Someone who is attracted to the same gender romantically or sexually.
This is a group that is ridiculed quite often, and I will list a few reasons why, and prove that there is nothing wrong with homosexuality. However, I will also refrain from insulting other orientations or religions.
1- The bible
Many people believe that they should hate homosexuals because the bible says it is wrong. I believe this is a misinterpretation. However, for those of you who don't, I still have reasons for you to stop the hate. For one thing, Homosexuality as a sin is equal to masturbation. They are both acts of acquiring sexual pleasure without the purpose of reproduction. I believe nearly everyone has masturbated before, no matter what their sexual orientation or religion. If you are catholic, you might argue that you go to confession after masturbation, so it's all okay. Well what about all of the non-catholics who masterbate? Are you going to hate them just because they did it without going to confession? I doubt it. And what do you think god would dislike the most? It is one thing to commit a sin, but to hate an entire group of people for it is far worse. Whether you think homosexuality is moral or not, I believe that god would appreciate it most if everyone could learn to coexist anyway.

2- "It's not natural!"
This is one reason that I understand the least. I'm definitely sure that my sexuality was something I was born with, therefore making it natural. You could say the same thing about someone with dark skin or slanted eyes, but it actually is natural, whether you would prefer it to be or not. However, many of you do not buy this and think it's an excuse or a cover-up. Just think about this... Why would a person pretend to be something that is so socially unacceptable? Are we doing it as a cry for attention? Maybe you should get to know an individual who is gay. Examine their common personality traits. You can tell from getting to know someone whether they are the type who is desperate for attention or not. If the person doesn't seem to be after all the attention, they might in fact, be gay or lesbian. Sure, many gays and lesbians seem to be a bit wild or harsh, but this isn't how everyone in the GLBT community is, and this is just a stereotype anyway. Besides any of this, is it really neccessary to hate someone for something they engage in privately? Whether it disgusts you or not, it isn't impossible to be friends with someone just because they are of a different sexuality.

3- HIV/AIDS
Many people seem to think that aids is a way of punishing homosexuals. They also think that homosexuals are the ones primarily spreading HIV. This doesn't make sense, considering the origin of HIV, and the groups who are affected by it. AIDS was proven to be spread by apes, not homosexuals. Not only that, but many straight people have caught HIV, too. The largest amount of people who have AIDS are people in Africa. I am obviously not referring to homosexuals in africa. It is a disease that is affecting much of Africa's population today. How often do you hear about an AIDS outbreak in San Fransisco? I honestly don't think I ever have, other than from rumors started in the 80's before we new enough about the virus to make a valid decision on it's origin.

4- Other differences between gay and straight people
Homosexuals are commonly associated with odd behavior such as walking oddly or talking with a lisp. If you really think about it, isn't it a bit shallow to hate someone just because they act or look a little different? Other than that, we are only talking about a fraction of the gay community when we talk about behavior, speech, and appearance. While some gay men like to keep a more feminine appearance, others like to appear more masculine. While some lesbians look less feminine, many of them can be very girly. There are a lot of people who you would never expect them to be a homosexual unless they told you.


Male#1: I'm a homosexual.

Male#2: Me too!

Male#1: Wanna go out sometime?

Male#2: sure!

*hug and cute kiss on the cheek*

Homophobe: Eww, that's not natural! God doesn't like it, and you're going to spread HIV! You are TOTALLY different from straight people like me.

Male#1: I'm sorry that you can't accept me for who I am. However, I think you should look up "homosexuality" on urban dictionary and read more about it before you judge us.

While many seem to believe homosexuality is a disease in modern society, makes an individual less a human, or just an abomination to God, they are severely mistaken.

Always remember a homosexual is still human. They come complete with reproductive sexual organs, personality, hair, skin, nails, teeth, the basics, and they also come with a soul and are not possessed by the big bad Satan, Devil, or some evil spirit. They are normal.

Homosexuality is simply saying that this man likes other dick, and this woman likes other vagina. Hence its a "sexual preference" Meaning some people prefer things in a person that turn them on. Some want a slim body, and a sense of humor, others get a hard on for strong arms, and short hair. "sexual preference", Homosexuality is one side of it. There are the following sexual preference's :Heterosexuality, Homosexuality, Bisexuality, and Asexuality. The first three are the most common.

And no, its not a sin. That whole Book of Moses:Leviticus text that states "A man shall not lye in the layings of another man the way he would a woman" is an imcomplete text so could mean that You can't have Homosexual sex in a Pagan Temple, Homosexual sex at all, Anal sex, or simply Homosexuals are not okay. So with the four possible meanings a sect of Christianity usually takes the definition that best fits what they believe. Unfortunately many just take the one that condems the "gays" to hell.

So really there isn't anything wrong with these people because they are just people who happen not to be interested in the opposite sex. Comprende? If your still a little lost please realize that nearly everyone in the U.S. TODAY is bisexual with a GENDER PREFERENCE (who's junk they want) declaring them either Gay/Lesbian or Straight. Only about twenty percent of the people in the U.S. are 100% gay or Straight, the rest are to some degree Bisexual. So with that said the gays have got us surrounded, and in case you haven't noticed, they have for a long ass time. AND GUESS WHAT? Its normal. Homosexuals fall in love too, they don't molest children, they aren't possessed by Satan, or any of that negative bullshit, and, fuck without all the gay people out there where would I be?

George gave Philip a rose and said
"I Love You"

Virginia kissed Hillary and knew she was in love

Aubry found Jessica only slightly more attractive then Ben

Ben wanted to do Jessica, even though he had been dating Tom

The above are various homosexual/bisexual situations

A normal person who has feelings for the same sex and only the same sex. Homosexual men are known as gays while Homosexual women are known as lesbians. Stupid homosphobics have decided that they are some kind of freak of nature because THEIR OWN religion states it as such in the Bible, alongside eating shellfish and other things that people shouldn't give a damn about. Unfortunately, that is untrue. My sister is gay and I am bi, so believe me when we say that nobody chooses their own sexuality and that everyone should just let people love.
The homosexual could not marry her girlfriend since the government decided to stick their fucking noses into her life.

Despite what many people think, this is NOT a sexual preference, is something one is born with
I'm homosexual, I didn't choose it, I don't want to change. Thank you, very much

Best people in the world. Many are healthy and fit, dress well, look good, don't add towards the overpopulated...population, is fighting towards respect of having feelings (sexual, emotional, physical and mental) towards those of the same sex, can decorate very well, and are clean. They not only are awesome, but are just plain cool.
Homosexuality should become a religion, because it is so cool.

1. Someone who simply loves someone of the same sex, and anyone who hates and/or fears them is simply doing nothing but ostracize someone for being different.
2. It is NOT a synonym for stupid. It is highly offensive to those who are gay, or know someone who happens to be gay.
1. Homosexuals are awesome. How could you hate them?
2. Homosexual, gay, lesbian, homo, etc. are not synonyms for stupid or any other insult. Many people do not know what they are saying is homophobic, and we must educate them about that.
