I don't think this has anything to do with moral values. I once saw a film, based on a true story, about a gay person who finally ended up committing suicide only because his family did not accept him the way he was. The sad part is that no one understands that for them it's like ...'being born in a wrong package' which means it's a man en-caged in a woman's body or vice versa.
Apparently there has been a gay scene for quite a while, it is just kept out of view. There was even a program in the UK where they got an openly gay Indian prince and sent him to Brighton for a month or two (Brighton is argubly the gay capital of the UK) to try and find love. He was openly gay and whilst he had complaints because of the conservative nature of the country, he had never been in legal problems (as far as was mentioned).
Well I think from memory they both took a partner back to their respective countries but in the end the Indian Prince was unable to continue as he felt it would cause problems/issues as there is a lot of homophobia in his local region.
Understand this, homosexuals are not out to suck your appendages if you are straight, though, a six pack of beer has turned many straight guys into a blowjob or two. Why go this avenue against gay folks, have you not something better to do like spice up your straight relationships...........
A choice, come on. Who would rightly choose to be gay and judged by a preponderance of society that way? If you're in transition, why are you so bored by human rights issues? As for coming back next month, please be respectful of this community.
Every person has inside who they want to love, what makes them feel good about themselves and how they will go to obtain that relationship. I know many people who have never had relationships with the opposite sex and do not regret, because for them, it was what they wanted. Having a loving relationship is between two people that satisfy each others needs, nothing outside that need will satisfy on the sexual level.
I know I am being very open here in this forum, but I have grown very tired of gay being an issue in a world where we all fight for equality and rights. A comedian once said, and I believe so true on the light side, if you do not agree with gay marriage or gay life, then do not marry a gay.......
I'm with you, HCB. I'm tired of all the gay intolerance as well. Controversial, I know, but I really do believe sexuality runs along a continuum, it just depends where you fall. Two of my best friends are gay, one had never been in a lesbian relationship before. But, she fell in love with the person, her partner, who just happens to be another woman. I'm horrified we're still so in the dark ages with this issue. I was celebrating like a maniac when it was temporarily legal for gay marriage here in Portland. So sad it was so brief. Anyhoo, that's my 2 cents.
I have mixed feelings on the issue. I think freedom of expression or behavior whether you are a gay or straight is a fundamental right. At the same time I also think this law is ruining the society and family values. I did make a post on that topic at my today.com Blog also. http://anamika.today.com/2009/07/03/hom … -in-india/
I know where you're coming from, but baaaad analogy.
You can choose to change your hair colour. You can choose to wear non-prescription contacts. You could even choose to kiss a girl, and even like it.
I'm not anti-gay... and no buts about that.
What I won't do though is say that either 1) People were born that way, or 2) It's a choice.
I'm sure plenty have felt that they were born gay. And I'm sure plenty have decided to be gay. Can one be born bisexual? Maybe. But I'm positive that there are bisexuals who chose to be simply because it doubles their chances of 'getting laid'.
Seems unlikely that someone who is really straight (or gay) could make themselves be bisexual.
I mean, if you are genuinely attracted to both genders, I can see how you could ignore or suppress your attraction for one of the genders, but how do you fabricate an attraction that isn't really there?
Sexual attraction isn't the only thing that can cause an erection.
Fear can too. Excitement. Jumping off a high point into water. Without nary a sexual thought a guy can wake up with the 'morning glory'. It can respond to physical and/or mental stimulation. Or sometimes not.
It really does have a mind of its own.
According to Law & Order SVU male rape victims can have an erection.
Getting a Hubber Score of 100 apparently works better than Viagra.
Dude you need to get your facts straight....Those fundamentalists keep bashing gays for there supposed "choices" ... Most of the gays don't really have a choice... They are born with that inclination or attraction.... And being Bisexual has been more acceptable for woman..... In my high school we guys used to watch porno during summer... most of the guys never had any problems woman/woman or one man/two woman scenes but whenever anything man/man most of the guys would find it disgusting..... You gotta read more.. there are studies which conclude that there is some amount of Bi tendencies even among some men..... but at conscious level men are more likely to suppress it.
@Darkside My bad... my apologies.... most of these fundamentalists bash gays.... when being gay mostly isn't a choice.... I get it.... you're "choice" interpretation is far too advanced for thick head fundamentalists.... Peace out dude.
Which brings us to the question of: who cares if it's a choice? People make choices all the time. Should we eliminate people's right to religious freedom because it involves a choice of what religion to follow or whether to follow one at all?
I know being openly gay, coming out the closet, gay rights etc., seems to be one of the latest fads in today's society. But don't you think at times society as a whole (in particular Hollywood and the music industry since celebrities have the most influence on society) comes to the resuce to pamper...
Do you think KINDLE is a little early exploiting gay marriage in their advertizements?I live in Ohio where gay marriage is not yet legal. Yet I'm seeing ads on T.V. of a man refering to another man as his husband. I'm not against gay marriage, but exploitation before it's even legal, I am. ...
I have heard several Evangelical leaders say they are willing to overlook Trump's immoral behavior including cursing, adultery, and lying, because his policies and toughness are more important to them than his behavior.But yet, if I were to exhibit the same behavior to them, I would be chastised...
