    I just came across this video... wow. These people are seriously mixed up between a homosexual and a pedophile! If this is what people were shown in the 50s about what gay people are, no wonder things are so messed up.

    Just thought I'd share this with you guys.

    When growing my parents explained my brother and I , that homosexuality wasn't a disease or a choice . They also told us love can be as strong and profound between same sex couple .

    No, this one certainly is but not all of them are. Many have been cleaned up and put out on DVDs and make for interesting, if forgotten, ways to improve one's self, learn better, be a better citizen, etc. They may seem quaint and "irrelevant" by today's standards, but their lessons are good ones.

    Wow. That was like a how-to guide for future pedophiles.

    I saw that video before. During my first year in college, I came to a GSA meeting. They showed that very same video and the entire crowd started laughing. So ridiculous how homosexuality is put into the same category with pedophilia. I've even came across folks who put homosexuality in the same category with incest and bestiality. Can't we keep it simple? What does homosexual mean? Attraction to the same sex. But dumbfucks have to overthink it. I would never do anything sexual with family. I look at a child and it's a child. I look at animals and they are outside my species.

    "Oh it means when someone likes animals and little kids and they rape their families." STFU

    In that era a homosexual = pedophile. There was no distinction, it was the same person. Many in the US still hold that view. icon_sad.gif

    You'd be surprised the misconceptions people have. I was once at a private dinner for about 20 in Boca Raton, Florida, with a music recital afterwards. My husband & I were the only non-millionaires there. And it was known we're gay.

    I was having a nice general conversation with this matronly lady seated over cocktails before dinner, when she asked me:

    "How many years is it before a gay person develops AIDS?"

    You can imagine how stunned I was. I won't go into my reply, which of course was polite but corrective. But what I took away was how incredibly misinformed, one might even say ignorant, some people are about gays. Even among those members of the educated & wealthy elite. icon_eek.gif

    Ah the carefree joys of being a college student - each day, reveals more how we live in a gerontocracy, where the prejudices of our forefathers are foisted upon us as cultural values, norms.

    It's not just coincidence that the biggest bigots are often closeted; most paedophiles are straight, not catholic priests and choir boys. An intriguing question, perhaps, is - who promotes the dissemination of such misinformation, and why?

    Ironic, isn't it, that our butch counter culture is as much a product of Hollywood fiction as neo Nazi propaganda.

    Now I understand why you got married. Are you sure you are gay?

    Please explain the connection between a cocktail party in Boca Raton and why I was previously married. And yes, I'm gay and very out, very involved with the gay community on many levels. Can you say the same about yourself?

    And some people still wonder why conservatives tend to get a bumpy ride when they come onto a gay website.
