I have no problem with people who are gay getting married. They should have that freedom.
Some say it is a choice to be gay some say it is something you are born into and have no choice.
It is really both, depending on the person. I have seen a few people that I knew of since childhood, that acted like the oposite sex from the time
they were very young. I guess you could say they were born with too much estrogene or testosterone, depending on the sex.
There are also quite a few that make the choice out of nessecity. I know of people that who in the teen years and beyond, because of various reasons,
(usually because of appearance) had to choose to be gay, or be alone. I almost had to make that choice because I was over-weight. Because the public
was unaccepting of this choice at the time I stayed alone and held out. Thank GOD for that. I lost weight, found the woman I love and now have
grandchildren. None of the hardships of being with the same-sex partner, and I have been with my soulmate, and am really happy, because I was never
attracted to the same sex, but when you are young and dumb, flesh is flesh.
I dont know for sure what would have happened in this time of teens being nearly transgendered in this present time. I may have made the wrong
My point is this. There are a lot of teens teatering one way or the other and only need that little push, lets make sure we are responcible, thinking,
caring adults and push them in the right direction. Let them know there are some that can choose and some that cannot because of the way they are
born. Dont make this something trendy, or so politicly correct that some poor kid makes the wrong choices in life, I think there are many more that
are like that than you would think.
Also I must say, it is NOT a right to be a parent. Children are inoccent and do not need to have something that most of nature doesnt participate in
be a role model for them from the time they are young. That is a very selfish thing to do IMHO.
One of the big problems with this country is the fact that no one knows there role in life. More and more we go down this path of thinking we should
all do the same thing. We are different, and have different skills for the most part. We are politacly correcting ourselves to death.
I know of a Firefighter that is the guy YOU want helping you when you are in a bad place. This person is also an instructor at our local fire
accedamy. There was a female student that during ladder rescue of an unconcience patient didnt have the strength to lower this other student down the
ladder. The fire instructor took her aside and stated "If you really want to do this you should start lifting weights". Did not even hint towards a
gender bias, just stated the fact that she needs to make herself stronger. You see we go into structure fires as teams, and if I go through a floor
into a flaming basement filled with black smoke, (burning basements are like hell) she needs to be strong enough to help me get out so I dont die down
there. Every female Firefighter I know is strong enough to do this, they made themselves that way. Because of this policaly correct world this case is
getting out of hand and this Firefighter is going to be sued and lose his instructor status for this incident. He may even lose his job, this would be
a bad thing for our community, because this guy WILL risk his life to save YOUR kids.
Society needs to start using its collective head, and stop trying to save everyones feelings!
