    As the general mainstream is, I predict, just about five years away from wrapping up the complete normalization of homosexuality, it's hard to say what individual circumstances are for these people who felt the need to come out. For all we know, the communities, businesses and families they came from may have been extremely volatile as homosexuality is concerned, and coming out publicly may have been cathartic for them.

    Anyway, famous people coming out has literally zero impact on me, and don't understand why one would be irritated by it.

    Sexual orientation doesn't draw it's meaning form "standards of decency"...those have zero to do with defining sexual orientation. But at this point I'll leave that part of the discussion for the captain whose much more versed in discussing it.

    Even though virtually all pedophiles are men that rape young girls about 3/4 of the time over boys---by the very definition of word "homosexual" all men who rape boys are homosexuals.
    Actually, that's not entirely true to my understanding. Again, I'm sure Captain can come in here and give a better explanation then my base understanding, but to my understanding the attraction to young/teen children does not inherently correlate to what ones attraction is to adults in a sexual or romantic manner.

    But for the sake of argument, let's say sure...a man who rapes a young boy is a homsexual...

    So therefore, I would like to know the sexual preference of anyone living nearby that rapes children---as we have both our own kids, the neighbors and relatives' kids fequently in our home.
    See, that was my questoin....

    Are you saying in your scenario you already know the person rapes children, and thus because of that you want to know their sexual orientation?

    Or are you saying that in that scenario you don't know if they rape children, but you want to know their sexual orientation because they might be child rapists?

    That was where I was confused with your wording, and if you could answer that question it'd definitely help clarify things.

    I think this thread has the wrong title...It should be called ''Do you mind if people are Gay''

    I certainly don't but when pedophilia and rape are introduced..That is something else..

    Of course no-one finds this ''fine''

    Capt C and I have already been round and round on this pedo-homo thing.

    So, having teen daughters at my house, if I saw a known male pedophile who had a history raping young boys talk to one of my girls on the street, I would be somewhat alarmed.

    Now if the same man was getting too chummy with some of my young male nephews, I would be more alarmed, because his "sexual orientation" would then become a problem. I would then take immediate action.

    Does that make sense?

    It all depends on the person and the cirumstances. I realize it's not for everyone, I was just throwing that out as an option.

    I must be putting off some vibe lately because gay guys have been smiling at me trying to make great eye contact...

    Yeah, but pedo's are not gay... they are pedophiles.

Are you tired of hetersexual relationships being displayed as essential parts of stories? What about celebrities and their relationships. Are you tired of them expressing their love for one another on television? I'm just trying to see to what extent you're sick of if you're sick of a specific group of people expressing their sexuality.
    I get tired of hearing about who celebrities are dating, yes. However, most of them are "exposed" as a couple by paparazzi, not because they "came out" as a couple. Gay celebrities, on the other hand, feel the need to grant an exclusive interview about it, have an entire expose' written about it, talk about their whole gay journey, etc. I don't care. Most people don't IMO. If a celebrity is asked directly, "Are you gay?" and he/she responds honestly, I'm fine with that. I'm just tired of the big look at me campaign most of them go on when coming out. Michael Sam comes to mind on that.
    I guess that's my issue with it more than anything. The look at me part. I'm not a look at me kind of guy so when people do things for attention like that, it bugs me. The same goes for a wide range of things celebs do from football players dancing in the end zone (though some are funny), celebs on the cover of every magazine on the rack (Kim K, Swift), etc, etc.

    I sense you sarcasm but, much to your chagrin, I agree with you. Unfortunately for you, paparazzi are usually the ones that write that crap. It usually isn't the celebs that directly instigate those stories. At least not publicly.
