Youth: Straight, LBGT or 'other'?

Apr 5, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: KRCR

Are younger people more likely to embrace their sexual identity? That's the implication of findings from a recent large Gallup survey.

More women identify as bi than men because men are afraid of the stigma of coming out about such feelings.

It's pretty obvious that in North American macho culture it's still pretty taboo for men to admit to being attracted to other men. Women on the other hand are not discouraged from having close female friends and having intimate public contact with them (hugging, kissing, sharing food, casual touching).

Fewer over age 65? Maybe there just aren't as many "LGBT's" that have lived that long. As for the young people thinking labels are too confining, they obviously want to leave their options open for whatever turns them on at the moment - young people without any moral boundaries are all. Pretty sad mess.

Mostly it stems from men thinking that penetrative intercourse (being on the receiving end) is something that happens to women. Men who engage in anal receptive intercourse are by extension feminized by the act. This is what a macho man cannot tolerate in the least. Gay men are then seen as femenine and as a traitor to the macho image by allowing themselves to be treated like a woman. I can tell you, those people have never met MY friends. Many of them are far more masculine than those little boys that are still afraid of being thought of as a sissy.

...says the pathetic bigot who has wasted her entire life in an Appalachian hick town and is now spending her sad and lonely declining years trolling gay forums looking for complete strangers to insult.

A pretty sad mess indeed.

Still putting down the gay people who live here, are you? BTW, I found that one gay guy who used to work in a drug store. He was actually a shift manager. I don't know what happened, but he is now working as a bus boy in a restaurant. I'll let you know if I find out he lives in a trailer.

I agree. I think that's been common knowledge for a long time.

One reason I think is because women don't have the whole "macho" b.s. thing tied up with being gay.

EXACTLY ! Women can get away doing that in public and most people don't think too much about it. Two women can just casually walk down a public street holding hands while going window-shopping, and most people don't immediately think "GAY" !

But if 2 guys do the same thing....

I agree with your analysis. Also, from my personal experience over teh past 30 years, I would say that about 1/3 of gay men, INCLUDING MYSELF, NEVER engage in anal receptive intercourse. BUT... also from my personal experience over teh past 30 years, I would say that about 99.99% of str8 men think that ALL gay men engage in that. It's just ignorance on their part.

In the past people didn't think two women were gay if they were holding hands, but having gay in our faces all the time is changing that.

A better question is why people are so concerned with how other people choose to label their own sexuality, or why anyone needs to label it at all.

We label everything that can be labelled because it organizes a very complex and confusing world into parts that make it easier to understand. It's our nature.

Is your hard drive organized ???

I'm not talking about why people label others. I'm talking about why people label themselves.

I think the Pet Shop Boys said it best: "Which do you choose, a hard or soft option?"

We label ourselves to give meaning to ourselves, and to identify us to other to, for one thing, identify commonalities. This is not rocket science. It's Real Life 101.

Jews and Muslims both worship Yahweh, but they're not going to go into each other's houses of worship. If you make reservations at a Japanese restaurant, it's a fair bet to say you're not ging to order pepperoni pizza. People in Irish bars don't order Italian wines.

And when you walk into a gay bar and see an attractive person but aren't sure if they're male or female, so you ask the bartender, you don't expect him to say: "That's no lady ! That's my wife !"

Just about everything that man candiscretely identify has been labeled. There are thousands of stars in the sky visibile to teh naked eye. Every one of them has a label.

Every place on earth has a label. Even if it's just a series of numerals, like 40 degrees north, 73 degrees west (locate THAT on Google Earth !:)) EVERY thing that man can label has been labeled so we can identify it, and understand it's relation to us.

It is our nature.(Just like deliberatey killing at least one member of any and all species of life we know or discover).

Agreed. Thanks for laying it out, Fa-Foxy. Even gay men don't like chaos. I remember when I came out in the 90s and coming across fellow gays who didn't like labels. However once you settle down in a relationship then you like everything neat and orderly. Gay men generally don't want to date bisexuals. Even many lesbians feel hostility toward the kind of women who could leave them for a man. Humans have been labeling things since the dawn of our existence in order to make sense of our universe. How ridiculous to complain about it. Basically it's anti-civilization.
