That makes me and TheXO who have accomplished that feat, but I suppose he gets bonus points for making you do it out of pleasure.

Discrimination by private businesses should be allowed. In a free society, no one should be force to serve someone else.

No, that's find. All the homophobic people can gather there and make themselves good targets and understand how we feel at times.

Also, all non-homophobic people, not just gays, can boycott said businesses. Or maybe something worse can happen to them, just not by my hand as I won't allow them to make something of me that I don't want to be.

Nope. Still well and good even if someone decides not to serve me; I’ll just go to another business where they will serve me.

Devil's advocate: what if 90% of the businesses wouldn't serve you? What if "just go[ing] to another business" meant driving 30 extra miles? Or some other ridiculous burden you must bear?

And if that business is the only supplier of the goods or services you want? Or it's the economical option? Or if other companies see this as an acceptable practice and choose to follow suit?

Sorry but i think you haven't really thought about it. Sure if its your local bakery and there are plenty of alternatives, that one thing, but if its the only affordable energy supplier in your area, you gonna up-sticks and move? You happy to pay for that, just because that company doesn't like your sexuality or the colour of your skin etc?

nobody would know you're gay, if you wouldn't tell them. (strangers anyway). I say let them have their freedom of association.

For the longest time on GTF I would find it incredibly amusing that Jordy would get bewildered at how family and friends could possibly tell that he was gay. Like, seriously bitch? You’re like the Queen Mary floating on a tub of lube.

Controversial opinion? " White" skin tone is close to be a genetic disorder, while coloured skin tones is the normal colour"

I'm into this for quite some years already, since I never understood that colour-thing only humans seem to make a fuzz about. There, all along, I watched my caucasian tribe members for so many years, and I thought, there's a connection between skin tone "white" and a lot of the crazy, silly, insane historical and present time's turmoil going on. I know, there were others, too. Like the egyptians and inner african hell raisers and asian dominance seekers and so on. Yet the "white" skinned seem to have brought this much trouble and war and discrimination into existance.
Too, in biology, the light colour traits relate a bit to albinism, leucotism and some such minor genetic problems.
I don't necessarily say, all white people are somehow degenerative, just because of their skin tone - don't get me wrong.
Yet often it seems that many of these white supremacy ideas and all that crap came with, or is closely related to white skintone craziness and that hollow idea, this would be something elitary.

While it's not at all. Getting these awful sun burns all the damn time if you want to snooze at the beach all nude, for more than 10 minutes, really ain't fun! :lol:
Funny are the reactions, if you sort of "white shame" other members of the white tribe, especially those of the elitary mindset. They get really pissed off, if you even as much as tell them, brown eyes and black or brown hair are the normal. So look at the people of the world. Most of them come in coloured skin tones and black/brown hair, brown or dark eyes. ;)

Is it just a white centered perspective? Do you,too, think whiteys should shut up about wanting to explain the world and things at all? Should there be more piebald people ... talking about how to explain the world? ( No, it's not Vitiligo in every case )

Piebald people, example, cool guy:

anyone think this silly colour apartheidism thing will vanish, if everyone would have kinds with everyone on the planet, and after some generations human race was of mixed tones variety?

Wishful thinking.

It's ok to be a stalker as long as you're watching out for the person you're stalking. And yes to cleaning up the trash who are bad for the one you love. (A thought I get from watching Netflix's tv show: You)
