35. It's the equality. They can't stand it.

To the ones who have a probablem, marriage is where a stronger party is joined to a weaker party. They assume those are respectively, a man and a woman. Because every man deserves his servant.

Anything other then that is wrong, and deserves an accompanying slur.

Two men? (They're f*ggots). Two women, (l*sbos, & who wears the pants? ie, is pretending to be stong). Straight or gay marriages where the/a woman is dominant? (she's a d*ke).

Outstanding. Congratulations and thank you. underpants May 18 #1
