Well I'm not gay, but not that I've got a problem with it, in fact, I think it's becoming quite common (forgive me if it sounds like I'm comparing it to a fashion trend) for people to be gay, what with legalised gay marriage over here in England and all that. I mean I watched a couple of talks shows the last 2 nights (Friday Night with Johnothan Ross, and Parkinson), and I was quite shocked to learn that Ian Mcellen (spelling?) was gay, aswell as a guest with Johnothan Ross who was Bisexual...I think I've also heard that Stephen Fry (QI game show U.K.) was gay...
I don't actually have any gay friends (or I do but just don't know), but I don't think it would particularly bother me if they were gay, however what would bother me, is if they started to actually (sorry for the horrible word, I can't find a better, more polite one) "inflict" their sexuality upon me, i.e. "making a move" on me, even though they knew I was not gay, although I am completely comfaortable with my hetrosexuality so I could go along with some childish flirting and innuendos etc.
But like I said before, there's a high number of people in the limelight who I've recently discovered to be gay, but it doesn't change my opinion on them whatsoever, I just see them as the higly respected individual that they are in their field of work.

I have no problem with it. I have SOME issue with gay people having children, for the sake of the child. I'm sure that they can get just as much love and support from gay parents as straight, but the discrimination the child grows up with is what makes me undecided.

3) How do you feel about discrimation of gays?

I think everyone enjoys a laugh at gay expense, and I know I have done, but its all in jest. If I was gay, I wouldn't take massive offence to small jokes etc [although I'm sure it gets tiring] but there is no need for hatred or real offensiveness.

I think it's just like any other thing, you have to be able to take a joke. I wear glasses, but I wouldn't go off my swede if someone said "Four Eyes" (mainly because its the most pathetic insult ever lol, but nevermind) and I wouldn't go mad if someone called me a bender one time, if I was gay.

But real hatred of gays offends me too.

The thing that ticks me off is like you said, when gay people feel the need to base everything in their life around the fact that they are gay. I'm not saying this applies to everyone, but when it does happen I find it extremely annoying.


I have this exact same opinion.

Hmm... It's a tough question. I think that "marriage" should be allowed only between a man and a women because technically gayness is against most religions. There should definately be a civil alternative though, so that they get the same rights as a husband-wife couples, have to get "divorced" etc.

I'm definately not homophobic

1)No
2)I don't agree with it however in the United States, if we really are the "land of the free" then why should people be restricted on who they can marry?
3)Discrimination isn't cool however gay people need to lighten up and not be on the defensive so much. They should be able to take jokes gracefully instead of just shouting "homophobe!" every chance they get.

Everybody knows gays are less intelligent and more prone to rape, so on that basis, we should definitley leave about 40 in a house with Noel Edmunds

Stereotypical. Gays are portrayed as stupid people throughout society, especially on TV. I have several bisexual and gay friends who are very intelligent and in no way act like the stereotypical gay person does.

No, it's a SCIENF-FACT that peopl with that imbalance of hormones cannot reach the same peak of intelligence. Parts of there brain are altered by the imbalance and energy is spent compensating for it, as opposed to thinking

But why should we go after a religion a lot of people doesn't have or support?...

Yeah, that's might not be fact, but that's what I think. So stfu.


Actually it goes back far longer then christanity. I beleave it goes farther then the judao religions aswell. So more then 10,000 years.

Edit: Forgot this things

1) Are you gay?
Im bisexual

2) Your stance on gay marriage?
Im all for it, or some kind of "union" as long as they have the same rights.

3) How do you feel about discrimation of gays?

Crock of ****. Gays, Bisexuals, monosexuals are really no diffrent from anyone else. They think, and breathe, and love. Were all human when you strip down the small diffrences. And humans all deserve the rights they work for. (Though if your a lazy drag who does ****, you deserve ****.)

1. nope
2. Yes because gay love was around before christianity warped marriage. Marriage was around in Roman and Greek times, it was around in the Egyptian times. Marriage is not a christian invention.
3. It annoys me. Small jokes are ok in my eyes because of the context, but actually hate/fear based discrimination annoys me.

1) I'm heterosexual.
2) I'm all for gay marriage; not allowing such isn't really justified by the whole "but teh Marriagez0rz z 2 Raze teh kiddies lol," as many people marry, and choose not to procreate.
3) Discrimination against homosexuals is just low; people fail to realize that it's just as wrong as racial descrimination. Of course, predjudice is scarcely recognized in its own time.

well then by that logic, black, asian, hispanic, indian, middle eastern people shouldn't be allowed to procreate or have custody of their own children because they're discriminated against in the US...

I, for one, get very annoyed at the whole sexuality discussion point. I see sexuality as a part of someone that isn't overly important and something that doesn't need to have countless controversities and taboos surrounding it. You fall in love with someone regardless of gender, sexuality isn't a factor. However, I do recognise that most people simply refer to sexuality, and I've no problem with homo or heterosexuality.

I would probably find it very difficult if I was homosexual myself though, with all the media and social aspects surrounding homosexuality I would find it hard to accept it, but that's me personally. i respect people who can be open about it, and whats more happy about it at the same time.
