@Frukaj:  Hey, I’m one of those sexually defective, “born wrong” people you’re talking about.

I will be having genetic children of my own, but even if I didn’t, my mom would still be thrilled for me because I am an awesome, loving, sucessful person who has found someone great to share my life with. There is nothing wrong with me.

Saying there is something wrong with gay people might not make you a bigot, but it does make you sound ignorant. Not to mention rude.

@moonadea:  <3   My parents have always said “whatever makes you happy”, and I really tested that when I told them I wasn’t having kids. They were totally fine, didn’t blink an eye. I dated a girl for a bit during my senior year, and asked my mom if I decided to commit to a woman, would it matter? Whatever makes you happy, was her answer 🙂

 

 

And also, Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka have twins, and each one happens to have a different fathers DNA. Yes they are gay, but each has a biological child out of a set of twins. And guess what? Your god created those twins that way. Maybe sending a message?????

@MrsDrRose612:  It’s okay, people like her don’t get to me anymore. I just want her to be aware that these are real people with real feelings we’re talking about here, not just some nebulous “other” people.

I’m still new here – Can anyone comment on if there are ‘rules’ in this forum to protect LGBTQ members? It seems like there should be. I don’t expect it on the rest of the site, but I want to be able to come into the LGBTQ forum and feel like it’s a safe space for LGBTQ people and their allies. It’s so frustrating to feel like it’s being invaded by people who oppose equal rights and think that gay people are born “wrong” and are “sexually defective genetically.”

I would be equally devastated if my straight children decided not to have kids, but that’s another discussion entirely.  And no sh*t, I would NEVER tell a child they were born wrong.

Someone asked for someone with my views to share them, because people with opposing views on these topics are never shared.  And for obvious reasons. 

The purpose of sex, in case any of you missed biology class in 9th grade, it is to have children. If a person enjoys sex with something/someone other than someone they can have a child with, then they are sexually defective. If it was intended for 2 women or 2 men to have children together and be parents together, they would biologically be able to. 

The difference between homosexuality and other sexual deficiencies (like pedophila or beastiality, for example) is it involves 2 consenting adults and no one gets hurt, I don’t think anyone can say that gay people should not be allowed to marry and they shouldn’t be able to enjoy the same legal benefits as any straight couple because there is just no reason for it.

@Frukaj:  So you never have sex with your FI/DH/whoever unless you are ACTIVELY trying to make a baby, right?

I hate the idea that someone (be it a couple or an individual) is somehow defective and “born wrong” because they can’t have children naturally. Lots of people are unable to conceive naturally regardless of their sexuality – how does this make someone ‘wrong’. Just because you can do something doesn’t somehow make you or your relationship superior to someone else and their relationship because you have the good fortune to be fertile and they don’t.
