How does your priest treat you? and how do you feel? Just curious.

I am not gay, I do like women -- but I have told my priest about feelings of same sex attraction in the past.  He has never treated me any differently from anyone else.  The fact of the matter is, many people have this urgent need to be accepted due to their sexuality and this is a mistaken approach.  The religion of the "Self" which has promoted the increase in secularism, and moral relativism in today's age has got to stop at some point.

I am queer as a three dollar bill.  I have spent 51 years in the hell of being a lesbian in a man's body.  My Priest is OK with it, so that is at least a plus.

What makes you think so? I've never really understood what people mean when saying that everyone's a bit gay. Do they perhaps mean that their liver is sexually attracted to people of same sex as they are while their kidneys are not?

- I am not repelled by pictures of some handsome males, I sometimes enjoy looking at males I consider handsome (in aesthetic way, not in the pornographic one)
- I do not share some typical male hobbies or interests (motorisation, team sports etc.)
- I like music associated with gay culture (Village People, TomBoy, Culture Club...) and glam rock.
- I support gay rights (civil uniions, child adoption etc.) provided they do not try to reach religious institutions.
- Some of my friends asked me or my other friends whether I'm gay.

- On the other hand I am sexually attracted to females, hence the 20%.

I'm sorry but that sounds pretty much like suggesting reading Newton's theories about physics and Lamarck's theories about evolution. Assuming that they were scientific to begin with, a bit outdated.

since we all have both male and female hormones. That actually makes us bisexuals though, not Gay. People are born bisexuals in my opinion. Not Gay. But then again. That is subjective.

Sorry brother, but you are going to have to speak for yourself on that one.

I can absolutely say I am 0% gay without a doubt in my mind.
I do not see "attractive males" or look at their photos where I don't mind...  I can't depict really.   On Yahoo sometimes I see stuff posted as "the new sexiest man" and a photo on their main site... I'm like huh?  How can they see this?

I am grossed out by gay anything.  Males holding hands even (in a gay fashion).  Hugs that are just not manly at the wrong time.  There are even certain gestures gay men make that weird me out (how their eyes want to eat me - LOL).

Typical male stuff isn't needed.  I like motors okay... Not a nascar guy or anything.  Sports don't watch them.  I do have go-karts that I fix with my sons.  We also chunk axes at wood chunks... I guess those are kind of manly.  We shoot guns, BB/Pellet & real guns around here.   I don't mind helping out my wife with knitting on occasion if she needs it.  I also like to cook, which I guess can be male or female interest.

I can truly say that I have never once been attracted or felt attraction to a male.

My sense of style is nil.   I'd wear a hole filled T-Shirt and ancient jeans if my wife would let me.   I can't stand shopping for clothes, and will wear whatever she buys for me just to save myself the torture of clothes shopping.

A real hell for me would be an endless landscape of clothing racks, shoe racks, fabric bolts, and fashion accessories... for eternity...  Like an endless Macy's with racks to a vanishing point.    Sad Sad Sad Sad

Perhaps he thinks if he admits that a man is good looking, then people will wonder if he's gay? I dunno if I've got it wrong, but from what I've always been told, it seems like being gay has to do with who you are physically attracted to, not who you can see as attractive (in the sense of 'so-and-so looks good today'). For instance, I find Monet's Waterlily Pond to be very aesthetically pleasing, but I don't want to have sex with it. Alright, a weird example, but you see the distinction, I hope... Smiley

I find Monet's Waterlily Pond to be very aesthetically pleasing, but I don't want to have sex with it

I don't understand you.

yeshua, you do not aesthetically speaking at least see or recognise though superficial it may be the beauty or the lack thereof in the same gender?

Perhaps he thinks if he admits that a man is good looking, then people will wonder if he's gay? I dunno if I've got it wrong, but from what I've always been told, it seems like being gay has to do with who you are physically attracted to, not who you can see as attractive (in the sense of 'so-and-so looks good today'). For instance, I find Monet's Waterlily Pond to be very aesthetically pleasing, but I don't want to have sex with it. Alright, a weird example, but you see the distinction, I hope... Smiley
indeed. which is why I said to myself me thinks the lady protests too much.

Calling YIM a lady is no way to get his bloom to blossom.

One must coax these things out carefully.
