Looking forward to it. :)
Ross (1990) Homosexuality and family relations p.40-41 reports on Humphreys (1970) who conducts interviews on 50 men occupied in gay activities at a "public convenience" and finds 54% report being married happily to women, link. This number percent is basically exactly the same as the percent of men 18 and older who are married in the US general population, link.
Are you serious?
What more do you want? Gay men marry at the same rate as non-gay men. And, if you take the time to look over Ross's work you will find that except for the burden of secrecy, homosexuals are in the main quite happy with being family men.

The thought of having a sexually physical relationship with someone of the same sex as me is something I find distasteful.
me too.

but thats my problem not theirs.

they are born that way.

I have enough problems - so many (due to my nature - born introvert, iconoclast, loner - at least i'm a guy that like girls (the ones with hips/butt) - glad to be normal in orientation.

why the interest? I couldn't care less about anyone being gay (other than creeping me out - i think i work with one (great guy - i like him alot - but distance myself from him because of my hangups over it).

live and live life. if you are an honest hetero (not at war with your gayness) - then you should not fixate on gayness in any way.

instead just ignore it like i do.

The whiny, high-pitched voices, the cattiness, the waxed eyebrows, the fake tans, the general shallow annoyingness that a large number of them carry on with? Why the talk of 'gay culture'? FFS.
It's just the way gays are perceived ..but they are nothing like that in reality. Reality for gays is as much the same as it is for any other human being experiencing a close loving relationship with one another.
Really? It's all just a figment of the imagination? If they aren't like that then why aren't they protesting about the way they are portrayed, or portray themselves? It is, after all, one of the strongest lobby groups in the world.
lol.

"strongest lobby groups in the world".


try going toe to toe with AIPAC and AARP (top 2 most powerfull Special Interests in American government), then get back with about the power of the "Gay lobby" lol.

It is powerful. Powerful enough to bring down newspapers. There are a lot of wealthy gay people who buy a lot of stuff. I didn't say it's the only strong lobby group. Lobby groups operate a bit like unions--the threat to withold services/purchases is a powerful motivator.

Well I wasn't advocating the live and let live principle to that extent, Dontaskme, I think I too would have to draw the line there.
Okay good, because there are boundaries that humans should not ever consider crossing else we descend into absolute chaos as an evolving species...

no need to worry via "evolving speicies" closest animal to man does not have same num of chromosomes (48 - instead of 46) - so men/woman can partake with all sorts of beasts and will not evolve into something else.

so its ok.

but then what is it exactly that you find distasteful about another persons preference that makes you want to judge it negatively, I don't quite get that?
it instinctual revulsion. such unions does not promote the continued existance of the human race.

it is counter natural selection/survival of the species. and instinctual "hit to the gut" when noticed by a hetero (or me at least).

It might be a 'choice' sometimes. But so what? I don't see how that affects anything except apparently to religious nuts. But they don't think anyway.
I think the choice argument is utter bullshit and also important as well.

25 yrs ago He and I should have just chose to "hook up" and become lovers - would have avoided my many decaded of celibacy and his awful marraige to the black widow.

but real word ain't like that. I/he did not chose to be straight, I know from knowing myself, I afford the same to those that proclaim to be gay.

if they say they were born that way, i agree - as i was born the other way.

For sure. The battle against gays is a campaign for the hearts and minds of swinging voters, ie. bisexuals.

While many more people would admit innate bisexuality if not for the stigma ("mission accomplished for conservatives) there are plenty who are very much unmistakably straight or bi. The shenanigans of frustrated prisoners and boarding school students are often held up as an example of the fluidity of sexuality. What is noted less often said is that most inmates have, and want, no sex while in prison. The ones in prison having sex are gays, bisexuals and victims (some of whom later respond with rape and violence on release into the community as a result of the trauma - so much for rehabilitation in "criminal factories").

Stigmatising love between consenting adults is irrational, based on the attitudes of less enlightened forebears. Societies don't break down due to homosexuality; they break down due to hubris, ergo internal hatreds, resistance to growth and a lack of focus on what is most important, treating the trivial as though critical and the critical as unimportant. Examples: the US and to a lesser extent, the rest of the Anglosphere (largely due to US influence), the Middle East, North Korea, most of Africa and SE Asia, and a fair bit of South and Central America.

The people in many of these places need to pull their heads out of their bums (instead of worrying about what happens to other people's bums) and face reality, giving away their childish superstitions and fantasies like a child must come of age and give up Santa and Teddy. Societies that fail to gain a mature focus quickly enough will simply fail to compete this century.

I never thought the US would be vulnerable, and the disintegration of their unity has been a shock. They desperately need to give up their bombing and invading habits, and the regressive religious nonsense and anti-science oddities. Being hung up on trivial distractions such as gays being gay with each other (gosh!), transgenders going to the toilet (they should hold on!), blind science denial and religious superstition (God dunnit!) will harm the US's chances of competing an increasingly cutthroat global environment.

Personally I don't think anyone 'chooses' anything, but that's another matter....
