What if straight was gay and gay was straight?

This is a short 19 min. film depicting a world where gay is the norm, and being straight is considered "abnormal". It's very powerful, if you have the time to watch it. If you do watch it....what are your thoughts?

Does this help to see things from the other point of view for you?

  • If straight were gay and gay were straight, we'd be bickering over the same issues we are now. It's unending.

  • Why do people respond to posts about videos when they very obviously do not watch the videos?


    It's heartbreaking, and every parent protesting the Same Love video being shown to 8th graders should be required to watch this before they're allowed to speak.

  • Now i'm crying...

    wow

    and I agree with BG about the Same Love video/ song. If they (parents) don't think that kids that age have a clue yet...or think it's a phase, all i can say is that the people I knew then who thought they were gay, or bisexual or whatever at age 13/ 14 are STILL the same now, as they were then. It was not a phase
