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?
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.
