    Btw, don't feel at all obligated to reply to all of this. I know it's a lot of writing, lol, and we're kinda going back and forth on the same topics, so really, don't feel forced to continue if you don't want. x) I already supppppppppppppppper duppppeer appreciate everything you've replied to me with, so just respond to what you feel deserves a reply if you'd like. <3 I just feel bad making you have to respond to all the nonsense I write, hahaha. :>

    ________________

    Really, most politicians abuse the power given to them and end up doing nothing they claimed they would do during their campaign. They don’t work for the people, they work to better themselves. All I see them pretty much do all day is endlessly bicker between themselves, and that, in turn, leads to us, the people, being affected by the problems that they were supposed to fix. And, of course, they earn big bucks in the meantime. Nothing new to see here.

    I’m not much into religion, and I’m glad you’re educated within the subject because you really backed up what you said (and what I said) very nicely, and I appreciate that. All I know is that God loves all his children no matter what race, sex, ethnicity, whatever. I believe he put us all on this Earth for a reason, and, well, religion should not be used as an excuse to hate a certain group of people, like you said. I’m really not too familiar with the content in the Bible or with religion at all, but all I want and can say is that God loves all his children, period. That’s all that needs to be said, really. I highly respect people who are religious and admire their faith, because, well, I also cherish my faith and I believe in God and idolize him to the utmost extreme, but sometimes people are so molded by religion and allow it to govern their lives so strongly that they tend to forget the people who religion apparently says to resent and hate are just like them, human. Gah. I don’t want to make myself sound dumb. I just become so frustrated when it comes to religion. >.< It just doesn’t make sense to me most of the time.

    Don’t worry, haha, you didn’t offend me. Frankly, I don’t understand religion enough to be able to get offended by it, if that makes sense. The way I look at is that the Bible has been passed down and edited so many times that, like you mentioned, it makes religion itself seem so inaccurate and incoherent. No one will ever know what Jesus’s mission truly was, or even if he had one at all. I hope I didn’t offend you there, either, ha. Believe me, I have my faith and highly respect religion. I just don’t understand it most of the time. X<

    I didn’t even know who the boys were back when they were on the UK X-Factor. I didn’t even know what the X-Factor was, either, until the first season debuted here in the U.S. in 2011. I did see a few of the 1D performances on the show, though, and they were pretty good. None of them have really changed except that they have obviously matured and grown a bit. Liam was booted off the show the first time he was on it (during bootcamp, like you said), but then he re-auditioned and got in, and that’s when the group was made (talking about God, thank God for 1D, lol) And yeah, that’s a real tattoo. Not entirely sure what it signifies, but it’s definitely real. He’s a cutie pie.

    Although the ad wasn’t necessarily funded by Romney’s campaign, you could obviously tell how most Republicans feel about the topic of homosexuality from just watching the actual ad. To say the least, the acting was extremely bad and the actors pretty much looked like they were forcing themselves to say those things. It’s disgusting. But that was just one of the ads I found. There was one that was actually aired on TV (which I saw with my own two eyes and actually had Romney making an appearance and speaking in it) that explicitly made a mention about homosexuality and how it was pretty much an abomination. Obviously Romney didn’t use those words but that’s what he was hinting towards. I forgot the exact line he used but it was extremely offensive and just straight up stupid. Ahhhh, I'm sooooooooooo glad again that he didn’t win the election. You know what’s funny? Obama won more votes in Romney's home state than Romney did. Just goes to show...

    Ahahaha, well, I’m not exactly sure what the Republican Party British equivalent would be, but I do know that most Republicans are just like those politicians in that party you mentioned. They are EXTREMELY conservative, radical, and they really do believe that they have a higher moral standard than anyone else. They’re more for “individual freedom” and are less for actual government. Most are also very religious and you know the only place where that could lead to. I mean, obviously each Party has their pros and cons, their perfections and faults, but Republicans just really want people to fend for themselves. They are the Party which you can’t really relate to because it almost feels as if they are not even a part of the government at all. I could go on and on but I think you get the point, lol, and it’s not even that I don’t like the Party. I just don’t like their standards and position on things.

    Lmao! Beyoncé is definitely super sexy, and that's coming from me!



    uffffffffffffffff..........

    Controversial issue = not too many want to get involved when it comes to supporting the issue = not enough support = leave the issue up to politicians = get nowhere. This is, unfortunately, that deadly cycle we see too often happen. You know why else people don't get involved? Because we've also seen far too often that people who either support or oppose an issue and feel strongly enough about it to actually go and voice their choice on the streets in protest end up getting arrested and very misrepresented by the media. People would just rather not further complicate their lives with issues that they think won't really affect them, although, like you said, the matter being debated eventually does affect them in some way, whether directly or indirectly. Essentially, yeah, we are very selfish creatures, and you know that's not changing anytime soon, LOL. Gosh, why am I human again? >.<

    What people don't realize is that the many things happening around us will eventually impact us in some way, whether in a small or large way. People would just not rather get involved until they realize that their lives are being impinged upon, which by then, it's a little too late to "fix" the problem. Society, why are you so dumb?

    Your thoughts on the LGBT issue is, as always, fricken right and amazing! x) Most people who are already accepting of gay rights/marriage won't be in any way bothered by any type of legislation that passes, but those radical bastards who are still possessed by their irrational thinking (and probably religious ones, too) and are not accepting, will really be in for a slap to the face, and by then, they won't be able to do anything and will just have to life with it. People are always like, "don't do to others what you wouldn't want done to you", yet we still have, like you said, society being plagued by millions of hate crimes each and every year.

    We're all human no matter who we love. It's an easy statement to make but somehow so poorly understood by many.

    That's Liam Payne in my avatar and signature and he's the most gorgeous, perfect, caring, loving, sexy, attractive, and affectionate creature living on this Earth. Did I forget to say sexy? LOL, no, but really, I wish I could make avatars and signatures! I just grab these icons and signatures off of Tumblr. :p I'm glad you thought I made them, though! xD

    A friendly reminder (this is my baby playing with my other baby's (the blonde leprechaun) hair Dear Lord, I cannot.):



    Romney is a scumbag, and yeah, when he lost I also laughed at him. Here is just one of the anti-gay ads he put out. Don't even get me started about these (skip to 0:33 for the actual ad):



    And, yes, it's always really satisfying to see the candidate you voted for win an election. :D I voted for Obama and I'm proud I did. No regrets here. He always had my vote, anyways, regardless of whether Romney was anti-gay or not. I just don't like the Republican party, but that discussion can be left for another day, haha.

    You sir, are never bothering me when you prod me. In my mind, you are a whole separate item on the list of things I have to do. It's not just 'reply to VMs' it's 'reply to VMs' and 'talk to Barrels'

    I can't say I blame you for cheating - though it does hurt me beyond all comprehension! I have been a very absent friend, and though in my defence i do have very good reasons, I should always make time for you

    The good news is that there is an end in sight! We have applied for a place to live and we'll likely be applying for another on Wednesday should that fall through, so hopefully we'll be approved for one of them and then I'll have a new home and internets and this horrid ordeal will be over forever!

    Gyardosamped is a great guy though... I hope you'll be happy together

    Awwwwwwww. <3 When's the wedding? hahaha. & the question is whether or not you're okay with Andy beating you with a stick? x) & I hope it's a tree stick and, well, not another type of stick. WHY AM I BEING SO NAUGHTY TODAY!?



    Okay, I'm done. Bahahaa.

    Your input has been great and we all really appreciate it. I hate to categorize people, but I believe people can be sorted into three different types of groups when it comes to how they view non-heterosexual sexuality:

    Those who are opposed to homosexuality, lesbianism, etc.
    Those who are for gay rights but don't necessarily want to get involved.
    And, of course, you have those who lie neutral on the spectrum.

    The problem really isn't that people are opposed to homosexuality (let's just use homosexuality for this example), it's that they don't want to get involved. This happens with everything. Once a "controversial" topic gets into the hands of the public, people either choose to get involved, mostly in negative ways, and many opt not to get involved, so we're left with a bunch of people who are opposed to the entire situation/topic at hand. And then you have people who don't want to get involved for the mere reason of not wanting to be criticized by their peers. It's a crazy cycle, and it's especially true when it comes to the discussion of homosexuality, gay marriage, etc.. I hope that all made sense, haha. x)

    Hmm, we should definitely have someone make banners, signatures, avatars, emblems, anything graphical for the LGBT club! I'm surprised we haven't yet. I do believe, though, that the universal symbol which represents the LGBT community is the rainbow flag, no? But yes, PC LGBTS Visibility Week needs to happen, and soon! xD We'll have to talk to Andy to see if he can maybe arrange something. I know there's like an LGBT pride day in the year, so maybe we can organize something for around that time.

    I've never been much into American politics before, but when I saw Mitt Romney's "anti-gay, pro Mormon crap" commercial/advertisement, I totally became involved within the race. Obama is one of the first President's to openly support/endorse gays, which is really awesome to hear. I just hope he sticks to his words and gets some legislation running. How many times have we heard our country's leaders/politicians talk about the change they're going to be implementing, but they never actually do anything about it when they're in office? I know it's not a one man effort, either, but he is definitely one of the people who is able to introduce measures and bills in the House of Reps. and the Senate. & you're right! U.S. presidents only get a maximum of two terms (8 years) in office, and this is his last term, so LET'S GO OBAMA! xD

    STOP WITH ALL THESE ADORABLE GIFS, GOSH, I CANNOT TAKE THIS. <333

    Haha, hope you're having an awesome weekend! As always, thanks for the kind replies and comments.

    Okay, I'm going to fit the gay stereotype for just this one time. No, not all guys we see we like, BUT WILL YOU MARRY ME? xD Haha, jk, but you're seriously awesome!

    It's funny, that topic goes like dead for a few days and then it comes back to life with a few replies in one day. I'm glad we're making you feel welcomed! It's not everyday we see someone like you joining, and one who is so open-minded as a heterosexual. Your advice is definitely appreciated, and everyone seems to enjoy your posts, so I'm glad you did decide to join. :]

    We definitely need to advertise! From what I have deduced, there seems to be a lot of people who lurk the thread on a daily basis but don't join/post for reasons that are beyond me. I guess they don't want others thinking they are non-heterosexual? Who knows. That's a brilliant idea, though!

    Rainbow cookies for everyone! .... and toast... rainbow toast!



    Ahhh, I'm glad to hear that story! Seriously, we're living in 2013! Why are there still even discussions about legalizing gay marriage? Nevertheless, that's so fantastic to hear. :D The entire topic surrounding gay marriage is definitely one that carries a lot of criticism and controversy for all unnecessary reasons. No one has lost hope! Luckily, here in the States, Obama is all for gay rights, apparently, so let's see if we can also follow in the UK's footsteps and get this party started. x)

    Oh my gosh, that song is so old! Haha, but it still rocks the house. xD I don't want to gloat, but you're right! We're just like you! We're people! >.< I wish everyone in the world was like you, so unbiased and liberal. Please teach some politicians your ways? No, but really, your awesome! Don't ever change! Thanks for being so kind and caring. :>

    We need all the funny posts we can get with the type of stuff we discuss. :p

    I'll reply to the topic later. It's really nice to have a platform to meet other people with the same interests and to be able to discuss common issues.

    & it's always nice to get people who support us (like you!) to join in and give input. xD

    Also I just read your post in the LGBT Club and it is amazing! Aaaa I love having you there post more often!

    Your post is the only one I read (I'm like two pages behind and at this rate the wall of text is too intimidating to bother reading) and it made me want to think of something to post! I haven't done that in so long... so long. Ah life what is becoming of me.

    LOL the first thing I thought of when I read "I'm part-time" is "yeah, part-time sexy beast". Then I realised the absolute absurdity of somebody being a sexy beast only part of the time and began to laugh. This is the sort of thing that amuses me in my perpetually-tired, mind-wiped state

    Yes I saw First Class at the movies! I think it was actually closer to two years ago . I love Jennifer Lawrence in anything she's in and I just really loved the movie in general! But if you think you're behind, what if I told you that I only just saw the original three X-Men movies shortly before Christmas?

    Thought I'd drop by (hey, you said I should ).
    Your post was actually really good (and hilarious) and I don't know what I did to make me seem interesting, (but I'm glad I did it anyway)
    Thanks for the hugs, (...*hugs back*) and I'm still waiting on my donut :D.

    Mum knew long before she knew I was gay that I wouldn't be having children, on account of I hate them . I was just using that as an example! Though even still I'm sure the thought did cross her mind - whenever the subject of children and how little I wanted them came up, she would always do the condescending "oh you'll change your mind" thing that made me want to snap her like a twig.

    I heard about the English gay marriage vote! As I said in the LGBT Club, I wonder how the Australian government will feel about their 'no' vote last year now that the mother country has its **** together. Bet they feel mighty stupid now!

    It seems the less effort I put in, the funnier I am . That status just came to me during what I refer to as my "Motherbuzz" and that was the best of the lot!

    Alright, well my giranda dreams put to a dismal end, I guess Ta-ayz-slath and Geronimo are free to have their own generic giraffe babies. If this is what it means for everybody to be happy, I'll put down my page of couple names for Geronimo and Clarice (which was really just a piece of paper with the words "Gerice" and "Claronimo" written inside a love heart) and let what will happen happen. Just saying though, coming up with couple names for Ta-ayz-slath and Geronimo is virtually impossible! Tell Clarice that if a man panda doesn't tickle her fancy, I have access to two lions, a Great Dane and a rattlesnake who would all love to meet her.

    HIHIHI!

    I feel the need to remind you once again that I haven't forgotten about you! You should probably begin to assume that this is the case; you are always on my mind and I am always aware when I owe you a VM or a PM. And now I owe you both!

    Your PM is incredibly amusing despite the horrible subject matter, and when I get home tomorrow night (yes, I'm going to work today then straight out afterwards and I won't be home til tomorrow night) I will be replying to both! I SWEAR!

    Biography
    I was born. Then I grew up. But that wasn’t fun, so I grew back down again and started catching Pokémon.

    Most people are decent - and the more friends you make, the better life gets. So if you'd like to say hi, go ahead and do that thing! ;)
    Interests
    I like creating. Writing, drawing, vidding, programming… you name it, there’s a good chance I’ve failed abysmally at it. (Probably had fun though.)

    In general? Philosophising about stuff I’ll never know, reading Brian Michael Bendis, ordering things I have no need of from Amazon, arting around in Photoshop and watching old Munsters episodes. Not all at the same time.

    Snorlax. Since forever. I used to dream about getting a big ol’ Snorlax-shaped beanbag.

    …Who am I kidding? I *still* dream about that.
