A Friday cute moment

Timothy Kincaid

June 8th, 2012

The Telegraph ran a really stupid article about some completely bogus poll (biased language – push questions – meaningless sample) paid for by Catholic Voices (why are they such liars? Really, do they honestly think that God is hunky-dory with deception in his name?) And the author didn’t question a single claim. I could go on for pages about just how invalid this is, but it’s Friday so I’ll just let it go for this thread (though I may take it up elsewhere). but you can see it here.)

However, they did use this photograph. And, considering that the big news yesterday was about Denmark voting for marriage, without reading the article I responded to the pic. And my immediate thoughts were, “How cute.. and, yep, they’re Danes.”

It’s called “The Telegraph” because that’s about how up-to-date they are.

Adorable picture.

Why are they so much like Danes? Is it the marzipan-like complexion?

To me these two have a look of unabashed happiness. They have absolutely no body-awareness or concern about what anyone else thinks. They are just perched there on their cake in dorky haircuts with too-big smiles completely enjoying their day. Definitely Danes.

And that explains my haircut. Though, with how much I paid for these veneers I get to grin.

It’s one of those words I usually avoid using, but it is the only one that fits them; they are adorable. And this, from your link: “..passed with the support of 85 of the country’s 111 MPs.” makes all Danes seem especially warming and cuddly to me right now. How wonderful it would be to see a similar three quarters plus vote in Congress.

“Meaningless Sample” – Do explain
“Biased Language” – Do explain
“Push Questions” – Do explain

Seriously Tim, what is wrong with the poll apart from the fact that you don’t like the answers?

I don’t enough Danes. It just brings Ren & Stimpy to mind for me:

Peter,

My analysis of the poll was provided on another thread. As was indicated above by “you can see it here“.

What Are Little Boys Made Of?

In this original BTB Investigation, we unveil the tragic story of Kirk Murphy, a four-year-old boy who was treated for “cross-gender disturbance” in 1970 by a young grad student by the name of George Rekers. This story is a stark reminder that there are severe and damaging consequences when therapists try to ensure that boys will be boys.

Slouching Towards Kampala: Uganda’s Deadly Embrace of Hate

When we first reported on three American anti-gay activists traveling to Kampala for a three-day conference, we had no idea that it would be the first report of a long string of events leading to a proposal to institute the death penalty for LGBT people. But that is exactly what happened. In this report, we review our collection of more than 500 posts to tell the story of one nation’s embrace of hatred toward gay people. This report will be updated continuously as events continue to unfold. Check here for the latest updates.

Paul Cameron’s World

In 2005, the Southern Poverty Law Center wrote that “[Paul] Cameron’s ‘science’ echoes Nazi Germany.” What the SPLC didn”t know was Cameron doesn’t just “echo” Nazi Germany. He quoted extensively from one of the Final Solution’s architects. This puts his fascination with quarantines, mandatory tattoos, and extermination being a “plausible idea” in a whole new and deeply disturbing light.

Testing The Premise: Are Gays A Threat To Our Children?

Anti-gay activists often charge that gay men and women pose a threat to children. In this report, we explore the supposed connection between homosexuality and child sexual abuse, the conclusions reached by the most knowledgeable professionals in the field, and how anti-gay activists continue to ignore their findings. This has tremendous consequences, not just for gay men and women, but more importantly for the safety of all our children.

Straight From The Source: What the “Dutch Study” Really Says About Gay Couples

Anti-gay activists often cite the “Dutch Study” to claim that gay unions last only about 1½ years and that the these men have an average of eight additional partners per year outside of their steady relationship.
