Honestly, in modern society this shouldn't even be an issue. What happened to separation of church and state?


its not a matter of church and state, its a matter of common sense. i mean, if girls were meant to reproduce with each other, wed be BORN to. but we aren't. same with guys. :angry: ^_^

Well, they weren't made to reproduce, but they were made to be attracted to each other. We've been through the evidence for this already, so I'm not going to repost the information.

Honestly, there is none which has always angered me. People claim that the Constitution doesn't come out and say there will be a separation but if you look and do some research it is clearly what they meant.

Well, actually, to clarify: the separation was intended to keep the government out of the church. The Founders didn't want another one of Cromwell's Model Republics or France's Cult of the Supreme Being. (Even though the second happened after the fact, it's a valid example.) Now, of course, it's equally applicable the other way. That's the one thing I think both the Lutheran and Roman Catholic churches do a fair job on, while the "Bible Belt" Baptists don't. For the most part, R.Cs (and in my experience, the ELCA) don't try to legislate faith-specific beliefs. Obviously, they advocate a lot of other legislature aimed at helping others, that a lot of non-religious folk get behind to. Which is all good.

Using religious voter's blocs to get rid of rights, however, definetely crosses the line.

Common sense? No such thing. What seems obvious to you is obviously not obvious to them, and you have no grounds to say that you're right and they're wrong. It's all relative, as Einstein would say. :D

First I want to say that I completly agree with Hanyou Kitty, I HATE it when people say This is so *** or that is so ***. I never say anything about it but it makes me so mad :angry: I mean how can a subject or t.v program or an item of clothing be *** (as in homo***ual) because I know they don't mean *** as in jolly or colourfull.

I think it is fine if a person is ***. There has always been people who are *** and always will be, and I think that by now we (humans) should accept them as part of our society.

I think the problem is that as we are growing up we usually don't come in contact with a person who is g.a.y and we hardly know anything about them and therefore we become a bit frightend of them, and in humans fright turns to hatred.

It's a bit stupid that in school we are taught not to discriminate against people because of their nationality, religion or gender, but we are not taught anything about people who are homosxual.

Because I don't know anybody who is *** or bi, I do find it a bit strange but I would never discriminate against a person because of their sxual oriantation.

This is my thoughts in a nutshell: I believe you are allowed to love anyone, gender, and pedaphilia aside. Even if these people are indeed "choosing" to be ***, which I absolutely do not think is the case, than what harm are they doing to you? They are just another normal couple. Sorry if they not follow your beliefs, but some of us believe this whole world isn't just run by one man's disicion or a book. And if these people do not have a choice of who they love, which I believe is the case, than shouldn't we accomidate thses people like we do with any other?

Sure, that's fine by me. So long as, you know, none of them ever stalks me. I would be SERIOUSLY creeped out by that and I would call the police and sue that person.

If both people are homo, then so be it. Go be a couple.

I'm going to quote a friend from school for this.

"I mean, I have nothing against, Homo***uals, but I just don't like it when they sit there in the mall making out and stuff like that."

Seriously, I agree, and not just with Homo***uals but with anybody. Everyone can be who they want..... It's themselves who else can they be? Hurkk, also I am upset that they made Gay marriage illegal. People need to have their rights! I'm not one but really..... It's not right to take away their freedom.

Seconded.

ISN'T AMERICA A FREE COUNTRY, SO WHY CAN'T GAYS GET MARRIED?

I have nothing against gay/bi people, but I don't like it when they sit in stores and stuff making out.

I agree with you about Gay Marriage. Should be legal.

And I thought you might find this funny, I know several gay people who feel the same way about straight people making out in public.

Actually, I'm not much for PDA (public displays of affection), so straight or gay, I don't understand how someone could make out in a store. But who knows, maybe I shouldn't knock it until I've tried it :D

Making out in public is sick. Whether gay or not.

To homos: You have a house, man, make use of it.

I've nothing aginst them, but since I'm straight, I quickly look away when I see homos hugging and kissing in public.

I reving this thread

While on tumblr I found this seriously cool blog/website called "Everyone is Gay" the blog is written by a lesbian couple who answer advice, for other lesbians but also for guys who like girls. Both of them are really brillant and funny, I totally suggest looking at it.

The name of the website comes from this thoery that everyone is acutally gay. I mean girls prefer to spend time with other girls right? The same goes for boys and men. Of course the whole making babies thing is simply a survival instict tomake sure we don't die out ( also babies are cute to us so wqe feel like we have to protect them). I sorta believe this thoery, like I've talked about before i feel more like a male then female soemtimes, but I aslo happen to like guys, which makes me a gay man, so to speak.

your thoughts?

I believe everyone is a little bit gay as well. I'm extremely comfortable in my sexuality, I know I like girls and that's enough for me. I'm comfortable enough to openly judge other men on the basis of looks (my girlfriend and I discussed the hotness of Christian Bale the other day). The thing is, guys want to hang out with good-looking guys, only instead of being attracted to them, they just think they look cool. Girls do the same thing.

And I edited the title from "Homo***uality" to "Homosexuality." I'm sure we're all mature enough to handle the word "sex" in a discussion about sexuality.

evryone has to be a little gay otherwise all our friends would be the opiste gender and that would be scary. also we sort of need gay couples so that they can adopt nwanted childern.
