Why would they be desperate for attention?
Haroush says2015-10-07T03:14:20.9858093Z
It is a legitimate question. The LGBT community is so pressed on seeing celebrities being gay they have started to assume so many celebrities are gay including Taylor Swift. Then to make matters worse, the ones that are gay, they pressure to be openly gay to support their agenda. An example of this is Jillian Michaels.

Why is Rand Paul shown as the picture is what I'm wondering.

Your polls get more bazaar day by day
briantheliberal says2015-10-07T04:02:23.9693293Z
No, but clearly you are Haroush.
Bu says2015-10-07T04:28:45.1077947Z
Neither. I would choose the option that is in the middle of these two, leaning towards desperate.
Forthelulz says2015-10-07T05:51:42.1190814Z
Are people being stereotyped?
Haroush says2015-10-07T12:35:33.0611150Z
Ironic. No one can dispute my most recent comments.

Gay people with the most exposure (reality TV shows, celebrities, etc) are definitely desperate for attention, everything about their behavior shows it loud and clear. But there are a lot of gay people who go about simply living their lives without that need for attention. I think the ones who have chosen to be in the limelight, if not gay, would have found another way to be in that limelight, and some even chose to be gay for that attention. More to do with their personality rather than their gayness. As to what the percentages are, of gays who seek attention and those who don't, I have no idea. But there have always been gay people, and the attention seeking didn't seem to arise until the media created the idea of being a "star" over being gay.
Haroush says2015-10-07T13:17:05.6548500Z
@Idoubtit, I think the ones which are leading this attention seeking revolution are those LGBT leaders at college campuses. Especially the college campuses with a STRONG politically liberal leaning.
idoubtit says2015-10-07T13:42:37.9631169Z
@Haroush, I won't dispute that. When I went to college, the idea was to look at everything, evaluate the evidence, decide for ourselves. Neutral. The focus on learning how to think. From everything I've seen reported in a wide variety of media, it appears that many institutes of higher education have been taken over by those with a very pronounced agenda, thinking not allowed in case it differs from the agenda. I would say that maybe that's not so, you know how it's always the worst to hit the media, but it seems like colleges that don't follow the far left are always being attacked by the far left.

I don't like the generalization that all homosexuals are that way. There are some, but not all act in a manner of being "desperate" for attention.
MizzEnigma says2015-10-07T14:33:28.9605888Z
It wouldn't let me comment for some reason. So, that's why I voted the way I did.
TBR says2015-10-07T15:01:21.7232378Z
@Haroush - I have no concern over the examples you have given (the ones no one dare dispute). It seems your argument is coming down to "attention seeking people are attention seeking". If you are trying to make a name as a celebrity, you by definition are attention seeking, gay or straight.
Haroush says2015-10-07T15:01:54.7950258Z
@Mizz, You should realize I am using media studies techniques. Just like quite a few others do on here. If you are observant, you will see many media studies techniques used on this site.
TBR says2015-10-07T15:02:04.3733644Z
But... Let me ask a question of you. Lets say it was true, why would you care?
MizzEnigma says2015-10-07T15:08:30.3514903Z
Mass media is mass media. TBR already said what I would have said in reply to your response. Attention seekers are attention seekers. Claiming "Are homosexuals desperate for attention" (which is a generalized question) is what I replied too. Being "observant" of the effects mass media has, or homosexuals appearing in mass media, is irrelevant to the general question. I couldn't give my reply in the comment for my vote, therefore I placed it down here. They are not "desperate for attention." Majority are just trying to live their life void of being made to feel like they're disgusting, etc. They just want normal lives. Desperate for attention? No. Some? Maybe. Attention seekers are attention seekers.
allaamr says2015-10-07T18:51:42.7165749Z
It really depends on the person. So you should put another polling option, "depends on who they are".
Black-Jesus says2015-10-07T20:15:36.0849336Z
^That would require nuance, and therefore painting the world with a more accurate brush.
briantheliberal says2015-10-08T00:49:54.3062170Z
TBR, I thought I was the only one who thought he protested too much? Me thinks he's a closeted bundle of sticks...
TBR says2015-10-08T01:25:24.3939971Z
"closeted bundle of sticks..." - NICE!!!!
tajshar2k says2015-10-08T01:47:29.5302800Z
Well, there are some guys who are like that. I can't really say that for every gay person. I do agree it sometimes gets annoying with those "I'm proud to be gay shirts". I don't really care man...
TBR says2015-10-08T03:18:51.3442082Z
Ever meet a women who was "girly" or a man who was "macho"? Why not call them out?
stainless67 says2015-10-11T22:12:30.1654998Z
I'm going to say this for probably the 100th time now, I dont mind what consenting adults do with themselves behind closed doors and I have no prejudice towards the LGBT community. Just lie what marylin manson said I dont encourage anyone to just choose sexualties. I see people like lady gaga and miley cyrus I think they exploit their orientation for vanity. Thats what i have a problem with.
yetifivepecks says2015-10-24T21:27:57.4757676Z
Some are, but it has little to do with their sexuality. I would venture to say that bigots are far more desperate for attention.
