Lets have some fun! Care to help Kansas come up with a new slogan based on pending legislation there?

Asked by ibstubro (12249 points ) February 12th, 2014

Based on another thread, I refer you to Kansas House passes bill that would allow service refusal to same-sex couples on religious grounds.

If it passes, won’t Kansas need a new slogan. Perhaps, “Welcome to Kansas, the State of Altered Reality.”

Try to keep on point, keep it light and lets not flame (we could be refused service!) Agree or disagree with the legislation, but keep it in slogan form?

If we get a lot of good posts, I’ll send the link to the Governor of Kansas.

Forget slogans. I would get a job as a waitress and demand a kiss from all of the hot men before I take their orders. You know, just to be sure.

I’ve been to Kansas and the vibes were not friendly toward longhaired visitors I found.

The whole state is cut up into squares and rectangles and the roads were at right angles for the most part.

They pretty much want to be left alone since they judge outsiders harshly in fear that they might introduce crop circles or mutilate cows or , god forbid, smoke rings;)

I can remember when Kansas was considered a relatively progressive place, with top notch public schools, and a population which would have revolted openly at the suggestion that evolution be removed from the curriculum. It must be a terrible thing when, youth, talent and ambition evacuate a formerly prosperous and vibrant corner of the world. Kansas is the poster child for a left behind America, baffled and confused, because their children have fled to the coasts. Old people, in decaying towns of dwindling economies, who have yet to realize that the gay train has left the station of viable issues. I’ve gotten to the point that it’s no longer entertaining poking fun at folks, who through no fault of their own are now relegated to the pile of “losers”. I just read this sort of stuff and wind up feeling kind of worn out.

In case anyone was wondering, Kansas’ official state motto is “Audemus jura nostra defendere” which translates to “We dare defend our rights.”

Pardon given, @Dutchess_III. Thanks for the tip! :)

@Mimishu1995. Your prejudice seems to be showing.

Mimishu1995's avatar

@ibstubro Where did you find that?

Actually the “prejudice” you mentioned is clearer in the Northern and Southern Vietnam, especially in the North. Some Northern people don’t allow homosexuality and look down on Laos and Cambodia. There was even a speech of a “famous” doctor from Hanoi saying homosexuality was some kind of disorder and could be cure! She had to take refuge after that :)

I live in Central Vietnam and I can’t see much of the prejudice. I myself is quite OK with almost everything. Except Chinese goods though, but there’s a reason for it: those Chinese seem to sell all of their worst products for Vietnam. Those products are either poisonous or of bad quality. So Chinese goods prejudice is a universal attitude of Vietnamese now.

Kansas :: This is why our economy is shit.

Most of the good software engineers I know don’t want to live there because of things like this. When google fiber rolled out in Kansas City people were all like “This is the next Silicon Valley”. Turns out that wasn’t the case. People just don’t want to live in a state that hates itself.

I’m so angry about this. They’re going out of their way to make us look like complete morons.

Get this~ This is what Brownback said in praise about the bill ”“Americans have constitutional rights, among them the right to exercise their religious beliefs and the right for every human life to be treated with respect and dignity,” he told The Topeka Capital-Journal.”

Excuse me. I need to throw up now.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

Seriously, his name is Brownback and he’s pushing this agenda? You guys are making this way too easy.

@Dutchess_III

They’re going out of their way to make us look like complete morons.

I’m sure that most jellies and I know that I don’t consider all or even most Kansans to be morons, especially you and any Kansan victims of state-sanctioned bigotry.

Also, I admire the courage and creativity of another Kansan, Aaron Jackson, who bought this house across the street from the WBC.

ibstubro's avatar

I’ll let @Dutchess_III speak for herself, but I think it’s the Kansas leaders that she’s disgusted with. Making the state look backwards and bigoted. Which is the point of this thread, to have a bit of fun poking (so to speak) at the stupid people making and defending stupid, ridiculous laws. I’m from Missouri and I’ve been in the fine state of Kansas many times, and the people aren’t noticeably different from Missourians.

I simply wanted to point out to the Kansas leadership responsible for this (so to speak) tomfoolery how their efforts are viewed around the world.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Oh, I know. But seriously, if I went out of state I would be embarrassed to meet new people and have to tell them I was from Kansas.

I’m really on a rant on fb about this. Is it next November yet?

ibstubro's avatar

To me, it’s a certain faction pandering to their followers. I have no doubt the law would be struck down, then the passers can lament their underdog/abused status.

This isn’t an individual state issue, but a cultural one. The foundation is definitely there for this to occur in most other states too, and my state is no exception. 90% of the people where I live (a small rural PA town) would support this legislation without problem too.

@Dutchess_III Hey, don’t you live there?

ibstubro's avatar

The details contain a link to @Dutchess_III‘s question discussing the legislation, @Paradox25. This was intended as a lighthearted game poking fun at Kansas legislators for being so narrow minded.
