    “To talk of many things:
    Of shoes—and ships—and sealing-wax—
    Of cabbages—and kings—
    And why the sea is boiling hot—
    And whether pigs have wings.”

        Because he's saving that one for himself, since he really is the biggest pk in the world.

          Methinks there's going to be a huge backlash in this country. You can push people just so far. Though the outcome of that worries me...

              So it's just a bunch of bigots who are upset about this? Not much to be concerned about then.

                Why do we need a national monument to a sexual proclivity? Is there a national monument to heterosexual marriage for example? How about one to sex in general? Why does homosexual sexual activity deserve special recognition on a national level?

                  Yeah, this is just more entitlement mentality bull. It's not offensive, it's just dumb. If we're building monuments to sex then you might as well be building a monument for my tactical accomplishments in Star Wars Armada.

                    Well, that was actually a pretty popular pattern for monuments going all the way back to ancient Egypt.

                      I thought it is meant to be a monument honouring those who were involved in the gay rights movement. Can you see the difference?

                        And, the purpose of that movement was to... what?

                        Give equal rights to homosexuals to publically practice their sexual choices? To allow homosexuals to enter into legal sexual relationships, like marriage?

                        It is you that can't see the similarity.

                            No the only type, if we really wanted to stick our collective heads up our collective asses we could start a discussion about the spire vs the arch as a monument.
