I have absolutely no problem with homosexuals. In my mind homosexuality isn't wrong at all, even if some people believe it. It's not unnatural, it's just the way a person is. I've always seen the conflict surrounding homosexuality being that people don't understand the fact that it's not a choice, it's a part of someone that they can't change no matter what, just like the color of their skin.
I'm an extremely tolerant person, so not only do I not have issues with homosexuals, but I also don't have too much of an issue with someone who says that it is wrong to be homosexual. It's always that person having some problem with me. People try to say it's wrong to be homosexual, but isn't it just as wrong to dislike a whole group of people, and then judge one person on either media sterotypes, or what people say if you've never met them? That's just something I don't understand.
As for marriage, homosexuals don't want the religious aspect, they want the legal part of it, the part where they get money and benefits from being married to someone else. So gay marriage isn't going against a religion because it isn't trying to force it's opinion onto the religion. Gay marriage isn't even affecting religion in hte grand scheme of things, so religion should be no issue in the idea of gay marriage.
And for a side note: *goes into rant mode*
Women are alright with me.. but its wrong if guys are homo, beause they just freak me out.. because I'm just used to seeing men as a strong person.. not like feminin (as in way too feminin) .. some gays are not feminin but it still creeps me out.
No, just no. It's both or neither you have to accept. That's the only thing that crosses the border with me. Just because you get off at looking at two women going at it, and I'm sure people only like it if the two women are hot, doesn't make it right. I think it'd be pretty hot to see two guys in a relationship but does that make it right? In most people's eyes, and in modern society, no it doesn't. And just because something freaks you out doesn't make it wrong. I get freaked out by horror movies, they honestly freak me out, but that doesn't stop people from making them, does it?
And on the feminine part, when homosexuality finally started to be recognized as something other than a mental illness, around the times AIDS struck, a lot of gay guys started to buff up, and I mean really buff up, and those were the strong men. They did this to show that they couldn't have AIDS and that they could be just as strong.
And why do "regular" gays creep you out? You said the only reason they creep you out is because they are feminine, but what if their not? Being gay isn't something you can just look at someone and just know, did you know that's how Hitler started in about the Jews, and in America with the communists? You honestly can't just rely on sterotypical stuff to identify gays now-a-days, especially with the whole metro thing that's happening.
So give more reason as to why your creeped out, and you've already mentioned the bible.
And for anyone who opposes homosexuality, I would like to see a definate reason that isn't based in the bible, because some of us may not recognize the bible as our religious text. We all know that arguement, so I'd like to hear something intelligent
