I will never understand the whole "Dude lesbians are so hot, but eww gay guys are just gross" mentality.
It makes no sense, and fetishizes lesbians.

I've generally found guys aren't attracted to actual lesbians but what people in the UK might term lipstick lesbians (not the same as the American term, which just means a very feminine lesbian) - straight girls who'll make out with each other because they see it in adult films and think guys will like it. As ever, life imitates art (or, rather, pr0n).

I find it gross. Unrelated of gender or relations. BTW, I find certain patting the butt to be rather gross too.

Yep, I'm not keen on overt public shows of affection either, whatever the orientation of the couple. Although I've been guilty of patting my horse on the bum in public so I hope I haven't offended!

Altho not gay, I welcomed the legislations that gays could marry. I never did understand why an employer would accept a common law spouse (opposite gender) to the benefit package, yet it could not be extended to gay relationships. Now it can. They are entitled to the same security as others. I've had church people rant on and one about what the bible says and rather than beat a dead horse, I ask them how it affects them and they are always stuck for an answer..Kitten, I agree, it's just poor manners. I'm fine with a cheek peck but not public foreplay.

Men think lesbians are hot because the porn industry has made it appear that all women, regardless of actual sexual orientation, are all lesbians if given the chance. Guys, it's PORN! It's NOT REAL LIFE!

The idea of touching another woman sexually makes me. Me nauseated, not turned on. A true hetero woman is no more attracted to the same sex than a hetero man. Deal with it.

Oh, and I'd never wear heels while engaged in the act, as that's a good way to put out someone's eye. It's all fun and games until somebody takes a stiletto to the eye!

Sexuality is a major part of who a person truly is.
Heterosexuals do not need to proclaim their sexuality as the public will assume that most are.
Identifying as gay or lesbian is an empowering statement of self awarenesss.
The issues of race, religion, and sexual orientation are important and do indeed matter.
Homophobia is based in fear and lack of understanding.
Denying someone the same rights as everyone else only stigmatizes Gays.
Public displays of affection are never in good taste if they cause you to blush or sweat while engaged in them.
A touch or a kiss is not a problem and should not be for anyone.
Digging for internal organs however should be reserved for the privacy of your own home. Shalom

Common law marriage is no longer recognized in Georgia. There are no benefits packages without going through the legal marriage. For the record, I am straight, but I don't care if you are or not. And I don't want to see you kissing regardless .......

4. Gay Marriage ? I think they should have the right to be just as miserable as the rest of us. Why should they get off so easy ? Seriously it doesnt affect me so why should I care ?
hahahahaha.

This level of behavior is not flaunting their sexual preference , right?

Ok, can two men who love each other, may have years together , are monogamous, can they do all this withou arousing your displeasure and distate? Ask yourself and be honest.
I don't have to ask myself anything - I am perfectly comfortable with my own sexuality and my attitude toward homosexuals. I have a homosexual Uncle who has been with his same "partner" for over 55 years now. They don't bother me a bit, because they are just like anyone else - they don't walk into a room and announce to the world they are homosexual as if it were some badge of honor. Then I have a homosexual nephew that just turned 30, and he throws it in your face constantly, talking of little else, and making sure everyone he encounters knows he is homosexual - when most people could really care less. As I said, you don't see heterosexuals broadcasting to the world they are heterosexuals. Flaunting has nothing to do with casual touching or showing affection...at least to me, although I am not a touchy feely type of person myself...
