This is possibly the single saddest topic posting I've read on this site.
I have never wanted to, still don't want to, and cannot imagine ever wanting to be straight. Ever.
I consider being a gay man one of the greatest gifts of my life, in spite of any grief the un-evolved, bigoted and hateful fools that pollute the planet with homophobia have given me over the decades.
I wouldn't trade it for ANYTHING, regardless. Wanting equality, freedom, and some measure of assimilation without ignorant presumptions has never once made me regret being gay. This is my life, my identity, my heart, my soul just as is. To be anything other than a man, and on top of that a man who loves men, would be pure hell for me, personally.
I've never wished any straight friend was anything other than who they are, either. But I sure as hell wouldn't trade places with them. Nope, this is an amazing, complicated, rich, crazy life and what I make of it is up to me.
My children would be given the same perspective - you are valuable, unique, and truly one of a kind, and you are to be celebrated as you are, never envious of others, never regretful of your circumstances, and in complete control of your own destiny as determined by your choices and actions.
Feeling victimized or unfairly burdened by your circumstances is an act of cowardice, and wishing you were different is a waste of your personal gifts and talents - whatever they may be. Strive to be educated, respect others and learn kindness, grace, dignity, compassion, honesty, charity, courage, tenacity, diligence, determination, humility and, above all else, love, and you will have a rich life.
