If in the 10% then no.

This has also worked so well in the past!

Just because it is a mystery to YOU doesn't make it unexplained.

STORM - a must watch - caution, some profanity and may cause you to experience reason.

So we're putting human and civil rights up to a vote now ae we? How is that feasable exactly?

So just take off that disguise, everyone knows that you're only, pretty on the outside

bah, I started it. I picture the OP with a nice little mustache.

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone's fault. If it was us, what did that make Me? After all, I'm one of Us. I must be. I've certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We're always one of Us. It's Them that do the bad things.

All people are equal some just need the guiding hand of the state to make sure they dont violate the rights of others.
Like say... violating their right to privacy?
Again, you realize these convictions were for being homosexual, not due to any crime?

That is such a terrible idea.  :lol:

I never doubted myself for a minute for I knew that my monkey-strong bowels were girded with strength, like the loins of a dragon ribboned with fat and the opulence of buffalo dung.

I can't think of a single situation where state policies that governed people of a specific ethnicity, religion or sexual preference differently than the rest of the population had a positive result, can you?

Ok, well, would the fact that this person is black, gay, Jewish, orphaned and male automatically cause him to NOT be able to judge this woman or would that be based on his actions in life?

The fact they got locked up may mean that deep down inside many might have issues over their treatment.

A little while ago, I didn't have much to say... but now there is one thing I would like to say:

I'm glad that your fantastical utopia will never exist. I am one of those homosexuals you so clearly despise.


'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

It isnt yes or no.

It depends on whether the person is likely to be unprofessional to the woman.

And now by restricting where they can work we can make any deep rooted frustrations they may have even more apparent!  

This all makes so much sense!  :w00t:
