Your thoughts

It bears challenging how ANY straight person could consider themselves an expert on what being gay is, how it feels to be gay and what experiences there is in it, from family to family, region to region.

The hectoring and lecturing I've seen coming from the anti gay is especially ludicrous.
It's like a segregationist asserting he not only knows the most about black people, but he's experienced discrimination more than a black person.

As for a straight person arguing that a gay person can choose and actually HAVE a choice is like a man insisting to a woman, that he knows that cramps don't hurt that much and child birth hurts even less.

And as a straight person, I can't get any more embarrassed by the charade of it all.

After all, men DON'T lecture women about cramps, so the question is: why DO straight, anti gay people feel perfectly comfortable with lecturing gay people on what life is as a gay person and what to do about it?


***one man did ask me once about cramps. So I told him, it's like having your nuts in a crushing vice for a day or two, bleeding heavily out of them for even longer.

If that helps you get the picture guys...
