Re: Which is worse? Aborting an unwanted fetus, or letting a gay couple adopt it?

First I need pix of the prospective Dads. If one has a chest worthy of baby snuggling, not guilty. If they're both sassy or on television, I vote "choice".

Re: Seattle gay pride participants beat up Christian street preacher on video

I believe the dwarf reads sci-fi, so naturally I hate you more than any other religion.

Re: Seattle gay pride participants beat up Christian street preacher on video

I don't believe in sin, but I know we all struggle with unethical desires, sexual or otherwise, or at least desires we find worthy of suppressing. No reading required.Not exactly. I'm still...

Re: Seattle gay pride participants beat up Christian street preacher on video

I am merely gay, but internalized a level of shame more appropriate to a rapist or child molester. I remain too uptight for sex after a lifetime of willing the problem away coupled with the...

Re: Seattle gay pride participants beat up Christian street preacher on video

All forbidden loves are not equal. Anti-gay rhetoric gets a boost trying to make them so. Much of the polygamy-offramp consists of claiming "anything goes" is the only rationale for accepting gay...

Re: Polling Views on Non-Traditional Marriages

I declined to attend a dear Mormon actor-friend's wedding about a year after Prop 8 passed. I left the reason just vague enough so that neither of us would have to deal with what was left unspoken,...

Re: Polling Views on Non-Traditional Marriages

...thanks. And don't get me started on how *few* religions or churches can stand on their own without an "evil other"--right outside the church door--to prop them up, maintain "god's people" status &...

Re: Polling Views on Non-Traditional Marriages

I'd like to highlight this sentence, with no disrespect to the poster, to point out how central it is to the issue.

Because I *did* change my behavior to conform. And have spent my life frigid &...

re: Better Call Saul (AMC, Premieres 2014) S:Odenkirk

Saul's always seemed to me more like a walking spoof than a real character.

It works on the main show because while structured like a heavy serialized drama, a lot of what goes on is gallows...

Re: Polling Views on Non-Traditional Marriages

Just heading off at the pass any possible implication that the world consists of, say, people with strong morals and values vs. progressives. Or that the latter actually have a higher divorce rate....

Re: Supreme Court -- 2011 and beyond discussion

California: No 25 or 30 day delay. The "stay" was lifted a few hours back, clerks given the go-ahead, and the lady-couple litigants were just (re?)married at SF City Hall.

re: Unarmed teen gets shot by Zimmerman...[Verdict: Not Guilty] ptII

I'm willing to buy that Zimm shot in self-defense long before I'm willing to buy that his initial degree of suspicion was reasonable. I'm not willing to overlook what seems to be a pattern of...

Re: Stephen King's Under The Dome - Spielberg Produced - CBS

I guess my question is this: Is there *any* ending, or at least any dome explanation, that could come across significantly *better* than the one in the book? Seems to me King wrote the story on a...

re: Unarmed teen gets shot by Zimmerman...[Verdict: Not Guilty] ptII

I can see holding Zimm responsible for the overall situation and charging him with manslaughter. Murder 2 may have been an over-reach brought about by the political circus. If they both over-reacted...

Re: General Hospital Blessed With a 50th Season by ABC.

I'm guessing her character gets killed--she says she was "written off" the show and it had nothing to do with any conflicts or contract issues.

Definitely fair to say the show's been floundering...

Re: Paula Dean uses "N" word

Can white fans rap along with their favorite songs without saying it with some frequency? Do black fans get uptight about it? As far as I know, the answers are no and no.

Re: 'Captain Planet and the Planeteers' Movie in the Works From Sony

It was a politically polarizing show even back when. I can't imagine how you script it today without half the country sharpening their daggers.

Which half still being TBA, depending on the tone.

Re: Paula Dean uses "N" word

Not racial, but qu**r & fa**ot can have similarly complex contexts these days, and are often used in-group in ways that to others can seem positive, negative, or confusingly neutral.

Re: Same Sex Marriage: 2018

Our society disapproves of many things, and that disapproval does not make them equivalent. Nor is it illogical to continue believing in some laws or norms simply because you disagree with one. Plus:...

Re: Same Sex Marriage: 2018

There are still 7 or 8 "civil union" states, so I'm going to say those become marriage states.

As for the *most* recalcitrant states, I'm less worried about how long they can prohibit marriages...
