Well, to approach this from a philosophical standpoint, I'd say that "we", collectively, are confused on the issue, and we're simply debating it
within the collective mind. That's what humans do....we debate, we influence, we learn, we form opinions, we change opinions, and we learn some
more. No sense in getting upset about it. We need to learn how to separate ourselves from the physical experience, STOP directing personal attacks,
and STOP taking statements as personal attacks - this is not about YOU, this is about US as a whole. We are NOT what we do in bed...we are spirits in
human bodies, reacting to the desires of our own flesh...think and debate this from the spirit stance, and not from the physical stance, and maybe,
just MAYBE we could have an educated debate about it. Clearly, if the whole world agreed with same-sexed relations, then we wouldn't have this
problem, now would we? I figure it's about like having your right hand fighting your left hand...we're all part of the whole, so let's approach it
I don't think it's wrong for anyone to voice their thoughts or opinions. I love my gay friends the same as I love my hippie friends, my
conservative friends, my military friends and my anti-government friends. No one is pushing their agendas here, but everyone wants to feel heard,
because that's how humans are wired.
I don't know what it's like to be gay, so therefore I cannot adequately empathize. I've had gay dreams, and I've looked at people who are my own
sex and I've thought, "dang, they're hot - if I were gay....", but it doesn't make me gay. I've been hit on and invited to do strange things
over the years, and if I had said yes to all those things, no telling how messed up my life would be right now. But that's just it....I made a
choice....scratch that, I made MANY choices to stay on one particular path, and I don't regret it. But for ME...my experiences have been a CHOICE,
and my life could have been completely different had I chosen to say yes one too many times.
So, for ME, I would ask gays to understand how I've formed my own opinions based on my own experiences. I've CHOSEN this life. I do not have gay
tendencies, but I can easily see how if I let my youthful curiosity get the better of me, I could be sitting here arguing the other side of the
debate. So if I have experienced this, you can understand how I can come to the conclusion that many self-proclaiming gays have arrived at their
"gayness" by the same methods that were presented to me all those years ago....except they said yes and never stopped saying yes.
Now, this doesn't mean I believe ALL gays fall under this umbrella, but I do believe a lot do. For the other VERY small percentage, I do believe
there is a DNA issue, which I mentioned before. In which case, I want to know if it's good or bad....and if it's bad, then maybe we need a cure. I
say "we", because our collective body is growing enormously with the gay community and it DOES affect each of us. The "live and let live" concept
is great, and I agree to a certain extent. However, what people don't realize is that when you witness something in someone else, it is a reflection
of you and what is going on in the collective human spirit. So "we" DO need to be interested in this, and we DO need to talk about it, and we DO
need to explore it from a truthful standpoint so that we can either adjust to it correctly or fix it if it needs to be fixed.
Can everyone understand where I'm coming from, without feeling offended? I am not offended by harsh gay comments because I'm straight, and no one
here should feel offended because you are gay. Insulting you is the same as insulting myself, and vice versa. You are a part of me, and I'm a part
of you, plain and simple. If we all approached every problem or conflict in the world with this same philosophy, people would pause before they said
anything, and would immediately consider what it is about themselves they don't like, that they see reflected in the world around them.
