hmmmmmmm, I knew this question would get some of the replies that it has, like I said I am not intentionally trying to piss anyone off, I was just curious thats all, I just happened to be hanging out with my friend yesterday and thought about this question, nobody is being forced at gun point to reply here and if you dont like what I am asking then either dont reply, or dont look, I dont think that I have asked anything in a defamatory way, like I said I get along with everybody generally, I'm not trying to bug yas

Yes, I would have to say that most of these responses are categorically predictable...

It is strange and somewhat disappointing that not a single person here will come out, or that in fact there are NO gay U2 fans that frequent this Forum.
I find that hard to believe.
I guess it IS very easy for me to say, but I just figure if one is going to pick a safe spot to acknowledge ones lifestyle it would be in this type of internet forum setting. Your privacy and annonimity is assured, as long as you dont give anyone else your real name and such.
Anyway, I'm straight, but find NO problem with gays and lesbians. To label and condemn any one group as evil and sick is wrong and against the teachings of Jesus (for any Christians out there). It also indictates a whole mess of psychological weaknesses and fears that I wont get into right now.
I have gay friends and coworkers... and they are just regular people!... (yawwwwwwn)

Oz! What up friendgirl!!!?????
I hope youre okay and still churning out that artwork!
God bless!

Peace

Oh I'm sure there are gay people in this forum, but maybe some people are just tired of sounding like an after-school special and are very tired of repeating themselves, so they'd just rather see you squirm. The reality is that, in America at least, homosexuals are defined by their sexuality. The rest of the world is not. And some people just prefer to remain an enigma.

Culturally, though, I know this is not a big deal in some nations. I know for one that when I was in the U.K., I was shocked to hear that being gay was kind of "popular." What a stark contrast to America, which generally perceives it in black-and-white--either denigrating stereotypes or hate-mongering. Both ends of the U.S. spectrum make me sick.

I'm sorry to hear that, tinydancer.

Bonoman, that was a basic bad reply and also predictable in being in bad taste. I get that responce from eleven year olds when saying gays shouldn't talk about their sexuality, they just come back with the responce, "you must be gay." or anything near along the lines of me being gay or having a boyfriend. And to think Bonoman, that I actually considered to hold you up to a higher standard, guess that was foolish to do.

ok you must have took that the wrong way.
I was joking. If you could read it again and not take everything so seriuosly. But i really could careless if you take it as a hit.

For what its worth, sorry for hurting your feelings. I'm sure i'll never live this one down...

Melon,
As much as a Patriot as I may come across to some people, I really agree with this. It really bothers me how some people are so self righteous and are so right, yet hate so much. Some people in America will broadly display their ignorance, as if it were a contest to see who is the stupidest. Unfortunately, those people always claim to be 'conservatives', but they are really just idiots. A lot of them don't even have a pot to piss in, but they are so correct in their beliefs that their so-called convictions are their undoing.

As long as nobody is outing other people here, I don't see what the big deal is. People can choose to reply in any way they want or ignore the question.

Where I come from, it's no big deal, and people are generally not defined by their sexuality. I think you'd have to be pretty uptight to worry about other people's sexuality.

Just out of curiosity, does anyone else feel that men are much more insecure about these things than women? You know, all the old "dropping the soap" jokes?
