Germans in the 19th century "invented" the modern gay rights movement, a Maryland historian argues.
Robert Beachy, from Goucher College in Baltimore, writes in The Journal of Modern History that modern conceptions of homosexuality can be traced to an anti-sodomy law, according a news release. The law gave rise to "the world's most expansive science of homosexuality," Beachy writes, which in turn produced a new "understanding of erotic same-sex attraction as a fundamental element of the individual's biological or psychological makeup."
This new perspective was advanced by German doctors publishing case studies of homosexuals in the 1850s and popularized by books and encyclopedias.
Beachy's article, The German Invention of Homosexuality, summarized his forthcoming book, Gay Berlin: Birthplace of a Modern Identity, which is due out next year.
There were people "hiding the do-henry" in greece or rome---if there were people having sex---their were gay people.

I know this is a difficult concept for you, but that's what science does. The first man or woman to identify a previously unknown species of plant (or insect/marine life/weather pattern, etc.) gets to name it. With me so far?

So, if something exists (already exists, I try to clarify things as much as possible for you) and it doesn't have a name, then it gets a name and is studied, quantified so to speak. It's much easier to research a thing or concept instead of saying whatchamajiggy or doohickey. Still with me?

You may be left handed and I am right handed, you may prefer women to men (sexual attraction), I prefer men to women. It's something that is an inborn trait, you don't choose it, you are just that way like many other genetic influences.

Say, for example you injure your left hand and have to learn to use your right hand. You can do it, but it will never be natural. You may become proficient with your "off" hand, but your brain will not change the way you are wired. It will learn to adapt.

BTW, that's why reparation therapy and trying to pray away the gay never works, because it isn't natural. I've know a lot of gay men who've been with women and lesbian women who've tried to have a sexual relationship with a man. As one gay man said, "It's like washing your hands, you do it and get it over with." If your sex life wasn't satisfactory you would look for something that really floats your boat. I know I would......and so would you.

Narcotic's CHANGE one's sexuality--So can STD infection or transmission- Some of the females are scared to death to have sex with a man-because of std infection--and after std infection sex with the opposite sex can entail a felony charge if not a life sentence or "put to sleep" by a errant cop--like Jack the Ripper.

Debra--your not going to believe this---but the most common deadly std right now--is Oral HPV---if you look at the back of people's throat--(tell them your looking for strep throat) and you'll see the hpv forming on the back of their throat--etc. from oral sex(blow jobs-oral vaginal etc.)-which shows up on the sex organs 3 months-2 years after infection----BUT, french kissing with this on the back of your throat---is a infection transmission --and once you have this on the back of your throat--AND THEY KNOW PRETTY MUCH or sex organs---hetro sex pretty much ends-unless your super using and spread--but most find gay sex partners and go "gay"---which is pretty much what is happening in the lesbian community in California.

I've seen you and Rose on here a long, long time. You're both spot on. I got a new computer and lost my old account. Rizzo and Anal are just common trolls, the only difference I can see is one is registered and the other is not.
Rizzo's an old school, old salt that couldn't change his ways if he tried, I'm talking calcified.
Anal is so scattered, it just doesn't seem worth the trouble of figuring him out.
We can learn from them, there are people that ignorant out there and we can also learn how we don't want to act. Now let them rave and rant some more ;0)

Rizzo has supported same sex marriage since the beginning. If that's calcified, you and Poof need to get calcified toots. Because I support marriage freedom for all consenting adults and you and Poof don't.

DebraE is a nut case '' I've know a lot of gay men who've been with women and lesbian women who've tried to have a sexual relationship with a man''.

Oh really have you known a lot. DebraE you are so full of shit. Try being realistic.

No---"Gay Marriage" is a PRIMARILY a entity of the std/drug epidemic--its too expensive and America can not afford gay marriage in more ways than one.
