Hey people,

I'm writing a book and I need to know what the public think of gay people. Do any of you have any experiences or think strongly about it???

It would help-thanx!

~Anya

P.S. The book is called:

"The book of the publisized world of lesbians, gays and bisexuals."

    Don't bother me. Every(wo)man for themselves.

    I do sometimes feel uncomfortable if two men are all over each other in public but it kind of gets on my nerves when a straight couple do the same.

    Over to me I suppose ;)

    For me, being bi isn't an issue really. It's more what other people think of it that kinda makes it an issue.

    To be honest though, my insecurities are mostly about what people directly around me think, not what people in general think about it. Int hat sense, I reckon more and more people are "coming round to the idea", although you are always going to get people who can't stand gays. Just like you get people who can't stand Asian people, or who can't stand Christians or whatever.

    Looking into the way the public relates to gay people on reality TV (Will Young etc) might be an idea too :)

    I have no problem with gay people, lesbians or bisexuals. What I do have a problem with is the behaviour of those that make a big deal out of their sexuality, or those that endanger (or try to endanger) others with their sexuality. For example, I personally do not it when gay or bisexual men act flamboyant and OTT, or when they insult women. I also do not like the behaviour of gay or bisexual men who choose to not use a condom during sex. I also do not like the behaviour of lesbian or bisexual women who enforce sexist male-bashing views on others.

    I myself have had several lesbian experiences which I will not go into detail with, and I am not entirely heterosexual, but I believe noone particularly is.

    The quarrels I have about homosexuality are similar to those I have of heterosexuality. For example I do not like the behaviour of heterosexual males who act over the top, and sleep around. I also do not like the behaviour of heterosexual females who do the same. I do not like explicit signs of affection in public from gays or straights. It can be off-putting.

    (P.S. You may put this and my user name into your book :p)

    A lot of bisexual and gay men (not me btw) act like that because they've maybe had prejudices in earlier life, or just because they're made that way. Like when a mate gives me a nipple gripple/tit nip, I scream. I honestly can't help that, and it's got nothing to do with where I stick my genitals.

    I don't really get the insulting women bit either. Obviously insulting women isn't good, but they don't tend to do it more than your avergae Joe. Why state the obvious? You may as well have put "I don't like it when they murder people", and I'm willing to bet a lot more lesbians slag off men, than gay men slag off women.

    Anyway, I agree with a lot of what you've said, just thought I'd make the point :)

    I've always got on really well with gay guys and girls, one of my work supervisors is a lesbian and she's brilliant.

    I don't like seeing gay people kissing etc in the street though, it makes me feel quite uneasy and just doesn't seem right.

    Overall though I think it's important to see gay people as no different to anyone else you come across.

    I only have a problem with it until it's thrown in my face, ie, all that Gay Pride bullshit. Woah, you're gay, I don't give a shit. You don't see me going around with big banners going "HEY EVERYBODY LOOK AT ME! I'M STRAIGHT!"

    Or guys who walk around with OTT limp-wristedness in the street, that annoys lots of "normal" gay guys apparently.

    Yeah, but that`s only because lesbianism got so mixed up in all the militant feminist bullshit. I think those women are lesbian on principle more than anything.... you know, the sort that agree with such slogans as "All men are rapists". :/

    Ok, well Gay blokes (this is in my experience with 10 or so gay blokes im not stereotyping all gay blokes with this.. just so you know!) have been the most friendly, easy to talk to, tactile, loving, funny people that ive ever met. But, say one thing they dont like, talk to one person they dont like (thus being a 'traitor') .. or slagging of Madonna in one case (big mistake) has meant that ive seen them turn from lovely people into the bitchiest, evil, most coniving and basically horrible people, in a split second. Having said that, a few of my best friends are gay, and i :heart: them so much!

    Lesbians... im wary of getting into any sort of relationship with lesbians now. When ive got into a relationship with a lesbian they've turned from normal to psycho obsessed in a matter of days. On two occasions ive been proposed to in under a week of meeting the person, and on one occasion, my ex gf was asking me to move in with her after just four days. With the 'love' word coming into every single relationship within a week, every time. cant handle that. But the second they find out im bi. They dump me! :confused:

    Bisexuals... love them :D

    Aaaaw i luvs you too lol :p.

    Right well i'm also bi-sexual & i don't see a problem with it, although i haven't told my family this, just you lot on here & my partner. I think that its a personal thing & i son't feel the need to tell everyone.
    I don't think it matters what your sexualilty is, it doesnt make you any less of a person.

    Exactely. You get nice people and arses in all walks of life. If a certain person is comfortable with being gay, black or a politician then why should anyone get upset about it.

    I'm not bothered about whether someone is bisexual, gay or lesbian, so long as he or she is happy. Who am I to comment? Naturally, some people are going to feel uncomfortable and perhaps much worse, but that is life.

    As Ninja and RiseandShine said, I really dont mind people with a different sexuality to my own, I just dont like straight bashers and the rainbow brigade trying to convert people and make out they are special.

    I don't mind either - but has anyone notice how Gay men fall into certain categories?

    Like some Gay men appear to act and talk like any other man,

    But then other are really full on - well hard Skin heads and then

    Some are right feminine.. I know two particular gay guys that fit this group and they are so feminine - they are more like women then most women !!

    I saw a wedding video of a this girl's hen/wedding shower night and right in the middle of it was this gay guy I know doing all the other girl's hair and makeup!! - I definately think guys like this were born Gay not like they grew up and cose it .. i think these ones for sure were born to be gay form the start.

    personally i believe its their choice and it doesnt harm ne1 so let them do their own thing !!!

    although there is a gay lad (really camp) at my school who hangs around in the big group im wiv, and we dont get along at all (not his sexuality just the person) so many ppl see that as homophobic; ridiculous really, cant not like some1 because they're gay lol
