    So many of the biggest cheerleaders for the "ex-gay" movement are not even remotely attractive. What does that say about the gay community?

    I dunno, who are these ex-gay cheerleaders? What do YOU think it says about the gay community?

    haHA! Yeah, I second Red_Vespa's questions.

    Also a bit ironic and humorous that someone I don't personally find 'even remotely attractive' is questioning something seemingly unrelated to attractiveness based on the same measure of subjective interpretation. That's not to say that the pot can't question the kettle--and I certainly don't say that to be overtly mean--but what does attractiveness have to do with anything in relation to "ex-gays" or their vocal impact? icon_confused.gif

    It says absolutely nothing. You've said quite a bit about yourself though. Not sure if you meant to do that.

    OnTheWayToMe, seems as though this question was not thought of properly before putting it out there.

    I think he's threatening to spam us with ex-gay movement propaganda because no one will cam with him.

    As if a face pic with a big frown on it is gonna get anyone worked up.

    To be honest, I'm a bit clueless on the whole "ex-gay" movement. I didn't even know there was that type of movement. Hell, I guess there's a movement for everything these days....

    Apparently a few "ex-gays" have reverted back to their gay lifestyle, so are they unhappy being str8 and with who they really are?

    jprichva saidCome on, folks, I'm sure you've all gotten the point.

    OP, restated: "Ugly gays become ex-gay because no one in the superficial gay world loves them, since gays are hung up on beauty, muscles, and money. Why are gays so mean, and particularly, to me?"

    I believe I can answer the underlying question. People are mean to you because you are a black hole of negativity, a great sucking whirlpool of self-pity, a vast implosion of ego, and a crushing tsunami of excuses.

    You can be gorgeous on the outside but still a mess within (for examples, see above).


    LOL- you know you need a spanking, right icon_razz.gificon_biggrin.gif

    You haven't been around much have you? That's cool. We were all new once.

    Every so often he surfaces to complain about his looks, how he is unhappy about his weight, etc. Then people reach out to help, or to simply tell him he does have beauty. All of this only to have him argue, refute, and reject every last noble effort. A true wallower.

    Tom Katt is not ex-gay. He was probably bisexual. Ex-gays are people who advocate change of the gay orientation to straight via therapy and religion.

    So if you already knew this, then you got exactly what you wanted.

    We're the suckers, it would seem. Heh.

    hee-hee Scratching your head might be a sign of cooties! icon_lol.gif

    Notice that I used the word "I" which would relegate the thoughts I shared as mine alone. My inference was based on the irony of attractiveness (or lack thereof) having anything to do with vocal impact regardless of 'gayness.' Get it? icon_wink.gif

    This statement made me feel like you were categorizing the "gay community" as a bunch of egotistical, self-centered, vain brats. Maybe if you took a more gentle approach...?

    rel-e-gate
    –verb (used with object), -gat⋅ed, -gat⋅ing.
    1. to send or consign to an inferior position, place, or condition: He has been relegated to a post at the fringes of the diplomatic service.
    2. to consign or commit (a matter, task, etc.), as to a person: He relegates the less pleasant tasks to his assistant.
    3. to send into exile; banish.

    This is only one example of your misuse of words. There are many others.
    And as far as 'vocal impact' goes, this is complete gibberish.

    Mark Twain said that one of the most important rules of writing is to use the correct word, not its second cousin.


    Okay, I'll play your little game for a moment (and also add back in that part of the definition you selectively omitted)... icon_razz.gif

    rel-e-gate
    –verb (used with object), -gat⋅ed, -gat⋅ing.
    1. to send or consign to an inferior position, place, or condition: He has been relegated to a post at the fringes of the diplomatic service.
    2. to consign or commit (a matter, task, etc.), as to a person: He relegates the less pleasant tasks to his assistant.
    3. to assign or refer (something) to a particular class or kind.
    4. to send into exile; banish.

    Definition number three is the most apt for my usage: "which would relegate (assign or refer to) the thoughts I shared as mine (the particular class or kind) alone."

    And, because sharing is caring (hee-hee), 'vocal impact' would be the power of a verbalized (even if textualized) message. Perhaps looking up idiocy would be most helpful for you? icon_razz.gif

    id⋅i⋅o⋅cy  [id-ee-uh-see]
    –noun, plural -cies.
    1. utterly senseless or foolish behavior; a stupid or foolish act, statement, etc.
    2. Psychology. the state of being an idiot.

    Enough said. icon_wink.gif
