  1. Hey,
    I have a question:
    Is homophobic hatred really such a problem, where you come from?
    The reason I ask is this: It doesn’t seem to be where I come from.
    However, I am not gay so how would I know. Homosexuality is a non issue for me and my friends, and when someone I have to associate with recently said something convincingly homophobic I was not really shocked as rather very curious. It has been a while since the last time I met an actual public homophobe. So you might understand, why homosexuality is normal for me.
    It has gotten to a point where I started feeling annoyed with the local gay pride activism, because to me it seemed like, they were beating a dead horse. They have the right to marry, adopt kids, live in peace and get mocked about as much as the rest of us do. What else?
    Maybe it is just me, but being tremendously kinky I always understood the concept of having no choice over your own sexuality. Maybe I live too sheltered a life. I mean even the right wing christian party here is in favor of same sex unions, alas not marriage. Hell, a recent poll among Catholics had an 80% majority in favor of gay marriage.

    Watching the news, I realize that being gay in Russia, or Uganda is still a potentially lethal affair. However, I find it hard to believe, that the land of the free and home of the brave, greatest nation on earth, world police, moral compass and bastion at once, country of the righteous, and I am sure so much more would still discriminate against their own citizens.
    Then again, reading my own naive words, maybe not. I just don’t know. So please enlighten me:
    If I were a gay teenager in the US, how rough would I actually have it?
    Obviously I thought about googling it, but I’d rather have a personal account from someone, than sifting through all the sensationalized “news” articles.

    Thank you for the entertaining insights you provide on this here blog.
    Best wishes

    PS: Reading it now, I just hope this isn’t too stupid and post it anyway….
