  • If it is considered bullying for a creepy kid to call another kid “gay” when he is actually straight, isn’t it bullying for a gay kid to be told he’s “straight” when he is in fact gay?
  • How do all those bullies know that the one kid they pick on is gay before he has even made the “choice” to come out?
  • Why does it matter HOW someone becomes gay?  It clearly can’t be changed.  It seems to me that causation is only a relevant factor if you’re struggling to accept the concept of “gay”.
  • Supposedly it’s OK to be gay, just not to “act on it”: If I am straight and single, am I sinning by just holding hands, kissing and gazing longingly into a woman’s eyes? Does the same rule/boundary apply for gays?
  • Where does the line between gay/celibate end and gay/”in the lifestyle” begin?  Let’s say I know I’m gay but decide not to “act on it”…
    • Is it OK to be married to a woman?
    • Is it OK to be single, celibate and just friends with other guys?
    • Is it OK to live with another guy, celibate but in love with him?
    • Is it OK to gaze longingly at another dude?
    • What if alone watching a movie 2 guys held hands, is that “acting on it” and therefore sinning?
  • When someone talking about homosexuality refers to “gender confusion” I automatically know they have no idea what they are talking about.
  • Gay men don’t meet each other in airport bathrooms.  They don’t have to.  Repressed homosexuals masquerading as straight men do.
  • Why don’t the people who 30 years ago advocated that their followers marry in their own race also see that gays marrying other gays is better than gays marrying their daughters?
  • Subjects that religious folk don’t want discussed in schools still get discussed in schools. It is just not monitored. My guess is that it doesn’t get discussed at home at all in either case.  Things you don’t talk about openly with your kids are left to interpretation MORE than if they were discussed in school – even if that discussion goes against your “values.”
    • For example, I had a favorite teacher in high school who was in a lesbian relationship with a school counselor.  No way could they talk about it with us, but the kids talked about it among themselves…just not with our parents or other teachers.  Homosexuality wasn’t ever discussed in my home growing up, except perhaps in hushed tones among adults.
