    So my mega conservative brother was talking to this religious lady a day, a while back and something they said while they were bashing gays came up... she had asked why so many people were turning away from religion and "goin' gay" and he was like "it's the cool thing to do" and she agreed.

    To me, that's obviously BS because I haven't heard once of straight people pretending to be gay just to get attention (well I know one guy who acted that way just for attention but he didn't do anything like have sex with guys, that I know of). So do people actually "go gay" just for attention or to look cool? Because I've never heard of that.

    I think your brother is right. I think alot of scene kids and hipsters swing both ways because it's the "fresh" thing to do.

    I don't know about it being cool, but definitely in this day and age there is more of an openness to experiment ... does that make a person gay because they experimented with the same sex ... no .... Homosexuality is not really a black and white thing as Judeo Christians like to portray it. It is more of a gray scale area, this is what scares the Judis-Christians the most, because it forces them to confront their internal conflicting feelings. Perhaps the real question is, does homosexuality equate to being gay?

    edit:
    In primitive times, homosexuality was more of a norm, like the roman soldiers who often had younger male lovers. Even in todays environment, Arab men will have sex with younger effeminate men, but they will be top and they consider the guy as a woman, so they do not consider themselves homosexual or gay.

    Well the thing is I see it as, maybe now that there is more openness and less judgment about it (in America at least) people who had those feelings are now acting upon them rather than keeping it suppressed.

    no, "going gay" is not the "cool thing to do."

    no sane person would willingly want to be harassed, have their life threatened, and be denied basic human rights.

    you need to educate your brother so he will no longer make ignorant, blanket, declarative statements such as this.

    A lot of str8 guys tag " gay as the hip thing to do"...to justify gettin their cock wet by any means possible..leavin the wide eyed gay guy depressed about a lost love...Later this gay is burning black candles at midnight...Gays stick to your own..less hurt and mental bullshit that way.

    But we do hear about bisexual pretending to be straight, then want to be seen as gay. Thus it looks like straight turning gay, where in fact the status Que is the same as in they are bi, they just made a lifestyle change.

    Agreed wholeheartedly but nowadays I cannot blame people for their confusion as everyone and their mother stands under the GAY umbrella even though they are not remotely bonafied.

    I think they do it cause they're bi, and use social excuses to excuse their behaviors so they go straight when the time is right. icon_confused.gif

    People make fun of your, you have to hide it for as long as you can before your heart explodes, and you don't have any right to expect work or insurance companies to be nice to you at all. Oh yes, please join!

    There are a LOT of punks/sceen kids/hipsters who are only barely bi (mostly attracted to girls) but will do it with a dude for street cred, basically because in those circles it definitely is cool to be bi. Which is fine, they can do whatever they want, but they are often misrepresenting themselves for the cred.
