Well... at least you winked after calling me foolish, so that made me feel a little better.
I called your opinions
(on this topic) foolish... of course (as I emphasised) that's only in my opinion. Smart people (as I believe you are) often hold foolish opinions. I've identified several of my own, though if I know that it exists and is foolish then I've already removed it. I'm sure I have plenty more that are foolish though that I haven't spotted.
And I respect not only your right to have opinions but I also respect you yourself (because you're witty). Which I don't do for everyone, so don't get too depressed over it. Okay?
If I didn't have the right to be foolish, I think I would have been executed several times over by now... I love America.
Join the club brother. I don't live in America but I certainly appreciate the freedoms of the first world nations.
... I misread your question. I was about to answer "weren't homosexual" before I glanced up at it again. Certainly an intriguing question, thankyou for giving me something to think about... hmmm *ponders*
Just out of curiosity (I'm not going to try to make some sort of point out of it), have you ever felt that other men would be happier if they were homosexual?
Not everyone, but a few people I think would be. I don't think that it's a case of "everyone would be happier straight" or vice versa. Rather I think that each... (man I'm going to get killed for using this word) ... lifestyle, has its ups and downs, which mesh to differing degrees with individual personalities.
However if there were less prejudice and legal repression within the world against homosexuality the proportion of people whose happiness could be increased by becoming homosexual (assuming that such is possible...) would increase.
On the other hand if sexism (from both camps... women I'm not holding you blameless at all), were less then I believe some of the positive benefits of homosexuality for straight men would decrease. Not to the point where homosexuality would become overwhelmingly more negative than heterosexuality, but merely the two would become more equalised (as I believe they should be).
In short it is a complex issue in which one way can not be said to be "better" than another, only more suited to an individual personality.
As a final note, I believe everyone would be better off if we were all truely bisexual. I wouldn't give up being gay for just about anything, but if I were bisexual the chance of finding someone perfect for me would roughly double. It would also stop much of the ugly division.
