    Oh, so you like having sex with people of the

    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.

    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.

    Is That Going to Be a Problem?

    Growing up in Cali we are very open to new things, and homosexuality is just a part of everyday life. I know lots of couples who are gay and have a few close friends who are too and we chat and talk about out relationships like there is no difference. I really don't think this...

    I Was Not Placed On This World to Judge

    Like the title says, I used to be a huge homophobe. I would walk down the streets of my home town and just say hateful and spiteful things about homosexuals. I believed that all homosexuals were damned to hell. I never supported violence against homosexuals, as I am disgusted by...

    My One Regret

    It's clear that many people can't deal with things they're not used to. People judge tattoos, wild hairstyles, you name it! Personally, I find it easier to be who I want to be, and be cool when everyone else does the same. Why should anyone have to be uncomfortable to show their...

    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.
