I reckon homosexuality is just as legitimate and normal as heterosexuality.

In fact I reckon that approximately half the world's population is born homosexual in one way or another. Some people maintain some of their homosexual tendancies, whilst many people's sexual orientation is determined by the how heterosexuality has become "normalised" by both the media and various religons.

Most people, I reckon, have homosexual tendancies that they are never aware of, and they inadvertantly never entertain the thought of themselves being homosexual, because the prospect just seems so farfetched for their mind.

Deep down, the idea of committing a homosexual act is actually rather desirable, yet they can never acknowledge this feeling...

I don't pretend to know how many people are born as each, BUT, doesn't this arguement if taken in reverse undermine the obvious fact that homosexuals are in fact BORN that way and NOT "turned gay" or whatever? Or are you under the assumption that homosexuals are not born homosexual and do have the ability to be socialized into heterosexuality?

yay heterosexuality. it must be wonderful to feel so validated in such a way, every day, that you're not even aware of it.
This reminds me of a conversation I had with my mother recently. We were talking about when Ellen came out to society. Her show then constantly dealt with her as a lesbian. My mom said people didn't so much care that she was a lesbian, they just felt that by making every episode about her being a lesbian was cramming her homosexuality down other people's throats.
I really do not like this train of thought. I asked her, "Oh and Friends isn't about heterosexuality every single episode."

There were other reasons, I think, besides blueeyedpoet's mother's reason for no longer watching Ellen.

Ellen's coming out show was one of the funniest things I saw on TV. And I thought Degeneres was incredibly brave. I wanted to keep watching it to support her. But the problem for me was not the continuing story line about her being a lesbian. It was that it really did stop being funny. It became earnest. I don't do earnestness well.

I did not see Brokeback Mountain, although I wouldn't be adverse to seeing it if it was plopped in my lap. There's no ick factor involved for me. But I see about two movies a year, if I'm lucky, and it wasn't a movie I was compelled to go out of my way to see. Not because it was a gay movie, but it was a relationship movie which generally bore the hell out of me. Heterosexual or homosexual, sexual or non. I think I've really liked a grand total of two relationship movies--Midnight Cowboy and McCabe and Mrs. Miller.

I like some men

Most I just like to observe from a safe distance and ponder their mental state

This gay friend of mine jokes to some other friends (G and T, a man and a woman who are married to one another) that "it's okay to be straight, just don't do it in public"

What Yolland said.

Heterosexuality and homosexuality are both over rated.

Love, however, is not.
