Could you explain this a little more? Just curious.....thanks. I'm trying my hardest to stay away from this GOD awfull thread but was curious what
you ment by this statement.
Edit: And is this not a generalization/stereotype you are perpetuating for yourself?

For starters, i am not religous, and dont believe homosexuality is some crime against some invisible god. i dont believe homosexuals are some mutated
abnormal sick humans with evil tendancies.
What i eant by my above statement:
Most gays I knew lived totally irresponsible lives, even those of "high" social standing. They engaged in risky, irresponsible acts like cruising,
annonomous sex partners, multiple sex activities, risky drug use, and amoral attitudes towards alot of things.
Its not their preferences in sex partners. If they dig other men and women, thats their thing. But i have found, that msot gays find the idea of
personal responsibility towards the feelings of others you are involved with, and the idea of having a monogamous relationship with a person and
forming a deep bond of love, loyalty, and respect and trust, seems like an anethema.
Not that all gays are shameless husseys. its just there is such a tiny minority, in my experience, actually wish to embrace a positive sort of
lfiestyle. i feel that the tendancy towards impersonal promescuity and amoral attidue towards many things, the the unwillingness to set limits and
standards and personal codes of ethics and such, unhealthy. Not only for gays, but for heterosexuals too. but unfortunately, tis alot more prominent
not to say gays are simply immoral rutting animals with no self control. Its simply the main gay culture that allows such things. i often wonder why
things like monogamous, lasting reltionships between two homosexuals are not more heavily promoted and encouraged. i mean, it would cut down on
disease rates, and would really improve the quality of life for many gays, as it has been found, that gays suffer with alot of difficult emotional
issues that only get worse when they engage in endless streams of meaningless, impersonal, sexual relations. i think if gays would get over the
attitude of monogamy being a boring "breeder" activity, they would find they too could reap great emotional, social, and spiritual rewards of having
their own special 'someone", that is exclusively their own.
I have known a couple of gay people who had lifetime partners, and it really helped them cope and grow as people, and they became more positive mebers
of society, but unfortunately, the vast majority i have known simply set no boundaries and limits on what they will do and except, and this kind of
behavior, gay, straight, or vegesexual (my own term for asexual) is totally destructive not only to the individual, but to the whole of the community.
Again, im not saying all gays, but the vast majority seem to want a lifestyle with no limits or boundaries on whats exceptable, whether its sex,
drugs, ect, and this really harms them and people around them, and has serious lasting consequences for all.
I dont support gay marriage, i support civil unions with all the full benefits of a heterosexual marriage. i simply do not like the concept of calling
it a marriage. marriage is for a man and wife. Wife is the old anglo saxon word for an adult female. A marriage is a union of the opposite sex.
But I believe a union of full legal recognition should be available to gays. Such a thing will help, in my opinion, encourage gay people to settle
down and seek out a soulmate. i think gays should really get together and create a special ceremony. the union of a same sex couple is different in
many aspects to a union of opposite sexes, and thus, should have a special ceremony refelcting the unique principals and issues of such a union. Why
gays would want to mimic heterosexual rites is beyond me. Youre gay. Youre not bride and groom. You are two lovers of like body and mental make up. I
special ceremony and title should reflect it.
these are just my opinions. likie i said, it annoys me the general amorality i have experienced amongst gays i have known. ive known heterosexuals of
the same mentality, but encounter them far less.
i simply think the mentality that pervades the gay community is an unhealthy and destructive one, thats all.
It has nothing to do believing some nonsense that being gay is a sin and someones god hates gays.
