    Thanks Starkville! I’m glad I live here!

  2. Monte Guerdis says:

    Is it funny that Starkville managed to do this meaningless panderous liberal nonsense before it was able to actually provide anyone a reason to live there?

  3. Joel Taylor says:

    Why give this group or any group special recognition? Why not pass a resolution states that the City of Starkville is intolerant of discrimination against anyone in any form? Would this not be sufficient to cover everyone with out singling out any particular group?

    • Brad says:

      It does, if you actually read the resoluition by the City…

      The City of Starkville declares it the public policy to respect the inherent worth of every person, without regard to a person’s race, color, religion, national origin, sex, gender identity and expression, age marital status, sexual orientation, familial status, veteran’s status, disability or source of income.

    • Eddy Collins says:

      No a blanket statement of nondiscrimination against “anybody” wouldn’t be sufficient because many people still consider gender identity and sexuality a “choice” (which it isn’t) and as such, they conclude that discrimination against LGBTs is acceptable because “they” don’t “count.” Starkville is sending a clear message that yes, “they” do.

    Why give this group or any group special recognition? Why not say that the City of Starkville is intolerant of discrimination against anyone and in any form? Would that not be sufficient to cover everyone?
