Gay Asylum Claims

I am somewhat disturbed by the NYT story about Gays having to flaunt their identities to get asylum claims. This is a very disturbing story and a sad state of a situation where the laws need to be adjusted and perhaps training of officers need to be addressed.

The truth is that I have observed more ignorance and anti gay commentary than other types of bigotry. The same people who would crucify you for imagined racism would call lesbians bull dykes and gays fags.

There is something severely wrong when attorneys tell clients to look or act gay. Officers should grasp that some gays are outlandish and many are quite ordinary if not even boring.

When the subject presented itself I told a trainee. We adjudicate on facts and logic not looks. Gay people nor heterosexuals all have a common look. Many of those you think are gay are not and visa versa.

The sentiment in the office is largely against gay marriage. I pointed out we as officers will have to rise to the challenge and learn to judge chemistry between the couple. I am still in favor of Civil Unions as marriage remains a religious term and government should keep out of the business of defining religious terms.

That is not ignorance, but sound judgement. One can't do anything about one's race, but one HAS NOT to act "gay" if one is homosexual. You are comparing apples with oranges, Beak.

Are people supposed to act as instructed by some jaded fascist, Editrix.

No go inside for your twice a day nice tight bowel movement.

I don't think you should be talking about giving people instruction Duck.

Editrix, making claims that Gays are all alike and have a look is just rather silly.

When an applicant for asylum claims to be gay, it should incur a full blood screening, invasive biopsy, and full medical and psychological examination at their expense to certify whether or not they're really trying to smuggle in some Hepatitis-C colonies up their asses as some sort of suicide bioterrorism weapon to release on Anderson Cooper fans.

What does that have to do with my comment, Beak?

In the USA we have a hysteria that any IMAGINED racism is the sum of all evil. The truth is Black people can be just as bigoted as anyone else. Even at work they group together in what is called by the group "Black Female Time". If Whites made a similar group we would be fired.

The level of epithets showered by people at Gays at work is amazing. Oddly amny of the worst culprits are the same Blacks that would end the career of anyone imagined to have expressed any anti Black words.

Others also say these horrible epithets but are not so vigilant and self righteous about bigotry.

No you grasp that gays are not all alike. For the most part you are enlightened in your own way. I would love to get to an enlightened time when nobody cares. We have a long way to go.

There are good gays and bad gays. The good ones are the ones that don't go out of their way to hide that they're gay, but they don't flaunt it either, nor make unreasonable demands like most gay activists do. And they tend to NOT vote Democrat.

We're all going to get to Beaks bigoted utopia where everyone simply dumps on the Muslims. Way to go Officer Obie.

Did you wonder why yeagly and a photography friend decided to go to an all gay political thing? I wondered if they posed as a gay couple, even baggy ann questioned his reasoning. Motoy took up for him with something about a news worthy subject, but he never responded to baggy ann and the subject died.....but why did yeagley mention it in the first place, then ignored comments??? I believe the man is Gay...Obama did him a favor and he still hates him, because of his skin color. I don't care if he is gay, but its my belief that he is. He is a user of gays for the attention he can muster up. If you were to see him in person....his mannerisms ARE gay. I do care that he uses ugly gay sarcasm(to deter from himself being such), and that he tries to re-write the history of Indians for his white readers and the way he mistreats Blacks!

Ducky-do you mean instead of the Muslim utopia where they dump on everybody else that isn't Muslim, and a hell of a lot that are, like women, girls, gays?

Guess what? I would be fine with that.

Strike that, I wouldn't be fine with that.

I would be ecstatically, deliriously happy with it.
