I'm Gay...and I Hate It
I am a 16 year old who is secretly gay. The religion I belong to, and firmly believe in, says homosexuality is wrong, yet I'm gay. I don't want to be, and I feel as though there is something wrong with me. I have been blessed with an unusual amount of intelligence and a good education, but I would give it all away to get rid of my gayness. My parents philosophy is basically leave the homosexuals alone, and don't ever say anything negative to them, just know that such a way of life is wrong. My mother is under the impression that there must be something wrong in their DNA, a genetic problem, and I have to agree, because if it was a choice, I wouldn't be gay.
