"Homosexuality was invented by a straight world dealing with its own bisexuality." - Kate Millett
A study showed that 14% of females are bisexual. Have you ever felt the urge towards a member of the opposite sex? Did you act on it?

What do you think our society thinks about gay people these days?
asked in homosexual, popular opinion

Not me. Not ever. I have always asserted that I was a lesbian trapped in a man's body in reference to my affection for the female form. There is no finer sight in this world than a good looking woman! As far as society's perception of homosexual people, I think that most people have been fairly open-minded and accepting of gay couples. As with everything, there are some people who just can't accept this fact as a part of modern life and culture. These are the same people who probably think that slavery should be reinstituted and that the movie Driving Miss Daisy should be the employee training tape for aspiring black chaueffers. Homosexual people should lead whatever life they choose and should be free from persecution and discrimination. This is 2008 after all!

I find that very strange. 14% of females are bisexual - that means 86% are not, not even a little bit, not at all. The whole quote seems nonsense to me because it is suggesting that all straight people are also bisexual.
In my view it goes like this :-
- There are 100% straight people
- there are 50/50 bisexuals
- there are 100% gay people
In between you get almost every other preference on the spectrum. I certainly would not try to suggest the majority are in any specific place on that spectrum.

The term 'Homosexual' used to be a pejorative term - not any longer, I think.

Many ancient societies had no word for gay/lesbian.

It had to be invented when Judeo/Christian morals asserted that it was not natural.

I think most people have had urges towards the same sex and a lot of probably acted on them even if it is out of curiosity. I think people who react in an obviously negative way probably do it because they are not comfortable with their own sexuality and dont want to be reminded of that fact. If someone is truely comfortable with who they are and their own sexual preferences how can they find other peoples offensive?
