Juat a thought here....but...ever wonder why some people care sooo much about gays getting married?

As a straight male, I can honestly say I do not care even a little bit, and it has amazed me that some are so up in arms.  

But I think I have it figured out.  The key is that I am a straight male.  Never had to make that "decision" that all of the people who say being gay is a choice must obviously have to make.  I figure the ones who are soooo up tight about this must have a lot of inner turmoil going on about their sexuality.  They seem to have a lot of repressed homosexuality they fight to keep down.  That explains why they think it is a choice.  They have homosexual urges, but choose not to act on them.  Then they see guys who do act and it pisses them off.  They figure if they can't have it, then neither should anyone else.

At least I understand now why they keep insisting that homosexuality is a choice.  For these guys, it is a choice.  Be gay or be straight.  They have BOTH urges.  I suppose a little compassion should be in order for these people.  It must be terrible to have to supress what must be deep seated urges...and wake up every day and have to choose not to yeild.

The idea of sexuality being a choice originally comes from Christianity, Far Right Wing Christians say sexuality is a choice because it gives more meaning to it being sinful, admitting to it being a genetic trait means that The Bible is saying that it is wrong to be what you're born as.

Of course, augermc, I agree with you on the whole inner turmoil thing, the reason why people have these so called "Straight Camps" and other programs is because people beleive so strongly that their sexuality can be changed, they get the Placebo effect, which makes people think their sexuality has been changed, even though this more often than not causes phychological harm.

The main reasons I've noticed from personal observance people don't like Homosexuals, males in particular, is because:

1. They are afraid Homosexuals will hit on them, and maybe even touch them in their privates.

2. Their religion, in particularly Christianity, is offended by them.

3. They find the idea of homosexual intimacy disturbing.

These are the main points I have found causing hatred towards homosexuals, that's from personal experience through talking to others.

The reason why people have these views comes down to lack of education and teaching of being open-minded.
