Did someone tell you it wasn't okay to be gay? They're probably just a religious zealot. Nowadays its so mainstream that it shouldn't even be a topic for debate. /thread

Oh no I just wondered why some feel that its is a bad thing or a good thing purely looking for opinions not looking for encouragement or compliments.

It's abnormal, only because you don't see it everyday and it's not what a lot of people are used to. To a majority of people, this translates as BAD, particularly because we tend to fear the unknown. I believe what's "good" and "bad" is decided by the majority of members in our society. If that's true, then yes, being gay is currently "bad."

As time goes on, I hope it becomes "good," or maybe neither. =_= Neither works for me. Why don't we ALL just quit caring?

Only people that seem to think its a bad thing are those who blindly follow their faith and do as the church demands of them. I have no personal problems with LGBT so long as they respect the others around them and not make a public scene about it. I cant think of a single reason anyone should hate a homosexual. What are they, bad parents? Negative influence on the future generations? Do they go out and commit crimes waving the LGBT flag? How many times do you hear of homosexual physically harming a straight person because they were 'straight bashers'? I bet anyone who replies to this saying its not okay to be gay will have no real argument and just say "God hates homosexuals! You're going to hell!!"

yep.
edit: just to be clear, really there shouldn't be a why not to this. As explained above, anyone who is against Homosexuals at this point are scared of change, or religiously bound without even knowing what their religion advocates for, in most cases.

Basically, when I see someone against the gay community it instantly makes ME classify THAT person as undereducated. That's really all there should be to it.

Now, you can think or disagree with it, but that doesn't mean it shouldn't be a social norm(sorry for the double negative..). Two different arguments, before people skew the two.

Exactly who dictates what is 'okay' or 'wrong'? Me? Society? God?
You'll get various responses from any of those sources.

Personally I think it's fine, it's not like it affects me in any way, and if it makes other people happy...

I'm a strait Christian and I am a strong supporter of the LGBT community and LGBT rights. As far as I'm concerned, they're people too, and deserve the same rights and treatment as everyone else regardless of their sexual orientation. I think if you're gay, you're normal; there's nothing wrong with it because everyone has their personal preference. I honestly can't think of a good reason for it to be considered wrong.

Yes! Because, just like being straight, it is perfectly natural.

As a Christian, I can say that the Bible states that it's a sin to be gay. However that only relates to me and my personal choices (unlike how some other people put it)

I think that it's perfectly fine to be gay~ they're people too, and they shouldn't be treated any different (for better or for worse).

From what I was taught as a child it's a sin, but you're not supposed to judge that person for it is not your place to do so. You're supposed to love them regardless. I still believe that, even to this day. On whether it's okay or not, sometimes I think it is, sometimes I don't. I won't let my personal feelings though determine over how I feel about that individual.
