An Observation

A thought that's been running through my head for some time.

It's just, well - on the whole Christian Fundamentalist "Homosexuality is a choice" thing. I understand the reasoning: The present translations of the bible identify homosexuality as a sin, therefore it must be a personal choice (God, being good, would theoretically not build people so they'd have to sin. There's a whole set of other discussions there, but, uh - moving on).

The fun thing is watching these people progress from there. If it's unnatural, and people do it, well, then, logically, it must have some kind of universal appeal. I mean, gay people (Excuse me, "followers of the gay lifestyle") can't be fundamentally different, since, again, dogma insists the desire can't be built in.

So one sees wonderful phrases like "The addictive nature of the gay lifestyle." Addictive nature? This would indicate that any human male would go for cock, given the choice. I beg to differ.

I'm about as far into the gay lifestyle as one can get without sucking dick. And I find there are some definite attractions to said lifestyle. I happen to like the arts. I happen to like holding conversations that aren't a series of grunts, clicks, and sports references. I tend to think hugging is a very good way to say hello.

But I have zero (zip, zilch, nada) interest in sex with a man. I've thought multiple times that I should reevaluate my position, and each time - nope. Just not what I'm into. And this is not the result of some kind of moral stance. Being gay would actually have made my life easier at multiple junctures. In many ways, it would make my life easier now. Yes, I know what kind of behavior one has to deal with. I've had to deal with it. The only thing I haven't had to do is come out to my parents.

Though that is one heck of a biggie.

Granted, I'm just one datapoint on a pretty big planet. However, one can also consider this: Studies apparently show that between 17% and 37% of American males experiment with homosexuality. However, at most 10% of the population is claimed to be gay. Apparently a fair number of the test subjects failed to develop an addiction...

It's late, and I hope this is relatively cogent, though it doesn't matter too much, since I'm mostly preaching to the choir, anyway.

Oh - and if you're a lesbian (Or bi woman) and feel ignored, well, you're theoretically scot-free. The people doing all the hate-mongering claim to be Christian. And the bible says nothing about lesbians. Nothing positive, nothing negative. So go forth and munch those rugs.

Wait - you mean you're getting shit from them anyway? Well the reasoning for that's fairly simple. It's not that they're Christians. It's simply that they're hate-filled scumbag bigots.
