Gay People.

Sun Jul 22, 2001 1:52 pm

There's been a lot of ho-hum about gay people on the forum lately. This isn't in response to any one thread, it's just sort of a general declaration:

In my experience, the average gay person is a bit friendlier than the average person in general. I'm hetero, but I find gay people to usually be quite friendly and easy to get along with even so.

Okay. That was fun.

Please, no more of this gay discussion. I have nothing against gays, but I've had enough of these threads. Take it to somewhere else.

Gay people are people. Just people, plain and simple. They are just as nice, just as mean, just as intelligent, just as stupid, just as big, just as small, just as fat and just as thin as anyone else.

There is no difference.

Ok?

Now let's stop these posts that are bound to become wars.

747-600X,

Thanks for your support mate. The sooner people do not describe us as different citizens or the like the better.

We are the same as you, same dreams, same desires and the same flesh and blood.

SSTJumbo,

If you don't like the gay threads then don't bother reading them. Do you have a real problem with that? Why is a gay thread offending you? Please tell me.

When we are accepted in society as "just like everyone else" then you won't see 'gay threads'.

Lots of big gay man love!

They're friendly. Brian (gay) on Big Brother in the UK seems friendly, and most people want him to win, even though he's gay. So to a lot of people it doesn't matter whether someone is gay or not.

RE: Gay People.

Mon Jul 23, 2001 1:07 am

OK. I was into writing something about homosexuality, since all the "gay posts" go finish into harsh language, insults and "war" in general. I wanted to post my opinion in Iluvmen2much's topic, but when I had a little time it had gone 150 threads so few people were going to read it. Then I decided to start a topic this kind but 747-600X "took off" before me. Doesn't matter. Anyway, thanks, 600x.

The first sentence I'd like to write on it goes to all the "gay haters".
Hey people: you have a big problem. Gays (OK: and lesbians. The topic tittle should be "homosexual") are normal people. Just they like things you maybe don't. That's all. Many immature people here just keep bashing anybody having different opinions. But in this subject there's something else: the hypocrite society call heteros "straight" and homos "inverted", "abnormal" and many other despective names. This thing about definitions comes from very long time ago, when brits (or then english, or saxonians, or whoever they were) called the dester side "right" (opposite from wrong) and the sinester (not sinister, OK?) "left" (opposite from taken).

If "homo" posts bother you, just do not loose your time reading them. That easy. Refrain yourselves from writing short silly sentences and go do something more productive like reading medical, psichological and self-helping books. Comes to my mind the possibility that many of you might be ashamed, self-repressed homos that do not want to accept your sexual orientation, and keep insisting on opposite sex partners, thus not being able to reach happiness, and projecting your anger against the ones who were brave enough to publicly proclaim their orientation.

Homosexuality is no longer considered a disease or a perversion. Some free countries (real socially free and not hypocrite, which is not the case of USA) even accept homosexual weddings, with EXACTLY ALL the SAME rights and debts for each other assumed by any "normal" hetero couple, even after one of them's death.

For those who call gays (actually the posts are mostly gay, maybe because lesbians have their relationship somehow easier: women usually embrace or kiss each other in public, dislike men) bad names, claiming that this is anti-natural, you should have a look to nature and see what kind of amusement some male animals have, walking on two legs, on four, or flying. So stop nonsense in the "anti-natural" way.

I remember Iluvmen2much's very first answer:
Topic: Coming Out Problems...
Username: UA767-223
Posted 2001-07-10 16:42:28 and read 933 times.
Why don't you save yourself all the aggravation and just go straight? You're young enough that you can learn new tricks.


What have you smoked pal? Do you think that this is something everyone decides to go for or not? I mean: you declare yourself, that you like (expensive) women. Are you aware of having ever decided to prefer women better that men? or this came to you inadvertedly? Have you ever thought that the qualificative "expensive" for women is, for many people, pretty worse (and especially offensive for women) than the one of "homosexual" is for you? If, personally, I were your girlfirend, would send you away right after I read your "user profile". By the way: reading your post I can understand why your list of "Respected by" is empty...

Another one was writing
Username: Mls515
Posted 2001-07-10 17:55:37 and read 862 times.

Iluvmen2much-

How about going over to the aviation forum and talk about airliners?



Hey Mls515, easy! This may be an aviation site, and seven out of eight forums are related to aviation. But this one is non-aviation. Can you understand what it means, or it is too much for your hetero mind?

People: the explanation on why there are so many gay posts in here is easy: in hypocrite societies, gays and lesbians live huge problems, even causing them psychologic trouble, in accepting a fact that is very badly considered, starting by themselves. When they discover they do not get any fun from partners of the opposite sex, and that they find it in the ones of their own, they have first big problem WITH THEMSELVES.

Here, they can find some "trustable" people (meaning serious, helpful, understanding and so on), and they have the anonymous "protection" of the "distance", meaning that they can ease their pains, concernings, stresses, even shames, without the fear of being discovered by their (sometimes) too strict parents and relatives, for calling them in a "politically correct" way.

Iluvmen2much:
You are having a problem. Your ingenuity has driven you to make it bigger. Maybe because you're a teen, you did not realize that teens (and why not tell it, very specially male teens), are not the best trust keepers. You'd have done better talking to your female pals, in this case. But what's been done doesn't go back. And, no matter what your dad thinks, I'm afraid the best solution, although the hardest one, is now for you go tell him BEFORE he learns it from someone else. It's gonna be hard, but hey, they're your parents. Thay love you, and they feel happy if you feel happy. After the shock, they'll see your happiness. And that'll be theirs:
A friend of mine (22) told his parents (59 & 61). His dad did not want to know about him for two months. After that, he was "normally" accepted to the family meetings, provided his partner was not going. For two years. Finally, every member of the family set his/her mind and said their thoughts. After that, the "new" couple (more than two years had passed, so not that new) was accepted without any kind of reserves. They got married. Now they are ALL happy.

Finally, whoever is offended by any kind of subject, would do much better just NOT READING IT rather than loosing their time. And very specially, NOT WRITING THEIR OWN STUPIDITY.

Hey there, those of you who feel offended by something, but anyhow you necessarily go and read it, maybe the sick ones are you yourselves...

As someone said above, this topic is already turning into a war again! Everybody posted his opinion about gays hundred times now, and there are different opinions. This topic will probably get 150 answers or so and then there will be the next one etc.
This endless discussion is getting senseless...

twotterwrench:
I'm sorry I disappointed you, pal. But, if you have read my post, I give him advice.

About my opinion, I don't consider it more or less valid than anyone's else. But when I write something I explain it, not just short silly sentences like some others do. That's the difference.

And I don't understand what's your idea of an opinion. But for sure sentences like "Why don't you save yourself all the aggravation and just go straight? You're young enough that you can learn new tricks." and How about going over to the aviation forum and talk about airliners? are not opinions.

JetService:
First of all you'll have to excuse me. I'm not that used into the Chats, and English is not my mother tongue. What does LMAO mean?

Then, you take my words out of context. The question "what have you smoked?" is to say "what do you mean" or "what makes you think this way". You can see that I respect everybody, provided they are respectful to the others. And UA767-223 does not.

I practice what I preach, as you say, whenever I have the opportunity. And in this case, I did, too. The post was about gay people, and I respect them and give my opinion and advice if they ask for it, just as you. But -223 came insulting gay people in general jsut because he thinks they are "abnormal" or "sick"

A part from that, if all -223's posts are the same kind, it is for sure that he will never be respected by anybody (except if you do it now for your pride once you defended him, or attacked me): at least the post of him I refer myself to, is not respectable at all. Or are you telling me that you do not agree? Furthermore, I highly doubt of the matureness of an individual who says he likes "expensive" women. What are they? Cargo? Material goods? Trading stuff?

Your information about who I consider "gay-haters" is not accurate. Actually, my "definition" it is pretty self-explanatory. They show themselves by the manner they speak to them.

My opinion does not count. Is not better nor worse. Is just mine and I defend it. But respectfully. I respect everybody's opinion PROVIDED IT IS REASONED. I respect everybody if they are able to explain what and why they think about any subject. With this I do not mean to be pro- or against- homos, neither to be against people who do not like homosexuality. But I am (and have the full right to be) against whoever hates whatever (both homos and heteros, for example) if they insult, disrespect, yell nonsense and bash. If you are in favor or against whatever, explain why, and I'll agree or disagree. But I will always respect you.

Finally, my post was also against people who feel offended by some topics, but keep on reading them, and then complain about the offence.

Do I really need to explain it again? Go some threads back and read carefully... That's all.

Abnormality...

Mon Jul 23, 2001 9:03 am

Okay okay...

Stop fighting - plain and simple. This thread was supposed to be a non-topic thing, just sort of "gay people are friendly as far as I can tell". Anyway, about abnormality:

Yes, being gay is abnormal. Nature certainly doesn't have much of a use for homosexuality given that it doesn't produce anything. That I know of it is a human phenomena. The point of the matter is that there's nothing wrong with being abnormal. I've been called weird, strange, and some other words not to be listed in my day and it's a lot easier to say, "Yeah I'm weird - at least I'm unique" than to get all hurt about it. So... who cares if it's abnormal? ACCORD says "Packing fudge ain't normal."

Tell me, ACCORD, does that scare you?

"Packing fudge"

I haven't heard that in a while!!

"Gays are a nuisance, they get you feeling sorry for them and then expect you to laugh when your girlfriend gets her tits out for them."

Bwahahahahah... I don't think I have ever done that. Must try it some time. Cripes!

SSTJumbo,

If you are going to critisize the quality of the homo threads then please take a long look at any of the other threads that are controversial or tackle political topics. You find the same mud slinging, wars and general strive with people who have differing opinions.

One of the things about homosexuality is that we are still descriminated against. How would you feel if you knew there was large groups of the populations who do not believe you deserve to live let alone have a life like everyone else.

Unlike people of different races, we are not always that apparent. People who make insulting comments about homosexuals are often heard by the very people they are vilifying - the problem is the people doing do not even realise they are hurting someone. These are the same people who would probably say 'nigger' (or such) to friends but would not dare do it to someones face.

As I said - take a look at some of the other threads.

Joona and America West summed it up perfectly in the first three posts.

I don't give a toss whether someone is gay or not, as long as they don't try and ram their views down my throat. Live and let live that's me but I too am sick to death of seeing 'Gay' threads here. I like gravy on my chips (french fries) but have I started a thread about it?

It has developed into the flaming, arguing and fighting described by America West.

If you are gay and happy about it don't feel you have to share it with the world. If you want to do that, I am sure there are 'specialist' websites you can frequent.

I'll do this whether I agree with the person they are misrepresenting or not. I also can't stand when people berate another for not being 'tolerent' of others' opinions, then turn around and rake them over the coals for their opinion; often within the same post!!!!! So I call them as I see them. Good conversation can come out of a disagreement; it really can.

OK...I'll make a deal with you guys who are pissed off with the supposed "gay" threads.

Stop talking about Pamela Anderson's tits, and what you would like to do to Britney Spears, and rubbish like that, and we will stop talking about gay issues.

Right...that ain't going to happen now is it guys, so you will have to put up with us.

So...any of the boys out there got any lists of famous people they would like to "do".

Here is mine for a start:

Matthew McConnaughey
Ewan McGregor
Hugh Jackman
Casper Van Dien

There are plenty more, but those are the top of my list at the moment.

Every one is entitled to their opinion. You don't like the topic, you don't read, end of that story.

So let's see what happens with this one!
I'm, been, will be 50/50 straight/gay. I would love to read your comments on this. I'am BI, very proud of it and NO... I'm in my 30's and will never pick a side.  Insane

C'mon.... I'd like to see all ignorant, racist, educated, straight, gay, girls and boys etc. opinions on Bi-sexuality. It's not a GAY topic and it's not STRAIGHT topic.

This is getting too much. Too much emphasis being put on it by both ends of the ideological spectrum, too much BS being spouted, too much fighting, and too much ignorance. Way too much.

I'd love it if most of the threads were anecdotal, and weren't set upon by cyber-warlords who ruin the entire thread by creating flame wars, which I am sad to say I have been brought into myself. I'm totally open to having a civil discussion involving facts, but alas, it can't seem to happen.

If you don't have a positive opinion of gay people, don't interrupt neutral threads involving homosexuality, or start threads that you know will obviously create controversy or further stereotypes. That won't help in any way. How about...not paying attention to it?

Oh well, enough of my rambling. Moving on to lighter subjects...

I think the gay posts that keep coming up make this board interesting. All sides of the argument are heard without the posts getting to far out of hand, haven't seen to many get deleted recently.
If users don't like to see gay posts just don't read them.

Was a slip I'm afraid.

Have been studying quite a few of the recent posts and have come to the conclusion that this website is probably the best Forum for those that want to 'out' themselves or talk about gay issues. I'm surprised we talk about serious aviation issues at all here.

Plane Spotting, train spotting...it's all the same really. You only have to look at the viewing areas of some airports to see the kind of people who frequent them. Loads of spotty kids or 'dodgy' looking fat blokes with spotty kids hanging onto their every word. Go onto the Queens Building at Heathrow and tell me I'm wrong.

So in summary, I can't think of a better website than an aviation one where gays can air their views, sad but true.

If you don't wanna hear about gay people then why are you hanging around gay posts? A case of J.Edgar.Hooverism, maybe. Or, perhaps, yet another example of some fat gross straight guy who pours way too much gravy on his chips and pissed off because we look better, dress better, have higher levels of education, and could probably attract some hot babe in a micro-mini in a New York minute if we wanted to, while the rest of you straight dunces pay $ 5.99 a minute to see Pam Anderson's silicone implants on the internet.
