    no, i just intesely dislike intolerance.

    oh, and if you havent got a valid point to make, dont make one - what relevance does it have if im gay or not?
    well said, I'd rep ya for that if I had any left to give. Give it time though, I'm sure you'll make posts in future that match the sensible nature of this one. Good stuff mate.

    Two of my closest friends are gay by the way. I'd just like to know what is wrong with that, if anything at all. Ok, so I get a bit giddy when the pair of them are together and begin talking about past partners they've had, or what they would do to each other if they hooked up. However, isn't this covered by basic freedoms somehow? The right to do as you choose, so long as you aren't harming anyone else in the process... (unless they like that kind of thing I guess hehe)

    think of homosexuality not as a condition but like as a tool or some ****. why would people's sexuality switch from time to time? why does homosexuality appear less frequent the further from the ego one goes?
    maybe it has to do with health. people often blame homosexual fantasies on stress, they weren't "thinking clearly". people's sexuality is focused mainly on their self. when people are more "real", or less distracted, less stressed, less emotional, they're more "straight". when they're more emotional, they immune system and **** is less stable, not as strong, so homosexuality probably serves to protect from like bad breeding or something.

    i'm not saying gay people arent healthy, but ****, u have to at least consider it. just because it's not "natural", don't make it wrong, so its not like i'm saying i hate gays, but they're different, at least, from "normal"

    also homosexuality appears more often in overpopulated areas, along with more violence. nature does have a way...

    <checks himself> nope pretty healthy, hm...also I'm in norfolk, not really the hotspot for crime.

    I would say the reason I am homosexual is because I like men, I don't think it's due to me having stress, I have the same amount of highs and lows as most teenagers throughout there life really. If you want my personal opinion I think homosexuality occurs through socialisation, all based on the culture. Or it could be there is no reason for homosexuality, it is all just random. I just find it funny the most asked question I get is 'how did you tell people you were gay', is it really such a thing I have to label myself gay for people to identify me? I have yet to see a culture that is purely based on 'straight' and 'gay' (well ok you could argue nazis but they were also killing everyone else not like them).

    If you really think about it the best think for everyone would be for everyone in the world to be bisexual, I mean it was popular in roman times. <shrugs> anyhow making dinner while posting this so sorry if this reply seems sorta distant.

    was that really the best you could do? I'm sorta dissapointed, it's funny that there are gay people scared of ridicule of this. Yet when you hear it, it's just sorta sad.

    Ive finally realised the answer to so many peoples questions about the legitimacy of homosexuality.
    The answers is as follows from a philasophical-science point of view.

    " If homosexuality was meant to be a human form of sexuality then how is it explained that homosexuals cannot reproduce their own offspring. The human body is designed for coupling of male and female, and therefore this illegitamises homosexuality."

    Discuss.
    Troll. You really have no idea, do you? You can't condemn something, which someone else does when it is having no direct effect on anyone bar themselves. You have no grounds, on which to form an objection but your own excruciatingly narrow mind. As for your 'philasophical-science' [sic] point of view, I suggest you lookup the arts of science and philosophy because what you said is supported by neither.

    I personally believe that sexuality is not a binary state, i.e. no one is fully heterosexual or homosexual, everyone lies in an infinitely dense spectrum between the two extremes. So some people are attracted almost exclusively to the same sex (what we generally call homosexuality) and some are attracted almost exclusively to the opposite sex (what we generally call heterosexuality). But by far the most common (IMO) are those who lie somewhere in between (e.g. bisexuality of some degree), however the majority of these people come across as heterosexual because the attitudes and intolerances of society force them perhaps even subconsciously to restrict themselves to only exploring one side of their 'sexual spectrum'. I suggest full exploration of both sides of your own (what have you got to lose; except for perhaps intolerance?); only then can you decide what you truly want from a partner and relationship.

    I was referring more to people who consider themselves exclusively heterosexual. It's unlikely someone who considers themself exclusively homosexual is anything but, as it's unlikely they would want to expose themselves to the intolerances of society if they weren't.

    hm...I'm just pretty lucky on that perspective on the fact that I've just stopped caring. I told my friends and just people in general and they didn't mind. Most people don't have a problem with it here, the only people who had problems with are people I never talk to or have much in common with so wasn't really a problem.

    Lets face it people, if one is horny one shall have sex with anything.

    Look at prisons for example, all this big tough straight guys usually end up having sex with men in the prison at some stage.

    Because that's life....!

    To make a more controversial point...

    If God loves us dearly why would he create people homosexual? This is where I believe the biblical point of view crumbles. Some people are just born gay and thats it! No matter how BLOODY STRAIGHT your parents are one could end up gay! IT'S ALL IN THE GENES-THINK!

    Homosexuality most probably is hereditary.
    Look i'm sorry, but if homosexuality was inherited then how on earth would you inherit it because a gay person's father would clearly have to have had a heterosexual relationship. Can we not see the logic here????! I'm not claiming to know what causes it but i'm erring more towards the "nurture" rather than "nature" aspect of the whole thing, purely because it makes more sense.

    a lot of christian fundamentalist are using the gay gene as an argument, saying that they can cure it to help stop the spread. It also helps them fit it into a stereotype of a disease. Just random point there.

    mental health is also a big clue. and while society may suggest personality may be anything, one knows that if a man believes he is a woman his whole life, this is unhealthy. consequently, if a woman believes she is a man, it is unhealthy. why? because it is not true. sexuality, however, goes much deeper, and when one entertains his sexual preferences, it is hard to believe it is unhealthy because it simply is. heterosexuality is NATURAL because procreation is the basis behind it, however pleasure is also important.

    to suggest your sexual preference as a homosexual is "normal" would be to say people who are attracted to little kids are normal, because it's just what gets them off. however, not being "normal" isn't necessarily bad, and in the case of me, i don't judge anyone, i just simply agree it is choice to pursue.

    people who lose their ego often meet their true self face to face. however, their ego also plays a role in affecting the true self, which is really the basis to its existence. sexuality is an expression of the ego, and yes this has been proven scientifically. you cannot masturbate with fantasy. ultimately it is your choice what you pursue in your fantasy, however, your ego/personality, perception on life, etc. affects what gets you aroused.

    neither is better, nor worse, but when someone has a healthy perception of truth (ie a man who believes he is a woman will remain restless and pursue transvestism) they act more "naturally", because the personality reflects beliefs, emotions, etc. (ego)

    this is also why people who develop amnesia come out with much different personalities, and often times different sexual preferences. people who build up lots of self-worth, love, attention, or need of, etc. can often times be homosexual (see the story of narcissus)

    people content in their self are more "healthy", personality wise, or truthful, and their sexuality usually reflects this

    again, neither is better nor worse, simply choice, whether conscious or not. dont let religion lie or judge you, things go deeper than they appear

    why, then do we observe homosexuality in members of the animal kingdom? i suggest to you that the purpose of sex is not only procreation, as you suggest, but also pleasure, and some derise more pleasure from same-sex couplings than opposite-sex ones.

    also, your use of the word 'meant' implies the overseeing of ceration by some kind of God, and that (s)he / it intends there to be a natural order of things. now, we can observe homosexuality in all walks of life, an in both sexes, and yet you seem to assume this is questionable, whereas a God that cannot even be defined or comperhended (if one were to believe such a force could feisably exist), you take as Gospel (no pun intended)...

    Discuss back.
    maybe homosexuality is to keep the population down
