    Are we more sensitive towards relationships? What is your personal view?

    Yes, that's why they're trying to make gay marriage legal across the entire US...it'll generate billions in divorce revenues.

    The question is vague and can be taken in at least two ways:

    1) More sensitive towards relationships than heterosexuals.

    Well, it depends what you mean by 'sensitive'. Generally speaking, I would say 'no'.

    2) More sensitive in terms of relationship recognition (marriage rights).

    Yes. Everyone should have the same rights, which is generally not the case at the moment.

    Well I always feel the need to please and put other guys needs first. Is that emotional insecurity, I think so.

    I don't think it is. It's just being selfless as opposed to selfish, and it isn't necessarily a negative thing.

    I would say there are two answers too...

    If being Gay and part of the Gay Community is how you define who you are, then absolutely yes. You will be more likely to be effected by statements or actions against anyone individual or group you define as gay.

    When you here that FOF states that a loving marriage between a man and a woman is the best environment to raise children, and therefore do not think gay marriages is a good thing, you think, "All Christians are Homophobic, therefore all Christians hate me." That's not Fair!"

    If being Gay doesn't define you as a person, but merely a component of who you are, then no. You are more likely to understand an individual statement or action as a individual action or statement, that I may or may not need to worry about.

    When you here that FOF states that a loving marriage between a man and a woman is the best environment to raise children, and therefore do not think gay marriages is a good thing, you think, "I understand there point, there may be genetic deference in males and females that result in each sex bringing specific strengths to a relationship geared to raising children successfully," however we need to educate them to understand that while some gays have or want children, most gays are looking to be treated equally and allowing gays couples to have the same rights and status as heterosexual couple is not going to FOF's goals. This will take time, for the majority of people in the country to get to the point where they understand this and the laws are changed. But we will get to that point a lot quicker than if we get in there faces and call them names and demand they think like us or else. "It's not fair, but life's not fair."

    Insecured?

    I don't think there's really a way to prove if we are or aren't more insecure. My guess is yes. But it's hard to tell, straight guys don't always talk about their emotions except in Judd Apatow movies.

    Another way to read the question:
    Many gay guys come out and hence start dating later than their straight peers, which makes them a lot less mature relationship-wise during their early years out of the closet. Figuring out what works and what you can put up with in a relationship takes a while and probably a couple of relationships. While straight people might already think of marriage, kids and the white picket fence, their gay peers might still be in their slut-phase or serial monogamy or speed-dating phases.
    Growing up in hetero-centric cultures also leaves damages that might take a while to undo after coming out.

    OMG I await for reality TV: " Gay Divorce Courts." Just when we thought the straights could not get any lower in Divorce. The gays have taken it to a lower dept of bitterness, revenge, spite, and lies, tiaras and tantrums.\Pure entertainment. We will make the straight look like saints.icon_lol.gif
