    If you're gay you get your sexuality demonized by right-wing morons, and if you're a straight man you get your sexuality demonized by feminists and left-wing morons, and sometimes (usually religious) right-wing morons too.

    I just think it sucks. No one should ever have to feel guilty about their sexual persuasion.

    I do think there needs to be some more respect among the left for heterosexual male sexuality. When you read feminist stuff or articles in The Guardian or The Independent male sexuality seems to be tarred as something dark, twisted, and malicious. Most of the time though, just like all sexuality, male sexuality is just a desire to have some hot sex. There's nothing wrong with watching porn or looking at sexy photos. We're just enjoying ourselves, and it kinda sucks that we're pressured to feel guilty for it.

    You never hear an end to how strip clubs or porn 'objectify' women, but you never hear anyone on the left complaining about gay strip clubs or gay porn. It's like sexuality is only a bad thing if you're male and straight.

    Key word is morons.

    If you honestly think heterosexual people are made to feel guilty about being straight you're completely insane. You're complaining about this as though it's an actual issue while gay people are being literally murdered across the world for who they love. No one has ever been murdered for being straight. Get some ****ing perspective, jesus. "Buh buh buh some Tumblr user called me cis scum, I'm being systematically oppressed, someone help me!" Get a grip.

    No such thing as heterosexual male sexuality. Sexuality alone would suffice to define the universally accepted orientation it is. In many countries and in many people's minds this sexuality is the only type that exists and everything else is a perversion of sexuality itself. It's in this context I dislike heterosexuality being given personality. Feminism is more demonized than patriarchal men are and that's a sad fact.

    Lets say someone is bisexual, but they cant tell their family because then their family will know that they have sexual thoughts. bit awkward really isnt it? i mean i know everyone gets sexual thoughts, but for them to be towards the same gender is a little 'odd' and regarded as 'filthy' apparently.
    P.S. im not trying to offend anyone, i have a friend who is in this trouble because she has to lie about her sexuality.

    What sexuality is paedophilia? It's hardly of one which makes you attracted to a man's/woman's body so is that a sexuality?
