I read the thread to the 13th page and decided to skip forward, so if I interject, I apologize, but I had some things to say.
My logic regarding homosexuality.
You can't corral heterosexuals into these neat little compartments called bigot, homophobe, closed-minded and religious zealot. If it were that
simple you would've won the argument already. The simple truth is that most heterosexuals have an aversion to homosexuality and find it disgusting
Let's address each. A bigot is someone who hates and is intolerant and won't listen to other peoples opinions. I think you'll find most people here
listen to each other and respond. Homophobia is the irrational fear of or aversion to homosexuality. I don't consider my opinion as irrational, in
fact I consider it quite normal. Closed-minded? No. I'm here reading a thread on homosexuality. If I were closed-minded I wouldn't be here in the
first place. Religious? No. I just have personal convictions about right, wrong and the natural order of things.
Now that all of those have failed, I guess I'm just a heterosexual guy with an average and normal opinion on homosexuality, clearly supported by the
majority of the human population.
As a heterosexual male, I find anal sex disgusting and repulsive. I would never even consider it with a woman, much less a man. I'm willing to bet a
large number of heterosexuals feel the same way I do. Thus, the anal sex argument is pointless.
My point: A lot of assumptions are made about heterosexuals, mostly in an attempt to win a point in an argument. Funny thing is they never stick,
because they're based on wild accusation and emotional over-reaction.
Now getting to the original post. I saw the post in question, in the other thread (rape, murder = homosexuality). I don't necessarily agree with it,
but I do agree with the common theme, which is this... If you take perversion and make it acceptable and normal in society, which is what's happened
in the last 30 years or more, where else do you have to go but farther down into immorality and perversion? And so bestiality and pedophilia don't
seem that far-fetched, especially considering the way the country is going. Society can't exist without boundaries and a good moral compass. Seems
like today everything is aimed at tearing down boundaries and letting it be a free-for-all.
One other thing. I do agree with the fact that a person's sexuality should be private and shouldn't be flaunted. If you make it a point to put it in
peoples faces all the time, don't expect to be respected or treated equal, because you're not trying to be equal, you're trying to be an annoyance to
get attention. It's not the right way to go about it.
I don't care if you're a homosexual. I don't care what you do in your bedroom. Don't expect me to change my personal opinions, convictions or my
moral compass, so you can feel better about being a homosexual. That's not how it works. You can't force-feed something like sexuality down a
person's throat and expect them to accept it. How hard is it to understand that there are still people in this country that have strong moral
convictions about right, wrong and what is normal? Doesn't make them bigots, homophobes or anything else, just good people with traditional
There will always be people who will be against what you're all about. The key is to treat people like fellow human beings, not people to be
exploited and annoyed in your quest for equality. There are better ways to change peoples minds. I've not seen any of those yet.
I think the main problem is that homosexuals want so very badly to not just have equality, but to change people and make them accept homosexuality in
the core of their being. That's not going to happen.
