Major disappointment! I thought the title of this blog meant that gay was no longer politically correct as a description of people with what most of the world thinks is a non-standard lifestyle.

I thought, finally, I'll be able to sing the "Legend of Zorro" without looking over my shoulder. Darn.

@ CEELEE53 - ....."heterosexuals can't seem to catch a break, esp. if they are old, white and conservative. A dying breed....." That statement is totally selfish. Homosexuals are also a "dying breed", even the young, those with color and liberal.

@ 4EVRYOUNG - ..... Not yours, too? Say it isn't so! "If it wasn't for the fact that I hate the cold, I'd have moved from the South years ago ..... Redneck, in-bred, racist, close-minded clowns." Jeez, that's a tough thing to take, but, even in the best of families ......

@ COACHPENNY - "The idiots pushing this legislation should be outed for lunacy." Actually, they should be treated exactly the same as those idiot legislators who hold parents responsible of the actions of their children, but won't let the parents know their underage children are being free birth control by an irresponsible government. If both types of idiots were eliminated, the next election would have a LOT of vacancies.

@ CEELEE53 - "We are witnessing the unravelling(sic) of a political party. A party so uptight and bound by it's religious right that all we can do is watch in amazement at one implosion after another." If you are talking about the RNC, the members of the so-called "Grand Old Party", they differ not one whit from those who control the Democrat Party. All you have to do is to look at how many true conservatives made it to nominating convention. None. It was a done deal and the true conservatives were never given a chance to participate. In general, BOTH party's have their fair share of idiots - Democrats in the Senate and Vice Presidency and Republicans in the House.

@ WILLAMLC - "And since we sharing secrets.. it is part of the “gay life style” to make sure we make an old white folk miserable a day… we have quotas, you know?" ROTF ..... "quotas" ..... LMAO. Willam, Dr. Sir, I have watched thousands on the Comedy Channel who can not come close to the humor you have in just one of your little fingers. I am absolutely not demeaning you in any way. Of everyone on this team, you seem to be able to reach out and grasp a bright gem of humor ..... more than all of the rest of us together.

@ CEELEE53 - You didn't have to be gay, Jewish, Catholic, Mexican, Asian or black in small town schools to meet the best bullies. If you were shorter than your peers, had skipped a grade, was a year younger than the other members of your class and was a "curve-buster", you met with the best, second best and third best bullies in school. The key to stopping bullies in school was being smarter. There really is no such thing as a fair fight. Being bullied by someone who is 10" taller and 60-70# heavier isn't fair. Neither is it fair to ambush that same bully. Even if they are bigger, slower and dumber - they can learn that being a bully doesn't protect them from what they are willing to deal out to others.

@ COACHPENNY - Whether Barry Sotero was born in the United States or not is not the main issue. If we give him the possibility he was born in Hawaii and ignore the numbering of birth certificates and acknowledge his mother as a natural born American - he still does not meet the qualifications to be President because his father was NOT a natural born American or any kind of American at all (and from some reports, his father would be classified as a bigamist in the United States, making his marriage to Barry's mom null and void). Then, you have to ignore the subject of Barry's SSN. It boggles the mind to accept that a future Presidential contender would have a SSN designated for use by Connecticut citizens show up issued to a person born in Hawaii or moved to Oregon at a young age. Only in a comic book. I have a simple challenge for you dear lady. Prove he is not a Muslim, that he is not a socialist, that he wasn't born in Nigeria as he claimed in a book he wrote. Prove that the "counseling" required for old people is not the equivalent to "death panels" in his loudly touted health plan; prove his economic actions aren't bleeding the economy dry; prove he has taken no actions to violate his Oath of Office; prove he isn't intent on taking guns away from legal citizens; prove he opposes the targeting of American citizens for death without due process. Finally, prove that every one of his Executive Orders comply with the Constitution.

And he's supposed to be some sort of Constitutional scholar. From a number of his Executive orders, his Constitutional Law professors must have been a combination of Socialists, Fascists and Communist.

Just so y'all will have something to look forward to, I'll list the EO's I believe violate the Constitution and quote the section of the Constitution the violate by Saturday, February 9, 2013.

Don't try to float that pathetic balloon about the length of my rebuttals unless you recognize the reason is the number of posts that need rebutting.

I'm sure those bullies grew up to be Republicans, Chris. At least the ones who are acting out today and getting all the headlines.

What really befuddles me are the seemingly reasonable conservatives that I thought I knew.....who for some reason have become venomous scaremongers....suddenly (four years ago) intent on seeing the deconstruction of our society for the sole purpose of proving that President Obama is.....a Muslim, a socialist, Hitler, the Anti-Christ.....that he promoted "death panels" to oversee healthcare, was not born in the US, has a poor school record, plans to bleed the economy dry, wants to takes away our guns...the list goes on and on.

Yes, a lot of this character and motive destruction started when the GOP tried to get rid of Bill Clinton (that worked all real well, didn't it?), but from the time Obama began his run for President and throughout the last four years the attacks have become CRAZY and more CRAZY.

So is this what the GOP or the conservatives who populate the Republican party wants to be know for? THE PARTY OF CRAZY????

Or you could have grown up in small town America where being different and standing out meant no small amount of harassment by bullies with small minds (are there any other kind?)But my brother had the best girlfriends! Another perk of being gay... When I say girlfriends, I mean that in the sense of girls who had backbone and the good sense to see that my brother was an amazing person who happened to be gay. Which had the unfortunate effect of making the bullies that much madder and meaner than they already were.

Multiple advantages...right Willam? Oh I love that part of the movie....Kevin Kline is a fantastic dancer...don't you think? I like him in just about everything he's been in but that is one of my favorites.

Well, you know gay kids get all the best bullies.

Straight kids have to settle for second-rate bullying.

There. My secret is out. I am gay just for the countless advantages it brings to me…. Now everybody knows it!

And since we sharing secrets.. it is part of the “gay life style” to make sure we make an old whit folk miserable a day… we have quotas, you know?

The length of some people’s stupidity is just mind blowing….

Penny, I love that movie. It is so funny.. Especially the scene where he is dancing on "I will survive"….

Poor old straight losers.....not a thing going for us.

I just saw the last half of the movie "In and Out" with Kevin Kline, Joan Cusak, Tom Selleck, Wilford Brimley and Debbie Reynolds.

www.imdb.com/title/tt0119360/

www.youtube.com/watch?v=3tiTWGVwHp8

Do any of you remember that movie...from 1997? Do you remember the part at towards end when Kevin Kline's student and family show their support by standing up and declaring themselves gay?

To think that that movie was a bit of a breakthrough for it's time is unbelievable now.

Yep...heterosexuals can't seem to catch a break, esp. if they are old, white and conservative. A dying breed...or is that wishful thinking on my part?

Here's news - gays have it better than everyone else.

" Being gay is not only a bonus for humans these days, it is a definite plus for dogs as well. As for straights, the lonely and the disabled, that’s another story altogether."

Yup. Poor, oppressed straight white men. They've got it so bad.

The inmates have taken over the asylum!

OR...they are trying to. What, pray tell, can be done about it? We are witnessing the unravelling of a political party. A party so uptight and bound by it's religious right that all we can do is watch in amazement at one implosion after another...and ask as Willam has "is this a joke?"

The only way they will get the message is for the country to let them know one vote at a time. I can tell you that my son and daughter and their friends see how scary this stuff is and are starting to realise just how important their vote is and the implications for our country if they don't actively participate.

Yea...the loonies are running the Republican party, but the up side to that is they are waking up our youth to the very real danger that exists if they don't let their voices be heard.

If it wasn't for the fact that I hate the cold, I'd have moved from the South years ago.

Redneck, in-bred, racist, close-minded clowns.

Teachers have always been like police officers and the clergy. We've always told our children to trust these people if they are in danger or have problems they can't discuss at home.

Who can our children trust? Who do they go to when they feel bullied or threatened?

Why would a state govt that refuses to pay their teachers comensurate to their current responsiblities and the ones they keep forcing on them while expecting them to be babysitters, psychologists, enforcers, etc?

I'm not sure why anyone would want to be a teacher when the school boards, the State and Federal govt make their job so difficult.

Unless a student confides in a teacher or counselor, then they're obligated to out the student to their parents.

thinkprogress.org/lgbt/2013/01/30/1514051/
dont-say-gay-tennessee/?mobile=nc


The Tennessee "Don't say gay" bill is back, reintroduced by the bill's original author.

Now, in addition to the prohibitions on speech imposed on teachers and counselors in Tennessee schools, it includes an obligation for any teacher approached by a student to inform their parents or guardians.

Because that always ends so well.

Ah, Republican "freedom." You're free to be - exactly what we want you to be. Don't color outside the lines. Don't even think about being yourself - or the "freedom" collective will ensure you are properly punished.
