Trinidad-born Jessie Hanes, a gay, HIV-positive man living in New York who was granted asylum by a US court recently, would be pleasantly surprised to learn that HIV/AIDS patients in Trinidad and Tobago today, receive free medicine and are accepted both within their families and at the workplace, Beverly King, an HIV/AIDS social worker has said.

I support life. Let people be who they are, whether they are Goths, Emos, Lesbians, Gays, Heteros, etc. You seem to be of the opinion that gays go around recruiting. Just as Heteros have attraction, gays/lesbians do also. If the person being showed interest is not gay then they will not respond positively to the advances. If they do, no way are they straight, even if they want society to feel that. Caribbeaners, Blacks and so called Christians always have a problem with anything different. God said don't live in have 2 sons. Are u married? Are many others, do u make an issue of it? My point being if u think what Gays or anyone out of the norm is doing something different or unnatural, who the hell are you to tell them, when you yourself are doing something different. Pastors who open churches for material gain, who abuse little boys and girls, mothers who are obscene, fathers who go around having sex with Jane, Lisa and Harry.......... All doing something unnatural, cuz in the beginning it wasn't meant to be so. Mind your business, your life and your family. Mind your sins and your sons. As I said before, one of your sons might be gay, maybe I know you and your sons and I'm giving you a hint. Don't cast a stone at gays, you might be casting many at your son and pushing him further from you. Live and let live!!!! Allow people to execute their freedom of choice and expression as you would want to.
You are still missing my point, I am not interfering with the right of any gay person to suck, fuck or be sucked, fucked by one or several of his own kind or to otherwise make love with them. But I draw the line when a gay person makes approaches to a straight person, particularly a minor or even a young adult straight person and tries to seduce them into a homosexual act. I disagree with you when you say "If the person being showed interest is not gay then they will not respond positively to the advances. If they do, no way are they straight" That may be so if the person being approached is a mature adult, but not if it is a young person. And like it or not young straight people are usually the preferred target of the adult homosexual. On top of that you are assuming quite wrongly that young people are always in control of their emotions; you are ignoring the fact that sometimes a young person can or may be vulnerable at a particular point in time for any number of reasons and can fall for such advances particularly if made by an older, more experienced individual. In Trinidad and Tobago many straight young men in impecunious circumstances or in abusive home environments can and do surrender to homosexual predation simply out of desperation and the inability to otherwise survive. You cannot deny that fact.

As for my two sons - actually one is my natural born, the other we adopted at an early age - and the repeated suggestion made by many here that unknown to me, one or both may already be homosexual, I harbour no such doubt about either of them and I can literally put my head on a block where that is concerned.

I also believe in live and let live but that should not be construed as an open license for individuals, homosexual or heterosexual to prey on the vulnerable.

And again, I repeat the fundamental reason for my disapproval and rejection of homosexuality. It is simply unnatural. It goes against the established order of nature and the universe. Heterosexuality is the bedrock of society and civilization in general. Without heterosexuality mankind will cease to exist. Homosexuality plays no role in natures plan, not even in the animal kingdom. In a homosexual world all procreation will eventually cease and life in all forms will also eventually come to an end.

You have proven my point. Your post and its boasts confirm what I have said about homosexuals, at least your kind, the unrepentant kind. You people have a twisted, sick, perverted mentality. I think you are misinterpreting the attention you get from others. What you think is interest or attraction is probably nothing more than just plain scorn and contempt.
No they are interested they proposition me and buy me drinks. Just look around you , men on the whole are naturally social with each other-unlike women. Young "straight"guys actually volunteer an experience for money , I have seen it.
