You stated: "...who the parent sleeps with.."
This is a PERSONAL choice on an individual basis, thus the comparison to beasiality. You can't change your mind now and say "between two consenting
"No you can't push your sexual orientation(sp?) onto someone else" No? I saw a documentry about two lesbian women who encouraged their daughter to
experiment with women as well as men.
"Are you saying if a straight person to pushed enough, they can/will become gay?"
Maybe. It depends on how the child wants to revolt against the parent/s.
"So because one person is able to live they way they were created, straight, they get the privilage of adopting children, or getting married?"
Adoption was meant for heterosexual couples who could't have babies naturally, not for homosexual couples who, because of their decision are unable
to have babies naurally. Marriage was created for man/women, not man/man or woman/woman.
If there was adam/adam or eve/eve, we would not exist today.
"Even if both sets of people have the same morals"
If you think it's OK morally to insert something somewhere that is designed naturally to excrete something else then I'm afraid to say it that you
are wrong. Whether it's hetero or gay anal fantasies, it'n not normal and if you say it is then, well...I have no comment : )
"Oh you mean like the Women's right movement? or the equal rights movements?"
What has womens rights got to do with sexual choice? Womens rights started with the sufrogets (sp?) regarding votes. regarding equal rights - yes, I
believe people should be given equal rights but you also have to balance this with common sense.
"how far fetched is it that some people are born with different orientation?"
It's funny isn't it. I remember years ago the gay lobby groups were arguing that you were not born gay. Are they now saying that you are born
"Umm I walked in on my straight parents"
Yeah, ditto...ditto re the mind f%$# as well. However I think it would be "compounded" if you walked in on someone doing something that aint
"after hearing aout how becoming a hairdresser made some kid a homosexual. I laughed and moved on"
Well, you didn't hear the story from the person (father) I spoke to so I expect that sort of reaction. BTW, the father pulled his son from
hair-dressing and he eventually lost all the "gay" trademarks.
It's good to see you both resort to personal attacks:
"...shows your level of intellegance. Low..."
"...some people will cling to their petty beliefs..."
Most people, when put in a situation they don't know how to handle normally respond with personal attacks - it's human nature (whether you're gay
or not : )
Another questin for you:
Why do some gay males adopt the "girlie" voice? If being gay is natural then shouldn't a child, one they can talk, start talking this way? LOL...I
think not. Becoming gay is a matter of CHOICE based on your "environment"...some make that choice because they "feel" they get on better with the
opposite sex and there are many other reasons as well.
"Homosexuals are just like everybody else, except they love another person of their same sex. They cant help it, it's just something that
"raising a child is all about loving the child, and teaching him/her values, right and wrong, and tolerance of others"
Agree as well, however how can you teach a child "right and wrong" or "values" when you, yourself (not personally you), can't even figure out the
basics of life.
I agree, sorry for that direction but, due to peoples "soap boxes" this is the way it normally goes.
I assume you love your adopting parents and I sympathise regarding your natural parents. There are many possible reasons for that; it's highly
possible that you were created with love and just that maybe your natural parents may have wanted a better life for you; I'm sure they did it in YOUR
best interest...and that's what counts : )
"Also I would like to mention that I am not anti-gay, and I believe that gay people should be allowed legal protections with respect to
decision-making power over each other such as when one partner is disabled, but with respect to raising children, it's not just the gay couple's
rights at stake, it's the childs too."
