i got to know a "gay" homosexual person once. deeply troubled alcoholic to go with it.
i don't mind people disagreeing with me, but i am not ignorant, that is insulting to my views.
i could counter your statement by saying you are ignorant for thinking gay people are made that way.
but i'd be wasting my time, you are entitled to your opinion.
lets just agree to differ without resorting to insults.
Calling you ignorant is not an insult it is a statement of fact, being homosexual is not a choice, this is possibly why the erson you got to know was so depressed and the reason for the high suicide rate amongst the gay community. When I left home I moved into a shared house with 4 gay men, I was the only straight person in the house, although Rich was bisexual, all through my life I have had gay freinds (tried it once, not my cup of tea) and I can say for certain I know what makes gay people tick far better than you. I have the direct experience, you do not.
My freinds have told me almost to a man or woman that they knew they were gay from a young age, although for gay read 'different' as they had no handle to pin on it being so young. A client of my wife has just left his wife and children because he is unable to hide the fact that he is gay anymore, 'I cannot change what I am, and because I tried to I have ruined other peoples lives' were his exact words, he has suffered from depression and been a heavy drinker for years. When I asked him how he managed to father children he said 'I just thought of cocks'
As for becoming more 'popular' it's more correct to say more socially acceptable, what os socially unacceptable is irrational fears and prejudices. When we were living in Normandy, which is very very french and a very very backward region, where my wife has been spat at for having tattoos, a 14 year old boy was beaten so badly that he was left in a vegetative state, just for confiding to his best freind (a girl) that he was gay, this didn't occur at school this occurred in the local village and adults were involved as well as teenagers. In France the word for homosexual and paedophile are the same word.
This type of ignorance is only a couple of levels below yours Mr Jetman. I have presented my argument, could we hear your argument for 'homosexuality being a choice' please ?
