    Because some people say things better than I can. This is awesome.

    Strong language, but Dan makes a very good point. :)

    I just want to know when these people decided they wanted to be straight.

    No camera crew...I'm sure Herman would prefer to keep it on the downlow.

    If I were a woman, I'd be the biggest slut on the planet. :)

    I'm so ashamed Herman Cain is from my state. He's such a troll.

    If Cain or Bachmann become president, I'm out.

    Not to be crude, but you don't choose what gives you a woodie. If Cain is too ignorant to understand this basic concept, then it makes me wonder how many other subjects is he equally ignorant on? Between this and his ignorant assumption that he would be able to railroad his massive 9-9-9 tax code change through in only 90 days, I have no confidence in him.

    Then again, some of us are bisexual. Bi's have a difficult time understanding monosexuals. Cain seems to be telling us that he is bi.

    But, even then, to what extent is "choice" a factor? What if I find redheads or Indians or slightly-overweight people attractive? How do I "decide" who I am going to get down with?

    What Cain is saying is that homosexuality is wrong, so if you swing that way, just sublimate your urges and go through life asexually so that you are not disturbing the decent folk. Masturbate to your perverted fantasies, but just stay off the wrong sort of people.

    Because, after all, there is just not enough oppression and misery in this wonderful world, we have to add this bit in insure that there is.

    ^ Add to this that you cannot "choose" who you're attracted to but you can "decide" wether you want to pursue them sexually or romantically. I think that is what Cain is getting at while confusing his terminology.

    Cain seems unable to distinguish banging someone and being sexually attracted to someone. One is a choice the other not so much.

    I personally would love to see someone debate Alan Keyes on gay marriage, now that would be interesting

    From what I hear - you are already!!! :eek: :p :D



    Edit: Gay affectional preference is no more a choice than being straight is a choice. Engaging in gay sex does not necessarily mean one is gay. It is the affectional component the defines affectional preference.

    It's mind boggling that this is still even an issue (or a potential campaign issue). Let people do what they wish in their private lives, especially if it affects no one but themselves. 2 guys or girls being attracted to eachother does not redefine or affect straight relationships in any way. It's almost as if people being gay is haunting these people to the point they can't let it go. It's just plain weird and unhealthy.

    Si.

    A stiff pecker knows no conscience.

    A little fart I used to target-shoot with, frequented a steam bath in Toronto.

    When he was chilling afterwards on a table, a young lad would often come in, lift the sheet and perform a service for him.

    He would obligingly pat them on the head when the deed was done.

    He was married, with 2 kids.

    I'd have to say that the only thing this proves is that immature vulgarity is one of Dan Savage's ideas of an argument.

    I'm not condoning Herman Cain and in fact I don't really know much about him but I will say that I wouldn't want Dan Savage siding for my cause if this is how he handles it.

    Is that a promise? Somehow I doubt that.

    More like a hope. Thankfully, neither of them have a good chance. They just dig their holes deeper whenever they talk.
