Yes, it's everyone's favorite topic, subject to change. We all have to deal with it though. Some of us (cough) will admit to being gay, while others in society are too afraid to deal with their feelings lest they be abandoned.

Anyway, how do you all feel about it, and what's it mean to you? I'm just reviving a thread from the old forum, and to start that off, here's my favorite quote that I took a picture of before it was the Forum's time.


Exponentially,
Grant with an "R"

Hate we can't see the picture, Grant.

My thinking...

may I be in this world and leave this world not questioning a person's lifestyle, but knowing what is and was in their heart.

Good luck on this thread.

Cheers Mugs!

But how much of the thoughts, actions, emotions, energy, etc, are really guided by Humanity's heart as a whole? For each individual? If we're all one big heart, it's most certainly a broken one. This post-modern world seems to be one more of Mind than of Heart, not that that's a good thing.

Hmmmm I'm blaberring. But I think there's a point there. :twisted: :?: :roll: 8) :p

Yes, Jason, there is a point there. No, not that it is a good thing, but it is a reality. My thoughts, actions, energy, etc. may not guide "the" world, but they guide mine. For that I am thankful.

Just thoughts of an old hippy still wishing for the "love" movement to take hold. :wink:

Yeah, whenever possible I put on the rose colored glasses. 'Cause when I look at the real world I am consumed by an overwhelming sadness. Again, that's just me.

I could not care less what anyone else's sexual orientation is. We are all humans in this world and we need tolerance and acceptance of people's sexual freedom.

My favorite response to the gay marriage debate was a male comedian who said "how do I feel about the gay marriage issue? Hell, who do they think they ARE? Of COURSE they should get married - and be as miserable as the rest of us!"

Peace,
J

That's an extraordinary post, Wendy. If we could all just DO that, be open about our own stories, whether they are about our sexuality, or our opinions, or our illnesses....we offer the rest of the world a chance to see that THEY are not alone.

"the only gay person in Amersterdam" lol..that says it all. ANd that is the tragedy, for any of us, making our way in this world. When there is shame and fear (and families who abuse us by rejecting WHO we are), then we hide and then no one else can see that their own stories are so similiar.

None of us...regardless of our sexuality, is the "only anything" and we need to know that. And we need to be interested in each other, not condemning of anything that doesn't fit with our own experience.

VERY cool post, W. Very cool

Peace,

i remember someone made a similar topic & i said something that wasn't even really offensive and things got blown way out of proportion.

I have no problems with gay people, however i won't lie, if i was around gay males i probably won't feel comfortable, not because i would be afraid that they might try to " hit on me" i just KNOW i would be uncomfortable cuz i have been around gay people before. If people are gay, than they are gay, and thats the way it is. Its just something people have to accept. As long as they aren't hurting anyone by it, than its ok in my book.

I personally can't understand how a male can be fully gay, because i mean women are just so beautiful & in my opinion " God's" gift to us males. I can however understand how a female may be a lesbian, because girls are like i said beautiful and well alot of us guys are dogs.

Hey you asked

but yeah if your gay, your gay

Peace

Yes congrats Wendy that really was an extroardinary post,

Your dad, sad to say, seems like a villian in an evil movie... I still don't seem to understand how someone could have such an extreme reaction to their child's sexuality. Unless, I guess, he's a very very conservative, reputable Christian or something.

But you've survived a lot through him. For that you should be proud.
