Planned Parenthood Targets Black Women

"Put out" implies that sex is something women do as a favor for men. News flash: Women have sexual desires too! Now, of course, I do not think anyone should have sex irresponsibly or under coercion. Sex is best kept for committed, emotionally intimate relationships. But anyone who has sex and does not want a pregnancy to result should use birth control, and of course should take precautions against sexually transmitted disease.
Unfortunately, we still live in a world where people are generally presumed to be heterosexual, unless they exhibit personality traits that are stereotypically gay. So no one needs to "come out" as heterosexual, but people make their heterosexuality known every time they talk about who they're dating, put a picture of their spouse on their desk at work, etc. So gay people still need to come out to show that they're everywhere and as normal as the rest of us (and yes, THEY ARE) and to help other gay people have the freedom to be as open about their personal lives as straight people are. And if you think there isn't discrimination, well, just look at some of the comments on Townhall to see how widespread the HATRED of gays is.

It happens on occasion. For once, for once, this way-left liberal agrees with Pat Buchanan.

Agreed on all counts. And really, conservatives continuing to strain to connect Ayers and Obama--it's ridiculous.

BTW, "Red Red Wine," although covered by UB40 in the 1980s, was written by Neil Diamond, who recorded it in the '60s. So he deserves the attribution.

Even If Your Child Is Gay...

Yes, some gay men and women, too, married a member of the opposite sex and tried to be straight. Many of those marriages were miserable, and many of them broke up because the gay partner could no longer deny his/her true nature. It's much better as a society for people to be able to be who they are.

Today's Republican Party would not welcome Lincoln, nor would he want anything to do with it. The "Dixiecrats" largely deserted the Democrats for the Republicans.
Excellent post. Those on the far right can't get used to the idea that there is very little support for their idelogy.
