Srsly, stop flaming.


As for me, I think that what happens between two contenting adults is none of my business.

I am still amazed that it's even an issue today, honestly.

I mean, how absurd would we think a person is for saying "So what do you think about those black people?" or "Why are you in approval of allowing those women to vote?"

I mean...those once-taboo subjects are not even in the back of our minds anymore - hopefully.

That's how it should be with homosexuality. Why in the world should we care who people love or what they do with their clothes off, lol? It's life. It doesn't affect you. Get over it.

I'm a straight man, but I could care less if someone is gay, straight, bisexual, transgendered, or whatever. They're people, not gays. People.

Did you completely misunderstand my sentiments or were you being sarcastic? My point was that even making homosexuality an issue is as absurd as racism.

Your logic is completely pathetic, though, no offense, iFish. Your reasoning for why homosexuality is against religion? They're gay.

What?

That's not a reason, that's the very part that MAKES them homosexual.

Besides, who cares if they can't reproduce? Does that harm you or me? No. Does that hurt ANYONE else? No.

Why's it wrong, then?

Were you suggesting that the only reason you don't make fun of other races was because they would beat you up? I hope not. If so...wow.

So iFish, first try to be respectful in what you write. You don't have to agree with it, but use proper words, I am assuming that if the site has to sensor it out "***" that is was not appropriate.

As to why people many disagree with homosexuality, it is mostly because of religion and what the bible says.

I also think it depends on where you are from and how you were raised as to whether you accept it or not. I am from CA, which makes me probably more liberal than a lot of people, but also some of my friends from CA may disagree with it. It depends a lot on your background. Personally, I have some friends who are homosexual. They do not choose to be that way. If anyone knew how hard of a life it was to choose that path, no one would.

Yeah...I was raised Christian, so I understand the reasons that people can use to spread that kind of prejudice. I'm no longer Christian, and that kind of belief is one of the reasons for it. It still amazes me, though, that they actually buy into it and can use it for justification.

I agree. I have friends that are homosexual and bisexual, and they would never choose that. It's too hurtful with the reactions of family and society for them to simply choose to do it.

Okay, here is my first hand account. As a lesbian myself, I, of course agree with it. I have never been religious, but always spiritual. Many Christians have a problem with homosexuality because it is written in the Bible, but it only speaks of men. I know this because my girlfriend is Southern Baptist and struggled with it for a while until she found nothing on women being with women. Now, I can defend lesbianism from several different views ranging from how it is exists in many cultures to its time era and even its social tolerance in America.

Though I am a homosexual, I will admit, my girlfriend and I have social issues with gay men. Of course I have gay guy friends, but when it comes to their relationship I hold it to a lower standard because of how frequent we are in gay culture. I think relationships rely on a number of thing, and one is love. I believe that men and women love in separate ways. Call me close minded, but I just cannot believe that men can really love that much at all, as a whole. This is all going on my personal experiences and what I observe around me. It is rare to see a man not cheat, and truly love and devote himself. It isn't in their nature. Thus two men engaging in a relationship I set on the bottom shelf.

Boy, these topics ae starting to become very religious. We're not staying on topic anymore. Anyway, I don't think we should be talking about our religious facts that much.
