A comment I came across:

"I'm just going to throw this out there.. and I don't give a rats azz either way. But the community says homosexuals are born gay, which means it's genetic. The gay lifestyle doesn't lend itself to procreation - two men or two women cannot procreate. So how did the "gay gene" not die off? Even if some gay people in the pre-invitro era faked the hetero lifestyle and had children, I'm sure it didn't happen at the same rate as heterosexual couples. I mean if all redheads stopped procreating, within a few hundred years we'd have no redheads. I don't get it.

Again, I don't care. But science would lead me to believe it's more environment than genetics."

Kinda has a point??? What you think?

The gay's are ok....as long as they 1) don't expect the Christian religions to observe their marriage 2) become entitlement oriented 3) start bombing and shooting up America 4) try to convert me or others....
I'm good with it!

Who cares? If that's how they get down and if that's what makes them happy, go for it. Personally, I think most of them just grow up being attracted and having feelings for the same sex. That's just who they're attracted to. But of course, there are definitely many who decide to change teams at some point in their life for whatever reasons. Either way, that's them. It's their life; I'm not going to judge them or tell them how to live it.

I honestly do not know what it is that causes one to be of the LGBT community... Are you born that way? Does it just happen? I do not have any answers, however I can share my story:
I am a lesbian female and have been with my girlfriend since my senior year of high school, that's when I realized that I was more sexually attracted to females... I was a virgin and had a few boyfriends (3) prior to my girlfriend but never really felt the desire to become sexually active with them... I for one had good morals and respected myself and my parents more than that, but it was also the fact that sexually I just wasn't all about it... I loved the guys that I called my boyfriends, but I think it was more of a close friendship love. When I first got feelings for my now, girlfriend, my heart would flutter and she would take my breath away. It was like everyone explained true love but I just knew it couldn't be because I was always told that being gay was wrong and it was a sin.. I was religious so I knew god wouldn't make me sin. After coming to the realization that this girl is the person that my heart chose to love I also realized that gay people cannot control their feelings, just as straight people can't control who they love. I can promise you, I wouldn't wish it on anyone to be gay... The constant hatred you undergo, the bullying and in acceptance... I promise it's not anything we would choose. I do, however, know that I would give anything and everything including my life, for my girlfriend (the same girl from 6 years ago, my senior year of high school) we have had our share of fights and disagreements... She's even been confused along the way, but the love that I have for her, that we have for each other at the end of the day whether we fight or not, is something that should be cherished... I am out, she is not because her family won't accept it... It's truly a sad thing for your family to turn on you in these uncontrollable situations.. I'm blessed that my family is so accepting and loving and chooses to love my girlfriend as family! Now you can all go on and say what you have to say about the LGBT community, however, please understand it is NOT a choice... It's so rough most people couldn't handle it... And that's why alot of people feel they cannot come out

Was she gay when u met her? Who woooed who? Did that affect your thoughts on sexuality? Like trying it? Have you tried being with a guy sexually?

Just questions....not judgement!

I totally understand your questioning, however, no she was not gay at all she had several boyfriends prior to this and she was sexually active with some, I haven't done much other than touch or kiss a guy, but I'm not sexually attracted to them at all I am not the type of lesbian that will be grossed out at the sight of a penis or freak out over the word... I just do not sexually want a man, some men are cute and attractive and I'm not afraid to say that however no man would benefit from me. I'm in my relationship for life, not many people these days remain faithful, I will no matter what tho. Just like straight people I just know what I want.. I mean in order to ask me if I'd ever sexually been with a man in order to know that I am not sexually attracted to them would be like asking the straight man if he's ever been with another man to know that he is in fact straight or woman with woman... I understand the question and don't take it to offense but do want to make my explanation and see if you understand where I'm coming from. Trust me, I'm one of the easiest people to get along with and just by looking at me and talking to me randomly you wouldn't know I am gay... I look like the typical blue jean comfortable girl, so your question won't be taken offensively, as a matter of fact I like being able to clarify my point; one day people may totally understand if they're like you and just ask questions and listen :)

And to answer the other question, no it wasn't the sexual relations that affected it, it was the simple gesture of looking into her eyes and being able to see her heart... Sex was not a factor in influencing me :)

So many of you want the government out of your wallets...why don't you take your own advice and get out of their bedrooms. What they do is their business. Don't like gay marriage? Then don't be a part of one.

After years of great debate with all professional sociologist, this is the best answer.
10% of the human population is completely heterosexual, 10% is homosexual, and 80% of humans can go either way depending on circumstances.
How about that for information to ponder on????
Whatever the case maybe, as long as it doesn't involve children are against one's free will, do what makes you happy!!!!

Thank you all for the nice words, it's good to see people that actually understand that it's not a choice, but something we chose to accept and live with... We just want the same as everyone else, to love and be loved honestly

All I can say is I feel there is nothing wrong with being gay! I have had the BEST of times with my gay friends and they don't judge anyone!

I don't choose to be straight. I just am. I don't want children and I'm not religious, yet I'm free to call myself married, even by extreme right Christians.

The "gays would die off if it were genetic" thing is one of the most absurd things I have ever read, though. Almost as absurd as "gay parents would cause their adopted children to be gay".

And if anyone wants to argue in favor of traditional marriage, you better start by supporting selling pre-teen girls to men in exchange for cattle. That's much more traditional than the notion of one man / one woman marrying for love.
