Gay

So hope everyone are doing fine. The past week has been pretty hectic for me, thanks to some unrealistic schedules and mismanagement by the Manager. It has been pretty taxing. I appreciate the people who take up the pressure day-in, day-out.

This subject has been there in my mind for a pretty long time. I was talking to a friend when he told me about a real life incident involving his doctor friend in UK.

The doctor friend was there in some council in UK which determined the eligibility of a couple who applies for adoption. It such happened that a gay couple applied for adoption. The doctor friend opposed it and openly said that she wouldn’t support a gay couple growing a child. She was the only one in the council to oppose. She was soon removed from the council and life became difficult for her to practice medicine.

What do you think? Do we support gay rights, just because it has become fashionable to do so. Long ago Paul wrote against prevalent homosexual practices in areas surrounding Greece. Soon church demonized homosexuality. There is no denying that hierarchy of church was free of perversions.

It was not just Christianity- Judaism and Islam too abhorred the practice. But with the dawn of new era of liberalization, the dogmas has been thrown up in the air confusing the lay man of his beliefs.

So what do you guys think? Is homosexuality a choice or something natural that comes with your birth? If it’s a choice do you think there is anything at all called freewill?

If you are a supporter of homosexuality, is it because you are really convinced by it?

i've never actually thought about questioning a person's right to follow their natural desires.
i can see why in other times, such as at the founding of certain anti-gay religious beliefs, people might be generally against homosexuality because it doesn't produce more humans. in the interest of continuing the species, humans were very interested in procreation.
in modern times, i think part of why more and more people are instinctually open to homosexuality is that, right now the world is overpopulated and it's in the best interest of our species that we not always be procreating.

Like Lovkyne, I have not questioned the sexualities of individuals. I think it is personal choice of individuals.
John, my thesis is on transgenders so homosexuality is definitely part and parcel of the study. Do you still want to know whether I support it?

Well, . . .

Joy always,
Susan

P. S: I have three posts on this subject, you can check them out, if it interests you.

I would be uncomfortable if someone I knew was gay. Yet, I feel sorry that they are discriminated against. I think, a gay is born with that sexual preference just like straight people like us.

Destiny's child... said...

I think there are people who are born gay and I think there are others who are just perverse. It is unfair to discriminate against the gay but I just can't bring myself to say 'to each his own' any more. What if I have kids who are gay? I think it would hurt me beyond measure.

Jon said...

Buttercup...i am of the view of Destiny..there are people who turn gay 'cos of the fun of preversity. And that cannot be said the right choice.
Rachna...but when it comes to a choice that affects a third person like adoption they should have limitations
