James, I believe very strongly that you are wrong and I would put good money on you never having known a gay couple who have brought up children.

I wonder what any gay members of Travellerspoint would think of your comments on the 'gay community'? Maybe you think they should post somewhere else?

Quoting Afrodiziac

quoting mel

I read some stuff about the psychology of attraction between men and women, but wonder how a gay person feels emotionally, in a relationship. Homosexual couples probably wouldnt have the same relationship dynamics, as hetro couples, would they?

lemme tell ya....a homosexual feels just the way you would feel with a homo or a hetro...cuz a homo cannot think of a hetro in that particular manner just like the way a hetro cannot think of a homo...cuz the feelin of being with a hetro for a homo is just close to the same of a homo being closely attaced to a hetro.....so itz imporatnt to know if ya can recollect as to who did ya ever go out wid an heto or a homo....cuz if ya feel just the way i do right now then probably u did go out wid an hetro n if ya dunt then probably it was a homo....in any circumstance i feel that feeling for both these knda relationships would be da same and since u have shunned away from humanity n have aroused this homo or a hetro (if ya can figure out) within u itz for ya to deternmine whether ur self an hetro or homo.

Have u been drinking or what?
If u are wanting me to respond to the above, u had better reword it, because I dont see what it has to do with my comment, about the psychology of attraction. I am guessing that u are saying men, women, gay men an gay women experience attraction in completely different ways. If so, then u are right. That is exactly what I was saying.

Yes Garry, I call you old fashioned, but, hey, not everyone has to think the same about certain issues, so...

Um ah!! Jessnz????? Not everybody has to think the same about some issues. I dont think people have a right to be prejudiced, against groups of people. As far as I can see Garry has no solid reason, to think that a gay couple would not make good parents.

I don't care what any gay members of Travellerspoint may think of my post. The only gay-related travel posts that I've read on this site have related to questions about the "gay scene" of a particular city. To me, this relates to clubs, saunas, bars, the availability of party drugs, and the location of "gay beats" which pretty much sums up the gay lifestyle. Come to think if it, this pretty much represents the gay "community" in Sydney of all ages, and the areas in which they live. With all this carry on, no wonder the gay "community" in Sydney is so grossly over-represented when it comes to instances of Sexually Trasmitted Diseases, AIDS, accidental drug over-doses, and other such lifestyle-related issues. I'm sure it's no different in any other city in the world.

Out of all the gay people I've worked with (and advertising seems to have quite a few), there's only 1 who answered to the "gay-scene" stereotype. In fact, most were in long-term, committed relationships with houses, mortgages, dogs, cats, summer vacations in the country, and so on.

A lot of straight people on TP are looking for advice on where to find the best party, the hottest girls, the cheapest drugs, and so on. It's most definitely not a lifestyle confined to the gay community. The vast majority of drug-seeking party people I've met were straight, actually.

And the fastest-growing segment of the population who are HIV+ are heterosexual women. That's a proven statistic, not a stereotype.

No, it is not a lifestyle confined to the gay community, but it is a lifestyle by which the "gay community", and people within the gay community of all ages, identifies itself. If it didn't, we wouldn't even be talking about the gay "community".

If you say that "fastest-growing segment of the population who are HIV+ are heterosexual women" then I have no reason not to believe you.

The fact of the matter is that in Western countries, AIDS is overwhelmingly an undeniably a disease which afflicts homosexuals in the vast majority of cases. No one denies this, not even the gay "community", so I'm not sure what your point is. Surely you're not saying that everyone in the community is equally vulnerable?

Here's a report from the US about HIV+ status of women. Women are far more vulnerable to AIDS the around the world due to physical makeup (semen-to-blood transmission of HIV), as well as their second-class status in 3rd world countries. They also risk passing on the disease to their unborn children.

Heterosexual women are indeed the fastest growing segment of the population who are becomming HIV+. The gay community was very sensitized to AIDS over the last few decades, and have by-and-large altered their behaviour accordingly (although statistics show that the better the medications to fight AIDS, the less cautious people are when it comes to protectin themselves).

HIV+ and AIDS are not confined to the gay community. Far, far from it. Perpertuating that stereotype is killing a lot of ignorant people.
