Homosexuality a trend?

Postby German-Spanish Empire » Wed Jul 31, 2013 4:19 pm

Hey NSG! After doing to some observation I have come to the conclusion that homosexuality is somewhat of a trend. Now before you start calling me all types of assholes,please,here me out on this!

It's fair to say that in the "olden" days,homosexuality was well,not acceptable among family. It's also fair to say that since the beginning of the new millennium that homosexuality has somewhat skyrocketed among teens. Now let's all admit that at one point in time we all went through a phase of some sort. Weather it be, being goth or something of that nature, then we sort of grew out of it.

Nowadays kids think that homosexuality is...cool! Let's look at one video:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lJGuMEZhxgY. Since when did homothug among children become...cool?

Even teachers are against it.

But I know many of us have different opinions so please:

No.
It's simply that people can be gay without being either six feet under or six feet into the closet nowadays.

And at one point being black was considered a curse. Tolerance does not make something a trend.

I find many homosexual people quite cool. Some of my favourite people (mostly actors in this case) are homosexual. The society I live in is reasonably tolerant of homosexuality. Nonetheless, the idea of myself having sex with another man is still rather repulsive to me. So using myself as an example, no, homosexuality is not a trend.

There used to be a time in many cultures where homosexuality was quite acceptable, even normal, to be a part of one's love life. Just look at Classical Greece or Rome.
If nothing exists, where did this anger come from?

Well, yes. They suppressed/hid their feelings until they felt safe from being persecuted because of them. This is not unexpected.

No, it can't be. No one chooses their sexuality.

And diseases were once caused by imbalances in the bodily humours. I don't really care what medical science "used" to call something, modern psychology has determined that being gay isn't a mental illness.

Or perhaps... they felt pressured to live a 'normal' lifestyle according to society until they just couldn't do it anymore. My source, you say? The gays that I know in this area, at least 4 of them have kids, have all described the same conclusion. Yet they are still incredible parents, because they've taken responsibility for their children's lives even though they've decided to pursue what they've truly felt in their hearts.

No.

Egalitarian homosexuality was only particularly accepted among the Celts and the Scandinavians.

The Greeks and Romans just ignored some particular kinds of homosexuality, out of their generally repressive patriarchal beliefs and culture.

Do you have any idea what kind of attention coming out attracts, especially in very religious communities?

It isn't the good kind of attention.
