    I don't care, but it is important for gay/trans people to come out, especially people in the public light. It is important to let others know that they are not alone, that there are other people like them, possibly even people they look up to and admire, and to normalize being LGBT in the culture.

    I expected you to agree with me. It's the first step to you acknowledging just a little hypocrisy. My comments were about "normal" people as much as celebrities, since you referred to that too, the point being that indirect references to sexuality are pretty much constant in normal conversation yet people who complain about "hearing everyone's sexuality" never mention that. Isn't it the case that you don't mean everyone's sexuality at all, only the sexuality of a specific subset of people.

    As far as celebrities go, many of them do instigate many of the stories and photos about them to keep themselves in the public eye and that often includes things like creating the impression (often false) of relationships with other celebrities or holding exuberant "private" weddings then selling the pictures to some trashy magazine. Most homosexual celebrities do no more than this themselves and some feel forced to do much less, keeping their private lives completely hidden, especially if they work in fields where homosexuality isn't as accepted.

    Many of the big "coming out" announcements seem to be a statement against this discrimination and so those people can live normal lives without the tabloid trash making (as much of a) big thing if they happen to be photographed at the shops holding hands with a member of the same gender. Some of them are certainly grand self-promotion but how is that any different to things like the weddings I've already mentioned? Also, if nobody cared about celebrities sexualities in the first case, nobody would take any attention of the announcements in the first place. The problem here isn't sexuality, it's celebrity.

    Now what do you expect me to beleive?

    The world's top psychiatric know-it-alls said in their DSM -5 that pedophillia was a sexual orientation---just like hertero- and homosexuals.

    And the last time I checked, a man having sex with a male boy, and a woman having sex with a female girl were ingaging in homosexual acts.

    Do you pretend to know more than the world's highest authority on the subject?

    noun: sexual orientation; plural noun: sexual orientations:

    a person's sexual identity in relation to the gender to which they are attracted.

    I didn't see anything about the age here. Therefore consent has nothing to do with it.

    Yes, to a point. So long as you're saying you'd want to know orientation AFTER knowing they're a child molester.

    The way you originally said it, it seemed like you wanted to know orientation in general, because if they're gay they're probalby a child molester. That's what confused me.

    Are you seriously saying that (assuming you're heterosexual), you're attracted to females of all ages, right down to pre-pubescent girls?

    i'm going to repeat this until it sinks in :

    homosexuality is not analogous to pedophilia because an adult homosexual can consent and a child cannot. same thing with bestiality. you're going to have to find some other inflammatory hyperbole, because your current analogy is fatally flawed.

    Because morality has decayed to such a point that convicted child molesters and serial predatory rapists may now freely walk among society---after being scolded on how to behave and maybe wearing an electronic monitor----I would like to know if there are any of these people who have sexual orientation to rape girls or boys are living nearby.

    As to sexual orientation of the people around me---most neighbors can figure that out----and that's not too much of a personal problem for me. I even had a roomate in college who I was 95% sure was gay. He had his own bedroom a few steps away and his male friend would often go in and out through the window. I didn't have a problem with him.

    I do have a problem with gays, beastophiles, pedophiles and others with strange sexual fetishes wanting full marriage rights with whatever they are having sex with.

    The dictonary says that sexual orientation deals with a person's attraction to one sex or the other.

    I'm not attracted to young boys or girls---as you imagine. I like blondes adult females with attractive figures. And I've been married to one for decades.

    You can believe anything you want. Free country.

    However, although the PC police say otherwise, any male pedophile that rapes a male child is commiting a homosexual act and has an obvious sexual attraction to male boys.

    If there was some sort of anger issue, as the PC liberals suggest in pedophillia---then almost all pedophiles would each randomly molest girls and boys during their sexual conquests. However, child rapists are virtually always sexually selective, and 3/4 of the time, it is a heterosexual man raping a girl.
