    She needs to turn in her vagina so a real lesbian can make some use of it. Then she should take a strap on and go fuck herself.

    Jordan, a lesbian, created controversy on November 6, 2013, when she voted against a bill to grant marriage equality to gay and lesbian couples. Despite her no vote, the bill passed. It needs one more House vote for final approval. It is believed Jordan is the first openly LGBT legislator in the U.S. to ever vote against marriage equality for LGBT citizens

    75 percent of her constituents support marriage equality

    She absolutely should be prevented from parading officially during pride....

    "No, nobody’s going to beat me up. Nobody’s going to throw me out of my (LGBT) community — I’m not quite sure of that…"

    Maybe she's not a one issue voter, or there was an amendment that she couldn't vote for.

    You make me embarrassed to be an American, with your hatred of anyone who doesn't vote the way you think they should. Please try and replace all that hate in your heart with understanding and tolerance.

    I'd like to see a link to one of the local news organizations to get the rest of the story, as the sources cited so far are extremely biased.

    Something embarrasses you? Which you would that be? Freak.

    "...When I stepped into this position, as an appointee in January 2011, I felt I wasn’t worthy of being here. Because you’ve got lawyers, really brilliant people with huge college degrees. And this and that—whew, I’m just Jo from Waianae and I’ve got some street smarts and a fast mouth."

    Apparently she never heard of proposing amendments, affecting the specific parts of the bill to which she objected. Or about compromise, because no legislation is ever perfect to every member of the chamber, or else little would ever get passed.

    A person who is a seasoned legislator & politician, not someone appointed with "street smarts and a fast mouth" understands these principles. And that subsequent bills to correct any problems that might arise with the original legislation can later be passed. The important thing here was to pass a landmark bill that'll finally bring marriage equality to Hawaii, when the circumstances were finally favorable after previous failures to pass this.

    Instead she'll go down in history as the lesbian who voted against gay marriage, and who will still be on the losing side anyway. Of bills like this and of history. So much for street smarts.

    The_Quest saidin case you thought she's alone,there's these whole lot of educated homosexuals who doesn't agree with every government or mainstream millionaire gay groups decisions icon_wink.gif

    check this facebook group and you'll know.

    https://www.facebook.com/groups/445317630245/

    And are you gay yourself? In your RJ profile, under GUYS I'M LOOKING TO MEET you wrote "don't suck dicks". icon_question.gif

    Despite your contentions, we gays DON'T usually agree with many government decisions on gay civil rights, since in the past the majority of US government entities at local, state & federal level have been anti-gay. And most states are still officially & legislatively opposed to gay civil rights. So your statement there is simply wrong, or at best confused.

    Furthermore, I didn't know we gays had "millionaire gay groups" guiding our actions. Rather, unlike the false claims of the corporate-sponsored Teabaggers, gay rights has been a true grass roots movement from the very beginning. From the spontaneous Stonewall riots, to the first gay pride demonstrations and parades, this has been about gay people power.

    And if we've banded together and organized to the point where we do have national organizations with real budgets, like HRC, Equality and others, it's because we created them ourselves. They weren't handed to us and funded by the likes of the Koch brothers and other corporate interests.

    But given your profile, I remain intrigued about your own position on gay civil rights. Are you for them or against them? And if for them, you certainly wouldn't approve of the legislator in Hawaii voting against them, would you?

    It appears that gay marriage has hit a legal roadblock in Hawaii just like it did in Illinois. Oh well, there is next year to try again. Looks like both Hawaii and Illinois are in the balance over this issue.

    Someone wrote in another topic that you (Deco) were in denial about your sexual orientation for most of your life. I find it interesting that you begin your response to this guy with heavy handed interrogation style tactics designed to intimidate the guy:

    Why don't you take a sedative and reflect back on your own life of hiding in the closet for all those decades. And don't try the old "I honestly didn't know I was gay" shtick. That will only work on the clueless out there.

    Or the clueless who wouldn't know who you really are, referencing matters that predate your membership here of less than a month.

    You really can't resist a personal attack on me, can you? But in doing so you always blow your cover, it's your Achilles heel. Let's see, here's your pattern in your short time here, pending your banning for the umpteenth time:

    - ad hominem attacks (and on others here besides me)
    - gross misrepresentations of facts
    - knowledge of RJ forum threads long before you joined
    - gay-hostile positions
    - anti-Obama obsession

    OK, kids, now who does THIS sound like? No shouting it out! Write your answers down here -

    What roadblock?

    It just passed the House last night and will go back to the Senate for approval of the House changes then the governor will sign it. It is pretty much a done deal. Hawaii becomes the 16th State to legalize marriage equality.

    What are you talking about? That tru aussie guy wrote all about you this morning.

    Now please apologize for being so hard on "The Quest" guy because you of all people should be tolerant and understanding of those who may not be 100000% gay 24/7/365 or fall into the typical gay stereotypes.

    It's too bad President Obama has left a basic human right up to each individual state to decide for themselves. Kind of the way slavery was dealt with until the mid 20th century.
