Re: the homosexual thread
Fine! I'll go first!
-when did you know you were gay?
You don't necessarily "know." You just are. You have feelings and you look at males and are attracted to them beyond just their physical assets. I think all human beings are capable of it, it's just that homosexuals have a higher degree of understanding of sex. Take that as you will and swallow it hard. Sex is sex. It's not gay and it's not straight. Sure there's anal, oral, and a bunch of other types of sex, but you cannot define sex with labels and you certainly can't define a person by their sexual desires.
To answer your question
I knew I was "different" when I hit puberty and came to terms when I turned 16 years old.
-do you get a lot of anti-gay vibe at your school or where you work?
There are limited number of homosexual organizations on campus, but the community is growing and rising. Twice a year, homos and heteros come together and enjoy a drag show and various other activities at a club (it's sponsered by the biggest gay community on campus).
I don't ever really feel much tension, but I am usually in the studio not giving a shit about anyone.
My friend was gay bashed outside of a nightclub a couple of months ago. HATE CRIMES EXIST. Of course, not every town/city has enough education on how to handle these types of situations, so the case goes unsolved. SAD. REALLY SAD.
-i can't think of any more questions...but you get the idea.
Dave, are you coming out?
Ready and willing to flame if you are.
