    I doubt there will be much of a boycott, Dollywood and most of the larger organizations have completely denounced the individual. He’s just a terrified old white dude well on his way to being plant feed.

    Dollywood does great Christmas decorations.
    Glad I live close enough to have season passes, if you like coasters pray Lightning Rod is open — it’s down often.

    We are going there for the mountains, not the other stuff.

    Politicians call each other far worse names than "queer" everyday. So some gay "queer" individuals get their panties in a wad about some a comment at a county meeting by the county commissioner and it is national news and the media loves it. So one woman storms out and a round of applause erupts, Sound like this commissioner knows the demographics of his constituents.
    Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg is a cool area to visit, nothing special, once you are outside of the tourist areas this is just rural Tennessee.

    They do have some really cool cabins to rent , the smoky mountains are great, and the go-cart tracks there are some of the best I've been on.

    Dollyworld is a country version of Disneyland.

    Sounds like all this condemning of this local official is coming from outside his voting district.

    True doesn't the Q in LGBTQ stand for "queer"?

    Don't certain elements of homosexuals say " we're hear, we're queer"?

    WTF? That's not the meaning of what I said. People discharge guns all the time during hunting, target shooting, skeet shooting, etc. and none of those are crimes.

    So, WTF are you talking about?

    He's responsible for who he dates-in this case a leftist hollywood actor.

    The trans crowd is going to want to know why.

    So Trump is responsible for the words, behavior, and actions of one or more porn stars that he "dated"?

    No but if Melania physically assaulted and mentally tortured a transgender "woman"-you can BET Trump would be asked about it constantly.

    Well, what you say is true but the fact is the gun's ultimate reason for being is to inflict harm whether or not on an animal, a piece of paper or a piece of clay etc.
    You can answer if you want but this is not the subject of the thread.

    By golly, don't you worry about tourism. The despicable folks in Music City are get'n plenty. Heck, Nashville is one of the fastest growing cities in the USA. Folks moving there got feed up with liberals, socialists, high taxes and all the other BS where they came from. Hope they don't trash the place like they did to other cities run by dems.

    Well you get an A for intellectual dishonesty!

    The Q in LGBTQ is for queer. The second Q in LBTQQIAA is for questioning. Way to redefine a group of peoples sexual identity to make your own political points. You are truly an ally.

    Follow up question. What does queer mean in the LGBTQ community?

    The way I understand it about the Q is it's either/or. To answer your follow up, I don't know.

    False; “Most people can agree with the L, G, B, and T in the acronym LGBTQ+ stand for: lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender. But when it comes to the Q, it gets a little more complicated. According to the Human Rights Campaign, the Q stands for queer. But according to Planned Parenthood, the Q stands for “questioning (or queer).” For PFlag and The Trevor Project, the Q stands for both, equally.

    Even style guides don’t agree. The Associated Press Style Guide notes that the Q stands for “questioning and/or queer,” but the Los Angeles Times’ style guide notes that the Q “most commonly means ‘queer,’ but can also mean ‘questioning.” Similarly, GLAAD’s media glossary notes that the Q “typically means queer and, less often, questioning. [link]”

    And an ally is anyone that stands up for gay people to be treated equally — very few gay people care if someone can identify what various letters in an acronym mean.

    Queer is an umbrella term for people who do not adhere to the heterosexual and cisgender majority. The term queer includes, but is not exclusive to lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, transpeople, and intersex persons, traditionally, this term is derogatory and hurtful, however, many people who do not adhere to sexual and/or gender norms use it to self-identify in a positive way to combat this.

    For another negative icon turned positive is the pink triangle. Once used to identify gay men in holocaust concentration camps is now shown as an issue of pride for some. It can still be used as a sign of oppression however.
