We had a lesbian teacher come so we could talk to her and I found her story very interesting. She lived her whole High School years with boy friends and never even thought for a second she way gay. When she attented college, she realized the Gay Rights Association and read about it. She decided to become a lesbian and is where she stands today. I asked her that if it hadent been for the promotion that "Its ok to be gay" would she have been where she is today. She answered 'no'.
I feel our society or at least my neck of the woods...massachusetts...puts too much into "Its ok to be gay"
okay to be gay. It's a lifestyle. It won't harm you if someone else is gay. I think the difference is that without these types of associations, gay people don't
believe it's okay to be gay and therefore lead a closet life as a straight man or woman.
If it's their natural instinct to be attracted to the same sex, so be it. Let them do it. I mean, if a gay man comes on to me, I'd decline, as I personally am straight. But that's the same thing as if I hit on a lesbian (which has happened before). It's no big deal, you move on.
