Is it Bad to be Gay? (Please keep religion out of this)

Asked by: SMcBride01
  • As a guy wed to another guy, yes it is.

    My groom and I have been wed for over ten years, and again a second time once it was made legal. That being said, I was raised by my mother, a lawyer and a bit of a feminist, to be open to the possibility of being gay. I did, however date only women for the longest time. About twelve years ago, after another failed heterosexual relationship, I made a conscious decision to seek out and find who eventually became my groom. I asked HIM out. I, before too long, proposed marriage to HIM. Next thing I know, we're in tuxes, walking arm in arm down the aisle in front of a lot of people, some of them quite shocked! We had a second, equally formal, wedding when gay marriage was made legal. I'd not leave this relationship since I made an adult decision to commit, but were I able to do things differently? Were I raised differently? Certainly, I'd do things differently. Plus, since I've been very publicly and very formally wed to another guy - TWICE - I don't think there'd be any point trying to "switch" to being straight now!

  • Yes it is!!!

    Being gay is bad and extremely unnatural. It does not exist without the twisted minds of people. They seek acceptance and blinded to morals that keep them on track. I believe that all people should be judged by their character, but being gay is a huge stain on your character. It says that you reject laws of nature that say a male and female of the same species shall mate. It proves their is a hindrance on your sound judgement. It says that you'll reject the truth no matter how much evidence and proof is presented. It says that you have no respect for the beautiful body you were given. Being gay is not the way you are. It is the way you choose when you mix up the importance of acceptance and respect.

  • Abnormality is bad.

    There are a few different claims on the cause of homosexuality like genetic, environmental, and mental conditions. It has been common practice that if people have abnormal conditions from these or other sources, measures are taken to correct this condition because it may have a negative impact on the person with it. Clearly this condition does hinder their ability to have a normal family life (husband, wife,kids, and grand-kids). Ways should be found to correct this condition.

  • “Bad” is so vague and open to interpretation.

    It may not be morally bad or even unnatural from an evolutionary perspective. But you could consider it bad like being autistic is bad; meaning if you had the choice most would not chose to be gay. Instinctively most would choose not to be gay because they realize the benefits of being part of a majority and not a minority. If you still aren’t convinced, being gay makes you statistically more likely to: commit suicide, suffer from substance abuse, be the victim of physical spousal abuse, be the victim of a hate crime, to have a spouse that cheats on you...Just to name a few. I have a lot of sympathy for anyone gay because it can be a hard road, one I would not want to travel.

  • Should unhealthy food be banned in restaraunts.

    I think unhealthy food should not be banned because once in a while kids should have unhealthy food. Unhealthy food makes kids hiper. Kids don't feel that sleepy and they have more energy. I think unhealthy food should not be banned.Kids need energy to run and play and study. I hope you think so too.

  • Its ok to be gay

    Have you been gay before! I think not! Being gay is not bad in any way no laws are being broken so it is not wrong. Age is just a number, sister is just a title and prison is just a place and no is just a word. Prove me wrong

  • It is a internally consistent argument

    Mortality has many metrics and systems, natural law theory states that you should propagate, utilitarianism is iffy you can argue both ways, deantollogy or the cognitive imperative states the entirety of a society can't do this and survive, Aristotelian thought states the body has a essence that being reproduction. Then we get into metaethics, this is were you can find leeway if you take a culturally relativist course any culture that allows homosexuality, allows it and its not bad, but under that course a culture that burns homosexuals at the stake doing that is good.

  • Well for society, it is

    Gay people cause stupid debates like this. If you want to be gay then be gay (because it’s within your rights) but just know that you cause problems. It may not be your choice but that doesn’t mean that you won’t slow down reproduction, cause stupid debates and generally be a blemish on our society.

  • Confused, confused, confused. There's a lot about the LGBTQ community that doesn't make sense. In fact there are some huge contradictions.

    1)
    Lets look at the concept of homosexuality from a scientific or evolutionary point of view. Evolution would've eliminated any homosexual tendencies in any species of animal. Evolution was all about passing on favourable traits, through procreation, that enabled a species to survive changing environments. But 2 homosexual males couldn't reproduce and pass on homosexual tendencies, same for 2 homosexual females.

    So how is homosexuality a natural thing if it wasn't produced by the process that gave us all the species of animals on the earth, including humans? Procreation is the way a species ensures it's own survival. Homosexuals are unable to naturally procreate, therefore there are unable to naturally ensure the survival of the human race.
    2)
    Back in 2008, the media was a buzz for a few months about a scientific study that found something different in the brains of homosexuals from heterosexuals. This was interpreted to mean that homosexuality is therefore a natural thing.
    But similar studies done on the brains of pedophiles and serial killers around the same time with the same results: there is something in the brains of pedophiles that make them sexually attracted to little kids. Like wise, there's something in the brains of serial killers that gives them pleasure from killing other human beings.

    I see a huge contradiction there! What makes one result natural and the other two results in need of some kind of treatment?
    3)
    Then we come to the transgender element. The 'T' in LGBT, so they're part of the same community. Science says you can't change your gender.
    DNA only has 2 chromosomes that represent male and female. DNA can't be changed.
    Women have a different pelvis and a different angle at the elbows from men.
    And there's also the fact that A MAN WHO TRANSITIONS TO A 'WOMAN' CAN NOT GIVE BIRTH, OR MENSTRUATE because modern science can not put a womb into a male body and have that womb produce eggs.
    All science does is give the person an outward appearance of womanhood. But on the inside, all the fundamental female body are missing.

    On the other hand, WOMEN WHO TRANSITION FROM FEMALE TO MALE ARE GIVING BIRTH. Because they still have all the internal parts that make a woman a woman.
    4)
    So back in 2008, science was the praised for 'proving' that homosexuality is natural and therefore legitimate. A couple of years later, the transgenders insisted that there must be more than two genders. However, science has always disagreed because of the reasons I mentioned above. As a result, trans people insist that biology is wrong and there are multiple genders.
    So if science is RIGHT about lesbian, gay and bisexual part of the LGBT community, what's the criteria you use to determine that science is WRONG about the transgender part of that community.
    Or, if science is WRONG about the 'T' in LGBT, what standard did you use to determine that science is RIGHT about the 'L,' the 'G' and the 'B?'

  • No, it is not

    Being gay is not bad. It is just the way you are. No one chooses who they will fall in love with. Similarly, no one chooses their skin color, their hair color, their gender, etc. Some people will call it unnatural, but everything is unnatural depending on your perspective, right?

    All in all, gay people are fine, don't judge someone on their sexual orientation, but judge them on their character.

  • Of course not

    Being gay is as natural as being straight. It is not chosen, nor is it unnatural. That is evident by the amount of species in which we have observed homosexuality and gay behavior. If animals incapable of rational and logical thought can be gay, there is no compelling argument to suggest the contrary. Science is entirely in favor of gay people being normal and fine.

  • Gey is litty

    Yeeeeeee my bro i just need the 50 word counter thing to go down to zero but yeah being gay isnt even a choice like im in 8th grade and im more mature than these redneck ass 50 year olds jesus they are the ones that need to grow up :)

  • It's not bad to love

    We could say that it's bad to steal, it's bad to kill, but how could we say it's bad to love. Those people being gay or lesbian, they also know this kind of thing could not be accepted by all the people even by their parents. But they still choose to love. It's not only not bad, but also very brave. Reality could be changed but love prevails.

  • You people on the yes side are STUPID

    Why should being gay be bad. It whatever makes the person happy. If you don't think that the you are extremely rude. Plus many famous people are gay AHEM* NEIL PATRICK HARRISON he's gay and married and has two kids. It's stupid that gay became an insult to like 3 year-olds

    Yeeeeeee my bro i just need the 50 word counter thing to go down to zero but yeah being gay isnt even a choice like im in 8th grade and im more mature than these redneck ass 50 year olds jesus they are the ones that need to grow up :)

  • Gay is ok

    As a gay male, I believe it is extremely important not to judge someone on their sexual orientation, but instead on the character. It shouln't matter who I choose to love. Being gay is not a choice. As the queen Lady Gaga once said - "I was born this way"

  • No, its not

    The main reason that gays were and still discriminated against is because it goes against the Christians and creationists sky daddy who says that homosexuality is a sin, they even made a bunch of messed up conversion camps for those who are gay, this is just sad, so no its not wrong to be gay, your non existent sky daddy is wrong.

This debate was really stupid

Why is it stupid?
WHISKERSBEARD says2018-05-16T13:58:48.683
I don't think this was stupid probably just someone asking their opinions on the person possibly being gay. I stand for the no side idk why anyone would say yes
SMcBride01 says2018-05-17T01:34:28.013
@WHISKERSBEARD Thanks for the support! I was just curious about what others think, without religion being involved because in all the other Opinions like this, the side that is anti-gay always brings up the Bible and God and stuff. I just wanted some secular reasoning, if that makes sense.

Gays tend to get diagnosed with HIV more often then straight people. It could be due to the fact that the homosexuals do homosexual things like gay sex which might be more likely to spread STDs then straight sex.
