Hey, I have a question like that, too!


Gaze on this, if you can:

A truly pointless poll

Should homosexuals be given the same special rights extended to African-Americans and other minorities?

Oooooh, oooooh, can I play, too? How about:

Should people who are cripplingly superstitious, worship a 2,000-year-old religion and take seriously things like talking snakes, burning bushes that speak and magic crackers be allowed the same rights as the rest of us, such as voting, and being allowed to procreate?

I like my question better.

Wow, and here I thought racism was dead (snort). It's been a hell of a thing to see the masks come off in the past few months.

No kidding. Good, I suppose, that they are finally admitting what we knew all along.

Despite being a devout atheist, I feel it is my duty to point these guys to Matthew 25.

I mean, I don't expect them to listen to the likes of me, of scientists, but one would expect them to listen to, you know, the actual god-man they claim to worship and follow.

Anyone think this resurgent racism is connected to the present economic downturn? I don't know, but I can speculate. Same thing with a national lynch mob going after that NB principal. Something ugly is bubbling and bursting forth with rather too much frequency these days.

African-Americans and other minorities have special rights? Wow, I learn something new every day.

Man, some people just can't take the discovery that they're no longer special at all well.

if all them funny types get special rights y'all, does that mean we has to calls them homosexual-americans?

"Special rights"?! "Extended to..."

Are they shitting me? Sadly, no.

OMG. I can't even think of snark good enough for this.

A right is "special" when it's one that never had to be protected for white, heterosexual, Christian males. So pay equity is a special right, because it protects the rights of women, and equal marriage laws are special rights because no one ever tried to keep white, heterosexual Christians from marrying. And obviously those laws prohibiting discrimination on the basis of race in housing and employment weren't needed for white Christian males, so they're special rights too.

Funny isn't it, how a majority posessing power doesn't need special rights?

Against my better judgment I watched a few seconds of their little movie - the poor dears said they had their pictures taken, and were handcuffed, and were finger printed....

Oh the --ing horror.

Welcome to the world of civil action ladies, if you'd been assaulted with water canons, or tear gassed, or chased down a dark street by some angry Gatineau riot cop wearing steel toe boots and waving a big --ing baton over his head yelling out everything he was gonna do to me after...... but I digress.

Come talk to me when you're really being treated unfairly girls, until then suck it up already, that's the price you pay if ya wanna play.

Well ya know, they were letting blacks and whites marry in Hawaii back in 1961 and you know how that turned out. Next thing you know it'll be the gays' turn to be in the White House.

It's hard to let go of entitlement.

and does abolition count as a "special right" for them, or a loss of my rights?

You should have watched more of it. They've discovered and exposed the the "secret gay agenda," which apparently was documented in the book After the Ball: How America Will Conquer Its Fear and Hatred of Gays in the 90's.

Shocking!

I read that book when it came out in the 90s. The books goal was to reshape public opinion to reduce bigotry in an organized way.
