    I don't think people understand how hard it is

    for people who are or aren't openly gay. It's not someone's choice to be gay its natural. I hate seeing people get bullied over their sexuality it's sickening. Nobody's perfect...

    I witnessed people who make fun to my friends many times before. I'm a lesbian but with a little luck I haven't got in the same situation as my friends who are not exactly like their looks, just try to imagine what they called you when they knew you're gay. When I was in high...

    It is very hard for homosexual people to live

    in my country it is very very dangerous and would not be good to live here I have seen the bad things that happened to them even if there lifestyle was wrong they do not deserve to be hurt You don't see people beating up alcoholics for drinking.

    Schizophrenia is linked to homosexuality,

    now there's nothing wrong with being gay but I think it's obvious something is wrong when your body is attracted to the same sex, you won't reproduce and at a basic biological level that is the goal of life

    What's annoying is when people try to use the

    term 'gay' as an insult. It's very ignorant to even associate someone's sexual orientation as something negative. We don't substitute the word 'stupid' with 'straight', so why is it okay to say 'that's gay'?

    I really don't like how they portray gay people

    in the media as these really flamboyant and fashion savvy men with heavy lisps and these butch lesbians with short hair, deep voices, and aggressive nature. I know some might be like that in some ways, but that's not how I am. I'm a guy that likes other guys and I don't act like...

    With One Exception...

    ...If the fun-maker is gay or lesbian themselves! It's the old dilemma:  "Are you laughing with me,at universal foibles and failings? Or are you laughing at me for perceived differences,for being "other"?

    Gay people are amazing

    and anyone who thinks they aren't, really needs to shut their mouth and open their mind. I'm not gay, but if I were, I wouldn't hesitate to slap the first person to insult me based on sexuality. I'm sick of all these homo-phobes.

    and my sexuality came up, unfortunately this is a regular occurrence. She said "why can't I have a gay best friend? I know you're bi but I want a real GBF. You're just not gay enough." I felt so offended by the random stereotyping of me "not being gay enough" considering I'm...

    I support gays and lesbians.

    And this is my thought: imagine if we, straight people, were always judged because we are showing love to our bf/gf, how would we feel? Put yourself on their shoes, be empathic. I bet you would hate it to the point of hating yourself. So respect their decision and respect them.
