I'll take your word for it. If it is, that is a day worth noting. Families that provide a home for a child have the biggest hearts.

How stupid.
That's what I was thikning. Along with.....where's the remembrance day for all the women murdered in the country every day? The #1 cause of death of pregnant women in America is homicide. 27? For real? 27? A lot more women than that are murdered daily for no other reason than they are women. (And let's not even get around to the middle eastern and other countries. That would boggle the mind.)

No one said anything about hating or not being tolerant but the whole rememberance day only applies to those friends and family affected by the loss. So why would I remember anyone on this day? I do not know anyone who was killed because of their lifestyle so I have no one to remember.


YOU are the one hating and not being tolerant with the words you wrote above in bold.

You laugh. This is a viable choice in Translandia 2015, where you can start out as a man who is attracted to women but who "is actually" a woman. When such a person transitions to being a woman, "she" is still attracted to women, and is therefore technically a lesbian.

I know. I know.

"Cis" is also what the trans call gay people who are happy being gay and don't want to be trans (99.9999% of gays). I can't think of a worse thing to call gay men than a homophone for the first syllable in "sissy." And I don't believe the trans didn't realize this before they started with "cis."

Gay women don't want still-penised "women," either. I hope there'd be no risk of loss of life, but you would have some seriously pissed-off lesbians.

Nothing worse than seriously pissed off lesbians. Some I know are tougher than a lot of men.

But it's fun to get offended by things that don't even concern us!

Nope. I will let them bask in their misery over other people's lives.

There were 142 college students murdered by Al Shaabab terrorists at Garissa University in Kenya in April of this year for merely being Christian....no international day of remembrance for them!!!
