Ohio man urges the state to drop affiliation with buckeye because it’s a bisexual plant
An Ohioan, by the name of Jim Flechtner, responded to an article in the “Just Ask” section of the Findlay Courier in Ohio, to unite his fellow statesmen in a rally to banish the Buckeye as the state of Ohio’s tree, and The Ohio State University’s team name, because the Buckeye tree is apparently bisexual.
Something in the “Just Ask” column (Page A3, May 29) disturbed me,” Flechtner wrote to the editor. According to the column, “the Ohio buckeye, Aesculus glabra, bears flowers with both male and female organs on the same tree. It is a monoecious species.”
I couldn’t believe this, so I did some research and, sure enough, a science website (forestry.about.com) states that “the Ohio buckeye is polygamo-monoecious, bearing both bisexual and male flowers.”
The buckeye is our state tree and most of us gladly wear the nickname, “buckeyes.” But it is shameful and unacceptable that a bisexual tree should represent us! We are flaunting the Holy Bible!
I urge everyone to contact their state representative and demand legislation removing the buckeye as our state tree and condemning the use of the term “buckeye” as a nickname for residents of Ohio.
Does anyone know if carnations are bisexual?
Jim Flechtner, Findlay
For the Record: dude is mad at a tree for being gay…
Did the devil put the tree in Ohio Jim? What did he put it there for, so that his worshippers could make necklaces? Come on man, the queer tree isn’t hurting anyone, leave it alone.
You know what you and all the other religious kooks are doing Jim? You’re actually making it cool to be gay and uncool to be religious. Go on Facebook and you’ll see, everyone is siding with the gays. The president of the United States of America jumped off the religion wagon and jumped onto the bandwagon supporting gay marriage because he didn’t want to be affiliated with a bunch of dumb red necks, who discriminate against people for no reason.
He probably also recognized the fact that gay households are unanimously wealthy, typically comprised of two bread winners, with no kids in need of education and tax support. They boost the economy by buying all sorts of expensive clothes, jewelry, haircuts, cars and condos. They eat at five star restaurants and drink expensive pink martinis until all hours of the night. You drain the economy, with your virtuous marriage and your pure household of five kids, supported by welfare and food stamps, going to schools that we pay for. You spend your Saturday nights buying kids clothes at Walmart, with our money.
No one’s behind you Jim, in fact, God spoke to me, arguably for the first time in my life, he told me to tell you, and all the people like you, to stop what you’re doing because you’re making him look bad. You’re making people ashamed of their relationship with him. He said you’re going to hell Jim and you’re going to burn! BURN you idiot.
Or maybe burn for being an idiot; he sort of trailed off at the end…
