No, this is great. Now I have a scale on which to grade the thoughtfulness and credibility of anything you ever post on here.

Make no mistake buddy - you ARE homophobic and displaying my main intolerable personality trait; bigotry.

Passive-aggressive people.

You can never win arguments.

That $60 piece of junk didn't vacuum well and the handle always comes off. He warns me that he used tape and a magic marker to fix it. Ahh, here it is.



I'm not quite sure what purpose the magic marker serves, but it's apparently necessary. He has me crying in laughter right now.

In the mean time, I found this site and will attempt to fix our other vacuum.
Fer several lustrum i've had a 'Fantom Lightning' vacuum (with Hepa filter). It works reel well. She has great suction. www.fantom.com

Fantastic...so now you're effectively demonizing me, for merely having the audacity to state that I do not approve of militant homos*xuality For merely having an opinion that you do not happen to like...wow...

Your call though...

Racism = bigotry.

Being non pro-gay is hardly bigotry. I don't "hate" gay ppl. I just disapprove of their s*xual conduct. Totally different scenario.

Racism/ sexism/ homophobia all = bigotry. A really, really, REALLY unattractive and disgusting trait.

This is an absolute deal breaker for any kind of relationship/ friendship for me. You and I would have nothing to do with each other in real life. I'm sure we are both happy about that!

Go back 20-30 years or further, and most reasonable ppl would disagree with you that "homophobia" constituted legitimate bigotry. The reality is, that is a recent view, and one strongly promoted by the pro-gay lobby. You are not looking at this in the historical context; only "what is", right now. "What is" is not the same as "what was".

You don't particularly like me? No worries, I can deal with that

Did I say it was only a matter of time until this post gets "very positive" rep?!

Yeah, go back a bit further and slavery was just fine too. Killing people based on their religious beliefs was perfectly acceptable too. If we're looking at 'historically' then being a racist, homophobic, bigot was just fine. Perhaps you were born in the wrong period of time?

Whatever, there is no reasoning with people such as yourself. <<Shudder>>.
