    Tell me about it. No matter what my opinions/beliefs on a subject, it really gets to me when people **** off those who are different to them. Be it religiously, politically, or sexual preference-ly. :rolleyes:
    If they really do feel that way about it, then they know it's not helping to voice that opinion, keep it to themselves.

    I see the apeal of being a lesbian. I mean there are some very attractive women out there, I admit that I have fancied girls in the past and it would mean you would have to deal with men when they are being twits. But I have my boyfriend and I love him even when he is being a twit
    You probably should not tell your boyfriend this. He might get ideas involving threesomes or such. Girl on girl action is number one fantasy for guys. *L*

    I am going to kill this server very very soon. How busy can you possibly be?

    Trust me my Boyfriend knows that I have liked girls in the past and in very very keen on the idea of a threesom. I am not completely against the idea to be honest but I don't think I would ever have the guts to go through with it.
    I know what you mean about the server it is so annoying.

    Aye on the server thing. Takes me 3 or 4 straight minutes of refreshing to get it to work sometimes, and it's even worse when you're trying to post something, for fear of posting it a dozen times by accident! Someone go to bed!

    I guess that's why the ideal sexuality would be bisexual then?

    Don't mean to be controversial....I'm just bored.

    Personally I think gay boys are cool.

    Lesbians....hmmm, not too sure
    Both should be accepted with full rights. period

    To discuss who is "more accepted" based on gender is discriminative.

    You could perhaps twist the meaning of the original post to mean "Which is more accepted , by todays society" but then it depends so much on the local environment and the definition of being accepted that the answer is virtually meaningless.

    I completely agree. In an ideal world, there would be no discussion about whether homosexuality is acceptable, or which gender of homosexuality is more "appealing".
    It's not a case of being PC all the time, either - but more a case of this should NOT be an issue in today's society, we should not be concerned about what happens behind other people's doors - there are FAR WORSE THINGS that happen in society today, I think someone's got the microscope out without looking at the bigger picture.

    Do you have a saying in england going "Filtering flies and swallowing cammels" ?

    This is a perfect example of that. In my opinion the original question is more unacceptable than homosexuality itself.

    Yeh but I get the feeling that lesbians do have a better deal than gays. Besides I've known plenty of guys disliking gays yet loving lesbian porn. Idiots really. Something I read that lesbians can join the army but gays can't? I believe this has been declared incompatible, whether or not it will be changed is a different matter.

    I have never heard that saying, no.
    But yes, I agree. (Just to clarify, I do not find homosexuality to be unacceptable at all.)

    I think you are right. Lesbians do not get as much slander as gays. On the army - I thought they were just not allowed to ask (or is that just in America?).

    It's not completely unheard of.
    In relatively modern history possibly, but not through the past millenia when our cognitive brain has been evolving.

    I never actually asked, what consequences of disgust would make the trait a successful one? The only consequences I can imagine are equally indirect and hard to verify, e.g. disgust by males makes homosexuals feel bad and kill themselves thus benefitting the disgust trait.
    Obviously nurture would have to be partly responsibly for homosexuality for the trait to be successful; whereby the trait would prevent them becoming homosexual.

    Despite what 'traditionalists' may think about such issues, being a heterosexual myself i cannot see how anyone can logically argue against homosexuality. First of all, it cannot be disputed that all humans are intrinsically different but despite this should be considered equal whether that difference be their sex, race, colour or sexual orientation. Being gay or lesbian should not be seen as a taboo any more than being black or asian should be.

    Secondly, I believe that anyone who is a free-thinking adult should be allowed by law to practice whatever they please in the privacy of their own home. It does not matter whether that is practicing homosexuality or smoking cannabis, the person should be given the right to choose and not be told by society what they can and cannot do.

    It goes without saying that as soon as anyone else may be harmed by such actions then it should not be within the law. As a result of this belief, it is common sense to also believe that smoking should be banned in public (the reason why go without saying). In your own home, it is a different matter - no-one except yourself is harmed - and a large chunk of the money you pay for your cigarettes goes to the government meaning you will be entitled to health care the NHS provides (which you will inevitably need) just like anyone else.

    It seems like gay men are much more visible and accepted in the media: look at all the shows like Will and Grace and Queer Eye For the Straight Guy, which basically set up 'the gay lifestyle' as being hip or stylish or whatnot. But none of these characters ever get any. They're all comepletely sexless, which I guess makes it easier for it to go down.

    I think lesbians have it easier as far as day-to-day life goes, though, as long as they're not butch.
