    you said common denominator, that is a phrase used in mathematics.

    You never clarified what "common denominator" or numerator you were speaking of. I get your metaphor and there is no need to be condensing, and post a dictionary definition of only part of the phrase you used. Its dishonest and frankly lazy.

    All that aside I mean it, i don't want to argue stupid semantics, i will delete it out of any further quotes and not discuss it any way further.

    What is this mysterious common VARIABLE that you speak of?


    Of course you do. I said, "I believe we are all bisexual." That is a statement of my personal belief.
    some people believe in leprechauns. Who cares?



    I didn't suggest it. I asked it. I don't know what circumstances. I was hoping to learn from You.
    These are the circumstances, I am gay, not bisexual. I know myself better than you know me. I don't really know why, frankly I have up caring why because it rally isn't important. I know i didn't choose it, if you did, hooray for you but just because you interpret bisexual orientation to be alternating orientation, not that that interpretation is wrong, but you ate dead wrong in the assumption that everybody is bi. I am not again I know myself better than you know me.

    Greed isn't the topic of this thread. Scripture never mentions homosexuality.

    I know what people say. They say they have tried and tried to be attracted to the opp sex and it hasn't worked. I'm not calling them liars. They are experts on their own experiences.


    Thank you. I have evidence it cannot be charged and it is harmful and wrong to try.
    I dispute that evidence. i question the conclusions. For instance. I agree that many attempts have failed, but i disagree that the attempts failed b/c it was impossible to achieve. I propose that the attempts failed due to improper procedures/approaches/underlying assumptions etc. -Not because orientation absolutely can not change/be changed.


    I work at a prison. It is not a natural setting for humans. The need for contact is greater than even the need for sex and people will get that contact any way they can.
    They will get it by overriding something that you seem to be saying is unchangeable. No. That will lead us to the "it's more than just sex that defines orientation" discussion. Would you like to go there?

    Really? Did you miss Leviticus? How about that little-known fellow named Paul? I know the Bible friend, that's why I rejected Christianity. Still, it says what it says even if its meaning and context tends to get lost in translation at times.

    How on earth does focusing on a mental picture of a man while having sex with the woman mean the man is straight? You are only further proving the reality that homosexuality is not a choice. Why to homosexuals commit suicide then? Why don't they just choose to be straight? Here is a challenge for you: choose to be gay. Try really hard. You seem so sure its a choice--make it yourself. Then, once you have proven it, choose to be straight again. No long term problems. It would be incredibly easy to prove it were all a choice if you could do that...but you can't.

    Sexuality is not a choice. Period.
    Refer to #562.

Thus idea that he has that you can force yourself to become attracted to someone is a recipe for disaster.

    But he is the kind of guy that thinks everybody us exactly like him. He repeatedly said that all people are bisexual with nothing to back it up. Personally I wouldn't put much weight into what he says.
    I repeatedly said that I believe we are all bisexuals.

    Well, as of right now, I have no intention of trying. I believe it is possible.

    Your mistake was actually accusing me of what you just did. I don't care that you misinterpret language.

    You said I am an either or type person, which isn't true but you haven't bothered to attempt to understand that but even your faulty assessment of my philosophical opinion on sexuality offers more latitude than yours, you say you are absolutely right and you know everybody else and their sexuality better than they do.

    This is arrogant and narcissistic.
    I feel the heat of your self-righteous fire. Something I said set you off. You've reacted. I hope you feel better. I re-iterate: I only state what I believe and I question beliefs. Remember what website you are on.
    I am sorry you find my response self righteous, perhaps you need to stop reading posts if you are so sensitive. I was giving my opinion same as you. I qualified it with my experience and education.

    Your belief is absurd.
