. . . and don’t the homosexuals use “queer” themselves? More of the double standard. This country will burn for showing off its sin like Sodom.

So what?
I am so sick of people caving because some homosexual person or liberal is offended.

Yes. I guess we have to say “-—— Eye for the Straight Guy” when referring to it now, per the PC crowd.

Too hold for a reeducation camp - also this won’t look good on her resume when she goes before the death panel to get her hip replacement approved.

Why? She did nothing wrong. The homosexuals call themselves queer.

Calling something by it's real name is the first step towards enlightenment. This woman was on the right track. She should have been promoted for it.

Queer is a little harsh, pansy would show more sensitivity.

As seen from inside police agencies during the ‘90s, there were some back then who replied, “Are you homophobic?” to any perceived negative implications about homosexuality. They proceeded to push conservative straights out of that line of work. Also quite a bit of political push against men from combat/small arms units of the Army and Marines then and since (those who trained for combat instead of more technical specialties).

How could you possibly insult a queer by calling one a queer? Probably like the predatory queers in the Catholic church being called pedophiles instead of predatory queers.

Yes but much like our minorities it is only OK when they call themselves queers and such. When they do it it’s not offensive, it is an endearment! It is only offensive when those outside of the “special” group use it. Personally I find the militant members of the group with their in your face activities and hedonism beyond offensive.

Does this mean that the straight officers considered working with a queer to be a hostile environment?

Bureaucrats and people who actually do the work? No. They tend to retire at age 50 and collect enormous pensions, which increase rapidly due to generous COLA allowances (it's in the union contract), for the next 35 years. By the time he passes away, a sanitation worker who never made more than $35,000 a year emptying garbage cans into a truck could have a pension of $150,000 a year.

Elected officials? Yes, and it happens on both sides of the great political divide. It's hard to let go of the power and the perks. And in those closely divided political districts, wards and towns, a younger candidate with a less well-known name may not be able to hold on to the seat.
