    So she stole the purse at the mass same sex wedding.

    My question is, is she gay herself? Because that would be rich, if she was straight. In amongst all those gay people, the one with the loose morals happens to be straight.

      @Angry Bill From her Facebook, it looks like she had a friend who was one of the couples getting married. Who cares if she is straight or gay?

      @TO Only in the sense that some perceive homosexual behaviour to be immoral. Kind-of like a Jerry Fallwell / Jim & Tammy Faye moment.

    Was the purse owned by a straight female or was it owned by a gay male or was it owned by a transgender male or was it being held by a straight male or or was it being held by a gay female for her wife or was it being held by a transgender female for her wife or was it being held by a male cross dresser or was it owned by the girl caught driving impaired in Rob Fords Escalade?

      @Was the purse Girls who are boys
      Who like boys to be girls
      Who do boys like they're girls
      Who steal bags from the boys
