Why There are Gays and Lesbians

Someone asked me why the heck there are gays and lesbians, bisexual or homosexual. Oh yeah, never thought about that. And never knew the answer at all until an old friend of mine emailed me something that somehow would answer that bizarre question.


It's called the Myth of Love... and it answers questions about:

Soulmates...

Gays and lesbians...

Same sex and opposite sex relationship...

and indestructible love..

After reading the origin of gays and lesbians -- The Myth of Love, it somehow made me understand that gay and same sex relationship is not really different from heterosexual relationship. Love has no gender, period.


Why are there gays and lesbians???


"It was said that before, in the origin of times,

there were three sexes; male, female, and rogene.

Original humans do not look like how we

humans look today. Humans before were said to be

twice of each person now,

with two heads, two pair of eyes, two pair of

lips, four hands, four

feet, two bodies, two hearts, and of course two

genitals.

Then, if the person has two V (girl's genitals) , that is a

female. If the person

has two P (men's genitals) , that is a male person. If the

person has both the two

different organs, a V and a P, then

that

person is an androgene.

They said that androgenes were the most

beautiful

people among all

because they have mostly the best features and

characteristics of both the

male and the female.

Because these people dream of being in heaven,

even if they already

have the heavens in their selves, they want to

experience it even for just

a little while. And so they climbed to Mount

Olympus. Zeus got furious

upon seeing the people going up the mountain. He

said, "How dare these

immortals climb our wondrous world? And to think

I'd let them experience

it! Especially now that they do not cherish of

what they have!!!" He

got so mad that he used his lightning bolts to

cut each person in half to

make them weaker enough so as not to continue on

climbing.

The God of Healers healed the wounds of the

people cut in half. And

from then on, everyone started to look out for

their pair the moment they

got down from the mountains.

This is why there is the term "soulmates". Their

bodies, in which their

souls rest, used to be one. Therefore soulmates.

They said that this is also the reason why there

are people who love

their same sex, the gays and lesbians. They are

the males and females

before. And this also explains why gays are

creative, because they are

both males before, they tend to concentrate on

what they lack. The same

thing for lesbians. Because they are both

females

before, they tend to be

strong as not to be underestimated.

Androgenes would be equal to male and female

lovers. That is why

nowadays these couples are the most acceptable,

stronger, and the most

beautiful among all partners, they have the

strength of both males and

females.

Lovers nowadays, whether gay, lesbian, or male

and female couples, are

indestructible because they are the pairs

before.

They are really meant to be.

This myth also explains why it is natural for

people to just realize

the value of the people they love only when they

are about to be gone or

are already gone. Because this happened even

before, and we become

weaker without our pair. We realize that we need

them, truly love them, and

that together, we are stronger.

This is also why we kiss. We always try to find

the lips wherein ours

will fit well.

This is also why we like to hold hands with the

one we love, to find

out if the spaces between their fingers are the

spaces where ours used to

lay.

And finally, this is why we always find someone

to love. We always want

to complete ourselves... Because we need the

strength of the one we

love in order to go on with the hardships of

life... we need to fill in a

missing space... and most of all, because we

used

to have two hearts.

We need to find the other one."

This was a shared mail so I've quoted the story, myth of love, above because it wasn't mine. It's so beautiful not to share so here it is. :)

Well done ! Oprah.com has an article touching on one woman's experience moving from a marriage to a man for many years onto a domestic partner relationship with a woman for over 5 years . It is her spin on it worth reading !

I love this beautiful story behind the "three" sexes. How cool is this. I can so relate to what is in this hub. Well, how many people ever find that other half? I feel lucky with Cassy in my life. Fehl, you never cease to amaze me. I am annoyed that I have only just found this hub now. Gaaah. Sorry for the late finding of this.

Isn't it wonderful how ancient mythology has somehow come through with such an interesting story like this? It's nice to see something from antiquity resonate so well in the present. I love reading your hubs, especially over breakfast and coffee. It sets me up for my day. :) Take care, Fehl. XO

I had the same feeling when I fist read it LOL Loved the myth and all. Just beautiful! My other half is from somewhere else, faraway from me. But I don't feel incomplete. If I could kiss her right now, I would. You're lucky, you can kiss your Cassy anytime. Well at least you found this. Never too late :)

I love vintage and ancient and mythology stories. Damn I like a lot of things LOL Yup, this is so interesting. I wonder who made this.. Wooohh breakfast and coffee, I'm smiling here now. I'm honored to be your book in the morning ;) TC XO

(smiling like crazy here now)

Your breakfast comment makes me laugh, Fehl. We take turns sometimes to make brekky. But I sheepishly admit that Cassy is the better cook by far. She'd make a great wife! LOL!!!!! There, I said it. Ooooh.

Oh dear, I am so moved by you saying that about your other half. My heart goes out to you, Fehl. I hope you get to give those kisses for real. Are you able to spend time together? Sorry for the questions, I can't help asking. If that was me there, I'd be on the phone and Skype-ing and emailing and testing every day without fail. I'd have shares in the darn phone company by now. That must be so tough on you. (Giving you a hug for good measure.)

It saddens me to think that it might make you feel bad hankering for your other half over such a distance. I hope and pray you both get together and link up. Distance is tough. It makes me feel lucky for Cassy and I, and how it turned out for us, except now I feel guilty thinking of you there.

I love the vintage and antiquity and anything to do with it, even poetry. I just love history.

Yes, you are our book for quite a few of these recent mornings, Fehl. Thanks for this. I am still re-reading your amazing book. What a triumph for you, my poetic friend. Take care. XO

This is sick! How can you believe to this kind fiction, there is no facts, no evidence that proves it! people gather your minds!

This passage is abosoulutely senseless if you think about it. Before Zuess split the people into two, was these people reproducting? If so how, they had to be attacted to the same sex. In Today's world we're reproducting by meale and female. So if any case why would the "Myth God" has us sexing with opposites sexes if some dont find that opposing? THat'll make me queston what is the point.


attainment3649 4 years ago

Wow that this something new to me. I had no idea that people used to have two organs. And that the attraction from both sex is because of the they we were once a whole but was split. so much that hhistory doesnt teach us.
