Guys, I believe that we just arent as "civilized" as we pretend to be. We might have ipads, flushing toilets, and nukes, but we're still primitive
in so many ways. To me, its primitive to view a person as completely useful to society and liked/admired even UNTIL you find their sexual preference.
Its as bad as hanging witches because they have a funny birthmark or mole.
We certainly dont seem to be evolving either, devolving perhaps.
Im straight.. and I dont care who anyone else is in love with, what gender they are, or what they do in their bedrooms. I am MUCH more concerned with
character and achievement when looking for people to allow into my bubble or etc. I personally dont see sexual preference as a choice. The choice
comes in with lifestyle, but certainly not who we/they choose to love or who we/they are attracted to. Lifestyle choices encompass heteros too.. but
we heteros seem to forget this. Not all heteros are in pristine opposite sex relationships with one man or woman and puritan in sexual appetites. It
just seems hypocritical to me that anything goes as long as its an opposite sex couple, but even mention a homosexual couple in a long term monogamous
relationship and its automatically wrong and immoral. Personally Id rather see a solid homosexual couple raise kids than some of the heteros out there
who shouldn't be in charge of raising gerbils but feel its their "God given right" to procreate at random.
The GAY DEBATE has been pretty popular on ATS recently. I got a new account a bit ago and decided to participate again here.. and wow. I somehow
remember it as being more intelligent debate in previous years on ATS. Ive actually seen the anti-gay crowd on here defend their position saying that
sex should only be for procreation and THATS why homosexuality is wrong.
I like different views expressed, even by the anti-gay crowd as it is a
learning experience.Some are against homosexuality for religious reasons yet they dont bash or shun.. which is a more civilized way IMO. The problem
comes in when you have posts like the ones we see even on this thread concerning a "scientific discovery". Gay is bad.. they arent quite sure why..
but its bad and they will ridicule it. So much for social evolution. More like social de-evolution because we have seen time and time again in
archaeology and sociological investigations that homosexuals not only maintain a normal position in societies, but are contributors and accepted by
the whole of the society. As soon as you speak about homosexuality being accepted in Greece and Rome, pederasty gets thrown into there as if they are
synonymous. Some have no real concept of the social issues in ancient societies and even if you draw it in crayon for them, their mind is already made
up concerning it.
Given this subject, there will be no denying ignorance.
Off to do my women's work in my gender role based society.. good thing too, the husband cant cook worth squat.
