Not all of Fremont is pro gay-marriage

If you think some of the blog comments from a few months back were nasty, you should hear some of the voicemails I’ve gotten today about Fremont joining the petition to invalidate Proposition 8.

A few people have been cordial, but others are really mad. They’re talking about bestiality and calling people fags.

I remember around fifth grade or so asking my mother what a faggot was. My mom, whom I’ve never heard curse (that was my grandma’s department),  told me that it was a boy who acted like a girl. 

Not long thereafter, a girl at school got into an argument with a group of boys and one of them called her a faggot. Always one to revel in dispensing newly learned facts, I intervened and explained that actually she couldn’t be a faggot since she wasn’t a boy.

Then they started calling me one.

It was a good lesson that sometimes there is little solace in being technically correct, and that the majority doesn’t always know what it’s talking about.

    Fremont is full of the ignorant, old and hopefully, dying soon bigots who are unable to accept others as people (Afgans, Indians, blacks, Irish, French (hey they WERE right after all), gays etc). Soon these poor ignorant types will be gone and the world will be a better place for it.

    Proposition 8 was, in my opinion wrong.

    Matt Artz -

    can you explain / clarify what are the specific actions Fremont will have to take to “join a lawsuit” ?

    One of the many sad parts of anti-gay bigotry is that straight boys get called “faggot” by these idiots. I certainly got called it enough as a kid.

    “Fremont is full of the ignorant, old and hopefully, dying soon bigots”.

    Who is the hater here?

    It’s amazing to see such hate masquerade in a cloak of tolerance.

    Wow, a lot of hate here, Lars & Freedom.
    Is free spech just ok, as long as they agree with you. Take a long hard look at what you have posted.

    Oh, Feedom (sic): One must only look to the youth of Union City to see what awaits once these “poor ignorant types” are long gone.

    I have a feeling we’re going to get mo’ poorer and a lot more ignorant in the coming years.
