Homosexuality Details

 

Again, homosexuals may live their sexual-romantic lives.

I may not agree with it, I may not understand it, but freedom means they can do it.

America is about freedoms, and you, and I, have the freedoms to do whatever pleasures we want (so long as it does not harm others). Thus I have no problem with people who are homosexual, in the basic act itself.

However, discretion is good.

You can kiss a toad for all I care, just don't be so vocal about it.

 

Again, what homosexuals fail to understand is that it is NOT the sexual behavior which bothers us, rather it is a many other serious issues.

Again, many homosexuals do these offensive things (all unrelated to the act itself):

1. They call attention to themselves. They talk about themselves when it is not appropriate.

2. They demand separate groups when it is not necessary.

3. They demand schools teach homosexuality, and force students to listen.

4. They demand businesses give them special recognition, and special attention.

5. They demand businesses and government give them equal representation in every department and on every board.

 

Lets talk about each these.

For reference, I always choose two other activities: Playing Tennis, and Coin Collecting. Contrasting these to homosexuality, you will see more clearly that it is not the act itself that bothers us, but those 5 issues I listed above.

Also for reference, note that I have lived in three of the cities with largest homosexual populations: San Francisco, Dallas, and Austin. I've seen a number of these, I've worked with, lived near, been friends with, a number of these people.

 

1. Homosexuals call attention to themselves. They talk about themselves when it is not appropriate.

Most people at work don't tell all about their private lives, and certainly not sexually related.

For example, I collect antiques, but only a handful of coworkers over the years ever knew that.

For example, I am most happy wearing jeans and visiting a coffee shop, or going dancing at night. Almost no coworkers know those things about me. I dress professionally and discuss work. These other things never comes up. We don't have that kind of time.

And heterosexuals rarely discuss sex at work.

But, homosexuals... Their lines basically go like this: "I'm homosexual. Don't discriminate me because I'm homosexual."

Well...we wouldn't have known you were homosexual until you told us!! So just don't tell.

Secondly, who cares? It is like a tennis player saying: "| play tennis. Don't discriminate me because I play tennis!" Most people would say "and?" "so?" No one would care. It is not related to work. Why bring it up at all?

That is what I want from homosexuals on this first point. Don't call attention to yourself. Don't tell us you are homosexual. Don't talk about your sexual encounters. And, guess what? We'll never know. And even when we do know, we wont care. Just help me with the work as you were hired for. Thanks.

 

2. They demand separate groups when it is not necessary.

I dislike separate groups as a general rule anyway, but this I find even more offensive.

They don't want to just celebrate the Irish heritage, they want to be homosexual Irish, and have their own homosexual Irish group marching in the parade.

They don't want to just be Republican, they want to be homosexual Republicans, and have their own homosexual Republican group.

If it were tennis players, there would be a separate Irish Tennis Players group in the parade. There would be a separate Republican Tennis group. This is silly.

 

What I would like them to do regarding this second point is this:

Your being homosexual is irrelevant. It is also divisive. If you really want to show your pride (such as being Irish) then join the group as a whole.

Join the Irish parade as an Irish. Join the Republicans as Republican. Talk about all those other things you have in common, and don't bring up an issue that is irrelevant and divides the group.

 

3. They demand schools teach homosexuality, and force students to listen.

This is a big one.

Education is tough as it is - lots to cover. Heck, 4,000 years of world history gets covered only in one semester!! There is so much Chemistry I would love to teach, but we don't have the time.

So there is no place to have separate assemblies and speeches regarding homosexuality.

It would be like having a separate assembly and whole lessons on coin collecting. Coin collecting is nice, but we don't have the time, and this is not the place.

What I would like them to do regarding the third point is this: Keep your agenda out of school. It is not the place.

 

4. They demand businesses give them special recognition, and special attention.

They consider themselves a minority. At best, they are only 1% of the population. Yet they want special notations.

They force companies to teach diversity - with homosexual issues being part of that. What a waste of company time!

They force companies to have pages on websites about homosexuality. Ridiculous! It is irrelevant. But also, if we have a page for homosexuality, then we need a page on heterosexuals, a page on tennis players, and a page on coin collectors. This could go on forever!

Note also that many people find homosexuality distasteful. There are many who don't like to see homosexuality stuff, so why show it? Why talk about it?

Finally, one's sexual views are totally and completely irrelevant to work. Were you hired because you were homosexual? No. So what difference does it make?

Again, we don't care if you play tennis, collect coins, kiss a toad, or be homosexual. It is not related to work. There is no need to waste a company's time, waste all the employees busy time, as well as offend a lot of your co-workers.

What I would like them to know regarding the fourth point is this: If you want acceptance among your co-workers, then drop the issue and discussion of homosexuality completely from the workplace! (Or I will have to bore you with the details of my coin collecting!)

 

5. They demand businesses and government give them equal representation in every department and on every board.

There aren't enough people for that.

More important, it is also silly to try to have one of everything everywhere.

Should we have one tennis player in every department? Should we have one coin collector in every city council? How about representing those who like astronomy? Or watch science fiction movies?

It is silly to try to have a representative of everything everywhere. The job of the department, the job of the government groups (like the water board or utilities) has nothing to do with homosexuality. (Nor science fiction movies or tennis.)

The homosexuals should stop trying to push one of themselves in every department in every area of business and government. It is silly for any department to have do that.

 

To sum up in total,

- it is not the act of being homosexual which bothers us. You are free to do that.

- We would like homosexuals to be like the rest of America (you know, those co-workers and neighbors you need to get along with).

This means: Don't call attention to yourself, don't create separate groups, don't force discussion of your behavior in schools or businesses.

In other words, live as you want - just at home and on your own time.
