"Same sex attraction" (SSA) is a term used mostly by conservative Christians to avoid using the term gay when referring to men who are attracted to men or men who have sex with men (MSM). Often, SSA refers to gay men only, and not lesbian, bisexual, or transgendered persons.

Unlike many mainstream mental health practitioners and associations which do not think homosexuality is a disease or mental illness, groups which use the term SSA often believe that all persons are heterosexual and homosexual thoughts or sexual relations are deviant. What most people would consider to be a "gay person" is a "heterosexual with a homosexual problem" for many who use the term SSA.

Those who use the term SSA deny the reality that the vast majority of LGBT people can't be "cured" of their sexual orientation.
(Cheap documentary. Bob's house. Non-religious gay neighbor Frank over for a beer.)

Bob (alone to the camera): I once struggled with same sex attraction. Unlike Frank, I have a lovely white picket fence house, an adoring wife, three loving children, and new life in Jesus!

Frank (from another room, waking up Bob's computer): Dude, you have a Manhunt account? I'm mentally scarred by your stretch marks. You ain't getting booty with these shots!

Bob (running to the computer): I AM NOT GAY. I am doing research for my reparative therapy group about the evils of online addiction to the homosexual agenda!

Frank (to Bob): get me another Schlitz. We need to talk.

Theoretically, no gay Republican politicians exist because the GOP is a pro-"family values", christianist party which despises LGBT people.

In reality, about 45.3412% of male Republican politicians (and climbing) rilly want some of that viking love but act like homophobic dicks in public in a desperate attempt to hide their secret attractions. 'Til they get caught in a "compromising position", that is.
"_I am not gay!_" -- protest of self-identified not-gay gay Republican IN state senator Phil Hinkle, who attempted to have a business sexual relationship with a young man Hinkle contacted on craigslist. Hinkle was subsequently outed to his wife by the other man after Hinkle gave the man his smartphone in a state of panic. (2011)

Play on World of Warcraft, a multi-user online RPG known to cause video game addiction. Addiction symptoms include long stretches of uninterrupted game play (12+ hours a day not uncommon), neglect of nutrition and bodily hygeine, social avoidance, job loss, academic failure, financial difficulties, child abuse or neglect, and possible marital separation or divorce.

The US Drug Enforcement Administration should reclassify World of Warcraft as a Schedule I drug (highly addictive, no medicinal benefit).
*Cue Sgt. McGruff anti-drug PSA jingle*

Users are losers and losers are users, so no Warcraft, no World of Warcrack!

A marriage of a man and a woman where one spouse is heterosexual and one spouse is homosexual.

Often the homosexual marries the heterosexual in an attempt to "cure" their sexual attraction to the same sex. Religion, family expectations, and a desire to have children often influence a homosexual person's decision to wed a person of the opposite sex.

I use the term "homosexual" and not LGB because many same-sex attracted people that marry a person of the opposite sex do not self-identify as gay, lesbian, or bisexual. Many also prefer to stay in the closet.

Many, but not all, of these marriages end in severe marital conflict, separation, or divorce.
Sandy suspected that Steve was gay for a long time, but couldn't tell for sure until she found his Manhunt account on the family computer. Now she's certainly in a mixed orientation marriage. Sandy's hired a lawyer without Steve's knowledge.

Citizen's Band radio. Public radio service in the 11 meter shortwave band. In North America, the frequencies are 40 channels from 26.965 kHz to 27.405 kHz in 10 kHz steps. AM (amplitude modulation) or SSB (single sideband) modes may be used. A CBer may not use more than 5 watts on AM or 12 watts PEP on SSB, yet the power restrictions are often flouted.

The FCC (US radio regulatory agency) once required licenses for CB. The popularity of CB in the 70s resulted in much illegal operation. The FCC dropped licensing requirements in the early 1980's.

North American CB today is a wasteland of cursing, vulgarity, sexual innuendo, jamming, music broadcasting, and heavily distorted audio due to improper radio modifications. Amateur radio (ham radio) operators have a particular dislike for CBers and CB lingo. CBers sometimes transmit illegally on ham radio frequencies and are often caught by vigilante hams with radio direction finding equipment. Ex-CBers who get ham licenses are often ostracized for using CB lingo on the air. It is a grave insult to call an American ham operator a CBer.
Heard on CB radio channel 14: (shouting, incomprehensibly distorted audio) "Roger roger breaker breaker 14 hear my radidio come on come on"

Ham 1: "Did you hear that new ham on the repeater? He was using CB lingo like 'what's your 20?'"

Ham 2: "Yeah, I'll have to pull him aside at the next hamfest and talk to him about it."

Brutal Spanish dictator (1947-1975) that ran a fascist nightmare police state. Also known as Generalissimo or El Caduillo (The Leader). Admirer of Hitler and Mussolini.

Also: Darling of the hyper-right Catholic Traditionalist or Integrist set. Franco was a great patron of the Roman Catholic Church. Some extreme fundamentalist Catholics candy coat Franco's regime as a Catholic monarchical paradise on earth, when in fact it was just another example of a soul and life crushing totalitarian state.
Catholic fundie: Generalissimo Francisco Franco's reign was a great example of a Catholic Monarchy! Democracy is selfish since most people vote for their depraved self-interests. A benevolent Catholic king will create a moral state!

Sane agnostic: (sarcasm) Yeah! A murderous secret police, extreme censorship, death camps, arbitrary imprisonment and execution, and a megalomaniacal despot! Yep, sure beats free speech, freedom of religious assembly, and due process any day!

The supposed "commoner name" of the reigning Monarch of England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, and the Commonwealth Realms.

People who call Queen Elizabeth II "Betty Windsor" are either anti-monarchy, small-r republican, apathetic, or satirists.
English monarchist: Her Royal Highness will visit this august country of Canada in a fortnight.

American: Dude, I just go to school here. I'm not Canadian. Why should I care anyway? Betty Windsor's just a person, like anyone else.

English monarchist: How dare you sully our most Serene and Exalted Monarch of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth Realms with a made-up commoner name!

American: Let's get real. She eats out of Tupperware every morning at breakfast.
