canadian_stud saidNot for everyone.
I think Obama is generalizing and so are most of the people on this forum.
I have met a lot of guys who are bi sexual and have swung one way or the other. I have met men where there never was a choice and I have met men who choose being gay or straight based on what they want out of the relationship/lifestyle.
I don't think you can generalize on either side.
Whether a bisexual inclines towards gay or str8 is not lifestyle even if he is able to pick one over the other for any period of time, it is still his sexual orientation. Someone who chooses a gay relationship while identifying as str8 might not necessarily be a matter of orientation though I suspect most of those are closet cases, as it could be someone in jail or in the army or some a scientist in the Antarctic or some other forced situation, maybe even someone who got burned by opposite sex, whatever, so in that case it could be lifestyle. But being gay is never about lifestyle unless you're talking about two gay guys yachting. The sexuality is always about orientation. The president was wrong to mischaracterize us otherwise. I was surprised by the remark.http://www.glaad.org/reference/offensive
There is no single lesbian, gay or bisexual lifestyle. Lesbians, gay men and bisexuals are diverse in the ways they lead their lives. The phrase "gay lifestyle" is used to denigrate lesbians, gay men, and bisexuals suggesting that their orientation is a choice and therefore can and should be "cured"
theantijock saidThe reporting in the link above is pure bullshit, however, because it says that progressives demand that people believe a certain way, which is horseshit.
That's "Daily Caller" territory. Read anything from them or Newsmax, or anything in Murdoch's collection, and that's what to expect. It's no different than Faux News. In their fantasy world and that of their readers, anyone not wing-nut conservative is "bitter," "hateful," etc and the mainstream media is full of "liberal bias." Living a life of paranoid delusion must suck big time. Just ask any of the handful of GOP/libertarian trolls who pop up in this forum at the drop of a hat.
Check the cited source and save a click.
I didn't know that particular source but didn't need to as I could tell from its presentation what was its political bent. Before commenting in prior post I did check to find the youtube on another source, wondering if it was an older reference or actually current.
Joeyphx444 saidObama has never been a real supporter of gay rights overall, he just catered to them to gain votes, duh, how can you guys be so stupid
Obama has lied about everything. And at this point I'm cutting my losses and cutting ties to the Democratic Party after a 40 year membership. It's amazing that he got all those high ranked women to lie, cheat and steal for him. Were they entranced by big black dick?
I never thought you were a Democrat. Nice to see you come out.
