Why can't people see the reason we see so many school shootings and depression, to name 2, is because of the fact kids aren't brought up in same type of family atmosphere they once were centuries ago.

I'm pretty sure the reason there were no school shootings centuries ago is because there weren't guns everywhere back then, and the few that were around took a good deal of time and effort to load and fire.

And guns were expensive, not just lying around the cabin for any crazy to grab. It is a myth that back in the good old days everyone and his dog was packing. That is only in the movies. Plus you were not going to waste precious ammo unless you were in danger or needing some food.

The strange connection between gay sex, marriage, adoption and school shootings is a new one for me. Have the shootings only occurred in states where gay marriage and/or adoption is legal? We need to look at all the countries that have legalized gay marriage (I think there are ten now, including South Africa and I think Nepal) to see if they are having similar outbreaks of random saw-gay-parent-having-sex  fueled violence in the schools.  :o

Well, here in Belgium the gays can marry AND adopt for some time now and the number of school shootings last year was ... zero. We did have a few school stabbings though. All of those perpetrated by what we refer to here as "North Africans"[1].
Somehow I doubt many of those have gay parents to walk in on.
None of the stabbings were fatal, btw.
 1. A vile PC term to avoid putting "Moroccan" or "Muslim" ... either put those or better yet put no reference to the perpetrator's origins. In fact, get this, I'm technically breaking Belgian law by pointing this out to you.

Hell, if I saw my parents having sex, I'd want to shoot someone. If I saw my grandparents having sex, I'd want to shoot myself. But I think that may be universal, having nothing to do with whether the relatives[1] were gay or straight.

I mean, does anyone want to see their parents doing the nasty? In any way shape or form?
 1. I almost typed "relations"

I find it interesting that Cutdogg focuses purely on male acts of homosexuality. So, Dogg, lesbians are okay, right? Cos that sh!t is sexy...
You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

But what about these innocent children that get adopted into this hell hole. What about the poor little girl who never has a mommy to teach her how to be a woman, or a daddy to be that father figure we all need.
Children can learn about baseball without having a pitcher and a catcher as parents.

My daughter has a school friend who is a gay young man with two lesbian moms. Now how did that happen? Cats and dogs will be mating in the streets next! :o

Yes, but generally cats with cats and dogs with dogs.   ;)

  I think you will find there's going to be all kinds crossed orientations among parents and children. Just take a deep breath and chill awhile.

Impositor, NoGods was joking - though I can see how for someone new to the site you wouldn't necessarily have spotted that .....  take a deep breath and chill!
Just because you've always done it that way doesn't mean it's not incredibly stupid.

I am totally chill with gays, lesbians, kids, cats, dogs, lesbian cats and gay dogs. I was just trying to be funny, making some fun of the concern trolling about the supposed dangers gays pose to their children. Think about it: 99% of gay people were raised by heterosexuals, and seeing their parents kiss or make out was surely the least of their problems.

I imagine that people who freak out about gay people raising kids[1]would worry that the gay young man raised by lesbians will grow up totally confused, thinking he has to have sex with..... a woman.  ;)

Cats and dogs will be mating in the streets as long as there are streets. It's disgusting. We should ban streets. And they should get a room. >:(
 1. because the kids will catch teh gay, or will be traumatized by seeing their gay parents having gay sex, or will be bullied by idiots (who should be dressed in full drag, tied to comfy chairs and forced to watch Priscilla Queen of the Desert hundreds of times like in Clockwork Orange)

It is worthwhile to read the entire article, which I'm sure you have:

Quote
“in an article published in a 2006 issue of the Journal of Research in Personality, Gettysburg College researcher Brian Meier and his colleagues argue that Adams’s findings can be better interpreted as the homophobic group’s “defensive loathing” of gay males rather than a secret attraction. Drawing an analogy to other phobias, Meier and his coauthors state that, “We believe it is inaccurate to argue that spider phobics secretly desire spiders or that claustrophobics secretly like to be crammed into dark and tight spaces.” These investigators reason that Adams’s homophobic sample experienced erections in response to the gay male porn due not to sexual arousal, but due to their anxiety over the images, which in turn provoked the physiological response of penile engorgement.

I have never accepted the argument of Adam's et al: it is far too convenient. Basically, you look like an idiot if you feel that homosexuality is at all unpleasant.  Do you dislike the Christian establishment and the evangelical churches because secretly you wish you were a member but cannot admit that to yourself, otherwise you would lose face with your peers? How unlikely is that?

What is lacking is the ability to empathise or understand. The play/film Watermelon manWiki makes the point and is well worth seeing.

I cannot see why anyone would want to eat a tomato, I feel queasy even watching a tomato eaten - I have no desire to be a tomato or eat one - I cannot image it - and I have no desire to change. Am I a bad person?
I'm not saying that homophobia = repressed homosexuality, but in my case-- this was true.

You cannot see why anyone would want to eat a tomato, but it tastes good to some. You must know that because it doesn't taste good to you, doesn't make it bad. But the queasiness? It's just a tomato, that's something you need to get over. No one is spilling blood all over the street.

You need to actually rank things by an objective level of intensity rather than taste. i.e Eating a fruit, killing someone, drinking a glass of water, being late to work. i.e your response to watching a murder should not equal eating a fruit.

(Jumping overboard to make a point)

Welcome to the forum albright!

.....your response to watching a murder should not equal eating a fruit.

See, now it's exactly that kind of imagery that gives monolight the heebie-jeebies.....   :o
