So you hang out at these restrooms to know this? If a man is looking for sex with another man he is Homosexual. Straight men do not look for sex with men, thats just a Homosexual fantasy.

To be fair, a lock that opens to any key is a bad lock, but a key that opens many locks is a good key. (And I say this as a female!)

All in all, men as species (yes, I said it) are generally more promiscuous than females. So it would only make sense that people would think gay males are overly promiscuous. However, in application, I see more promiscuity amongst my heterosexual friends over gay friends... and I see more promiscuity amongst my bisexual friends over my heterosexual friends.

You can't donate blood because of the AIDS issue. Not because you are a pervert.

I happen to believe that sex is meant to be with someone you actually love and i am deeply spiritual and believe that sex is not the main purpose in life. I do not LOOK DOWN on people who have sex with lots of people, i just think that we have different beliefs.

Yet for some reason i can't donate blood and i'm told that i'm a 'pervert' by people on discussion boards the very second i reveal that i'm gay and it's assumed that i have aids etc.

Then, they too will become statistics.

American scientist: gays die younger than smokers
by Staff Writer, PinkNews.co.uk for PinkNews.co.uk
4 April 2007, 10:59am
In Norway, married heterosexual men died at an average age of 77 and the 31 gay men at 52.
A study says that marriage for gay men and lesbians is more dangerous than smoking.

The Family Research Institute, a Colorado based think-tank well-known for their anti-gay views, studied same-sex marriages in Denmark and Norway.

It claims that engaging in “homosexual behaviour” reduces life span by up to 24 years.

In contrast, the lifespan of a smoker is only 7 years shorter than that of a non-smoker...........

I'd prefer to read the study itself - along with the documentation about how the statistics were gathered and such. From various documents I've read, the gentleman who performed the study has been numerously accused of being misleading with statistics and charged as academically dishonest.

I have never heard that gay people are promiscuous.
Donating blood has Nothing to do with them thinking you are promiscuous. It has to do with the way you have sex and the possible outcome from it that can be in your blood you are put in a high risk category. It is a Medical reason not a personal reason.

Of course he has. The reality is politics "taints" scientific research. The nllfs is an organization that published a study of the children of lesbian couples. Their findings were that lebian mothers are better mothers than heterosexual women. They concluded the children of lesbians are better adjusted than those raised by heterosexuals. What's more they concluded there are no issues whatsoever with lesbian raised children even in divorce. Remarkable. It was also reported "as fact" without any questioning of the data.

No one ever questioned this organization, it's researchers, it's fundings, nothing. At one point they had the research paper open on their website. It's well they no longer allow that because I read the research. It was a crappy study. To call this study junk science is something of an understatement. The control groups weren't matched for either educational attainment, social class, or region of country.

None of this was questioned because the mainstream media has already made up it's "collective mind" so to speak.

At least 40% of heterosexuals engage in those same high risk sexual behaviors. Why aren't heterosexuals forbidden from donating blood? Far more heterosexuals have promiscuous, unsafe sex, than gays, purely by population differences.

It's a medical reason based not the "way" one has sex but by how many times (promiscuouity) you have sex. You haven't heard anything about all the promiscuity in the gay community because of political correctness.
