    Because sex is personal and private. Because love is not something that can be controlled. Because gender is a hell of a lot more complicated than just a binary. Because women are beautiful and so are men. Because who someone chooses to be with affects only the people in the relationship. Because there are people out there who think two girls is hot and should be encouraged but two guys is just wrong... and don't realise how hypocritical that is. Because I'm a woman who married a man but have fallen in love with men, women and others in the past. Because there's not a damn thing wrong with mutual, consensual relationships.

    Is that enough reasons for you?

    This makes absolutely no sense and I have no idea how you've managed to link a word that everyone uses to a conspiracy involving the liberal media.

    If you haven't already, I recommend reading about the origin of the word here.
    When you re-read my post with an open-mind and then see why "everyone" started using it, then you will see the Triple Lock (the sense, the link and the conspiracy).

    Did you just invent this term? It's already in use unfortunately.

    If I open my mind to every crackpot conspiracy then there will be no room in my brain for facts, so I choose not to.

    If you are not aware virtually every single news media establishment has an agenda it supports and propagates, then you are wasting space in your brain not taking in the right information and you are obviously naive.

    Start learning and understanding your society, here is a good start:

    Fair enough argument.

    But the reality is that people like him are not allowed their views in the UK. They are well censored. The liberals have monopoly on the press and act as gatekeepers/qualifiers on what message gets out and is shared.

    Take for example this poll of proportion of UK people that support homosexual marriage:

    https://yougov.co.uk/news/2013/05/20...-sex-marriage/

    Then you realise 100% of UK TV stations are pro-homosexual marriage. There is not a single UK TV station that is not liberal-orientated. And the TV is the most powerful and followed media.

    He is allowed to have his views just as others are allowed to have theirs.
    People have a right to respect and dont have to be disrespected or worse just because of their sexuality.

    Broadcasters are under a legal duty to respect equality and diversity.
    Which broadcaster would you like to be homophobic?
    Are you homophobic?

    It isnt wrong, but when his actions start affecting others then he has to be careful he stays the right side of the law. Same as if you want to be a racist.

    I think we should give OP a chance to voice his opinions so we can respectfully dispute it. Getting worked out and ******** on people are not going to change their mind. At the end of it, we are all human beings that will eventually listen to reason (I hope).

    Hmm imo, I think it is perfectly fine for people to be gay or whatever they like because its something that is inevitable. You are either gay or you are not, its not a choice. Simply put or more crudely put, I see boobs, I am attracted, I see dicks, I have no reaction.

    Apart from that, the argument that they will cause the downfall of humans cause no babies doesnt hold. There are loads of people who are choosing to stay single and nobody shits on them for that choice. Even if we disallow gays to get together, they are still not going to get married. The impression that there is a large outspread of gays or LGBT community is not due to influence or conversion. IMO, not backed by statistics though I believe if you search enough you should find something, is that it is simply because people are now relatively more comfortable coming out of the closet.

    For OP, if somebody "forced you to be gay", I assume you were sexually harassed. That is not right regardless of if they are gay or not, but it is because a small isolated group rather than the whole population. Just because some guys are rapists doesn't mean that all men are evil or bad.


    Just my 2 cents on this issue

    Maybe you should get a hobby instead of caring so much about things that don't concern you. Just a suggestion.

    You should be kind to people. If you aren't trying to be nice and understanding towards people then what's the ****ing point? Every time you refuse to be accepting and open-minded you're holding yourself back.

    There's so much hatred in the world, don't be a part of that. Be kind.

    Homophobia does not occur in the natural world, therefore it is unnatural and perverse.
    Oh really?

    You are not abnormal for having an opinion. It is only when you think it's OK to do anything about your opinion which might reverberate on the group you are voicing an opinion about i.e. in an illegal or anti-social manner that you step out of the 'I've got a right to my opinion' scenario.
    I can't think why you have an issue as to why other people are or are not homophobic.
    All I can advise you to do is to get out more, get a life, and mind your own ****ing business as to how other people choose to conduct their lives.
    This from a mother of 7 - two of whom are gay and in 13 and 17 year relationships.
    Have a nice day. X

    They love shoving their agenda up people's throats. Their little marches and anti-biological nature.
    Not once in my life have I (a straight man) had anyone from the LGBT community try and shove any sort of agenda down my throat.

    Religious people and political extremists on the other hand...

    What do you mean by "affecting others"?

    If they find it "offensive", it should be censored?
