Don't bother trying to explain that to Jerry. Topics like paleontology and places like Olduvai Gorge are a tad too esoteric. But you're quite correct.



I thought it was common kowledge.

BTW I got you unblocked.

Sample size far too small to draw a conclusion. The general population probably tends to be 1-2% with another 3-4% who are "confused" because popular culture has tried to make it seem normal. And some of that 3-4% will try it out because it is better than being alone in their mind.



The sample size may be too small to infer the prescence of of some unkown factor in casino chips or the air in Vegas. But I think it's representative of people who read this board frequently and perhaps those who post often. I lurk in other places, where I never or hardly ever post but vote in polls often.

So there :P

Of course, GLBT covers a lot of ground, particularly the T part. I've known people, usually men, with a clothes fetish describe themselves as transgendered. Such factors can broaden the pool to a pond.

BTW "it" may not be normal. So what?

So it's more or less the same banter that occurs on just about every newscast? When Geoff Fox on WTHN mentions his wife is he flaunting his heterosexuality?
Watch GoodDay NY the weather guy there seems to need to be in a muscle tee with his arms oiled.

Out of curiosity were you offended that he made inappropriate comments or that he made them about another male?



There is a reason why I began my original post with "Everyone please excuse my lack of knowledge on this subject." I didn't grow up around gays and don't really know much about them. In order to gain some insight, I asked what I considered to be some legitimate questions. Some seem to be offended by them especially when I asked why some gays feel the need to flaunt their behavior. It was pointed out that straight people flaunt themselves as well. Sure they do but this thread is about gays. That's why I didn't ask about straight people or why some authority figures abuse their power or why some athletes and movie stars keep getting arrested. I'd still like to know why some gays flaunt their behavior.

You asked me for examples, I provided them and you dismissed them as the same banter that occurs on just about every newscast. I don't think saying "I don't swing that way" to the entire world from the news desk is banter of any kind. I've never heard Geoff Fox or any other person make lewd, crude and derogatory remarks about another human being. I think this guy gives a black eye to the gay community and I believe that most people gay or straight would agree. Perhaps we should make it a poll. I have no animosity or ill will towards anyone's beliefs or life styles.

No, I was not offended by any inappropriate comments and I was not offended that he made them about another male. Were you offended by my posts, Wavy?

Let's summarize this and be done with it. We got 43 voters. 1 wise guy said he wasn't sure, 37 are normal people, and 5 admit to being gay.

God bless the numbers!

Now what I'd like to know is who are the other 4 gay people? I mean, does it really matter if you identify your handles, you're already afraid of everyone by using anonymous names. Then I'd like to know how many are men, and how many of them speak with a lisp.

Wait, your gaydar doesn't work over the Internet? I think you should get it returned, man.

Your continuing insinuations about us who refrain from using our real names as being cowardly is hilarious, by the way.

In the short time since you posted this, there were three more GLBT votes, one more non-GLBT, and one more unsure.

Good luck trying to figure out who voted for what.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁 Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition. 🤗

Not that it will help figure it out, you left out a rather significant detail: Transgenered? Which way did you switch?

Of course, based upon your handle, we can make a semi-educated guess. Or can we?....

Might as well.

I'm transgendered, too. In fact, Nareed is a woman's name (I made it up, yes, but for a female character). I was going to use a different nick, D'kian, which is a male name, but the board didn't like the apostrophe. In these kinds of boards I always use only those two names.

The rest is quite complicated and would be better adressed on a separate thread. I'll just say my sexual preferences confuse me no end.

I am a guy and I am straight just thought I would have a little fun...If anyone needs any help on BLACKJACK. Drop me a line. I maybe young but I have played more hands than a lot of the older professionals. I grew up on it, almost an hour a day growing up. And I have played may upon many 24 hour+ sessions. That have dropped considerably since I now incorporate sessions limits!
