Get on your knees like you are proposing, open a ring box with a rainbow flag in it, and say, "Will you......Accept the fact that I am gay?"

Tell them that you were trapped in your closet that morning, but you just escaped. They may catch on.

Wait till you're 16. Then, when you're testing your new car out since you got your drivers permit you part and say, "I'm straight. Or at least my parking job is."

Tell someone that the two of you are very different. When they ask how, say, "Well, you're straight.

Bring home a partner and kiss them right in front of your parents :P

Somebody screamed "that's gay," in class one day and I screamed back, "So am I." That's how I came out at school.

Lol

@PetersSmith: Did you actually do that or did you make that up?
TBR says2015-04-29T08:45:26.6766916-05:00
Anyway that feels right.
PetersSmith says2015-04-29T12:04:56.2493026-05:00
The "ring" one doesn't really apply because you're not "proposing" to your parents and your partner would already know you're gay if you're dating them.
PureLogic says2015-04-29T15:59:49.4484605-05:00
@PeterSmith Not actually proposing with the ring one. It is just a joke from proposing, because you are just telling them who you could marry in the future.

Who added the "pray the gay away" answer? Whoever did it, please don't anymore. This poll is for fun, not an argument.
PureLogic says2015-04-30T15:50:33.0675743-05:00
Also the suicide one. That answer is horribly rude.
PureLogic says2015-04-30T23:48:26.0122402-05:00
@Rhodesia79 I have reported the suicide poll answer you created. Try to think before you post things like that.
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-05-01T08:33:18.3115665-05:00
"This poll is for fun, not an argument." Don't you think it's a little too soon to start making fun out of this affliction?
PureLogic says2015-05-02T00:18:24.6440418-05:00
@FreedomBeforeEquality How is it too soon? Acting casually about it can actually help kids to come out of the closet. Making it sound fun would not cause them more fear.
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-05-04T15:24:37.6352824-05:00
So it persuades people that it's ok to participate in that lifestyle? All the more reason not to joke about it, right?
PureLogic says2015-05-04T17:01:19.8869200-05:00
How is being gay a lifestyle? Some people don't even want to be in a relationship. Joking can just ease their fears, it's not persuading anyone to do anything
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-05-05T07:10:01.4919737-05:00
I think I rather prefer the fear of doing something degenerative to be present. If fear can dissuade, then I don't see how a sudden lack of fear and consequence doesn't persuade some.
PureLogic says2015-05-05T15:51:33.9891545-05:00
A lack of fear only persuades people to be happy. There is no reason to hide yourself just so others can feel better.
TheHappyReaper says2015-05-06T12:16:33.5411571-05:00
Stab all of the things
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-05-07T04:42:21.2822660-05:00
You can be plenty happy with some fear around. Removing all fear is impossible for one, and secondly is destructive to future generations. Past generations establish fears through example (making their mistakes and the rest of us learning from it, then we can fear it and let that lesson dissuade us in the future). You're destroying that whole education dynamic when you continuously remove these barriers and tell people to 'make their own mistakes' again and again All because you don't think its ok to apply knowledge that wasn't won firsthand.
PureLogic says2015-05-07T16:01:56.0901010-05:00
Past generations have never accepted gay people, and the few religions that did had no problems. There is no past knowledge telling us that being gay is bad.
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-05-08T09:51:07.3430664-05:00
But you just said past generations have never accepted gay people ...
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-05-08T09:51:34.2885558-05:00
Past knowledge = past generations.
PureLogic says2015-05-08T15:56:01.5248872-05:00
How do we know that past generations are right? People used to think that earth was the center of the galaxy, but they were proved wrong. I meant that gay marriage rights have never caused problems to society, so we have nothing telling us that it is bad.
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-05-26T08:24:11.5780517-05:00
"I meant that gay marriage rights have never caused problems to society, so we have nothing telling us that it is bad." Never? I wouldn't go that far. But i'll agree with you that you have nothing telling you that it is bad ... That's really the problem here. That effect, being sheltered from the bad, that's entirely artificial I promise you. I really don't think you'll be hailed as a Magellan for having to rediscover this concept again.
