Gays and lesbians are normal people just like the rest of us. They are sexually attracted to members of the same sex instead of the opposite. So what? Gay guys will not hit on straight guys (unless they don't know they're straight, or maybe if they're drunk) because they know they won't reciprocate. They're not interfering with anyone else's sex life. Why not give them equal rights?

Also, homosexuality is not a mental illness--it's a natural thing. It happens in animals as well as humans.

I do not want to be critical about people but I will express my real feelings.
I think that they are sick in mind.I will never support them


Because you are the moral center of the universe? Everything YOU feel everyone else also has to feel? You represent normality, others should adjust to your normality?

It is a common misconception among people, especially in developing countries (but your are supposed to be a Greek), that there is a single, normal and universal kind of love or sexuality. THIS IS NOT SO. To think so, and to express such sentiments, is uneducated and foolish.

You and others who use terms like "sick", "despicable" and "immoral" or whatever will look like medieval people to all of us who do have the knowledge. You will look as backwards and retarded as most Chinese who oppose pornography on grounds that it is "immoral", while the Japanese and Hongkongese will appear more normal to us (it obviously hasn't hurt them).

To judge people by your own emotions is wrong. That is what causes so much misery in the world.

It is a common misconce ...

You may be right.Who can judge ?This is my personal point of view about them  and I confess that I feel sorry  for my feelings .I may be cruel.
The thing that I don't agree with you and the supporters of them is the fact that you want to present this homosexuality as something well accepted from society and normal.
So what do you suggest?
When we fill in papers and we are asked about our sex what do you suggest.Should these papers mention one more option for homosexuals?

eg  sex?male ,female ,homosexual?
What do you hint?
Come on the sexes are two not three.Let's be against  this social corruption
I really    love China,半个 中国 人

There are two genders (normally)--male and female. It doesn't ask "With whom do you prefer to sleep?" Sexuality doesn't change your gender. Of course, what would you say about hermaphrodites--people born with both male and female genitalia, or something like that?

Why do you think society shouldn't accept gays? For quite some time in America, non-white people were seen as lesser people, much in the way gays/lesbians have been recently. We're getting over that, though. Times change; societies evolve to be more tolerant.

If you are male, you fill in male. If you are female, you fill in female. If you are transsexual, you fill in whatever sex you were born with.

Your sexual ORIENTATION is not your sex; it is usually not asked for, and if it is you should ignore it, because it is your personal matter.

Let's be against  this social corruption


Homosexuality (bisexuality etc.) is nothing new; it has always existed. It has been silently accepted in most cultures thorugh all times. In some cultures (for instance the ancient GREEK and Roman), it was publicly accepted. Homosexuality is abhorred in Christianity (and derivatives like Islam), and also in Neo-Confuciansm/Buddhism, which is why it has been repressed for so long time. What we see now is a normalization, not a corruption.

Again, you cannot use your personal emotions to judge people. People in the past have used such personal emotions to discriminate against people who are different in some regard. 100 years ago it was widely held that blacks (or "colored" people in general) are inferior to white people. Do you subscribe to this view? Probably not, because you know better.

It is the same with sexual orientations.

I personally don't like male homosexuality, because it is not MY preference. But MY preference is not universal, so I will have to accept and tolerate OTHERS' preferences. That's what it is all about. Homosexuality is a state you are born into; it is not like a disease that will spread and contaminate the "normal" people.

Sexuality is a private matter; it is nothing that concerns the state or the society to any larger degree (other than public order, STDs and such).

As long as there is consent, it is none of your business to interfere in what people do sexually.
