I think it's no one's business what (or who) people do in the bedroom. It's really sad to see so many people turn on each other just because of that. Being gay is something you can't control, it's like being asian or being female. It's caused by a gene (the APA found the gene that caused it, it's not considered a mental disorder anymore).

I think it's worse to hide sexual orientation and live a lie than to just flat out be gay. The bible says it's wrong to have premarital sex and yet everyone does it. What about those teen pregnancies? I went to a Catholic school and one teacher said "Having premarital sex is wrong, but having an abortion after is worse"....so isn't it better to be gay and NOT lie about it than to do both?? At my Catholic school, everyone knew who was gay and we all got along with them. No one in the school made them feel bad for it, not even teachers or administrators. The nuns and priests were all very nice to them, loved them. I just don't understand why people are so hung up on this issue. Just live and let live. A person's sexual orientation has nothing to do you, so butt out.

Of course being Gay is not bad, but it is up to you when you feel comfortable sharing it with whoever. Don't feel pushed into anything.
