    It's Funny.

    It's funny. I spent a fair portion of the past hour trying to think about what to write as a story for this group. I've had experiences seeing homophobia and its consequences, and I could ramble on about its consequences, but I'd rather not. Instead, I'll say this: It's funny...

    People are people and I love meeting them all. Why would I rule out the beauty of a person simply based on what they like in the bedroom?  I would have missed out on lots of friendships in my lifetime had I done that.

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with being a

    homosexual. The Christians who say homosexuality is a sin aren't thinking to differently from ISIS or ISIL when they (ISIS or ISIL) distort the Quran to their own twisted belief system. I've never read the Quran but I'm pretty sure there's nothing in it about beheading innocent...

    I hate the word "Homophobic.

    " It is not a phobia! You're not scared, you're just a disrespectful ******* who can't accept people for who they are. To me there is no difference between a different sex couple and a same sex couple, the idea of love is the same for each and is just as valuable.

    same gender? Great! As long as you don't force anything on me, I'm fine with it. A lot of peopel have gotten upset because I just don't react when they come out. Honestly, I don't care. Go do what you want as much as you want, as long as it's not hurting anyone.
