Wow, read the first post of this topic. Thats true until John Shaw doesnt like what you have to say.

You made a list of things you didnt like, good for you. I said all those things on a sub-forum that clearly states you can say anything except racist remarks, violent threats or spam. I did none of these. Your abuse of power that i hinted at in your little copy and paste session clearly is coming to fruition. This part of the forum is "unmoderated", keep your self loathing fingers out of it and let us enjoy ourselves. Just because you dont like what i say doesnt mean i cant say it.  This is what Ian said when he made this so please stop threatening me and that "say what again motherfucker" was something out of a junior high playground. Ignore me, id appreciate that, because you clearly cant respond like an adult to adult subjects. Stop acting like a bully online.

Are you 12 years old or something? Grow up!

Interesting response, but abortion and HOPING your child isn't gay are very different.

I was not referring to you. You clearly stated that you would ask a gay friend for advice, meaning that you would recognize a difference and address it, instead of ignoring it or saying it wouldn't matter like a politically correct nutjob.

I knew that posting this would result in at least one insecure person making an immature response (John Shaw). Not only did he not answer the question, he made a childish threat about "strikes". Id like to thank everyone else who was able to have an adult discussion about this. Especially Dalebert, who made a very informative point. Also, Dalebert HAS had to deal with the stereo types and the bigots, yet he was able to respond like an adult, unlike John Shaw. I'm really happy there was only one of us who wasn't grown up enough to participate in this discussion, but then again, what did we expect from someone who's last post was about "Legos".

I did however have a hard time believing those who said "it wouldn't matter" or "I wouldn't think about it". I would be thinking about it plenty and how it would effect my kid, and what I could do to maybe prevent some things and be supportive. Why would you ignore something that clearly needs to be addressed? I think some were afraid of forum backlash and posted their responses with that in mind. But to those who were able to be honest, thank you.

Currently playing: Skyrim, COD:MW3, Heroes of Might and Magic 3

Playstation 3 gamer tag: LiberatingRain

Other classics: Thief-Deadly Shadows, Fallout 3, Oblivion, Command & Conquer (the first one), Global Domination

Do you hope your child isnt gay? These statistics have many saying yes. We love our gay friends and family members, and it may be uncomfortable to tell them something like this. They may take offense to it or even claim that you are "homophobic", yes, the term that is thrown around whenever something perceived as negative about the GLBTC is mentioned. But this has nothing to do with how one feels about homosexuals, and only a heterophobic would think it does. 

 The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force "National Anti-Gay/Lesbian Victimization Report" concludes from its survey: 45% of gay males and 20% of lesbians surveyed reported having experienced verbal harrassment and or physical violence during high school as a result of their sexual orientation.

In a survey of lesbians and gay men in Pennsylvania, 33% of gay men and 34% of lesbians reported suffering physical violence at the hands of a family member as a result of their sexual orientation.

In a psychological study of 484 students at six community colleges conducted by Dr Karen Franklin, 18% of the men interviewed admitted that they had committed physical violence or threats against men and or women they perceived to be gay or lesbian.

Gay statistic studies over the past 7 years have indicated that 25% to 40% of young lesbians and gays have attempted suicide. ("Here For Life" Youth Sexuality Project)

Although homosexuals account for less than two percent of the population. they constitute about a third of child molesters.6 (6. K. Freund and R.I. Watson, "The Proportions of Heterosexual and Homosexual Pedophiles Among Sex Offenders Against Children: An Exploratory Study," )

In 2007 the Los Angeles Times reported the frequency of methamphetamine use is twenty times greater among homosexuals than in the general population

a national survey of female homosexuals was published in the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology which found that 75 percent of the approximate 2,000 respondents had pursued psychological counseling of some type, many for treatment of long-term depression or sadness

Eighty-four percent of GLBT students report being verbally harassed name-calling, threats etc. at school (GLSEN 2003).

Hate crimes against GLBT Americans are on the rise, even as other violent crimes continue to decline (FBI Hate Crimes Statistics 2004)

80% of lesbian, gay and bisexual youth report severe isolation problems. They experience social isolation, emotional isolation and cognitive isolation. (Hetrick. E.S. Martin.A.D., Journal of Homosexuality)

97% of students in public high schools report regularly hearing homophobic remarks from their peers. (Making Schools Safe for Gay and Lesbian Youth: Report of Mass. Governor's Commission)

53% of students report hearing homophobic comments made by school staff. (Making Schools Safe for Gay and Lesbian Youth: Report of Mass. Governor's Commission)

68% of adolescent gay males use alcohol and 44% use other drugs; 83% of lesbians use alcohol and 56% use other drugs. (Hunter. J. Unpublished research by the Columbia University HIV Center for Clinical and Behavioral Studies)

In a study of depression and gay youth, researchers found depression strikes homosexual youth four to five times more severely than their non-gay peers. (Making Schools Safe for Gay and Lesbian Youth: Report of Mass. Governor's Commission)

In closing, i ask you to be objective when asking yourselves this question. I also ask that our gay friends not to be offended by this question, as many of us feel it to be important. A yes to this question in NO WAY constitutes homophobia. Thank you for your time.

I think after hearing yesterdays show, many of us thought this to be a valid question. Especially after hearing Dalebert admit that he was trolling when he posted those nekkid dude pics. He has been asserting his homosexuality very often. What if we asserted our heterosexuality as much as that? He would accuse us of being homophobic or some other foolish thing. Dalebert, please dont get upset as you have in the past. This is simply a poll to find out what others think.

Dale needs to go to mod school. Many are unhappy with his behavior.
