Hey, no one's been called a Nazi yet!

 

I kinda look like a nazi... well, a neo-nazi anyways. People sometimes mistake me for one.

Good points. Though I dont agree with the greeks and "pedophillia".

 

Pedophilia is the desire to have sex with pre-pubescents. While I'm sure that happened in Greek society, that wasnt what the organized relations were about. It was a cheap and efficient way to educate sons. It worked, and they seemed to think it was a good idea. For the most part. Morality is highly subjective.

 

Which is one of the problems with religions, dictating morality as an absolute value.

 

Just as some people feel uncomfortable about homosexual PDA, some people are also disgusted by heterosexual PDA, and much more strongly to religious expressions. None of those dislikes gives anyone the right to forbid that the other people do, however.

 

If you're interested, The Last of The Wine, by Mary Renault takes place in Athens I recall, and the main character is in one of the aforementioned relationships. Mary Renault's always worth reading.

 

EDIT: I also think it's fairly rediculous. I think all parades should be banned. Starting the Christmas and Easter.

 

The Christmas and easter parades can go, I dont really care. Parades have never been a special part of my life, so Id support the disbanding of them all.

 

heres some information of "Pederasty" (I guess thats what they called it) in Ancient Greece.

I try not to comment on something until I've had a chance to go over some source material. Already seen that page.

Technobob: The more people get out of the closet, the less easy it is to be a homophobe.

 

Well, it would apear to be so!

I came out to one of my friends, and he admitted he was {censored} as well!

After reading this entire topic... I've come to the conclusion that there are some amazingly ignorant, close-minded, and basically just plain obnoxious people on this forum. What a shame :(

yes, perhaps not a good example, considering you have been a member for just over week :)

Many people in America are homophobic because it is unusual, and because to straight people, even non-religious people, it is disgusting to see. I am straight, and I disagree with homosexuality, but I am no one to tell you what to do.

 

It has been found in the scientific community that there is a gene that increases a person's chance of being homosexual. If there is a gene that makes a person more likely to enjoy the taste of oranges better than apples, then it is almost the same thing. If you were born into a society that had never seen or heard of oranges, then you wouldn't know what it is like to taste an orange, and you wouldn't even have the desire to. If homosexuality were never introduced to society, then people that may have homosexual tendencies would likely never even think it as a possibility. My point is is that its society's problem to deal with.

 

And another thing, if you want to be {censored}, I can deal with it. But when you are flamboyantly {censored} and loud, you are simply trying to let everyone know, and thats not cool. Just be normal. Act like you did before you came out of the closet. Just because you are homosexual does not mean your voice has to sound different, or you have to act like a female.

Congrats Marvin.

 

Thanks

I have to say I was suprised - I had never suspected him and he never suspected me.

I have to say, if you do have considerate friends, coming out is worth it, you might get some pleasant suprises!

I can't see how people complain about lack of rights. Homosexuals aren't punished by the law in any degree. So, yes the marches are definitely unnecessary

 

not true

in our country, in almost every state, homosexuals cannot marry

they march so that they have legal rights to marry

 

yes, it sounds stupid, but thats america for u

I for one dont wanna get married. Though I wouldnt mind having a wife, as I really hate doing laundry and washing the dishes.

 

I'd even be willing to put out every year or so in exchange.

From what I have heard, America is suprisingly tollerant compared to the UK. Come out publicly here and run - fast! I've got a {censored} friend in VA (where ever that is!) and i amazed how open he can be and also how many {censored} 'friends' he has. I only know one other {censored} in my year - statistically, there should be about 14. They say that 7% of the population in the UK is homosexual, though i am a little scepticall....

isnt it like really hard for a {censored} person to come out?

 

It depends, I suppose. In a small, backward town of a Catholic country it must be a lot harder than in a large city in Northern Europe.

It's just something you do. Or you end up a bitter old man preaching hell fire and paying men to toss your salad.

im {censored}

 

It's easy as pie to come out on a forum where no one knows you.

But to family and friends, it's a completely different experience altogether

 

:rolleyes:
