Why do people always talk about their sexuality?

    I don't know why people want to talk about their sexual orientation and how there is no God. It is like a meeting place for those who want to hook up or get someone going by the subject matter they post. Then when they get responses they don't like, they get hateful. rude or whatnot. What is the point of talking about or posting a subject matter that doesn't bring meaningful education to those who read it?

    My questions for this Forum Topic is....

    Should HP not allow topics/comments related to sexual orientation or
    religion in the forums? 

    Why or why not?

      Hubpages and some "writers" here are glittering jewels of censorship, I'm sure you are about to find out.

        Well, I will believe this when they censor you and stop following my threads please! and if the "writers" here are jewels of censorship than what is the HP officals here for then?

      Although I've seen a very few threads about personal sexual orientation, the vast majority are about the hate, violence and rights of those with a different orientation than most people.  As such, I find them perfectly suited for public comment.

      Threads on how there is no God are probably fewer than how there IS a God or at least in what the hypothetical God has done.  I find both interesting not so much in the subject itself but in the reasoning behind the posts being made. 

      There is, of course, no reason to become hateful or rude but most people do neither.

        Interestingly. I have found some who get kind of heated sometimes. Thank you for your comment.

          Yes they do, and that is where I generally just laugh or leave.  I'm not interested in a flame war and that's what some of them degenerate into.

      In my opinion and for the sake of decency, they shouldn't allow topics about sexual orientation, no.   But they do.   And that's not only their rules, but (seems to be) the personal views of most of the rule-makers as evidenced by responses from them. 
        Why or why not? you asked.......   Eh......why not is because, like I said, for the sake of common decency.
      So, no, no topic is taboo.   
      As far as religion, open discussion about religion should always be allowed.  That isn't even in the same category as discussion about sexuality.
      Or.......almost nothing is taboo anyway.........
      The only discussion topic that's taboo that I've seen so far is the posting of pictures of unborn babies along with the facts of abortion being the horrid thing (murder) that it is.     They don't seem to like that.   At least that's how it's been so far.    Strange, huh?   I thought any person who could handle talk about unnatural sexual activities could surely handle a picture of a child naturally in a womb.   But maybe that's changed;  who knows?  It's been a while since someone tried posting a pic like that.



      In response to your title question of why do people always talk about their sexuality..........?
      I think it's several factors, foremost among them being two things-----
      agenda
      and
      exhibitionism
      Kinda like streaking and mooning people, only verbally since they can't do it literally.
      Oh that's right--------I guess outright nudity is taboo too.    That's one good thing at least!  lol

    Eh, why not?  Some people find it entertaining, for lack of a better word.  Others find that it's an acceptable venue for talking about how they feel about the issue.  I get your point, Jo.  Unfortunately, people like to argue.  They like to make their points.  They like to be heard.  Even if no one pays attention, they feel that they've somehow done their part in 'the war.'  Problem is, people like you and me just don't feel like it's a war to begin with.  It's just a natural part of life - that need to feel that you have something to fight against - or for.

    I think some people just like to talk about what interests them, maybe it helps get their creative juices flowing or maybe they just like a good debate.  I just avoid topics that I don't want to talk about.  I'd never tell someone that what they feel or believe in or have faith in is wrong... unless they believe that like.. murdering kittens is a good thing... that might be a little weird. 

    You know, sometimes people just need the release of being in a heated, passionate discussion.  And I think that online forums are a good outlet for that.

      Thank you to everyone that left a comment. Just wondering the need for certain topics to be flooded on here.

    "get someone going by the subject matter they post. Then when they get responses they don't like" - they take it to "Should HP not allow topics/comments related to sexual orientation or religion in the forums? Bait and which.

    All subjects should be open for discussion.  If you do not want to discuss it, move along instead of trying to force your views on others.
