*sigh* I love it on Devart, there are so few people who are prejeduce. I was on yahoo reading an article on the boy scouts and gay leaders, and man! the comments were just full of bitter hatred. kinda makes you sad, no?

Ho selezionato "normal", ma in realtÓ essere gay Ŕ, punto. XD Non ho invece selezionato "my way of life" perchÚ per me Ŕ una cosa abbastanza marginale da non essere considerata un modo di vivere o uno stile di vita, e non mi sento parte di una qualche "comunitÓ gay" o simili.

Mi spiego meglio: io non considero l'omosessualitÓ come qualcosa di "normale", io la considero come una cosa talmente... come dire, triviale da non meritare una parola che la definisca. E' pi¨ che normale, Ŕ intrinseca. In realtÓ, si Ŕ sollevato un enorme polverone su una semplice questione di gusti. Esempio mio: mi piacciono le persone di sesso maschile, con i capelli lunghi, scuri, gli occhi chiari e la pelle pallida. Sono gusti, preferenze assolutamente identiche dal punto di vista ideologico (sebbene nella pratica alcune siano pi¨ vincolanti di altre: i capelli lunghi sono negoziabili, il pisello no), per cui coniare una parola/categoria come "omosessuale" e contrapporla ad "eterosessuale" ha, ai miei occhi, lo stesso senso di "capellolungosessuale" contrapposto a "capellocortosessuale". Ovvero, il fatto che mi piacciano gli uomini Ŕ, oltre che una cosa strettamente personale da non avere ragione nÚ di essere denigrata, nÚ sbattuta in faccia agli altri, un dettaglio su cui Ŕ talmente stupido soffermarsi che trovo altrettanto stupidi sia il polverone discriminatorio, sia il discorso orgoglio qua e orgoglio lÓ, non lo ritengo una base sufficiente per creare un senso d'identitÓ culturale e nemmeno per definirmi.

Ecco, l'ho detto. XD

Beh. Normal è stato messo apposta per riassumere tutto questo. So perfettamente che è riduttivo e mi diverto a fare questi test soprattutto per capire l'opinione della gente che mi segue. Niente di che ^^

I said my way of life, but, actually it's quite difficult to have a way of life like this. It's difficult to be gay among homophobes T^T

I'm not, but a lot of my friend are. And honestly, I think they're the coolest people I know. Lol, especially my uncle. But yeah, I really don't see it as bad or anything. I think it's cool. If they can be happy, then by all means go for it.

Sometimes.... I wish for like... a day... everyone could just shut their eyes and talk to everyone else. (Or better yet on a computer because it's more general with no voices, accent or anything) Get into a conversation with someone knowing nothing about them, not what they look like, or ANYTHING about them. (And during the conversation not revealing details about you personally - appearance, sexuality, etc -, but just chatting, just general things...
Why?
You naturally come to conclusions about the people you meet/see, you don't intentionally judge them, but you do.
I wish everyone could do this and just meet people, just the idea of someone without anything attached to them, and see who that person is, with no labels or stereotypes or anything.
I think it would be interesting... if someone doesn't like a 'particular type of person' for some reason, then talked to someone with the qualities they didn't like, would they like that person for themselves? And would they change their mind once finding out about that person? (E.g. Even though they initially liked that person as a human, then change their mind and dislike them, just because of who they are.)
It's sad really... the way everyone is judged.
And it frustrates me sooo much.
The world is a very big influence.
... People need to learn to open their eyes.

(General statement)

It doesn't matter.
- It doesn't matter who you are, who you like/love/etc.

I get what people say when they disagree with homosexuality. - I understand in general why they think how they do.
I also get what people say when they are for it.
I'm pretty good at seeing both sides of things.
I don't think either are wrong, to like it or dislike it, it's up to people themselves how they feel, and they are allowed their own opinions, but I don't agree with the attitudes people have - When people are cruel just because they dislike who someone else is, (THAT'S wrong).
If you don't like something like someone's sexuality, that is none of your business. You can dislike it, you can hate it. But don't give them shit for it. Don't be an ass-hole just because you can.

I personally don't care what someone's sexuality is. It doesn't matter to me. It doesn't affect how I see them.
But I do support gay rights. I'm all for equality.
