Coming Out As Gay by danlev Coming Out As Gay by danlev
It's disturbing how few people are aware of facts like these.

As much as gay bashing and Christian bashing both irritate me, you've got to remember that things can be a hell of a lot worse.

someone being Christian is not a bad thing, unless they take it to an extreme level. So you have no right to tell him to shut up based off of his religion.

*sighs* the magic of Ctrl+c and Ctrl+v. Why do you hate Christians, exactly? And please, if you have ANY brain cells in your head at all, don't answer with "Shut up jesus-freak." Also, when did I tell you I was Christian?

If you give me a valid and non-biased reason, then yes, I will. Otherwise you'll just have to put up with me. And by the way, you didn't answer my question. Is that because you don't have an answer, and are afraid to admit that?

Maybe I've been emotionally and physically abused by christians all my life for not fitting into their definition of acceptable. Fuck off.

...and where I live, coming out as gay means everyone suddenly wanting to be your friend. I'm not gay, but I've seen it happen. Even if that person is a real jerk.

For some of us old folks: Gay is inseparable from men. Yes, I am inflexible at some instinctive level ground in by at least thirty years of experience. Bisexuals were Gay,  Lesbian, or curious and something beyond that was impossible. Years of polarity imposed on us has left me stuck.

I am easily confused when I haven't eaten. It is queer which I was talking about and art is often a very personal expression. I want to crawl in a hole.

I would not agree that killing is wrong for every situation. If I had in my hands the life of a pedophile, a rapist, a serial killer etc. I would not think of whether I want this man in our world a second time.

However killing a man simply for being a homosexual is wrong, in my opinion.

you have a point. For extreme cases like that, death would be excusable. But you're right, killing someone because of something that they can't control and does no harm to anyone is simply murdering the innocent.

This fact really scared me. I knew that you could be harmed one more level than one for being gay... but death? Isn't that taking it too far? I'm gay. I'm proud to be, even though I can't be fully open with it when my relatives visits and such. It really hurts... having to hear things like this.
Being gay is not a disease, it's not a crime, it's not unnatural. I say shame on the people who deny some people equality because they ain't straight! And they call us evil? who's the one who's evil here?

Even in supposed liberal Canada here, you can see homophobia raising iT's head now and then.

The Gov of Quebec started recently an ads campaign to fought homophobia (featuring romantic rather finally chaste gays and lesbians kisses), and well, you can guess how it went online.

Here in Belgium being gay isn't that horrible, I have a guy in our school that found out last year that he was gay. What happened?
There were made some friendly jokes about but everything ceeped the same! Non of his friends liked him less and nobody looked wierd at him.

I'm sorry for the people who don't live here and are gay, theres nothing wrong with it.

As a gay man, I'm forever grateful that I live in one of the many parts of the world that's mostly very laid back about this stuff, but even so, it's sad, horrible, disgusting facts like this that keep me up at night.

Homophobia pisses me off though, even if it's half the world away. To me it shows how moronic humanity can really be.

I hate that about this country... I really wish that people were more accepting. I'm not gay nor am I bi... but my best friend is gay, and is terrified of letting people know it because of what others might think. I know I'll be by his side though no matter what is thrown at him when he decides to come out.

Many gays in Asia marry women! Many try to get cured by having vaginal sex. The misunderstanding gets worse coz those heterosexually-married gay-in-denial caused the religious homophobes to think gays indeed can be "cured"!
