One day soon it will be legal for pedephiles to have sex with children and it will be because this society have no morals and everyone want you to believe that homosexuality is not a choice, It is a choice but what is this sick society going to say when they are asked to accept pediphiles as normal behavior, which one of you is going to offer up your child for these monsters to have sex with.



My God, it really depresses me when I think there
are people out there with these backward, religious
views. What has pediphiles got to do with being gay? Are you saying all pediphiles are attracted to children of the same sex?

Are you saying being gay is the same as apediphiles
raping and molesting children?

So, gays have a choice ? So you telling me that these countries where gay people are beaten, tortored and killed, chose to be gay? That is absolutely ridiculous.

My brother is gay, and he went through a terrible time when he came out. Lost his friends, and even had to move away. Even was suicidal. So, he chose to lose his friends, and move away? He chose to be gay to feel suicidal?

Now, he is the happiest I have ever seen him. Been with the same partner for about 15 years.

Really, I should just ignore people like you because it really opens my eyes to the fact that we are still so primitive and backward, who use fairy tales to decide what's right and what is wrong

the problem in how we should identified with same sex reside so much within religious views as much as social standards, all this inculcated into us by family and upbringing. But social views are changing, while religious views are still in the dark ages for most part.




We are all, what one might call, “autosexual”

….regardless of whom we choose to be with sexually, the sex act itself is just as "auto" as masturbation. It is all taking place in our MIND, and like you said, religious views are still in the dark ages. No AUTO sex act is more “evil” than any other, even if we think and feel they are… our emotional reactions are based on BELIEFS we hold… those BELIEFS are based on social programming… our BEHAVIOR is at liberty/free (or limited/held back) by our BELIEFS (or the lack of it).

BELIEF is a choice. Often a choice we don't understand... often based on a False Authority outside ourselves.

See ..with homosexuals... there is a choice between two consenting humans...





Who really cares??

What goes on behind closed doors is up to those concerned and no one else's

business. As long as it is between TWO
CONSENTING ADULTS

They've done a hell of a job completely derailing the thread too...

Which I have no doubt was the plan from the word go.





Ask the question you did, outright...

And due to the lack of a coherent or logical response to back up their homophobic nonsense, deflection is guaranteed, to disguise their homophobic nonsense!


S&F.

Hopefully this thread gets back on track.

They might choose to act but they don't choose the desire to act.

The desire to engage sexually with a child isn't a choice. It's just something they feel they want.

Just like we all desire whatever we desire sexually. They choose to act on that desire the same as we all choose to act on ours. Or choose not to act.

Again, the desire isn't a choice but acting on it is.

Exactly..if you care about what two gay people do in the room..what does that say about you?

Constantly thinking about gay sex...kinda makes you ...well you know..


Religious people are always about the gay sex...why are they constantly thinking about it..sheesh

Who says it's not a choice?

That's an impossible thing to study!

Scientific Method could not determine whether that is true or false...


So it remains your opinion.

Like its my opinion they do choose.

Some pastors who have been preaching against homosexuality have been outed as being homosexuals.

Makes you think about the rest of those kinds of pastors and Christians.

Its not a ''choice'' like we choose what to eat.
But you are not born gay!

Over time your life experiences mould who you become. Maybe it was something in your childhood, maybe it was something in your teenage years, but over time your mind adapts and you become who you are.

the only choice you make, is the choice to suppress it and pretend or the choice to accept it and be free.

I do not think you are born with an attraction to children..might be wrong though. I think it is from being a psychopath or being abused as a child and wanting revenge on society..so they do the same things in order to gain sense of control they lacked as a child.

I have always thought with attraction, follows love but how can one say they are attracted to another and yet do horrible things to them.

I'll answer it, no being sexually attracted to children is not a choice, acting out on those desires is a choice.

Why would some go through castration in order to stop their sexual desires when they could just choose to be attracted to adults instead?

And a huge NO, not everyone has had a sexual attraction to the same gender. I can admire a beautiful woman doesn't mean I want to share my life with one.

PEDOPHILES, its just sexual. They are predators who only care about their sexual needs. They are completely different to gay, or straight people who are in normal relationshios because there is love, its not just sex.

I disagree, you are born that way. For people to say it is not...then at some point in their life they had to have been attracted to both sexes...but made aconscience decision to be like the opposite sex.

If I were wrong..then explain how a child with two parents(mother and father) who were against gays...(so obviously their lives were not moulded by any gay upbringing or lifestyle) still turn out gay?

Happens all the time.

Ditto on your thoughts, it's an eye opener that people like this still exist , don't engage is my tip, you can't argue with crazy.

a reply to: CharlieSpeirs

The fact that many of them hate the fact that they have that desire and no matter how much they would love to be attracted to normal adults yet cannot seem to break away from that desire is what I base my opinion.

How much have you looked into it??? Have you ever listened to the testimonies of some of them who struggle with all the problems it causes in their life???

Why would they choose that if they had the option???

Every single thing you do in life is a choice. This is no different.

I'm not saying you're born with it either. But it's not exactly a choice. Maybe it's from abuse or who knows what exactly, but I don't think they were sitting around debating on whether they should choose to be attracted to adults or children and just for the hell of it decided to choose kids to be attracted to.

The things you "do" yes. They are a choice. Not how you "feel".

The feeling I have to beat the hell out of some annoying A-Hole who won't shut up about some stupid ideas he keeps yelling isn't something I choose to feel, however I do choose to act on those feelings.

I will say it again - if you've ever watched pornography and been turned on by a male and a female having sex on screen, you are not 100% straight and cannot claim that you've never been turned on by a man. You were turned on by what a naked man was doing to a naked woman...
actually the presence of a male in your fictional pornography would only cause a male to lose his arousal if that said male was homophobic and feared the presence of other nude males.
have you ever been in a locker room? or in as public bathroom with a communal urinal? most males are very desensitized to the presence of penises.

your premise is laughable


To be clear where I stand in this debate, it is not a choice.

We have differing opinions but am choosing not to discuss it.
As it is not the topic of thread. That idiot almost succeeded in derailing thread. Let us not give him the satisfaction of continuing on down this road.

Back to the topic at hand please.

Thank you.
