Oh, go easy on Nab. These days everything you say about LGBT will make you a biggot. People are really biggot-trigger-happy. Same with racism.

I think it’s a jolly good idea to require faggots to wear a tattoo. Perhaps a large “H” (for *bleep*) should be tattooed on their foreheads--- but on second thought, maybe not an “H” as that might be interpreted as “Heterosexual” or perhaps “Hologram” al la the schmeghead Rimmer in the Red Dwarf TV series. And as this is Canada, we should ensure that any letter be equally understood in either official language. This would eliminate the letter “Q” for queer and besides some of us are a bit peculiar (queer). “G” for gay has its own difficulties so I have decided that any letter is wrong for this and a more fitting symbol would be the rainbow flag. Of course, the rainbow flag is quite attractive and there may be a number of non gay people wearing it simply for its decorative qualities. I’ll have to give it a bit more thought.

Well, the Nazis used the pink triangle to identify anyone put into a concentration camp for homosexuality. The chaplain may wish to keep to the tradition of the Nazis before him.

Are there only two sides to this question in your view? Seems to me that is the opinion of many ..."Us" and "them". I have difficulty viewing the world in such black and white terms.

You are right Nabs. The world is anything but “black and white” and it is impossible to define "us" and "them". I suppose I was using the term in a general sense to (optimistically) apply to every one of us to challenge ourselves before buying into our stereotypical notions. And of course, that absolutely applyies to many more issues than just homosexuality. For soulra (often dividing people into groups of "us" and "them") to try and suggest anyone else is a bigot, for example, is laughable. Pot – meet kettle.

Would that mean said clergy members should have gay tattoos too? After all, they are diddling boys, not girls.


They save the girls for the nuns.

i think concentration camps is a good idea. then homosexuals can go there and have a lot of time to concentrate about how their choice has affected their freedom. and while they are there they can get homosexual tattoos like the priest said. then when they want to assimilate back into the majority they can go before the straight parole board and answer questions to see if they really are straight. dont bother saying it. like that dennis miller song about *bleep*. im a biggot.....and there isnt a damn thing you can do about it. lol

I really don't see how expressing anti-homosexual views has to do anything with nazism or fascism
(these are not synonyms, BTW). Not that I agree with the poster.

Do you know what most people tend to associate concentration camps with? Also, I regard someone who is a threat to my personal liberties as a fascist, so the terms are analogous in my mind.

I bet if the German Nazis were here today, they'd be all up for gay movement.
First, they claimed to be successors of Roman Empire. And we all know how tolerant they were of homosexuals. Second....just look at all the leather uniforms.

That's what Robin Williams once said, too: "Recently, a book declared that Hitler may have been a homosexual. Really? I always thought so, what with the leather and the dancing!"

If by "they" you mean the Romans, then yes, but the Nazis interned gays in concentration camps (yet another reason that sooperphreek's comments are disgusting, and not just because he has chosen to denigrate one of the worst periods in human history, by making light of concentration camps and all the horrors of the Holocaust). But, hey, sooperphreek must be one of those fundamentalists who forgets the "judge not lest ye be judged" and "let he without sin..." parts of his religion.

The proof is in the pudding, as they say.....

Adams HE, Wright LW Jr, Lohr BA.
Department of Psychology, University of Georgia, Athens 30602-3013, USA.
The authors investigated the role of homosexual arousal in exclusively heterosexual men who admitted negative affect toward homosexual individuals. Participants consisted of a group of homophobic men (n = 35) and a group of nonhomophobic men (n = 29); they were assigned to groups on the basis of their scores on the Index of Homophobia (W. W. Hudson & W. A. Ricketts, 1980). The men were exposed to sexually explicit erotic stimuli consisting of heterosexual, male homosexual, and lesbian videotapes, and changes in penile circumference were monitored. They also completed an Aggression Questionnaire (A. H. Buss & M. Perry, 1992). Both groups exhibited increases in penile circumference to the heterosexual and female homosexual videos. Only the homophobic men showed an increase in penile erection to male homosexual stimuli. The groups did not differ in aggression. Homophobia is apparently associated with homosexual arousal that the homophobic individual is either unaware of or denies.

I don't know about that. It shows that I've been right for years. Homophobics are actually repressed homosexuals. Now I just have to find proof that WWF and it's ilk are just homoerotic entertainment and the theory will be complete!
