although i find this thread fascinating, its like chewing a piece of gum and fast losing its flavour.
the fact is homosexuality has become very "popular" in the last few years.
i firmly believe being "gay" is a choice, the same as being "straight" is a choice.
saying someone gay was born that way, is like like saying someone was born to be a paedophile.
or can people be born peadophiles ?
can people be born evil murderers ?
i think not, but homosexuality has become acceptable by the masses.
even our prime minister is in favour (should secure another term in office)
anyway i digress.
my point being we are born as boy or girl.
but everyone has a choice in life, and its wrong to take away that choice.
i know i am in a minority with my beliefs.
but i respect everyone's view. so please have some respect for mine.
peace to all retrobikers.
Being gay is not a choice, do you actually know or have any contact whatsoever with gay people ? That statement comes from the deepest possible ignorance.
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.
Whether homosexuals are born as such or are homosexual by choice is not a matter of opinion. Current evidence much contradicts the latter case too. But to be honest, I don't even see a problem with homosexuality if it indeed was a choice. There is no victim here.
People opposing gay marriage because it infringes on their marriage is BS. Dare I argue no Muslim should be be able to obtain a civil marriage, since their beliefs are different from mine and that of the majority in my country and this would infringe on our marriages? If the same reasoning doesn't apply for Muslims, then why should it apply for homosexuals?
