Reminds me of an old movie, Stalag 17 maybe, William Holden, Peter Graves.<quoted text>
Is that based on your personal experience in prison? I have no idea what role straight men would take in such situations nor whether the role would be consistent across sexual encounters.
So it's possible for one who is gay, to be gay, as in happy, with someone of the opposite sex.One's behavior is always a choice. To whom you're attracted isn't. Sexual orientation is about attraction, not behavior. One can choose to behave congruently with one's orientation or not It's a common mistake to conflate sexual orientation with sexual behavior.
Agreed.Yes, he made a choice that is typically made by heterosexual rather than homosexual men.
Josh, considering the tolerance for homosexuality today, could have chosen another path, Little Terry. No, it's it the first time, but clearly, it is unusually unique. Here's an openly self described gay man married to a woman, and have children with her, and he's happy. Odds are there are others, as well as self described lesbian women, married to men. There are even women who once identified as lesbians, no longer do so, and have married men and formed families.The fact many gays in the past married and the came out of the closet after years of marriage already demonstrated that, small Peter. You make it sound like Josh is the first time that's occurred; it's not. In the past, the pressure to conform to societal expectations combined with employment consequences and criminal prosecution (among other threats) played the same role as religion did for Josh.
Those pesky modern sexual identity labels again.The difference now is gays expect to be able to live their lives openly in congruence with their sexual orientation just as straight people have always done.
Is it possible, that those that do "mimic straight behavior", odd you would use such wording considering your desire for same sex marriage, which would indicate you too wish to mimic, place less emphasis on their orientation and more on their want for family, including fathering children, or giving birth to children with the respective mother or father?If a gay person decides to mimic straight behavior at least now they can do so for personal reasons rather than as a result of state sanctioned coercion/threats to their freedom, safety, livelihood or dignity (at least for the most part).
