    Even More Confusion!

    Biologically, homosexuals shouldn't exist. It makes no sense whatsoever, in terms of reproduction and survival of the fittest. I like to stick with cold, hard science, but it has trouble explaining why there are people who get over the gender barrier. This probably sounds like a...

    Love Is Unconditional

    Regardless of gender, love comes in all forms and it happens for a reason. You love that person for who they are not what they are.

    Loving Her

    I used to consider myself bisexual...I don't anymore. I got confused and thought more about which label I should slap on myself more than what it was that my heart simply felt. Now I don't really consider myself anything other than who I am. I have a boyfriend and we've been...

    Being judged because of your sexual orientation

    is a commonplace thing today. I really don't understand the concept of people who have narrow mindedness and impose their thoughts on society. What problem could anyone have if two people of the same gender happen to like and love each other? Love comes in on forms so why do...

    Looking Around, You See Everyone Falling In Love

    If the point of this category is to make a stand against people who believe a man can't be romantically in love with another man, or a woman with another woman, or that someone born with the wrong gender identity should just learn to be 'normal,' like 'the rest of us,' then I'm...

    Finally

    I have always believed that it's about love and not gender.  And so many people just don't understand.  If my husband (who I'm having problems with at the time) were a woman, I would still love him/her.  I didn't fall in love with his penis.  I fell in love...

    What Is Wrong With Being In A Civil Partnership?

    I don't understand what is wrong with being in a civil partnership? I am not in one myself but I don't understand why people say "oh, he's so gay" as an insult. I imagine it is really offensive! I reckon 10-15% of my school are gay or lesbian, and even though we have talks on...

    Too Many People!

    Just too many people judge others before they have even offered the pleasant civilities of a greeting. Too many people are slow to being kind to others. I want to be more than others are prepared to be, without judging them foolishly and missing out on an opportunity of showing...

    I think I'll always love him eventhough we might not end up being together as a couple. He can feel my pain and he wants me to be happy. I hope he will stay as my bestfriend.
