I think that I am going to have this thread closed. This kind of dialogue is not what I intended.

God, someone always has to come along and ruin it for everyone else, just to prove how high and mighty they are. So pathetic.

You are thinking sexually. Like I said just because you find someone attractive doesn't mean you want have sex with them. Men can find other men attractive, handsome, cute what ever you want to call it and it doesn't have to mean anything sexual.

repulsion or fear is all the same idea or concept. You are turned off by gays. End of story.

huh? that is only one person out of the thousands of other gay people who say otherwise. If you arn't gay or like what they say, then don't associate with them.

I'm sorry, but being gay is definitely more "choice" than "defect". People are built and wired to be heterosexual. As far as I'm concerned, nobody really needs to be gay... for example, if a guy is attracted to guys, there are women out there who are more guy-ish than most guys... the "gay" guys could go for those ladies and it'd be effectively the same gig. (If the big deal is that ladies don't have the same "equipment" that men do, there are adult toy stores to help with that.)

To stay on topic, the truth is that straight people can recognize attractiveness in both sexes and not be any less straight. When one person flirts with someone of the same gender, that's not exactly "straight".

Truthfully, I don't think most straight men can, or are even willing to, divorce their sexuality from the attractiveness factor. They're incapable of recognizing the difference between them. I think it has a lot to do with the male ego, how men are viewed in society.

a manly woman would really turn me off. LOL. Seriously that sounds disgusting.

(Don't believe me? It'll all be sorted out eventually. I'll hedge my bets on what God says... because God is bigger and more powerful than mere people with ultra-modern mentalities who want to permit anything.)

I had a friend in college who turned gay during his college years, and he knew it was wrong so he made sure that he never acted on homosexual impulses. I can only hope that he eventually found himself a "manly woman" to be with, as we lost touch after college.

People have choices to do what's right and choices to do what's wrong. Unfortunately, the "wrong" choices frequently tend to look the most attractive. If I'm on a diet, that pepperoni pizza would taste unimaginably delicious... but I'd have to choose to do the right thing and go with the salad instead. At least that'd be fine by me if it were a grilled chicken Caesar salad.
