I added some more questions at the end. For those of you who have already posted this, feel free to answer the extra ones in the comments.

Would you do meth if it was legalized?
Nope. Health aside, if fucks up your looks big time!

-Abortion: for or against?
For. Of course I believe preventative birth control should be practiced first, but really, while it's in the body, a fetus is still just a clump of cells, not a baby.

-Would our country fall with a woman president?
Due to her being a woman alone, no.

-Do you believe in the death penalty?
In some cases, yes. I do think the way it's practiced currently in this country is problematic, as it is handed down very unevenly among race and gender lines, but in many cases, I believe it's warranted. There's no reason Charles Manson should still be alive.

-Do you wish marijuana would be legalized already?
I wouldn't use it myself, but I don't think prohibitive laws work.

-Do you believe in God?
Lots of them.

-Do you think same sex marriage should be legalized?

-Do you think its wrong that so many Hispanics are moving to the USA?
No more so than immigrants from any other country, as long as they are wiling to go by U.S. laws.

-A 12 year old girl has a baby..should she keep it?
Nope. Some might say it should be her decision, but if we say a 12 year old can't vote, drink, join the military, or decide to have sex in the first place, that argument doesn't hold.

-The alcohol age be lowered to 18?
Yes. An adult is an adult.

-Should the war in Iraq be called off?

-Assisted suicide is illegal..do you agree that it should be?
No. In fact, if an adult wants to kill themselves, they should be allowed to.

-Do you believe in spanking your children?
My imaginary children? I won't say you can't, but if it's come to your kid needing to be hit to get them to chill, you've already screwed the parenting pooch.

-Would you burn an American flag for a million dollars?
Of fucking course! A million dollars?! Please!

-A mother is declared innocent after murdering her 5 children in a temporary insanity case...what do you think?
I would need to hear the specifics of the case. However, going back to question 4, a woman who kills her 5 kids would be FAR less likely to get the death penalty that a dad who kills his 5 kids. I think that's bullshit.

-It's between you and a person who is being kept alive by life support machines..one has to die? Who?
Me. I wouldn't want to be kept alive by machines if I couldn't eventually be off them.

Here's my bonus questions:

-Do you believe people who are HIV positive should be allowed to have sex with people who are HIV negative?
Consenting adults should be able to do what ever they want to do to each other. However, if all those who are HIV+ decided "Hey, I'm only going to do it with other poz people.", well, it seems to me that many lives might eventually be saved. I think they should be able to, but I don't think they should.

-Do you think that the gay community is ill served by the presence of drag queens, leathermen, etc. in Gay Pride celebrations, especially as covered by mainstream media?

I admit, sometimes I'm a bit bewildred by the fusing of sexual fetishes with public persona. For instance, I like Yoko Ono and I like getting spanked. Still, I can't see me on a parade float getting my ass whacked to the beat of "Walking On Thin Ice" (even if it was the Danny Tenaglia remix). You don't see leather contingents is other parades (St Patricks Day, Veteran's, 4th of July, etc). Ultimately though, I don't agree with guys who say that only "regular" looking gays should be in these parades so the straights don't get freaked out at home watching TV. I don't think the idea of trying to get tolerance from mainstream society by saying "Us gays are not so different form you!" is a good tactic. Of course we're different. But that's what tolerance means, is living with something you may be uncomfortable with. My dream is to see a gay pride parade with no specific contingents, but everyone, drag queens, leathermen, gay republicans, butch dykes, lipstick lesbians, parents with strollers, all marching in one big group together, celebrating each other as well as themselves.

-Do you believe people who practice S&M are emotionally healthy?
Again, I will fight for the rights of consenting adults to do what they want. Still, I find my self a bit conflicted about this one. On one hand, I think they are healthier than many, as they communicate their desires better than most, and I can appreciate the whole "endorphine" thing, exploring power roles, yada yada yada (see above question). However, I think someone who can't get off unless someone is shitting on them has some emotional problems, and needs therapy.

Do you believe prostitution should be legal?
Yes, but I don't believe that the State should be able to hold back unemployment benefits if you don't want to do it.

-Are you afraid others will judge you from reading some of your answer?
Some may disagree with me, but as long as we can agree to disagree, and treat each other with respect, all's good.
