If this should be moved to Serious Discussions, go ahead, but it's not really a debate or philosophical, so I put it here.

Basically- are you? If you saw a homosexual in the street or in public, would your outlook on that person be negative, or altered?

Keep in mind that there are two types: those in it for the sex, and those who are just attracted, not in a purely physical way, to the same sex.

I know quite a few people who are in the latter category, and so I have grown up seeing them as normal people, and so I have always thought of homosexuality as just a preference, like a foot fetish or color preference or whatnot. I have SEEN others though, but since I have a pretense of them being normal people, I have never been offended by their actions. Then again, they've never been directed at me, so maybe that makes a difference.

I'm not soliciting homosexuality, but I do believe that there is nothing wrong with it whatsoever.

I'm not here to get on your ass if you are bias, I just want to know what your take is.

Are you suggesting just meeting one, or seeing one involved in homoesexual acts?

Either way, I am not biased against them because of their sexual orientation. For the second part, personally, I don't really want to see PDA from homosexuals or heterosexuals. Keep it in your own privacy.

If there was a way to assure us that only good looking people would be involved, maybe that'd be another story. LOL IM SUCH A FAG!! jk.

It also upsets me when friends or other people I know use "gay" or "homosexual" in a degrading sense that has nothing to do with whether or not someone is actually gay.

I was incinuating seeing one with another, not like having sex or anything.

I agree, though, anyone, regardless of orientation, should perform sexual actions in their own privacy, and never do things to people that don't want it.

Shouldn't one of the options be "I am homosexual"?

Your orientation doesn't really decide your bias, or lack thereof. Some people that are women hate being so, or men, etc.

Yeah, but the point is, your orientation doesn't really answer the question.

It seems awful ludicrous to me for a homosexual to be biased against other homosexuals. I can't see how I'd be biased against other straight people.

Maybe if you had made the poll something like "Are You Biased Against Other Sexual Orientations?"

Doesn't really seem to affect the poll, IMO, but it's your poll.

I have nothing against homosexuals, but I do believe that like heterosexuals they should keep the physical aspect of their relationships private.

I am not bias against them. Some of them are cool, like Sarik.

Besides, if it is their choice of lifestyle, then no one but themselves should deal or interfere with it.

It doesn't really affect the way I act. I'm good friends with several gay or bi people, and it really doesn't change much.

If anything, I'm not as harsh if I'm making fun of them or something. But I doubt I even do that.

I'm bisexual. I don't see there being much difference between hetero and homo, other than sex.

i think differently of them too.

i mean, being gay is sort of choosing to be in a minority. well, i'm not saying that you choose to be gay or not, but to be openly gay is a very strong, daunting choice. i think i respect homosexuals/bisexuals just for that, but that doesn't mean i automatically like them; at that point i would assess them as i do everyone else that i meet.

You're saying that there are two kinds of queers? One's that are only gay to have sex and one's that are "normal" people??

Hmm.. I dont think of them any different, unless they started making out right in front of me. Then again, if its girls, I dont think I would mind as much =. But if its men, it woudl probably depend on the situation. Because if I'm stuck on a elevator with two men making hot sexy love, I would probably kill myself or soemthing. Otherwise, I would walk away and just forget it.

Would you feel the same way if you were stuck on a elevator with two heterosexual people "making hot sexy love"?

If you would not feel like killing yourself because of their actions, then you DO feel differently about them.

People here use "gay" in California in reference to things that are just stupid or "not cool", so, unfortunately, I'm kinda immune to it by now.

Yeah, that's what they do here, too. Apparently, they think it's "funny" or they are "immune" to it as well.

It would be funny to see how many people would like the phrase "OMG U R SO CHRISTIAN!!!" I bet that would turn some heads for once.

Yay?
Things are not what they used to be; Missing one inside of me
Deathly lost, this can't be real; Cannot stand this hell I feel
Emptiness is filing me; To the point of agony
Growing darkness taking dawn; I was me, but now He's gone...
