Quote# 79527

A lesbian student is asked to take off her T-Shirt because it says "Nobody knows I'm a lesbian"

"She does have a right to free speech, and I don't think she should be an exception."

I disagree. Same-sex attraction disorder is a degrading, destructive, self-destructive mental disorder that manifests as a compulsion to engage in loathsome perversions. Statements denying that fall into the same category as yelling "fire" in a crowded theater, and may rightfully and constitutionally be prohibited.

I'm all for lesbians taking off their shirts, just not for the same reason as this bigot.

So, a student being a lesbian is WORSE than that same student being humiliated and told to go around shirtless?

I didn't realize it was Backwards Day again already.

And I agree with the statement and disagree with yours. So what? What do you do now?

BTW: Please define the term "free speech". Shouldn't be too hard...

"I disagree... Statements denying that..."

Your opinion is not that bullet-proof, no matter how much of a megalomaniac you are. Interestingly, megalomania is still in the DSM in some form or other and homosexuality is not, so your opinion doesn't count for squat.

How is wearing a shirt that says "Nobody knows I'm a lesbian" even REMOTELY compare to yelling "fire" in a crowded theatre?

Do you want to know how many people noticed what her shirt said? One. Probably some pervy wanker who was staring at her chest and decided that because she's a lesbian and therefore not available to him (I won't even go into how her being a lesbian is the least of his problems) he had to go whine about how evil her shirt is.

For fucks sake!

When are Americans going to wake up? These retarded mythology clowns have one goal and one goal only - Christian type sharia laws.

And most Americans seems to be more then willing to accept this bullshit!

Even more funny it is to watch what is happening in Wisconsin - fights the rest of the civilized world took on 70-80 years ago and which has not been an issue since.

As someone else said: Egypt = 18 days, Wisconsin = ???

And the clown in the OP do not want people to have the power wielded in Wisconsin!

It isn't in the DSM IV so can you back it up as a mental disorder? The only degrading destructive attitude I see is yours. And how is it anything like yelling fire in a crowded theatre?

That's idiotic even by Freep standards. Sometimes I can do naught but stand in awe of just how stupid - that's the most accurate description I can think of: 'stupid' - some of these people are.

Freedom of speech does not work that way, dumbass!

A "self-destructive mental disorder"? What if she'd been wearing a shirt that said, "Nobody knows I have OCD" or "Nobody knows I have schizophrenia"? Would she have had to take her shirt off then, too?

If your answer is "no", then you've undermined your whole argument.

Translation: Thoughts and expressions that are contrary to mine should be suppressed and censored. Free speech only applies to ideas that I personally like. I have no idea how modern democracy works.

@ Headache:

Oh, for fuck's sake.

Most Americans are not "more than willing to accept this bullshit." If you've paid attention, you'd notice that when fundies like this start trying to legislate creationism or deny people their rights or whatnot, Americans protest. A few more states have just allowed gays to get married recently, and this stuff is just backlash. Do you have any idea how long it takes reform movements to get stuff done? You seem to think it happens overnight.

As for Wisconsin, I am confused here. You seem to be for the Wisconsin protestors, if I read your post correctly, but if you are, then you have destroyed your own argument. I can't comprehend why you still stereotype all Americans as fundie idiots when the evidence that they aren't is RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU! And what do you mean, "fights the rest of the civilized world took on 70-80 years ago and which has not been an issue since"? Don't go claiming that the entire rest of the civilized world became a socialist rational utopia in the 1920s-1930s; that's obviously false. Besides, Americans did fight some important battles back then, just different battles.

So don't claim that only America has fundies. If you honestly believe that, then look at the Daily Mail-- a British newspaper. You will be disillisioned of your little delusion. Now, be a good little boy and don't interrupt the adults again.

Your Constitution says you are wrong.
She's entitled to her say, just as you're entitled to spew your mindless hate. That's what free speech is all about.
What you want is fascism. I'm not really surprised that this comes from Free Republic. If ever there was a bunch of retards who would be willing to use the Constitution as toilet paper, it's that bunch of knuckle-dragging mouth-breathers.

Oh, right, let me just check my copy of the U.S. Constitution...Ah, there it is:

"The Twenty-eighth Amendment

Heterosexuality, being the founding principle of this Great Nation Under God, the right to free speech of homosexuals, shall be infringed upon."

A christians student is asked to take off her T-Shirt because it has offensive bible verses.

"She does have a right to free speech, and I don't think she should be an exception."

I disagree. christianity disorder is a degrading, destructive, self-destructive mental disorder that manifests as a compulsion to engage in loathsome perversions. Statements denying that fall into the same category as yelling "fire" in a crowded theater, and may rightfully and constitutionally be prohibited.

Please send more information on loathsome perversions.

The lie to the argument was best given by Christopher Hitchens, who at a debate shouted "fire," at the opening of his segment. Nothing bad occurred.

Also destroyed the arguments of Oliver Wendell Holmes.

Fundies Make Me Sick

#1: You fail constitutional law and at making analogies. Making statements that promote acceptance of Homosexuality presents no "clear and present danger", which is the standard that must be met if speech is to be prohibited, like falsely yelling "fire" in a theater would and therefore, it is constitutionally permissible. The fact that you don't like it doesn't mean you get to decide it shouldn't be allowed.

#2: Homosexuality is not considered to be a mental disorder, but a legitimate (although rare) sexual orientation that one is born with. Also, all sexual activity is considered "loathsome perversion" to you fools, so STFU.

#3: The fact that you WANT to take away the civil rights of a group of people just because you don't like them makes you no better than many of the authoritarian dictators throughout history, and therefore, I will close this post with an emphatic DIAF.

Same-sex attraction disorder

Funny, I've never heard this term mentioned by anyone with legitimate medical credentials. I wonder why that is?

So, you highly disagree with a position and statement, so you make an off-the-wall comparison, comparing the expressing of an opinion with an act on par with pulling a false fire alarm in a rather pathetic attempt to restrict free speech.

Sorry, nice try. Societies like The People's Republic of China don't constitute "FreeRepublics". Thanks for playing.
