The term "breeder" is offensive. It's no different than someone straight calling you a faggot.
No it is not.
Don't engage in hyperbole that fails the laugh test.
It's crude and stupid, but I doubt if anyone anywhere on God's green earth has been taunted or been discriminated against by being called "breeder." Being called a faggot is accompanied by all the negative connotations, historical discrimination and more that gays have experienced over the years.

I am not blaming Bush for the 'Dont ask, dont tell' policy. That's Clinton's fault.
Clinton can be faulted for a political misstep very early in his Presidency, and for being a coward when Republicans (McCain, Colin Powell, John Warner, Rush Limbaugh, etc. etc.) and Sen. Sam Nunn (then Democratic Senator from GA
) jumped on him and made the repeal of the anti-gay law a big issue.
As for the ban on gays in the military, blame that Avatar of the GOP, Ronnie Reagan for that.
Colin Powell, of course, recently stated that his obnoxious and vehement opposition to gays in the military back in 1993 was misplaced. Doesn't he always have a reawakening once its no longer a political liability for him? The man has no spine. He's a political hack through and through who will say and do anything to please his political masters, and Iraq has proved that once again.

Just another excuse for Superfly (and whomever else - if the combat boot fits . . .) to poke a stick at PotUS - and this case, unwarranted . . . there are just times when it gets excessively monotonous.
Much like your bobble-headed defense of the PotUS which entails nothing more than making accusations against those who accuse Bush for doing nothing in order to appease his religious right worshippers.
