Some homosexual men like to beat heterosexuals over the head (figuratively speaking) and call them intolerant and homophobic because they, the heterosexuals, find the idea of gay sex to be repulsive. You would think that these people could be a little more empathetic, given that they find the idea of heterosexual sex (at least with them as participants) as also being repulsive.

And lots of straight men like penises -- their own.

Nah, we aren't 'repulsed'; we simply don't give it a second thought - especially living in an area where it's common to see. No bias here; I don't give a second thought to straight men, gay men, or unattractive women either, lol.

That said, biology is attraction; it is not 'repulsion' (nor is psychological well-being).

This sort of dumb question because it's all related to how the animal kingdom works. Lions have harems they rarely share their females while the females are ok with competing for affection of the alpha male. That's why it's ingrained into the male DNA, if we weren't programmed that way we wouldn't be interested in females. We'll just hangout with guys and forget about women since women are actually not fun to be around with. The only reason guys enjoy being around with women so they can court them and have their affection.

And kinky.

Your reading comprehension is pretty sad.

Well that's just simply not true..

No... You obviously misinterpreted what he said to you based on your own biases. So do you have any actual training in psychology or just an "interest"?

I do believe men are more defensive about homosexuality than women. The comments about the confusion around LGBTQ designation is very legitimate. It seems that any person who does not consider themselves "straight", falls into one of the many categories of LGBTQ, this conglomerate keeps growing when in fact, these groups have almost nothing in common, except that they don't conform to society's historical perspective on sexuality so they all get lumped in together. Transsexuals have little to do with homosexuality, gay men and lesbian women have almost nothing in common and tend not to hang together and are often repulsed by each other, and pedophilia has nothing to do with homosexuality, it's a sexual attraction to children, and when children start to mature they lose that attraction, then there is the emerging concept of "fluidity" where one's sexuality is a day to day persuasion which I believe to be one of the most dangerous mindsets for a sense of well-being. And being sexually attracted to younger people is typical for both men and women, young people retain that youthful look, something we all yearn for, they are physically fit, their skin isn't sagging and wrinkled, they are highly sexual, and even smell differently so nothing to do with pedophilia. Sexuality is a spectrum, it's not black and white, many straight men have "bromances" with other men, they are close, they love each other, they may even be "touchy feely" (and there's nothing wrong with this, and it's very common in most of Europe and the Middle East) but that has nothing to do with flat out romantic intimacy between 2 men which typically defines homosexuality. Whether or not there's a biological component to sexuality remains to be seen, but I don't believe gay people make a "choice" to be gay, that's like saying heterosexual people make a choice to be heterosexual when maybe they could just choose to be homosexual, it doesn't work that way.

As a straight woman, I find homosexuality between men or women distasteful. My oldest son is gay and I don't even want to think about what him and his SO do in bed. But, of course I feel the same way about my straight son being with a woman.

I've never been attracted to another woman so it's hard for me to imagine being homosexual.

Back to the original topic. I do feel there is more "acceptance" of lesbians than there is gay men. I don't want to see any homosexual couples kissing on TV but it's less uncomfortable between two woman than two men.

They are very interesting. Could probably be published. He, unfortunately, died of AIDS at the height of the epidemic.
I can't believe you have a "background" in psychology, yet you think it's ok to base your conclusions about homosexuality on the thoughts and behaviors of ONE person you knew 30 years ago.

Maybe his dislike of women had nothing to do with him being gay but was just him being a jerk? You can't seriously think that one person should be the representative for a large group.

How often has "repulsion" been a smokescreen for "attraction"? Especially if all a certain senator claimed what he was doing at the urinal was taking a wide stance?
