    Well you can read the entirety of my post. i think I have addressed quite a few issues that many simpletons, including yourself, think you can make a case against what I said. And without resorting to strawmen, as many who attempted to attack my point, have... you have no argument to make. You have no position to take other than 1, which is the position Gardner and I have come to a consensus on, that he goes his way thinking that this whole... coming out spectacle that some public figures entertain is doing any good and I ofc, think it's useless in terms of positive PR and can be quite damaging.

    Also, your username is not funny and I'm not trying to make fun of it. Your username is utterly stupid. People with big penises don't need to go about announcing that that they have big penises... and likewise, people with critical thinking capacities don't feel the need to go about announcing that to the world. The people who do feel the need to state that they possess a certain quality, whether it be large penises or critical thinking... are the ones who lack that quality.

    Do you get this heated under the collar about how heterosexuals are represented at Spring Break festivals? You are not fooling anyone but yourself. You are annoyed by public displays of gay sexuality while you make little fuss about expressions of hetero sexuality. This has nothing to do with what works best for the public image of gays. It is about what works best for you because of your obvious discomfort with gay sexuality.

    Ok. This response further proves the deep hypocrisy that divorces you, the person, from the alias you have taken on this forum.

    I already addressed the issue of slutification and all that base... pathetic behavior. Read the thread and read my comments. Don't make me repeat myself.

    You care too much what other people think. You do not want to do anything that could potentially offend anyone and so it offends you when others do not seem to care what others think about how they dress or act. Learn to live and let live.

    I addressed this mentality and line of thinking twice in this thread.

    Here's one of the replies, copy pasted because I'm not going to type a new way to explain this to you just for you, special snowflake.
    I said this before. We have to live together, as people, in a cramped space like a city... we have to walk the same roads and eat at the same places and we buy our stuff at the same markets. We cannot live together if we don't adhere to a code of conduct that is good for you, me and everyone.

    It is hard to live with people because everyone has their own little quirks. So that's why, when we go out in public, we need to all not get on each others' nerves. I don't need to take **** from you and as a sign of respect, I don't give you **** to deal with from me.
    The reason I dress properly and cover my body when I go out is because that's civil. The reason I don't wear ostentatious or abusive or otherwise insulting clothing is because I don't want to be a source of discomfort for other people and I don't want to disrespect other people and I expect as much in return.

    If you don't agree with that, then you don't agree with a civilized society and respect among human beings. Respect doesn't mean that I have to take your ****. Respect means we all respect a code of conduct that has proven to be good for everyone.

    ROFL. Your definition of a civilized society is nobody doing anything that anyone else could find offensive. You got quite the stick up your butt.

    No... it's everyone should respect other people when they step out in public and first and foremost, respecting yourself. Dress properly. Act decently as a civilized person should. If you think that going outside with your hairy nipples showing and with a clown face on is the good way to go about expressing yourself, you're going to only find solace among the idiots and halfwits who do the same... and you'll all be sitting in a dark corner crying as to why the world isn't respecting you.

    You don't deserve respect if you don't give respect and you don't deserve respect just because you demand it.
    Inside your own home, fine, go nuts. Do whatever you want. Dress any way you want. But when you step outside that house and into the public, step out with decency and respect and the world will reciprocate that.

    I know this is a hard concept to grasp. Between all these "social justice" brigades and "civil activists" and what naught who are really, just beggars with a fancy name... who do exactly what they are... beg of people to throw onto them the scraps of respect for no good reason... and when you refuse to do that, they insult you. Beggars rely on the charity of others to function in society. Real men and women (of any sexual orientation ) don't, they earn the respect of others and don't beg for people to to treat them with respect or demand that they be treated with respect or they'll bully you by calling you a sexist or a homophobe or whatever. No. Real people with moral integrity and fiber earn respect and step out the door with an offering of respect to the world and their fellow citizens.

    Nice podium there. I am sorry the mere existance of bohemians and libertines offends you so.

    I have no interest in people's bedroom preferences. It's a private matter.

    No. And it is my right to not conform to what you view as "respectful" dress or speech. You don't get to make that determination for everyone else.
