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.

Please my friend dont worry about it its just they dont understand and if people dont understand they get scared you keep that chin up and walk tall my friend all the time

Tell me something Cole. Why are you gay? This is serious, I have buddies who are or bi. Can you give me a thorough explanation? I promise I will not ridicule you, I have no reason to

The only reason anyone is gay is because they are attracted, sexually, romantically, every way, to the same gender as themselves. There's no other answer. Why are you straight? Because you're attracted to the opposite sex, right? Well, gays are attracted to the same sex. I am not Cole, but I doubt he will answer because this is an old post.

The same reason why you are straight you get the feelings for girls he gets the same only its for guys . He dont like every guy the same as you dont like every girl.

Not everything that we do that feels good is BENEFICIAL.

been a gangster does not mean that its okay, or been a famous person does not mean its good or that we should follow their example.
Apparently mother nature does not see your point of view, why do you think its so?. since you people can't reproduce or serve no purpose, mother nature is trying to abolish your kind with HIV. WE all have mothers and we all serve a purpose is the scale of higher things, we are all related to each other, are you?

This is accurate, except for the HIV part. HIV is a virus created by US Army bactoriological warfare division. But Nature has time on its side, a simple stop to reproduction is more than enough.

Gays do not reproduce more gays, stupid head, gay people are made by straight people- usually, so "Mother Nature" is not trying to stop gays because we don't reporoduce. Also, the meds for HIV now allow most to live with HIV very long and healthy lives. As for "no purpose", well, like the original poster said, Da Vinci and actually Michelangelo, plus millions of others were gay who added a huge amount to society. Over population by straights is NOT really helping the planet, so if that's your only claim to "purpose", it's a weak one.

But, let me not hate. I believe we all have a purpose or we would not be alive. I have no problem with straight people even tho I find what they do in bed disgusting, and there's no reason why anyone should have a problem with me. Just live your life, try to be "purposeful", try to help and love and ADD to society instead of telling people they should die...

Your reading comprehension sucks. He said that gays wont be reproducing, not that they dont exist. School, stay in school.

I can\'t let this stand without a reply. Your retort made no sense at all, and my reading comprehension is excellent. Here is what your comrade in judgment said: \" since you people can\'t reproduce or serve no purpose, mother nature is trying to abolish your kind with HIV.\"

OK, funny you didn\'t notice any problems with his post, but whatever... First he says that because gays can\'t reproduce or \"serve no purpose\", Mother Nature is getting rid of gays using HIV as her weapon. Gays can\'t reproduce? Two men cannot make a child, but a gay man can get a woman pregnant, just like any other man, gay bi or straight. Many gay men HAVE sired children, and if it was necessary to populate the Earth and only gay men and gay women were around, they could and would make sure that the human race continued. Believe it. Also, gays are given birth by straight couples, gay men and women would create straight children and a minority of gay children, just like straight couples do. If Mother Nature thought gays served no purpose and wanted to kill them all, why would she allow them to be born in the first place? But the important thing is, Killing off gay men and women does not \"get rid\" of gays! They will continue to be born to straight couples, just like they always have been!

And saying gays \"serve no purpose\" is also an ignorant statement. Are you implying that the only purpose straights serve is by reproducing? Nothing else that humans do besides reproduction is useful to the human race, culture, and life? In that case we would all just be lying around reproducing and eating; there would be no reason to do anything else since nothing else serves any purpose.

But since that is not true, you have to see that all people do serve a purpose. Look at all the different jobs, services, social institutions and so much more that gays are responsible for. Teachers, artists, scientists, athletes, performers, mailmen, trashmen, doctors, lawyers, and so on. They don\'t serve \"no purpose\"? That\'s OK, you don\'t have to apologize... you just didn\'t think it through before you posted.

Oh so now your saying mother nature is trying to abolish gays? Wow you really are a dumb ***. Its people who are trying to wipe out gays, not mother nature. Seriously, sinking so low you blame mother nature? Ok now who is the real bundle of sticks?

Nah dude, it's natural logic, often refered to as "mother nature". We all know there is no real mother nature, it's just a personification of something that is out of human control. I hope you knew that too.

I'm 14 and bi sexual but i would say I'm more on the gay side but I can't tell anyone.... It really sucks I don't trust anyone not even my family so what do I do? Keep hiding it? It sure seems right to me but it ticks me off because every where I look it just says gay marriages is wrong... I'm like WTF what am i supposed to do ? And I know I'm of alone I have another freind that I know is gay and we spend time together in school and have a great time together yet nothing seems to get in his way... I envy him Soo much... Now I'm also an atheist so god is off the list its just society standing in the way.... 14 and confused. Can I get some advice

Hi . I totally respect ur problem . I think. U should try not to think about it 24*7 .. Try to pirsue ur hobby or hang out wid sumone u are comfortable . It wil help u .best wish :)

You maybe right.

I have just came out recently being a bi sexual woman myself. And I have felt this way all my life. I love and support gay marriage, relationships and all. There is nothing wrong with this and my family voted for Gay marriage in Maryland just this year, but my issue is that I don't think that they could ever see me that way because I have a little girl (2 years old) and to my parents, they question if it would be healthy to bring a child into an environment like that. I dont know how to feel about that. I believe personally that if a child is brought up in a home that is loving and attentive to the childs needs as far as a safe environment, etc. What kind of damage would it bring child? I dont know so confused

Being gay is not a bad thing. I understand what you mean about getting the bad reaction though. People are just so stupid. Why the heck does it matter? What you do with your life doesn't affect these people at all. Most people that I know and tell are pretty cool about it. I haven't lost any friends over it. I am sure that not everyone will react the same, but so far so good for me. Being gay doesn't change who you are one bit. You can still be a decent human being. These kind of people who don't understand that are not worth the time or effort. They are a pointless as life itself. It is to the point where if someone reacts negatively I will get in their face and be like "what!? you don't like that? then go the F on, I don't give a F about you!" It is sickening to me how some people can act. You are still the same awesome person you always were. Don't let them bother you in the slightest, or let them make you believe it is a bad thing. It isn't. Just be you.

Well I'm gay 2 , but I've tried 2 find some1 for years , it's impossible , I have morals and standards just like everyone else except no 1 seems 2 care about that anymore . It's all about how many people can we get with this week , hurting each other all the time etc . I wish I wus wrong about this but I get proved right every time , I had no idea it would b this hard , I'm 41 for godssake even the older more supposed 1s can't calm down enough 2 see its time for a change , if we want people 2 think well of us mayb it's time all of us need 2 learn how 2 act right , this world gets worse every day 2 even straight people are bad , I get invited 2 swing parties a lot , and it always shocks me at the depravity ev1 is capable of

I wish the world could label the fornicators like they label the gays and then we are will be in the same boat. No one pickets about that because the majority fornicates right...and oh Adultery that's a big one as well.. no one protest that either. lmao just t ryna put other's down when you look just as bad in the lords eyes

lmao being gay is def not a choice, but Fornicating is...It is all over the bible for u homophobes

Being Homosexual is wrong according to the bible, But I am a homosexual and have been for a long time. As a child I tried my hardest to suppress my feelings but I cannot sit here and say that I am attracted to men when I clearly am not. Sometime I ask myself if I had a choice to be straight and never like girls sure because I love God and I know he may not be the happiest with how I am, but then I have to ask myself did I ask to be here or feel how I feel about women...no..and I had no influence, I don't know anyone in my family who is gay and even when I did think about women in that way at age 3 and 6, and even in middle school I suppressed it and the shyt did not work because this is how the lord made me. Gay people don't kill millions of people, straight people do. There are plenty straight people who fornicate their *** off but refuse to acknowledge that, it is wrong..like your sin is somehow better than mines. Get your lives together people and worry about yourself. You are not in a gay person's shoes so you will never understand what we go through on a daily basis. How we feel on a daily basis. oh yeah and alot of animal have homosexual relationships. and Both my parents are straight and they made me, and Im gay...so I mean I always heard them talk bad about it and somehow I still ended up this way. I mean I dont know what people expect you to do. So I'm supposed to go be unhappy with a man and every time I have to have sex with him it feels like rape..that is the type of life that I am supposed to live...I don't think so. As long as I dont like men..ill be gay and just like as long as you dont like the same sex u will be straight that's just how it is, plain and simple. Stop fornicating and then come holla at us about how wrong we are..I dont see a straight person protesting that. Smh To be honest we all will be going to hell...if u wanna keep it funky.

being gay is a sin

Why you have to be so rude to him? Mind your oun biz.

You're not bad my friend they are, if they cannot respect you for who and what you are then basically '**** them" right? It is not a bad thing to be gay, and as I have said elsewhere when I am confronted with "its not normal is it"? my retort is well it is for me, I have been gay all my life so of course its normal!!!! Good luck and dont let the bastards grind you down

I'm Bi and I don't think its a bad thing at all. Liking people of the same sex is just who gay people are. They can't change it and I don't think they should want to at all. Its just a preference, it doesn't change who they are. Its the same as saying that someone is bad because they don't like something widely accepted, like coffee. Saying that being gay is bad is just plain wrong. My best friend growing up was gay and he was no different from any other guys I knew.

Even before i came to know that Da Vinci was gay and that i was gay I liked Da Vinci and always wanted to be creative like him.

The bible says marriage is between man and a woman. Man and woman are there for a reason. If god wanted a man and a man to be with each other then that would of happened but clearly not.

You misguided fool.... So you were there when he said this were you? No you read it in some book! A book so called written by whom? Bigoted man.... And as Stigzy says below if you think I woke up one day and said "**** this world Im going to **** off some misguided bigots and tell them Im gay" you are a bigger retard that you are showing now!

Unfortunately what happens when man and woman get together every now and then they produce a complete nonentity like your good self.. Maybe not being able to recreate in these circumstances is good

Honestly your confusion is justified. It's just a product of culture. Every group of people needs some kind of group to hate or marginalize. Gays are consistently a small group and counter-culture. Plus masculinity is always in question with gay guys in a culture like this. It's not that being gay is bad, it's just bad to be different.

I quite like it when homophobic people bring god and the bible into the debate because it just shows how stupid they actually are. Their only stand point on it, is "the bible says it's wrong, therefore god says it's wrong". I wish these people would just stop and think about what they are saying before making themselves look like the most unintelligent thick tards society has ever seen. Because, not to state the obvious, but the very same god that these homophobes believe in that preaches this utter b******* is the very same god that created homosexuality. I mean, if you believe god was the creator, then ask yourself who the f*** created homosexuals? <br />
<br />
If god gave us free will and the ability to do what we like. Then we can jolly well do what we like and what we want. If you don't like it then you need to take this up with the manufacturer, not the product. You should probably ask yourself or ask your god why you still praise and believe in such a being that created something you disagree with so much?!<br />
<br />
I need to point out btw, this coming from me, a gay guy with first hand experience of actually walking in these gay shoes. I didn't 'want' and I'm sure every other gay guy/girl will tell you the same. Why would anybody want to step into a world of being a possible outcast? To face continuous harassment, abuse and face a daily life of discrimination and the risk of not being accepted? I mean some of the homophobic comments on here are truly disgusting verging on being horrific. Any normal person would not wish this level of discrimination and abuse upon themselves. Yet some homophobic people argue that to be gay is a choice? Sure, I chose and wanted to face all of the latter, I love being emotionally hurt and tortured, I love being verbally abused, I love being discriminated against I thought it would be fun. To be gay is not a choice, and anybody that is not gay has no right what so ever to argue this point.<br />
<br />
Everybody has a right to love and anybody that attempts to take that away from somebody verbally or physically regardless of the reason is truthfully terrible as their own debauched justification for their horrific actions.<br />
<br />
Bring the bible (an authorless and therefore creditless book btw) and god into a debate, sure. But argue your point wisely, because as has happened with ALL religious sided comments so far on here, they are seriously contradictory, they make little sense and make the author of the comment look damn right dumb!

People don't understand that Gay is not bad just because there god says it is a bad thing.<br />
Its sad but true. <br />
You can't change them some say God say's i can be gay that's fliping the words. <br />
Want the truth ? I have looked at the bible and noticed it did say it's wrong and that anyone who didn't believe in him will go to hell this is the words i saw in a more understandible way. To be honest it could have just been that one bible. <br />
But who knows its ****** up the most you can do is say they are wrong and dont understand me also if you love god and see this to think of this: If god created me he should understand me and if he dosent understand me he should make himself gay.<br />
And if he makes himself gay he would understand but he cant do this so there you go he cant juge you if he don't understand you. :/ But as for me i dont care about god. <br />
I dont know if i believe in god. <br />
Whatever's what just think okay Im gay and?! Im a grate person!

wow . Lets go back in the ancient history. <br />
Im from greece and in the ancient times Men used to be the most beautiful race <br />
Women were the birth machines and homosexuality was actually legal. <br />
What does that mean ? it obviously means that Gay people were always there and always will be. <br />
The way that the society is built just made them <> and make us ''believe'' that all those years they were few and now they spread out like a desease. <br />
<br />
By the way when i said women were ''birth machines'' dnt get me wrong. i love women and i believe that they shud have same rights as men i just said how it was back at that time. <br />
I

being gay (im not) is not bad at all its just like love with a woman only with a guy wats the big deal? (im not gay)

Some people are just homophobic but If they get to know gays. They will find out that gays are fun.

O.K being gay is a choice and either you have low self esteem and you want people to feel bad that your gay or that you want attention. Second its just sick. Third that your little marriage will never feel right. Just be normal like everyone else and stop.

Being gay is a choice? Are you serious? You think I would chose to be gay? I want to be proud, have a wife, have kids... but I'm gay, so I can't. I don't need "attention" and I'd hate for someone to feel bad for me. You can't just "stop" being gay. You're evil and foolish - stop judging. You OBVIOUSLY aren't perfect either.

ditto....who in there right mind would choose Gay, we will always be considered lesser than by a good majority of people, including my family very sad indeed

But the upside of being straight I guess is having a child like you is it?? You are a bigot and I note not old enough probably to shave and understand what bullshit you are sprouting.... I am sure your parents are very proud!

Just chill out. Being gay is a gift.

Just chill out. Being gay is a gift.

You reaction would be very different in another country. In the USA the chruch has so much influence on federal, state and local laws their beliefs are push on everyone. If you were to look at Spain, a very catholic country, gay marrage is legal as it is in most other countrys in the world, except those that are muslum. Germany, France, Spain, Iceland and even the swiss think nothing of someone being gay. In every species on earth their are gay relationships its just in humans that we have religions that bully people about it.

I know how you feel just getting that look makes me want to punch them

I'm a Chinese and I had found none is a gay sinece I go to the univercity. Because people all around me are so sensitive about 'gay' thing. And all gays are hiding thereselves so that they can avoid the people to talk about these.<br />
As a Chinese, 90% of us won't come out.

gay is not wrong. If someone tells you that they are mistaken. Gay is a biological predetermined condition. You can't be wrong. You were born that way and you are biologically perfect !!!!!!!

I would never trade being gay for being straight. I love bring gay!!!!!!

You can't control who you're attracted to, so when you make fun of a person that is not heterosexual, it's like you're making fun of them because they have blue eyes. And like others said, if everyone was the same, you wouldn't be able to tell one person from another, and not only that, but the world would become very dull and boring. If you tell people that you're heterosexual when you're not, the next time a person that is a gender opposite you, you might look straight, but you won't get what you want, so when you go to have sex, the experience will not be pleasurable. It's just that most people don't see it that way, so they hide from the world and say that they're heterosexual. So, moral of the story: stay true to who you are, don't let anyone bring you down, and don't make fun of people that are not heterosexual.

I like being gay! I just dont get why there r homophobes. The're provably trying to cove up that tey r gay themselves. PS. Dont feel any pressure to come ou.

being gay is not wrong. i believe that, it is true, no one is born gay. we are made to find the same sex attractive by some of the earliest experiences in our lives. have you ever seen two kids at a park, playing together? two boy kids or two girls? have you seen the way they touch each other and get close to each other. this is early experimentation that we all go through. you could be the straightest person in the world, and i can almost promise you that you have had a moment like this. only some of us actually keep feelings of attraction for the same sex, others get over it. i am gay and i love men. i just have to say that being gay was not "created by the media", that had to be the most ignorant thing i have ever read in my sixteen years of life. Gay was around before the bible, people just didn't know what it was. that's the whole reason it's in that stupid bible, because "jesus" saw it and didn't like it because he was a dumb homophobe. okay, obviously, i'm an atheist and everything i'm saying is one sided, but everyone has to love and be loved. religion is the cause of all the world's problems. being gay is not wrong, because you're just being YOU, and being yourself is not wrong. being someone who follows the word of someone else and feels like they can pass judgement on people because of it is wrong. Also, i would like to add, if you are religious: do you like shrimp? most of you will say yes. well, it says in the bible that eating Shellfish is a sin. so eating shrimp is as sinful as being a flaming ******. so go wash out your mouths. but, before i get a lot of criticism, just remember: i am a gay atheist, who loves shrimp :)

People are born gay...It may have been a choice for you but it's not a choice for everyone. #ijs

I am a bisexual girl and in a relationship with a girl. I can honestly say that being gay does not mean you are wrong! I have two honophobics in my family. They can't except me or my girlfriend. I can't have my freedom, they shoot me down with horrible looks and horrible comments like im "sick", "wrong", "queer" or "******".. Why do people do that? Name calling, abuse of Any kind, it hurts!... Would a straight person in a relationship want us who are gay to say ts wrong or that they are wrong?!? Think not, yes I do think so soceitey has made gay more out there, more people know about it and yes some people try being gay, but people like myself we can't help who we are. We will not change for people who can't understand shy we are gay! We are no different from YOU.<br />
<br />
Together we stand<br />
Devided we fall!<br />
<br />
We will continue to fight for our rights the same as any straight person would! This world is so full of hate for people or things that are different.. But ask yourself this. What is right and what is normal? As long as there is haters, there will be people Fighting against it!

Love is love no matter who its with....its no different and since love is never wrong neither is being gay. Ppl think its wrong because its different then everything in the world should be wrong cause the world is full of different varieties

Love is love no matter who its with....its no different and since love is never wrong neither is being gay. Ppl think its wrong because its different then everything in the world should be wrong cause the world is full of different varieties

There is nothing wrong with being gay. Try and think about what the world would be like without these people: Motgomery Clift, Hadrian, Aristotle, Jean Marias, Rock Hudson, Eleanor Roosevelt, Walt Whitman, Ian McKellen, Elton John, Herman Melville, Michael Stipe, George Michael, Vincent van Gogh, Freddie Mercury, Michelagelo, Ellen DeGeneres, Ruby Rose, Drew Barrymore, Joan Jett, Neil Patrick Harris, Lance Bass, Ricky Martin etc. Clearly our world wouldn't be half as interesting as it is today without these people, but everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Some of my closest friends are gay, and I am a hardcore "Gay Is Ok" supporter :-)

being gay is wrong because in nature, it is unethical and unnatural. the main goal in life for all organisms is to breed, and have a so called "continuation" of their biological structure. being gay makes you unable to give birth, therefor, making it impossible for one to carry on those all so important traits, therefor, all gays are a form of useless life, a genetic defect in the human structure, and in order to cure this genetic defect, we must kill them. unless they are able to be cured from this mutation. if dog had a mutation that gave it and all its litter a severe case of rabies, what would you do, would you kill it so that its offspring wont infect others, or would you let it run around infecting others.<br />
<br />
socially, we are suppose to deal with this tragic mutation, but naturally, we are suppose to get rid of it

And look what happened when your parents got together and bred they produced you and what does the world gain a lowlife ignorant bigot, who is probably not old enough to feed himself and have a decent thing to say.

In fact your are probably a repressed homosexual yourself, having to sprout your pure filth to deflect from the fact you might be like me and mine!

I can assure you you worthless piece of ****, that I have more goodness in my body than you and all the backstabbing redneck scum you sliver out from, and if you really have such views I am sure there are some of our bretheren out there who would like to sit down in a dark room and continue this chat with them..

You sound like a nice boy I am sure you will make some women a nice retard

Kudoswaldott said that they had never heard of any animal have sex with an another animal of the same gender. Male bats have the highest rates of homosexuality of ANY Mammal. Bonobo monkeys do all the time, males will even have sex with the children and other males in their society, this is normal among most Mammals. We are the odd ones out for oppressing, I think.<br />
<br />
There has also been a recent study done (which I was looking for but found this instead), which states that homosexuality is an evolutionary adaptation that was always positive to our species. Gay couples can't create children, okay, but doesn't that leave more food for other families of 12 kids back when we were starting to evolve into what we are? <br />
<br />
As well, this same study looked at the brains of many straight and gay males and females of our species, to find that there are slight differences in the way the brain conveys information. It showed that people who are gay can usually react more quickly to changes in people ex<x>pressions, moods and social changes in a group of people. I don't exactly know how concrete this all is as of now, but the page I read had multiple sources for information and seemed professional.<br />
<br />
If anyone was wondering, I am in fact gay. I'm not very open at home about it, and I also don't think we should have all these "gay rights" things going on... I think we should be fighting for "Human rights". Fighting for gay rights only leads to more segregation in my opinion, but I wont stop anybody for fighting for gay rights alone.

There is nothing wrong with being gay. And even if there was, those homphobes shouldn't be allowed to take it away from us. The US is a free country, and if we can't be happy and gay, that violates the constitution. It clearly states that we are all entitled to the pursuit of happiness, and if being gay makes us happy, they can't take it away! I would like to see someone stupid enough to oppose the constitution

I mean really people where do we draw the line? I want to state first hand that I have several friends that are openly gay (both women and men) and I respect them equally as long as they act like a normal person and treat me with respect. I have no problems with homosexuals but it really makes no sense.<br />
<br />
If men were created with one reproductive organ and women with another and both are needed to reproduce what does that say? No offense intended towards gays but nobody was ever "made gay". Our society created homosexuality and its acceptance through the media. Civil rights are a good thing and people should always have a choice but now with all of the pro lgbt commercials and public speakers and such people that otherwise wouldn't be gay are now turning gay. Where do you stop with the open-mindedness? There has to be a point where things have gone too far. Is heroin or meth soon going to be accepted because marijuana is in the process of being legalized?<br />
<br />
Everyone in this day and age is constantly pushing things in the wrong direction. Instead of getting smarter we get dumber, instead of becoming stronger we become fatter. Instead of becoming move loving we become more hostile. Why do you think this is? Can you people not see what you are creating? When you push the norms so far you create problems. Problems that could theoretically end the world. What happens if/when homosexuals become 75% of the population and there is limited amounts of straight couples left to create new babies??? Homosexuality is NOT natural whatever you say or support. Does that mean homosexual people should be discriminated against? Hell NO!<br />
<br />
But please I would love to hear a gay persons explanation for where we draw the line with pushing the norms in society. The more accepted a general idea is the more it will spread. In that sense it is a disease. The more it spreads the more it will affect our world in a negative way. Not sure how people can argue this..

Just like we drew the Line at Fornication Huh? Dumb *** Get outta here.

I have read every comment here and it is a bunch of b.s. if every time we had sex it led to reproduction the world would be even more overpopulated than we are now do you really think GOD would want to see his greatest creation the earth destroyed by us just because we could not keep it in our pants why else would he make some of us straight and some not I don't mind religious discussions but when people use the word GOD to put down somebody else it is just plain wrong and when people say the bible says homosexuality is wrong how do they know what it says can they read arimeic or sumerian or hebrew these are the languages the bible was written in anything else is just a bad translation commissioned by people who want us to believe that they are telling the truth what is left of the true bible is locked up in the vaults at the vatican to protect the church from the truth so please give me a better arguement than GOD or the bible as to why it is wrong for me to be gay

woman's body compliments a man's body for sexual intercourse and for reproduction. It was made that way. Who made it that way? and if it wasn't made that way gay or straight wouldn't be here. Sex was made for reproduction. If the bees sudden get attracted to say flies instead of flower what would start happen to the plant . They would become extinct , the bee wouldn't be serving there purpose. I have never seen an animal having sex with the same sex. I have question my sexuality because as human we all have that little insecure voice in our head I have had strong feeling for a woman but everything in life boils down to my choice. Your choices to life determine your path

Just like Fornication...huh?

You know what I hate about moral debates? The word GOD is used in every religious person's argument. I respect your beliefs and all, but seriously, you shouldn't let this GOD figure tell you what to believe. For once, use your freaking brain, please! It's okay not to believe in homosexuality, we're all different and we have different opinions. But if you don't believe in it, at least give me a legitimate reason why. If you believe that all people should be able to reproduce, then good, go ahead and assert that, just don't come up to me and say "I'm Christian and I'll just say what GOD would say in this argument, ruining the rationality of our good world and reinforcing the right-wing conventional retardation that brought this argument upon society in the first place."

Im getting REALLY sick of people saying that being gay is unnatural, and that gay people can be 'cured'. You cant cure yourself of being gay, just like you cant cure yourself from being strait. All these racists are doing is making LGBT youth feel... terrible. They have no right, and i say they need to be stopped

Can they cure themselves from Sex before marriage..I think not...so they just as bad as any gay person. Sin is in the Sex not the love. If you running around having sex with any and everybody you looking just as bad in the lord's eyes as a homosexual if he really looked at us in a bad light.

im not gay, but some of my close friends are and they rock!(: gay people are less judgemental! live and let live i say<3 gay or straight

Liking guys or girls is the same as liking apple pie or carrots. I generally don't discriminate against people who enjoy the taste of squid just because I don't like it. Gay people and straight people are the same. Just as black people and hispanic people and asian people.

Okay, for all you RELIGIOUS freaks, ask yourself these questions:<br />
<br />
1) Where was this "God" on 9/11? Why didn't he save the 3,000 people killed?<br />
2) Why would "God" put diseases on the earth?<br />
3) Wouldn't "God" be stopping every single bullet going through someone's head?<br />
<br />
So, my answer is no, being gay is NOT anything bad. You are who you are, and if you don't like what someone's sexuality is, go **** yourself in the *** with a *****.

hey you know that just cuz someone is religious don't mean nothing cuz im religious and guess what im bisexual and also the answer to your questions is this
1: you don't know if god did save them cuz those ppl cold have been ill and need to be out of all of these pain
2: because there is a cause and effect on this planet
3: god makes things different for every person and that is there fate that he wanted to give them

*Sigh* the reason why GAY is Different from STRAIGHT is well gay people cant have babies with each other. I am a very strong catholic, i believe that it is a terrible thing living in a society today where people think being "Gay is ok." It was only rumors that Leonardo Da Vinci was gay, this maybe true... But it maybe not, you should not believe rumors untill they are realized as a true fact.<br />
Now, im probably going to get some haters saying god is not real... But just consider this, the human body is to complex to have happened by chance.. The way the earth revolves around the Sun is to complez to just happen by chance... How Gravity actually works is to complex for us to know the true understanding from it... Now remember this... I DONT HATE GAY PEOPLE, i just disagree with it. Now, for you being gay is ur choice, i will not condem you if you are. You asked why people Disagree with it and im giving you my honest opinion.

"you should not believe rumours until they are realized as a true fact"

One could argue you should not believe anything until it is realized as a true fact. With this then, I would like to point out the bible has no creditored author. If I was to cite the bible the same standard way as any scientific textbook, who would I cite?

I believe it is a terrible thing living in a society today where people think promoting hate and discrimination towards one of gods products is ok. Especially when this contradicts their own beliefs. Because to promote hate and discrimination and to say you think it is terrible is to commit a sin against your own belief by being derogatory towards a fellow human.

Yes and Fornication and Abomination go hand and hand...let's dislike it all if we are gonna feel that way. #ijs you doing the same thing I'm doing when you having sex before marriage and using condoms.

{{{HUGS}}}<br />
<br />
I know what you mean... sometimes when my wife (we are lesbians) and I hold hands or kiss in public I see people pulling their children away from us, as if our lesbianism were contagious. WTF?

Gays are just as wrong as straight ppl. Because there is not difference. Ppl talk about '' the gays'' like if its some kind of specie or a different kind of creatures. Its just a different way of living.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with being Gay. I'm not Gay, but I respect any and all people, Gay, Straight, or Lesbian as long as they uphold their part of making this world a good place. As long as they are a law abiding citizen, I completely respect them.

Haha. <br />
"like they are going to catch the gay from me"<br />
<br />
That made me laugh.

im all so gay and i think it is because god and they think it is rong and i have no ida why but that is hhow it is and you can not ask foe people to change and that is sad

its nasty because people aren ot supposed to be gay. this is not the way god intended for it to be or he woulda put the same sex of people on he earth. people need to think about this...

If god is real and he does not make mistakes then does it not make sense for some of us to be gay if we were all breeders wouldnt the world be more overpopulated than it already is just think about it

Rwshortie... If gay people were so bad why would god keep creating them?

OMG, yet another highly contradictory comment which shows nothing but pure lack of intelligence.

Analogy: What you preach is akin to you walking into a shop and purchasing a faulty can of coke and then promoting hate because the can of coke is faulty. How dumb is that?! If you have an issue take it up with the manufacturer that made the faulty product. What I'm saying is, in your jaded and foggy belief system, god is the ultimate creator. So this is clearly the way god intended it to be otherwise he wouldn't of created homosexuality and if you have issues with god's 'faulty' creations you need to take this up with god, the manufacturer.

And yet again...Fornication and plainly through out the bible but no one thinks this is wrong. Only because it's a straight thing huh..nobody protest that and thinks that's nasty. Yall think God is def good and ok with your fornication

STOP SAYING Christianity/Catholicism is homophobic.<br />
<br />
I am catholic, and bisexual, there is nothing wrong with it. <br />

i dont know why people think being gay is wrong. where im from, plenty of people are gay, its no big deal. but i remember when i was 12 visiting a city a couple hours away from my home. There was a man at a stand giving away flyers saying "Sexuality: 3 choices, only one correct." i was shocked and traumatized.

I'm no defending or offending here, Christianity and Catholicism are roots to homophobic nature. this does not make YOU as an individual homophobic, clearly you're bisexual. However, with religion comes stereotypes and with religion comes strict guidelines and practices. The bible, priests, most associated with Christianity and Catholocism preach that if you're gay you are scum, if you're gay you are doomed to hell.

I was Christian, I know this. I no longer associate with God or the bible because it demonized my sexuality. I am merely a human being who loves another woman, I am no less deserving of living a life of peace.

My point is, as much as you want to defend your religion, The Catholic church has done nothing but try to stop people from being gay, look at two of Harvey Milk's opponents, Briggs &amp; Anita, both Catholic and both wanted Gay men and women to be unable to teach in schools. Look at the man who killed Harvey Milk, a religious man. Just take a look at history, it has all the evidence a person would ever need to know that weas gay women or gay men are less than human.

Also, many peoples' religious scriptures are often interpreted in a way that poses queer folk as sinful and that sort of thinking usually balloons into scapegoating. Also many churches teach their congregations that being gay is a choice like say doing drugs or joining gangs and so if you hang out with druggies and gang members, chances are you will start joining in.<br />

Of course it's ridiculous to assume this, but what can you do but accept these people's beliefs? <br />
<br />
Generally it gets harder and harder to keep these erroneous ideologies when people actually MEET and make friends with GLBT people. I know lots of people who had a really skewed idea about gays and lesbians (that we're all child molesters and that we are all atheists and communists... also that gay women are always very butch and that gay men always very fem)- until they met me... although I -am- an atheist socialist lol!!<br />

Congratulations on leaving the closet behind. You've done your part in ensuring that future generations have a safe and accepting society.<br />

"If a bullet should enter my brain, let that bullet destroy every closet door in the country." - Harvey Milk, the first gay person to EVER hold office in the United States, who was assassinated by a fundamentalist Christian.

Man's Maker's Manual's forbidding homosex is on health grounds

Ask Jesus to forgive your sins &amp; to live in your heart as Lord &amp; Saviour

Many have found great blessing thru Exodus &amp; True Freedom Trust

Jesus, the son of god right? As in the son of the creator! The creator that made the stars, the creator that made the planets, the creator that made the sun, the creator that made earth, the creator that made mankind, the same creator then that must of made homosexuality because if god didn't create homosexuality in your belief system, who did? God was the ultimate creator in your belief system, god made man, so it was god ultimately who gave man the ability to be gay. Therefore from your foggy and jaded point of view, is it not god that should be asking for my forgiveness for creating me so wrong? From your point of view, it is god that screwed up for ultimately making me. It is god that needs to beg and grovel for forgiveness not I. For I am merely a product of god. God is the manufacturer and if you have an issue with somebody being a homosexual then you need to take this up with that manufacturer and not one of it's 'faulty' products.

Wise the hell up and educate yourself better before you preach your dreadful derailed hurtful comments for they make little sense. You need to re-evaluate what you believe in. Because your intentional hurtful comment in regards to committing a sin is not only irrelevant to somebody that is not religious but also a sin within itself. To be religious and believe in the bible is to follow its rules and guidelines. Not following the rules and guidelines is a sin and you have committed an awful sin by intentionally sinking the emotions of another and promoting hate. I propose that you practice what you preach; because it is you that needs to ask jesus to forgive your sins and not somebody that has done nothing wrong other than be a being created by the very creator you praise.

I'm not gay but I support gay.

No. I don't think being gay is terrible.
