    Where did you get that idea from? Odd, as your reading comprehension is usually above par. You've been having some problems with it of late though. Do you have an inner ear infection?

    No, I just don't know why it's such a big deal and that's what I'm trying to ask. It proves nothing by itself. Wear it or don't, but don't make decisions about people depending on whether they wear one or not.

    Again, there was nothing said about "decisions" regarding people that don't wear them. The suggestion was offered as a conversation starter, and a positive way to discuss the changes in this country and what they mean to us.

    And I participated in the conversation.

    Yes you did, with non sequitors. But properly punctuated.

    Thank you. Sequitur is with a "u", not an "o". :p

    It proves you're gay if you wear it - if you're not a politician. In fact - it is "Liberace gay" adj.

    1. Suggesting a great degree of lameness or wussy-ness.

    2. Someone or something with flamboyant homosexual tendencies; recalls uber-gay piano player, Liberace.

    :p
