    Again, your assumptions are wrong. I don't have disdain for Bill Gates (but I don't get money from him, unless you are referring to the fact that when his products go astray, I fix them for a price, then yes I get money from him), Warren Buffet, and other "rich people" that are actually doing humanitarian work (not just because of the tax breaks) that I personally don't get money from.

    You should probably stop with all the "guessing", since it's obvious that you're not very good at it.

    Yes! Thank you. That was exactly the kind of thing I was looking for though I question how much the Log Cabin folk actually had to do with that.
    You're welcome! Glad I could help!

    Which Republican group would be responsible for the Nevada platform change if it wasn't the Log Cabin Republicans?

    The problem is kids are allowed to be put threw the quack therapy.
    Mix with it should not be even allowed to advertise as it is snake oil but that being said parents should not be allowed to make their kids go threw this.

    No it is not always the right of the parent. There are multiple cases that the rights of the child have to be protected. This is an example of it.

    Just like it parents are not allowed to beat their kids for punishment. By you logic it is with in the rights of the parents to punish as they see fit. Reality is their are limits.

    The parents would not have that option in California and New Jersey since there are laws that ban the practice in those states.

    I'm not sure in other states. Perhaps there is nothing that would stop the parents from making that decision.

    Whatever it is you're doing, you're not doing it nearly as well as you think you are, whether it's an attempt at trolling or an attempt at trying to figure me out.

    It's not my fault that many people (such as yourself) are brainwashed into believing that life and happiness is about amassing as much wealth as humanly possible. I personally believe that amassing a healthy balance is what life and happiness is all about, and that includes on occasion helping out your fellow man/woman/child. No one got their success strictly on their own, there were teams of people that helped them amass their wealth, or some other support system (and that includes a support system compromised of those political influences that were corrupted).

    I had my family willing to let me live in their home while I went to school and worked a full time job. Did I put in my own hard work? Yes, I used to work 84 hour weeks while going to school full time. Do I forget that there were people that helped me along the way? Sometimes, but not to the point that I feel I can turn my back on all those around me and proclaim "every man for himself". Then again, I'm not an egomaniac.

    Well, there is GOProud. But why do you think it has to be an internal Republican group and not a response to the new political landscape reality on this issue? There are external forces at play here too.

    I thought GOProud was disbanded, but if it's back in business, then that's good news.

    I'm looking for an internal Republican group because only a Republican can actually change the party's platform. For example, Democrats can't walk into a GOP convention and tell Republicans what to believe. Security would throw them out for trespassing.

    In any case, has your view on the Log Cabin Republicans changed?

    No not really. I still think they have about as much impact and clout with the party as a flea farting in Florida. Let me know when the national party has changed it's platform and let me know when things like this Texas thing stop.

    Also you didn't address the external factors. Do you really think that the conversations outside the party don't start discussions inside the party? I suspect the Nevada Republicans are a fair bit more progressive than their Texas counterparts and see the writing on the wall a bit more clearly.

    I'm also doubtful that any group can infiltrate the GOP and make them a more tolerant group. The religious faction of the GOP is too broad a base for the GOP to turn its back on them. The only way you're going to convert the GOP is by converting the religious zealots that make up the GOP, and that would be like trying to convert them to another religion.

    What has me scratching my head is how any American religious entity can display an intolerance towards any group of people when you have religious groups in the Middle East that practice that same intolerance but more drastically. With some religious backed governments going so far as executing homosexuals, I can't help wonder why the religious bodies in the U.S. would show even an inkling of aligning themselves with some of these fundamentally un-American countries.

    What's also a little disturbing is how many of these countries believe in suppressing women's rights and women's education (a topic that checkers the GOP's history as well). That being said, I honestly believe that if the GOP wants to be successful in the future, it needs to distance itself from all these religious zealots that have hijacked the party. If the party can sever its ties to the pulpit, convince people that it's going to leave people to their own devices and not try to legislate morality, and not try to be the exclusive party of big business, I could see myself re-considering it as a viable party in the future. Although, I don't have much hope for this party's future given what's currently driving it.

    There's a reason some refer to them as the "American Taliban". It's two sides of the same coin. What keeps the religious extremism in check in the western world, is that western countries are not structured as theocracies. Could you imagine if we were? It wouldn't be pretty.

    I think I touched the topic of external factors when I gave the example of Democrats going to a GOP convention to tell the Republicans what to believe. Security would throw them out.

    In the example you gave, you mention the Nevada Republicans as being more progressive. I would like to point out that the Nevada Republicans are still Republicans, so they are an internal group within the GOP.

    Perhaps if you could clarify what you mean by external factors, I might be able to answer your question better. It would also help if you could give an example of internal factors.

    Thank you for pointing that out! Finally, someone who understands! It's definitely a tough job, and you're not going to turn the whole GOP around overnight.

    This is why I admire the perseverance of the Log Cabin Republicans. They have an uphill battle in front of them, but for over 30 years, they have kept true to the cause. Even the religious zealots can't throw them out of the party.

I know it may be hard for people that have been brainwashed to believe that this must be some sort of tree-hugging-hippie-socialistic-voodoo to believe that this is actually good for our society, but trust me, it's good for our society when we have a thriving middle class.

    South Carolina DMV tells gender non-conforming teen he can’t take driver’s license photo with makeup -- The Washington Post (article link)

    The South Carolina department of motor vehicles prevented Chase Culpepper, a 16-year-old teen, from taking a driver's license photo while wearing makeup. Culpepper is gender non-conforming, but the DMV said that he "did not look the way a boy should" with makeup on.

    By law, South Carolina does not allow people to alter their appearance for a driver's license photo. This helps to fight criminal activity. There are exceptions, but only for religious or medical reasons.

    Ironically, by removing his makeup, Culpepper's photo on his license would not match what he looks like on a regular basis.

    If that's the way the little fella looks every day, he should be allowed to have that as his picture. Otherwise, they must tell all the women to strip off their basecoat at the door.

    OMG I would LOVE to see all women be required to remove their makeup for their driver's license pictures, and then at a bar, you could tip the bartender an extra $20 to tell you how the girl on the other end of the bar looks in her driver's license picture...... haha

    By the way, just a tip, if the person is not conforming to any gender, please use gender neutral pronouns to boot (they/them or whatever).
