Here is why, in my first post, I said everything (operationally) involved in "being gay" is behavioral just as everything involved in "being heterosexual" is behavioral.

My overarching point is this: There are no visible distinctions to one being homosexual but for the attraction to a same sex partner. This is untrue for minorities or other atypical pheno/genotypes whom I think should be afforded certain protections. To say that being gay or homosexual is the same as being one of the other aforementioned minorities is a bit of a stretch in my opinion. If I am dressed in the same Hugo Boss suit as a gay person and we both walk into a room simultaneously, I am clearly and easily identified as a minority...they would not be but for behavior.

Again, great conversation!!
So, by that same logic, black folks who can "pass" as white don't deserve those protections, either?

I was careful to write pheno/geno-typically.

On another note, pass with whom? I haven't met one I can't spot having a bunch in my family on my mom's side. Eyes as green as emeralds and skin as fair a freshly made creme.

How are you today?

Well, as a white dude, I have no expertise there. I assume when people have referred to "passing" they mean with the average Joe or Jane, AKA society at large (not a reference to Alpha Kappa Alphas ).

Oooh, a house divided!

One of my very best friends married an AKA. He's a member of the fraternity that is royal blue/white - I can never remember the letters.... Phi Beta Sigma?

I was the only white guy in his wedding party and he did tuxes in his fraternity colors. White tuxes. That was not a good look for a pale 6'4" guy. The photos are a source of much amusement.

Lol...yes! It can be pretty funny from time to time. When she made her debut with the AKAs all of my mom's friends were outraged! Lol! Take a valium.

You're correct on the Sigma's. I fully understand about the wedding...I've seen that and worse. My rule on clothing is basically this: How will this look to people in 25 years when people have no context? Black tux, white shirt, black ties. LOL!!

I love him and he's an absolute sweetheart of a man, so I can forgive - the photos won't let me forget, though.

Weird article. Basically blames men for oppressing women somehow? I dont think the average person gives a sh*t whether someone is gay/straight/whatever and I certainly dont think most people think heterosexuality is oppressive lol

Oh thank you NBC for this gem.. Normally I would expect this level of libtart comedy to come from Vox, Huffington Post, or Vice but God damn NBC you are taking the lead now.

Now the writer and oh imagine my shock

Marcie Bianco is a writer and an editor living in California. She is columnist at the Women’s Media Center, and her writing can be found both online and in print at outlets like NBC Think, Pacific Standard, Quartz, Rolling Stone, Salon, Vanity Fair, and Vox
And shit like this will lead to Trump winning in 2020. Purple state folks are going to read this and think "well, I dislike Trump, but I don't want to see this crap become mainstream"

Noticed that NBC is talking about Weinstein again.

They correctly concluded that their lefty followers were too brain dead to remember that NBC did not run the story bc Lack and Openheim were in bed (maybe literally) with Weinstein. And of course Ronan Farrow broke the story to the New Yorker and won a Pulitzer Prize.

You of course wonder how Journalism wound up in a pigsty of lies when Journalism as in Reporting Facts seems to have died in many cases.

"Yes Virginia, there is Fake News".."it lives in the hearts and minds of Lefties"

OOPS:

“We, the undersigned candidates, are very concerned about the message it would send to sexual assault survivors if our next debate is sponsored by MSNBC without clear commitments from Comcast, the parent company of NBC and MSNBC, to conduct an independent investigation into the toxic culture that enabled abusers and silenced survivors,” the letter begins.

There could be no statement more fundamentally false as the statement that heterosexuality has oppressed the human race...or any other species, for that matter. It's equivalent to saying that water has oppressed fish.

If it wasn't for "heterosexuality" we wouldn't be having this conversation.
