36. Hmm... is there an "acquiescent and agreeable" unit-system to quantify positions with?
I mean, it would be awful to think that I'd mis-labeled my qualified estimation of the "acquiescence and agreeability" of my "gay friends"... that would be like making a judgement for myself about whether or not separate-but-'equal' is good enough.

I'm hoping for something simple, so I don't have to strain myself... maybe a 1-10 rating system- or maybe a 1-4 if you have one.

Ohh, and maybe some of those other posters might've left behind a pamphlet or something, indicating the numerical "acquiescence and agreeability" rating-average that one has to have amongst "gay friends" in order to justify condescending political expediency arguments? I mean, there has to be a rigorous system of justification behind the behavior, right otherwise there would be repercussions...
