Re: “Local LGBT students are forced to look outside of the classroom for guidance

Oh yes, the three steps of arguing with a non-LGBT supporter as written by the rainbow coalition.

Step 1 - Say they are really Gay and do not want to admit it. If that fails...

Step - 2 - Say they have a small penis. if that fails....

Step 3 - Call them 'A Stupid Poopy Head.'

Diverse reporting is one thing, but treating the straight as if THEY are the minority, is not realistic, nor is expecting everyone to support your 'diverse' lifestyles.

However, you are correct in that this is not the forum where I should have outed my feelings toward CCP. I do apologize for that.

Re: “Local LGBT students are forced to look outside of the classroom for guidance

Education of the plight of the LGBT community can inform the ignorant (able to learn but less informed) but can never reach the stupid (lack of the ability to learn), unfortunately. But we can always try.

If anyone doesn't like the diverse reporting of CCP, then a suggestion would be to forever tune into Faux News, read Brietbart online and/or engage any other extreme-right media outlet to get your hard-on. In many cases, anger at our community is just an indicator of a closet case trying to remain hidden, but stupid may apply here.

Re: “Local LGBT students are forced to look outside of the classroom for guidance

I've read the blotter section of the 'Charleston City Paper' for years and finally decided to start reading the rest of the articles contained therein. Frankly, after reading nothing but crap for months supporting LGBT, Brady campaign, BLM, and Socialist political rhetoric, I give up, and will go back to reading the one section that I find I can enjoy in this paper, The Blotter.

Re: “Local LGBT students are forced to look outside of the classroom for guidance

My Name is Lee Anne Leland. I am co-facilitator of the adult transgender support group and am on the board of the youth LGBTQI group, We Are Family. I have first hand knowledge of the struggles these young people go through and I also see the strength they have as they face a room full of adults and address a school board about their concerns. I would have never had the courage to do what they do when I was their age. Take a moment and go to www.waf.org and see all we do on a shoestring budget. And we would not mind if you happened to hit the donation link.

Re: “Skatepark could have 520-foot street course, pro-level bowl

Bmx riders are getting the minority treatment. Pegs are made of metal just like skate trucks. Suck it up and share the park.

Re: “Naked and Unafraid

You have confirmed for all those who wonder that nude does not equal lewd nor does it have any sexual implications at all. We live in Florida and are members of a family nudist park. I will state unashamedly that all people owe it to themselves to try it at least once. Put it on your bucket list and face this universal fear for once in your life. The experience will not be as you imagine. You will feel the freeest you have ever been. You will feel the most accepted and least judged ever. Then make your judgment.

Re: “Gaps remain in the Denzel Curnell suicide narrative

The dots must be joined up between the officer's account, witnesses and evidence. If this happened to your relative or close friend you would want to make sense of this death. It appears the cop is hiding and controlling evidence - just doesn't seem ethical or objective which is a concern for the public

Re: “New app offers fast-pass perks at downtown Charleston bars

Hmmm, I used an app named Hotspot about a month ago that looks like and does the almost the same thing. They offer passes to open bars and happy hour deals.

Re: “Naked and Unafraid

I really enjoyed the article. Congrats on the first big step. After reading your article we are gonna have to come visit the place. Thank you for that. It's sad that so many folks are so afraid to try nudism. I'm convinced and have shared it with a lot of people: "You owe it to yourself to at least try it" I waited till I was over 50 years old. I missed a whole lot of years of freedom. Now we enjoy it as much as possible.

Re: “New app offers fast-pass perks at downtown Charleston bars

CHS9000: I think, for it to work, it needs to do two things:
1. Develop a good customer experience to inspire loyalty
2. Draw customers that pay well

If someone has an extra $20 lying around to dedicate to bonus cover charges, they're probably the type of person to order $12 cocktails instead of $4 cans of Bud Light. An additional, psychological layer would to enhance the sense of exclusivity, already played up by all the velvet ropes downtown. "Okay, we can finally let you four in... even though we're only 20% full. SUCKERS!"

If it is a bad business model, it will wilt. But there's a lot of money to be shaken loose from douchebags, and if these guys find the formula then bully for them.

Re: “Naked and Unafraid

A lot of the people who hang out at Cedar Creek to uncover the beautry of nature are not dissappointed. Aroused by the freedom that comes from seeing others with nothing to hide, one can hardly imagine ever wanting to wear clothes again. And why should you have to? Why should exposing oneself be considered indecent? Perhaps when the bathroom issue is resolved, the right to work and play in the nude might be the next big legal battleground. But for the moment, and for the most part, no nudes is good nudes.

HI Connell. Sorry we miss seeing you that weekend. We were out of state for vacation. We have been members at The Creek for 7 + years and LOVE IT. We have several close friends there at The Creek. Hope to see you and your sister again at The Creek. Until then, Stay Nude.. :-)

Re: “Naked and Unafraid

Jojojo, First rule of nudist/naturist etiquette demands one sit on his/her own towel to protect you from the seat and the seat from you. Splinters hurt.

Tracy, why make it a yearly excursion....they're open all year.

Re: “Naked and Unafraid

A couple of years ago the Cedar Creek Social Committee as a fundraiser sold canvas laundry bags that read: "Nothing to wash but a load of towels!" Carrying and sitting on your own towel is at the top of the list when it comes to nudist etiquette.

One thing of interest... other than the golf cart ride and the slip-slide, I take it you were standing. Sitting where someone else was..."disgusting"
