Why Is Being Gay a Bad Thing?
I don't get why being gay is so horrible. Some of the greatest and most respected people were or are gay. Leonardo Da Vinci was (supposedly) gay and he is one the most (if not the most) renowned artists and inventors around the world. The reason why I ask this is because when I tell someone that I'm gay I get a reaction that seems like I have some kind of disease. It's like these people think that they're going to catch "the gay" from me like it's the boubonic plague or something. Now don't get me wrong, I don't always get this kind of reaction, but it's not rare. You would think in this day and age that society would be more comfortable with the idea of homosexuals living among the rest of the population. I don't know why this is but It's something that has been bothering me since I came out.
