Hi. I have an opinion about gay people and I really, really, really need validation because without the rush of endorphins I get from saying really stupid things that reap pages and pages of forum replies, I have nothing. So please argue with me and make me feel good about myself so that I don't have to look around me and see that I live with 6,000 cats, haven't shaved in months, and spend all my time drooling in front of my computer wearing no pants and rusting out my handy-dandy Cyberwarrior 500 Bedpan <snipped link>("the trolls best friend").
I'm alarmed by the number of felines you have, and frankly, I can't believe I haven't seen you on the "Animal Horders" TV show. You need HELP!! Pets are great, but they cannot replace close personal relationships with other humans. Also, it's unfair to the animals. You need to surrender 5,998 of your cats to local shelters and have the two cats you keep spayed or neutured.
Turning your back on and isolating yourself from humanity can have disastrous effects. In fact, some studies suggest that such behavior can cause homosexuality. Get professional help before this happens to you!
You are obviously gay. All persons who have a problem with homosexuals are closet homosexuals. That is why you quit shaving. You are resisting the compulsive neatness that your gayness demands (think Neil Patrick Harris). Embrace your identity and you will no longer need the comfort of 6,000 cats.
Can I have a problem with one gay person? Does that mean I'm gay? If I have a problem with terrorists, does that mean I'm secretly harboring terroristic tendencies? If I have a problem with my neighbor's dog? Slippery slope, that. That falls in the category of a "Logical Fallacy". If you aren't familiar with the spectrum of Logical Fallacies, google the term. It will definitely improve your ability to determine your stand from a more logical standing. Nothing worse than someone arguing in the forum with nothing but BS for ammo.
I believe it is unmanly to dislike dogs. I believe that because of a former neighbor who I suspected of letting his dog leave poop on my lawn and front walk. I suspected that because another neighbor told me that was what he was doing.
One day I arrived home at the right time to catch him and his dog in the act. I parked my car, got out and walked up to him as he tried to clean things up quickly and get out of my yard.
I said something like "I really don't like you bringing your dog here to poop"
Apparently he took that to mean that I don't like dogs. Well, that has some element of truth in it, but it gets complicated, so it isn't entirely right. I like well behaved dogs, though I think they should live in wide open country, not in the cities and suburbs.
However, this gentleman, not withstanding that he was picking up dog poop from the middle of my lawn and we both knew that the only reason he was picking it up was because I caught him, not withstanding that any other human would have been embarrassed and hurried away, this gentlemen gave me a withering look and said "There is something WRONG with people who don't like dogs!"
Oh well. I'm quite sure he meant that his dog was gay and thought this was the reason for my dislike. That had to be it, right?
Well, it seems I have the best solution for getting attention. I created a toilet for spammers and trollers. of course if you want to purchase this toilet, it is for sale. Just contact me through HubPages here.
Tsk DD - here we are going back and forth over a very serious subject and there you are playing with yourself. Which can cause blindness. Beware. Don't walk around when you're occupied - you might lose an eye.
happy to argue but you haven't said what your opinion is about gays? Or do we just assume what your position is and then argue against it?
In which case, er, I think you are mistaken. It's not often I take immediate offence at what I read on here, but if that's the reaction you were looking for then sorry to disappoint and hope you have a Happy New Year.
Like Mark Ewbie I have to take offence! Gay people were not made that way because of being denied peanut butter and jelly sandwiches as a kid. Lots of people with peanut allergies manage to grow up not gay, duh!
But SB... don't you realise that being gay is a lifestyle choice? And that with the right brainwashing, er, sorry - counselling, it's possible to cure gays of their nasty homosexual ways (and hence bring them back into God's favour, regardless of what they're like as a person)?
Oh yeah, and sorry I forgot - nobody talked about homosexuality in the animal world a century ago, therefore it didn't exist.
Shades - seeing all the needy forum topics popping up this Christmas makes me think of my lovely Grandad who suffers from the terrible combination of 'too much time on his hands' + 'access to 24 hour news' which = randomly sitting down, sighing loudly and saying 'I am just disgusted about....x,y,z' - for x,y,z substitute whatever non-even BBC News 24 has reported on in the last 5 mintues. Quite tempted to hook him up with my laptop and dump him in the religious forum - he would have soooo much fun.
Thanks for the concern Spacey - he or she (how can you tell?) is OK now after a course of Dr.Frikkers excellent pills. When I say Ok, strictly speaking he is now deceased, but at least our pain is over.
Re. your Grandad I am also disgusted by pretty much everything especially Shadesbreaths attitude towards the gay community - whatever it is.
We are often told not to feed the tolls, but how do you feed 6,000 cats every day. You would't be left with much trolling time after giving muchies to that lot And out of those 6,000 cats how many are gay ones?
LOL @ that, btw. Now I'm going to have to write another hub.
Yeah, he sounds like the kind of guy who could have a ball doing the online equivalent of yelling at kids to "GET OFF MY LAWN" all day. You should probably hook him up. I mean, hey, happiness is happiness right?
Honestly about real life stuff he is the happiest most easy going guy, but I swear there is something in those news reports. It is the tone of voice they use to say 'Elton John has become a father' which makes him believe they said 'Elton John sold the souls of a thousand grandmothers, and ate one hundred baby kittens, just so he could get a baby to keep in his understairs cupboard).
It's your dime. I'm just killing time waiting for my headache to go away. That other gay post with the stupid "research" pissed me off so I wrote this. Then Beth's comment made me write that, so, it's all good. Just a morning's amusement.
You write hubs as a means of morning amusement? Either you're (really) too young to have figured singular fun or you're too old and have given up trying to instigate some sort of response from Mrs Shades. I mean - even a smack up side the head is better than nuthin' right?
Or are you gay and in denial so use alternative methods of sole morning amusement?
The volume of my hangover precludes, uh, response seeking. Probably precludes responsiveness at all at least until the Advil kick in. (sigh). Too bad I didn't pick Quit Drinking as my New Year's resolution. Now I am stucking drinking all year until next year. Oh well.
Too bad you're stucking with it. Funnily enough I put Quit Not Drinking Enough Vodka on my mental resolution list. I like to think I was sensible to hell and back when I thought mine up and rated it at #5. However I have a sneaking suspicion it's actually in the #1 spot. Oh well.
Anyway - back on topic. You're so wrong about gays that you're moving into I'm gonna tell Maddie on you territory. I know I'm right because I've got all the facts to back me up. Only I'm not debating or nuthin' - just sayin' ... so I don't need to share squat.
And if you push me enough I'll start quoting irrelevant text from the Book of Frog.
I thought that according to the Book of Frog, anything you might do or say must be relevant with respect to the moment you say it. For instance, on the 659th page in the Book of Frog there is a Kobold that says, "Irrelevant I would not say, because that would show you my intentions." (And as we all know, the one who knows a Kobold's intentions can command the Kobold.)
Anyway, what this teaches to me is that anything you do or say must be borne out of a certain knowledge that you already have. That knowledge must be either in the present or must be recalled by something that is in the present. So if the knowledge that made you say what you said is connected to the present, than what you said is also somehow connected to the present, since it is obviously connected to the knowledge. And so it must be relevant.
See Haunty this is just a fine example of one persons interpretation of the Good Book being taken out of context.
"Irrelevant I would not say, because that would show you my intentions." means (and you can take it straight from the Mouth of Frog) this: (and ONLY this) my business is my own, bugger off and find someone else to gossip about
Ohhhhh how I suffer mules glady (and a range of other hybrid creatures) whilst trying to get the Good Word across. Blessed be those that live in ignorance for they know not what they screw [up].
Remember this Haunty - irrelevant is as irrelevant does. What's relevant to you may be irrelevant to me but then that's like saying your relevance is relegated below my irrelevance and that will result in you feeling anything but relevant in what otherwise may have been an irrelevant but elegant form of relative narrative.
And of course we both know that we're then moving into the Seven Deadly Things territory. And we can't have that now - can we?
So what's your take on this gay business then? What say you?
I haven't seen it yet Haunty. Perhaps I will. I'd really enjoy owning a product aimed at Cyberwarriors that tick me off. It's got to have the power to (virtually) poke and prod, (virtually) shout out 'oh for crying out loud' and have an optional (virtual) kick up the jacksy feature.
I'm supposing modern technology may well design one that allows the user (ME) to actually do all of the above. That would be nice *nods*
Shades, it is certainly immoral and probably illegal to have 6000 gay cats living together. Is such a marriage even legal in your state? Have you provided for spiritual counseling for them? Good questions, these, and I don't see any answers for them, hmmmm?
I have to disagree with ya there Shades. You must giv up ur evel ways and conver t to the Lord's way off live. Rember God loves u.
And I thought you have 8,000 cats? Is it because they are all gay and can't reproduce? You know if you were more dominant and embraced the Lord and ate peanut butter, you wouldn't have any gay dogs. And make sure you drive a stick shift car. But don't take my opinion. I did find the time to actually have a profile picture and do real research for my opinions.
Hey Shadesbreath, I actually found your post kind of funny. One thing that gay people can do is have the courage to laugh at themselves. But, I'm sure that your post had more to do with the zillion or so gay posts, that lead to 2 zillion hate and religious reply posts. As if we had the time to read them all.
So, I am I right by assuming that you submitted this post to prove your point, that gay posts get more attention at hubpages then something esle that you would rather talk about? If so, what is it? Or, is there already some post that you submitted that nobody has a reply for? So, you are going by what you think people want to hear?
At any rate, I would be much happier to reply to all the gay oriented posts, then the avalanche of why god hates everyone I don't approve of posts. Oh, and by the way, I counted my cats, and at last count I had zero. I did have two but they sadly died a few years ago. If I get to 6,000 I'll let you know, they need to be brave cats though to put up with my 2,000 dogs, and a breeding bull. The worst kind too! LOL!
LOL.... if he's just, uh, ... what's the omnivorous equivalent in sexuality... because, well, if his breeding bull is, omnisexual (that must be it), then those cats are in deep, deep trouble. One pump and it's goodbye... gay or straight.
okay I can't buy an opinion at this hour but here's the dealI HATE NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS, ALWAYS HAVE, THEY MAKE ME SICKOkay back to meI dare you to make 3 predictions instead for this year. They have to be...
If gays are a culture, then the gays population of the world is triple the population of Christian America.Why is there not a gay president or powers or other powers to stop allowing gays to be illegal in 80 countries....
