I believe that a person is born gay, that its who they meant to be. Its a natural as having two eyes and a nose. To say its unnatural, a freak mistake of wiring, and it needs to be treated like some sort of disease is completely asinine. Its intregrated into your very soul. To try and change your soul is impossible. You just can't change who you are.
But being gay does not define that person. They aren't limited to certain activities or whatnot because of their sexual orientation. I also believe that denying a homosexual the chance, no the right, to be who they are naturally is cruel, inhuman and that said person should be ashamed of themselves for stooping so low as to deny a person their birth right. All people should have the same rights and a chance to the same privileges, irregardless of who they are as a person.
Kinetic, I was just like you when I was younger. I was confused and ashamed that I was having the thoughts and desires I was. I thought that there must be something seriously wrong with me. That I was a sicko and a freak. I kept telling myself that I wasn't that type of person. Gay. I was confused and ashamed and disgusted with myself. I didn't tell anyone and held it in till I thought I would burst. I hated myself and wanted to just end it all. Maybe if I were dead, the thoughts couldn't find me. Soon, I very very tentatively accepted that, meh, its not so bad, that even if its wrong, its okay if I don't tell anyone. Still I held it in. I didn't even respect myself for having those thoughts and feelings, but I allowed myself to have them.
Little by little I grew more accpeting of myself and low and behold, I am free to say that I am who I am and that its finnally okay to be who I am. I am bisexual and I am now vast becoming proud of it. Sure, I will probably end up marrying a man because that's what I want to do, but I do know that I can now have my thoughts and feelings without shame, feeling wrong, and somehow a freak.
I am now at so much peace with myself and my sexuality that I finally feel free.
EDIT: Also wanted to say something I heard on CSI, a show I watch a lot. A homophobe is most likely a repressed homosexual, and is more afraid of it affecting themselves than anything.
