Public opinion on gays and lesbians.

Also. I don't think being Gay is "fun".
Getting treated differently just for holding a man's hand, or exerting female behaviors has only made my life more difficult etc. etc. etc.
I don't think that having an alternative sexuality has made my life any better. In fact, it has only made it harder for me.

I'm not going to lie to myself though. I've tried dating women, and there is always something missing.
I love women as people, and as friends. However, my love never exceeds that.
When I'm with a man everything falls into place, and makes sense.
I could never pretend to be straight ever again, and by being open and true to my sexuality, it has made me love myself.

Not relevant to glbt at all, but: Why do girls have to be used in pornos?
Girls have got some very nice bodies! But why can't we use girls' naked bodies for their elegancy? Why must they be used sexually?

It is because the general population is straight.
The female nude appeals to them, and it always has. If you look back into the early periods/eras of history, art/culture reflects this (in large contextual genres).
It would be uncommon for modern society to not idolize the female nude in a sexual manner such as pornographic material. It's really not a great thing. However, these women and men elect to perform these sexual acts for whatever reason.
It is to suffice the market of people who want something to visually fantasize with.
(Men are more aroused by images and sounds; women are more aroused by the written word)
This is why there is more there is more visual porn for men, and more erotic literature for women.

:wave:basicspaces, I see what you're saying....

I think still in this day, men in the overall culture of the world are considered "more important" and therefore what they do that may not match to expected societal behavior, is scrutinized more. This includes loving/being attracted to another person ID'ing as male in their community.

Am really glad for you that you have found love for yourself - for your own person....unless one does that, I think one is going to find true love for anyone else very difficult.

I agree with you wholeheartedly.

Being different than the average guy has caused me some trouble, but I'd rather be true to myself and happy, than lying to the world and myself and being miserable. So It's nice to have that confidence in myself. :)

It is a difficult task to find love for oneself, and especially difficult to find love in another person. I'm single, however I'm not complaining. I'm just waiting for the right guy to come along I guess :P (My momma always told me: "if you look for someone you're only going to find trouble")

I get it now. I look at girls and see their grace, not their sexual appeal. However, about 95% of the world thinks differently.
But I'm me, so I let other people have their opinions.

Xen, are you bicurious? lol

Honestly, sexuality is a human thing --- whatever form it may take. What's the big deal? A lot of people are ignorant and fearful about things that haven't been part of their childhood programming, and I commend you for asking this about the gays to the best of your abilities.
