Why do non-LGBT people think they are the authority on the lives of the LGBT?
I've noticed a lot - here and IRL - that those who are not LGBT often feel that they are the expert on LGBT type information - particularly when it comes to the conversation of choice in the area of sexual orientation. Despite information to the contrary of what they are stating, it is often insisted that they are in the right. Why do you think this is?
I don't know, but I wouldn't take it to personally. People who have the nerve to hold forth on that subject when they've never lived and breathed it likely believe they are experts on everything, not just the LGBT community.
It is comparable to me, as a woman, blabbering about what it means to be a man: utterly ridiculous.
Good question. The only time I give my opinion about the lifestyles are when someone asks me. Since you didn't ask that specific question, I'll keep my opinion to myself. No one should be insisting laws be created against any of it. Straight people don't want anyone telling them how to live so they should keep their noses out of the other people's lives. Heck, a lot of the ones doing the yelling and screaming can't even live their own lives by their moral code. They need to fix themselves.
I would argue that religion and bigotry are to blame. Bigotry is the source of their intolerance (for anything new and unfamiliar) and religion is their justification. It's a false 'moral high ground' that can be used to deny people one thing or another. Since religion is handled with kid gloves in a lot of modern countries, these bigoted viewpoints are sheltered from true scrutiny.

Why do most people, whilst they acknowledge God's existence fail to live for him?The devil has done everything he can to make people think that he doesn’t exist and yet most people live for him. Most people, though they believe in God don’t live for him. Why is that?

Why are people so concerned about their heritage/ancestry?I am not asking this question to be mean. I am just curious. Personally, I know that my ancestors came from Germany. I am satisfied with knowing that. I don't need to know specifics of 100 or 200 years ago. That part of my ancestry doesn't...

Why do so many people think it's better to be in a bad relationship than to be alone?I enjoy my own company and I have so many crafts and hobbys that I love. Being alone is not a bad thing to me. I have three children and as we prepare to send the last one off to college my mind races with all the...
