results of gay poll; new poll on blogging

the people (YOU) have responded! you are decisively opposed to gay marriage and gay couples’ adoption of (as-of-yet) mentally stable children. this is mostly because you would rather such phrases as “who’s your daddy?” be kept to the basketball courts and batters boxes of america–as trash talk. you would rather not force any child to ask this question over and over to himself as he muffles his ears to sleep each night. of the 25 votes cast over 10 nail-biting days, these are the complete results in response to the question, “what would happen if gay couples could marry and adopt children?”

– – – – – – – – – –

  • world would end. fire, earthquakes, godzilla, you name it……..16% (4 votes)
  • awkward moments at their kids’ sleepovers………………………..16% (4)
  • i dunno. let’s try it for a generation and see………………………….0% (0)
  • i dunno. let’s not try it yet…………………………………………………..4% (1)
  • religious celibates are the real family destroyers!…………………..0% (0)
  • great idea. what are we waiting for?……………………………………8% (2)
  • abortion would need to be illegal to ensure enough kids………..8% (2)
  • dislike the new use for the phrase “who’s your daddy?”……….36% (9)
  • tired of debate, would prefer coma…………………………………….12% (3)
  • – – – – – – – – – –

    again, this poll showed the strength of our catholic readership, with no votes cast denouncing religious celibates. i put that on there as a jab at some guy on this board, who wonders whether people abstaining from sex completely is more of an affront to the traditional family than intragenderal mating.

    despite our generally conservative audience, “the world would end” got suprisingly few votes. perhaps many were confused by the reference to godzilla. maybe i should have put “locusts” in there. or “crickets.”

    three voters would prefer to be completely unconscious rather than have to hear another word about it.

    now, on to our new poll. i have tried to limit my sarcasm this time, and actually offer some real choices (thanks to doug for his unrestrained criticism). if i’ve left anything out, please say so in the comments section. this poll is about blogging. go here for the painful truth about blogging.

    1. Just a suggestion

      You left the word “left” out. That’s my only suggestion.

    2. thanks, kerri. all better.

      These gay souls are defected. Burn them for few thousands years in hell , they will rise again and do the same thing. Burn them forever. They are over the limits. Enough said!!

    4. i dunno if we can judge whether they’ll burn in hell or not.

      who knows, with all the things i’ve done, whether or not god would throw ME in the incinerator first (before he even gets to the gay folks).

      but poking another guy in the pooper for any reason (love or otherwise) is gross IMO.
