Interesting read, and thank you to everyone, which ever "side" you are on for being civil.
Personally, I could not care less if one is gay/straight/bi/tri whatever, it is ther business, not mine. My place on earth does not ivolve judgement, that is saved for someone far more important than I.
When I was younger, I felt different. I threw around the barbs and insults. I didn't know anyone (or at least I thought I didn't) that was gay. Then I grew older and found out that I had friends and fraternity brothers who were gay and said, what difference does it make, its the same person.
I think many people have anti-homosexual feelings because of fear...fear of being associated with one (so that you become labled a fag, homo, etc), even fear of being "converted." I still remember my grandmother telling me to "watch for the homosexuals, they will try to get you."
In all honesty, what do we have to fear from a homosexual?
So, I say, to each thier own, it may not be my bag, but it has zero effect on me at the same time.
Nothing to see here. Please disperse.
