    I am gay, and I'm from China. I came to the U.S. for grad school two years ago. Now I've graduated and just got a job (lucky!), in the consulting business. I like my job, and my boss. And I have no problem working with my coworkers, professionally, and they are decent people. BUT...

    So?

    Yeah, I did, but so what? Why is it so fascinating what other people do? If you think of it as so horrible and sinful then just don't do it yourself and stop talking about it on and on. I don't think homosexuality will ever be obliterated because people are born that way. There...
