How is being gay an identity?

What does that mean that it is an identity?

that you like to dress like the opposite sex?

that you talk and act like the opposite sex?

Because that is stereotypical and it does not apply to all gays.

So how is it your identity? Define it. And don't just say,"you are born that way, it is like your skin color, you can't change it." Unless you have a scientific study to back that up.

I doubt anyone can.

  • Okay, so no one has any facts. You are just repeating what you hear on talk shows. It figures. A bunch of housewives getting facts from TV.

  • Wow, you're misguided. How is being straight an identity? It actually is part of me, like my hair color, etc. I never chose to like men. I just do. Sexual preference isn't something I or anyone else chooses.

    I'm really wondering more about why you're so obsessed over who other people are loving.

  • Older comes here and and starts drama, and then when someone is actually interested in getting some facts about homosexuality it is wrong?

  • Stop making it about me. Do you have facts to back up your opinions or not?

  • "Older has personal experience with this issue"

    That is not true. She has a secondary experience with this issue. She is not gay, her daughter is. And any time someone who was gay says they are not anymore she calls them liars!

    She does not have personal experience. She only says what she has been told.

  • Being gay IS part of an identity like hair color, or race. Some people were born gay just like some people are born white with blond hair. It's just a part of them and is as much a part of thier identity like being straight is for some of us.

    It doesn't mean you dress a certain way, or eat certain foods. It means that you are sexually attracted to the same sex.
