I can't be bothered to read through the thread as I've just found it and it already has a TON of flags and stars.
I agree with the OP, I always laugh, literally out loud, when I hear someone talk about the homosexual agenda. Apparently, there was a homo meeting
that I wasn't invited to.
In response to "how has homosexuality impacted my life" well, that is a story that makes me who I am, and how I view myself and the people who would
be hateful towards me, deny me rights I deserve, etc etc.
I am a gay man. I am not effeminate, I am very much a "man" in the entire sense of the word, and I happen to be homosexual. I have always known I am
gay, and I have never lied to myself about it. I came out to my mother at fifteen years old (more so she found a letter to a friend that I was coming
out to), she stopped speaking to me immediately. Told her fiance that I am gay (she used far more colorful words) and he decided to beat me and then
kicked me out of the house.
This is the last I've ever spoken to my mother, her choice and that is that. I've lived my own life since that time, and luckily I had very
understanding friends, whose parents took me in and to this day have been my own parents.
I've been the victim of violence, discrimination, and outright hate because I am not what I am told I need to be to be "normal."
I don't want normal, if it means that I can't be understanding of other peoples differences, that just because I don't understand something I would
need to hate it, and label it a sin.
I have never harmed another person (except in self-defense) because of my homosexuality.
I have no agenda, I am not trying to convert others to homosexuality, but I will never stop being who I am.
