A name commonly given to your average everyday person who works hard each day to make a living. A person who prefers the same sex for sexual activities. A person denied common rights such as marriage, getting into the emergency room with their mate is dying, and filing their taxes together. As varied as their straight counterparts, but stereotyped as being effeminate, dressing brightly or "metrosexual," and being promiscuous. Steretyped and being unmanly, weak, and having "mama" issues.
I'm a gay man who works a corporate job, drives a truck, drinks beer, works in the yard and prefers t-shirts, jeans, and country music. Take your sterotypes and shove 'em. PS - ever had a gay guy kick your ass? Want to now?
a normal person, who just has a diffrent taste in people
If someone is happy, and not afraid to be themselves, why should their sexual preference matter?
fuck you if your homophobic, homosexuals and bisexuals rock. they're the funnest people to hang out with.
Sexually attracted to the same sex. That is, men who want it from men, and women who want it from women. Not necessarily obsessed with anal or oral sex. The common slang term is "gay." (Also used is "queer," but you shouldn't use that term unless you are yourself one.)
Not necessarily any more lewd, kinky, perverted, or normal than straights...but not necessarily any less so.
s are protesting the idea of a homosexual running for the Senate."
"Huh? I thought that candidate was just gay!"
Someone who feels attracted to people of the same sex (see previous)
Maybe someday the church will realize that being a homosexual is not wrong, like when they realized the Earth isn't flat or the center of the universe.
Priest: The Bible says being a homosexual is not natural, that's why it is sin!
Person: So it means I can sell my daughter into slavery? Awesome!
A group of individuals subjected to thousands of years worth of ostracism, oppression, torture, and genocide. In some countries today, they are actively hunted by secret police, questioned under grueling, inhuman circumstances, and forced to reveal the names of other homosexuals who in turn receive the same treatment.
Though their origins are genetic, and they have been around longer than any organized religion, they are the 'outcasts', and they are the 'unnatural'.
With unsung bravery, they reveal themselves to society, and are scorned, bashed, and in some cases murdered. Through tolerance, speaking out, and EVERYONE LEAVING US THE FUCK ALONE, perhaps one day, homosexuals will gain their rightful place among the equal.
Homosexuals in today's news:
"Human rights groups have condemned the "barbaric" murder of a 14-year-old boy, who, according to witnesses, was shot on his doorstep by Iraqi police for the apparent crime of being gay." ~05 May 2006
What's the US's take? Don't ask, don't tell.
1.A person who has sex with someone of the same gender.
the argument that homosexuality is not natural is irrelevant for two reasons. first because were not the only animals to do it, and second because being natural dosnt mean it's bad or good. Poison is natural, so are vitamins.
Unfortunatly there are alot of gay people with AIDS. But what of the heterosexuals with AIDS? Is god punishing them? That's like saying anything bad that happens is because God is pissed at you. Would you tell a child that was molested it was his/her fault because God is pissed?
