Sometimes a minor facial adjustment is needed. No hard feelings.
I think what you are saying, IN EFFECT, is that a person who has always been attracted to their own sex, and still is ( . . . well, except for that one person several years ago, because they didn't seem to be so opposite at all) is actually straight and not homosexual. No half measures - you either are, or you are not.
I flatly disagree. A person who is almost always attracted to their own sex is perfectly within their rights to identify as homosexual, even if some homosexual "purists" might deny them that right and insist that, at best, they are bisexual. The truth is that those "purists" are just as bisexual as the ones they condemn.
You are trying to put the human experience into an artificial, sharply defined box and it simply doesn't work that way. In sane human beings there is no such thing as black and white. The grey is what allows us to feel compassion and empathy for others. It goes far beyond sexuality, but it does NOT EXCLUDE
sexuality. People who see things as strictly black and white are psychopaths. They completely lack empathy and yet they see that lack as a sign of superiority. It is NOT a sign of superiority - it's a sign of ignorance.
Here's the real deal, as it is currently understood in 2016:
At the very bottom of the triangle, thanks to the nature of geometry, there is only room for one person, and since a community cannot consist of only one person, and because some people genuinely do fall between the cracks, I changed DJ's original triangle to the shaded version quite a few years ago. He approved, AVEN approved, and it has remained a shaded triangle ever since. Until or unless SCIENCE can find a better answer, this is the best we have.
Get with the times, PiF.
A parade of one person isn't a parade. It's just one person making a lot of noise.
In regards to the Tea Party: It's the radical right-wing group that has tried to take over the Republican party, and sadly, has had quite a bit of success at doing so. They first chose to identify themselves with the Boston Tea Party as a way to attempt to present themselves as ordinary citizens rebelling against an unjust government. They failed to do their history homework, but that is no surprise. They are uneducated, paranoid, greedy, bigoted, and yet self-righteous to a nauseating degree.
(By the way, a surprising number of Americans actually do drink tea, although we probably don't do it properly.)
Global warming is real, but only if it is calculated by averaging temperatures taken from all over the globe.
In local areas it is simply climate change, because the hotter averages lead to much more unstable weather and that can cause local weather patterns to oscillate wildly, from hot to cold, dry to wet and back and forth. I'm glad I'm not a meteorologist who has to predict this shit for a living!
