I have a pretty big family and several friends and in-laws that might as well be family. I don't have kids, but I have five cats who think they're kids. I have a silly (and sometimes off-color) sense of humor. I'm a Christian so I'll try not to be nasty or use bad language in my posts, but I'm not making any promises, View all posts by theprozacqueen

    First she says that Gay Pride celebrations are unnecessary because being gay is so widely accepted now. Then she goes on to say that no one would ever choose to be gay because they would be subject to ridicule and scorn. So which side of this message is to be agreed with?

      On the original post, she responded to one of your comments saying that she felt that being gay *should* be widely-accepted (more than it is, anyway) because it’s not something someone *chooses* to be-that it makes no sense whatsoever to beat somebody over the head about something they can’t control. This is what I understood and agreed with…judging from some conversations I’ve had with gay friends/relatives before they’ve come out, they torture themselves over wanting to be “normal” (their words) and try all manner of things to make themselves straight, but it doesn’t work because that’s not how they’re wired. When they live in ultra-religious areas like where I grew up, the issues can multiply threefold or more. Why would someone put themselves through all that if being “normal” was a matter of choice? They wouldn’t. That’s how I heard her, anyway. I’m straight and there’s no way I could choose to be anything else. Same for everyone else I know.

      Have a good night.
