He has the voice and the body language. I'm not trying to be mean-spirited at all, I actually feel really bad for the kid and am so happy he escaped that cult. I guess I'm mostly just interested because if he is gay, this would prove that the "gay accent" and gay mannerisms are not learned, as this kid was never exposed to them growing up FLDS. Thoughts?
I cannot open the link but I think I know who he is and if his name is shaggy holm then nope he isn't gay.... I know him
It says his name is Willie Steed.
r1 - Do you just patrol the internet looking for FLDS mentions or what?
Haha nope....I'm here all day
Not exactly no.... the learned gay voice is more valley girl.
Stop giving consideration to those who say gay voice/mannerism is learned. Why would anyone talk like that if they could help it? Anyone who questions it as not an innate trait is delusional and should never be sought out for advice on anything.
What a sweet kid...
Of course, LD$ don't care about that - slavish devotion to the cult is all that is required.
I was thinking...the more male children a woman has, the greater their chances become of being gay. And these FLDS women pop out kids like wet Gremlins (one woman on that 20/20 special had 18 kids). So they must be producing baby gays at an alarming rate if the science is correct.
Somebody ought to file suit against Utah for that no oversight of homeschooling law. It has to violate the federal Constitution's equal protection clause.
I know willy and he isn't gay at all. Don't judge people
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
