    The first step for Christian conservatives to win the war against the gay movement is to rebrand the terms, said a few panelists at this weekend's The Awakening conference at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va.

    "'Gay' is a left-wing socio-political construct designed to create grounds for fundamental rights [based on] whimsical capricious desires," said Ryan Sorba.

    Why are these people obsessing over this, unless they have some fear of gays, some reason they have within themselve to have to fight it.and I cannot help but think that people who go to this length have a personal problem or they would not be threatened by Gays. I think this guy would have much rather chose to call us queers, so he could take us all back to the 50's and before.

    My other question is, why do such a large share of these idiots have to come from my home state of Virginia. LOL !!!

    If you didn't notice, Ryan Sorba is the same guy who was booed off of stage at CPAC for making anti-gay statements.

    Does anybody NOT like the word queer besides me? ....Why would anyone refer to themselves as queer. I mean I like the idea of what I heard gender queer means...I just don't like the term.

    And I agree though that gay means too many things to too many people. But I don't agree at all with where he is coming from in his ideas.

    what i don't understand is that, if he believes what he believes, why does he take teams and fight someone about it? if he's right the world would naturally take the direction he's suggesting. if homosexuality didn't have a place in society it would've fallen through already, it would make people unhappy and they'd be done with it because there's no benefit to it unless you really feel the need to be that close with a man.

    Homosexuality definately has a place in evolution. I personally believe it evolved during early human-times when we were still hunting and gathering. It provided cohesion/comraderie and bonding between the men.

    That's what I think and I'm sticking to it. Why the hell else would it be around..

    Plus variety is the spice of life. And people who deviate slightly from the norm tend to be more creative, aesthetic, leader types.

    Hmmm...that's an interesting thought about homosexuality.

    I usually claim it's natural in that, it is a means to control human populations.

    Yes, gay people can have children...however it requires us to do something beyond what is natural to our sexual orientation.

    Sodomy? Wouldn't sodomy apply to any semi-skilled, non-vanilla heteros and not just gay people?

    They can take away gay, but it will never take away our identity. In fact, I feel us real gays, the ones who have never played in a vagina, should have an identity of our very own; we deserve this.

    Yes I have power over my body. But nothing with in me wants any sexual interaction with the opiset sex; yukky, yuk.

    Well, straight means a lot of things to many people. Everything from Ozzie and Harriet and the Cleavers from Leave it to Beaver to Ozzie and the Osbournes.

    I don't like the term queer either.


    "queer (kwîr)
    adj. queer·er, queer·est
    1. Deviating from the expected or normal; strange: a queer situation.
    2. Odd or unconventional, as in behavior; eccentric. See Synonyms at strange.
    3. Of a questionable nature or character; suspicious.
    4. Slang Fake; counterfeit.
    5. Feeling slightly ill; queasy.
    6. Offensive Slang Homosexual.
    7. Usage Problem Of or relating to lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, or transgendered people.
    n.
    1. Offensive Slang Used as a disparaging term for a homosexual person.
    2. Usage Problem A lesbian, gay male, bisexual, or transgendered person.
    tr.v. queered, queer·ing, queers Slang
    1. To ruin or thwart: "might try to queer the Games with anything from troop movements . . . to a bomb attack" (Newsweek).
    2. To put (someone) in a bad position."


    ..I think being gay or Bi is as normal as normal can be, just like straights. They're just not considered as societal norms due to fear and bigotry. Or, homophobia and homobigotry.

    Our percentage in the human race will always be small, but so are a lot of other traits, like very blond hair with brown eyes, or very dark skin with the most brilliant of green or blue eyes.

    Quite wonderful, really.

    The guy talking is seriously GAY even if we don't want him to be.

    "Over 8% have experimented" he says. "And damn it when can I"? He's thinking

    Yet another closet dude who feels the need to prove his "straightness" by pushing more anti-gay shit.

    Those sort of people don't deserve any attention -- and they don't get all that much. Notice the meeting is held in a small classroom -- very telling. Ryan Sorba is pathetic. He doesn't speak for the majority of straight people, and he certainly doesn't speak for the Republican party. He's in a dwindling minority, reduced to whining in small classrooms.

    Done.

    From now on, instead of saying gay, I'll say human.
    Marriage equality for humans.
    Pride events for humans.

    Since I'm now using the word human instead of gay, I'll need to use a different word instead of human for the people who are against gays. Neanderthal seems to fit.

    But if you do that, you might be insulting Persons of Neanderthal Descent, or worse, risking a lawsuit from the Neanderthal Defense League.

    That's the beauty of it. The persons of Neanderthal descent are the very same ones that deny evolution exists. They either have to acknowledge that evolution happened and is happening or they can't get upset at the label. They just can't have it both ways.
