Yes, another 'gay' post. I just don't understand..........
Some one said something today and honestly, I just am having a hard time understanding.
Can you guys help me out here.
She talked about how much things have changed. She mentioned how so many people seem to be gay, they are all coming out of the woodwork, out of no where the past several years. That she has a hard time understanding why any one would want to do that.
She is in her 60s. She has been around for a long time. I told her how, years ago, when the news about Rock Hudson came out, I was not surprised that he was gay. She asked me how I could not have been, it was such a shock! Because my mother 'dated' him many years ago and he was told to 'date' women. He was told he could never be who he was and have a career, a real life.
She didn't believe me. He was never gay, he just wanted to get in to something that wasn't the norm and ended up dying from it.
Some one mentioned how those gay people have been around since the dawn of time. They are just people, like she is. No, they are not. She truly believes the truth of the matter is that there are so many gay people now because they just don't know what else to do with themselves and they are all mentally ill in some way.
How can any one not realize that the gay person sitting next to you is no different than you are?? This isn't some fad that seems to have picked up steam. People are who they are.
Amazes me, the complete ignorance and the complete lack of even attempting to comprehend that thinking in such a manner is so far removed from reality.
