    Default The orientation question!

    I don't really know if this belongs under here, because ideally I would probably put it under relationships/sexuality/etc that I can't see. But I figured that it had something to do with religion and I wanted to post it under here if so. I hope this isn't a duplicate. Again. I got thinking about this again while typing up what I think.

    Q: Do you think homosexuality is a bad thing?
    Excuse me, but does this smell like chloroform to you?

    I don't think it's either good or bad universally, but simply is. I feel pretty sure about this answer. Since I don't believe it's good, if I must pick then I must pick 'yes', by virtue of you designating it 'anything that isn't good' answer.

    ^ Agree with Shaunward. Isn't good or bad, just different. Has been awfully inconvenient personally, but there it is.

    I agree that it just is, in the sense that it's a desire that people can have. I don't think it's good to go into it though and act on it.

    I don't really know if it's wrong.. So I vote unsure.

    More like, it's not something for me to say. What I do know is that it should be encouraged as a right. People don't deserve persecution, psychological turmoil, or death because of it's perceived "wrong". I've rarely seen the anti-gay stance defended civilly, which is a greater wrong.

    Well, I too agree that it is not really a good or a bad thing (now, everyone being homo is completely not good for our race. Well, never mind. It is fine still, ignore that. That would create even more awkward divides, I imagine).

    Anyways, I know there are people who think it is specifically bad and I wanted to know why.

    The word? sure, seems to fail miserably to describe what it attempts to do. Go ahead, strike it from the record. Let Love flow freely

    It's a natural part of life. In some cultures, homosexuals and transgender people where considered good omens, revered as shamans. Schizophrenia was a gateway to the other world.

    Don't let the dogma of this particular time and place cloud your perceptions.

    Do you believe that taking the stairs instead of the elevator is right? Yes or No.

    See the insanity and pointlessness of that sort of question?

    I agree with what Shaunward, it just is.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?
