Now I don't know if this is true or not... but a sociology teacher I had a couple of years ago talked about this study that someone did. I can't
find it anywhere on the net. I would have to look for my old notes for some details. But here's basically what she said:
In gay men there is a part of the brain that is shaped more like it would be in a female. (forgive me I forgot which part of the brain) So for men
being gay is not a choice.
(here's where this gets odd) In straight/gay females the brain is the same. They somehow came to the conclusion that females "turn gay" mostly
because of bad experiences with men.
Like I said, those aren't my words.... this was said from a college professor. I really wish I could find the study she was referring too.
In my opinion, there is no simple answer for this. Not every gay person is the same... and YES some of them do CHOOSE to be gay/bisexual. (the key
word there was some) Some of them don't and ARE born that way.
(I don't necessarily take the bible as 'God's word', but for the sake of this thread...)
The "adam and eve, not adam and steve" argument is ridiculous. God (the real one lol) HAD to put one male and one female in the garden..... why?...
so that they could HAVE CHILDREN. Think about it. It wasn't about "love" it was about starting the human race. Just because a man and a woman were
placed in the garden doesn't make homosexuality wrong.... it was just a logical thing to do. If it were possibly for people of the same sex to have
children together anyone could have been in that garden.
All the people saying "god doesn't want people to be gay, blah, blah, blah".... Trust me... you have no idea what God wants. All you have is a
bible that has been corrupted and perverted by the hands of man for thousands of years. I don't think God really cares who you love, as long as you
Those of you who find homosexuality "repulsive"......
Yes, public displays of affection between people of the same sex CAN be a bit uncomfortable to witness, especially if you disagree with the gay
lifestyle. Some things should be kept in the bedroom. However, straight people are guilty of the same displays too. What about obese people who dress
as if they're supermodels? What about mullets?
Either turn your head, or walk the other way. There are plenty of things that I find
repulsive... I avoid it when I can and go about my business.
I happen to work in a town that houses a college which a LOT of gay people attend. The inside joke around here is if you're not gay before you go to
that school, you will be within weeks/months of going there. (it's just a joke) I get to observe a lot of gay people at work, though. From my
observations I've concluded that society is more accepting of the "feminine gay male" than of the "masculine gay female". Hell, I'm guilty of
it myself. There's something about a woman who dresses up like a boy/man that..... I just don't get...
The more feminine gay male will just act a little girly. The voice, mannerisms, stance, etc.
Some of the women go as far as shaving their heads and dressing to look as much as a boy as possible. *shrugs* I'm good at reading people and I've
observed atleast 6+ women who are so obviously uncomfortable being dressed the way they are that I don't get WHY they put themselves through it. They
just got this "I hate doing this" look written all over there faces. Head bowed... flushed face... looks like they're about to burst into tears at
any moment. And other than some obvious stares, (that should be expected) no one is bothering them (no threats, name calling, not even any muffled
laughter) . *shrugs*
I just don't get it. However, just because I don't approve of it, doesn't make it "wrong"
