From the comments:
"Apparently, you're too liberal/black/gay to make your own decisions. Instead, some douchebag homophobic redneck from Kansas will tell you what you can and can't do."Ooooh, snap! I got served! Somebody has demanded satisfaction!
Because being from Kansas automatically makes you a redneck, right?
Ah, the two-edged sword of prejudice rears it's ugly yet increasingly familiar head...

OK, everybody ready? Let's Put My Prejudices To The Test!
Sam Brownback was born September 12, 1956, and grew up on the family farm near Parker, Kansas, where his family still farms. In high school, Brownback served as state president and as a national officer of the Future Farmers of America. Later he received a Bachelor of Science degree with honors in Agricultural Economics from Kansas State University...OK... so far so good...
As a member of the House of Representatives, Brownback took a lead role among the freshman class of 1994 in pursuit of his philosophy to reduce the size and intrusiveness of the federal government, reform the Congress, and to help return the country to its traditional values.As we all know, this is code for "I hate the gays... FOR JESUS."
Additionally, Brownback fights to protect our children and our culture by protecting traditional marriage through the Federal Marriage Amendment, by nominating judges that strictly uphold the Constitution instead of activist judges bent on rewriting the law through his position on the Judiciary Committee, by holding the media industry responsible for violent and sexual content affecting our children through the Broadcast Decency Enforcement Act and the CAMRA Act, and by protecting the unborn through the Unborn Child Pain Awareness Act, the Cloning Prohibition Act, and the Prenatally Diagnosed Conditions Awareness Act.Etc. etc. etc. I have to say, it's looking pretty good for James' prejudices.
Just to be sure, I looked up the wikipedia definition of "redneck."
A slang term, usually for a rural white southerner who is politically conservative, racist, and a religious fundamentalist. This term is generally considered offensive. It originated in reference to agricultural workers, alluding to how the back of a person's neck will be burned by the sun if he works long hours in the fields.Check, check, check.
And, ladies and gentlemen, the coup de grace: a photo from that same Brownback bio page.
So there you go. The moral of the story is my preconceived notions are always right, bitch*.
How does it feel, random detractor? How does it feel to be made my bitch? Feels good, doesn't it?
Oooh yeah. It does.
