That's an interesting approach to dealing with the situation. I think that may be how some of the situation here finally gets resolved. I'm not an advocate for the situation, but I do recognize that there are a lot of people who feel that they simply do not fit properly into their assigned role in society as being a certain gender with feelings for the opposite sex. It's not only a fact of life out here, but it is very, very common, and it's not like any amount of legislation or counseling is going to make individuals who believe their preferences to be homosexual, to be anything else.
Within the last few years, there have been a number of women at work who have been married for years and years and have (thankfully grown) children, and they have now decided that they are lesbian and are living that lifestyle. Strip away the Biblical issues, and I think that there are far less "legitimate" arguments to the situation. I'll admit I don't quite understand their feelings and can never conceive of changing preferences myself, but I respect the fact that they are still the people I always knew them to be while they were in hetrosexual relationships and what they do in their private life has not impacted anything at work.
To clarify though, my position is that ANY person who acts bizarre and flaunts their sexuality (through clothing and/or act) in public seems somewhat reprehensible. We're heading up to Venice Beach and Malibu in a few hours, and we will be skating through crowds of people with men in leather chaps, with nipple and, um. . ."other" areas not only pierced, but very literally CHAINED to their chosen partner du jour. They walk this way down the boardwalk, and many wear studded dog collars (sometimes being "led" by a partner), and other things that I consider bizarre and quite offensive (especially the piercings and chains plus seeing their butts and other cutouts areas). I don't want to see that on a heterosexual couple though either - or on ANY person for that matter. Yuck! The lesbian women up there also do some pretty bizarre things as well, but they seem to do less chains. Always worries me when I'm on rollerblades, since it's hard to stop suddenly, and these guys try to cross the bike paths where we skate. I've had to ditch into the sand to avoid them at times. I mean, can you imagine how much THAT would hurt if we skated into the chains!!!!
I'm not macking on my husband while we're skating or in public, so I'd appreciate it if they would respect others the same way and not put on displays either, but I'm afraid their displays get rather graphic sometimes. It's that type of thing that tends to make people think the worst of the homosexual lifestyle. Don't know what percentage it is that do that, but I have to think that it is a minority of folks engaging in the freaky stuff.
