    The original thread appears to have stopped. Feel it is important for folks to see this entry on the topic.

    Natural or Choice?
    Like many of the folks on this string, I would imagine they have known more than one gay person well enough to at least call him an acquaintance. I had two real friends who were gay and have been around gays whenever I lived in a large city. I only asked two things: leave me out of it and don't suck tongues in public (I meant that as a joke and they took it that way).

    I am not sure a strong weight can be assigned to choice here. I will provide only one example that begs the question. If any of you saw Idol this week and the rendition of "Tracks of My Tears", by Adam Lambert, you may see what I mean.

    It was one of the most memorable renditions of that song I have ever heard. I was a musician in a former life and know good when I hear it. His performance brought tears to my eyes and seemed to have the same effect on Smoky.

    The probability of his being able to hit those fals the way he did were he not different from most men is nearly zero. Observing him, he may make use of it, but does not choose to have a feminine manner about him. And you can see in the wordliness he shows that this is not a new factor in his life.

    So, I may be putting too fine a point on this, but every gay man I have met with the exception of one, could only hope to hide who he is. In that he made a choice.

    My views on gay rights from an earlier post, however, stand.

    I am not sure what your point of view is on singers with high voices. I am pretty sure Frankie Valli is not gay.
    Scientists have not been able to prove one way or the other if homosexuality is biological.

    Ok. No problem. My point is only that it has never been clear to me that much about homosexuality, except hiding it, has to do with choice. The program was just what I saw as a good illustration.

    You'd have to be GAY to choose to practice heterosexual sex.

    That's so fucking obvious to every truly straight man that I find it sadly amusing to see closet cases trying to tell we heterosexual men otherwise.

    I suppose they imagine that if they can convince us we're choosing to be straight, they won't feel that self loathing which keeps forcing them to protest too much.

    When some loser man sets out to tell me how much he hates queers, all I can think is

    "Gee, what a bitch it must be for this guy to have to keep pretending to himself and anyone who will listen that he isn't queer"

    I watched one show. Honest. My neighbors cousin is that beat boxer frrom Bothell. He got second place cuz they made him sing a lame song. If I had known It would make me gay I would have never watched it. Is there a show you can watch that reverses the gay thing?

    Any type of gladiator movie should do the trick.
