Thread: Why are gays so screwed up?

  1. Default Why are gays so screwed up?

    Mental disorders
    Depression
    Substance abuse
    Unprotected sex
    Etc...

    Homosexuals are subject to more than their fair share.

    Why?




    IMO: Lack of role models and support networks are the primary causes. Bullying can play part, but fact is many (most) homosexuals can avoid bullying by hiding their sexuality. But in this process, they lose the opportunity to gain a support network, to talk with people about their emotional and medical needs particular to their lifestyle. They lack role models and guidance. In their efforts to hide who they are, they isolate themselves what what support network they have, and they risk developing secretive, unguided, rebellious and unhealthy practices.

    It's a number of things.

    Lack of role models is a big one. The youth coming up that realize their sexuality don't have anyone to emulate or to learn from. Part of that is really that the gay culture doesn't have many big names to choose from. There are some that are coming up and are making real names for themselves but not many.

    Hate speech and bullying are also major disadvantageous. Kids learn young that being gay sets you apart and makes you someone who is hated. What's more in many places the school system has legitimized that feeling by making it against policy to correct students that area bullying gay students. "Neutrality" policies have made teachers fear correcting, stopping, or intervening, on the bullying of gay students for fear of it being interpreted as "encouraging" homosexuality. It's basically become okay to bully gay students in some places and that's just sickening.

    It hasn't just "become" that way. It has always been that way. Homosexuality goes against mainstream America's moral convictions. What do you expect open arms? LMAO

    Most homosexuals tend to be disgustingly beta and it is the natural instinct of at least males, to establish dominance over betas.

    The reason homosexuals are at the bottom of the social heap is because (if you take the "born that way" hypothesis as true) born as weak beta personalities just begging to be dominated.

    It sounds as if he's trying to justify bullying.

    Quite possibly. He has a history of advocating violence in this forum.

    I don't think it goes against the mainstream today. The mainstream has already switched direction and is flowing towards acceptance. Those who oppose LBGT equality are the ones pushing against said flow these days, and that's a trend that's only going to continue as the older generations die out.

    As for you characterising gay people as having "beta" personalities - I know a fair few gay people in successful jobs and positions of power. There are also many you don't know about because they haven't come out yet. And the gay community cannot be criticised for just taking it lying down - otherwise SSM would be a non-issue! The only thing they haven't done, as some other minorities have, is get violent about it.

    Take a look at the US. You have right wing politicians claiming that it's a Christian right to bully children who appear to be homosexual.

    Homosexuality where there is an obsession to have sex in parks and bathrooms with strangers...risky sex is different then homosexuality where its the fad in college to be lesbian because its cool.

    Unfortunately..risky sex is in my opinion promoted in the gay world...as a normal part of being gay. That doesn't help mental well-being of people who might be a bit confused anyway.

    Homosexuality is a mental disorder, that can be triggered by sexual abuse in childhood, and often leads to drug abuse, suicide and other self-destructive behavior.

    Homosexual activists often blame their drug abuse and promiscuity on discrimination and intolerance. But studies of homosexuals in more tolerant nations like Holland have found this not to be the case.
