Assuming I know nothing about hom.o.se.x.uali.ty and have no opinions on the matter, how would you explain it to me and what opinions would you tell me to have and why, keeping in mind that I am agnostic?
H.omos.exuality is when a guy likes a guy or a girl likes a girl. It developed a long time ago and while it isn't right, people have accepted it as normal. People shouldn't be bullied about it.....because they ARE still people, but at the same time, it isn't right that a lot of people get these feeling and give into it because people tell them to be proud of those feelings. A lot of people don't realize they're strong enough to resist these feelings and give in pretty quickly. People will tell you G.od hates these people, but He doesn't, He hates the sin of it, the act of it. It is possible to have those feeling as a Christian and simply not act on them, you aren't sinning if you don't give in.
I don't mean to be rude, but if you really don't know what h.omosexuality is, I have to assume you're very, very young (I'm 15 myself btw). In the eventuality that you are as young as I'm guessing you are, I really don't think you're mature enough to be entertaining thoughts and discussions on this subject.
However, it is completely probable that this is a hypothetical question and I'm being stupid.
In that eventuality, h.omosexuality is romantic feelings and relationships between two people of the same s.ex. That''s all I would say.
Hahaha. I'm 13, and I do know what hom.o.se.xu.ality is, I just want to see what happens when someone tries to explain it to someone who doesn't know and has no oppinions.
I figured something like that.
Haha, yep. Sorry to confuse! :P
Hom.ose.xuality is a se.xual preference. Instead of a boy liking a girl for instance, it would be a boy liking a boy or a girl liking a girl. There are some people out there that are very much against hom.ose.xuality, but I think that's just ignorant and cruel. You can't judge someone else if you can't see life from their point of view.
Well I see no point in explaining what homo.se.xual.ity is, considering others have explained it, xD.
I think what is really the issue is just people's views on it, most people (well except for most young children obviously) know what it is. Clearly, what causes issues is when people talk about reasons for/against it.
Also...Breece, you're only 15? that's surprising.
And as to my opinion, well I see absolutely nothing wrong with it, and dislike discrimination relating to it and discrimination/cruelty and such in general.
I would explane it as love and nothing more, its not different, its not weird, its plain and simple love
homose.xuality is se.x involving the hominid famiy of primates, including neatrathals, Cro Magnons, Java Man, and Peking Man. Seriously that the scientific name.
homosexuality is romantic feelings/sexual attraction to other members of the same sex. I have nothing against people who practice it as PEOPLE, but despite my personal temptation towards these behaviors I won't participate in them myself, because I'm a Christian and the God I worship tells me not to partcicpate. You may ask why I limit myself in this way based on what a God perched up in heaven looking down on me says. The answer you would receive: because He designed me and knows what's best for me, physically and emotionally. Likewise, it's never worked out badly for me when I was following His commands in a tempting situation.
If I were to explain h.om.os.exuality to someone with no previous knowledge, I would say:
- It is an attraction to someone of the same s.ex
- Its morality is disputed over. Research further yourself. Bear in mind that h.om.ose.xuality is a very minor issue compared to, say, if God is real and ought to be obeyed.
I would not explain any further.
I totally agree with sorla on this one. Took the words right out of my mouth!
Homosexuality is when two of the same gender are attracted to each other. In my opinion, there is nothing wrong with this. In fact, I have a theory that the amount of gay children being born with increase as the population increases and yadda yadda ya.
Anyways, as a non-believer in God or gods, I don't think that any of this is "sinful", which I think is just a terrible word to describe a person. No one is truly evil or bad. Judging someone by their sexual orientation is just as bad as judging them by the color of their skin.
Totally off topic, but is your username "ShinyHappyPeopleHoldingHands" a reference to the song by R.E.M?
'Cause I dig that song.
being a lesbian myself, I find it frustrating when people walk all over the lgbt community and think its ok. Its like what happened when african americans fought back and women started fighting back againest the system. if you think you learned from that, think again. its not the same thing but its pretty d.amn close.
AlmostNormal- finally somebody gets it. You have my utmost respect.
