Lie Down with Dogs

24 Jun

As you may have heard, the New York legislature is debating a bill that would extend marriage equality to gays and lesbians. Apparently not everyone agrees with the whole gay marriage thing. One particular legislator, Sam Trombley (R) from Clinton County, NY, has made this argument concerning gay marriage:

“I’m surprised the health department has not come out against this because we are going to have an HIV epidemic if this passes.  They (health department) are always complaining about tobacco and smoking, I’m surprised they didn’t say anything about this.”

This argument, of course, defies all reason, but clearly Mr. Trombley is not a reasonable man. In case he hadn’t fully distinguished himself as a total ass-hat, he went on to say, “”You don’t see two male dogs sleeping in the same dog house together,” he said. “It blows my mind to think of it.”

Isn’t it bad enough that this Trombley person is telling lies about gay people? Now he is lying about dogs too.

Two male dogs will totally sleep together. They will happily lick each other (and themselves) anywhere they feel like it and sniff each other’s butts too. Then they will hump your leg.

Has Mr. Trombley ever even met a dog?

At least he didn’t do what a lot of these homophobes do and claim “some of my best friends are gay!” Mr. Trombley doesn’t know anything about man’s best friend. What kind of friend could he be?

On a different note, I heard a story this week about an online dating website called Beautiful People. Apparently they have a screening process. You have to set up a profile, download (or upload–I get those two things confused) your picture. Then a group of people of the opposite sex, who have already been admitted into Beautiful People, vote to determine whether or not you are, in fact, beautiful enough to make the cut. Once you’re on the site, if you gain weight or otherwise turn ugly on them, they will boot you out.

I heard about this site on a morning news show on CNN. Three TV-pretty newsreader women were babbling about it. It seems that the folks at Beautiful People had been hacked by a former employee. A virus, called the Shrek virus, had been unleashed and it was letting all sorts of not so beautiful people onto the site. The owners of the site, who proudly boast, “no uglies allowed” said they had to spend $100,000 to purge 30,000 ugly people.

So the three pretty TV women were discussing this and giggling (as TV women will) and sort of trying to act disapproving of this site’s whole attitude. One of the women said, “I truly think beauty is in eye of the beholder” and the other two women nodded. Then they laughed out loud.

You just know all three of these women have profiles on Beautiful People.

Later in the day I read an article that speculated that this whole story was a hoax. There is no Shrek virus. Beautiful People just put this story out there so TV pretty women on CNN and other news outlets would go on TV and say “Beautiful” over and over again. So these “Beautiful People” are just big fat liars just trying to get attention.

Isn’t that just like a “Beautiful Person”?

I’ve said it before and I will say it again–oh what an age we live in!

Happy Friday

    lol Beautiful people website, what next?

    It’s been my experience that married people discontinue sleeping around, hence the safety of NOT contracting STD’s but then a politician wouldn’t understand such practices since marriage doesn’t seem to mean the same thing for them as it does us regular folks.
