It isn't near as bad as being born with transsexualism in the Black community, and how they might lump you with perverts who attempt to mate members of the same sex.

No, I am neither TS nor Black, but I know of some who are.

People are born the wrong sex or with the wrong genitals, but they are not born with the urge to misuse the genitals for non-procreative purposes. They are not born with a penis in their mouth nor anus. Such behaviors serve no valid purpose, and are certainly unsanitary.

Ironically, BP treat men who chose gay or transgendered behavior much better than NORMAL women born wronly with male parts instead of female parts. At least TS women attempt to destroy their parts and become normal straight women - often very religious, Conservative, and traditional or even nonsexual. But gay men use the wrong parts for what they do and pervert the use of their own parts. They see every opening as something to degrade by putting their penis into.

Can you prove that ALL non-gay humans never use their genitals for sexual purposes unless they are actively trying to procreate?

I've never heard such a thing.

Do you have some valid studies and statistics to link?

That is a red herring. Straight sex serves a purpose, gay sex does not. Straight sex can create new life, but gay sex is ALWAYS about perversion. Yes, some straight people pervert themselves, pervert sexuality, and sin in this fashion, but it is no excuse for others to do it too, or for others to be fully in existence only for those reasons.

Do you have a links fetish or something? I have the right to discuss MY opinion and give my objections to your filthy lifestyle. I have a right to live where people are smart enough and have enough self-control to NEVER commit gay sex no matter what. Every thing I say is MY own opinion no matter how I word it, and only stupid people, snobs, and people with weak minds have a need to quote others.

Gay sex is every bit as immoral as rape, murder, abortion, lying, robbery, child abuse, etc., and there is no good person alive who does any of the above. A person who falls into gay sex and commits such evil isn't necessarily really gay, but may have just fallen into a weak moment.

Please think for yourself and not follow group think, the party line, and self-serving establishment lies. You just hate normalcy and free speech.

Actually you are Black though you are an "Aunt Tom" to the highest degree.

You want to be a White Rush Limbaugh but you will have to settle for being a self hating Black, Christian conservative hypocrite.

You are attempting to debate a nut who even denies her own race and complexion.

She has a tendency to project her Christian conservative ideology when she says things like "Libs do not believe in freedom of speech ".

We all know she is simply projecting , either way she is a loon.

Where did I say I hated at all? I am not bigoted. Gay behavior is every bit as immoral as raping kids. Nobody is born gay, and nobody has to be gay. In fact, gayness is a human-invented social construct. I have great respect and love for all the people trapped in the gay lifestyle, and my heart's desire is that they will grow up, take responsibility, and do what it takes to avoid these chosen, defiling behaviors. My heart hurts for ALL the slaves of this lifestyle, and my wish is for them to heal on the inside. Desiring to choose gayness and deliberately choosing a lifestyle that causes others to hate you comes from inner brokenness, and that inner hunger and pain can be fixed. They reason this battle is escalating is that they have been brainwashed and exploited into thinking it is the only way, and then once they get there, rather than admit they were in error, they double up their efforts and fight even harder, even blame those who say it is wrong for the lack of feelings and results they are looking for in a gay lifestyle.

Gayness kills. In the places that promote gayness in schools and have legalized gay marriages and the strictest anti-"homophobia" laws have the HIGHEST suicide rates. It is not bigotry that causes that, but choosing this dead-end lifestyle and being groomed into it.

You can either love the 90% or hate the 90% by loving the bad things that the 10% remaining do and protecting those bad things. I love everyone, but if I must take a side, it is for the larger group, their health, and their sanity. But I refuse to take a side. The gay-militants and the violent homophobes are both in the wrong, and society should tolerate neither. There should be no tolerance for gay behavior, bullying behavior, nor violence of ANY kind regardless of who is doing it. It is not about hate, but about right and wrong, with people doing right (hetero acts or no sex ever) getting rewarded, and wrong-doers (anyone who cannot resit their urges to commit gay acts) getting punished. You can just stop it, and I mean that in the utmost spirit of love. Sodomizing one another is an act of hate and disease, not love. Sure, you can protect your body from disease with a piece of latex, but you cannot protect your heart from the damage and the guilt that such liaisons inevitably cause.

I own my race, and that is White, and I am fairly pale. I have NO Black ancestors. I am proud of my Scottish, Irish, Dutch, and German ancestry. Both my mother and father were completely white. So there is nothing to deny nor be ashamed of.

I never said I was Christian anywhere. Even if I was, that is not your business, and you have no right to use it as a weapon. It is correct that liberals hate free speech. I speak from experience. Liberals have immorally interrupted me when I needed to vent many of times. I vent to avoid becoming hateful or doing bad things, yet the libs WANT us to become hateful so they can drive those of us with traditional values extinct.

I am projecting nothing, but teaching, venting, and sharing. But leave it to a liberal to twist such noble things into lunacy and hate. They are full of hate or they would be incapable of seeing it in others. In addition, your kink like to psychologically abuse others by accusing them or projection when they say things that you don't want to hear or which cramp the bad behaviors your CHOOSE to do. Everyone is born into a superior state, but choose by their actions throughout life to lose their status. Each time a man puts another man's body parts in his body, he is permanently losing a part of himself and permanently lowering his station in life. It doesn't matter how it feels. I imagine murder might feel good, but I will do whatever it takes to never do it. Sodomy and child rape are the same. They should be avoided at any cost, no matter how that makes you feel. You are worth more than your sexuality - a LOT more than you can imagine. So why give yourself over to something and deny the entire rest of your being?

Thank you. But the proselytes of Satan are surely in here trying to stifle our free speech against this immoral, disgusting behavior. We are told to pray for our enemies.

No, I am a White female, so guess again. Someone in the forums started the lie that I was Black in order to discredit me, or they confuse me with a another poster who rarely posts and claimed to be Black (among other colors). They had pics up of nearly every race.

I never once put my own pic in my avatar. And this is the ONLY profile I have ever used no matter what the liars on here say.

I was born into White culture, but you could learn to adopt it and make something of yourself and become someone.

PS., the term you meant to use is Aunt Nellie. I am not even Black and know your history more than you do.

And Rush? Puhlease! I am a bleeding heart in comparison to him, and an online political test calls me libertarian-centrist.

Sheesh. First you claim to not be bigoted, but you sure prove otherwise in your next sentence. You have NO "respect and love" for anyone who is GLBTQI.

>... Desiring to choose gayness and deliberately choosing a lifestyle that causes others to hate you comes from inner brokenness, and that inner hunger and pain can be fixed....<

Nobody "chooses" to be glbt. One is BORN glbt. Please trash your paul cameron garbage, along with "dr" dobson junk, and get the true FACTS.

>...Gayness kills. In the places that promote gayness in schools and have legalized gay marriages and the strictest anti-"homophobia" laws have the HIGHEST suicide rates. It is not bigotry that causes that, but choosing this dead-end lifestyle and being groomed into it....<

Again, you are completely wrong.

>... I love everyone...<

No,you don't. If you really do, you will quit the anti-gay garbage.

>...There should be no tolerance for gay behavior,...<

Your homework assignment is to look up and write a single-space page on each of the following people: Bayard Rustin, Alexander the Great, Sir John Gielgud, Peter the Great, Walt Whitman, Michaelangelo, King James I, President James Buchanan, Leonard Bernstein, Gertrude Stein, Alice B. Toklas, Raymond Burr etc. Guess what? They were all GAY and contributed greatly to our world.

By the way, I love my wife, dearly. We are a happily-married lesbian FAMILY, and we just celebrated our fifth wedding anniversary two months ago. Work on your own relationships, and keep your nose out of others'.

I'm white, and I find that statement to be EXTREMELY offensive. You really could use counselling for your attitude.

Please look up the following people: PRESIDENT Obama, Booker T. Washington, Frederick Douglass, Crispus Attucks, Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, The Tuskegee Airmen, George Washington Carver, Benjamin Braddock, Charles Drew, MD, Bessie Smith, Josephine Baker, Marian Anderson, Paul Winfield, Ruby Dee, the Delany family of North Carolina, Morgan Freeman, Sidney Poitier, Harry Belafonte, the 54th Massachusetts Infantry, Mary McLeod Bethune, Madame CJ Walker and countless other African-Americans that you should attempt to emulate, instead of claiming that one could "adopt White culture and 'make something of yourself'".

Wrong AGAIN. Being GLBT is not a crime. Molestation, however, IS.
