    I was a break in school today

    I envision falling in love with people,

    not just their gender. Love is much deeper than that.

    Of course gays should have rights,

    but I also think I should not have their life style forced upon me as something I have to agree with. I say live and let live, but would all you gay people please just keep your private business private?

    For Me It'S Simple.

    For me it has always been simple. At the age of ten I watched a TV show with a gay character. I learned about his struggles and to be honest, I didn't understand why he struggled. At that age I didn't see anything wrong with a boy liking another boy. I didn't have any issues with...

    Everyone, Everywhere

    Until we level the playing field so that everyone has the same rights and responsibilities, we will never achieve an equitable society. It is is difficult enough in this world to find someone to share mutual love and respect, without imposing such restrictions on love.Long...

    I don't like how we class them

    as gay. People are people. And rights are more so privileges but that's another story.

    Sexuality In the Military

    It's 1 reason why if I decide to be Christian

    when I'm older, I'm not going to be Catholic because I don't believe in sexism & anti-gay. My opinion is that homophobics are poorly educated. There seems to be no other good explanation.

    I am not gay. I wouldn't want to be.

    And sometimes, I don't approve of their lifestyle. (I don't want to be a hypocrite). HOWEVER, that doesn't mean they shouldn't have rights. They are still humans. Love is love and the heart wants what the heart wants. Even if I HATED gays, that gives me no right to dehumanize...
