I've never yet heard of someone having their car wrecked because they've got freckles.


Probably because it wouldnt be reported. Only special interest groups run to the press when something happens to them and the press exploits their stories because theyre a "hot button"
People are messed with every freaking day for one reason or another.. and Im supposed to feel more sorry for someone thats messed with because theyre gay? Nah, I dont fall in line with the PC BS.. I believe hate crime laws should be illegal.
Why should the punishment be worse for killing someone based on race or sexual orientation than it is to kill a person that doesnt fall into that category?

It's probably because people don't get their cars wrecked simply because they've got freckles, not because of some statistical aberration as you would have everyone believe.

I mean, you don't see people with freckles getting hassle everytime they go into a Freckle Nightclub on a Friday night, do you ? You don't hear about people with freckles getting thrown out of the army, or being denied their right to marry someone else with freckles. You don't hear about people with freckles being burned to death in Uganda or hung in Iraq, being denied their choice of partner at their Prom or being arrested for kissing another freckler in a public place. Or being arrested for having sex with another freckler under the age of 21, or for having anal sex with another freckler.

Nope, freckly people seem immune to all that, I think. But I can name one group which isn't.

Oh no, sorry, "it's political correctness gone mad", isn't it ? *sigh*

PS Ryan's still dead. Nice of you to show no interest in him at all, absolutely none, in your haste to paint everyone else as nuts and you as the sole voice of moderation.

Why in the hell should I care about "Ryan"? Did not know him...My best friend died in 93 and my Dad died in 09.. were vigils held for them or fundraisers held for the family? Nope, they just died, just like thousands do every year.
Why should him dying be anymore special than the thousands thatve died before and after him?
Because he was gay? pffft

Perhaps I was hoping for a simple "sorry to hear about your friend ?

In the same way I'm sorry to hear about your own losses ?

No-one's asklng you to hold a fundraiser or a vigil for him, that's really quite cruel of you.

We're members of a community here, we should speak to each other like friends or neighbours, it doesn't always have to be a gladiatorial contest, you know. I'm sorry you have so much anger on the subject,

I'll move on to a different topic, a different thread and leave you in peace.

After having his car vandalized four times, Jordan Addison said it would cost $2,500 to fix the damage. And Addison says he believes he was targeted for being gay.

But the manager of a local auto shop stepped in and not only repaired Addison's car for free but also enlisted the help of several other auto specialists to give the car a substantial upgrade.

He estimates the total value of the new parts to be over $10,000.

Occasionally, a body shop with a good-natured owner will make a donation, like Quality Auto Paint and Body did. Another recent example was Carreras Auto Body in Heraldsburg, Calif., according to the Heraldsburg Patch. The shop donated free paint and detailing for a car that was itself donated to an area woman who was recovering from a severe stroke.
