“I don't understand the term "gay mafia." The mafia kills, steals, assaults people, cheats the government, and extorts money from people. Is this so-called gay mafia doing any of these things?”

“It's just another bullying, derogatory term that he can still get away with saying, until I find myself a horse's head.”

“Consider the shows of the Aussie Chris Lilley. Granted, Australians don't have a checkered past with blackface the way that Americans do, but somehow when Chris Lilley did blackface on his show "Angry Boys", or Polynesianface on "Summer Heights High", it wasn't offensive. Perhaps it's because he wasn't making fun of people of those races, but rather creating fully realized characters.”

“That's fine. Most places still use a PG/VG mix, but I've seen a few where, for maybe a dollar more a bottle, you get vegetable glycerine only. I've used both and can't tell the difference.”

“It's ridiculous that they want to ban flavors of E-cigs. It's assuming that adults would only like something that tastes like ash. I've never been a smoker in my entire life, but ever since my wife purchased an E-cig, I took up vaping. No nicotine in mine, but I enjoy the flavors. I like being able to taste coffee, chocolate, pizza, etc. without the calories. The rationale behind it is asinine. There are candy and cake flavored vodkas that are so smooth that you can't even taste the alcohol in them, which can make things dangerous for an inexperienced and young drinker, yet no one is up in arms to ban them.

I also know quite a few people who have quit smoking using E-cigs. Not the disposable ones, but the refillable ones where you can constantly tamp down the nicotine levels. Some of them are now on 0% nicotine, and just continue to use it out of habit. (My aunt, who had to quit smoking for her kidney transplant, is one of them.) They can be of great help to people, and save them a lot of money in the long run too.”

“Yeah I googled e-juice after I posted that and found out that some do only use glycerin. Sometimes forethought is useful assuming I can remember do use it.

“I have cousins in this same predicament who had to do the same thing. Their adopted daughter had RAD, was dangerous to the whole family, it was unworkable, and after trying for eleven years, they had to give her back. They tried everything. Don't be so judgmental when you haven't been there yourself.”

“We had a child like this in our family. Cousins of ours adopted a toddler and tried their hardest with her for eleven years. She was violent, trying to kill their other child and filing false charges with CPS against my cousins (she acknowledged they were false.) She told my cousins that if they didn't allow her to do what she wanted, she would accuse my cousin's husband of molesting her, so they had to give her back when she was thirteen. It was terrible, but it happens sometimes.”

“Before I got with my wife Cindy, not only did I never think I would get married, I didn't want to get married. I didn't think it was for me. With her, my life is better. She completes me and makes me want to be a better person and achieve greater things. Everything I do, I do for her. I've never known such love and happiness before. I can say that our relationship and marriage seems much happier than those of most of the heterosexual people we know, even a lot of people in our own family. I don't think we are perfect or anything, we just love each other and are very compatible, and our senses of humor compliment each other.”

“To be president (of this country at least), you need a certain amount of ruthlessness, and Jimmy Carter doesn't possess it. Doesn't make him a bad leader, just a not great leader of the US. I love him to pieces though, he is a true gem.”

“Ruthlelssness is a quality the right seems to admire, and it's true that Carter
doesn't have it. This is one of the major things the right disliked about him.
He's a fair minded and kind man. Too much so for his critics.”

“I don't see it as opportunistic because the "female or she-male" challenge didn't happen until this season. "You've got she-mail" isn't as bad as what happened in that episode. And I could not disagree more that drag is like wearing blackface. It isn't a performance that is inherently demeaning to women, the way that blackface is inherently demeaning to black people.”

“I will never forgive my bullies. My worst bully physically and sexually assaulted me, stalked me, threatened to "screw the lesbian" out of me (only he didn't use those words) and posted a manifesto online about how he was going to shoot up the school with me as his number one target. My school covered it all up. They knew it all and did nothing. So no, i will never forgive him for the PTSD he's given me, for the feeling of safety he took away, and the physical and emotional trauma he put me through. I still to this day look in the paper to see if he's raped and/or killed someone yet.”

“My aunt is one of these nuns. She is pro-choice, pro-contraception, pro-gay rights, and she wants women to have a larger role in the church.

She's gotten in trouble with the higher ups for her views, but the Catholic church is her church and she is doing her part to bring it into the modern age.”

“Hi Mindy! I'm saddened if any member of the LDS Church came across as intolerant. It is more that they revere traditional marriage and find it to have a unique and important value.”

“I would add that in the Prop 8 dust-up church leaders went around and arm-twisted their followers for the dough. They have an organization that puts big brother to shame. It's not PC to say they're a cult, but then again, I'm not PC.”
