    To anyone who's ever felt loveless, I want to share that I felt that way too... until I learned exactly what love, loving, self worth and self reliance means. I want my gay community to stand tall and be strong. I want you guys and a few ladies to face adversity, come out swinging and eventually rise victorious.

    To make you feel my love... because I believe in you. I believe in us and our eventual success in creating unquestionable equality.
    When you're feeling like the world has you by the balls, I want you to know that someone out there....maybe a family member, friend, or a complete stranger loves you for exactly who you are.

    We do need to stay strong not only for ourselves, but for the younger Glbt people who need our advice and protection right now.
    Thank you very much! icon_biggrin.gif

    I couldn't agree more. Though progress seems slow, it's happening. I am confident that our actions provide a stepping stone, a foundation to the advancement of future generations in achieving complete equal rights.

    Someone awesome in my youth provided me with counsel when I was lost. In High School I had straight jocks vouch for me and stand up for me when I was confronted with bigotry.

    Their actions contributed to a stronger and more secure sense of self. I hope to repay the world and these people by passing it forward and in turn helping other gays in hopes of strengthening the our community.

    itsmourning saidYou know as well as anyone else that this is a colossal load of bs.


    And you seriously expect us to believe that you are not a troll?

    "In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking other users into a desired emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion."

    In this case you are being inflammatory and trying to rubbish the OP´s efforts.

    You are really obvious and inept.

    You clearly just have a problem with the truth.

    And I'm not particularly concerned with what you believe. I wasn't speaking to you to begin with.



    You're like the lamest troll ever. You really need to go through a refreshment course in trolling.

    Just saying it's bs doesn't add anything, instead, try something like this:

    "YOU ARE ALL GONNA BURN IN HELL YOU FUCKING HOMOS DAMN RIGHT YOU FEEL UNLOVED CAUSE THE LORD HATES YOU JUST LIKE HE HATED ME WHEN HE GAVE ME CANCER BUT THEN MY DAD DIED AND I REPENDED MY SINS AND NOW IM MARRIED WITH 2 METH ADDICTED KIDS AND DID I SAY YOU ALL BURN IN HELL AND YOU DONT KNOW WHO I KNOW I GOT CONNECTIONS IN HOLLYWOOD YOU BITCHES AND JESUS HATES YOU AND I HATE YOU AND OH BTW DID I MENTION YOURE ALL GOING TO BURN IN HELL I JUST WROTE A SONG ABOUT IT"

    Ok, so that's how you troll, or as we call it here, "pulling a Stuart".

    You, are just a party pooper. So get lost.

    I wonder how long it will be before the WBC copies this post and puts it on a sign for a protest. icon_lol.gif

    This statement is your problem and why people have jumped all over you. The OP was posting his positive and heartfelt message and you had to go and ruin it. This wasn't a thread for criticism or debate. We have many of those here and there's nothing wrong with that. If you didn't like it, then just leave the thread instead of posting your negativity. It was totally unnecessary here.

    It doesn't take too much courage to be mean when posting from a profile void of pics and info, now does it?


    I couldn't agree more...this guy has done NOTHING positive since he joined RJ... instead of leaving this thread...why not just GO AWAY FOREVER!!
    We already have our quota of assholes on here....no room for another one!!!

    The problem is that I'm not trolling. I never labeled myself a troll, you did, so how are you going to hold me responsible for a definition and expectation of trolling that I never took on?

    Exactly. You are dismissed.


    Since when do trolls get to label themselves?

    If that were the case....

    Hmmm it's not Stuart himself, cause this one uses punctuation marks.

    Ignoring them is kinda boring though, it's fun to poke trolls and watch em bark

    Nice post tang. sorry others had to try to ruin it with immaturity. icon_confused.gif

    *quick edit for the trolls*

    I just got to thinking after reading the memorial thread to the kids who committed suicide. Its people like you who when others need to be uplifted that cause our fellow gay brothers and sisters to do such acts.
    Tang I applaud you to reachin out to those who need it, and I wonder if those kids had more people or even just at least one person in their lives like you would they still be alive.

    This was so beautiful and I'm sending this to a friend in need of some comfort right now.

    And to the trolls condemning this wonderful, uplifting contribution.....Go away! You are not welcome here now and in the future.
