you weren't invited to the big talk but we thought it'd be best considering you're only capable of breeding strawmen arguments that hold no water.

    The fact that this thread is already at page 10 clearly answers the question in the title.

    It is hard not to address blatantly idiotic comments when I see them.

    You can make fun of my username and I will just continue to rip apart your feable attempts at arguments. Do you even have an argument in this thread aside from "Some gays are attention whores and I do not like it!"?
