I was asked in an email about my opinions of homosexuality, so I thought that this would be a good topic for a post.
It’s Fine… Seriously.
Am I gay? Certainly not, no way. I am one of those guys that cringes when I see two guys kissing. When surfing the web, on my occasional search for interesting porn that does not bore me to tears, when I have accidentally stumbled into a site that has gay porn, I cannot find the “X” to close the window, or the Back button fast enough. But that is just me and my own issues with it… I cannot see guy on guy action as interesting… woman on woman is different, so I suppose that makes me a bit of a hypocrite.
But moving on.
It reality, I cannot understand the lifestyle, I cannot see what would cause a man to like another man in any “love interest” sort of way. I mean yeah, I loved a few men in my life. My father, my brother, a couple buddies that were like brothers to me. But not in the “Other” sense. But why should I have to understand it?
Love is love… when two people love one another, who cares what sex they are. I have loved a few women in my life, really loved them and then just loved their bodies. But just because I cannot grasp the meaning of gay/homosexual/transgendered love, does not make it any less real , does it? And if you bring religion into it, I have a really hard time believing that God is so caught up in peoples sex lives that he or she would fail to look at the good that they have accomplished in their NON-sexual lives.
I think that people should be the same. If some guy or gal, who happens to be a doctor and invents a cure that saves hundreds or thousands of lives, happens to be gay, and they inevitably meet their maker, I cannot and will not believe that God, or whatever gods may be, would turn them away on the fact that they are not heterosexual.
It is my sincerest hope that if any of you reading this happen to be of the LGBT society, you have taken no offense to what I have written. It was not meant in that way. While you will not see me in any parades, I do feel for your plight. Maybe one day people will stop and think.
