I think people hate gays because they can't relate.
As a man it's hard to believe another man can't be sexually interested in women, but at the same time I don't know why I'm sexually interested in women, I have no control over it. The same goes for them. Gays are attracted to the same sex because its how they are.
As long as I don't have some gay guy trying to hit on me, I don't care who is gay and who isn't. And gays are usually careful about who they hit on so again it doesn't matter if someone is gay.
Why does it matter if it's a choice or not? I mean jeez. Let people be gay.
Ho Moe SEX! Nope its still not right.
Being gay is inherently unintentional and bad. It goes all against of what nature intended, and the thing about gay genes is all quackery. I mean really, your asshole is for exiting, not entering. I don't know how the hell that isn't obvious. If you're gay, then there is seriously something wrong with you because it should be obvious that opposites attract and it works the same way with humans

What pisses me off is how often people refer to things as 'gay'.
Sorry to jump in at a odd place in the conversation, but on behalf of Christians who actually do know the Bible and accept it's teachings, I'm sorry how much the Christian worldview has been distorted into being wholly anti-gay, when it should be wholly loving and wholly accepting. Yeah.
It's obviously pretty inevitable in a thread on the subject of homosexuality, but it happens in threads about completely unrelated things as well.
But how it is bad? In what way does it go against all of what nature intended. (Homosexuality is natural and occurs in a number of species. Read "Biological Exuberance: Animal Homosexuality and Natural Diversity" by the Canadian biologist Bruce Bagemihl.)
You fail to point out in what way gay genes are quackery. Theoretically it could be a recessive gene, right?
"Your asshole is for exiting, not entering." Yes. But when you don't have a vagina, you have to resort to the second best, right? There are also different forms of sex, such as fellatio.
As for opposites attract. Again, you provide no argument for me to respond to, really.
If only human sexuality were as simple as fridge magnets, eh?
I don't really mind gays, but I wouldn't be able to not be slightly uncomfortable around, say a group of them
Here's something to think about.
You're in a room with, say 10 other random people. You're all getting on ok for several minutes, then a chance remark leads to all the other people revealing that they are gay.
What is your reaction?
Let the gays be gay. They dont cause any problems in society unlike some other groups in society so i dont see why their behaviour is so frowned upon.
I expect the only problem you have, is that because you don't know many (or any?) gay people, you're subconsciously hanging onto stereotypes. I expect you wouldn't really have a problem with a group of homosexuals in real life.
That's just a guess though, I'm not a psychiatrist.
I'm okay with women as long as the unattractive ones don't hit on me. Know what I mean guys?
im more annoyed by girls than guys most of the time
please straight people keep all of the annoying wenches to yourselves thanks
Well that's easy seeing that they're both humans. Dunno how many times I have to go over the fact that you can be a pedophile and not molest kids, and that believing all pedophiles do so is incredibly hateful.
It's either this or the biological/scientific explanation. I'm open to either one.
I'm gay, and I'll be honest - I feel uncomfortable around a group of people that I have no grounds to relate to, or that I see as being slightly awkward to be around. Such as a bunch of gangster-loving kids at school, or a group of people at uni who literally sit around and loudly play games with their alienware laptops in the lounge all day vs. going to or studying for classes.
It has everything to do with giving you the feeling that you don't belong in an enviornment or social group, and not much to do with the fact that they are gay. That's where the awkard feeling comes from. It's just the social steriotype that gays have that makes it seem like you are feeling that way twoards a group of gay guys only because they are gay.
There are tons of people out there who grow up with totally different personality types and enviornments yet are gay too. It really depends on how your brain ends up wiring itself when you grow up, and if your personality type or personality quirks are receptive to homosexual tendencies or not.
I like to think of us as nature's way of balancing out the population I like the idea that I won't be contributing to a higher population on a crowded earth. Some animals actually have that capability you know - wolves are known to produce litters of only one or two pups in years where there is scarce food due to overpopulation.
I forsee in the future, when attitudes towards homosexuality have lightened up (i.e. gay marriage is legal in all states, adoption not frowned upon, etc.), that there'll be some new debate on whether gays/lesbians should be allowed to produce children. Of course, this will be in an era when technology permits this. Discuss.
