    same thing right?...
    maybe not...
    when will people see that all gays want to be is happy and that marriage should be allowed for everyone
    its like they think that we chose to be gay or choose it... i know i didnt "choose to be gay" i like it now but i know i didnt choose it
    and when people ask
    "why did you ""choose"" to be gay/?" i am like
    i didnt choose it
    i mean sometimes i just want to say
    "can you just try something for me?, try to be attracted to the oppisite sex... you cant do it can you...?"
    bcuz i dont belive its a choice... well given the exception for all the bi people...
    this subject is just something that tears me apart...
    i think we should have the equality that straight people have... thats all...

    The desire non-heteros have for equality (esp. in marriage) is, unfortunately, way
    off-base; if "equality" is the goal, you need to popularize and publicize the in-equality of granting "special rights" to all others. When the populous convinces the politicians that the "special rights" are inequitable, if not unconstitutional; only then, will the community achieve a road to success. (...btw, I DID choose!)

    Although I am, assuredly, an optimist; I don't see the "community" achieving anything but resentment; until, a major-head-change is popularized, and tactic reversed.

    The "Sanctity" of marriage exists, exclusively, in the hearts of the married; everything else, is little more than political and legislative perversion.

    wellwell, that's because only bisexuals have the ability to choose....but I think that you didn't choose to be bisexual.

    You are 18, a tough time in every gay man's life, perhaps the toughest. Not only have you only relatively recently learned about your orientation, and it's full ramifications, but you are learning about inequalities imposed upon the gay world.

    You are at the developmental point when equality is very important to young people. Indeed, perhaps the real tragedy is how quickly its importance is forgotten & lost, as we age. To many just a few years older than you, inequality holds no interest at all, an inconvenient distraction to career pursuits. While some exist who will never lose their concern about inequality, with each year of age that involved percentage of their demographic decreases.

    But right now be careful inequality doesn't consume and distract you, even destroy you. Let it provide important lessons to carry into your mature life, when you will have more power & influence to fight it. The irony is that inequality commonly motivates us when we are young, yet lack the ability to correct it, but inequality is forgotten when years later we do have that ability and the resources to do good in the world.

    You have a good heart; now focus on providing it with the tangible means to make beneficial changes in the world. First things first: get a good education, plan a career, establish yourself in the world. Then using the influence & resources at your command, return to these inequalities and help to fix them yourself. I suspect you might be just the kind of guy to do it. icon_biggrin.gif

    Words of wisdom my friend, powerful and to the point. It starts within each of us to correct the public opinion that we are all equal, wasn't so long ago that women couldn't vote, african american had to sit at the back of the bus. Couple of weeks ago I overheard a lady talking with her friend about how sick she was of hearing about gay marriage, I walked up to her and asked "do you know what the women's suffrage movement was?" got this puzzled look and no answer. Told her, you fought for your civil rights, I'm simply doing the same. I was expecting a total confrontation, she paused for moment and walked away, but I could tell it gave her a new perspective, maybe I swayed a single person, maybe not, but I did my part to create a change

    I may not have much choice in being a pure homosexual. But I made the choice not to stand under the banner of gay, after first hand witnessing gay men killing gay brothers with the HIV virus back in the 80s, because they did not want their dick to miss out on the party or miss out on fresh new meat. I even have survived them trying to infect me, thus giving me a slow death, but my bodys immune system being over active protected me from them, unlike the many fiends I lost.

    There are many gays who are only happy if they are making others unhappy too. Also many diffrent communities is shoved under the banner of gay too!

    When are us pure homosexuals going to get a banner of our own?
