My ex couldn't understand why I wouldn't be bi because he found it so hot for two women to be together. Okay...YOU find it hot and therefore I should be bi? What sense does that make?

"It's really tough when someone takes a close minded approach to any discussion."
So, because I am convinced in my views and do not accept yours, I am close minded. You are equally convinced of your views and do not accept mine...does this not make you close minded as well?

"I bet he doesn't like Tila Tequila...LOL."
I have never met her, so I can't judge whether or not I like her. Based on the persona she portrays on the show, I wouldn't go out for coffee with her, no. Not because of her sexual orientation, but because...well, have ya seen the show?

Is he shooting up gay bars?

---->Not yet!

Is he openly bigotted to others who don't agree with him?


--->Yeah, but the atmosphere in my office is "loose". Not a big deal.

That makes 90% not. So if gay is THE way then what about the 90% who aren't? What are we? Wrong?


---->Does anyone have to be wrong or right? I just don't think abnormal is the right term for it. Unusual? yes. Abnormal? I hate to think of homosex uality as a human abnormality. KWIM? If my kids are gay, I don't think of them as having some abnormality.

"I just don't think abnormal is the right term for it."

Abnormal mean "different from the norm". If 90% of people are straight, that makes the other 10% abnormal, statistically speaking. Again, purely in statistical and socialogical terms, these 10% are deviant. Now, I understand the negative connotation with the word "deviant", and will not use it in everyday language. Sociologically and statistically speaking, I am deviant, since single moms are a minority group.

Just because you consider one choice better than another, doesn't mean it's right. You have your opinion, I have mine. I am against it. Why is it that I am considered judgmental for being against gay marriage or the gay life style in general, but you're NOT judgmental for telling me how wrong MY views are? So, we're both judgmental...but it's okay for you to be that way, and not for me? And yet *I* am the one who gets lectures about being narrowminded and not accepting of people's freedoms? Interesting how that works
++++++++

Hope you aren't talking to me because I never said you were wrong to feel the way you feel. Everyone is entitled to feel the way they want to.

Personally, homosexuality grosses me out. But just because I don't "like" it, doesn't mean I have a right to force others live in a way that feels "right" to me.

I also don't like really religious people. They freak me out. So can I pass a law forbidding people to be overly religious, because I don't like it???

I also don't like morbidly obese people. I feel like they should put the fork down and walk away from the table. So, since I don't like it, can I pass a law giving them fewer rights than the less obese?

I also don't like stupid people. So can I pass a law limiting the rights of people under a certain IQ?

I also don't like people who don't like animals. Can I pass a law forbidding them from receiving the same benefits as animal lovers?

and so on... :)

Couples unable to have kids naturally due to fertility issues are also in the minority. So should they be forbidden to marry since they can't have children naturally?

"Hope you aren't talking to me because I never said you were wrong to feel the way you feel. "

Yes and no; I used your statement as a springboard, but didn't necessarily reply to you specifically.

"Couples unable to have kids naturally due to fertility issues are also in the minority. So should they be forbidden to marry since they can't have children naturally? "

I did not say this. My point was that, statistically and sociologically speaking, and minority group is "abnormal" and "deviant". So yes, if couples unable to conceive are a minority group, they are "abnormal" and "deviant". My faith tells me that marriage is to be between a man and a woman. If the couple you speak of meet those criteria, their marriage does not conflict with my faith.

It is one thing to be opposed to gay marriage for whatever reasons you might have. Its a whole other thing to be repulsed by gay men and express it venehmently and hatefully, IMO. Everyone is entitled to their opinions.

I just can't figure out how gay marriage hurts anyone. Abnormal, normal, whatever. Who is it hurting?
