"They can CHOOSE to lay with whomever they want "
That's exactly my point. They chose. Not society.
Therefore, it is a personal decision that IMO, like all other personal decisions, should be kept just that. I don't need to know about, let alone accept someone else's lifestyle anymore than they need to accept anything about mine. You like Coke and I like Pepsi. You like Fruity Pebbles (pun not intended I swear), and I like Capn' Crunch. You drink Jack and I'm a Henny man. So?
Beyond your God given inalienable rights, the idea that someone HAS to be accepting of YOUR lifestyle decisions is throughly absurd.
Get over yourself.
"Do you have any idea how many gay kids KILL THEMSELVES because they are gay and are ashamed of themselves?"
Again dude, you're smarter than this. Kids also kill themselves because they get picked on for being skinny, fat, wearing glasses, ugly shoes and all kinds of other ridiculous crap. The point? Kids aren't the best equipped to deal with emotional stress. That has been true since the beginning of time. Homosexuality is hardly unique in that regard.
"The bottom line tho is that they have an attraction they can't control."
Who asking them to? I simply stated that they have a CHOICE in all this that does NOT need to be accepted by others. So, just like they made the choice to live their life in a certain way, they can choose to not give a damn what anyone thinks about it. Why is that so hard to understand? Furthermore, I'm going to have to ask you to cut it with these BS generalizations about gays.
Absent some published, peer-reviewed research good Doctor, I have to admit that I have serious doubts about the depth of your scientific abilities as it pertains to homosexuality.
"This crap you are saying is the PROBLEM "
Please. I have a gay brother (older) and sister (younger). My brother just kind of did his thing and no one asked questions. His CHOICE was always accepted in my family and it was never a problem. My sister on the other hand ("pretty princess" she is), felt it necessary to have a full blown press conference for her "coming out." Know what I said? I told her just what I'd tell anyone else. I don't look at you as my "gay sister"(or friend, co-worker, etc). I look at you as my sister; full stop. So, seeing her with another woman matters about as much as seeing one of my hetero brothers with a woman does. That is, I don't care.
They're living their lives and NEITHER case merits any kind special recognition. So when I say that most people (where I'm from at least) don't care until someone tries to make some kind of world altering event, I speak from personal experience.
"Ya know what tho....we don't get them anymore. Ya know why? People got over it."
I guarantee that you would have been much happier had you been focused on enjoying the time with your wife instead instead of what kind of looks you were getting. Though, I have to say that this captures my point perfectly.
If you're with the one you love, living life the way you see fit, nothing else should matter.
