Cop marries ex-Marine

Detective David Currie, 50, and his now-husband Aaron Woodard, 33, tied the knot shortly after midnight on Tuesday, the 7th [Jan 7, 2015], when the state [Florida] legalized gay marriage.

And after requesting permission from his superiors, Currie walked down the registry aisle with full support of the Broward County Sheriff’s to wed in uniform.

All the conservative True Believers in Florida must have their shorts in a truly world-class bunch over this. Meanwhile, a couple of people who love each other get to live a legally married life together.

I recall when a photograph like that would have been very shocking. I'm not so shocked anymore but I still get a visceral surge of disgust at images of two men engaging in romance or sex. Everybody's sex life is their own business as far as I am concerned, and I really have no hatred of gays I just am not attracted to men sexually, and I just don't get how they do what they do, it gives me the creeps. There's no beauty in it for me, and it feels wrong. My younger brother was gay, and he's now passed away, but he never seemed repulsed by images of heterosexual activity in the same way I am repulsed by homosexual images. That makes it even more difficult to relate to and understand, but my brother was gay from a very young age and I am sure that the inclination is genetic and natural.

Homosexuality, if it ever goes rampant, could save the Earth. Think about it.

For some reason, this photo does not repulse me. It's because I want to be there when that happens.

I don't want to be anywhere around that detective and his grown-up twinkie.

You are correct, of course, otherwise it would not be an inclination. If it were a choice, you could then ask yourself the question, "When did I decide to be straight?".

Boy Scouts president warns that ban on gay leaders threatens organization

Image

The president of the Boy Scouts of America urged the organization Thursday to reconsider its blanket ban on gay leaders, saying scouting must keep up with the times on the issue or face “the end of us as a national movement.”

Robert M. Gates, the former defense secretary who was elected president of the Scouts last year, warned attendees of a national annual meeting in Atlanta that the long-standing ban on gay scout leaders would inevitably provoke legal challenges unless it were changed. He suggested steps to avert what could be an existential threat to the storied organization.

“We must deal with the world as it is, not as we might wish it would be,” said Gates, who oversaw the end of the military’s ban on open service by gays and lesbians while he was at the Pentagon. “The status quo in our movement’s membership standards cannot be sustained.”

Gates’s remarks come at a pivotal time for the century-old organization, which did away with its ban on openly gay youth two years ago and has come under increasing pressure to change its policy toward gay adults. Gay rights advocates said they viewed Gates’s comments as a strong signal that the Boy Scouts would adjust its policy soon, perhaps within the year.

The Scouts have held fast to the ban over the years, even as homosexuality and same-sex marriage have increasingly come to be accepted by the broader American public. The policy has remained in place in part because of the strong influence of faith communities on scouting. About 70 percent of Boy Scouts belong to troops sponsored by Mormon, Catholic or other churches.

If you didn't feel disgust you might be afraid that you were gay instead. You and I were youngsters in a world that hated male gays and there's still a lot of it around. How often do you hear about female gay bashing? There's a massive historical demon at the heart of male insecurity relating to sexuality.

He didn't grow up with broad social disapproval of heterosexuality.

This is just a ridiculous idea. What are you - fourteen?

For some reason? They are both women and you're attracted to women. And there's nowhere near the same historical repugnance of female homosexuality.

Very broad minded - not - for one so vocal about his fears for the future.

I think he's saying more homosexuals=less children=no more overpopulation.

That was the obvious thought that I had, too.

Meanwhile…


Ireland goes to polls on historic vote on same-sex marriage

Dublin, Ireland (CNN) — Polls opened Friday in Ireland for a landmark vote on whether to change its constitution to allow same-sex marriage.

If the referendum is passed, Ireland will become the first country in the world to adopt same-sex marriage through a popular vote.

Ireland's voters will be asked to approve this statement: "Marriage may be contracted in accordance with law by two persons without distinction as to their sex."

If more say "yes" than say "no," the change to the constitution will give gay and lesbian couples the right to civil marriage, but not to be wed in a church.

Thanks for the psychological dissection of my of my post there, polydigm. You must be as bored as I am and I might as well be fourteen.

If guys married guys and girls married girls there would be fewer births, yep that's what I mean. The people that grow up in that future time will be accepting of male to male affection, but will they find it beautiful? Do women get off thinking about two guys doing it like I get off thinking about two girls? Do some guys pursue their homosexual side because they can't make it with the ladies? Hell I don't know.

Bored? Do you want the world to change just because you're bored or do you really believe there are fundamental reasons why it needs to change? You expressed some attitudes that I myself have had to battle with and I just expressed my opinion. It has nothing to do with being bored. And you were already psychologically dissecting yourself, I just tried to point out there might be another way to interpret the situation.

A rope leash then wrote:

Guy/guy couples can adopt or use surrogates, girl/girl couples can borrow a guy or use sperm donation. It will make no difference to birth rate in itself.

Maybe there is some genetic/instinctive element in men leading to the abhorrence of seeing two men in that way, maybe it's because men are more readily visually stimulated and thus more turned off by the opposite of what stimulates them. But what leads certain men to bash homosexuals to death believing they're justified is surely something to abhor infinitely more than the thought of what two consenting males might be getting up to in private.

Are you against gay marriage?

No, I'm against marriage.

As a religious concept I guess it's okay. Why the government has to grant a license for it is beyond me.

No really why should two people spend all that wedding money and emotional currency in an effort to bind themselves together forever? So they can officially make babies in the name of god and the law? True love exists I'm sure but it doesn't require an expensive ceremony.

So this is what I guess I can't get used to, is two guys raising a baby. My brother had a steady lover and he was crazy about him like I was crazy about that redheaded night-stalking slut I used to know. They lived together but I don't know that I had ever heard them talk about having kids.

My mother and father would smooch from time to time and it would kind of make us kids squirm but we took it as natural. Will the "children of gay people" see dad and dad smooching as natural, and assume that they will grow up to do the same? What I'm saying is will more gay parents make more gay kids and therefore more gay people?

I'm sure some scientist has the answer somewhere. Hell I don't know.

Attend courses in Family Law and Probate Law, and you may then understand why it's necessary. :)

The majority of gay people in the world grew up with heterosexual parents. I assume your gay brother saw your parents smooching as well?

He was gay from a young age. If two males kissing was the norm when he was young, he would have come out much sooner. I think such experiences at very young ages would have to influence people, the tendencies are genetic, but they aren't always raging. My brother was rather manly, and no one in the family ever suspected he was gay. I suppose it would have been different if homosexuality was accepted back then, which is the point I am trying to make about the future, maybe more kids will "decide" they are gay. Not that it's a strict choice, but I am sure that a lot of people could lean either way and early influences are key.

Yes, Mr. Nice Guy, the law. Why would you want to tie your relationship to the law? Write a will.

Yes, birth is a young age.

Gay Marriage Appears Headed for Approval in Ireland

Image
A couple embraced in Dublin on Saturday, where opinion polls and high turnout favored a yes vote on the same-sex marriage referendum.

DUBLIN — Ireland appeared poised on Saturday to become the world’s first nation to approve same-sex marriage by a popular vote, with early vote counts showing strong and broad support for a measure that would have been unthinkable just a few years ago in what traditionally had been a Roman Catholic stronghold.

Not long after counting began at Dublin Castle, a government complex that was once the epicenter of British rule, the leader of the opposition, David Quinn, the director of the Iona Institute, conceded the outcome in a tweet: “Congratulations to the Yes side. Well done.”

Both proponents and opponents said the only remaining question was the size of the victory for approval. Ronan Mullen, an Irish senator and one of only a few politicians to oppose the measure, predicted the win would be “substantial.” The official results will be announced this afternoon.

The referendum changes Ireland’s Constitution so that marriages between two people would be legal “without distinction as to their sex.”

We are born with tendencies. Everyone is at least a little bit gay. Even Jaypfunk. Sexuality is partly determined by environment.

Go to bad prison and find out. From what I hear, you will fight it or you won't. Ever go online and find images of urban gang thugs sucking each other off? Photos are available, and you can't tell me these guys want to be known as "gay". They're just doing what they have to do on the inside. Does it mean they were born homosexual? No, it means they were forced to live in an environment where it was gay sex or no sex.

I'm not saying people "choose" to be gay. I'm saying some people choose to have gay sex because it's all the sex they can get. To say that we are born gay or not simply due to genetics would not be correct. We are born with propensities. Genetics is almost never cut and dried when it comes to behaviors.

Look at certain porn stars. Some gals will have sex with other gals no problem, and others must get used to the idea. Some refuse outright. The hero John Holmes did lots of gay movies...that's how he got AIDS...but he wasn't born "gay", he just had a job to do and bills to pay and one hole gets to be about the same as all holes after a while, I suppose.

My brother used to say he probably wouldn't mind prison, and that girls were just too much of a pain in the ass to deal with. All that easy gay sex is how he wound up with HIV/AIDS, but that's another issue. He was right, girls are a pain in the ass, but I imagine anal sex is, too. At least the first time...
