What do Nazis marching by torchlight have to do with this?

Yes.

Me.

I'm done with the hate-trolling on here. The toe-touching the line of ugliness but not over it by a technicality. I agree with redietz. In this thread, Max and EB are playing a nasty hate-speech game about gays. AZD is piling on with his usual misinformed social garbage. It's like pond scum from the disgusting political threads is dragged into every other waterway by the same slimy fouled boats.



Quoted to find out if AAAEBSAMETO. I do wish the poster would look at her own Trump posts before throwing such stones. Some have been pretty vile.

Gays are never going to sleep with any of you, so what do you care who they do sleep with? You can't stand people being happy to NOT be nailed to fences, NOT be dragged behind pickup trucks, NOT be immolated by sick bigots any more? You can't stand people in love holding hands, hugging, or kissing? You can't stand people. That's the real issue. People with all their differences, their quirks and flaws, their joy in life.



No. If you read the posts from those you have insulted you will see that what we dislike is a group that wants "to be equal" to "just live their life" but then calls attention to it every chance they get. You do not see "straight pride rallies" (except a small few in response to the gay pride rallies, and they were in one case denied a permit!) You do not see people waving "straight pride flags." See, if gays want "to be normal" then they need to just live a quiet, normal life. A normal life is not what they want. Attention is what they want.

It is like the claim, "he can be fired for being gay!" No, a good employee will be kept. You will get fired for lets call it, "camping it up" and acting unprofessional, being disruptive. That is what will get you fired. But a special law is demanded to allow it.

Thought this board took a stand against hate speech last year. Guess it didn't take. Don't know why we have to look at a confederate flag every time AZD posts. Might as well be 1488 - he makes that obvious.



No, a flag showing rebellion. I am guessing the gay flag, the one you like, is OK though? If you want to suggest tolerance, it goes both ways.

If there is any doubt that OP is a racist bigot, I will remind everyone of this gem -

You do not see straight pride parades because there are no anti-straight laws.

I suppose women's equal rights marchers are calling attention to their sides because there are no equal rigths mens marches?

Straight males pretty much have every other parade to themselves.

But everyone is a racist iinside so what is wrong with expressing ones self. After all, if being gay isn't a choice, why can't some people just be hardwired for hatred. Perhaps that's why some seemingly normal folks are so fundamentally broken. Hate the sin, but love the sinner. Yeah, that's the ticket.

That went too far. Three days.

As a point of order, admin names are in green, whether banned or not. The ability to post as an admin supersedes being banned, so it's pretty much on the honor system.

Put me on the Group W bench as well, Mike. It's no coincidence this shit started on the second anniversary of Nazis marching by torchlight.



As you wish. We will make the reason profanity.

It's to bad that peoples thoughts are so programmed that there can't be a topic like Bob started here. I think this thread has the potential to illuminate and educate.

Ams blocked the thread right away or so he says, that is sad because I think he may have had the experience and certainly the intelligence to discuss this topic in an adult and possibly civil manner.

My take on more than 80% of AMS posts is that they all include a slightly disguised insult, and he has been given time out occasionally for it, but also I've witnessed Babs instant defense of anything remotely insulting to AMS. It's possible he has her on speed PM? Whatever, they're handling that. But then I notice Once dear leaps in and warns and threatens against straying to close the insult line. Is everyone that pitifully sensitive? Is that what your work of love and respect for free speech has come to?

I've had gay friends longer than twice the time AMS has been alive. A friend of ours who is a Dyke just left after staying with us for two weeks, [she is also an excellent cook].

I remember years ago some mayor of San Francisco retorted when someone remarked that SF was known for having many homosexuals that live there, he said "yes we do have many gay people" but we also have a lot of other things of interest.

I'm sorry to see you shut down this thread, for whatever reason you feel the need, [if you do]. I don't see it as prejudice or racist, maybe others have to? IDK, but if members here don't give this a chance to be discussed openly and maturely, that is as homophobic as anything I can think of, when we are afraid to even say the word. It must not appear to you Wizard, that there has been a direct insult, or you would have dealt with it, as would OD, or whoever's on duty. I think by not giving it a chance, you are reducing LBG's to that being the entirety of their existence. We all are, more than our sexuality.

We have moderators standing at the ready to do what they feel is necessary, extra warnings have already been given. What is everyone afraid of?



I donít think it has to do with the subject or the word gay. I think it has more to do with letís not have a thread for every possible individual political topic on a gambling forum.

Even a thread dealing with the Gilroy Garlic festival draws the same re-heated posts about Conservatives and Liberals, Obama and Clinton, Sexual Orientation comments, etc. Not only have we heard it all before but if it didn't take place near Gilroy at or about the time of the festival what motivates these trolls to mount their favorite soapbox and bore us to utter distraction with their tiresome views over and over again.

I have never asked a Boxman or a Base Dealer about their views on politics or sexual orientation issues. And you can be absolutely certain that I will not bring up such irrelevant nonsense to someone who has a stick in his hand.

Nope. Again, a mod told us to start
a Gay thread, so I started one. So
I'm the bad guy? What did I say here
that's hateful or not true. Nothing.
The offense in 2019 is just discussing
it at all. That's how low society has
gotten.

I didn't say you were bad guy, at least not for starting this thread. Personally I don't see anything wrong with it unless it breeds serious hateful comments. I guess I should have made that clear. I might make gay jokes, but I don't hate Gays or think they are inferior people.


BUT, you can't tell me you didn't know this would create a ton of controversy. I'm sure once a mod suggested a gay thread you jumped right on that knowing damn well it was a bad idea.


I was mainly talking about in the future if they decide to change the rules.
