Iran has executed just a mite more than two teenagers for being homosexual - most organisations put the figyure at around 4000 people since the revolution in the 1970s.
Western Europe and Costal North America are generally tolerant in attitudes and institutions although there is still a lot of homophobia on a personal level and in certain sections of society. As far as gay "rights" are concerned - the battles' pretty much won at least in the UK but that doesn't mean gay people should be complacent.
As for this scale *******s - give me a ****ing break. I'm all for accepting that people can be bisexual, but it's really ****ing offensive to be told by a bunch of pansy emo teenagers that we're all on a "scale of sexuality" and none of us are exclusively gay or straight. Quite apart from the fact that it denies the overwhelming majority of anecdotal evidence (ask any man or woman in the street, I guarantee that minimum 80% will tell you that they are straight or gay, exclusively), Kinsey's study was hopelessly flawed - a tiny sample, and get this; self-selected
. Something of a joke, actually. I'm gay, exclusively, I'm not 90% gay and 10% straight. Because I get that Angelina Jolie is hot that doesn't mean I want to **** her - I **** guys - and no one should try to take away my right to categorise myself as gay.

To me it seems strange that you could fancy someone of the same sex and yet still want children, because the act of making the baby isn't something you would ever want to partake in!
Making a baby and bringing one up are entirely different things. Pretty much anyone is biologically capable of making one, I'm skeptical about the ability of just about half the people I meet to bring one up.
